Small regional tour operator specializing in very original and experiencial tours to the rural Tuscany. Our aim is to bring visitors of Tuscany to the best food producers of wine, cheese, olive oil, honey, chocolate, pasta, grains and any local specialty. We only arrange customized tours for individuals and small groups.

We are famous for our truffle hunting tours in the woods near San Miniato and in 2014 we launched very exclusive foodie tours on Vespa scotters!EXPERIENCE WINE & FOOD IN TUSCANY WITH US!

Our lives are busy. Planning a trip for us is finding open dates to go. I don't have time to R&D every last detail. But Luca did because he grew up and lives in Tuscany. Wine, Olives, Truffles, Vespa's or walking we learned and enjoyed a simpler life of family business designed to make their Italian meats the best, or... More

We had a great day with our tour guide Luca, he really made us feel like we were long time friends from the start. Along with his easy manner he was a wealth of information. The Pasta Factory was very interesting as was the tour of the Lari castle but Luca's knowledge and insights were the real highlights of the... More

First we went to the olive oil Mill where he showed us how the olive oil is produced and He told us everything about how to make olive oil and everything around it, in a passionate way and with a lot of knowledge. Afterwards we went to... More

3 tours with Arianna - Olive oil and cheese farm with Arianna and Vinci tour and Pasta Lab with Massimo. The tours were great, well organized and worth the euros. We enjoyed each tour which was as much about the locations as the guides. This is a very well run small company and would use them again. They know the... More

Our group of nine did the olive oil and pecorino cheese tour with Massimo. We all (both kids and adults) enjoyed learning about how these products are made and visiting the farms. The lunch meal prepared for us was my boys' favorite meal of the trip. I believe the description was a "tasting", but we had a huge meal complete... More

Arianna responded very timely to our request to book tours. She also answered any questions we had, promptly. We booked a tour of olive pressing, cheese making and a pasta making course for ourselves and 12 year old granddaughter. Our guides Luca and Veronica spoke English very well. We learned so much on both courses making our Tuscan visit very... More

We are a group of 4 families from the US (8 adults and 7 children) with little or no knowledge of the Tuscan region. We had engaged Arianna and Friends to help us plan our stay in Tuscany. Arianna and I exchanged several emails, in which she offered her insights on the trips we could take, constantly tweaking it based... More

We spent a beautiful day today with Arianna touring the olive farm and mill. We learned so much about the process of making olive oil and how it gets to our table. We concluded the day with a beautiful abundant meal and tasting. Arianna did such a great job of keep my three children engaged and interested. This was an... More

I have the absolute pleasure to give Arianna the best possible review for coordinating our stay at Agriturismo Il Selvino, hosting a private cooking class, and scheduling a wine and olive oil tasting at the nearby Il Fibbiano winery. As other guests have noted of the cooking class, learning how to make pasta from scratch and eating the strawberry tiramisu... More

Had a wonderful time at the Tuscan Kitchen cooking class in a beautiful farmhouse that Arianna and Friends sponsored. Great instruction and the best veal stew I've ever made or eaten. We learned to make a wonderful strawberry tiramisu, which I prepared for my husband's 65th birthday party and the guests toasted the dessert. I highly recommend the class.
