What people are saying about Tuscany

This trip was amazing!!!! So personal which was great for our honeymoon trip. Simona is THE BEST! She was so kind and came to pick us up after the taxi strike delayed us getting to the meeting point. She was a fabulous tour guide throughout Tuscany, and we really enjoyed it. The horseback riding was so incredible! You ride through olive and grape fields and it’s truly spectacular. The winery visit was MAGICAL. Martina did a fabulous job giving the history of the area, and it was so magical.

I highly recommend doing this vespa tour! Dejan was a great guide and was very fun to interact with! They did a good job of teaching you how to drive the vespa and made sure you were good enough/comfortable before taking you out on the road. Actually driving on the road was much easier than the practice! We came back after ~ an hour ride and had a great lunch & wine.

We had a wonderful time writing the bikes on the wall around Lucca. The bikes were well maintained and had baskets. They also supply you with a lock so you can stop. Overall an excellent experience.

we had a very nice guide, she told very nicely so you could keep your attention, we 'learned' a lot about Florence! Thanks for today

Amazing! The best horse back riding I have ever been on. Beautiful landscape and great guides. The food and wine were delicious.
