I had the most incredible time on our motorbiking trip in Spiti during the summer of 2017 with Travel Scents! The scenery is literally the most beautiful on earth. Every turn is more breathtaking than the last. Our trip was adventurous and peaceful, all at the same time. We had a fantastic host/tour guide - he is what truly made the trip like no other. He knows all the areas from many years of exploring and is connected to all the local people. If you want to explore the mountains of North India, you owe it to yourself to go with Travel Scents!

I highly enjoyed this tour. The locations ranged from coastal to hilltop tea plantations to jungle! Wherever we travelled the food was excellent, whether in the carefully chosen hotels or the roadside restaurants. The highlight was definitely the cooking lesson aboard our houseboat on the Kerala backwaters. We had no concerns about safety, security or hygiene, and everything was taken care of for us - thank you Liz! "

Rajasthan is an arid region, with a rich history of a proud people, a land of contrasts with splendid palaces alongside the humbler town dwellings. Our first stop was Jaipur - the “pink city”. The central old town buildings are all pink, as decreed by a rajah centuries ago. The culinary highlight here was a vegetarian thali in an ornate place setting, with folk dancing and traditional music. Also a great place to shop for jewellery and leather - I much regret not buying a beautiful chess set at Jaipur fort.
The next highlight was Udaipur, with its lakes and palaces. We stayed in a palace hotel overlooking the lake, and had open-air breakfast beside the swimming pool. Dinner was again al-fresco, high on a hillside, with traditional dancers, singers and musicians accompanying an excellent meal. In many ways our tour highlight was our palace stay in Jodhpur - a unique and fascinating hotel - our “rustic” suite featured a circular bedroom. We had a cooking lesson, and learned to cook a local speciality - ker sangri - which is a dried seed pod! Our guide took us to a wonderful shop - actually a huge warehouse crammed with manifold Indian artifacts and wonderful fabrics which thoroughly exercised our wallets - we came away with some beautiful fabrics and a gorgeous statuette. Throughout we enjoyed the famous cuisine of Rajasthan, particularly the ubiquitous laal maas - a delicious goat curry. A great tour, and highly recommended for the food, culture and shopping.


I toured the Australian wine regions with Travel Scents. We started with a wine appreciation session, followed by a degustation lunch with matched wines – a highlight of the tour! We visited the premier wine regions in Australia, experiencing the wines of each region and eating the local produce in excellent restaurants. Throughout we stayed at unique boutique hotels. Margaret River was my favourite destination – friendly and intimate, with interesting shops and galleries. We saw some of the scenic highlights of Australia – the Great Ocean road and the Blue Mountains were unforgettable. I loved the helicopter flight around the Twelve Apostles, and came away with some great photos. Altogether a great introduction to Australian food and wine, and the Australian country. Thanks Travel Scents.
