The secret of the best cuisine of France, in the capital of gastronomy with a Michelin Star chef who also speaks English is a recipe for a perfect day. During a private workshop in an iconic place, the Paul Bocuse Halles. This location is Lyon's famed indoor food market with nearly 5 dozen stalls selling countless gourmet delights. Even without a chef to direct you, this should not be missed, but you will have the advantage of the guidance of your well-known English speaking culinary artist.

After a personalized welcome at the workshop, you can expect an introduction to the dishes that you will cook together during this unforgettable day. The first hour will be a tour of Les Halles de Lyon Paul Bocuse, also called the 'belly of Lyon'. Here amidst the local vendors you will learn about the gastronomic heritage of the city of Lyon and the Rhône-Alpes region. Accompanied by the Michelin chef you will discover the expertise of the iconic products that make the reputation of French gastronomy. Enjoy 2 tastings during this portion of the experience.

The next segment which will last about 1.5 hours is all about cooking. French cuisine is the ultimate in the world of epicureanism. The chef and his team will help you achieve your starter and the main course, guiding and lending their hands to help.

Now for the best part of the day, a leisurely 2 hour lunch. This will start with an aperitif of sparkling wine from this region, to be served in the workshop. Accompanied by savory madeleines, candied tomatoes and olives, you will have some moments for reflection about what is coming. Then enjoy your dishes together, and imagine recreating them once you return home. There is nothing like a memory to serve as a souvenir but just in case, take a lot of photos!

In Cozumel we enjoyed the snorkeling that we did off a catamaran. The staff was friendly, very professional, and helpful with my first time snorkeling daughter. Grand Cayman we went to sting ray city with a trip and snorkeling. Staff and trip was amazing, crew very helpful and fun. in Jamaica we did a Dunn's River Falls excursion and private beach. We had fun but were not impressed with the staff, and their timeliness (waited around alot),

Traveling into Russia can be nerve-wracking (and getting more so every day) -- but ShoreTrips made it easy by providing all of the paperwork and instructions, as well as organizing good guides.
