Luxury Food and Culture Holidays

To get to know a destination, delve into its culture, sample its cuisine, immerse yourself in its daily life and understand its history. That way you’ll have a sense of place and context for the things you see and experience on your tailor-made trip.

We’ve chosen some of the world’s most impressive cultural sights and foodie destinations, and handpicked a number of less-well known gems that our experts feel should be on your radar too. It could be exploring Inca sites and Machu Picchu in Peru, Maya ruins at Chichen Itza or Maharaja palaces in India. Or maybe you’ve always wanted to see Angkor Wat in Cambodia or India’s Taj Mahal? 

Talk to our experts about their favourite local dishes, and ask them how to explore these impressive icons, and experience these and other cultural treasures, where possible, without the crowds. They can advise on expert guides, and ways to bring destinations and historic sites and archaeological ruins to life - whether that's exploring bustling food markets with a local or going on a private tour of an iconic landmark. 

For more inspiration talk to our team of experts about how to satisfy your foodie and cultural cravings.
