India really is something else and has to be seen to be believed - one of the best countries to enjoy on a tour experience and probably my favourite tour destination.
Be very ready for ten days of fabulous sensory overload in India. We give ourselves over to the very different locations of Jaipur, Goa, Kolkata and Darjeeling. India is a land of extremes and our tour encompasses spicy cooking lessons, shopping, magical candle lit feasts, camel cart rides, farm and village visits, accommodation in old palaces and sumptuous resorts.
We try traditional fabric block printing in Jaipur, cook with coconut and seafood in the beach paradise of Goa, enjoy a Bengali feast in a beautiful heritage apartment in Kolkata and learn how to taste and grade tea in Darjeeling.
So come and join us... India awaits!

IMPORTANT: For this tour you must be fit and healthy with no mobility issues. There is a lot of walking involved and the temperatures are hot.

About our tours
Our mission has always been to provide really authentic gastronomic and cultural experiences, far from the well-trodden tourist circuits and into the homes, restaurants and kitchens of people with real food soul.
We sample everything, from the chic to the humble because... variety is the spice of life! As usual the most difficult task has been to choose between all those delicious recipes... those tempting wines... those magical interiors... those overflowing markets... Someone's got to do it - why not you? I hope you can join us.
