Our new land excursions travel to private homes, farms, villas and more to experience authentic culture as it unfolds. Small groups mix and mingle with welcoming locals for a deeper understanding and appreciation of the destinations we visit.
Discover the authentic country life of Turkey’s Aegean coast. Travel through the verdant countryside surrounding Kusadasi to the home and culinary workshop of a local family. Upon arrival, meet the hosts and share fresh lemonade with them during a conversation about the locality’s history and traditions. Relax on an open-air terrace set against mountains next to the family’s bountiful garden before joining the family in the preparation of Turkish cuisine. Using the freshest produce, some of which comes from the nearby garden, create local delicacies and enjoy them with the family.
Create pottery alongside a master of Rhodian ceramics. Start your day with a beautiful drive through the countryside, soaking in panoramas of villages, citrus groves, vineyards and olive trees. Upon arrival at the ceramics workshop, Savvas, meet the grandson of the original potter, who was considered a pioneer of modern Greek ceramics. Learn the techniques and materials used in this delightful craft. After a demonstration of how ceramics are made, select a plate or vase from the workshop and paint it while enjoying Greek mezes—small, savory plates—with local wine.
