“The Best Tour We Ever Had!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Luca was an excellent tour guide and driver. He knew exactly what my husband and I wanted to see. He picked us up at our hotel and drove us through the scenic Chianti Hills. We had a wine and olive oil tasting in a winery while visiting the wine cellar. We also went to Certaldo, a Medieval town and had a wonderful lunch of pasta and wild boar. Luca later drove us to the picturesque town of San Gimignano. We had an absolutely incredible and highly thought provoking day with Luca. He is wonderful. His depth of knowledge on a wide variety of important subjects is truly really impressive, and was greatly appreciated. Grazie, Grazie, Grazie!

“Tour of Tuscany with a Great Guide”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 14, 2013

We needed to get from Florence to Rome, but wanted a scenic ride. We hired Andrea from Hills & Roads and got more than just a drive. Andrea planned the trip, which took all day, starting with a winery tour and tasting, seeing the sights of Tuscany and heading into Siena for lunch and walking around. He knew the history and happily shared his knowledge with us. It felt like we were getting the real flavor of the area. We then headed to the coast and stopped for some wonderful cheese before being dropped off at our hotel in Rome. The whole trip was such a treat, and so well organized. I can't say enough about this company and how well they treated us.

“Great experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

We did four days with Hills and Roads in March 2013. Three days of Tuscany region tours based out of Sienna and a fourth day to Assisi. We had Luca, Maria, and Angela as drivers - all great. We were so glad that we decided to use Hills and Roads instead of renting a car and driving ourselves. They were all friendly, knowledgeable, and accommodating. Highly recommend them!

“The BEST tour company ever!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We were a group of six that traveled to Italy in November. We had booked very early in the year and were able to get Luca (the owner) as our driver. We hired him for 3 days. The first day he picked us up in Rome and brought us to Tuscany, stopping in Orvieto on the way, which was amazaing. The next day he brought us to Florence and then a beautiful, small vineyard called Pratesi, a wonderful day! The last day we went to Siena, Monteriggioni which was a fortress near Siena and another wonderful vineyard in Tuscany, called Pieve Vecchia. He then brought us to a small seaside village that overlooked the Mediterranean and then on to Civitavecchia where we picked up our cruise. Luca was so personable, so accomodating and made our trip to Italy have some of the best vacation memories you can have. We would highly recommend Hills and Roads and hope to return one day to have Luca drive us through the beautiful "Hills and Roads" of Italy again.

“Leave the Driving to the Pros!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

Hills and Roads was a BIG part of our trip to Italy. We spent 3 different days with them. They picked us up in Rome and we took a nice drive with a great stop for lunch to Siena. It was so much better than taking the train. Then they picked us up at our hotel in Siena for a wonderful day in the country side. Small towns, lunch at a wonderful farm/vineyard, and some very special time with a crystal engraver. Finally, we were picked up in Manarola, had lunch in Pisa and a little shopping, then delivered to Verona. We were able to make our travel time tour time! They did a great job! Thanks Maria and Andrea!
