I was travelling in Italy with my 9 year old son and this was one of the highlights of our trip. The instructors were helpful and entertaining and they made a point to include everyone. We were in a class of about 20 people (including about 7-8 children) and each person had his own work station. First the chef demonstrated and explained the techniques very clearly as we watched and then walked around as we followed his steps. There were 2 instructors - one did the pizza instruction and the other did the gelato instruction. They both helped during the "hands-on" part. Each person made a pizza but the gelato was a whole group demonstration since it has to be made in a larger batch. After the "work" was done we ate together and got to know each other a little. It was an informal atmosphere and an enjoyable evening.

This was a really fun evening. I was a solo traveler and my fellow attendees made this a great evening. Learning about the pizza and gelato was great too. The presenters were fun and easy to talk to.

We had such a fun time creating our pizzas and learning what good gelato should look and taste like ! Everything we needed was supplied. The instructors were both helpful and hilarious. The best part was getting to know our "classmates" from around the world. It was one of the highlights of our trip. We would recommend this experience to anyone traveling to Florence who is looking for a hands-on experience with their family.

My daughters and I enjoyed a delightful time making pizza, and viewing the preparation of gelato, for dinner in Florence. Definitely one of the hi-lites of our Italy vacation! Our chef was knowledgeable, entertaining, and ensured everyone enjoyed the experience. He confidently predicted at the start of the evening that this would be the best pizza, and gelato, we had tasted and afterwards everyone was in agreement. I am glad I booked this tour and am already looking forward to a future Viator experience! Thank you for a wonderful and unforgettable evening in Florence!

My sister and I sent our teenagers on this tour without us and they loved it! Florence is an easy city to walk around and they were able to go out on their own and do something fun. They said the class was a ton of fun, and they all got certificates of completion! The instructors were funny. The kids loved it. The pizza was very good, and they didn't make gelato, they watched it being made and ate it.

It was more "learn how to make pizza and see how someone makes gelato using a professional machine", but I was in it mainly for the pizza, so I didn't mind. There were about 20 of us (mainly Americans) and the class took place in a professional kitchen. We started out with the pizza, making the base from scratch. The instructors were charming and funny, and they also knew their stuff. They were actually pretty serious about making sure we ended up with a proper pizza! Very clear, easy to follow instructions. One of the instructors then mixed the ingredients for a gelato (with the help of some of the younger students) and stuck it in the ice cream machine so it'd be ready for later. When the pizzas were ready, we each eat our own and then had some gelato. There was plenty of wine available while we cooked and while we eat our food. Great experience, all in all, and I'd recommend it.

Loved this! We got to make our own pizza but not the gelato. We did learn how to make the gelato and tried the finished product after they made it for everyone. I plan to make this type of pizza for some guests this weekend.

Amazing cooking class. Shown exactly how to make a proper Pizza and Chocolate Gelato. The chefs were really helpful and great fun. Plenty of wine which was a bonus. If we had a chance we would definitely do it again and recommend it.

Our 2 teenagers 16yr and 18yr did this tour. It was a small group of 8-10. They thoroughly enjoyed making and eating the pizzas and gelato. They catered for our vegetarian teenager. Would definitely recommend this tour.
