Croatia Truffle Festival (ECTF)
Prized by epicureans for their flavour and scarcity, the elusive truffle is the rock star of the fungus world. And nobody celebrates this most exalted of tubers quite like Croatia, home to the annual Truffle Days Festival. Beginning on the island of Cres, our adventure here will introduce you to the idyllic seaside communities of Croatia’s Adriatic Coast and let you partake in a genuine truffle hunt with a professional tartufalo before delivering you to the culinary tuberpalooza itself in Livade. Don’t forget to pack your appetite. (In fact, pack a spare, just in case.)
Highlights: Sampling local delicacies at the world-famous Truffle Days Festival in Livade, tasting fresh olive oil in Cres, searching for truffles with a professional tartufalo, experiencing Groznjan's thriving art scene, visiting medieval Hum- the world’s smallest town.
Bavarian beer, cuisine and culture combine to make this one tour of Germany you don’t want to miss. Imagine singing along with tens of thousands accompanied by ‘oom pah pahs’, while locals clad in lederhosen and feathered hats dance on tables. This is Oktoberfest! Of course, this tour is not only about beer—it’s also about sampling Munich’s cuisine and culture. Your CEO will take the hassle out of organizing so that you’re free to enjoy the party. Experience the lederhosen, the music and the friendliness of Bavaria—Ein Prosit!
Highlights: Revelling in raucous Oktoberfest, digging into hearty regional fare, following Bavarian beer from brewery to tankard and enjoying a tipple or two yourself, shopping for your very own lederhosen.
