Journeys of Distinction has added two Australian Wine Tours plus ‘A Taste of Spain’ tour that are designed to appeal to foodies, wine aficionados and culture lovers.
The operator's managing director, Karen Gee, said: “We are delighted to be able to offer these new tours to our customers. They really are something special - featuring some of the best food and drink available in the world and in some of the globe’s most beautiful settings. Food and drink is at the very heart of every culture and entire histories can be shaped by a country’s cuisine. There is no better way to experience the history, beauty and taste of a nation’s culinary pulse than being right at the heart of that nation. With our Taste of Spain and Australian Wine Tours we are offering a unique opportunity to celebrate and enjoy both old and new world cuisines in some of the most awe-inspiring locations on earth.”
The two new Australian Wine Tours are private touring holidays that showcase the wine regions of southern and western Australia, mainly concentrated around the Yarra and Barossa Valleys and Margaret River near to Perth. The tours are highly flexible and can be tailored to suit all tastes and can be taken as standalone itineraries from the UK, combined with other cities and experiences or booked as extension packages to group touring holidays such as the Very Best of Australia and Iconic Australia.
A 12-day private tour to the Barossa Valley & Margaret River in Southern Australia costs from £3,995 per person while a 12-day private tour to the Yarra Valley, Coal River Valley and Bruny Island leads in at £4,345. Alternatively, the wine tours can be added as an extension to any Australia or New Zealand touring holiday from £895.
The company's 'A Taste of Spain’ option offers a one-off experience on one departure date (June 1) and guests travel with a tour manager with additional expert local guide. The tour starts in Barcelona and travels through the countryside in the Rioja region, ending in San Sebastian – known as the foodie capital of Europe.
The ten-day tour takes guests through the Catalan countryside visiting towns, villages, monasteries, wineries and eating places. Each location shows a different perspective on this unique country and the group stays in hand-picked hotels.
