Liz "I am still amazed about our first cooking class. It was in a 300 year old villa. All the original pottery owned by the family was on the walls and we ended up cooking with two fun chefs who taught us how to make bread and cheese from scratch! At the end we sat together and enjoyed the dishes we made outside with the owners with the view of the surrounding hills. A very neat experience which was m..."

    Le Marche were stunning in October, with vibrant colors seen everywhere. What made the difference was the knowledge of our guide Giovanni, so passionate and dedicated to showing our group the best of the best in food, wine and cooking. Thanks a bunch Grady and Mark, Albany, New York

    What an experience our trip was! The wineries visit were spectacular and well organized ,with only our group of 6 and our guide. We walked through the vineyards and learned how wine is produced. Being able to see the whole process and tasting the delicious final product at the end was something we will never forget and it gave us a whole new level of knowledge. We are planning to return for a longer journey next year! Grazie! Ward and Monica

    Outstanding customer service the entire week we were here. Our small group was fun and the wineries we visited were friendly and not stuffy like the ones we found in Tuscany, where over the past 10 years the service has gone down significantly... We wanted something different and we found great value in this trip. 10/10! Veronica and Francisco

    Our Epicurean tour was nothing short of amazing. Our guide came to the airport to meet us and was with us for the entire duration of our trip. People in Marche are friendly and we found the service at the hotel and the rooms to be of good size. Our suite had original frescoes on the walls which made it even more special. By far the best value we found in Italy in the past 10 years. Eva and John

    We came in all the way from Hawaii and made the right decision in choosing this tour. Our guide came to pick us up in Rome and we enjoyed the ride to Marche upon our arrival. The wineries provided a great vibe all together, each wine being deliciously paired with some home made creation prepared for us. Seriously recommend it to discover a new and stunning part of Italy!

    Our stay was nothing short of delicious! The wines we had a chance to taste were superb, the wineries were family owned and very unassuming, something we particularly appreciated. Marche offered a quiet vacation for us, away from busy areas and with stunning food and views. Certainly the best value we have found in Italy! Grazie! Jerry and Samantha

    I would say this is more than a simple cooking and wine tour. Our guide offered interesting insights each day of our week long tour. On our last day we had the incredible chance to taste vintages dating back to 1975. Our two cooking classes taught us a lot and turned out to be extremely fun as we made bread and sat around this massive wooden table for dinner. The scenery of the region gave us new picturesque views everywhere we went. I know we will return the first chance we have! Great value and care by our hosts made the trip more than a simple vacation.

    Each day started with the best cappuccino we ever tasted! There was good variety between our three classes and they turned out to be all engaging and extremely fun for our group. The genuine feeling of making pasta by hand with somebody who has been doing it for 60 years cannot be boiled down to a review. Our ingredients and accompanying wines were above and beyond our expectations. Would go back in a heart beat!!

    On the first day we saw the pressing of the grapes in the field which we appreciated significantly as we have never had the chance to be part of the actual process of making wine before. The chefs that helped us in our cooking courses were very patient and we had a ton of fun making stuffed olives from scratch! Our dinner was accompanied by the wine made the previous year which made it even more special! It does not get better than that! Thank you, Misty, Denver (Colorado)

A very neat experience which was made more special after she gave us fresh figs to bring home! We could not recommend this trip more for overall value, care by our guide, quality of the hotel and for the superb food and wine we tasted the whole week. Thank you. Liz and Mike
