OUR GUESTS’ WORDS

  • An absolutely wonderful experience! Our Italian host, Marco, was well spoken and beautifully informed. We have never thought of doing cheese making, however, this will be long remembered. Cheese makers, Umberto and Francesco, were delightful and made us feel “part of the team”. They encouraged us to be fully involved (with our hands) in every step. Our labors were rewarded with delicious cheeses to eat! Lunch also included local meats! A tremendous event!! Highly recommended!!!

    Organizzazione perfetta. Oltre ogni aspettativa. Magica escursione in bici. Spettacolare degustazione di prodotti enogastronomici pugliesi. Davvero squisiti! Con i bambini abbiamo vissuto ore spensierate a contatto con la natura pedalando tra gli ulivi millenari della Puglia. Assolutamente più che consigliata! Grazie per questa esperienza sensoriale a 360° gradi.....

  • Great host. Very patient and the tour was nice for us to start our holiday in Puglia. We understood a little more about the region and its historic context. The pasta making and cheese making chefs were very polite and good. The only drawback was that as we were non meat and alcohol drinkers. The substitute items were perhaps not as good. We could've done with some good veggie options at the end to sample.

    We had a fantastic time learning to make orecchiette. Gaetano was also a brilliant host and shared his love of food and wine with us. And his olive oil was amazing too. Highly recommend this experience.

    Beautiful cooking experience. We were warmly received by the hosts in a beautiful masseria. We cooked under the guidance of the mother and grandmother of the house and prepared different kinds of pasta. They were extremely kind and patient. We enjoyed our meals on a beautiful terrace with some lovely wine. Would strongly recommend the experience!

  • We had a wonderful visit to Savoia. Our tour guide Anarita was energetic, knowledgeable, and very warm. Be prepared to be shocked and amazed at the glimpse of antiquity you will experience on this tour. When you realize that many of the olive trees are from the Roman Empire and earlier, the enormity of your experience begins to come into focus. Rosario the owner couldn’t have been more welcoming or embracing. The oil is magnificent and her love of the area and its history are so warmly exuded that you feel it as well as taste it. Take the tour and ship home as much as finances allow, you won’t be disappointed!
