Return the Favor and Give Mom the Gift of Knowledge for Mother’s Day with Learning Experiences from Viator.com
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) May 07, 2013
She was your first teacher. Now it’s time to return the favor, but, with a little bit of flare. Viator.com – the leading resource for researching and booking tours and activities worldwide – has pulled together a selection of fun lessons and learning activities that would make great gifts for Mother’s Day 2013. Whether it’s the kitchen she craves, favors her creative side, yearns for the outdoors, or just wants a beautiful gourmet lunch, Viator has a selection of activities she’ll love to experience, especially with her family members right by her side.
Experience the World’s Kitchens
She’s not only our first teacher but also our first personal chef. Show Mom you know it’s about more than just pot-roast. Treat her to a culinary class taught by a professional chef that will help her expand the dinner-time repertoire to include dishes like New Orleans’ gumbo, Madrid’s tapas and even Italy’s home-made gelato.
The New Orleans Cooking Class in a renovated molasses warehouse features gumbo, jambalaya and pralines.
Learn How to Make Gelato and Pizza in Florence and enjoy the fruits of your labor along with your small group of classmates (there’s even a sneak peek video into what mom can expect).
If Mom’s a sushi lover she’ll enjoy the Kyoto Cooking Class, Sake Tasting and Nishiki Food Market Walking Tour held in a traditional ‘machiya’ wooden townhouse.
When in Spain, mom can emulate the small-plate dining scene and Learn How to Make Paella and Tapas after exploring the food stalls of Torrijos Market.
Cap it all off with a cocktail during the Lima Market Tour and Pisco Sour Lesson where she’ll learn the secrets behind this famous South American favorite.
Celebrate Mom’s Creative Side
Help mom exercise the right side of her brain with a selection of unique and artistic experiences that will leave her with not only special memories, but maybe a few new foreign phrases and dance moves.
During the Perfume Workshop in Paris, mom will learn about perfume, its history and current trends, then create her own special one-of-a-kind scent guided by a top Paris “nose” and expert.
Great for the entire family, Experience Shanghai: Chinese Pottery Class is led by an expert local artist who teaches the methods of shaping the clay and crafting intricate decorations.
Oui! When in Paris, mom can speak the language with help from the Conversational French Language Class in Paris where she’ll learn the basics at the famous Café de Flore.
Mom can soak in India’s colorful dance culture during the Small-Group Bharatanatyam and Bollywood Dance Class in Chennai, India and take home some new dance moves as souvenirs.
Pack Your Wetsuit (and Snowsuit) Mom!
Pralines and perfume make for great travel experiences, but for some moms, it’s all about the great outdoors. Viator has everything from paddleboard tutorials to surfing in Sydney to please the most fresh-air-fueled matriarchs.
It’s not just a celebrity fad, it’s a great workout and serene way to enjoy nature and mom can test her mad balancing skills with Stand-Up Paddleboarding Lessons in San Diego.
Where better than the shores of Australia for mom to tackle the waves and shoot the curl with Surfing Lessons on Sydney’s Bondi Beach?
Mom can soak in the sun of paradise (as well as kayak, snorkel and paddleboard!) while learning a new skill during the Nassau Sailing Adventure with Optional Sailing Lesson in the Bahamas.
It may be spring in parts of the world, but pretty soon mom can hit the slopes in Chile for the Beginner Ski or Snowboard Lesson at La Parva from Santiago, suitable for all levels of skier.
And for a special experience on Mother’s Day itself, travelers lucky enough to be enjoying the beauty of Melbourne, Australia’s “city by the bay” (Port Phillip), have the opportunity to feast, fete and float along the Yarra River during the Melbourne Mother’s Day Lunch Cruise.
