Still waiting to hear when we can return to our home in #aixenprovence - had hoped for an update from France today, but no such luck :(

Evening shadows in the village - #waterford is a #northernvirginia treasure!

Yes, we couples are six feet apart, and having a fabulous time gathering for the first time this year- an apero in our garden ;)

#cassis - One of those places to which we're longing to return - we always fit in a visit to this seaside charmer whenever we're at home in Aix. I wonder if the water jousters will mount those platforms on the red and blue boats this summer for a tournament in the port?

A yummy quarantine lunch in the greenhouse - prosciutto, avocado, basil and tomato open-face sandwich #foodiefriday

Just a few steps more down this picturesque lane and we would turn the corner towards Ambiance d'Aix, our much-loved home in #aixenprovence. For now, it's a fond remembrance...but #wewillreturn! #frenchhome

Our Story

With a deeper dive into the unique delights and distinctives of the places you’ve loved on Music and Markets Tours through the years, we’ve premiered this alternative in April on southern Italy’s spectacular Amalfi Coast.

The Wonder Tours option means:


  • more free time

  • a more intentional concentration on art and architecture

  • greater focus on the local culture’s food and wine

  • less time dedicated to concertgoing
  • What stays the same is Anne and Kirk’s personal, daily companionship, the small group camaraderie, the much-appreciated meticulous research and planning, and the non-stop background stories, uncovering for you the wonders behind the curtain of our favorite places in Europe.

    Wonder Tours aren’t tethered to particular annual festivals as Music and Markets tours are. So, if a particular destination catches your attention, but the time of year doesn’t work for you, we are free to accommodate you or your group during a different season.

    We are a founding member of Slow Travel Tours http://slowtraveltours.com/, an informal affiliation of small-group tour operators who offer personalized trips in Italy, France and other European countries.
