We did the Great CHIANTI Wine Private tour from Lucca. Thank you so much for our wonderful guide Tanya. She was fantastic! She was very knowledgeable and so easy to talk with...it was like traveling with a dear friend. She made our visit very special.  When ever in Italy again we will call your agency for tours and a guide, and if in this area, we would love to travel again with Tanya.

The cooking with you was one of our highlights for our trip. We have just arrived back in Australia after our trip to Italy and Tuscany. We would like to thank you for organising the cooking class while we were in Tuscany. We certainly learned much about Tuscan traditional cooking. Thank you very much.
