Culinary Tour of Perigord Noir

August 24 - 31, 2019

Reserve your spot today!


Here is an exciting chance to join our Culinary Tour of Perigord Noir, August 24 to 31, 2019. You will see some of France’s amazing Bastide cities, wonderful landscapes, one of the most exciting areas for duck, foie gras, truffles and cave painting from the past. We have led 5 tours in 2017 & 2018 tothis region.    Don't miss out on what will probably be our last Perigord culinary tour.


Here are a few comments from our 2018 participants: 


  • Thank you, Thank you for the wonderful trip to Bordeaux.  You did an incredible job planning and providing us with a wonderful, beautiful experience with elegant accommodations.  I have not yet downloaded my photos, but am looking forward to be able to relive our fabulous gastric and historical journey.  This was one of my favorite travels — incorporating exciting dining and wines in great locations in France.  You created a fabulous trip that opened my world to new and beautifully prepared foods.    Mary


  • It was a complete pleasure to travel and taste Perigord with all of you.  Jane


  • What a great time had by all. Thank you for all your efforts. Sharne and I loved it. We not sure how you two do it. We hold you both in awe. We were absolutely exhausted after one week. Thanks, Ranell


  • Many thanks to you and Donna for all you did to make our stay in the Perigord so memorable. Heidi


  • I am going through Don and Donna (and Perigord, of course) withdrawal!  Thank you both for the trip of a lifetime!  Barbara


  • Thank you both for such a memorable time with you in Perigord Noir. Yes, it was a marathon but as Don says you won’t see everything if the pace was lessened. I agree. The group was delightful and I look forward to seeing some in Tucson. I did learn a lot from mainly watching the cooking crew whip up phenomenal dinners. Donna, you organized everything so well. Merci Beaucoup, Joan
