World-class food and wonderful tours in exotic destinations around the world.
Collette, a global tour operator, has announced a delicious offering of tours featuring classic culinary experiences.
"Guests will embark on new adventures all over the world by sampling authentic regional cuisine and connecting with individuals who keep local traditions alive while creating new ones for the next generation," company officials said.
Collette, a family-owned company for the past 100 years, has a passion for travel and takes guests to all seven continents on more than 160 tours.
From the vineyards of Provence to the ancient teahouses of Beijing to the spice markets of Marrakesh, a tour of global flavours await. Guests of Collette's tour to Portugal and its islands will delight in the signature dish of the Azores, cozido das furnas, cooked in a hot spring heated by volcanic steam.
The Azores are a truly magical destination, with fantastic seafood and some of the tastiest steak on the planet, thanks to cows who graze on deep green grass in mid-Atlantic islands with virtually no pollution. There's also tremendous hiking along rugged mountain ridges and past magnificent beaches and endless stretches of deserted coastline.
Travellers on Collette's tour to Switzerland will walk picturesque vineyards that are a UNESCO World Heritage site, and stop and sip the delicious Swiss wine.
"There are endless reasons why we travel, but the thrill of experiencing a new culture is one many of us share," said Jaclyn Leibl-Cote, Executive Vice President of Product and Tour Management for Collette. "While landmarks and historic sites offer a glimpse into a destination, food is the universal language that unites us all and we want you to be our guest in this food adventure."
Culinary experiences with Collette include sipping Cabernet Sauvignon in the beautiful Napa Valley of California, hunting for earthy truffles in France and cracking fresh lobster in the Canadian maritimes.
Collette is the longest-running tour operator in North America.
