What a fantastic tour we had! We chose the tour of Lari, including a castle, a butcher, and the Martelli pasta factory. Massimo had surprises for us around every corner and he share knowledge that we would never have learned without his guidance. We will definitely take another tour with Arianna & Friends! Thanks you so much for giving us... More

This was our best experience ever, as far as organized activities go. We took a cooking course and had our own Italian chef teaching us. Arianna was helpful when we lacked words, but most of it went just fine in Italian. Great location and great food. Best og all: The fun!

Would definitely recommend Arianna & Friends for help with travel and entertainment arrangements. They delivered above expectations. Tuscan farm for rest and relaxation, cooking lessons with Italian grandmother, horseback riding in the Tuscan hills. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, answered our many questions before and during our trip. We enjoyed the Tuscan part of our trip to Italy the... More

The highlight of our trip to Tuscany was the "Pasta Lab" class provided by Arianne and Friends. Our small group went to a farmhouse near Peccioli, and Carla taught us all how to make four different pastas and the sauces to go with each. It was a truly wonderful and authentic experience. Luca, our tour guide, was fun loving and... More

I really am happy we went with Arianna & Friends. We had Massimo as our tour guide and he was so much fun! He answered all our questions and knew so much. We went on their cheese farm and olive oil tour that included lunch. It was informative and interesting. I also loved the lunch at the farm. It was... More

We had a perfect evening on the farm making Pizza! We enjoyed every minute of this experience and will cherish this memory for years to come! Massimo was a great guide and host! I will never make Pizza without thinking of our teacher Ester! Many thanks for this special night- we will meet up again!

We did the pasta making class... It was very good and we had a lot of fun.. We learned a lot and the teacher was very nice and cooperative. The olive oil tasting was very interesting and gave us a new perspective about olive oil.

Being a young local olive oil and wine producer himself, his knowledge of Tuscan agricultural culture, tradition, process and methods was excellent. And his passion for this... More
