The California Bucket List: Your daily guide to the best adventures and experiences in the Golden State

Dave and Sue Sweet: Best tour guides ever in Europe

I spent 17 blissful days touring the unspoiled countryside of France with Dave and Sue Sweet, based in New Zealand. We stayed in a beautiful châteaux in the middle of peaceful meadows. This charming duo has been running small-group tours (only six people) in Europe for 15 years, and they know where and when to see it at its uncrowded best. It's all-inclusive, including all the food and wine you could possibly want. Tours from about $5,000.
