Must do!

I had an amazing experience and met other friendly travelers during this class. Giuseppe and his sous chefs provided great instructions while also making us laugh the entire class! Plenty of jokes and carbs the whole class! I only wish they had a whole day class so I could try making all the different types of dough.

Once in a lifetime experience!

I underestimated how much fun and value this kinda experience can add to my trip. Me and my girlfriend were amazed by the effort and joyfulness of the participants, including the travelers, but foremost le chefs. To Merzad, Ehsiano & Giuseppe (Our chefs): Mashalla & Merci ✌️

AMAZING! Book now!

This experience was AMAZING and worth every penny. Pasqua (our tour guide) was knowledgeable and personable, and knew the city and its sights inside and out. We learned a lot of information throughout the tour that would have been impossible to do on our own. Book this, you won't regret it!

Fantastic Vatican tour!

Our guide (Eva) for the tour was very good. She knew her stuff. No matter what you threw at her she would an answer for! she had patience and empathy for everyone’s individual needs. But more importantly, she took her time to point out and explain specific details on important artworks that otherwise went unnoticed!!! You’re the best!

Vatican small group tour was spectacular!

Eva was a spectacular guide. She was funny, knowledgeable was able to answer any question. We would recommend her to anyone who would like to view the sites of Rome. She made our tour of the Vatican truly memorable.

Great visit!

Great tour of the Vatican by Luigi. Enjoyed understanding the history behind the Vatican and St. Peter’s Basillica!!! We were able to have a private tour of the hall of mask’s and the regular tour. Would do it again. Great experience.
