How would you like to have a tour custom designed for you, by travel experts who have been helping travelers find the best and most authentic experiences for over 20 years? Here at The International Kitchen, it’s as easy as giving us a call or sending us an email to get us started.
There are many ways we can create a custom tour. One is to customize one of our already existing itineraries. You want to “Cook in the Heart of Chianti” but only have 3 days available? Or you want “A Culinary Adventure in Puglia,” but want to take one day to look up your third cousins or visit your ancestral village? This is the type of custom tour we design frequently.
Another frequent customization we make to our tours is to add on services. Are you doing a week-long cooking vacation on the Amalfi Coast and want to add on a few days in Rome, with a guided visit of the Vatican, and a couple nights in Naples with a pizza-making class? Or have you booked a cooking vacation in Portugal and want to add a visit to Sintra or Fatima, and a couple of extra nights in Lisbon? We can add pretty much any services to your trip, including: hotel nights, guided cultural and gastronomic tours, transfers, additional meals, and train tickets or car rental.
Sometimes our travelers want a longer cooking vacation than what they see on our website. For example, do you want a culinary tour in France that includes more hands-on cooking classes and exposes you to a variety of regional cuisines and wines? We might pair together a short trip in Normandy, followed by some custom-designed days in Paris, and ending with a week in Provence. We can even create a foodie holiday of your dreams by combining cooking vacations to several different countries.
We can also include destinations you don’t see on our website. With so many years in the travel industry, we are experts in many different destinations, and we have first-rate contacts throughout the world that can help us design your ideal vacation.
If you would like to talk to us about a custom tour, here are a few things to consider: how many people are in your party? (We can design custom tours even for solo travelers.) What time of year do you want to travel? Do you have a destination in mind? How long do you want to be gone? Do you have a budget? How much cooking do you want to do? Have you thought about the type of accommodation you prefer? We can offer trips with accommodations in everything from charming B&Bs and farmhouses to luxury villas and hotels.
So whether you want to add on one night to an existing itinerary or start from scratch designing a personalized culinary vacation, we are your one-stop destination for planning the trip of a lifetime.
