Join Susan and Richard with their small group for a magical, leisurely-paced tour to magnificent destinations. This is a tour with a difference. Specializing in unique tours, Susan and Richard have personally created an itinerary offering a trip of a life-time. Focussed on sight-seeing, there are also many opportunities if you have always wanted to try your hand at painting. Imagine sitting painting in an ancient European village cobbled street, or amongst the wild-flowers and summer grasses in a meadow below the Swiss Alps - cows with bells and snow capped mountains and chalets hugging the hillside. With waterfalls and the aroma of summer/autumn captured in every stroke - this is a tour that will take your breath away with the spectacular experiences we have in store for you. You may be an experienced artist - Susan will be there for you all - guiding you every step of the way.
Your passion may be photography. Where better than on a unique European tour to learn how to get the most out of your digital camera! Richard will be there to offer you his expertise as well as two workshops on how to take magnificent shots of the stunning scenery, markets, people, birds and all nature has to offer.
Richard will also conduct two wine appreciation evenings where he will share his vast knowledge and many magnificent European wines for you to explore.
While in Bellagio, Lake Como we will visit star chef Luigi Gandola's famous restaurant. We have a cook school booked for you which begins with a visit to Luigi's Mamma's vegetable and herb garden. Then it is back to the restaurant to try our hand at Italian cooking with Luigi's expert guidance. How idyllic! The icing on the cake of course is that evening we get to eat the foods in a banquet of fine food and wine! This evening will be the second of Richard's wine appreciation evenings.
Have you longed to cruise in a five star cruise liner along the French and Italian Rivieras? The quality of the cruise we have chosen and the fantastic destinations are outstanding and allow us to visit numerous places including Portofino, Cinque Terre, Florence, Amalfi, Sorrento, Capri, Taormina, Rome - amongst others in a leisurely cruise where there is time to soak up the flavour of each destination.
This is only a very small sample of the long list of magical destinations and excursions we have planned for this unique land and cruise tour - our 2012 "Portrait of Europe Tour'
