They picked us up and drove us to a beautiful house were we took the pasta making class. Every step was explained very well and they were very supportive and encouraging in their teaching methods, which was great because I am a far from natural cook :-) After the class we enjoyed some delicious snacks, drinks and our self-made pasta in their lovely garden.

I highly recommend you book this experience, it is amazing! Isabella and Valerio are very kind and funny people. They picked us up and drove us to a beautiful house were we took the pasta making class. Every step was explained very well and they were very supportive and encouraging in their teaching methods, which was great because I am a far from natural cook :-) After the class we enjoyed some delicious snacks, drinks and our self-made pasta in their lovely garden.

We had a wonderful afternoon with great conversations and even better food. Isabella and Valerio are super nice people and the pasta making was a lot of fun. I was so in love with the bread Valerio baked that he gave me a quarter of it and I smuggled it home :-) I would highly recommend!

Recommendation! Our two tour guides were really kind and told us a lot about sardinien culture and Cagliari itself. They brought us to really nice beaches which aren’t well known by a lot of tourists. It was a pleasure to swim and sunbath there.

Claudia is a great guide as well as the driver. Very nice tour where you can see and have time to enjoy different beaches. Also great that they give you umbrella and a gopro to take pics in the water!

Franco was a fantastic tour guide and Giuseppe was a very genuine host - would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Cagliari!
