I wasn't sure how a "walking tour" and a cooking class relate???
The cooking class is in an area of Rome that has great history... but at the end of the walk (1 1/2 hours) I was hot and tired...and still needed to cook! If the walk went through a grocery /produce market, I would connect the tour better.
Our cooking instructor was great! We made 2 pastas. I would have loved to see how they made the sauces and get recipes for what we enjoyed at lunch. I would have loved to have gotten a dessert to make and a little bit more actual cooking. It was (however) a very delightful afternoon and the people that gave the course were so open and fun.
The champagne tour was quite organized and lovely. Our day was picture perfect. We had 3 wineries to visit. In my perfect world...a good,comprehensive tour of one winery is sufficient. We had 3 comprehensive tours...
The lunch was amazing! Not because of anything except that it was in a small champagne manufacturers home and was to lovely intimate. It was a wonderful day. Many thanks
We kept trying to show our papers and the bus drivers said "that they did not go to MonteMarte and that our papers said the "red bus" . Both bus lines kept sending us back and forth to each other... and nobody was willing to help us get the problem taken care of. We finally go a partial ride on the Red bus (which had narrative) and then told that we needed to go on the Open hop on-hop off tour (who would not accept our paperwork) they allowed us on for a partial tour at the end of our 2nd day attempting to get on the system. The audio said NOTHING! It was hokey french music with no narrative as to what we were seeing. This system was a total bust for us!
