    The focus really was on food which was the purpose if the trip. We got to try so many dishes that we would not have tried if we were on our own. We had may authentic local experiences which added much to our understanding of the food and culture.

Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you offer solo tours rather than group tours?

    We do not offer solo tours but we do however have a lot of Independent tours. A self-guided adventure allows independent travellers to travel along without a guide. The tour guide essentially acts as a concierge to ensure you have the necessities - accommodation, transportation, and some pre-booked activities. Most travellers who book this option are budget backpackers, but you can choose from different standards of accommodation.
