What people are saying about Sorrento

One of the top highlights of our Italy trip! Luigi personally picked us up from our hotel, after there was some miscommunication regarding pickup time and point. He was a blast to talk to and learn about his life. So authentic and energetic. The class was both informing and entertaining. We had a relatively small glass of 14, and I think that made it so much better. Luigi gave us personal instruction and help and showed us through every step. He was funny, knowledgeable and just overall an amazing host. He used to own a restaurant (Pizzeria) but decided this was more suited for family life. And slower. The pizza was DELICIOUS and cooked in under a minute! Luigi then drove us home and we got restaurant recommendations, life lessons and just overall a fun conversation. An absolute joy and would HIGHLY recommend to anyone looking for an authentic fun experience.

Such a unique and wonderful experience! Anna Maria is so kind and welcoming and so generous with her cooking expertise. One of the most memorable experiences on our trip!

Really an extraordinary tour. Our guide was super knowledgeable and a lot of fun. The wines were excellent and very unique highly recommend this trip.

Fantastic experience. Host and owner was very friendly too. Would recommend this experience if you’re considering it. Pizza was delicious too!

We had a fun time. Very personal experience with family recipes.
