          Amazing experience!
          This cooking class was the most wonderful experience! Alexandra was a very fun and knowledgeable chef, and the beautiful backdrop of the winery for the class was unbelievable. My wife and I learned a bunch of new techniques and tips about Italian cooking, and we are so excited to try them out ourselves (although I’m sure it won’t be quite as good). We also loved how intimate the experience was - it was just us and one other couple, so we really got to be hands on for all the cooking. The food was delicious, and the Brunello wine from the vineyards we ate in front of was fantastic. 10/10 - would recommend this for everyone!

          A good-value holiday if you like to stay in the countryside instead of a hotel or B and B.
          If you want a relaxing but varied holiday in beautiful Tuscany based on a farm with modern facilities and a pool with cooking classes and visits to local towns, this is the right holiday for you. Up to 12 people can stay for either one or two weeks with most meals included. Chauffeur- driven cars with friendly drivers took us to Cortona for dinner at a different restaurant every night and classes in cheesemaking and pasta-making were included. The hostess organised transport and the daily activities into which we had input, especially when there was free time.

          A perfect way to immerse yourself into Montalcino!
          This was an incredible way to experience Montalcino! Niccolo was a fantastic guide - he answered all of our questions and was kind and respectful. The wineries were fantastic as were the historical stops and lunch! Highly recommend this experience.

          Amazing afternoon!!
          This was an absolutely incredible experience. It started with a brief but informative tour of the wine cellar and castle, and then we got to cooking! My husband and I took the class with one other couple and the chef made it such a fun afternoon. We drank Prosecco while we made our food and then enjoyed a wine pairing once everything was cooled. The views were unmatched! I’d highly recommend this experience!

          Just AMAZING !
          My husband, myself and our two grown daughters in early 20s had the most wonderful experience at these Tuscan wineries. The Tour is run beautifully and our driver was knowledgeable & professional. The first winery is a small, family owned and operated and just gorgeous in every way. It was a very personal experience being there and Niccola was exceptional. Our tastings were paired with beautiful nibbles from the region. The wines are gorgeous. The second winery is a larger venue that caters to events etc. Here we had wines paired with a traditional Tuscan lunch. The food was delicious. This is a busier places with more groups present and a dining area more like a restaurant. The drive through the Tuscan country side is breathtaking. Our brief stop for an hour in San Gimignano was very fun and the views from the top of the town are lovely and worth the trek up. At the top I caught a glimpse of "Dante Allegheri" in full period garb reciting his poetry from his time in exile. I wish we had more time in this beautiful walled town but it's worth the peek and inspired us to see more of Tuscany. We recommend this tour highly. It's worth every penny and the tour company is excellent !

          Cooking class on winery grounds with rustic view and great chef
          Alexandra had awesome personality and the pacing and view was great as advertised. We did the class with another couple but had a great time making and eating the food. Would highly recommend.

          Fun and Delicious!
          Amazing experience! Started with a brief tour then to the cooking area with a surreal view of rolling hills and grape vines. This mother and daughter team are exceptional! They Poured us glasses of the wine from the winery and off we went cooking. We made a meat dish, ravioli, pasta, and termasu from scratch and they made it fun and easy to follow. We Sat to eat all of our courses as they served us at a beautifully set table outside overlooking the Tuscan hills and valleys. One of the best experiences we had on our Italy trip! Highly recommend!

          Fantastic family cooking class!
          What a wonderful family cooking class!! We had a great time making pasta, drinking wine, eating delicious pasta with a gorgeous view of Tuscany! We have picky eaters, a food allergy and are vegetarians- they were super accommodating, which we really appreciated. We all had a great time (kids ages- 18,14 and 8 were all happy) One of our best days of our trip! Thank you!!!

          Great fun, best side trip.
          Great experience cooking overlooking a vineyard with the fabulous instructor Alessandra. We ended up being the only two in the early morning class. What a lucky treat. We took in the winery tour too. It was a great adventure.

