VIENNA -- The Austrian Tourist Office is promoting the city's
coffeehouse culture by partnering with author and chef Rick Rodgers
and Smolka Tours of Tinton Falls, N.J., to brew a six-night
Culinary Delights Tour of Habsburg-era dining hot spots.
Priced at $2,650 per person, double, with a $250 single
supplement, the tour includes roundtrip air, accommodations with
daily breakfast, two cooking and two pastry lectures, all meals and
a concert ticket.
In addition, Rodgers leads a walking tour of Vienna cafes.
Three-night trip extensions to Salzburg, Austria; Prague, Czech
Republic; and Budapest, Hungary also are available.
The tour departs twice this fall, on Sept. 14 and Oct. 5;
Rodgers will join the Budapest extension in September and the
Prague visit in October.
