Welcome to sensory heaven for food-lovers. These itineraries invite you to experience great food from every angle. They include casual cooking instructions in local kitchens. Activities vary to take advantage of seasonal events. So, for example, on a cooking tour of Italy, we walk through lemon groves on the Amalfi Coast and see how the lemon liquor called limoncello is made. Of course, from Italy to France, our culinary tours include quality time in vineyards and farms as well as at the stove…plus visits to markets, bakers, cheesemakers and more.

All offer non-cooking options for travel companions who don’t want to spend time in the kitchen, as well as walks, visits to sites of historic interest, and the full-time services of a local guide.
