Great
This was one of the most scenic and informational tours I have experienced in Italy/Europe. The pace of the trip was very relaxing while also fitting in many different experiences. My highlights would be the cheese/vinegar tasting in Pienza as well as the lunch that follows. You also get the feeling that you’re having a unique Italian experience while supporting local businesses and culture. The best part of the tour was definitely our guide, Paris. She had information to share about every aspect of the experience, from the Roman roads and agriculture, as well particularities that make each experience special. She also delivered a considerable amount of information about the history of Tuscany and Italy in general in a very relatable way, which helps the factual and trivial knowledge really set in. I walked away feeling happily full of wine, cheese, and local delicacies AND being much smarter and understanding of general history. This tour was great to get a broad Tuscan experience!

I thoroughly enjoyed this day trip to Tuscany. It was a welcome break from the bustle of Rome. Julio was an excellent guide. The scenery of Tuscany is all that it's advertised. What a great day of food, new friends and excellent experiences.
