Stay in a 500-year old hacienda and learn about Singani production in Bolivia, explore the vineyards of Chile’s Bío Bío Valley by quadbike, take part in a private barrel tasting at one of Mendoza’s top wineries, check out the quinoa lab in a plant-based restaurant in La Paz, or learn traditional costeño home-cooking in Cartagena – If there’s one thing we know about travel, it’s that you have to taste a culture to understand it.
We’ve built up a black book of the best chefs, wine producers, cocktail makers, street-food specialists and baristas from Colombia to Argentina. They’ll immerse you in multi-sensory journeys from grape to glass and farm to table, to give you an insider’s view on the integral role of food and drink in local life.
Our destinations are bursting with organic wineries and butter-soft Argentinian steak, ancestral indigenous cuisines and vegan extravaganzas, ceremonial cacao and bio-dynamic coffee. We’ll shine a spotlight on rare Amazonian fruits and hearty Andean fare, native, colonial and global influences.
Whether you’re intrigued by the history of ancient varieties of corn, looking for the inside track on experimental closed-door restaurants, or just hankering after late night cocktails at secret speakeasys, allow us to guide you, inspire you, wine and dine you.
Like a freshly-made caipirinha on Sugarloaf mountain at the end of a day’s exploring, our food experiences will cut through any tired notions with zing.
You’ll go home knowing how to pronounce feijoada – of course – but we’ll also turn you into a spokesperson for cuisine most people have only just begun to discover.
We are winding down after our tour of Buenos Aires at the truly delightful Legado Mitico. Absolutely everything has been perfect and exceeded expectations and we are looking forward to La Bamba tomorrow. But we wanted to especially call to your attention and thank you for our guide in Iguaçu, Tadeu. This gentleman is a warm, knowledgeable and generous soul who totally captivated us and provided us with the experience of a lifetime. The falls took on a spiritual dimension under his guidance, not to mention good fun, smiles and laughter.
Spreading the word
Tom, we have had the most wonderful holiday, quite beautifully organised by you and beautifully looked after wherever we went. Thank you a million times. We will definitely be spreading the Dehouche name about, once back in Scotland!
A Peruvian expedition
I wanted to thank you for a wonderful trip. The guides were excellent and very knowledgeable. Your local staff helped with any issues. All your suggestions were perfect.
I will definitely use you again and recommend you to my friends.
Thank you again.
Guides that became friends
Seeing as I was a solo traveller, both Veronica and Walter helped make my visits to Cusco, the Sacred Valley and Machu Picchu memorable and I felt I was traveling with helpful friends rather than disinterested employees. My thanks to both of them for making my visit one that I will remember for a long time!
Full marks Inca Trail
In short, it was excellent. Your suggested itinerary, accommodations, restaurants, etc. were superb. Everything went as planned. We rate the parts of the trip you were responsible for as a 10/10. The guides on the Inca trail were excellent. They were professional, attentive and observant. We would love to travel with Holger and Ceasar again. The tents and food on the trail were excellent also.
Overall, a great experience and we will be telling friends and family about Dehouche's excellent planning and execution for the trip.
