Every year Travel Directions offers new opportunities for specialty travel.  We are currently offering unique Culinary Tours and Whiskey Tours around the world.

Key West

Travel with Doc Culinary Insider Tours

We recently completed our first Travel with Doc Culinary Insiders Tour to Miami and Key West.  Many more itineraries are being planned for 2017 and beyond.  Trips include interaction with chefs, their restaurants and the resources they use to make their dining experience one-of-a-kind.  Group size is small and the tour includes all meals and excursions.

Whiskey Tours Around the World


Travel Directions partnered up with 9 Maple, a classic whiskey bar in Saratoga Springs, NY, and the Saratoga Whiskey Club to provide whiskey tours around the world.  In 2015 we led a group to visit 11 distilleries in Scotland and in 2016 we traveled to Ireland to visit distilleries and breweries.  2017 includes Kentucky and Islay, Scotland.  Trips include cultural interaction with a focus on history and spirits.

Ireland Craft Beer & Whiskey Tours

Travel Directions has partnered with a small group tour operator in Ireland that provides the traveler and beer enthusiast with a unique and high quality holiday experience. The tour combines an appreciation of Ireland’s emerging independent craft beer industry with visits to the abundance of heritage sites interspersed among the stunning scenery that Ireland has to offer.
