If you seek the embrace of humanity while traveling, Luisa and Ilaria offer that warm hug of food, friendship and cultural understanding. Luisa’s self-proclaimed, ‘simple meal,’ was delightful, tasty and plentiful. Ilaria’s lively conversation was fun and thought provoking. We enjoyed each others’ company fully.

It was one of the most amazing time we had in Italy! Food was awesome of course but the ladies were just fantastic! We loved hanging out with these ladies and didn't want to leave . If you are in Modena you need this class!

Excellent driver and tour guide (Paolo). We really enjoyed all parts of the tour. Great assistance from Paolo all the time. Nothing to complain about. Highly recommended.
