  • Go retro-hipster-glam on the island of Bali with an afternoon “safari” to some of Bali’s best beaches and beach clubs, where the only hunting you’ll do will be choosing the next great cocktail. There are no wild animals on this safari (unless your group gets a little wild after a few martinis!). Instead, you’ll travel the southwestern Bali coast in a modified 1980 VW Kombi — a bit of retro hipster style to complement your afternoon cocktail adventure. But of course, Bali is not just bars and restaurants — far from it! So along the way, we’ll take you to a small, seldom-seen temple built on a rock in the ocean, where it’s said that fertility prayers are answered (we make no promises).Your long, lazy afternoon is all organised, the bars are booked, and the drinks are chilled and waiting — time to hit the Bali road!

  • Lose yourself in the bustle of Yangon as the city comes alive at sunset. Experience a city evening the way locals do, when night market stalls open and residents finish work and take to the streets. You’ll shop, eat, and drink the evening away in the narrow alleyways frequented by locals but often ignored by tourists. Taste a few local foods, meet some local people, and lounge about downtown with new friends and a cold beer at the end of it all.  Proceeds from all Yangon tours departing on February 28, 2015 will be donated to the #hopeforSkye campaign to help children with Sanfilippo Syndrome.

  • The Dutch don't talk much about their food, unless it’s about pancakes! Pannekoeken are a traditional Dutch treat — sometimes sweet, sometimes savoury, but always delicious! Enjoy this two-hour pancake lunch with David de Slingeraar, your cook, in an historic landmark, the Karthuizerhof — a 14th century monastery turned into 20th century subsidised housing and open garden space. David is 45 years old and has lived in A’dam his whole life (as have four generations of de Slingeraars before him). He has some Jewish history — hence the name David “the slinger” — but spends most of his time now slinging food for people in the local neighbourhood he knows so well. The Dutch base their meals on what they call “the trinity”: two veggies and a meat (oh, and don’t forget the cheese, please!), and David will teach you about these traditions in Dutch cuisine as you enjoy a classic meal of pannekoeken. He looks forward to welcoming you into his home for a tasty Dutch meal.
