We will travel both on and off the beaten path to discover the unique flavor of each location. Our tours include a bit of culture, a bit of adventure and a whole lot of good food and drink. Add a few 5-star touches & voila! It’s an experience of a lifetime.


History vs. Mystery


Live a moment in history. Journey back in time as we explore the legends and lore of historical people and places, bringing to life the Roman & Renaissance world.


Art. Architecture. Music.


Indulge your passion for culture with a dose of art, architecture, and music. Visit castles, cathedrals, villages, and heritage sites off the beaten track.


Eat. Drink. Learn.


Experience the best of the culinary and wine world with us: from French pastries, Italian vineyards, and Scottish whisky to cooking classes and field-to-fork dining.


Play Hard, Eat Well.


Cycle, paddle, trek, or sail by day. Fortify with fine local food, wine, shopping and entertainment by night. Guided activities and real food make the perfect pairing.

Planned Tours

Each year, we design a handful of signature trips to timeless destinations. Our intimate boutique tours - capped at 10 guests - allow you to become a traveler, and not just a tourist. The small size lets us venture behind-the-scenes and off-the-beaten-path. Our tours are experiential, in-depth, and conversational. Just sit back and enjoy the camaraderie of friends while being weaved into a rich tapestry of local history, cuisine, and cultural treasures.

Town & Country Tours

Rally your girlfriends, sisters, or book club for our exciting femme-focused Town and Country tours. Each trip combines off-beat activities and travel experiences with a special allure for the ladies. These week long girly-getaways are a perfect blend of city-chic and countryside retreat. Spend a few days in the heart of a sophisticated city then slow down for a few days in a villa or country house with cooking classes, winery tours, scenic yoga.

Private Tours

Pick your tour. Pick your dates. Bring your friends. We have done the legwork of crafting specialized itineraries with hotels, attractions, and restaurants you can trust. We’ve eaten there. We’ve slept there. We’ve walked the narrow, winding streets and taken the trains. These tours help to immerse guests in the less touristy side of a destination, from its culture to its cuisine. An unforgettable, one-of-a-kind experience is ready to book and go!

Custom Tours

For ultimate personalization, Wanderlust Tours provides comprehensive travel consulting services, ranging from hotel bookings to full itinerary development. Allow us to escort your small group on a customized, private tour or help design a self-guided itinerary based on your interests. Whether its a book club, church group, work incentive or family trip, we can create your trip of a lifetime
