A very warm welcome to all of the members of our Aroma Tours Newsletter in over 30 countries around the world.
Robbi and I are greatly enjoying some well deserved quiet time at home, and we feel truly blessed to once again be able to share our passion for the fabulous places and experiences that we love, with delightful people from around the world.
Our cottage garden is a riot of colour and we are surrounded by flocks of parrots and other birds busily feeding and nesting, as well as regular visits from our local kangaroo mob - which with the new generation of joeys has grown to more than twenty.
As we move into summer and those of you in north hunker down for winter, we all begin to look forward to the festive season and catching up with family and friends.
Robbi and I are already looking forward to next year's Aroma Tours and we are thrilled to see that demand for our 2023 season is the strongest we have ever seen!
As always, it is our returning guests and their friends who are leading this fabulous response.
One of the great pleasures for Robbi and I after each tour season is receiving messages of thanks from our Aroma Travellers. We have compiled a few below from our past adventures and hope that you enjoy reading about their experiences with us.

Robbi and I are very excited to be offering a fabulous new gourmet tour, exploring the beauty, culture and rich gastronomic traditions of eastern France.
Experience the fascinating heart of Lyon, the gastronomic capital of France and enjoy journeying through the beautiful vine clad countryside of Burgundy and Alsace with their enchanting hilltop villages, medieval towns, lush vineyards, spectacular chateau and gardens.
Elegant 4 and 5 star small luxury hotels and spectacular gourmet cuisine and wines are a feature of this tour and your taste buds will be tantalized in some of France's finest restaurants, from hidden gastronomic treasures, to spectacular 3 Michelin star fine dining; with a total of 7 Michelin stars during our week together.
One of the best ways to enjoy the spirit of our Aroma Tours adventures is by taking a peek at a few of the 10's of 1000's of photos we have taken during our Aroma Tours adventures.
We have compiled a small selection for you to enjoy and to give you a feel for the experiences that we share with our guests on tour.
We also invite you to enjoy some of our other lovely photos via our Photo Gallery Page
As well as couples and friends travelling together, we are regularly joined by solo travellers - mostly women, who appreciate being able to journey with liked minded people from around the world, without the need to do all the planning and take on the daunting task of touring by themselves.
Joining one of our small group tours is easy and we have already made all of the arrangements on your behalf to ensure that you have a delightful, stress-free holiday with the focus on having fun.
Having a ready-made group of friends to travel with, and us to take wonderful care of you is the way to go!
We have carefully crafted off-the-beaten-path itineraries that are the perfect balance of structure, experiences, details and free time to enjoy in your own way.
Without doubt, the main reason that we have grown and flourished over the years and weathered the recent travel restrictions, is the on-going support that we have received from our past Aroma Travellers.
As we move beyond the difficulties of the last couple of years we are thrilled to see that they continue to make up more than 65% of our guests!
We would also like to give our heart-felt thanks to all of you who have continued to support us with your kind words and referrals over the years.
Robbi and I also greatly appreciate the wonderful words of thanks we have received from our guests - Guest Comments.
Robbi and I look forward to welcoming you to one of our delightful Aroma Tours in 2023.
Jim and Robbi
