Greetings from Robbi and Jim

A warm welcome to all of the members of our Aroma Tours Newsletter from around the world.

Robbi and I are now in Turkey resting for a short while with our dear friends in Cappadocia before returning to Istanbul for the start of our Turkish Aromatic Odyssey which begins in a couple of days time.

Earlier this month we shared a wonderful time with our guests during our Flavours of Spain and Flavours of Dordogne tours and we look forward to sharing many lovely new photos of these and our other 2013 adventures with you in the coming months.

In the meantime we invite you to visit our Photo Gallery Pages where you can browse through some of the thousands of photos we have taken during our past aromatic adventures.

Our 2014 tour season is now officially open and already we have a very healthy number of guests who have confirmed their places. We are also expecting to hear from others, who over the last year, have told us that they are planning to share an Aroma Tours Adventure with us in 2014.

For the latest details of our tours and retreats, please visit our information request page and if you would like to join us this year for one of our delightful aromatic journeys, please visit our booking request page to reserve your place.

  • Please note: There are still 4 places left for this year's tours.
     ( see current tour status below for details )

Aroma Travellers Our Thanks

Without doubt, the main reason that we continue to grow and flourish, is the on-going support we receive from our past Aroma Travellers.

We are continuing to see an outstanding number of returning Aroma Travellers and new guests who are joining us because of direct referrals - currently over 57% of our guests!

For Robbi and myself, it is such a great delight to be welcoming back so many good friends and to see our Aroma Tours continuing to flourish.

We would also like to give our heart-felt thanks to all of you who continue to support us with your kind words and referrals as you spread news of our tours and retreats amongst your friends.

Robbi and I also greatly appreciate your wonderful words of thanks, it means so much to us to know that we have shared a special time with you during our journey together.

If you have not already done so, please take a peek at our Guest Comments from 2012

Delights of Provence

Robbi and I are excited to announce the addition of a delightful  new tour to our Provence offerings.

So delightful in fact that we have decided to call it Delights of Provence.

We have brought together many of the most requested experiences for first time Provence travellers and added a few of our own favourites, to create a beautiful tour that will no doubt become one of our most popular journeys.

For more details of this "delightful" new tour please visit our information request page

Celebration of Flavour ( repeat )

  • [ Time is short and the internet is slow - so once more unto the table dear friends! ]

In all of our journeys we love to share with our guests the joy of experiencing the cuisine and gastronomic traditions of the regions we visit.

The tastes and aromas of fresh seasonal ingredients prepared with practiced skill, care and pride in preparation, combine in a myriad of ways to bring us moments to savour.

It is a challenge to express the delectable moments we share but hopefully your eyes have enjoyed nibbling along with us.

For those hearty souls wishing to embark on a gastronomic adventure this year there is still one place left for one of our most foodie oriented tours Flavours of Provence
