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.

We found this by chance when researching our honeymoon, and so glad we did! Maja was great the whole day, very friendly and knowledgeable. We had a great day learning to make pasta then sampling some local wine and oil. Without doubt one of the best days of our honeymoon! Thank you Maja for making it so special!

Very good day. We was picked up just outside of Florence (walking distance from main square). 20 Minute drive in a good car to a fantastic country house where we made a pasta fro scratch then a very good lunch. Both me and my wife then went on to a olive oil and wine tasting place on our own. Was... More

This was a very enjoyable family activity for my sons ages 19, 22 and 26. We first made pasta and then enjoyed wine with a delicious lunch. It was a wonderful Italian experience.

My girlfriend and I did the "Wine and Cook" day-trip in Chianti and could not have had a better experience. Our tour guide, Majla, was outstanding (and just a really cool person to hang out with. The groups are limited to 12 people, so it is an intimate day of cooking, eating and drinking. We were picked up by Majla... More

My husband and I first found accidental tourist 15 years ago. We spent the most amazing memorable day back then and were anxious to bring our two kids 14 and 8 on this summers trip to Florence. We had very high expectations as our first visit was so wonderful, and our experience this time exceeded our expectations! Everything from the... More

My family and I (Wife, 8 year old son, 14 year old daughter) took the cooking class. We were picked up and whisked off to the Tuscany Hills and taught how to make pasta, and ravioli by hand. Our hosts were lovely people, clearly doing something they love. After this we sat in a 1000 year old home over looking... More

We were chauffeured to the Florence Tuscany in about 30 minutes to a beautiful farm house. You are with a small group of other tourists where you learn how to make pasta while drinking wine! My wife and I had a blast. It's a fun hands on experience and you learn the right way to Make fresh pasta. Afterwards you... More

My family and I had an amazing day in Tuscany. The winery and olive oil tour was fantastic. We also did a pasta making class, which all of my family loved. Eating the pasta and the delicious food that was prepared for us after was something we will not forget. Especially that cheesecake! Steve was an amazing host. We were... More

We took a day tour with Accidental Tourist while we were in Florence and it was one of the best days of our European adventure.
