Any organization can provide tours, but what makes the tour a memorable experience and something you will never forget is the type of host or tour guide you get that is conducting the tour. This was the case with the Pizza and Gelato Cooking Class in Tuscan Farmhouse from Florence by Walkabout Florence Tours. Cris, Thomas, and Tiziano were the reason why this tour became a fun, learning, and unforgettable experience. Their passion and energy were so infectious that we will be talking about it for a very long time and refer this tour, along with the hosts to our friends that may be going to Florence. The Walkabout Florence Tours are very lucky to have the trio and I highly recommend that if you are booking this tour, ask for these trio. They are simply the best. We actually took another tour called Cinque Terre Day Trip from Florence with optional Hiking Tour also by Walkabout tour and we couldn’t believe how lucky we got Cris as our tour guide. He is the walking Encyclopedia of Italy. Everything you want to know about Italy from sightseeing to best food or restaurants, he knows it. Again, this tour is a 5 star rating. Don’t miss this tour when visiting or travelling to Florence. You wont regret it.

One of the best nights of my life!!! I did this as it was built into the predetermined itinerary on a group trip through Wanderrock Travel. While it is something that I probably would not have done otherwise, it turned out to be one of my absolute favorite parts of the trip! This is an absolute must do for anyone visiting Florence. Started off with some bread and a walk through the garden. From there, the making of the gelato and pizza were real fun. The instructors were very nice, hilarious and understanding of mistakes. They were all very polite when I asked questions (even after they had literally just demonstrated how to do it) and the experience is very welcoming to anyone who does not know much about cooking. They made it enjoyable and simple. The best part of the night came after finishing cooking while waiting for the pizza in the oven and gelato to finish freezing. During this time, I admired one of the best views ever with the sun setting on Florence in such a peaceful atmosphere! Is one of the most beautiful places ever. There was a feeling of magic in the air. Literally one of the best nights of my life! The pizza and gelato was amazing! So many great gelato flavors (lemon, strawberry, pistachio, hazelnut, etc.) When the gelato was served, all the flavors were at the same table so you could literally take one scoop of each flavor and admire all of them. The instructors gave us diplomas at the end and had a nice chance to interact with them!

This was the best part of our trip in Florence. Just a short bus ride to the beautiful farm we spent 5 unforgettable hours there, learning how to make authentic pizza and gelato. we learn the basic technics of making Gelato with various flavors, and we got to try each other's products at the end, which was very fun. Cris, the gelato master, also teaches us tips on the best combination of different condiments and Gelato flavors. For instance, balsamic vinegar + strawberry flavor, Basil + cucumber flavor... it was fantastic.
When it came to pizza, we had two pizza masters Aria and Thomas were great. They were funny, patient, and knowledgeable. I'd never imagined I could make restaurant-quality pizza but I did it with their help. :) I came home and tried again and it worked!
The farm was beautiful with a great sunset view. I highly recommend this experience to anyone who wants to spend 1/2 day away from the busy city center and do something really fun.

Highlight of our Florence trip - highly recommend

We had the most amazing pizza and gelato making course up in this farmhouse with breathtaking views of all of Florence. Max was wonderful at teaching us how to make gelato. He took us on a tour of the gardens first where the company grows lovely vegetables, and then walked us through the basic principles of an Italian gelato. He was so passionate about the craft and his enthusiasm was infectious. The gelatos were delicious - I loved them all and we got to try everyone’s at the end.

We had a wonderful pizza making lesson with Thomas and Tiziano. Thomas was so funny and very engaging. The instructions were very clear and inspired a love of not only pizza but pizza-making in the whole group. They were very generous with all the pizza toppings and took time to teach us all in small groups the steps of pizza rolling and flipping. The pizzas we made were easily the best pizzas I’ve ever eaten.

This pizza/gelato making experience was magical. Everything about the course was something I will remember forever. The staff was super friendly and nothing was too much for them. The pick up from Florence was super easy as well and the journey was no more than 10 mins.

Thank you so so much Max, Thomas and Tiziano for providing such a memorable, wholesome experience for me and my friends. I loved this course so much and would recommend to anyone visiting Florence.

