Shore Excursions with The International Kitchen

Taking a cruise in the Mediterranean? Why not add on something special, like a one-day cooking lesson? We can arrange Shore Excursions from most Mediterranean ports in Italy, France, and Spain. We organize transfers, cooking lessons, tours, winery visits, meals, or any combination thereof.

If you're docking in Civittavecchia, you might want to book one of our fabulous Rome cooking classes. If you are stopping in Venice, we offer a number of cooking classes and excursions that can be done as a shore excursion. In Naples? How about a private transfer to Sorrento for a cooking class followed by lunch?

France and Spain are also popular spots, whether you are stopping in Marseille or Normandy, in Barcelona or in Màlaga, we can help organize an amazing excursion for you.

When choosing a shore excursion, it is important to keep in mind the amount of time you have at hand. Most classes and tours can be confirmed for as few as 2 people! We can usually arrange private transfers at an additional cost. Please write for details, or call our toll-free number: 800-945-8606. It is always a pleasure to speak to our clients to help them choose the best options available!

Keep in mind that we also offer some cruising itineraries ourselves. Some of these can be found on our website, such as our wonderful Cook on a Luxury Barge in the wonderful (and oft overlooked) Languedoc region of France. This tour gives you the chance to take your own cruise for 4 people with cooking lessons, excursions, and amazing cuisine. Or, if you wish to travel to Southeast Asia, check out our Cruise on the Mekong River, a wonderful 12-night exploration of Vietnam and Cambodia.

Finally, we have also arranged private culinary cruises for groups in a variety of locations, including Croatia and Greece. If you have a group and would like to organize the best private, food-based trip for your group, let us know!
