Experience highly recommended! Especially if you don't have a lot of time but want to discover part of Tuscany and its history through the main cities beyond Florence. The day was very pleasant and well organized; small groups well followed also in terms of languages, thanks to our fantastic guide, Luca, who satisfied all our curiosities as well as his excellent illustrations and explanations. Luca was very kind throughout the day, but above all his love for history, art and the Tuscany that he manages to convey have captivated us and made the experience even more special ...

Stefano was awesome and so was Nando. One of the most personable tour guides we’ve had in the 3 months we’ve been backpacking all over Europe and of the many tours we’ve done, he was funny and was interesting to listen to! I would recommend this tour for anyone that wants to see Tuscany! The lunch was amazing and definitely worth it! The vineyard was beautiful.

I highly recommend the tour for people, which want to see some highlights of Toscany. As I’m not eating mean I was even surprised to have some nice pasta and other dishes which made my stomach happy and Alexandro, he was a guide with a passion, always there when you have some questions

Our guide Ale from Walkabout Florence was amazing! Spent the time to talk to each of us, and was more than happy to answer questions and give us suggestions about the places we went to!

Our guide Sonia was wonderful! If we were to do anther excursion like this, we’d do only 2 towns, 3 seemed too rushed.
