We were on a cruise that departed from Rome on November 1, 2014. On the recommendation of a friend, we were pointed in the direction of Maurizio from Tuscany Taste Tour. We made arrangements for one of his drivers to pick us up at the airport (we were 5 adults), drop off our luggage at our hotel, and start touring Rome. The driver was patiently waiting for us at the airport (took a while to get through customs and retrieve our bags). He introduced himself, lead us to his impeccably clean van and the trip began! Our driver (I believe his name was Christiano), supplied bottled water and some Italian candy during the drive. He proved to be a wonderfully knowledgeable guide and our visit to all the major sites in Rome was a great start to a memorable vacation. A few days later, we once again used Tuscany Taste Tour for a day in Tuscany. Maurizio (with whom I had communicated several times before arriving in Italy and he was always most helpful and responsive) was to be our guide fo the day. In addition to being very easy on the eyes :), he welcomed us like we were family. We visited some shops along the way, had a wonderful wine tasting at a lovely winery, but the real highlight of the day was our lunch at Stefania's. The food and wine was flowing and our lovely host, Stefania, could not have provided more beautiful memories of her home. I have never tasted such mouth-watering food (and I'm of Italian descent), all homemade by Stefania in her kitchen (her home is a 12th century farmhouse, rustic, but beautiful and cozy). I give Tuscany Taste Tour, and specifically Maurizio, a big thank you for making our trip to Italy so special. We loved it so much, we've already booked again for next year! Don't go anywhere else if you want to tour Italy! You will get the best service ever!!!!
