" Linda is a flexible, fun, bundle of joy and energy. Any time spent with her at the helm as your tour director is going to keep a smile on your face. She does her research and hires the best local talents and keeps the costs as low as possible without sacrificing quality. If you're considering a tour with her, put on your Nike hat and JUST DO IT! "

" Wow! The Puglia trip planned by Linda Bell was fabulous! The venues, sightseeing excursions, and shopping superseded our expectations! The cooking class and local entertainment were top notch. The Italian winemaking tour with homemade ricotta and local delicacies was one of my favorites. This was by far the best trip we have experienced in our lifetime! Thank you, Linda and Mike, for being outstanding hosts!"

" Puglia is a hidden treasure! Linda put together a fun, well organized culinary adventure into this relatively unknown part of Italy. Every day was filled with beauty and adventure. It is well worth one’s time to visit! "

— Mary P.

" We joined Linda and Mike Bell for a true one-of-a-kind journey to taste and cook in the heel of Italy as well as Tuscany. While exploring the Baroque architecture of its cities and legacies of its provinces, we stayed at four-star accommodations and had an expert tour guide to accompany us. 


Not only did we get to taste a variety of the Puglian and Tuscan cuisines, we enjoyed privileged access to local farms, family-run vineyards and hands-on cooking lessons with local chefs and purveyors. Our taste buds were awakened and our minds stimulated as we learned about regional cheeses, wine, and olive oil production during field trips to local farms. We can't say enough about the trips!  Mike and Linda are ideal hosts providing attention to detail."
