Food & Wine

Luxury Food & Wine Holidays

Nothing conjures up the essence of a location like its food and drink. Picture yourself biting into a crisp, fragrant samosa in India, slurping spicy green curry in Thailand, or sipping a chilled Sauvignon Blanc in Margaret River, as you watch the sun dip slowly into the Indian Ocean. If you love nothing better than exploring the tastes of a destination, then our gourmet holidays are sure to satisfy your appetite.

We firmly believe food and wine is at the heart and soul of a place, and if you’re anything like us, where to eat and sip is a vitally important part of any holiday planning. Our Travel Designers have loosened their belts in the world’s best gourmet cities to discover the best cooking schools, market tours, master classes and unique neighbourhood food tours.

Of course, eating well doesn’t always mean fine dining. Some of our favourite adventures have been at tiny roadside cafes, food trucks, street stalls, hawker centres or in the private homes or kitchens of local chefs.

So whether you’re craving a wine tasting tour through New Zealand’s world famous Otago or Marlborough regions, an excursion of Beijing’s steamiest dumpling joints, picking fresh daily catch at a Cambodian market, or a sushi-making master class in Tokyo, Lightfoot’s Travel Designers have got suggestions for every appetite.
