On Sept 15, 2016 we spent the day with Arianna and Alesio visiting local organic wineries in the Tuscany Region. We visited both Il Bacio and Cappella Saint Andrea. Everyone throughly enjoyed the relaxing experience learning much of the wine industry and the local area from Anianna and Alesio and the operators of the wineries. We will certainly join them again on our next trip to the Tuscany Region.
We only had one day to spend in Tuscany on our trip, but with Arianna and Alesio by our side, we had a weeks worth of experiences! They are truly passionate and knowledgable about the countryside and have a special gift in being able to share that with visitors. This is not a normal "tour," this is a secret passage way into true Tuscany. We are already dreaming of our return and spending much more time with Arianna and Alesio!
Arianna and Alesio led us on a one-of-a-kind tour of the Tuscan countryside. They graciously put together a special combination of tours for our group to visit a pasta factory and winery. We met the owners at the small, family-run pasta factory, and the tour included a delicious lunch and a cooking lesson. The winery has been in the same family for 500 years and our tour guide was a wonderfully sweet elderly woman who lives in the beautiful house and gardens on site. Arianna and Alesio have clearly gone to a great effort to coordinate tours of intimate, family-run businesses that reveal an authentic experience. They are wonderful and knowledgeable guides from the area who can tell you about the history, geography, culture, etc. of Tuscany and Italy. I would highly recommend the tours to anyone looking for an intimate tour with welcoming and hospitable hosts, good conversation, and a great taste of Tuscany.
I gave myself a big pat on the back for choosing Arianna and Alesio's amazing service. It was like meeting old friends, they made us feel their love for beautiful Italy. A truly memorable and authentic experience. Beautiful nature, amazing wine, great food and lovely people.. What more can you ask for?
It was a very incredible experience. Thank you so much Alessio and Arianna, Tuscany with you was so unique!
