Satisfy your craving for memorable food and wine experiences with a hands-on culinary tour

When has your pizza dough been tossed long enough? How can you tell if a greenish Provençal tomato is actually ripe? And just how far can sunny walks through vineyards, villages, and olive groves go to exercise your imagination and stimulate your taste buds? 

Join us on a food and wine tour for tasty insights.

Our local guides use food traditions to open doors to a region’s cultural life and history. Shoulder to shoulder with the locals, you’ll forage in markets piled high with produce and fresh-caught seafood. You’ll be invited into kitchens for casual culinary instructions with home cooks, professional chefs and cookbooks authors. Just picture yourself talking (and tasting) with bakers and cheese-makers or stalking the woods with a truffle hunter. And of course, you’ll sit down to indescribable meals, from a picnic on a countryside walk to Michelin-starred dinners. 

Are you traveling as a party of one? Wonderful!

Our culinary tour approach to the food and wine of a region is ideal for you. You’ll always squeeze the tomatoes, knead the dough, and sit down to superior meals in the congenial company of other travelers as focused on food and wine as you are. In fact, fully a third of our guests are traveling on their own. There’s always a spot at our table for you!
