Find your perfect trip

We believe nothing evokes the essence of a place quite like its food and drink. One of the best ways to understand a country’s people and culture is through your stomach on luxury food holidays.

Delve into the flavours of your destination and indulge your taste buds with luxury gourmet holidays like farm-to-table dining in New Zealand, going on a pintxo crawl through San Sebastián or eating your way through Bangkok’s street food stalls with your private guide. On a luxury culinary holiday, you’ll get to try delicious dishes that only the locals know in the cafés and restaurants only locals go to, utilising recipes that have seldom changed over generations.

But of course, it’s not just food that lets you get a bite out of a destination; its drinks also give you a taste. Wine-tasting holidays are a ‘vine’ way to witness a country’s full-blooded character amid a sun-soaked landscape. For the ultimate holiday wine-tasting experience, you can create your wine blend at a family-run winery in Argentina, or you can hop around the world-class vineyards of South Africa aboard a wine tram. Whether it’s the vintages of California’s Napa Valley or Mauritius’s more unsung lychee wines, we have the perfect luxury wine tour for you.
