Our group of four really enjoyed the cooking class and lunch tour. This was one of our best days in Tuscany! The amount of food, wine, and beer was incredible and we ate what we created. The chef Carmela was fantastic and the tour director Lavinia was outstanding! For anyone who would like a truly unique experience you need to do this!
It was very fabulous and the guide very great also!
Wonderful scenery, people, food and experience!
Highly recommend for everyone!
It made my Italy trip...
Would recommend this to anyone coming into Florence even do this before you start sightseeing it was utterly incredible will definitely do it again
Fantastic!! Mara, out tour guide, started our day with a walk through the city in route to the mercado centranale (one of my favorite places). This review space is too small but the cooking and country setting were incredible-- fun, informative, incredible food and wine! Book it. You'll love it!
What an amazing tour! We had a great time. Our Tour-guide was fun a lot of fun. Lunch was fabulous!
We had an amazing tour with Stefano! He taught us so much about the wine making and Tuscan culture. Our group enjoyed the food, the wine and the history we learned. Stefano kept it entertaining and educational.
This tour was very well thought out with each stop adding a unique taste of Tuscany. As great as the tour was our guide Luca was better. His knowledge of the history in the area, the wines we tasted, and being well traveled himself allowed him to be relatable to everyone in the group.
This tour was the highlight of our time in Florence! The tour guide was informative and charming as she took us around town to the markets. The location in the Tuscan hills was gorgeous, with wood fired outdoor pizza oven, large marble cooking surfaces to play on and glass walled dining room over looking the hills outside Florence. We learned to make a full Italian meal, (too much food) all while enjoying wine and each others company. We made bruschetta appetizer, small pizza, pasta noodles and meat sauce, pork roast and potatoes, and gelato and tiramisu for dessert. My daughter and I had a wonderful time and would love to go back!
Our tour was absolutely amazing and Chris is a fantastic tour guide! He is very knowledgeable, friendly, and fun! It is so obvious that he loves what he is doing! The sights, food, wine, and hospitality at all of the places we visited exceeded our expectations! If you are trying to decide between this tour and another ... Choose this one, you will not be disappointed!

Perfect in every way. Luca, our guide was terrific and the entire day was outstanding. From the logistics, to the scenery to the food and wine, it would be difficult to improve this tour.
My wife, my daughter and I went on this tour and thoroughly enjoyed it. Stephano our guide was fantastic, funny, knowledgeable and even in the pouring rain we enjoyed every minute!
This was the absolute perfect way to kick off our visit to Florence! Great food, great wine, with a very informative and fun guide. We will definitely repeat this same tour when we go back to Firenze :D
This tour is a must! My husband did not want to do this tour when I first booked it! Let's just say we both agreed that this was our absolute favorite experience while visiting Italy! Antonella was a great tour guide and extremely kind! Ugh. Miss it already. First you will go grocery shopping in Florence which includes a quick coffee stop. Then you will have a short ride to the countryside. There you will cook tons of food and drink plenty of wine with a gorgeous view of Florence. The family house is also gorgeous and fun to cook in! Some of the dishes you will cook as a group and others you will make on your own. Seriously the best pizza we ate while in Italy. You will make your own pasta too! You will meet great people and make sure to bring a camera for these priceless moments!
I recommend not leaving Italy without doing this tour. Whether you are a regular cook or not at all, it is a lot of fun and recipes are relatively easy to do. I appreciated the market tour in the morning and the history lessons along the way. I enjoyed going to the markets as part of the experience.
The setting and kitchen in the Tuscan countryside was wonderful and unique.
I had so much fun and the food we made was outstanding. I would do this tour again in a heartbeat.
The best wine tour I've every done. It will be very difficult to top. Our tour guide, Chris, who works for walkaboutflorence, was the best tour guide I have ever had in my life. He is a well rounded up-standing guy who his very knowledgeable of Italy's history, specifically the Tuscan/Chianit region and an excellent guide for the wine tour.
Beautiful countryside, amazing wine and olive oil. The food for our lunch was outstanding.
