Our Travel Services
Boutique Group Travel. Private Group Travel. Custom Travel Planning.
Travel planning can be stressful, overwhelming, time consuming, and after all that effort you could still end up in a tourist trap. Our goal at Salt & Wind is to handle it all for you and to make your food-focused travels a joy!
We believe the best travel planners are those who know a place really well. We’re highly-focused on the places we travel — we speak the languages, we’ve got years of experience, and have personally vetted every spot we recommend. For that reason we specialize in a few specific destinations, namely, California, Hawaii, Mexico, Italy, France, and Spain.
We help our clients experience unique food travels in three ways: through small boutique group trips via private group travel and with custom travel planning services. Read on for more about each type of service:

Why We Focus Our Travels On A Few Destinations
Regional Specialists. Local Expertise. Deep Connections.
We believe the best travel planners are those who know a place really well. As in speak the language, work there regularly, and have expertise in everything from the local food to history and culture.
For that reason we specialize in a few specific places, namely, California, Hawaii, Mexico, Italy, France, and Spain.
Why these destinations? They all have a deep sense of place, vibrant food culture, strong creative scenes, and unique local makers — the very things we believe that makes a destination magical.
While all the Salt & Wind staff is familiar with each of our destinations, we have certain team members act as experts in the various destinations. Whether you join a group trip or have us plan a custom itinerary for you, you’ll be partnered with the team member who knows that place best.
