Gourmet California

Visit some of the Golden State’s most inspiring culinary destinations on this Gourmet California adventure. Take a VIP tour of San Francisco’s thriving food scene and meet some of the hottest chefs in the city. You’ll also explore the hippest San Fran neighbourhoods on a bespoke guided tour. The Sonoma and Napa valleys are dotted with world-renowned wineries. Taste the best vintages on exclusive visits, and explore the surroundings on a guided bike tour. Top things off with a sunrise hot air balloon trip over the Napa Valley.

UK - San Francisco

Welcome to sublime San Francisco, one of the world’s most striking cities, and one of its most delicious – there’s a well-established, thriving and diverse foodie scene here. From the luxurious Cavallo Point Lodge, you’re perfectly placed to taste it.

San Francisco

Delve straight in with an edible excursion along the Mission’s Valencia corridor, a rapidly changing food landscape that’s home to some of the trendiest new ventures. There’ll be no queues, of course, and you’ll meet the chefs and storeowners to gain the ultimate insider access. Take a tour of the city’s many neighbourhoods too, from Lombard Street to Lincoln Park, Ocean Beach to Golden Gate Park, China Town to Fisherman’s Wharf – it can be customised to suit your preferences and your palate.


Historic Sonoma, centered around a plaza built when this area was still part of Mexico, is at the heart of wine country. Head off from San Francisco – stopping for lunch at a lovely bistro en route – for a two-night stay at Farmhouse Inn, nestled amid the vines and vintners. Enjoy a private wine tour, visiting the vineyards of Repris and Kamen and the Donum Estate for exclusive tours and tastings. Then explore the leafy surrounds on a guided bike trip, learning some of Sonoma’s history – and perhaps sampling more wines along the way.

Napa Valley, Yountville

Squeeze in private tours and tastings at two of the areas renowned estates, McKenzie Mueller Winery and Caldwell Vineyards, before continuing on to the foodie hub of Yountville. Your home here is the Calistoga Ranch, one of the greenest luxury hotels in America, with an incredible connection to nature. Close by you will find the perfect launchpad for a truly once-in-a-lifetime hot-air balloon flight – lift off at dawn to drift peacefully over the Napa Valley as the rising sun hits the vines below. After a revitalising brunch, explore Yountville on two wheels, cycling between the small inns and out into the fertile countryside beyond.

San Francisco

Head back to San Francisco for your flight home – or extend your stay in the city.
