The class demonstration was excellent and fun. Be carefu though when booking the activity as the address provided on the booking invoice from Viator is NOT where the cooking demonstration is located. We walked in circles trying to find our meeting point which was evidently described in a separate email notification which we must have missed. So unless it is absolutely clear where the pickup point is, I would avoid this class altogether.
This was so much fun. Simone was wonderful and we enjoyed all the company.
Our cooking class with Simone' was enormous fun. He was skillful, thoughtful, instructive and entertaining. The food was delicious and we can't wait to try our new skills at home
This didn't start out great. I was sent the wrong address and had to hustle to the pickup zone near Plaza Gramschi. Then my driver appeared and I hopped into a nice Mercedes for a ride to the Casa Frassia - about 20 minutes outside of Siena. Where in the heck were we going? Once I arrived, however, the chef, Simone, bag an to explain and had me start helping with food prep. Turned out there were only two of us in the cooking class and we did everything! It was a great experience. My only suggestion would be for Viator and the Company running the Tuscan Cooking class to make sure the location is correct in the email voucher confirmation.
As fit turned out, my wife and I were the only two participants in this class and thankfully it was not cancelled for that small number. With the one on one experience, we were able to prepare a delicious meal with the close guidance of our chef. We definitely learned new techniques and enjoyed the results of our efforts on the terrace above the restaurant. An enjoyable time, even with the three of us.
This cooking class was fun and informative. Small numbers meant everyone got to be involved with food prep and the meal was delicious. Lots of good tips and tricks for fail safe recipes to be reproduced at home.
So much fun! Excellent instruction - very funny hosts - casual and engaging. We had a great time!
This was a brilliant tour. We had so much fun and learned so much about Italian cooking. Our Chef was amazing! Julio was very passionate about his cooking and this definitely rubbed off on us. He was funny, engaging and clearly loves to teach others. We highly recommend this tour as it was certainly a highlight of our trip! You will not be disappointed :
Great class! Our chef was patient, funny and had the ability to make even beginners feel comfortable. The food that we made together was delicious. I can't wait to try it at home. This class was one of the high points of our trip.

This was a highlight of our trip to Italy. It was a nice break from all the sightseeing where we were experiencing to get into doing. The class size was perfect 8 people- 4 men/4 women, the chef/teachers were authentic one only spoke Italian! and warm. The 4-course meal we learned to cook was delicious. I got lots of practical tips and aha, that's how they do its. And sitting down and eating our food was delightful. Everyone in the class had a chance to prepare multiple parts of the meal and everyone pitched in to serve the meal. Cooking together is a fun activity and I'm really glad we did this! I would recommend this to anyone/everyone!
