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 wife and I took our two daughters (22 & 24) on the winery tour and the cooking class and had a wonderful time. We tasted several local wines with olive oil and bread and then moved on to a nearby villa where we made ravioli and a couple of other dishes while the cook prepared several other side dishes....

This experience has exposed my want to make my own pasta at home. The Herbs were wonderful in the many dishes that we ate. The dessert was smooth and you savor each spoonful slowly. This location deserves more then just five stars. A toast to this experience and I welcome all who want to see the country side of Florence... More

If you want something non touristy and very authentic, then I suggest booking the Wine and cooking tour with Accidental tourist, gets you out of the hustle and bustle of Florence with a great wine tasting experience and a cooking class with great authenticity and character. Majla is very accommodating and informative as a host. Cooking deep in the Tuscan... More

Everyone visiting Florence needs to sign up for the Cooking Class. I also enjoyed the Wine Tour! The scenery is stunning, and the staff could not be more friendly. A very unique, immersive, and authentic Italian experience!

Our family of 4 agreed it was our best experience while in Italy. There is nothing like learning about a region than through the eyes, words and foods of the locals and Majla and Marco made this an incredible day for us all. We did both the wine and cooking tour, which I highly recommend. Even our 13 year old... More

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.
