Our aim is to bring visitors of Tuscany to the best food producers of wine, cheese, olive oil, honey, chocolate, pasta, grains and any local specialty.

Arianna and Friends organised our trip to attend the annual Andrea Bocelli concert in Lajatico, to celebrate a significant birthday. Their organisation from first to last was of the highest order, having given us a choice of hotel packages, airport transfers, tickets for the concert and transport to the event itself. We had a wonderful trip and Arianna and her... More

Booked a transfer for see Andrea Bocelli from our hotel. All the staff are so professional and friendly. SO helpful and very very well run. They had lost of staff when you got off the bus to show you where to go and then again when we came out of the concert. Highly recommend them.

Arianna & Friends booked the most amazing stay at Agriturismo Il Mulinaccio and we were fortunate enough to experience 2 lessons/tours, organised by them. Firstly, the booking: the booking process, clear instructions and efficient professionalism were second to none. The cooking class with Mama Maria from Il Mulinaccio with Arianna as interpreter was brilliant. We had so much fun. We... More

This is one for the books. We arrived into Pisa airport the day of the concert and rented a car. Well the car rental line took almost 2 hours so by the time we arrived at our destination it was time for our pick for the concert. We were in a total frenzy and left without our tickets. We had...

Buongiorno! Thank you very much for your words of appreciation. It was a very good coincidence that I was almost done with the arrivals of the big groups and my colleague Luca got inspired by the vespa scooterists riding around us. Joining all conditions I got the idea to get home and take my scooter to go through the huge... More

It was OK, nothing more... Guide seemed a bit fragile and insecure, did not seem familiar with her task/job. It all seemed a bit unprofessional/disorganized and at a very high price. We went by own car last year and there wasn't that much of a difference....except the price. Promoting that they were unique to enter Lajatico to escape the long... More

Dear reader, more than to the Tripadvisor user who wrote this comment, our reply is addressed to you because you might not understand a word from such a confusing message screaming out loud only that too much money was spent.

The hotel they organised was impeccable; transport arrangements to and from the concert spot on. They also kindly provided a personalised presentation voucher when I told them the trip was a special present for my husband.

Every time we visit Tuscany, we connect with Arianna & Friends! Their staff are local to the area, and love sharing the history and culture of Tuscany. In the past, we've prepared homemade pasta with our kids, and on our recent trip in July 2016, a complete Tuscan meal with our good friends. We also visited an Olive Mill and... More
