Great Tour! We were considering staying a couple days in Cinque Terre, but decided to base ourselved in Florence and take this tour - it was the Right Desicison! Although the day is long (8AM-9PM), it was comfortable, not rushed and enjoyable.

The tour was by WalkAboutTours and our guides Freddy and Sandra were the BEST! Although the bus was full (maybe 50-60 of us) we were treated like VIP's the entire trip. The information was well presented and interesting. Special needs were taken into consideration without judgement or fuss.

The day involves a lot of walking on steep stairs and uneven trails, so this is not for anyone not in good health or wearing high heels (someone was!). It is a wonderful combination of trails, trains and even a boat ride between the charming towns nestled along the Sea.

The lunch was good and there was just the right combination of touring as a group and for free time to take a coffee, wine, shop or just relax on a park bench.

One of our favorite tours in Italy!

In Florence for a few days with my husband and our 21 yr old son, we were looking for an activity to appeal to all ages. First of all, our guide Sandra was a doll! We started in Sienna with a short tour by a local guide, then had some free time. The town was charming, the tour a little longer than it needed to be. There happened to be chocolate festival going on in the square which was a nice bonus. Then to lunch at a winery/ farm in Chianti, all homemade ingredients, delicious and more than plentiful servings of pasta, salad with cold cuts, biscotti, and lots of wine. Next was San Gimignano, a historic little sleepy village followed but a trip to the Leaning Tower of Pisa. So tacky and touristy, yet so much fun! In all the trip was about 10 hours so you really get your money's worth in terms of both time as well as entertainment.

Yesterday we did the Best Of Tuscany tour with Elisa, and of course Sergio who drove us very safely all day in the beautiful coach. It was the most wonderful day and we are still smiling. Eisa made us feel welcome and right at home at the first hello, before we even boarded the bus. We loved every moment of the day. They were also very accommodating of Tif's gluten free needs at lunch- awesome lunch by the way- wow. Everyone who visits Florence MUST spend a day doing this. Top Shelf people and top shelf tour. Elisa, you rock!

Olivia was knowledgeable and entertaining. Transportation was comfortable and timely. Uri was an excellent driver and provider of water. This was an all day tour and four places was almost too much to see in one day. We would have liked to spend more time at the sites..
