- Food & Wine/Culinary Experience Tours
“Tours” can also mean very different things with different suppliers. Some guided tours involve the entire group moving together, pretty much at all times, from one point of interest to the next. But most guided tours mix-in time fo individual exploration. We can help match you with a tour that provides you with as much individual exploration time as you prefer. Some tours essentially guide you from city-to-city, and then just provide a concierge/tour coordinator to help with your own individual itinerary for each city when you’ve arrived.
