We were absolutely thrilled from the start with this exceptionally professional and enjoyable cooking class. Though the visit to the Campo dei Fiori market was brief, we selected our ingredients, with assistance from Frederico our chef and guide and proceeded to the kitchen- classroom. We were given lots of excellent insights into techniques and methods of preparing and cooking different vegetables, herbs, sauces and meats. The highlight though was really learning and understanding how to make pasta ourselves. The pleasure was doubled when we sat around and ate what we had made. While this class was a real highlight, it was mainly due to the enthusiasm and patience of Frederico our chef and teacher. His love of cooking shone through everything he showed us. We hope to recall this when we return to our own kitchen - or else we shall just have to return!
Seoul, South Korea
We liked the scope of the tour and what we saw in a short time was really good but the guide had to rush to meet the ceremonires at the 'changing of the guard" palace and also the "bell ringing" at the temple. Perhaps this tour should commence earlier? Also the guide needed to stop at intervals to speak directly to the participants to be heard over the traffic. His Eenglish was poor and although very keen and conscientious, he needed to learn to stop and explain, rather than to lead the way talking as he went. despite this, we enjoyed the tour and would recoomend it.

This was a great day tour which covered several major areas of the Medoc and the first stop and rapid lesson in Medoc wines was excellent as an introduction. Subsequent stops at vineyards and tastings were really good. The lunch stop at Puillac was OK but less so if you wanted a snack rather than a restaurant meal as there was only a small bakery which had almost run out of food and it was Sunday so no supermarket/store was open - just seaside restaurants. We had a great day and enjoyed the background information and professionalism of our guide Sarah.
This tour covered interesting outlying towns and villages on the way from Budapest to the Danube Bend and we had an excellent guide whose commentary was insightful and meaningful. The tour included a lunchstop restaurant whose terrace afforded wonderful views and had the weather been better, would have been a delightful spot for taking lunch. A good day out from Budapest!
Have used Viator many many times but this bus tour was not good because one of the stops had been discontinued even though the sign was still there and we waited for over 30 mins. Once we found another stop we waited for it for over 30 mins also. Timing for the Naples bus needs to be improved. Also there MUST be a stop near the central train station. The actual start point requires a taxi or bus to get there and yet the train station is the central transport hub.
