The Accidental Tourist was born in the spring of 1998 offering the first single-day hands-on cooking class in Tuscany. We welcome the curious and open-minded traveler in the heart of our Tuscan homes, for an authentic yet magical experience. We take a maximum of 8 people, but will go with as few as one: we never leave the solo traveler behind. We welcome families with children as we know how challenging it can be to travel with the young ones in the Old Country. AND, we charge for our tours only if our guests are happy to pay for their day with us.

My husband and I decide to try a cooking class in Tuscany. Our experience with this company exceeded our expectations. This was mainly a pasta cooking class and gave some great education on how to make your own pasta. The hosts were so friendly and welcoming into their home. We drank wine the entire time and ended with a fabulous... More

This was the highlight of our 12 day trip to Italy! We saw good reviews, we were debating because of the price, but it was completely worth it. Majla was our guide/host for the day. She was an absolute pleasure to spend the day with. She had great energy, was very nice, and informative. She had a way with words... More

My friends and I had a wonderful time with Mila, Christianne, and our two new British friends. The winery tour was beautiful, informative, and fun. We learned a lot about pasta making and ate delicious food. We have been inspired to make our own pasta now and one of us has actually made spaghetti already! Thanks for a wonderful day!

This is my 4th time bringing groups to Accidental Tourist and each time the experience gets better! Majla, Steve and Christina are pros with a love of cooking and people. I've been to other florentine cooking class venues and Accidental Tourist tops them all! Next, I'm trying out their AMAZING Tuscan hill Air B&B!!

I went on this tour 15 years ago with my teenage daughter and recently went again with my partner and my daughter again. An enjoyable day away from the rush of tourist crowds in Florence.

We spent 10 days traveling across Northern Italy and our cooking class was, without a doubt, our favorite part. My teenage daughter loved it just as much as my husband and I. Steve was our teacher and he kept us entertained throughout the afternoon. The dinner afterward was spectacular. The cooking aside, the breathtaking views over Tuscany made for wonderful... More

Take a break from the beautiful churches and amazing museums and be inspired by the natural beauty of Tuscany. Throw in some great wine and pasta you make yourself, mix in some new found friends, an amazing tour guide and you have what some might call 'Tuscan heaven'. Steve was great fun, very knowledgeable and the perfect teacher for our... More

This was our favourite thing about our holiday to Italy! We did the cooking class with Majla and Marco and loved every minute of it. The location was incredible! Amazing views, food and company. We also took part in the barter for our stay by doing some gardening and loved that experience also. The watch tower that we were fortunate... More

This is definitely not your typical tour. Experience the real Tuscan countryside on the amazing wine tour and learn about Tuscan culture. I HIGHLY recommend booking the accompanying food portion of this tour where you are welcomed into a Tuscan family home that has been standing for over 700 years to learn how to make homemade pasta, tour the grounds,...

The small winery tour followed by the cooking lesson where we made our own pasta was excellent. The beauty and the history, tied with the small group personal touch was excellent.
