Imbibing local food and drink is integral to every small group experience. In Japan, guests partake in a formal Ryokan feast, in Portugal, it’s a port tasting, and in New Zealand, a Maori Hangi dinner. Going to a local market to source ingredients and then participate in a hands-on cooking class is another way guests are rewarded with great local food, and on many tours, guests dine with locals in their own homes.
Every Odysseys Unlimited small group tour weaves together such small group gems such as traveling to lesser-known places, staying in distinctive lodgings, enjoying local musical and cultural events and seizing unscripted, memory-making opportunities.
Odysseys Unlimited, the leader in high quality, affordable small group travel, offers fully refundable deposits up to 95 or 155 day before departure (depending on the tour), and savings of $100 to $300 per trip for repeat guests. Every tour is limited to 12 to 24 guests, guaranteed, and is led by a top-rated Odysseys Unlimited tour director.