Can't recommend this cooking class enough; most enjoyable activity we have done on many trips to Italy. (Of course we had great weather) We had Angega, Aru and Thomas (if I can read the printing) as instructors and they were great. We did the 1st class that starts at 2:30pm and finishes around sunset. This was September so it was starting to get chilly. Suggest getting a class that ends no later than sunset to enjoy the views from the farm house. The only negative is the class size; we filled to capacity the mid-sized bus used to transport between Florence and the farm house. I think it was 28-29 people. You just need to "advocate for yourself" to make sure you get a work station, etc. Would have preferred (and paid more) for a smaller class but the instructors accommodated everyone.

This experience is a must! Our group (4 couples) did the Pizza and Gelato Cooking Class at a Tuscan Farmhouse from Florence. This checked so many boxes for us...beautiful countryside views, amazing food, wonderful hosts/hostesses! Pickup from downtown Florence went just as it said, picked up on time by bus and in about 10-15 min we were arriving at our destination overlooking the beautiful Tuscan countryside. We were greeted by friendly hosts and there was wine waiting for us upon arrival! This is a well organized experience and was a highlight for us all. We went on Dec. 7th and want to give a shout out to Max, "boss" and "assistant" who gave an amazing, fun and interactive experience. I can't recommend this experience enough, don't hesitate to book it! You'll love every minute of it!

Extremely well organized; never felt rushed or left out; all three presenters were great at remembering names and each had a good sense of humour, making the afternoon fun. they give a genuine class - you will learn things. I already make pretty decent pizza, but I picked up new things from them. All over it was a fun afternoon; the pace was quick; there was always something happening; you felt like it was great value for the money. the facilities were well kept, pretty and clean. I never felt pressured into buying anything. Strongly recommend this activity - it makes a great breather from all the churches and museums (however nice they are!).

Traveling finally, after covid, had been a blessing and a privilege. I didn't think anything could make my honeymoon any better for my wife and I until we did two Tours with Walkabout, the Pizza & Gelato class and the full day Cinque Terre tour.

Gloria, Luigi, Thomas, thank you so very very much for not only educating us through the pizza and Gelato class but for also helping facilitate such a fun and interactive time between all of the participants. You brought out the best in all the people attending and made this a BEYOND memorable experience. You're knowledge, customer service, and passion for your craft flows through you so naturally and joyfully that we will now proceed to judge not just all other tour guides but also other Italians against the bar that you have set.

The autonomy of the the day trip led by Chris was a breath of fresh air from the typical guided tours. Your team has really hit the lottery with how you've managed to put together such a great tour whilst also allowing the amount of freedom we had. More than that was how impressively Chris and Aldo managed to keep the entire group of 65 people coordinated and organized and on schedule. Truly impressive and only possible if you really know what you're doing.

If you're considering booking anything with WalkAboutTours, do not hesitate. If the other guides are anything like Gloria, Luigi, Thomas, Chris or Aldo, you will have a memorable experience and be glad you trusted this review!

Thank you again for making our honeymoon so memorable.

Your friends from Vancouver, Canada

One of the highlights of our trip to Italy and THE highlight of our trip to Florence. It was a fun activity...engaging and interactive. Aria, Tiziano, and Max were a well oiled machine bringing humor, knowledge and joy to the experience. We felt welcomed, would do it again, and we highly recommend it for U.S. travelers. Family friendly, couple friendly, LGBTQ friendly. Grazie mille!!!

This class was top of our list of best activities during our 7 days in Florence! It was more than just the pizza and gelato making (which was fantastic and high quality) it was the entire experience from the people to the setting. The farmhouse, kitchen and outdoor patio were really something to experience and just be relaxed enjoying great food and wine over looking the tuscan hills. We did the 1:30 class which I would highly recommend for timing as you get to experience the sunset in the fall. Chris, Aria and Tiziano really do make the experience extra special. They are just very welcoming and funny people. It seems they never get tired of the customers and just enjoy what they do. It makes all the difference. I did lots of research and rely quite a lot on reviews so please save yourself the time and trust this review. You won't regret it! I will be making this pizza at home and buying myself a gelato making machine for sure.
