When dining at the hotel, you may also dine in your room at no additional charge, subject to availability.

On the gourmet tour

We include most of your meals so youll experience the high cuisine our destinations offer but we also provide you the opportunity to try some of your own restaurant choices.  On the few days we dont include lunch or dinner, your escorts are always ready to offer advice about the many wonderful restaurant choices in the area.  You may chose to exercise your independence and dine on your own however you are always welcome to join your escorts. We use the letters "B," "L," and "D" in the itineraries to show which meals are included each day.

See our "Gallery of Restaurants" at the end of each tour itinerary for restaurant pictures.

Light Meal Plan Option

The light meal plan is the same as the full meal plan described above except the light meal plan does not include dinner.   Under the light meal plan, the dinner venue is chosen by and paid for by you.   Of course you are still welcome to join your hosts at dinner if you choose, and if you do, you will receive the same level of service as full meal plan guests.

The light meal plan offers freedom of choice of dining venue.  Formal or casual, grand or petit, you are free to decide on your own restaurant choices, and your hosts can help with a recommendation.  Most European restaurants post their menus outside.  Choosing a restaurant by previewing its menu and sampling its ambiance is an enjoyable evening experience in Europe.
