Get well fed on Ecuadorian delicacies before adventuring from the Andes to the Amazon

Starting a trip off on the right foot means starting with a full stomach, and that’s exactly what you’ll do on this eight-day Ecuador tour. Quito is your first course. You’ll learn how to prepare traditional Ecuadorian dishes in a cooking masterclass, nibble on local chocolate and pack on calories for a journey from the Andes to the Amazon. The trek will take your breath away, but certainly not your appetite. Picnics in Salitre and supper in Papallacta will keep your spirits and satiation high.

Feast and explore the birthplace of wine in rural Georgia

If there’s one country that knows how to wine and dine a visitor, it’s Georgia. The first-known wine was fermented in these parts and you’ll have the opportunity to taste its 8,000-year-old tradition in the Kakheti region. But that’s not the only sampling of yesterday in store on this nine-day tour – ancient bread-making practices are also alive and well. You’ll enjoy a feast of bread and churchkhela with a local family during your travels.
