"Several years ago I did a cooking class in Orvieto with Tasting Places. It was truly one of the best holidays I've ever had. Learning the tricks of a first-class chef while enjoying the beauty of Umbria with a group of like-minded people made for a week never to be forgotten. I can't recommend them highly enough!"
Caren, California

"My Tuscan "cooking holiday" at Tasting Places was one of my most memorable and fun vacations. The flour-less chocolate cake we made (and enjoyed eating afterwards) is always a big hit when I entertain. I can't wait to go back to Tasting Places again one day soon!"
Lorraine, London

"Discover Soriano and their whole tour group was a totally fabulous experience and we would recommend it to anyone who needs a fun week but doesn't want to do all the leg work. They usually have no more than 12 people and the couple who run it are awesome! It was very organized and the wineries we went to and ate at were so special and not the kind of thing you can plan yourself without a group. It was really worth it and lots of fun!"
