The Accidental Tourist was born in the spring of 1998 offering the first single-day hands-on cooking class in Tuscany. We welcome the curious and open-minded traveler in the heart of our Tuscan homes, for an authentic yet magical experience. We take a maximum of 8 people, but will go with as few as one: we never leave the solo traveler behind. We welcome families with children as we know how challenging it can be to travel with the young ones in the Old Country. AND, we charge for our tours only if our guests are happy to pay for their day with us.

I found this tour to be a welcome break from the busy city. My tour guide met me in Florence and we drove out to the private vineyard where we toured the grounds and the areas where the olives and grapes are processed. After the tour of the winery and the olive oil production areas, we had an olive oil... More

This experience was the highlight of my Italian trip for me. Our host (Majla) was amazing as this proved to be a cultural exchange rather than your usual tours. Great food, good company, beautiful views. I would definitely recommend this tour whether travel in a group or solo.

This was probably our favorite day in Italy. There were only three of us and we were picked up right in Florence. The drive out to the countryside was gorgeous and chatting with Majla regarding Italian customs and her family's traditions was priceless. We love getting to know other people and hearing their stories while travelling. Originally we were signed... More

We did the accidental Tourist tour with wine tasting in the morning and pasta making in the afternoon. What a wonderful day! we had a tour of a vinyard with info on olive oil and wine. Tasted both. The large group split into small groups- we were taken to a private home in Tuscany. The cellar was converted to a... More

We were travelling through Italy via train with my two 13 year olds, my husband and my mom. This was by far one of the biggest highlights of our travels. We started with the wine and olive oil tasting then on to make pasta. Our kids loved everything about this trip as did the rest of us. I highly recommend... More

My wife, daughter and I really loved this tour. We did the wine and cook. Steve our host was excellent in terms of knowledge, enthusiasm and talent and just a nice guy to be around for the day. Small groups, lots of personal attention. We learned a ton about olive oil production, drank some great wine and had an excellent... More

Don't miss this incredible opportunity while in Florence, Italy to be hosted by Majla and Marco at Accidental Tourist. The Wine and Cook class was recommended by friends who visited Florence several years ago. We were pleasantly surprised with our day in the Tuscany countryside visiting first the Fattoria De Grignano for a vineyard tour of winemaking and olive harvesting.... More

My friend and I were traveling around Italy, staying mostly in cities, and were very glad we had booked this trip to the Tuscan countryside, for a fun day of touring an old estate which produces olive oil and wine, and a delicious tasting afterwards. Our guide, Steve, was fun and knowledgeable, and blew our socks off when after the... More

My wife and I found Steve and then Majla and Marko very pleasant and enjoyed every moment of the wine and cook tour! The food was delicious, the views were amazing and the villa with olive oil and wine tasting was splendid. If you're thinking about doing this, definitely do it.

Steve picked us up and gave us a wonderful commentary on the beautiful Tuscany area we were driving through. The olive oil and wine tasting following the tour of the processes for both was done very tastefully with lots of atmosphere. Then back into the van we went to a private home where we were given a hands on lesson... More
