Culturious Small Group Cultural Immersion
The Contessa welcomes you to her palazzo for a Venetian lunch and sparkling conversation… a sommelier helps you pair wines to the dishes you’ve created with a Provençal chef… cowboys on a working cattle ranch in Wyoming take you out for a horseback ride and share their daily lives... Culturious is all about discovering local culture through authentic learning experiences, exploring off the beaten path, and meeting the locals.
Small Groups… Averaging 20 Guests
This group size means you have more exclusive experiences, do more sightseeing under the typical tourist radar, and enjoy more opportunities to chat with fascinating residents of the places you visit, like a noted wildlife cinematographer in Yellowstone National Park, a hand-blown glass artist on the island of Murano, a concert pianist in Florence, and a van Gogh scholar in St. Rémy-de-Provence.
What better way to learn about a place than by getting involved in daily life? Cook with local chefs, shop in the local markets, taste wines and olive oil with experts at the source, and much more. We call it “sight-doing.”
Walking, bicycling, whitewater rafting, and horseback riding are some of the best ways to get to know a new place and have fun at the same time. Culturious journeys energize body, mind and spirit!
Culturious trips are designed with more personal freedom built in. We haven’t scheduled your every minute, so you’ll have time to linger in places that capture your imagination and to pursue your own interests. If you’d like to make your journey more physically active, that’s easy. We can help. And because you’re traveling with a smaller group, everyone can be more flexible and open to spontaneous opportunities for delight.
A Smaller Travel Footprint
With your small group, you’ll keep a lower profile in every way, including traveling in smaller-passenger vehicles and mini-coaches.
