Travel beyond the unexpected, with Trafalgar’s Be My Guest experiences
As countries of vast contrast, incredible vistas, fine cuisine and ancient cultures, Peru and Ecuador continue their rise as the top destinations in South America.
When you take a guided vacation with Trafalgar, it’s not just about seeing iconic places and famous destinations. It’s about experiencing the local people, stories and traditions that make them what they are, with a range of exclusive Insider Experiences.
Welcoming you inside traditional vineyards, olive groves, homes and businesses, Trafalgar’s Be My Guest experiences introduce you to the families that own them. People like the Telli family, who invite you to an exclusive dinner of local specialties at ‘La Piratera’, their restaurant on the little island of Isola Madre in Italy. Welcoming you to the island, Signor Telli introduces you to the family over creamy risotto, delicious roasted meats and crisp chill Gavi wine, and explains how the childhood fantasies of a prince inspired their restaurant, the setting of your truly Italian meal.
In Wales, Mark and Victoria Andrews show you around their farm in the pretty countryside of Barry. Getting to know the family and the animals, you hear local tales and anecdotes, shared with you over traditional dishes, with vegetables straight from the garden, and organic Caerphilly cheese, a local delicacy.
Then there’s Konrad Schieszl and his family in Hungary, who explain the traditions and techniques behind their award-winning wines during a private tasting in the cellars of their winery. Listening to their family history, the warmth of the wine gives way to goosebumps, as they describe how one of their wine barrels helped save the life of a family friend during the holocaust.
But Trafalgar’s Be My Guest experiences don’t just focus on Europe. They take you deeper inside the culture and traditions of other global destinations too. Like savoring home-cooked Peruvian dishes and exploring the 18th century mansion of Dr Diez Canseco in Peru, as he explains the history of his illustrious family and their political connections, including JFK.
Unique and exclusive, Trafalgar’s experiences don’t just show you the destinations. They help you understand them through locals’ eyes – and help you travel beyond the expected. Find these and other experiences on Trafalgar’s worldwide vacations.
