Customers review
Our Wine Tasting and Tuscany Sunset Dinner in Montecarlo was outstanding! We had a private tour getting all the attention. The WINE tasting emphasized local foods with extra virgin olive oil and the 4 Super Tuscan wines were delicious.  From the wineyard, we traveled by van into the medieval village of Montecarlo for a four-course meal ... LOTS of delicious food and overall, a wonderful evening.  Our guide Tanya, was just excellent!

All I can say is AWESOME. We did the Siena, Chianti, Cinque Terre and several other tours through Come and See Italy and in comparison with every tour group we have ever used in any of our travels this is by far THE BEST. We had the best tour guides that were all very knowledgeable, personable, and went out of their way to make our trips a true experience. Unlike so many tours we have taken, we were given plenty of time to explore on our own so that we could see the things that we were interested in and were directed to the best of the best by our guide. Everything ran on time and we could have not asked for a better experience. If you are visiting this area of Italy, do not consider any other tour company other than this. It doesn't get any better!! Thanks so much for making our visit most enjoyable and memorable.
