Rolling Out: Michelin, Roadtrips Inc., Team Up For International Culinary Tours

Travel News — By Ben Van Loon on July 29, 2010 at 1:30 pm

Michelin is one of the largest tire manufacturers in the world. Since 1888, they’ve outfitted everything from bicycles to trucks to space shuttles with their brand, which is at this point a household name, as are their subsidiaries, B.F. Goodrich, Taurus, and Uniroyal. In many ways, without Michelin, travel wouldn’t be where it is today.

And then there is Roadtrips Inc., an international ‘travel experience’ company that hosts tours in a variety of unique experiences. For example, you can let them take you on the Porsche Black Forest Driving Experience, where you can take a speedy road tour through Germany’s Black Forest behind the wheel of one of Germany’s luxury automobiles.  If you’re in the mood for something a bit more spectator friendly, you can go with Roadtrips on a VIP tour/viewing in the Chelsea vs. Manchester United in London Experience. All of these trips are high-class experiences for the high-class traveler.

As Michelin is no stranger to travel, with their highly respected Bib Gourmand restaurant guides and their Red and Green travel guides, Michelin is an influential force and inspiration for travelers worldwide. Recently, via PRNewswire, Michelin and Roadtrips Inc announced the new Michelin Food & Travel Experiences. With the popularity of gourmet, food-centric travel on the rise, the partnership between the two organizations makes it convenient for both the fledgling and the seasoned culinary traveler to be led to some of the world’s finest restaurants, tasting some of the world’s finest foods.

Current tours will bring you to Provence where you can sample various Mediterranean delights; on one particular trip you can stay at Villa Gallici or Bastide de Marie, and eat at the world-famous La Miranda – all with the VIP treatment offered by Roadtrips Inc. Alternately, you can head up the Riviera, stay in Saint-Jean-Cap-Ferrat at the Grand Hotel du Cap, and sample some of Chef Jacques Chibois’ finest cuisine.

The itineraries are fully customizable, which means you can go with family, friends, or even make a corporate vacation of the experience. After all, what is a holiday without friends, family, and the finest food in the world? Though, of course – everything in moderation. You don’t want to end up looking like Bibendum on your way home.
