We took the 2 hours food class in the Tuscan Wine School. It was fantastic. Everything we've tasted was wonderful and we've learned so many details about Tuscan food and wine. Sarah was so knowledgeable about Tuscany food and wine traditions and history. I would highly recommend do this class.

During our visit to Tuscany this past summer we had decided we wanted to educate ourselves about the wines in Tuscany. As we walked through the streets of Siena we wandered upon the Tuscan Wine School and decided to inquire as to what they had to offer. We entered the store and were greeted by Sarah. We asked about wine... More

We did both 2 hr classes in one day. The food class around Siena at lunch time, and the wine school in the evening. Very interesting and informative. Would recommend to anyone who is interested in Tuscan food and wine.

Sarah was great, personable and informative. The tasting sensational - I loved it all - the meat, cheese, coffee, gelato, oils, chocolate and honey. Nothing bad about it at all and I highly recommend doing this while in siena!!!!

There's lots of info covered and some really good wines. We had a blast! This is NOT a Wine 101 class so don't expect hand-holding through ways to classify wines that you like and don't. (That's what I was hoping for but loved what I got anyway!)

The course was very informative, yet fun and interesting. Sarah took good care of us from the beginning and took the time to sit down and talk both during and after the course. She gave some great advice on small boutiques, butcher shops and restaurants and a little bit off the map, which all was well worth the visit. Thank... More

My sister and I had a great time on the Savour Siena tour. It's an excellent way of seeing the best food destinations of the city, and the gelato was to die for!

Knowing close to nothing about wine, we thought we'd try the TWS in Siena, both as an educational experience and also a bit of fun. We got to try five wines (one white, three reds and a dessert wine). They were sensational, and our host was knowledgeable and friendly. We originally thought the price (40euro) was a little pricey, but... More

We had a great time in Siena with this activity. We wanted to visit the "real" places where locals go to get great foods. We were bang on with this activity!! Our host was great at explaining where all the products were coming from and we tasted the most wonderful cold cuts, coffee and desserts of Siena. We also tasted... More

Savor Siena was a refreshing break for our family, mixed in with all of our sightseeing. Sarah took us to little shops in Siena that we would have never experienced otherwise. She taught us about the local food and wine and got our whole family hooked on Ricciarelli. Delicious! Sarah is a delight and very knowledgeable. Our ages ranged from... More
