Let us know what you’d like to learn, and we’ll organize your private touring around lessons that last from as short as an hour to as long as a week or more.

You all did an absolutely superb job with our Japan trip…we liked best the sumo tournament…and geisha dinner, a not to be missed experience! The ikebana class was lots of fun and very educational.

We had a lovely Morocco trip. The cooking class was a highlight for us – we loved having our own private class.
~ K.C., Johns Island, SC

We had a wonderful time in Asia!!! Highlights in Indonesia were seeing village life and culture in Bali, including a village tour of tofu-making and pottery making.
