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 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. First we were driven through the Tuscan hills by our lovely guide Steve and taken to a villa that specialised in olive oil produce and quality Tuscan wine produce, we learnt about the processes and...

We were lucky enough to stay at their airbnb watch tower, so decided to do a cooking class while we were there. Majla and Marco are lovely hosts, and amazing cooks too. We learnt how to make Pasta from scratch and had a 3 course meal, featuring our home made pasta. Highly recommend!

Our winery and Olive Oil tour were outstanding and the most thorough I have ever taken. The wine tasting and Olive oil tasting with that wonderful bread was a real treat. Our guide Steven was fantastic and a great host. The dinner after at Maija and Marco's house in the hills was the best meal of our trip. Really enjoyed... More

Travelling with teenagers is not easy (13 and 14). We had already spent a few long days visiting museums, churches and galleries and they had reached their limit. In a last desperate bid to get away from the extreme heat and crowds, and keep us ALL equally amused, we found a cooking class with "Accidental Tourist". And what a perfect... More

We were picked up in Florence with a total of 8 people (2 families) and drove high up into the Tuscan hills. We arrived at a beautiful home and went into a room with our chef christianne. She taught us to make pasta with flour and an egg and we made spinach ravioli and fettuccine using our pasta machines. Everyone... More

I have been bringing friends and groups to the Accidental Tourist for several years and have always been very happy I did! The tour guide we had in May 2015, was Steve and he was absolutely wonderful! Learning about wine and olive oil making was just great. Also it was really nice to get out of the city and be... More

A definite must when visiting Florence! The cooking class with Steve was everything you'd hope it to be - not only will you learn how to make fresh pasta but you will have so much fun as the environment is quite relaxing with a stunning view of the hillside! Whether alone, with a friend, or family with children this is... More
