Out off all the activities I have done on my trip around Italy this has been the most amazing experience! Max, Anna and Toma were the most amazing instructors. They were so helpful and true masters of their craft. We also attended with a 12 year who absolutely loved it and has been making gelato everyday since. Thank you so much team! Would recommend this to everyone visiting Florence! 11/10 experience
