Our Tuscany trip was amazing! Our tour guide Andrea was awesome. He answered any and all questions. From the cheese and wine tasting to the delicious food created by the farm and climbing to the top of the Montalcino Fortress, it was incredible!

The Tuscany tour from Rome was better than I could have imagined. Our guide, Chiara, was knowledgeable, personable, and kind. We visited a small town, 2 wineries, and an ancient fortress. The experience was interesting and lasted the perfect amount of time. We did not feel rushed at all. I was feeling a bit under the weather and the guide was very compassionate and checked in on me throughout the day. She also made great recommendations and even took photos of us to remember the great day we had. 10/10, I would recommend this day trip to anyone.

Andrea was an excellent guide. He was very personable and answered any questions that we asked. The places we visited were off the beaten path which made the experience that much better! It was the best way to enjoy Tuscany!

An excellent day touching upon several wonders of Tuscany. Our guide led us to so many special-and delicious-gems throughout the day. We sampled exquisite cheeses, salamis and wines, enjoyed a relaxed farmhouse lunch in the country and climbed the walls of an ancient castle. Andrei was professional, personable, informative and entertaining. A wonderful day out of the city!

Our tour guide was excellent, she made the excursion very worthwhile. Tuscany met all of our expectations! Tour group was a good match and the small number of participants was great.

Enjoyed the tour. Left Rome at 7:30 am and returned at 9:00 pm. Visited two towns, a winery for wine tasting and had lunch at a farm. Only negative was that our tour guide did not speak English clearly. None of our group could understand her. Very frustrating for a tour advertised as English speaking.

Small groups are the only way to go!

The Non-mainstream visits were the best…. Small towns and the family farm!

The small town stop was enjoyable. The cheese/meat tasting good. Castle stop was good for photos but not sure if it was worth the time, felt like a time filler. A stop at a roadside panoramic viewpoint would have been just as good in my opinion. The farm stop and meal was very enjoyable. Allowed for the group to chat and bond a bit as well. The vineyard stop was enjoyable. I dislike having a "tour" at each vineyard we've been to. The vineyards should offer the tour and allow others not interested to purchase a glass of wine to enjoy while tour takes place. We have been on several tastings and not interested in the barrels and bottling/aging of every vineyard. I had a bit of trouble hearing/understanding the guide with speaker system and her accent. I put headphones on during the ride and listened to music instead. Drive was approximately 2.5 hours each way. Drive to Tuscany was a bit better as we had stops to break up the drive.
