Greetings from Robbi and Jim

A warm welcome to all of the members of our Aroma Tours Newsletter in over 30 countries around the world.

Kind thanks to Tim Cohen ( Heart of Provence Tour 2015 ) for this photo of Robbi and I

Our Aroma Tours adventures are now complete for 2015 and Robbi and I are very grateful to have shared so many wonderful moments in the company of delightful people from around the world, with new friendships made and old ones rekindled.

We are enjoying our home time and catching up with friends but already our thoughts are turning to the upcoming tour season in 2016 which is continuing to astound and delight us with almost all of  our tours either fully booked or down to the last few places!

As always it is our returning guests and their friends who are leading this fabulous response. We feel truly blessed to be able to share our passion for the places and experiences that we love with wonderful people from around the world. As we start to throttle back on the number of tours we are offering it becomes even more poignant for us.

As the saying goes "Carpe Diem" and if you would like to seize the day and join our Aroma Travellers next year, we invite you to visit our information request page for more information or our booking request page to reserve your place.

  • Kind thanks to Tim Cohen ( Heart of Provence 2015 ) for this photo of Robbi and I.

Aroma Travellers Our Thanks

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

This year we enjoyed an outstanding number of returning Aroma Travellers and new guests who joined us because of direct referrals - over 66% of our guests! A similar result is occurring for next year as well.

For Robbi and myself, it is such a great delight to welcome 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 2015 ( more will be added shortly ).

Memorable Photos from 2015

Three Lands of Italy - Our wonderful new tour

Italy is a place of contrasts, contradictions and delights, blessed with rich cultural and gastronomic treasures and the indomitable character and friendliness of the Italian people.

To celebrate the wonderful diversity of northern Italy we have created a delightful exploration of three very different regions renowned for their beauty, culture and fabulous food and wines; hence the name Three Lands of Italy Tour.

Details of this fabulous new tour will be available in the next week or so.

  • Please send us an email request at if you would like to be amongst the first to be sent this information. We already have several guests pre-registered as a result of referrals from our VIP guests ( those who have been on 2 or more tours with us ) who greatly enjoyed this tour as our special invitees this September past.

Photos of Food Glorious Food

Delicious food and wines are an integral part of each Aroma Tour. From finest gourmet cuisine to delicious home-cooked fare, our meals are always colourful, authentic and flavoursome and are enjoyed in a leisurely fashion.

We love to create menus that tantalize the taste buds of our guests on tour and share 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.

For your enjoyment here are a few more images of the lovely gastronomic moments we shared ( lots more to come ).

We hope that you enjoyed this visual feast and we will share more yummy images with you in our next newsletter.

Provence Aromatherapy Retreat

As well as our lovely food, wine and culture based tours, educational retreats have been a long standing part of our Aroma Tours journey.

After a three year pause, we are pleased to announce that in 2016 we will once again be offering our Provence Aromatherapy Retreat focused on the use of essential oils and associated natural products for skin care, women's health and wellbeing maintenance.

In addition to Robbi Zeck ND ( our Robbi ) and her wonderful work on the emotional and wholistic aspects of aromatherapy, we are excited and delighted to welcome world renowned experts, Dr Bo Hengden of Absolute Essential ( New Zealand ) and Megan Larsen of Sodashi Skin Care ( Australia ) who will share their extensive knowledge and expertise in the development and application of natural, organic and effective products for both therapeutic and cosmetic use.

Attendees will gain a great deal of knowledge from our wonderful trainers and local experts and will be empowered to make their own natural skin care and well being products for personal or professional use. We will also enjoy the beauty and culture of Provence, amongst the blooming lavender fields and experience essential oil production from field to bottle, as well as sharing with other aromatherapists from around the world.
