Reservations will also be made for you at the best restaurants in Adelaide.

One day, enjoy a private excursion to McLaren Vale, an important agricultural region known for vineyards, olive groves, and nut and fruit orchards. Visit top local wineries to sample the fine Shiraz wines produced in McLaren Vale, as well as other varietals such as Grenache, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot. Enjoy lunch at a winery restaurant that incorporates local farm products. Alternatively today, venture to the Clare Valley, one of Australia’s oldest wine regions, which is famous for Riesling.

Fly to Perth, the sunny capital of Western Australia, and continue to Margaret River, one of Australia’s premier wine regions.

We absolutely LOVED India in every way! The cookery lesson and lunch in Udaipur was great…the lunch was delicious, the house was lovely and they were so warm and welcoming.

Japan was excellent—we all had a blast. Your attention to detail and your ability to be foodie-focused and find outstanding guides sets you apart.
~ R.S., St. Petersburg, FL

One of the highlights of the trip to Bali was the cooking class you arranged in Ubud. Our instructor was the owner of the restaurant and they were so accommodating to our tastes and created a menu just for us.
