Super Tuscan experience!

I’ve enjoyed every second of a day trip from Florence to the Tuscan countryside. The landscape is just remarkable and Tuscany wine is delightful! I took a couple of bottles for my collection and some olive oil as a souvenir. All the stops were lovely, and my favorite was San Gimignano. The tour guide was very helpful, and the food and wine were just amazing. I highly recommend the tour!

Extremely happy!

I’m so happy that I’ve joined this tour during my trip to Italy. I don’t know much about wines, so I didn’t know what to expect, but the host in the winery was very personable and polite and took me through it. The food was impeccable, and the view was spectacular! Our guide was very knowledgeable as well. I enjoyed the tour in Siena, but my favorite stop was definitely Pisa!
