What's the best time to go on the European Cooking Trip?

Europe is best enjoyed in the summer time, which is in the months May, June, July and August, with the so-called Indian summer days in September.

You can already make your reservation for the European Cooking Trip in the summer of 2017.

The English speaking guide and your driver

The experienced and fully certified guide on this trip is Ramon Stoppelenburg, also the organizer of this trip. He will also be your permanent driver and companion in Europe and handles all behind-the-scenes logistics and is there to help with anything from haggling for a rug to buying a tube of toothpaste. Everything will be arranged for you, so you don’t have to worry about anything yourself.

Transport by mini-van

The best way to travel from one location to the next in Europe is by car and therefore we will be travelling in a luxury people transporter like the new Opel Vivaro or the Ford Transit. These vans are excellent ways of transportation, while still enjoying the scenery surrounding you.

According to European laws, your driver has to take a fifteen minutes break after every two hours of driving. Your driver will comply with this law, which should be no problem for all participants as it gives nice breaks on the road to stretch the legs or have a meal.
