What Our Clients Say
"Best vacation I have ever had! Experiences I would never have had otherwise. If you have the opportunity to go on this tour, DO IT!! Highly recommend!"
"We were treated as VIP’s and we were given a look into the lives of the local people. Pete definitely exceeded my expectations and was such a joy. Each day was better than the next. I can’t wait to see what trips he may offer in the future!"
“The pictures just don’t do the tour justice! You have to experience it. This is the only way to see Tuscany. Pete knows how to show it to you. DO IT!”
“Everyday there is something I oooh and ahhh about! I’m not a wine drinker and I’ve been drinking wine every day --and I am enjoying it! ... And the foods have been outstanding! Totally worth it!”

Our small travel group allows us to visit and stay at places we normally couldn’t with a large group. It is not as intrusive on the local culture and doesn’t overwhelm the destination.

Be a Trip Sponsor
In the photo are the women of the Tonsi Family of St. Louis. They loved our Tastes of Tuscany itinerary and selected a week to sponsor so they could have some quality family time together and attend as a private group with Pete as their host. As a Trip Sponsor, they were responsible for ensuring the rooms were filled with up to twelve of their selected friends (and family) and that the trip would be a go! They had an amazing time!
Being a Trip Sponsor of one of our small group tours of Italy is a great way to enjoy our delicious tours but in a more private group setting. Great for groups of friends that travel together, small family getaways, social groups like wine and cooking clubs, etc. It’s also a great way to thank valuable key clients and reward your most productive employees!

But I am going to be selfish this once and not share that information because I don’t want the rates to go up and it become so popular I can never book it again. Sorry. But… I will share the story of a delicious restaurant that I serendipitously came upon. It all started at a dead end street, Or at least I
Today, our last day of the tour, we travelled to San Pellegrino in Alpe. A bit chilly, we nestled together in a little cafe and had somo ‘cioccolata calla’ (hot chocolate) which is served very very thick – I needed a spoon. We visited the Ethnographic Museum Don Luigi Pellegrini. It was full of objects used in every facet of peasant life, until the recent past, including spinning and weaving, which every household did for itself. After lunch, we walk
Cooking with Gabriella
We are now on Day 6 of the Taste and Textiles tour. In the afternoon, we went to Gabriella’s house to get a cooking lesson. I was a bit overwhelmed when I saw the menu… it was alot of food to prepare. As we began the lesson, it became clear that she is literally addicted to cooking and approaches it with the passion and care of an Italian mamma. Her number one rule, use the best and freshest ingredients, and