          A Tuscan Experience Beyond Compare
          Our group of 11 had an amazing time in Tuscany; from the vineyard tours (producing both Brunello and Vino Nobile) to the Italian cooking class to the visits of Siena, Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino to the tour of a cheese farm and more, Niccolo and Alexandra of Tours of Tuscany went out of their way to make sure my wife, friends and I had a magnificent time. Their drivers were extremely knowledgeable on all things Tuscany and the surrounding regions, and offered many suggestions for activities, site seeing and restaurants for days not spent in their care. The experiences they booked for us were top notch, and the private chefs and sommelier that visited our Villa were helpful, and very accommodating of our requests. The pictures we were able to take throughout the week were breathtaking, and we commented throughout the week how we were visiting a post card. We cannot thank Tours of Tuscany enough for making our vacation so memorable, and look forward to touring with them in the future!

          VIP Treatment with a Local Tour Company.
          Niccolo and his team at Tours of Tuscany made our large group experience in Tuscany an unparalleled luxurious once in a lifetime trip. When I stumbled upon this company online a year before our trip, I had no idea that it was the best decision I would ever make in planning a week long vacation for our group of 11 friends and family. This local company pulled out all the stops, beginning with a consultation via video chat six months before the trip and recommending ideas based on the interests of our group. They personalized the tours for us and made our vacation truly stress-free. They arranged for two Mercedes minivans to transport us safely through the countryside, with drivers who were friendly, accommodating and generous with providing recommendations and insights into local life and points of interest. Everyone felt safe and well cared for. Each experience was thoughtfully planned and executed perfectly. They took us to places we wouldn't have found on our own and with VIP treatment. The cheese farm lunch and tour was a highlight of our day traveling in the Val d'Orcia, then the adorable towns of Pienza and Montepulciano.

          The highlight of our Tuscany vacation!
          Amazing! Our favorite experience during our one week stay in Tuscany. We booked the cooking class through Tours of Tuscany, a local tour company that provided above and beyond service throughout our stay. Run by a husband and wife team, the chef Alexandra is so engaging, friendly, warm, and an excellent teacher. She planned a menu that was interesting, yet appreciated by everyone with different tastes. She made the class interactive but without pressure, so we all enjoyed the experience regardless of cooking skill. Her kitchen was set in the gardens of a beautiful old old castle. The kitchen was designed to allow for two large picture windows to enjoy the view of the Tuscany landscape throughout your experience. Once your meal is ready, Alexandra serves you either inside or outside on a beautiful terrace, and provides wine pairings for each course. This experience is the one that we will be continuing to talk about with fond memories for many years.

        My mom and I took this tour starting from Cortona. I loved that they picked us up right from our hotel and dropped us off there as well- made things very easy. The drive was comfortable and views were stunning. The wine was delicious and we learned a lot about how it's made and what makes it special. I really appreciated how nice and accommodating the people running the tour were. We really had a lovely afternoon.

        The wine tour was fantastic. We were taken to 3 very different wineries and our tour guide was very knowledgeable about the area and the wineries themselves. We really enjoyed our conversations with him. Would definitely go again!

        They accepted the tour booking, took the credit card details and confirmed it, then cancelled with no good reason.

        Pretty unprofessional.

        Hi David, this review is absolutely not true!! We never took your credit card since you booked online, then it's been canceled 5 days before, and we also offered to help you with an alternate tour.. The cancellation was due to important health reasons and we also have sent you proofs with pictures on your personal phone...

        Bucolic Tuscan hilltop gem somewhat overrun by rich Americans looking for romance and excellent wines, local art events, while attempting to replicate Frances Mayes book and movie “Under the Tuscan Sun.” Well worth a visit, but it is quickly becoming a tourist Mecca only and not a true Tuscan Village experience.

        Hello, I think you are reviewing the wrong tour you are talking about CORTONA while in this tour we go to Montalcino and montepulciano … you probably wanted to review Cortona the town and you don’t realize you are in the wrong page, please cancel this review!

        Niccolo picked us up promptly, then off on a long meandering road trip to Montalcino. 1st stop, Solaris, was the best for the winery, wine and olive oil. 2nd stop was a family owned Tuscan castle-amazing views, tour, and last was the Montepulicano stop at the Etruscan museum. Wine was best at the first stop, but the tour/view/history/etc. just got better and better. Lunch could have been a separate stop somewhere else between 2 & 3, (day drinking) but still a great tour-would definitely recommend, and would see them out to go again!
