Aboard the 105-foot Naples Princess yacht, passengers live like royalty. They can tan on the upper sun deck, relax in the air-conditioned cabins below, or feast on lunch buffets and gourmet dinners. Passengers can explore local waterways during tours, which often catch glimpses of marine animals like dolphins, seabirds, and other wildlife, along with views of Port Royal's luxury homes and the Gulf of Mexico's majestic sunsets.
The doors of a vintage-inspired trolley fold open, inviting guests to recline in one of the padded seats for a windows-eye view of Naples. During a two-hour sightseeing tour that skirts along the coast, the driver contributes to mental history books with interesting facts, anecdotes, and humorous stories, bringing to life the one hundred points of interest on the tour’s route. Hop-on, hop-off access lets guests jump off as many times as they'd like at any of the 23 stops if a site strikes their fancy or if a fire hydrant starts spraying ice cream. Patrons can then reboard when a trolley returns one hour later. The trolleys are also available for charter services, wedding parties, or office outings that want to get a look at Naples's most attractive highlights and ugliest construction zones.
Vintage trolleys typically don't come with a "pause" button. But at Naples Trolley Tours, they don't have to—passengers can stop and start their trip at any of 21 designated stops. That's because the tour runs all day, completing a coastal route that wends past more than 100 sights and landmarks. Throughout, guides accompany each point of interest, from the 5th Street Beach to the Philharmonic and Naples Museum of Art, with lighthearted narration, leaving plenty of room for questions and for people to disembark.
Off the trolley, patrons browse the Waterside Shops or Ooh Lala Jewels Du Jour, eat at restaurants such as Bayside Seafood Grill & Bar, or tan at LaPlaya Beach Resort until they can successfully hide in a pile of pennies. When they're all set, they can reboard the tour—and continue the narration—where they left off.
When Gerald Bennett began work as head chef at the InterContinental Hotel in Cleveland, he was accustomed to whipping up dishes for celebrity clientele. But when the royal family of Dubai came to visit and he served them in their opulent suite, he never thought they'd ask him to leave with them as their personal chef. Since returning to the states and stepping into his role as the president of the Private Chef Association, Gerald has worked to bring his gastronomic prowess to the masses through Food Fun Adventure’s classes and tours. He passes along a visible passion for culinary fusion, which shines through in dishes blending French and Thai or American and German influences.
Culinary tours take participants to local sushi houses, steak houses, and bistros, each highlighting specialty dishes. When head chefs come out to greet their visitors, they often divulge culinary secrets and answer questions about curfew hours for free-range ingredients while doling out tapas and other small plates.
In a more hands-on culinary experience, customers gather in classes and learn to refine dishes based on a chosen theme. Using mostly local and organic ingredients in two kitchen classrooms, chefs show students how to craft delicacies such as scallion waffles with orange-zest chicken and tagine-roasted rack of lamb. In one kitchen, which doubles as an art gallery, knives flick through ingredients, and pots clatter at island stations and small burners. The company’s event center, Heaven, fills with chatter as up to 40 pairs of students filter in. Beneath projectors for screening chef demonstrations and documentaries about the life of a paring knife, separate kitchens equipped with ovens and burners fill with the bustle of creation, which gives way to reverent exhalations as patrons finally sample the fruits of their labor.
