This is an unforgettable journey through the gorgeous countryside of Scotland and its spectacular collection of castles and mansions set in Edinburgh, Perthshire, Inverness, Fort William and the gorgeous Loch Lomond. You will be granted access to magnificent edifices, which house stories and histories as tremendous as their size! From artwork to painted ceilings, to glens and splendid gardens, these baronial mansions have inspired Queen Victoria, and captured the hearts of those who visit!

Your tour will highlight some of the most popular castles, beginning in Edinburgh, a city whose history is bound up with Edinburgh Castle. This historic fortress dominates the city from its lofty seat atop an extinct volcanic rock. You’ll be nearby with your stay at the Balmoral Hotel, an exclusive retreat in the heart of the city. The 19th-century Ballathie House in Perthshire puts you just steps away from the River Tay, as well as Scone Palace, the crowning-place of the Kings of the Scots, and Glamis Castle, which has royal and literary connections, being the birthplace of Princess Margaret, and the central location of Shakespeare’s play Macbeth!

Next you’ll stay at the handsome Culloden House, an exquisite Georgian mansion that stands on nearly 40 breathtaking acres that have hosted hundreds of years of history, including the 1625 purchase of the Culloden by Duncan Forbes. Built in 1863, Inverlochy Castle is the site of two battles, and it is easy to imagine the clansmen fleeing the scene by sailing away down the river to the Loch. But despite its robust history, Inverlochy Castle is one of the most breathtaking destinations, set uniquely among the glens, lochs and mountains of the West Highlands. In September 1873 during a trip to Balmoral, Queen Victoria spent a week at Inverlochy sketching and painting where she wrote in her diaries, ‘I never saw a lovelier or more romantic spot’.

Your exploration will continue with your stay along the world-renowned bonnie banks of Loch Lomond at Cameron House, which conjures images of a majestic world of heather-dappled glens and roaring open fires.

Explore two of Europe’s most dazzling cities on this exceptional culinary and history tour. From the height of the Eiffel Tower, to the depths of the Colosseum underground, you’ll tour some of the most famous attractions and significant landmarks, bringing the ancient French and Roman cultures into a modern reality. With a professional chef-led culinary experience in both cities, you’ll also get to feast your way through these amazing regions!

The hotel Le Littre will host you in the City of Light, and puts you on the Paris Left Bank, between Saint Germain des Pres and Montparnasse, the new areas for fashion designers and luxury shops. Stroll up and down the famous Champs Elysees and pose in front the Arc de Triomphe, which impressively stands above the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier, solemnly commemorating the dead of the two world wars. See all of Paris from the top of the Eiffel Tower – and skip the line as you make your way to the top!

Bring your appetite to Paris for your French market cooking class, a wonderful four-hour experience that begins with a stroll through the market with your guide and chef, where you’ll learn about the seasonal vegetables, meats, poultry, and cheeses that you’ll be cooking with later. This culinary experience differs from others in that the menu is not established until the small class shops – everyone will decide as a group what to buy and what to cook! And of course the best part of all cooking classes is the privilege of feasting on the fruits of your labor at the end!

After a short flight, make your way to the second half of your trip – the one and only, Eternal City! Discover all the romance and wonders for which Rome is known during your stay at the four-star Fortyseven Hotel, which puts you right in the heart of the city, near the charming, medieval neighborhood of Trastevere, where you can explore the hidden corners of Rome. This hotel also gives you convenient access to some of the most famous Roman landmarks, including the Forum, Piazza Venezia, the Domus Aurea, as well as the seventh-century church of San Giorgio al Velabro, and several archaeological sites such as the Teatro Marcello. But of all Rome’s sites, you won’t want to miss the Colosseum, and your small group tour of ancient Rome includes an underground visit to this famous landmark! The ancient Roman games come to life, and you can almost hear the echoes of ancient Rome cheer as you walk through the same tunnels where lions and tigers once roared from their cages, and where gladiators sharpened their swords.

Chef Andrea Consoli will instruct you step by step through your five-hour Italian cooking class in the quaint neighborhood of Trastevere. Under the chef’s guidance and expertise, you’ll prepare a four-course meal of antipasto, homemade pasta, a succulent second course, all to be completed with a decadent dessert, all with organic ingredients.
