About us

Travel Scents provides carefully crafted tours to India and Australia for the national and international markets, providing the ultimate in culinary, wellness and adventure experiences.

How we started

A passion for travel, a passion for food, a passion for wine, a passion for culture. Liz and John, Travel Scent’s principals, have a shared love of travel and all things foodie – especially Indian food and Australian wine. Liz has a great knowledge of all the styles of regional Indian cuisine, and is adept at creating them all in her own kitchen. The idea for Travel Scents arose from their travels in India – to, among many others, Manali, Lucknow, Chandigarh, Shimla, Rajasthan, Kerala and Goa. They wanted to share the fabulous culinary and cultural experiences with a broader audience, experiences that would largely be missed on a standard tour to India.
