Our first experience was the Olive Oil Production and Pecorino Cheese Making tours with Luca. We drove our own rental vehicle behind our tour guide's car to the various locations to experience the local processes. Luca was knowledgeable,... More

I had heard about Andrea Bocelli singing once a year in his hometown of Lajatico, in an outdoor theatre he had built for himself in the hills of Tuscany. I googled Andrea Bocelli's name and his hometown to see about the concert. I came across a company called Arianna and Friends. I sent an e-mail to them about purchasing tickets... More

I have taken two tours with Arianna- the Tuscan Kitchen cooking school and the Olive Oil tour and lunch. I am a stickler on customer service and attention to detail. Plus I hardly ever give 5 star rating. I happily give Arianna and Friends a 5 star rating of excellence for customer service, attention to detail, and most importantly she... More

In my review of the Hilton Club at Borgo Alle Vigne I went into detail about this great tour guide team. They made our trip to Tuscany special and inspiring.

Having just finished a 7 day cruise that ended in Rome, my husband and I spent a few days in Tuscany to unwind. We went on a side trip every day during the cruise to many exciting locations, but we both agree our favorite trip was the day we spent with Luca driving Vespas around the beautiful Tuscan countryside. We... More

We joined a truffle hunt followed by a wonderful lunch featuring many items with a bit of truffle. A great time. Warning: there are many tempting items for sale at the company store. Our second adventure was a pasta cooking school, with Carla as our head chef. She was a delight, and our group of 4 again had a great... More

We did 3 tours with Ariannandfriends. The free tour of Peccioli is just amazing. It is just the right lenght of time, and one does not realize that there is sooo much history in this small town. The museum is also very nice. We tood the 'group single day cooking class' - loved this class. Arianna translated while Carla instructed... More
