The Language House Travel Med Tours has been in operation since 2004 and is a network of local experts who share their professional knowledge of the various disciplines of our tour programs. Our clients have the opportunity to meet and talk with the local chefs, wine producers, artisans, sommeliers and historians. This organization follows the premise that no one can really know a country or culture better than the native specialists themselves.
Our tours are overseen by:
