I wish I could put more stars. This was one of the highlights of our trip. They made us feel so comfortable we felt like we were visiting relatives. Every meal since our cooking class with Bluone in Italy has not been as good. They set the bar high!

We have all had events that are memorable for the wrong reasons. The evening we spent with Raffaella, her husband Marcello and son was out of this world. It was memorable for all the right reasons. From the moment we arrived we were made to feel like family. The easy banter and laughter made the experience feel like you were... More

My husband and I traveled to Italy for our honeymoon and booked the Foodie Culinary Tour through Bluone. It was definitely one of the most memorable days of our trip and one of the best experiences that we've had together as a couple. Marcello picked us up at 2pm and we drove into the countryside. Along the way he gave... More

We planned our 10-day couples trip to Italy around the availability of Bluone's Market Tour & Cooking Class in Bologna. This experience had been the highlight of our trip to Italy in 2010 & we knew they would provide us with an unforgettable taste of Italian food & culture. The tour of the Bologna markets is informative, descriptive, & involves... More

Both Marcello and Raffaella are a wonderful couple and they are most experienced and helpful in terms of organising a specially tailored tour package just for you. I had an amazing time in Bologna, visiting a winery, extra virgin olive oil makers and learning how to make authentic Bolognese ragu, pasta and tiramisu. If you are visiting Bologna and would...

Touring Umbria with Marcello & Raffa was amazing - definitely one of the highlights of my life. I am now a huge fan of small group tours & especially of those offered by Bluone Cooking & Wine Tours. Marcello & Raffa's knowledge & passion for Italy & their tours is readily apparent. Our accommodations were fabulous, we easily saw the... More

We've been on several tours with Bluone, the most recent being their Umbria Wine & Food Tour. The reason we keep coming back to Bluone is it introduces outsiders like us to Italian life. Marcello and Raffa love their country and want to share their passion with everyone. When you go on a Bluone tour, it is so much more... More

Many of my friends have taken tours with Bluone-Wine and Cooking Tours in Italy. Without exception they rave about both the quality of the tours and the fun of traveling with Rafa and Marcello who plan everything perfectly. I am not a tour person as we prefer taking our own roads; however, this time it was a trip with girlfriends... More

This was my fifth tour with Raffa and Marcello, and all have been wonderful. The Prosecco region of 15 towns in the Veneto outside Venice is a special place. Rolling hills of vineyards and wineries are tranquil and beautiful. We sampled the products of many wineries including prize winners. The production is strictly controlled for quality and only those wines... More

Traveling with Marcello and Raffa of Bluone Tours takes you places hard to find with experiences never imagined. Touring with Bluone in Umbria, truffle hunt with the dogs, cook with chefs and enjoy cooking agriturismo style as well. We walked the hills of Umbria and dined with the locals. All this and the warmth and knowledge of Marcello and Raffa... More
