A Culturious tour group takes a cooking class in Provence.
A new style of guided-travel tours, Culturious, specializes in small groups and engages them in the cultures they’re visiting by being hands-on and immersive.
Meeting and event planners should note that typical group size is 20 people, says Tom Armstrong, corporate communications manager for the Norwalk, Conn.-based tour company. “With enough notice, and depending on the itinerary, we might be able to accommodate a somewhat larger group,” he adds.
For 2011, the company has scheduled eight Culturious itineraries: Tuscany & Cinque Terre; Venice & the Veneto; Provence; Paris & the Loire Valley; Four Corners, Southwest USA; Yellowstone & the Tetons: American Safari; Costa Rica; and South Africa & Namibia.
Tours feature active components like hiking, biking, kayaking and horseback riding, and cooking classes, for example, coupled with stays in boutique hotels.
