    Incredible experience, the warmth and benevolence of the hosts refresh the heart. Very attentive, everything is taken care of down to the smallest detail. Their generosity lives up to the reputation of the Sicilians. Little pinch in the heart when leaving This activity exceeded all our expectations Juliette & Hugo

    The experience with Anna was great. We cooked together in her apartment and it was very homely. We made fish, pasta and caponata, it was great. In addition to the culinary experience, this evening also enriched us with valuable tips on excursion destinations and the local culture. Would definitely recommend.

    My wife and I just got done with the class this evening and we loved it!! Our host was so kind and invited us into her flat, led us in preparing a wonderful meal with items from the local market, and engaged us with great conversation. We learned about Sicily and cooking all at once! The only trouble we had was the address GYG has is incorrect. A last-minute email from GYG fortunately came through and we walked (only 300m) to the correct address. Thanks so much for hosting us!
