Trafalgar’s carefully crafted holidays mean you can leave your guidebooks at home and delve deeper into the destinations you love. Led by an expert guide, experience the uniqueness of each destination — from the icons and secret local spots to accommodation that’s an important piece of the area’s heritage. 

Be My Guest

Trafalgar’s Be My Guest experiences immerse you in local life — from tasting produce direct from farms and vineyards to uncovering history in ryokans and castles. Up in Italy’s Tuscan hills, for example, Count Miari Fulcis’ 15th-century organic olive oil estate offers guests a guided tour and an olive oil tasting session followed by a regional feast. 

The prize

To celebrate the 10-year anniversary of its exclusive Be My Guest experiences, Trafalgar is offering one lucky National Geographic Traveller Food reader a private dining experience like no other. The winner will receive a specially crafted three-course meal whipped up by a private chef in the comfort of their own home. What’s more, they can invite up to 10 friends to join them, and the experience includes a selection of wines to complement this culinary feast.
