Famed cooking schools, celebrated wineries, and epicurean expeditions — Tauck has something for every appetite.

Spain + Portugal

The Iberian Peninsula is renowned for soccer legends, architectural marvels, exotic beaches, and above all, its food. From tapas and authentic seafood paella to pastel de nata, Spain and Portugal offer a veritable cornucopia of culinary traditions that have influenced cuisine the world over.

Savor it all during a this guided tour from Porto to Madrid with Tauck. UNESCO World Heritage Sites, beguiling architecture, winding alleyways, opulent churches, famous museums, and dining options you’ll talk about for years are all on the menu.

In Porto, cruise along the Douro River aboard a traditional, flat-bottomed rabelo (just like those used to transport wine from vineyards centuries ago) that delivers you to a port wine cellar for a tasting and lunch. A day in Marbella is certain to please the palate. No matter where you dine, be sure to order the Costa del Sol specialty: Fritura Malagueña. This platter of mixed seafood is designed to be shared with someone special as you gaze across the Strait of Gibraltar at Northern Africa. The journey ends in Madrid, where tapas bars are never more than a few steps away.

France: Paris + Lyon + Provence

French cuisine has long been considered equal parts prestigious and magnifique. The French are known for approaching food with respect, appreciation, and adoration, then presenting it with such a flourish, diners claim c’est délicieux even before the first bite.

Perhaps it’s no surprise then that a culinary tour of France is among the most popular itineraries offered by Tauck.

Travelers can partake in a pastry class at the renowned Le Cordon Bleu Paris where they’ll learn firsthand the tips of the patisserie trade and experiment with making elaborate confections. Or nibble on some of the country’s most beloved specialties as you taste your way through a local neighborhood on a food walking tour. A visit to a French family vineyard for the perfect pairing or a “never to be forgotten’” gourmet meal in a château are also on the table.
