Guided Walking Holidays in Asia and India

Walking Tours Asia

Our philosophy is simple - to get out of the cities and into the countryside where you can discover the charm and beauty of the Asian regions such as India and Japan. Walking with a small, like minded group is the best way to explore them. It is important to have time to "smell the roses", not to rush through but to soak up the atmosphere. We are great believers that the journey is what matters, not the destination! All our holidays in Asia are guided - we are not there to overload you with facts and figures but discreetly share with you the wonderful places we have discovered during our "journey".

About gourmet food and wine in India and Japan

India and Japan are two countries with unique culinary traditions and a rich history of producing fine wines. In India, cuisine varies widely depending on the region, but many dishes are characterized by the use of spices and herbs. One example of a popular Indian dish is biryani, a flavorful rice dish often made with chicken or lamb. Another well-known dish is tikka masala, a creamy curry typically made with chicken, tomato, and spices. When it comes to wine, India has been producing wines since the 1980s, and has since gained recognition for its high-quality offerings. Some of the most famous Indian wines include Sula Vineyards' Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc, and Grover Zampa Vineyards' La Reserve and Chêne Grand Reserve. In Japan, cuisine is heavily influenced by the country's geography and culture. Sushi, sashimi, and ramen are among the most famous dishes, but there are also many regional specialties to try. Japanese cuisine is known for its emphasis on freshness and presentation. When it comes to wine, Japan has a growing wine industry, with many wineries producing high-quality wines. One example is Grace Winery, which produces award-winning wines made from Koshu, a unique grape variety grown in Japan.
