      Disappointing experience
      We signed up for a pasta making class at a Tuscan farmhouse, but what we got did not match our expectations. The class was held at a large bed and breakfast rather than a farm house. The instructor barely spoke English and did not give clear or detailed instructions, and if it weren’t for another pasta class that we had taken earlier in the trip, we would not have known what to do. The instructor also disappeared for 20 minutes halfway through the class to check a guest into the bed and breakfast and show them to their room. Finally, the instructor appears to have served some of the ravioli and tomato sauce that the class made to a couple of restaurant guests that sat down next to us at dinner when we were eating the food we cooked. My friends and I were disappointed and uncomfortable with this experience, particularly given how much we had paid for it.

      Excellent 6-hour winery tour with guide and driver
      My wife and I took the 6-hour "Wine lovers experience in Montepulciano" a couple of days ago. It started at 10:30 AM. We got picked up by our guide (Diana) and our driver in Piazza Grande in Montepulciano. We visited three very different wineries (small one, medium size one, and a larger one). At each winery we got a tour of the vineyard, the cellar, and tasted several wines. At two of the wineries, the winer maker was our host. The host at the third winery was an extremely knowledgeable staff member. We had a fantastic lunch at the 2nd winery. We returned to Montepulciano at 4:30 PM. An excellent experience.

      A memorable experience
      We learned a lot, made amazing pasta and really enjoyed the view on the beautiful agriturismo! The contact with the agency was also very clear and professional.

      Favorite Experience in Tuscany
      We took the cooking class at Le Stringaie with Daniel as host and cook. The farmhouse was authentic, with meals prepared using fresh from the land ingredients. We made bruschetta and pici with tomato sauce. Daniel was very hospitable and you could tell he had such passion for flavors and ingredients. Definitely an experience we would recommend!

      Best cooking class
      The class was small and personal. The woman leading was so helpful, we not only thoroughly enjoyed the class, but learned and enjoyed great food when finished. I would so do this again!!

      This tour is okay
      If we hadn’t already participated in a different Food Tour, we may have been more pleased with this one. Our guide was a lovely woman, who had a very good knowledge of the city, but her English(while MUCH better than our Italian) frequently had us searching for the right words for the tour. The first winery we went to, only gave us a sip of the wines, as compared to the half or full glass we received everywhere else. The tasting for the Riserve and Nobile wines at another winery, were quite nice. We finished with a lunch at a restaurant with a wonderful view of the countryside. We were a little surprised that our guide left us at the door of this restaurant, unlike other tours that stayed with us for the entirety of the tour. We felt that this tour was too expensive for what it delivered.

      Pasta ❤️
      Fun small class with local cooks who shared their expertise in making 3 types of pasta. After the class we were able to enjoy a complete meal of all 3 dishes & a nice wine pairing. Setting was beautiful.

      Leisurely private 3 hour tour
      We enjoyed our time with our guide Laura. As we walked she gave us a short history of the town and pointed out architectural details. We went to two winery shops, wine cellar and ended our tour at a restaurant for lunch. We preferred our second wine tasting because the host wasn’t as rushed plus they served cheese and meats to taste. However, Laura was the highlight of the tour. We learned many facts about Montepulciano and the region from her. The reason we gave four stars was the price seemed a little high. All in all a pleasant few hours.

      unauthentic experience and totally underwhelming
      spent £450 for 6 adults to have an authentic pizza making evening - quite a lot I hear you say. well, indeed it was. We made pizza margarita and were offered only dried oregano and packet passata - we were expecting fresh ingredients. we were not allowed to make anything more exotic and requests to add meat, mushrooms etc were declined by the host. the pizzas were cooked in an electric oven rather than an authentic pizza oven and only 2 pizzas could be cooked every 15 mins which meant we waited 45 mins before all 6 pizzas were cooked. We all thought £450 for 6 pizzas and a few bottles of wine was OTT, especially as the whole experience was underwhelming. I have complained to the agent who took our money but they declined to given any sort of compensation for what was a v disappointing evening. i am writing this so others don't fall into the same trap as us.

      Delicious pasta!
      My group had a great time rolling pasta with a super fun host, and a gorgeous setting. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

      Montepulciano winery tour
      It was a great experience. The owners and staff were very friendly and knowledgeable. They took the time to make us feel special and gave us a true Tuscan experience. We would love to go back! And the wine was delicious.

      A Must Do
      After one week in Italy this was by far the best park. The experience was incredible led by two great women who made us feel at home as we made 3 different types of pastas, sat down for an amazing lunch with incredible homemade wine. If you're heading to Montepulciano this is a must do.
