My friend and I enjoyed a lovely week in Tuscany in February of this year (2020). Together in Tuscany & Umbria were instrumental in helping us plan our vacation. They accompanied us to our apartment in Cortona to make sure we understood everything, they arranged wine tours for us with a private driver and they even stayed late for us when Google Maps directed us to the wrong town upon our arrival. I would highly recommend using their services and I will definitely book through them again when we return in the future!

We had a fantastic journey to Cortona Italy ! The accommodations we clean , spacious, and in the heart of town! The staff responded quickly to any questions or concerns we had. They provided excellent/ professional transportation that was always on time. The excursions they arranged for us were fun adventurous, informative, and the guides gave us a cultural and historical lesson with every experience!

My wife and I won trip to Cortona from a raffle last spring. We invited our two closest friends to join us and really didn’t know what to expect. We had seen pictures of the villa but you and I know pictures can not always tell the whole truth. Working with the folks at TTT&E was amazing they responded to our every request and were always on top of any changes that had to be made. Their entire staff was was awesome from the owner down to the wonderful drivers everything was first rate. The Casa di Bacco was exactly everything we wanted down to the location we cloud walk every where we had to go. I will say the town of Cortona is magical but steep! It is not for someone who doesn’t walk a lot and even after reading up on it my wife and I started walking at home 2 miles a day to prepare for the trip which made our walk much easier in Cortona. I would say this was the best trip we have ever taken to Europe and we travel a lot! All made possible by the wonderful people at Together Tuscany and Embrio

The staff at Together in Tuscany & Umbria are fabulous! We bid on (and won) a week's accommodation at a charity auction but needed to upgrade to a bigger place when more friends wanted "in" on this wonderful adventure! Carlotta, via email, was able to change and arrange everything for the 6 of us (2 couples, 2 friends) who spent a week at Casa di Bacco and helped us booked 6 different excursions and a rental car with Together in Tuscany. The home was lovely, well-appointed and nicely suited for our group. We especially enjoyed the beautiful private garden for our morning coffee and pre-dinner drinks! Having traveled almost 24 hours to get there, the Welcome Dinner arranged for our arrival was a real life-saver as no one wanted to go out or find food that evening! Waking up to the church bells' chimes and attending morning Mass at the Convent of St Chiara was a wonderful start to our days. Every one of our booked 'outings' was well organized, their communication was accurate, thorough and we really enjoyed our time! The walking tour of Cortona rates as our # one, must-do activity! Our excellent guide, Simona, gave an invaluable introduction to the immediate area that was SO helpful. The included meal was absolutely amazing! We came away with so many good ideas/tips for shopping, museums to see and places to eat during our stay. This tour was actually less walking than expected, but still a full agenda of up and down steep stone roads, so do NOT wear heels!! "Wine & Dine with a Chef and Sommelier" was by far the most interesting and educational experience and we had such fun making Pork fillets, Gnocchi, Tiramisu and more. Definitely worth the expense! Although Chef Ivan had to adapt his menu to the limitations of the kitchen, he gave great explanations and instructions in our lesson, our meal was excellent and the wine pairing with Phillipo was phenomenal. Just do yourself a favor and don't plan anything for the next morning - we were a bit smashed after that evening! 2 other "tours" we booked involved a total of 5 different winery visits and tastings. The arranged transportation was comfortable and drivers were both friendly and helpful. Each winery was unique and we enjoyed the tastings and all we learned about wine, but our favorite was "Cooking at a Winery + Additional Winery in the Afternoon". This tour included both a large and a small-scale winery, we made Pici (pasta) and a fruit tart, had a nice lunch with our first wine tasting, were able to visit the vineyards and taste the grapes, and we learned a lot about the wine-making process from start to finish. We went to Sienna, Assisi and Lake Trasemino in a rental car, a brand-new Fiat Panda; very small, but good for both the roads and our needs since all 6 of us didn't go each day. The rental (International drivers permit are required) allowed us to move at our own pace and made checking out easy as we returned it at the same time - their office is a few steps from the train station! For our last day in Italy, we stayed in Florence and booked "Florence in a Day - Private Tour". This was initially more of an expense than we'd like, but with 4 of us, the price was absolutely worth the individual attention, skip-the-line entry tickets, gelato and a great meal in Florence. Our guide, Marco, was so knowledgeable, informed, helpful and made our one day in the city an amazing experience that we will always cherish.

The staff at Together in Tuscany & Umbria were instrumental in planning the trip of a lifetime for me and my husband! We purchased our stay at an auction, and they were fantastic at helping us with the details, and planning tours while we were there (and even a doctor visit)! We could not have asked for better service, or a better experience. If you get a chance to do the cooking class "At the Chef's Kitchen Table" with Francesca, AND the tour at the cheese-making farm - do it! They were our favorite experiences while we were there! The town of Cortona is perfection! We can't wait to go back!
