Learning to cook the Tuscan way was absolutely fantastic. The setting was an old farmhouse with a huge kitchen and gave an ambiance of the old farm setting from hundreds of years ago. Arianna and her assistant were so personable and so easy to get along with. We got chef hats and aprons. Their cooking instructions were simple and involved... More

I happily came across Arianna and Friends when searching for the ideal way for my daughter and myself to learn to make pasta in Italy, something we had looked forward to for years. When I contacted Arianna and Friends, Arianna herself responded and was immediately helpful. She allowed me to hone our trip's purpose by answering all of my questions.... More

He gave us insights and exposure that we never could have picked up on our own. We visited a wonderful farm involved in Pecorino cheese making, had... More

Just wanted to say that we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Massimo and Moira were great tour guides and I wish we had more time in the region to do more activities. Spent the day visiting a few historical villages, had lunch at an organic cheese farm, and toured a winery and olive oil mill. All of us, even the children... More

I highly recommend Arianna & Friends. Our day-long vespa tour was one of the highlights of our time in Italy. Our guide, Massimo, was knowledgeable and fun, and we felt comfortable and safe at all times. This is the only way to see Tuscany and to enjoy the delights it has to offer. We learned history, sampled olive oil, wine... More
