There is no better accompaniment to a sensational holiday than exquisite food. The food you enjoy whilst away can truly make or break your experience, but when it comes to the options available to you on a luxury holiday, we're certain you're not going to be left disappointed.

Indulge in A Tailor-Made Foodie Tour

If you're looking for a luxury foodie experience that is completely tailor-made to suit your requests, then you're in luck. Travel to world-renowned vineyards, get a taste of traditional food in some of the world's most popular foodie destinations or catch your own food and enjoy it as you bob on crystal-clear waters.

Being the main character means you don't have to plan any of this on your own. Once you have chosen your holiday destination and picked the hotel and resort you would like to stay at, one of our luxury travel specialists will happily advise and recommend excursions to suit your unique tastes and interests, so you can focus on enjoying your upcoming adventures.

Hire Your Own Private Chef

Many of our holiday packages come complete with your very own chef who will prepare all the meals you could wish for whilst you're away. Many of these talented chefs come with Michelin star ratings so you know that five-star accommodation will be accompanied by five-star food.

Experiences Only A Few Get to Enjoy

Although some people love to sit back and relax on the beach reading a book and soaking up the sun, that isn't the case for everyone. For some, holidays are all about making memories, enjoying new experiences, and going on once-in-a-lifetime adventures.

Our bespoke collection of adventures and activities are unlike any other, with some of them being truly unique and bespoke, making you one of very few to enjoy them.

Trek Through the Amazon Jungle

Is there really an experience more exhilarating and fulfilling than trekking through the Amazon Jungle? A location only very few get to experience in their life, you're really going to feel like the main character. Explore this enchanting expanse of land with your very own guide and learn everything you need to know about the jungle. Not only that, but you will also actually be staying in the forest, learning what it takes to survive in locations like these. Explore the natural habitat, roam amongst indigenous animals, and live like a true local.

Go Whale Watching in the Arctic Ocean

There are very few animals more majestic than whales. Whales can be seen in a plethora of locations across the globe, but to actually catch a glimpse of these magnificent beasts is an experience very few will get to say they have actually witnessed.

Canada is one of the best locations to catch a glimpse of whales and many of our wildlife encounters holidays have whale-watching excursions included. Alternatively, why not hire your very own boat and tour guide and head out to the seas yourself.

See the Glow Of The Sea Of Stars In The Maldives

The Maldives is a location that needs no introduction and can offer so many outstanding spectacles. One of these amazing spectacles is the sea of stars on the beaches in the Maldives. Occurring during later summer, this phenomenon is jaw-dropping. The water on the beaches in the Maldives is filled with plankton, and the movement of the sea causes it to glow, creating an incredible star-like effect that looks like the sea is full of shimmering stars.
