Don't you love sharing an amazing meal or an incredible place with friends who share the same passion? Every year we offer a few group trips for those who want to experience the joy of food travel along with all the historic and cultural sights each region offers. We limit the size of the group so we can fully experience the local specialties that make a place unique and provide you the time for your explorations.
Even Travel Professionals have bucket lists, many inspired by our clients, and we bet you have a long list of places on your travel wishlist as well. We also have a long list of the places we love, destinations and experiences to be shared. Take a look and be inspired by our list and share yours with us!
Having a great trip in a comfortable and safe environment is what all travelers want. Along with working with individuals and small groups, there's a whole world for parents to share with their children before those years fly too quickly by. We strive to work with partners who want to make your travels enjoyable and encompassing while being aware of the needs of our community for safety, comfort and inclusion. Not to mention keeping everyone engaged and entertained!
Do you have a 5-year Travel Plan, a 10-year one? Regardless of your age, it's never too early to create your long-term travel wishlist. As we get older, making a plan that works with your lifestyle and goals just makes sense. Think of us as you would a financial planner, someone to listen, discuss and assist in making those short and long range travel dreams a reality.
We've been doing this a long time. Over the years we have strived to work with suppliers we trust and we believe in a future of sustainable travel. As the world re-opens, we share the joys of being able to travel again as well as acknowledging the changes in how we journey our planet.
At TASTE Tour & Travel we believe local food and drink experiences are an essential part of any journey, a connection to the land and the people that is as important as the sights themselves.
Does the idea of a great meal in an exotic locale appeal to you? Finishing a day filled with historic and cultural sites with a specially-crafted dinner at a Michelin-starred restaurant? Tasting a pristine fresh oyster on the French coast? Relaxing with a glass of wine on the banks of a romantic Portuguese river? Do you fantasize about a perfect plate of pasta in the Italian countryside? Sampling a delicious wedge of Spanish cheese with the farmer who produced it? Enjoying an aperitif while basking in the glow of a sunset along a South American shore?
You've got TASTE.
A few times a year we decide we want to travel with some fellow foodies. We keep the groups on the smaller side, stay in nice hotels, travel comfortably and enjoy the cultural and historic sights but with a focus on a region's authentic culinary heritage. You are going to love this.
