What people are saying about Milan

Both Chefs were very knowledgeable and even more nice and helpful. They are patient with those who know nothing and can answer questions if you’ve made pizza dozens of times.

We had some extra time in Milan, so we chose to see the vineyard. The villa is amazing to walk through and the grounds are beautiful. The audio is very informative.

We really enjoyed the guided bike ride. Everything was well organized, educational and we riding bikes through the city was a lot of fun for the whole family!

I recommend 100%. We booked our tickets a day before the trip and the prices were really good.

Great fun and even some interactive activities to do.
