It's totally a highlight of our trip in Italy! I've been to Toscana for several times, but never try wine tour and cooking class before. It's such a great trip that my friends and I learned a lot about wine and olive oil, and we're happy to meet up with the other couple from the states. Eating and making pasta... More

Myself and 3 of my girlfriends booked the tour after it came highly recommended to us. We had an absolutely amazing time. I think we could say it was one of the best parts of our trip in Italy. Steve was our guide and was extremely knowledgeable about the wine, olive oil, pasta making and any other questions we had!... More

Accidental Tourist came highly recommended by a friend in NC. We had the most marvelous day with Steve as our guide. We four did the wine and olive oil tour in the AM and loved how much we learned about both. Then joined a group of 3 for the afternoon cooking class. So much fun making pasta, and such a... More

Make sure to have some plastic bags and then put in the box they give you. In the afternoon we took a... More

This tour was a wonderful combination of regional history, wine & olive oil education, tastings of great wine, olive oil, as well a full dinner following the preparation of a truly homemade Italian meal. They make sure every group is very small and our guide was extremely knowledgable and personable, making the entire day very engaging. We've done many educational... More

The folks who give this "five circles" are definitely spot on...this was the highlight of our trip to Italy. We are still talking about it! In June/July, we went to Venice, Florence and Rome and I checked TA for ideas on "Things to Do" and luckily we were able to book this cooking class. Was easy to find the meeting... More

My family really enjoyed our Wine and Cooking experience. From my oldest daughter (18) to my youngest son (7) everyone could not stop talking about how much fun they had. Making our own pasta was only half the fun eating is was the other half. Our hostess was not only an excellent cook, she was warm and friendly. Our guide... More

My husband and I just returned from a trip to Italy in which we visited Florence, Rome, and Amalfi. The Accidental Tourist Wine & Cook class easily stands out as one of our absolute favorite things we did on our entire trip. Florence is an incredible city with so much to see, but the Accidental Tourist Wine & Cook added... More

This was an awesome tour that deserves its great reviews. Steve was a great guide with LOADS of information about everything. The morning and afternoon were a good balance of different activities. The highlight was definitely this amazingly cool real farm house with awesome hosts as you make pasta and they cook/season it to perfection. This is a can't miss... More

We started the day touring a beautiful family estate that makes olive oil and wine. Steve was terrific. He taught us all about making olive oil and wine. It was extremely educational. We then had an olive oil and wine tasting. We were In italy because my daughter's choir group got to sing at the Vatican. Steve told us he... More
