Customized Trips

Perhaps you and your group of closest friends have been wanting to do a trip together. You all love traveling and getting to know a different culture, but having to organize activities, book hotels, and research where to go and how to move around seems a bit daunting. Or, maybe, your best friend is getting married, you’re celebrating an anniversary, or your spouse is turning 50, and you want to do something memorable for such a special occasion. Well, that’s where we—and our Customized Trips—come in.

ISABEL TORREALBA & CHEF ILIANA DE LA VEGA

 
"Traveling Oaxaca with Iliana is not just another tour, it's a culinary tour de force – an edible expedition into the extraordinary culture(s) and history of this unique, original place of Mexican civilization. Generally, I'm not inclined to take guided tours, much less to tout one, but this small-group journey with de la Vega (who is Oaxacan, and a fabulous chef to boot) provides a perfect mix of indigenous and modern Oaxaca. Plus, you get to eat the whole thing! –"
