Food and Wine Tours

One of the most satisfying ways to savour a new destination is to taste your way around with a food and wine tour. After all, that’s half the fun of travel. New flavours, new textures and incredible new smells are guaranteed, and depending on where you go, maybe a few local drops to go with it. Foodie tours focus on not just sampling regional cuisines and wines though. They’ll also often take you to explore foodie hotspots like markets and artisan delis, incorporate authentic cooking classes, and allow you to meet local chefs and winemakers. From France to Burma and Australia, we have a wide range of tours to whet your appetite.

The most popular destinations for food and wine holidays are, of course, France and Italy. Who could resist going truffle-hunting in Umbria, wine-tasting their way around Tuscany and treating themselves to traditional homemade pizza and pasta? And with all those amazing pastry shops, famous wine regions and fine dining establishments across France, it’s no wonder. But there are many other places to indulge on your food and wine holiday. Spain and Portugal are also popular, as is the glamorous Napa Valley in California.

If you’re looking for a more exotic destination to loosen your belt, consider a gourmet holiday to Tunisia, South Africa, Argentina or Chile. Or duck over to Malaysia, Vietnam or Hong Kong to get a taste of Asia’s spicy origins and fresh fusions. Were you hoping to stick closer to home? There are many fabulous haunts to explore across Australia and New Zealand, like the Margaret River, Barossa Valley and Marlborough wine regions, or the craft breweries of Nelson at the tip of the South Island. We even have a food and wine cruise. Let the wine and cheese tastings, coffee appreciation workshops, cocktail demonstrations and a star celebrity chef restaurant come to you on the high seas.
