What people say about us

We are a family of 5 (3 children ages 21, 18 and 14) This was one of the best activities we did in Italy! Lilliana and Antonio were such gracious hosts! Titi, who was our translator/guide was excellent and spoke perfect English. Lilliana taught us how to make fresh pasta, eggplant parmigiana and tiramisu. It was the best meal we had on our trip and an unforgettable experience that will stay with us always! More than any other activity, this really made us fell immersed in the culture of Italy!

I just wanted to echo the comments made about Platypus and Alessandro in particular. He took us on a walking tour to the peak and all around. He was interesting, knowledgeable and likeable. Cannot recommend him highly enough. Simon and Fiona Jersey

I just returned from Italy and wanted to say one of the highlights of my 2 week vacation was the cooking class arranged by Platypus Itinerary. The Platypus driver pick us up at hotel and drove us to Bunopane , which means good bread. We were met by our translator Daniela. She walked us around to the town mural, and explained the characters to us. We then had a short walk to the home of Lilliana and Dino , they were our host & hostess. There home has a wonderful outdoor cucina with a beautiful garden. Lilliana made the class fun ! We watched Lilliana prepare a bolognese sauce and then gave us instructions for making homemade pasta. This was the first entry we prepared , then we learned to make eggplant parmesan the Lilliana way , and Tiramisu. All of this great meal plus homemade wine . This is a great way to meet local Italians on a beautiful island. Kathleen DiMeglio
