What people are saying about Milan

We had a fabulous time. At first we thought 5 hours was going to be too much but it was perfect. The activities were timed out just right. Our chef was amazing. He was very interesting and personable. I cant wait to recommend this to all of our friends.

Both Chefs were very knowledgeable and even more nice and helpful. They are patient with those who know nothing and can answer questions if you’ve made pizza dozens of times.

We had some extra time in Milan, so we chose to see the vineyard. The villa is amazing to walk through and the grounds are beautiful. The audio is very informative.

We had an evening tour in Brera/ Milan. The guide introduced the Italian food culture. Guide was excellent,delicious food and great company.
