Excellent tour. It was a private tour, and we could move along at our own pace. Bel was our driver and guide. Extremely helpful, very knowledgable. Take a private tour if you can. It is worth every cent we paid for. So much so that we cancelled one of those big group tours, and had Bel again to bring us to Cinque Terre. Once again, she did not fail us. Thank you for a wonderful experience!

Wonderful experience, definitely recommend. I think our chef/instructor’s name is Katerina, she was wonderful, and explained thoroughly each process. We learned a few tricks, made three different kinds of pastas and sauces, and a delicious panna cotta too. So much fun!

The chef and her instructions were excellent … the group pairings of 7 people were great for meeting others and cooking the meal together .. The finished product that we made and was served was OUTSTANDING!!! Definitely a must do tour in Florence !!!

Great tour with a wonderful guide. The drive there and back was long but the overall experience was very good.

Highly recommend. Had a great time. Met some great people also.
