My husband and I booked a Girosole Italy Walking Tour through Tuscany for our honeymoon and it did not disappoint! From our first email exchanges to communication during the tour, the Girosole team was responsive and tended to our every need with speed and care. The accommodations (we selected First Class/Select) were outstanding. The feel of staying in smaller less touristy towns was such a wonderful departure from how chaotic staying in a bigger city can be. The walks themselves were incredible, not only because of the incredibly views, but the easy to use app that we used on our phones where the routes were clearly laid out and easy to follow. I will say that these routes are challenging, but that made the wine and pasta at the end all the more worth it. This was such a wonderful way to experience Tuscany for the first time, and we cannot recommend it enough. I will also say booking the first class/select accommodations was nice because it allowed us to spend two days in a city versus moving every day. We will absolutely be back and book another tour through Girosole!

Our amazing "50th Birthday Girls Celebratory" holiday is now a memory! What a wonderful memory it is, it was just how I imagined it to be. Prior to departing I had a mental imagine of what we would likely see and experience and not a single day was I disappointed. What amazing days we had, some days were tougher than others, we had the delight of great sunshine and then grey, rain and mist but not once did we ever think we would not get to the top of that hill! Sometimes it took us a bit longer, and we walked a bit slower, but nothing like knowing that a comfortable hotel, a good bottle of wine and a pasta dinner were awaiting. The walks were glorious, the scenery stunning and the sense of accomplishment and achievement at the end of each day was a feeling next to none. My favourite town was Bagno Vignoni and I was delighted that we got to stay in the quaint location for 2 nights. Just loved everything about "La Locanda del Loggiato", the scent, the location, the delicious breakfast and resting our weary muscles in the natural warm pools! What a privilege to experience. Thank you to each of you at Girosole, even those behind the scenes for creating such a memorable celebratory time for the 5 “wishing we were younger” girls! Ps can we take Gabriel home with us next time? He was such a delight. Now we can start dreaming of our next walking trip!

I highly recommend Girosole’s self guided walking tour in Tuscany. Tuscany is stunning, the villages beautiful and the accommodations were great. The care and attention provided by the company, specifically Luciano and Gabrielle, both leading up to and during the tour was excellent.

It's hard to decide where to start when describing our wonderful experience on the self-guided hike of Tuscany. It felt like such an adventure the way the trip was structured. Walking the trails and back roads allowed us to experience Tuscany in very intimate way- moving through forests, vineyards and through some of the oldest villages in Italy. The people were warm and welcoming. In one village, a women offered to make us sandwiches for our walk when she heard we had missed lunch. Very, very nice. The hotels were comfortable (select). We awoke everyday to a delicious breakfast which fueled us for our hikes. Our hotel concierges were happy to recommend restaurants and make reservations on our behalf. We also scheduled a cooking class in Bagno Vignoni where we learned to make pici, the pasta local to Tuscany. These lovely ladies also own Villa Pienza which is definitely on our list to visit next trip. We were fortunate to have good weather most of the trip, but on the one day it rained, Gabriel, our tour rep, set up an alternate plan for us. He made reservations for lunch and a tour at Podere il Casale. We enjoyed listening to the stories Sandra, the owner, told us of her family moving to Tuscany and starting this self-sustaining farm. From there, it was onto Pienza and Montepulciano, both towns of which we wished we could have spent more time. Everything we experienced was outstanding and we would 100% book this trip again. My husband and I really enjoyed hiking on our own, so we could take our time and explore the old buildings and churches along the way. This tour company has a five star rating that is well deserved! Luciano was very knowledgeable and helpful, especially in answering questions with regard to travel and documents required during COVID. Everything was so well organized with regard to hiking instructions and coordination with our tour rep, Gabriel. Gabriel made it so easy for us to enjoy ourselves without any worry. Our bags were always waiting for us at the next hotel. He was also great at answering our many questions and gave us information about life in Tuscany, now and then.

We booked Girosole Walking Tours for six days in the Amalfi Coast and were delighted with the hotels and the guides. Luciano was prompt to reply to emails and very knowledgeable about the area. He is based in the States which made it much easier to contact him. Our driver Giovanni was amazing. His driving skills and knowledge of the area and roads was excellent. Our walking guide Florianna was outstanding and always willing to modify the walk if requested. Our group of 4 enjoyed having a driver and guide instead of driving and doing a self- guided tour. We definitely will use Girosole Tours services again. We have already recommended Girosole Tours to one of our friends. We covered a lot of interesting sights in six days. The Walk of the Gods was a highlight. The Isle of Capri was beautiful. We enjoyed all the local restaurants that Giovanni and Florianna recommended. We were glad we used Positano as our base. The Miramare Hotel was right in the heart of town with an amazing view. We went September 20 to the 25, the weather was great and Italy wasn’t crowded at all. We look forward to another Girosole Walking Tour.
