Where Can We Take You?
Culinary Vacations That Surprise & Delight
UNIQUE & DELICIOUS EXPERIENCES
Our culinary vacations give you unparalleled access to the local culture. We are committed to sharing the cultural highlights and food traditions of a region through up close and personal experiences you might never find on your own. By pairing our authentic travel style with a unique food focus, our small group tours delve deep into the world’s most exciting cultures.
KNOWLEDGEABLE & FRIENDLY GUIDES
Our experienced, local tour guides are passionate and knowledgeable about their homeland, and dedicated to helping you get the most out of your vacation. They bring your itinerary to life, with their personal, local connections that open doors to the very best food, markets, restaurants and cultural experiences. Guests rate our tour guides consistently at 9.7 out of 10 on post-trip surveys.
SMALL GROUPS THAT HELP YOU “UN-TOUR”
Many of our guests tell us they are not “group tour” people, which is ideal because we’re not a traditional group tour company. With us, you will travel with a small group of like-minded travelers which never exceeds 10-12 guests. This micro group size gives us access to experiences that simply cannot accommodate groups of 15-20 guests like you might find with other small group tour operators.
CONNECT WITH THE LOCALS
Whether you’re exploring a Zulu tribal village in South Africa, or taking part in a traditional Japanese tea ceremony, there’s no better way to get to know a place than connecting with the locals. When you travel with us you have countless opportunities to chat with a winemaker, make friends with a farmer, or learn from a chef — allowing you to absorb the culture, lifestyle and attitude of the places you visit.
