I would highly recommend this to anyone who loves good food, seeing markets from a local's perspective and learning how to properly cook - the Italian way! Our chef was Tomaso and he was simply an expert of his craft, has cooked his way through Europe and is so personable, you are bound to enjoy this experience with him

We enjoyed the electric cart tour through Florence. We were able to visit some locations that might have been difficult for us to access on foot, so we appreciate the experience. Our driver, Simon was very friendly and provided so much interesting information on our tour.

My family (2 adults + 11y/o) enjoyed the hike immensely followed by a yummy gelato. Ado and Chris were really engaging and fun. We missed seeing Monterroso as the train from La Spezia was delayed.

Thank you! The tour was easy to follow and the guide was knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend allotting more time than the tour if you want to do the climbing because it will take some time!

Great day out. Our host Angela was brilliant. Nando the driver was fantastic. We also had a great local guide in Siena called Donatella. Definitely recommend.
