Owner description: It’s very easy to find tours of Tuscany and Siena, but if you want to learn about the real Tuscany and not skim the surface, come and see us. We can take you where no-one else can….discover places not on the normal tourist route and really feel the atmosphere with helpful and friendly local guides. We can personalize your tour for you….JUST ASK US! Unlike other companies there are no “set” prices, we work with you to suit your budget giving you value for money on your own personal tour. Travelling doesn’t mean only visiting a new place, it embraces the emotions we feel and the memories we bring back…. So, what’s better than going to taste red wines, extra virgin olive oil, pecorino cheese and seeing nice little towns and breathtaking views? But we intent to show you much more than this….please look at our suggestions!

My husband and I booked Paola for a private tour for mid June to the wine country. Paola was accommodating and flexible and always returned my email questions. We appreciated that she was flexible enough to be able to collect us at our hotel in Siena and return us to our hotel in Florence at the end of the day. For our tour she had a full day planned for us to see and experience 2 different wineries in Chianti where we had tastings of wine, olive oil, vinegars and a full lunch. She also took us to 2 different charming little towns and let us explore independently during the day. Paola gave us some history of wines, the countryside and clarified the significance of the "Rooster". Her communication skills were great. She was funny, informative and engaging. By the end of our trip we felt like we made a friend. I wish we would have had more time to book an additional day with her.
Great value; lots of fun!

We booked Paola for 2 days in early July. She was fabulous! She picked us up at our hotel and had amazing things planned. She took us to amazing wineries, arranged a
Tour of Siena and was a great and professional driver. She also took us to amazing remote towns. She was the highlight of our tuscany trip and so knowledgeable. We loved her and can't wait to return to use her again!

Last week a friend and I had the pleasure of taking a full day tour in Tuscany with Paola. It was an amazing day with stops in Pienza and Montepulciano. We visited a cheese farm and a winery for lunch and tastings. What a wonderful day! Paola is knowledgable, pleasant and patient. She let us explore both towns for a while on our own which was fabulous. We felt like we knew her forever. The next time I'm in Tuscany, I will be seeing her again!

We attended the Brunello wine tour, hosted by the lovely Paola. She was very accommodating to begin, agreeing to pick our friends up from the train station (and also dropped them back in the evening).

The selection of wineries was perfect, 3 boutique, family run wineries of different sizes. The staff of which were very inviting and friendly, welcoming us into their wineries and their homes.

Paola made sure we had a base knowledge of the wine before venturing into the wineries.

We were taken aback at the generous amount of food on offer at each of the wineries, as well as the multiple tasting of the wines. The lunch, at the second winery was also delicious and plentiful.

We could not have asked for a better experience.

Thank you Paola!

We did a half day wine tour in Siena and couldn't have asked for a more perfect day. Paola was a fantastic host and planned a perfect day. She was easy to get along with and very knowledgeable of the area as well as the history. Paola was easy to accommodate to our wants and was happy to stop for photo opportunities. It was clear that she had planned the day based on our first request and did not take us to unwanted places. She also fitted in a visit to Monteriggiorni which was a cute little town set up on a hill with great views. Overall it was an amazing day and would recommend this tour to anybody. Both the wineries were fantastic and provided an intimate, passionate and in depth tour and talk about their winery and their products. It was amazing to experience the passion of Marco at the winery who had wines with flavour that matched his level of passion and had great food testers to accompany. The second winery we had an delicious lunch made from their own products and a good tour of the wine and balsamic cellar (their 30 year old balsamic put a whole new perspective on my view of balsamic vinegar. As you can see, we cannot say enough in praise of Paola and her organised tour, we could talk for hours about this - we also ran overtime by 45 minutes which Paola did not seem to flinch over.
