The Culinary Tours 

Our culinary tours are designed as insider trips to the Mediterranean regions of Provence and Italy where we explore the locale via market, winery, farms and garden visits as well as regional cooking lessons. The tours include a broad range of experiences and we cover quite a bit of area, so guests come away with a deeper understanding and appreciation of the destinations. From the base of high end boutique and luxury hotels, we head out most days by 10 am and return by 4 pm.  To the intimacy of the places we visit and to the experience, our tours are limited and designed for up to 10 guests.  Accommodations are included in the price of the tour. For a full list of details please see below. The price for the 2013- 2014 Culinary Tours is $4500.
