WELCOME TO Romain’s Chef Wine Tour
We can take you on a “Chefs Tour” of the many of the most fantastic gourmet locations throughout Europe. Our tours are designed specifically with the gourmet traveller in mind. Our guests are people who appreciate fine foods and wines as well as having a strong desire to experience local culture and cuisine from around the world. We only conduct boutique tours.
Boutique tours have many advantages for the discerning traveller:
• You are among a small group of like minded guests (max. 8 person on the tour).
• You get a higher degree of personalised service.
• You will virtually never travel in a bus.
• You will go to areas that commercial tours don’t go.
• You experience a greater level of local culture and cuisine.
• You will discover with the chef the best of the best of cuisine!
• You will meet the Michelin Starred chef personally on the dinners.
• You will be travelling with an executive chef!
On all tours you will be accompanied by the chef. This ensures our high culinary standards and winery tours are maintained and give our guests the opportunity to gain a greater appreciation for the cuisine and wine region of the places we visit. This means that we can be sure of the highest standard in culinary excellence as we travel throughout the world.
But “man does not live on bread alone”. While all our tours are for the gourmet traveller we all need time to relax, time to emerge ourselves in the local culture and time to see the sites. The tours we conduct include all these aspects.
Our tours are specifically designed to ensure our guests truly have a holiday. We generally start our day at a very civilised time and have time between experiences to have a quite coffee, do some shopping or just sit down in a comfortable courtyard and rest. There is no point in finishing a holiday of a lifetime only to need a week to recover and rest.
Our guests will experience more of the local culture than on traditional tours. Our local knowledge and the local knowledge of our organisational contacts ensure this. Generally, we do not stay in large hotels in the center of cities. Instead we take our guests out to meet the people and enjoy an experience they can rarely find at home, with the Chaine “des Relais & Chateaux” and exclusive Boutique Hotels.
Of course if you have already seen the more famous sites our extensive local knowledge will allow us to assist you to discover other less well known areas or, of course, we can direct you to the shopping We are a boutique tour operator. We pride ourselves on only one thing – giving the gourmet traveler the best possible experience of local cuisine, stars Michelin restaurants, wineries and culture within a relaxed and friendly atmosphere.
