“Ione, our guide was so nice. She was very enthusiastic and knowledgeable. The tour showed us a side to Venice life we wouldn't have seen on our own. Thank you.”

“3 friends and I treated ourselves to Moonlight Kayaking as a 40th birthday present to ourselves. Our guides Matt and Mark were very friendly, helpful and informative. Unfortunately my friend and I had to cut our tour short as my friend was feeling unwell. Matt was great looking after us and making sure were were ok, and driving us to the ending point to meet our other friends. My other friends who completed the tour had a ball and loved every minute of it. I look forward to booking again, and getting the full experience, and seeing my home town from a new perspective.”

“I was on the Snapshots of Barcelona with Alicia and was the only guest. This was a really informative walk round the city coupled with tips and hints on how to use the camera to gain the best from the photo opportunities in Barcelona. Apart from the obvious main tourist attractions, we also visited less touristy ones and off the beaten track. I would highly recommend this as an excellent orientation walk with the bonus of photo tips.”

You’ll meet your pizzaiuolo, a trained pizza maker, at a family run pizzeria in the heart of Florence, just minutes from the Ponte Vecchio and Uffizi Gallery. Trust us, this place is a true local gem! Milena, the owner, is a passionate foodie who comes from a family of chefs, cooks and restauranteurs. As soon as we arrive, you’ll feel her warmth and passion for welcoming guests. 

Milena only uses the best seasonal ingredients at her shop, and all of the toppings used are supplied by local farmers. Her finocchiona, a Tuscan salami made with pepper and fennel seeds, is one of the best in town! 

This local pizzeria is where you’ll have the chance to enjoy a hands-on experience making your own pizza, including learning to form the dough into a circular shape, adding the toppings you prefer, and putting your pizza into the oven. 

The base of this typical pizza is mozzarella made with buffalo or cows milk from the south of the Amalfi Coast in a town called Paestum (known for the best mozzarella in the world), tomatos grown around the foothills of Vesuvius, and basil from Naples.  

Once your pizza is in the oven, it will take just minutes to cook thanks to the high temperature oven used. These special ovens are made in Genova from a natural stone material, and are designed to ensure the perfect temperature for your pizza. 

And if all that pizza wasn’t enough, you’ll be pairing your pie with a local craft beer brewed just 20 minutes from Florence in the foothills of Chianti. Tuscan craft beer is made with ingredients from the region, including spelt, barley and malt. It’s typical in Italy to enjoy pizza with beer (but we have Italian soda on hand for kids or non-drinkers). 

At the end of the tour, bellies full of pizza and heads full of pizza-making knowledge, feel free to ask your guide for recommendations on what else to see, do (and eat) in Florence.
