What people are saying about Florence

This trip was amazing!!!! So personal which was great for our honeymoon trip. Simona is THE BEST! She was so kind and came to pick us up after the taxi strike delayed us getting to the meeting point. She was a fabulous tour guide throughout Tuscany, and we really enjoyed it. The horseback riding was so incredible! You ride through olive and grape fields and it’s truly spectacular. The winery visit was MAGICAL. Martina did a fabulous job giving the history of the area, and it was so magical.

It was a wonderful experience. Our guide was great, informative and very attentive. She made sure we understood and enjoyed the hunting. The dog’s trainer explained the whole process of hunting and the different kinds of trouffles. The dogs were amazing and friendly. At the end, we had lunch which included a trouffle pasta dish at a great restaurant. I highly recommend this. It was a great time.

Very well organized tour. Friendly and communicative staff. It was our first time on horses for that long. I was concerned a little bit, but they have really good horses. And the trail was very pleasant. We will most likely do more of horse back riding back home. Wine tasting was most informative. I finally learn how to do it.

Had the best time riding through the Tuscan hills and had wonderful guides. Not too strenuous, was just fine for a first time horseback rider. The olive oil tasting was interesting and fun and lunch was lovely. A great laid back activity.

It was a great tour with Simona. The horses were great and my family really enjoyed getting to tour a small private vinyard with wine tasting. Would love to go again and do even more.
