We design small, exquisitely focused trips that reflect the passions of our clients. We see travel as a way to open ourselves to new experiences through incredible art, delicious food, and the adventure of exploring new places. Our tours are designed to foster a sense of curiosity, creativity, and fun. We care about sustaining the places we go and maintain strong relationships with people and small business that we return to time and time again. We run a number of planned itineraries to our favorite destinations, and are also available for custom travel.
We take a small number of curated trips each year. These journeys highlight a carefully selected set of meals and places that we find deep inspiration from. These itineraries are born out of extensive exploration and relationships. These trips offer introductions to the countries we love and offer an experience that allows travelers to be transported to the uniqueness of each place through food, art, and culture. Check out our planned itineraries below!
Also we create unique trips for you, by offering custom itineraries that offer incredible experiences based on your passions. Please contact us if you’d like to set up a custom trip with us.
