Former Sydney-based jewellery designer Rebecca Raft will open her riad in the Moroccan city of Fez to travellers on a new bespoke tour by Gourmet Traveller and luxury travel company Abercrombie & Kent.
An insider's tour of the city's medina by Raft, of Bouvier Jewellery, is among the highlights of small-group tours exploring the culinary and cultural traditions of Morocco as well as India.
In Morocco, the journey begins in Casablanca, and takes in the ancient cities of Chefchaouen, Volubilis, Fez, Meknes and Marrakech. Highlights include a night at a desert camp and private access to the cellars of the Royal Mansour in Marrakech. In India, the flavours of Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur, Mumbai and Goa are explored in street-food tours, home-cooking classes and fine-diners.
