A big thank you for all the assistance provided during our stay 10-19 July. It was a wonderful experience to stay in an Agriturismo. Staff were very nice and helpful. Kids still mention Orazio, and the other animals.

What an amazing Italian experience!
What better way to experience the flavours, drinks and culture of Tuscany and Italy than through cooking. Thank you Arianna, Massimo, Leisha, Luca and Aldo.
We are ever so grateful and you are wonderful, giving people who made our experience a very positive one.

Our group booked two cooking classes with Arianna & Friends for our trip to Tuscany this summer. Our first was a four course meal, cooked at our villa. What a fantastic experience!! From the moment of their arrival, Massimo and Leisha set up our kitchen and guided us through the making of a fantastic Tuscan supper. We felt like 5 star chefs! And it tasted like it too!
Our second class was led by Luca and held at Aldo's cottage, in an unbelievable panoramic setting. Aldo's instruction in the making of pizza and cecina was fabulous and again the food absolutely delicious! I can't say enough! Both classes far exceeded our expectations and I will definitely recommend their services to all of my family and friends who may travel to Italy. I, of course, will return for another lesson myself! Thank you Arianna & Friends for an outstanding experience!

Arianna and friends(Massimo) took me and my wife to an olive and cheese tour. The tour was great and gave us some insight to how the olive and cheese production are in Tuscany. In the tour there was also included snack and lunch of high standard, and off course we tasted different varieties of olive and pegorino cheese. It was very nice. Massimo, our tour guide was very enthusiastic and had a large knowledge about the area, italian culture and lifestyle. Thanks for a nice experience.

My mother and I drove to Volterra in Tuscany to participate in Arianna and Friends cheese and olive oil tour. Our guide, Massimo was fantastic, spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable and fun. The farm was such a delight to see and the owners very welcoming. The lunch that was prepared was so good, but it was so hot, we were disappointed we did not have much of an appetite. We then drove to an olive oil factory and were assisted by a lovely lady who taught us so much about olive oil. We asked if we could purchase some items and she willingly opened the store. We wish I would have bought more, especially the lemon oil olive oil which I have used almost all of already. Thank you Massimo for the terrific day. We greatly enjoyed it and your company.
