Morocco specialist By Prior Arrangement spreads its wings around the globe in 2016, extending its signature bespoke tours to new destinations in South Africa, France and Scotland. Meanwhile, Morocco remains BPA’s number one destination. Food and wine, travel writing and photography, music, art, architecture and museums are the focus of five new programmes for 2016, with each tour led by experts in their field.

In March, travellers have the opportunity to experience South Africa’s culinary delights in the company of celebrated chef Martin Boetz, visiting award-winning vineyards and restaurants in the Franschhoek Valley and the Cape Dutch farm, Babylonstoren, plus a sojourn at Tintswalo, recently judged the country’s finest five-star safari lodge.

Also in March, they can glean the secrets of great travel writing and photography from leading Australian journalists Lee Tulloch and Tony Amos as they lead a tour through Morocco visiting Rabat, Tangier, Fes, Marrakech and the Atlas Mountains.

In April, BPA founder Carol Prior teams up with John Crawley to share their passion for Moroccan interior design, gardens and culinary. With a lifetime of experience of local culture, they are the perfect duo to reveal the rich and beautiful traditions of this exotic country, visiting Rabat, Fes, Marrakech, the Atlas Mountains and Essaouira.

May is the month for Scottish flavours on a tour to Glasgow, a city with world-class architecture, modern art museums and a wonderfully eclectic food scene. Travellers can gain an insight into the works of revered architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh in the company of preeminent Mackintosh scholar Peter Trowles.

Meanwhile, in Morocco in May, music is in the air when Australian music boffin, travel writer and all-round culture vulture Glenn A Baker leads an adventure to the Atlas mountains, the coastline at Essaouira and the medinas of Fes and Marrakech. This includes four nights at the world-renowned Fes Festival of World Sacred Music.

In June, travellers can stay in a restored old French monastery in Le Lot-et-Garonne. They’ll spend sunny days painting by the river Lot in the company of two celebrated local artists and enjoy the wonderful local produce and Malbec wines. This region is one of France’s best-kept foodie secrets.
