Mountain hikes, fine wine and hearty fare in Georgia

Food and drink are at the centre of your nine-day trip to Georgia, known as the Cradle of Wine for its millennia-long winemaking heritage. You’ll taste the national dish “khachapuri” (a hearty cheese-filled bread), attend a masterclass in traditional Georgian cooking and see how the country’s wine is made in subterranean clay vats. Nature-orientated highlights include hiking through the Lagodekhi National Park and Caucasus Mountains. Finish with a massage and a soak in the sulphur baths of Tbilisi.

Many hot-air balloons over the ancient buildings and hills of Cappadocia

Maze-like markets and ancient history in Turkey

Commence your 12-day Turkish odyssey in Istanbul. Lose yourself in the colourful chaos of the Grand Bazaar – one of the world’s largest markets, with over 4,000 stalls – and explore the 15th-century Topkapi Palace, home to 25 sultans through the years. From there, hit the key sights in the capital of Ankara, before beginning an overland adventure that will see you hot-air-ballooning over the meringue-like rocks of Cappadocia, hiking through the ancient underground city of Kaymakli, and relaxing on Antalya’s pristine beaches.

Island-hopping in the Greek Cyclades

Experience the soul-soothing wonder of Mediterranean life on this eight-day Greek odyssey, which starts with an intro to Athens before island-hopping between some of the archipelago’s most underrated islands. Visit the iconic Acropolis and discover the lesser-known contemporary joys of Athens’ trendiest neighbourhoods, before embarking on boat cruises around the quaint island of Milos, and chilling on the pristine beaches of laid-back Naxos. Finally, we’ll end up on the photogenic island of Santorini, where we’ll gather together for one last dinner as the sun sets over the island’s iconic blue-domed buildings.
