This private guided Tuscany trip can departure from any Tuscan town.

For our guests comfort we only operate private tours by private cars and/or minivans which can get closer to the main points of interest than larger buses. According to Italian traffic regulations licensed minivans up to 8 passengers are considered equivalent to taxis therefore, can access all the restricted areas of each city center. Private cars and/or minivans can go and stop in front of sites and so the walking distance to be covered is minimum which allows us to maximize your precious holiday time reducing to zero the walking time otherwise required to go from the bus pick up/drop off point to the city centers and vice versa during the visit. This is a HUGE advantage especially when you visit Tuscany countryside where by using a bus passengers would be forced to walk long distances to just reach the city center from the drop off point and back for the pick up. This means a lot of saved time therefore, more sightseeing at relaxed pace within the same number of tour hours.

Baby seats are mandatory for infants, please request at time of booking.

TESTIMONIALS

  • Vatican Children Tour

    Thank you for the great experience!  Filippo was a great guide, very knowledgeable. Engaged the kids and redirected their attention when needed.

  • In-Depth Vatican Tour

    Hi Rachel,
    I wanted to thank you for arranging this tour, Ms. Lucia was amazing! We had the time of our lives and Ms. Lucia was extremely informative and very considerate of my elderly mother’s needs to navigate the stairs, stay as cool as possible, avoid the crowds, etc. She carefully explained what we were seeing and brought the items to life with her description and passion for the subject. I could tell she is very accomplished at what she does, not only because of her deep, personal knowledge of the subject, but also since she is so aware of her guests comprehension level, she can quickly sense when to add more explanation if required. All in all, I could not say that anything could have gone better, except possibly having the rest of the tourists stay home for the day and to have more air conditioning! She was simply fabulous, and I would be more than happy to be a reference for you if you would ever think that would be helpful. My mother and I enjoyed discussing the entire time we spent with Ms. Lucia later that day and going over some of the major points she made that we thought were so insightful. I expect we will continue to discuss this for years to come.
    All of the arrangements, such as how to meet in the morning, etc, that you set up worked perfectly as well. It was a pleasure to deal with such a professional group as yours.
    Again, thanks for making this trip so special. If you could somehow pass on our thanks to Ms. Lucia, I would be most appreciative.

  • Rome Cooking Class

    The day was sublime. It is hard to believe, given the history and beauty of Rome, but this culinary experience was the highlight of our trip. We will remember the food, the wine, and our wonderful hosts every time we step in our kitchen and it will influence our cooking forever. Thank you for a day of all days.
