My cousin took this tour 3 years before and recommended it to me as one of the most unique and thoughtful experiences she had so I took her word for it and signed up for a group tour during our recent trip to Florence. The day of the tour Luca picked us up from our hotel and it turned out... More

Luca Garappa is a wonderful tour guide. He is fun to be with and has interesting insights into Tuscany as he was born and raised in Siena. Luca is one of the few guides in Tuscany that does joinable tours and his tours are perfect for an individual traveling on their own or for a small group. I joined him... More

This year was the 3rd time that we hired Luca for touring in Tuscany. The 1st time was in 2006 and then again in 2008, and on all 3 occasions Luca was our driver and went to Stefania's farm for lunch, and as usual her cooking was amazing. Luca now has people working for him, is still very professional and... More

We spent a wonderful day exploring the Tuscan countryside with our knowledgeable guide. We visited Crete Senesi, Asciano, MonteOliveto Maggiore, Chiusure (my favorite), Buonconvento, and Montalcino. A behind the scenes look at a small family run Trujillo winery was a personal highlight. I would highly recommend Hills and Roads tour company. From beginning to end the experience was pleasant. The... More

Before the wine tasting date, I asked so many questions through emails. They wrote me back quickly with answers. I was very pleased with that, to start with. I chose hills and roads for this reason as well as customized tour with great price. On our wine tasting day, Andre, driver, arrived on time to pick us up. We went... More

My wife and I booked a private tour with Hills and Roads in May during our honeymoon and it instantly became a highlight. From Angela, who was the perfect driver and host, to the wineries planned for us - everything was perfect. Angela gave us a ton of info while heading through Tuscany and was absolutely perfect throughout the tour.... More

We communicated with Luca before leaving home and he was easy to deal with and clear with his suggestions and costs. We were picked up in Florence for a transfer to Siena by Christiano (Chris) and we can't say enough about how friendly, knowledgeable and accommodating he was. We had asked to visit a couple of wineries on the way... More

Luca and his staff are the best there is. We had booked him for three days and he set up a tour of the top places with lunches at winery's. The tour the food and the wine was second to none.
