A lifelong love of exceptional food, wine and travel inspired Zsuzsanna Tantos-Rangi to set up Tasteful Tours. With Zsuzsanna as your personal concierge, you will experience the very best that Europe has to offer – culture, art, gastronomy, history – together with lavish accommodation and luxury travel.
Zsuzsanna is originally from Baja, a small medieval town on the banks of the River Danube in southern Hungary. The town is famous for its fish festival and for having the largest cobble-stoned square in Europe. You can read more about Baja and its traditions in this interview with Zsuzsanna as featured by Luxury Holidays & Corporate Travel magazine.
Zsuzsanna's had the travel bug since she was 3. Every summer she would accompany her parents to destinations around Europe, especially the Mediterranean and Adriatic. They lived in a place for a couple of months at a time, so her knowledge is as authentic as any local.
As for food and wine, Zsuzsanna's grandparents owned a vineyard in the famous Tokaj region of Hungary. She has vivid childhood memories of picking grapes and helping to make the wine. The stunning colours of a Hungarian autumn, and the sights, sounds & tastes of the season's cheese and wine festivals are quite extraordinary – which is precisely why Harvest in Hungary is one of Zsuzsanna's favourite tours!
She met her husband, Frank, when they were both visiting New Zealand in 1990. They love travelling – and have done so, widely – but NZ is their permanent home, first in Dunedin and now Auckland.
As a Tasteful Tours guest, you can be assured of Zsuzsanna's professionalism, meticulous attention to detail and European wisdom – as well as her vivacious sense of fun and adventure!
