Each of our 6 day trip (seven grade 6-11 grade students and two teachers) was filled with beautiful hikes and learning interesting scientific, cultural and artistic information and insights provided by Gianni Stanghellini and his colleagues. He generously invited us all into his home to make pasta from scratch. He performed a very memorable and unexpected solo flute concert for... More

I had a marvelous time on this trip. Our guide, Gianni, provided gorgeous walks and unique experiences with local organic producers of wine, produce, cheese, and olive oil. Definitely experiences I couldn't have had without his guidance and that helped me to appreciate what makes this region unique. Gianni is knowledgeable and expended every effort to ensure that our trip... More

We decided to take 2 days of our week long Tuscany holiday and dedicate them to doing walking tours with Walk About Tuscany with Gianni. I thought it would give us a real opportunity to see the real Tuscany away from the more touristy areas and we weren't disappointed. Gianni's communication with us was very helpful and we didn't have... More

Forget Rick Steves and sign on with Gianni for a wonderful exploration of some of the best Italy has to offer--countryside, history, food, and people. Gianni's deep knowledge of all these adds so much richness to the experience of walking through picturesque medieval towns and gorgeous rolling hillsides of vineyards, fields and orchards. The accommodations were comfortable and centralized, often... More

His replies to our questions were quick and he had lots of suggestions and idea for us to choose from rather than... More

A fantastic, rewarding and amazing walking tour with Gianni of Walk About Tuscany Tours in and around Siena. We were a small group of four, including Michael and Gillian, on a private tour with Gianni. He is a wonderful, knowledgeable host, so gregarious and a talented musician, as well.
