More about this tour

The tour starts with your encounter with a local guide, who will provide much interesting information on the food traditions of the region and on the proper "boom" of chocolate producers in Tuscany in the last 20 years. A phenomenon that brought to the definition of "chocolate valley" when referring to the Arno river area in Tuscany.
The visit to the chocolate workshop starts with an introduction to the world of cocoa and chocolate with a lot of curiosities and interesting facts about the cultivations and the processing of the cocoa beans.
In the tasting room of the company, the chocolate makers gives you an in-depth explanation of several procedures to reach the most refined chocolate delicacies, from the tempering to the finished product.
During the introduction, all your discoveries are supported by the sampling of several chocolate products, from simple bars with different percentage of cocoa, to elaborated products paired with incredible very selected extra ingredients, like pistachios, dried figs or pears, fantastic liquors and dessert wines or delicious cream-based
soft fillings.

This activity is ideal for groups and families with children!

Arianna & Friends organizes this hands-on experience for private parties only.
In December and in the month preceding Easter this activity is not available.

COMMENTS OF OUR GUESTS

This is an email we received from Roxanne, who booked a private chocolate experience and a tour to Vinci with us.

Good afternoon

We booked 2 days of tours with you last November and I'm not sure if I ever let you know how much we enjoyed the tours-especially Mossimo's company. We did a day trip to the chocolate making in San Miniato and then Vinci. The next day we toured Pisa and Lucca. The kids really enjoyed the chocolate making. I have pictures I can send if you are interested in seeing them. Thanks again and any time I hear of someone traveling your way, I recommend your company.

COMMENTS OF OUR GUESTS

This is an email we received from Sharon from the US, who spent a week in Giuseppe's agriturismo doing a lot of our activities:

Arianna, thank you! I hope, by now, that you and the team have recovered from the Bocelli concert!

I'm sorry not to have written back before now, but we have been very busy putting life and the businesses back in order upon our return.

We had the best, best time, and I have already begun giving out your business cards to friends and acquaintances who have inquired. We all feel that we got to know the area of Tuscany rather well during our stay, and could not have thought of a way to make the trip better.

No vacation will ever quite be the same, as my standards have now changed because of Arianna and Friend's great offering of activities.

Although the family cannot agree on any ONE activity we felt was our favorite, we all agree that the San Minato day of chocolate, Lee's bio-dynamic winery, and the truffle-hunting was probably our most memorable day as a whole.

Thank you, again, for helping me to be a hero within the family. If you or your team are ever in Southern California, you'll always have a place to stay.

Please give our heartfelt greeting to Massimo and the rest!
XO
Sharon
