A Matter of Taste on a Food and Wine Tour
Food and wine tours have the ability to boost any vacation and add to the joy of travel. On any private tour to Africa, Asia, or South America, we’re happy to add some tantalizing food experiences to your itinerary. If you’re keen on a trip that’s entirely food-themed, Enchanting Travels experts can curate a gastronomic tour suited to you.
Every African city has an exciting food scene. In Mombasa, sail aboard a floating restaurant, the Tamarind Dhow, serving the finest Swahili seafood and Kenyan beef. At Test Kitchen in Cape Town, an internationally acclaimed chef presents Mama African cuisine with a twist.
Uncork the good times on a wine tour in the Cape Winelands, South Africa. Enjoy gourmet dining, and vineyard visits with estate managers in Stellenbosch. In Stellenbosch we also offer a superb foodie walk with multiple stops to taste seasonal local products. Tour Constantia Valley, the birthplace of South Africa’s wine industry, or take a tram journey through Franschhoek, making stops at famous wine estates along the way.
Throughout South America you will find superlative food and drink. Dine at Peru’s most avant-garde restaurant, Mil, set among Inca ruins near Cusco, which specializes in reviving Andean ancestral cuisine. Or try Peruvian Nikkei cuisine at a Michelin star restaurant in Lima. In Argentina be sure to indulge in a dinner that includes the best asado steaks in the country, alongside a tango performance and cocktails.
Chilean wines are legendary. Sure to hit the spot, particularly with a gourmet lunch, is a wine tour of the Maipo Valley vineyards, the oldest wine producing region of Chile. Or squeeze in a trip to the lesser-known Millahue Valley, where the uber-luxurious Viña Vik winery and design hotel presents a unique experience and outstanding farm-to-table food.
For lovers of spices and curries, the array of food and cuisines in India is astonishing. Every part of the country offers a sensual experience to the foodie. Observe cooks prepare your Chettinad meal at Visalam, in Tamil Nadu. On the sand dunes of the Thar Desert, in the light of a bonfire, savor a traditional Rajasthani meal with a background score of Manganiyar folk singers.
Great food tours are not just about consuming excellent meals. Elevate your travel experience with a culinary class and home-hosted dinners in a city in India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, or Thailand. Sign up for a Khmer cooking lesson in Cambodia or a sushi-making session in Japan. For authentic, imaginative food journeys the only limit is your palate and imagination.
