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 very grateful and excited to be witnessing the renaissance of our Aroma Tours adventures in 2022 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.
After 2 years of waiting patiently it will be very poignant for all of us be able to travel forth once again.
Robbi and I would love to share a wonderful journey with you on one of our delightful small group tours next year, however, with the fabulous support we have received from our past aroma Travellers and those planning ahead, there are now only a dozen places remaining for 2022 and we encourage you to "Seize the Day" in order to be sure of securing your place(s).
Without doubt, the main reason that we have grown and flourished over the years, is the on-going support we have received from our past Aroma Travellers and 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.
Join us for a wonderful gastronomic pilgrimage along the route of the famous Camino de Santiago in northern Spain, beginning with the foodie heaven of the Basque country which has one of the highest concentrations of Michelin starred restaurants in the world.
We then weave our way west through a succession of glorious vistas and cuisines until we reach the magnificent world heritage city of Santiago de Compostella in the seafood paradise of Galicia.
We will journey through spectacular countryside, staying in magnificent 5 star hotels, visit Templar castles, stunning cathedrals and venerable wine estates, enjoy guided walks through fascinating old quarters and picturesque seaside villages and experience a little walking on the pilgrims way of the Camino de Santiago de Compostela.

Of all the regions that we have visited over the last 27 years, Provence has a special place in our hearts. It is where our Aroma Tours began almost three decades ago and where we first fell in love with another land.
Returning to our second home in Provence is always a delight for Robbi and I and it will be especially poingiant next year as we re-connect with our dear friends and are once again able to share our passion for the many wonders and hidden gems of this beautiful region during our Essential Provence Tour.
"To be in Provence is to be in a joyful dream full of beauty and delight." ~ Jean Moreau
Please join us in this beautiful land and it will be our great pleasure to share the wonderful places, people and experiences that we love with you.
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.
There have been a significant number of guests over the years who and have joined us multiple times, some of whom have become dear friends.
Robbi and I look forward to welcoming you to one of our delightful tours or retreats as we recommence our Aroma Tours in the summer of 2022.
Jim and Robbi
