"Who wouldn't get excited by the idea of a 'foodcation'?"

"Through Sicily's amazing food, Lisa gave me a far better understanding of the region and its complicated history than I might have gained if I'd gone alone with a guide book or toured with a historian." Lee Tulloch, Luxe Nomad

QANTAS TRAVEL INSIDER:

"Who wouldn't get excited by the idea of a 'foodcation'?"

"I've just returned from an outstanding food tour of Sicily. I want to give Savour Sicily Culinary Tours a shout out, not only because we had a rollicking good time, but because, through Sicily's amazing food, Lisa gave me a far better understanding of the region and its complicated history than I might have gained if I'd gone alone with a guide book or toured with a historian."

BEST GUIDED TOUR 2014: SAVOUR SICILY

"We spent ten heavenly days in Sicily with the gorgeous Lisa of Savour Sicily Culinary Tours. Lisa takes small group, food-focussed tours to Sicily twice a year, introducing guests to her favourite restaurants, markets, wineries and delis. Guests can participate in cooking classes with local chefs, or simply indulge in some fabulous food and wine while learning more about this intriguing Mediterranean island."

 

“The briefing whetted our appetite, the itinerary was clearly explained in an attractive, unique and personal way, your own enthusiasm came through and was contagious. We experienced a most comprehensive and exciting introduction to Sicily- its culture, people, heritage and cuisine. It was an unforgettable time of great fun, unique experiences, knowledge acquisition and of living and learning together through being introduced to people of a very warm, very generous, and very welcoming spirit. It is an experience we would recommend to others with an interest in food, culture and history. Thank you very much.”

Geoff and Marjorie, Melbourne, Australia

 

“I am so impressed by how passionate you are about Sicily and its food and culture, and your desire to continue to discover and learn, and how excited you are to show us the Sicily that you know. I doubt the conventional tours will provide any of the above, and I think the experience of a more personal tour is well worth it!!! Every experience is unique and all of them make this trip complete".

Stella, San Francisco, USA

 

“As far as we are concerned you nailed it. We could not have had a warmer, friendlier more fun and lovely introduction to Sicily. There is more love of people and food in your veins than there is blood.”

Janice and Richard, Melbourne, Australia

“Winding our way home from dinner, the crescent moon is yellow and reflects a full spotlight beneath. Showtime! The image peels off out into the inky water. Every sense has been sated including those of our bellies. Involtini! Stuffed! As a metaphor, this sums up our trip so far. Tonight an antipasto of zucchini fritters, octopus in fresh caper berries which grow prolifically around the island, a Caponata of fused tastes but with each vegetable clearly separate and a dessert of pistachio crème. Bellissimo!”

Suzy on the Aeolian Island of Salina, Melbourne, Australia

“I had the most wonderful time, I enjoyed everything and felt very relaxed at the end of the trip, wonderful people on tour, excellent guiding, very enriching! I felt in very good hands throughout the trip, your general knowledge is excellent. I would recommend the tour to anyone and everyone!”

Gillian, Myrtleford, Australia

“Thank you so much for the wonderful Sicilian experience including the delicious food. We miss you heaps!"

Helen and Graeme, Thornton, Australia

“Swimming off the fishing boat out of Cefalu and lunching on the boat afterwards- has to rate as one my best days ever. So simple yet so splendid, life doesn't get much better than that. I think you put together a brilliant itinerary. Your energy and enthusiasm was infectious. You did your best to accommodate everyone's needs in quite a diverse group.  By the end I felt I had experienced a taste of the real Sicily and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I will certainly return.”

Lorraine, Canberra, Australia

"Fabulous, I have been singing your praises ever since I returned!”

Fran, Melbourne, Australia

"I loved how you were part of the group rather than just a 'leader'. Your enthusiasm throughout the tour was amazing, and your passion for Sicily was infectious."

Kathy, Melbourne, Australia

"We enjoyed the whole tour immensely, and your friendliness, knowledge and enthusiasm was exceptional. We had such fabulous food! Classes were great. The folder with the itinerary, helpful hints, and the leaflets of each of the places we went to, talking about were to eat, drink, shop, and some history were excellent. Thanks for a great trip"

Joy and Ian, Geelong, Australia

"It was an excellent, well thought out itinerary covering many aspects of Sicilian culture. Lisa's in-depth knowledge of and real enthusiasm for Sicily was fantasic- we couldn't have had a better guide to introduce us to this amazing island. Overall the trip was terrific, very educational and stimulating. Many good memories- not least of all food. I look forward to returning someday to somewhere I feel I got to know"

Vicky, Melbourne, Australia

"Couldn't have been better; lively, fun, well organised, professional, made everyone feel welcome. Thank you Lisa. We had a sensational time and loved everything so much. We really appreciate the great work you did putting it all together."

Mary and Steve, Melbourne, Australia
