The Larapinta tour by Epicurious travel was exceptional value for money. The country is stunningly beautiful and the walks well organised and manageable (I am 70!). The young tour guides were very knowledgeable about the geology, history, Aboriginal stories and beliefs, the flora and fauna and bird life. I loved the campsite and having delicious meals around the fire at night before heading off to a comfy bed in my tent. The three guides were one of the highlights of our tour.

The tour was so well researched by Jennifer that it flowed seamlessly from one fabulous artisan or group of artisans to another. It was enormously stimulating and remarkably varied. The local guides, particularly, Gotham in Gujarat, were very knowledgeable and always helpful. The choice of hotels was excellent as was the appreciation of local cuisine from the simple but tasty offerings in the villages and the street food to the interesting restaurants.

From the people, culture, food, wonderful history and architecture of Andalucia’s Moorish past to the natural beauty of its walks in smaller villages and sierras this is a stunning trip. Having travelled with a Epicurious before, we had high expectations, but these were exceeded. Quite simply a must do trip if you enjoy fine food, great accomodation and walking in areas without tour buses and crowds.
Robert Gillam – Colours of Andalucia October 2016
This tour was exceptional in all ways. Graphic, intensely colourful, deeply moving, and full of wonder. Jennifer’s powerful research base and palpable love of the textiles of India was matched by her choice of guides (particularly Gotham in Gujarat, our Ganesha), the valuing of the ‘symbolic capital’ of the artefacts produced in all their diversity and locations, along with the valuing of the contribution of communities and ‘leaders’ in the remaking of and extending ancient textile traditions. As well as this, the attention given to our accommodation, the choice of drivers and helpers for our journeys, the opportunities provided to share local foods with those individuals and communities with whom we spent time along with many engaging conversations and all sorts of other recommendations. Nothing seemed too much trouble and each aspect would be difficult to match.
Kerry Thomas – Textiles and Traditions in India November 2016
We thought it was fantastically well organised, the hotels were almost uniformly well chosen and good, the guides excellent and our driver wonderful. Would definitely use Epicurious for our next trip.

A signature of journeys with Epicurious Travel is that expectations are always exceeded. The Tassie tour started with MONA and continued to provide highlight after highlight. Christine introduced us to a passionate community of food producers, chefs and winemakers – the future for Tasmanian culinary enterprise is truly exciting. I can’t thank you enough for an eye opening discovery of hidden Tasmania!
Janet Ruby – Tasting Tassie with Christine Manfield
It has been the most amazing 18 days and although we were travelling in luxury and didn’t have to worry about any little details, we both feel as though we were totally immersed in India – not an experience we will forget for a very long while.
We’ve just been sitting here going through the photos – some amazing memories of places and people.
Jenny and Mark McInerney – India’s Seductive South
Thank you Epicurious! We loved our Larapinta adventure – one of our best holidays ever. The landscapes, the walks and the food and wine were all awesome. Our three guides were also informative, excellent cooks and great fun.
