Highly recommend this tour. We had a very amiable group of 12 plus the guide in a small van. Try to do everything that is offered ... the tour is so much better when you experience everything. The one change I would suggest is that more food be included in the fee. The only meal provided was breakfast, so we were always looking for lunch and dinner on our own unless we ate dinner in the hotels. The hotels were all nice (3 to 4 star as advertised). Travel between sites does take time, but the guide will tell you history or interesting facts or just play music if tired of talking. Since we would never try to drive to all the places we saw, we recommend this tour if you want to see all the sites listed on the itinerary.
Really fun class. Food was delicious and the people in our group were lots of laughs. We had 5 people at our station, with varying degrees of cooking experience. We all kept busy trying the different tasks (by far, the toughest was flipping the crepes ... so you can tell the tasks were easy). We had as much wine as we wanted when we had our dinner. The wine was house red, but it was decent and matched the food. Some of the instructions we were given verbally did not make it into the written recipes, so notes are required if you plan to make the recipes at home. We were allowed to take photos throughout the class and almost overwhelmed our instructor when all of us wanted the same photo! He ended up taking the same photo 4 times. We will probably attend a different class at this cooking school the next time we visit Florence and would recommend it to anyone who wants a fun and different evening.
