The tour with our guide Leonora and our driver Stefano was professional and well organised from start to finish. The interaction was relaxed and genuine and they made a real effort to learn a little about each of us and connect that with the themes of the tour. Leonora continually checked in with us to make sure we were ok and to provide any extra information needed. We were well informed of the schedule at every stage, and there was an ideal mix of structured time and free time throughout. Leonora's historical knowledge was spot on and conveyed in an engaging and enthusiastic way. The entire tour was seamless, relaxed, informative, professional and hospitable. Grazie Leonora e Stefano.

Perfect way to explore Tuscany in a day! So beautiful, amazing food at the farm and an amazing guide! Totally worth every penny!

A highly enjoyable day with our fantastic guide, Nabel (my apologies if the spelling is incorrect) and our two wonderful drivers, Fabio and Stefan. The process, including the meeting point and drop off at the end of the day was seamless. As a solo traveller, I loved meeting 9 new people, all of whom were gorgeous!. We had an amazing day! There was a lot of laughter, sharing of stories and fun. We were in vans of five with our respective drivers and after each well timed and relaxing visit, Nabel took turns to be with each group. Fabio was a great driver and the ride was smooth and comfortable (next time, we will try harder to get him to sing for us). Nabel could answer any question we asked and provided us with so much information about interesting places to visit, what to see and lots of helpful tips about Firenze and other towns. I noticed that Nabel was constantly checking to ensure everyone was being looked after and was genuinely pleased to see how well the group had melded - a happy atmosphere the whole day!. The lunch was the highlight, as others have said, and Nicola was a terrific host. I would definitely recommend this tour and if possible, would like to see more itineraries added, with Florence as the base.

Everything about the tour was excellente!- we thoroughly enjoyed the entire experience-the sites visited, the tour Guide, the food & wine and comfortable transportation.

This was an amazing tour. We were very pleased with the places we stopped and the wine tasting experience was so much fun. There is a lot of uphill walking on this tour, but well worth it. There was confusion at the beginning as several of us were told to meet at one location and the meeting location had been changed. The driver found us though and we were able to join the tour. Our tour guide, Constanza, was wonderful. She knows the area very well and was very informative and friendly. This was just a fabulous day!
