My wife came across Paola's website while researching wine tours in Tuscany. After looking through through several other websites we decided to book a Brunello di Montalcino tour with Paola and Take Me Out in Tuscany. Her sense of personalization and customer service was evident through our initial email correspondence. She suggested that the bus from Rome to Siena was... More

Paola was our tour guide for a full day in and around Montalcino in mid Oct. In all of our years of touring with guides, many from TA, we have never been disappointed. But we were with Paola. First, and this may not be an issue for many, Paola is a smoker and her van, while visibly clean, reeked of... More

Dear Roin, your negative review surprised me as I did not feel your deep disappointment during the day tour. Nobody is perfect and we cannot please everyone. I accept complaints to improve myself and my work, but they have to be appropriate and honest. After that, I want to clarify some of your comments. I'm a smoker but I never... More

My husband and I recently spent a day with Paola in Tuscany and what a wonderful experience it was! Paola is a wonderful guide and a lovely person to spend the day with. She had great suggestions, was very helpful and responsive in the planning process, and showed us a wonderful time in the hill towns outside of Siena. If... More

My niece and I are on an 8 week adventure through Europe and our wine tasting day with Paola was a highlight of our trip. We hired Paola to pick us up at our hotel in Siena and to take us on a wine tour ending at our hotel in Florence. She was such fun... So personable and extremely knowledgeable... More

Visiting the historic picturesque villages and cities reminds one of our heritage and fantastic european culture. The development of western civilization unfolds as you travel the countryside. In addition you can't beat the food. Even in October the scenery is breath taking and the crowds manageable.

Our day with Paola was one of the top highlights of our time in Italy. She picked us up from a convenient location in Florence and was a joy to spend the day with. She gave us a good overall education about the region and Chianti wine which enhanced our experience at each of the 3 wineries we visited. We... More

Paola took our group of five adults on a day tour of Volterra and San Gimignano, departing from and returning to Siena. As we set out on the road, Paola explained the background and culture of Siena's contrade and Palio race as only a local could. She was honest about which sites were worth seeing and which weren't, so we... More

We had a great day with Paola! We wanted to see San Gimignano and Volterra, but knew that connections via bus or train were a bit difficult and time-consuming. We decided to hire a private guide to get us there and maximize our time in these places. We'd heard that San Gimignano was very busy, so we asked Paola if... More
