I went on the cheese tour with a lovely American couple. We had the best time! Sara was such a good hostess, informative and full of knowledge. We went on a tour of the factory and had a tasteful lunch afterwards with some local wine! We learned all about the process and how this family business has been run since the first day! A must if in the area of Sorrento!

Took 2 days to sort out the visit and even on the day things did not go to plan but sara was very accommodating and we go there. Sarah is very enthusiastic about the cheese making process. We learnt so much about the process down to the more detailed level as we came from a farm so got quite technical but Sara made sure the rest of the group understood.The cheese tasting was great. The only downside not being able to make our own because the factory was in full flow. This is a good tour for those who love their food and want to know how it comes to your plate. A brilliant 1 hour.

Sara, who is a member of the Michelangelo Cheese family, was our guide that included the cheese-making process, a stop at a small family-owned Limoncello factory, and last, but not least, we made pizza from scratch at an excellent pizza cafe. Of the many tours we did while traveling, this tour immersed us in to the every-day life of the people of Southern Italy. A must-do if you want to feel like you are part of the Italian culture. An Added Bonus: Sara is a delight as a guide!

My husband and I went to this tour the first day of our honeymoon and we loved it! Sara was our tour guide and she was amazing, she took us to where they make all their cheeses and explained everything. She was extremely knowledgable and made it super fun! We got to try about 6 different cheeses and got some local wine too! Great experience, highly recommend! Sara is great!

The tour is short and sweet, but the overall experience (especially trying the cheese afterwards) is absolutely worth it!! THE CHEESE IS SO GOOD!!! Additionally, the cheese factory is centrally located so it's easy to plan without taking a large chunk out of your day. Scheduling took a couple of attempts because no one responded to my first email requesting to reserve, and alternative dates/times were suggested after my second email--I think it was more of a miscommunication than anything else because we were able to go the date/time that we initially wanted. Just be forewarned if you are flying through France afterwards: you cannot take any cheese you buy from here on the plane with you. Nice airport security took this delicious smoked mozzarella from me and refused to explain why I couldn't take the cheese with me out of the country (traveling within the EU) when I had brought it into the country with me just 2 days prior. Thankfully, there was absolutely no problem taking the cheese out of Italy with me.
