WINE, FOOD & CULTURE TRAVELS

TRAVELS WITH BILLY & KATO 2013

I’d like to invite you to join Kato and I on one of our wine adventure holidays! Wine, food & culture camps – for active bodies and minds. Unique experiences for unique souls.

Take a peek at the 2013 schedule. Only 14 to 18 travelers per trip – most are a week-long. Short but action-packed!

WHO SHOULD TRAVEL WITH US?
The brave and reckless, of course! Those with a love of adventure and social interaction are obvious candidates. On the physical side, good walking ability and drinking stamina are sort of essential skills. The focus is on activity and participation – ‘adult camp’ as Kato calls it. There is free time, but not a lot, and very little of the usual tourist sight seeing. We try our best to become part of the culture, pretend we are locals.

Hence our recommendation to book an added week for your own exploring (and relaxing). We are delighted to have Ellison Travel & Tours (https://ettravel.com/) on board as our travel partner, with Kelly Richards (kellyr@ettravel.com) as our assigned agent.This family run business (since 1980, now with 70 employees in Canada) will deliver outstanding service and support.

Unlike most, Billy’s Best Bottles tours does not publish daily itineraries. Why? We like to remain flexible and work around weather and local events – and those who have travelled with us have said that they enjoyed the surprise element as it kept them ‘in the moment’. We ask that you greet us with enthusiasm, a trusting open mind, good health, and an empty wine glass (not for long!). You’ll also notice that we don’t cheap out with accommodations – we try to pick the coolest – nor do we offer few padded itineraries with ‘evenings free’– to us, time over the dinner table is most precious, and includes lots of wine, not just ‘a glass’.

“Everything was beautifully organized from beginning to end, evidence of much thought, research and preparation. The days were well structured and each one different but always filled with fun and good times. The venues were beautiful and the meals superb. The wine tastings were many and varied but all a learning experience! Billy’s expertise was much appreciated and recognized not only by those of us in the group but also by the various wine producers we met.”
Hally Simmons, Ottawa

“I truly believe was one of the best times of my life.”
Chris Rogers, Prince Edward County

“To be on a tour with the talented excursionists Billy and Kato, is to experience both the depth and lightheartedness of other cultures. The Munnelley’s are well loved, so doors open for them and their travelling companions!”
Heather Peacock, Toronto
