We are driven by a passion for travel, a passion for food, a passion for wine, and a passion for culture. We, Liz and John, Travel Scent’s principals, have a shared love of travel and all things foodie – especially Indian food and Australian wine. Liz has a great knowledge of all the styles of regional Indian cuisine, and is adept at creating them all in her own kitchen.
The idea for Travel Scents arose from our travels in India – to, among many other places, Manali, Lucknow, Chandigarh, Shimla, Rajasthan, Kerala and Goa. We wanted to share the fabulous culinary and cultural experiences with a broader audience, experiences that would largely be missed on a standard tour to India.
For the more adventurous, we offer motor-biking trips in the Himalayas, tailored to the seasonal climatic variations of north-east India, with accommodation ranging from a monastery guest-house to tree houses.
We also want to introduce Indian and other visitors to the joys of Australian wine, and of the local produce featured at many good winery restaurants - the meats, cheeses, fruits and vegetables, chocolate and other delicious comestibles.
All our tours are carefully crafted – we have tried and tested the locations, travel, accommodation, and culinary delights, as well as the specialised tours, guides, and security. Whether your dream is to live and eat like a Maharaja in Jaipur, or motorcycle into the splendour of the Himalayas, immerse yourself in the wines of Margaret River or luxuriate in a spa in Hepburn Springs, we can realise it for you!
