Very friendly and knowledgeable host by the name of Martina who took us to the wineries. We loved the wine, and even sent some home (hope it gets here soon!). We were lucky to have only four of us on the tour (my family!)
The cooking class was WONDERFUL! The chef Fabio was so nice and the food was the best that we had the entire week we were in Italy. We visited Venice and Florence first and could not find good food anywhere. The food here was so good we came back the next day to eat dinner. After the short walking tour you are taken to "That's Amore" restaurant where you will take your cooking class. One thing to note is that the only thing you are making is pasta. You will be making 3 different types of fresh pasta. The chef then takes it in the back to cook the food. Even with that, the class was so much fun. I would definitely recommend the restaurant and cooking class. The walking tour was just ok. We had a mixed crowd, some German and some English speaking participants. The tour guide had to then repeat everything she said in German as well. This took away from the tour as it was hard to pay attention to what the guide was saying. I think for future classes it needs to be all one language. Perhaps have different tours for different languages.

This was great! They take you to all these great little places to try samples. You won't need dinner afterwards and you'll be on a sugar high! We first of all went to a place and tried granita.. Just beautiful, then espresso... We then went to 2 gelato shops and it was amazing! They give you big samples so you're so full, and then you try the most amazing tiramisu I've ever tasted!!! :) If you are a foody definitely do this tour :) You learn a lot about the coffee making, gelato making and tiramisu making processes too. Very interesting.
An Excellent trip to a lovely city, a charming young lady vintner for our wine tasting who joined in the humour that abounded in our small group trip: Ciao Bella
Danielle, our guide, was terrific. The tour itself was well planned and fun, even for my 2 teenage granddaughters. The group was small so that we interacted rather than just following a guide. The 5 o'clock tour turned into dinner for us that evening. The choice of foods was great and we even cooked 2 of the meals when we returned home.
This was a small tour, only 5 of us and absolutely incredible! Matteo was our guide and he was very informative, and welcoming. Beautiful country up in Tuscany, great wine and lunch and we had a terrific time! A must do!
Do you want a walking food tour in Rome? This is it! Delmonico (excuse the spelling) was our our guide and he was incredible. THIS is a food tour off of the tourist path and if we had missed this, well let's just say my wife and I are SO glad we didn't! Delmonico showed us and taught us everything from where food used to be shipped into Rome, markets, restaurants, food history, desserts, pizza, various meats and cheeses etc etc etc. Fantastic tour and excellent personable guide! This is another must tour! Perfecto!!

We had a great time. The food was fabulous, who doesn't love homemade pasta. The other attendees were so much fun and our Chef Fabio was so engaging.

AMAZING!!! The trip to the farm was the highlight of our trip to Florence--Carlo's passion was palatable and shined through in his food and wine. This trip is well worth the cost and I highly, highly recommend it!
This was THE place to go for the taste of wonderful wine locally produced. So much fun and what beautiful views. The 45 min. drive took us to the hills overlooking breathtaking Roma. The tour included visiting the fields where the grapes and olives are grown. Inside we tasted several whites/reds.A+
Absolutely wonderful day. Mattel, our tour guide, was knowledgeable and very friendly. We enjoyed six wines at two different wineries and a lovely lunch to cap it all off. Best of all, there was no rush. We were free to take pictures and enjoy the wine until we were ready to move on from each stop.
Wow! Best excursion we picked. A great day, great chef and great food. Looking forward to recreating some of the dishes at home.

We had a beautiful day in the country. The Tuscan countryside is spectacular. We toured two vineyards and had an amazing meal in between. I learned so much about Chianti wines. I had no idea there was so much complexity to producing these amazing wines. Highly recommend the trip.
What a brilliant day out!! From the views you get to see travelling from one place to another, to the wonderful little villages you get to visit, it was fantastic. The wine tour around the castle was extremely enjoyable and informative and the wine tasting was of course wondeful.
I would recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys wine and wants to see the beautiful countryside of Tuscany!
Amazing. Our guide Jacomo was awesome- very knowledgeable and friendly. The wineries were beautiful and the last stop at the castle was a great end to the trip. One of our favourite days on our honeymoon.
