Great trip to see a lot in a relative short time. Tuscan country side, Old towns and good food. Our guide Manolo was great, with a lot of information about Tuscany and Florence and on the way back he went past everyone to answer any questions they might had. Loved it!

Amazing immersion in the Italian history, art and cuisine. Perfect combination of sight seeing in 3 "must see" places in Tuscany, complete taste of the incredible food and wine from Tuscany and enjoyable and entertaining guide with Alessandro.

Very good guide (Lavinia), she knows a lot about the area and the history. Speaks perfect English and is very easy to understand and understand. The driver (Emiliano) is skilled and drives like a gentleman.

Great group experience, enough time to walk around and enjoy. Would have liked more time at Pisa, maybe Pisa should be a bit longer, just a suggestion.

The guide was perfect Our guide Lavina was so helpful and understanding ❤️
