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.

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.

Very nice trip! Saw all the sights without worrying about where to go and how to get there. Would book if you get tired of having to plan out your day.

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