The GRAND MOTO FOOD TOUR of Slovenia and Croatia Featuring Famed Chefs Claudio Aprile, Scott Crawford, and Curtis Duffy Captivating Croatia Tours (which is Richard Gruica, Good Eats and Meets founders other project) and Clutch Moto Tours invite you to be one of a very select few to participate in a truly one of a kind adventure: THE GRAND MOTO FOOD TOUR. Join Chefs Claudio Aprile, Scott Crawford, and Curtis Duffy, from September 1-8, 2019 as they hit the OPEN ROAD TO FEED THE SOUL! From start to finish, the culture and surroundings of Slovenia and Croatia will amaze guests with their incredible natural beauty. Accompanied by fresh and flavorful cuisine from the visited regions, these 3 amazing chefs will share their perspectives (and even maybe a few secrets!). This 8 day/7-night super luxury holiday is a dream come true for culinary connoisseurs and moto enthusiasts alike! Designed to provide every degree of flexibility and leisure, this tour features 2 traveling options:  7 ultra-exclusive new Ducati Multistrada motorcycles, the ULTIMATE adventure bike for infinite riding conditions; each can hold 1 or 2 people, depending on your preference.  A luxury bus, for non-riders or those looking for a break from the bike. The 3 featured chefs will be joined by 2 professional Ducati guides, leading the motorcyclists at all times. Each day, guests will explore similar parts of the country, with specific activities and routes designed to suit the unique vantage point of the motorcycle rider or non-riding guest. Based on the daily itinerary and individual preferences, moto guests (driver or passenger) can opt to ride for all, part, or none of the day and instead choose to join our group in the luxury bus with Chef Richard Gruica of Captivating Croatia Tours as host. This way, you can feel free to have an extra glass of wine at lunch without worrying about comfort or safety. A special trailer will transport your bike, so it will be there when you are ready to join the group later. Your only focus should be enjoying the naturally beautiful and fairytale-like regions of Slovenia and Croatia while experiencing the best in food and drinks of the area! Our journey begins in the Slovenian capital of Ljubljana, a city of culture and world-class cuisine. We will spend 2 nights here before traveling south on winding roads through the iconic scenery. We will stop in Lipica with its world-renowned majestic stallions, as well as a stop in Piran known for its sea salt on our way to the next stop is Motovun, a spectacular hilltop village in Croatia’s central Istria. We will spend 2 nights in this famous truffle and wine region, exploring all that the area has to offer. Heading back towards Slovenia, near the border of Italy, we will experience the raw nature that is Bovec, including visits to trout farms and mountain top cheese making facilities. Our time there will be capped off with a gourmet dinner at Hisa Franko, home to Ana Ros, one of the top chefs in the world. We will conclude the trip in Bled, known for its beautiful mountain valley and pristine lakes. Throughout the trip, you will see, taste, and experience the untouched beauty of Croatia and Slovenia. The cuisine, culture, and crafts have been virtually unchanged from antiquity and are steeped in history and tradition. Tickle your taste buds with curated gourmet tastings and meals. Listen to stories from the winemakers themselves, sample fresh products while touring farms, and learn about the centuries-old traditions of artisan meat, cheese, and olive oil production. Whether on a bike or in the luxury bus, come hit the open road with us to explore scenic towns and villages with their old-world charm. This is a once-in-a-lifetime adventure, and we look forward to hosting you!
