Most of us think that Holidays are just that – Holidays – something that is essentially an escape from all things learning, or a break from work. True as it is, have you ever thought of having a fun, learning time while being on a Holiday? Yep, it is possible to actually have your cake and eat it too! All you need to do is just know how to mix and match!

Hunter Valley Tour and Wine Appreciation Course: We all love our wines. But how many of us really know anything behind our much-loved companion? This tour gives you the chance to learn everything you have always wanted to know about wines. Located just 2 hours drive North of Sydney, Hunter Valley Tour is one of Australia’s greatest and oldest wine areas. The ‘Introduction to Wine Appreciation’ course will increase your knowledge of wine – the styles, techniques and how to blend your own wine. You can also enjoy private wine tastings here.

Cadbury Chocolate Factory Tour with River Cruise: Now how about a Cadbury factory tour for the sweetest tour in town! Located in Hobart, Australia, this Chocolate factory tour lets you learn about the history of the company and its tireless quest for chocolate perfection. You can also get Cadbury products at discount prices. What’s more? The tour also includes a peaceful 90-minute cruise back to Hobart on the tranquil waters of the Derwent River.

Balinese Cooking Lesson with Market Visit Tour: A heaven for food lovers, Balinese Cooking Class will teach you all you need to know about Balinese cuisine. At this one-day cooking class, you will learn the authentic cooking techniques and become familiar with the fresh herbs, spices, and other ingredients that make Balinese food so delightfully tasty and nutritious.

New Orleans Cooking and History Tour: Another foodie’s dream trip, this tour lets you learn famous Louisiana-style Cajun and Creole dishes from top chefs and provides you free cookbook from the New Orleans Cooking School. The best part of this tour is that it is a flexible package, which means you could spread the activities over a period of time, rather than doing all in one day.
