“Perfect experience!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 4, 2013

Alessandra was an amazing tour guide! We had only one day to explore the Tuscan countryside, in fact only 5 hours, and she put together a perfect itinerary for us. First, we went to a small family-run vineyard in Montalcino for some tasty Brunello and an unbelievable snack. The mother of the vineyard prepared a plate of bruschetta, fresh cheeses, prosciutto and other meats for us with olive oil the family grows and makes themselves as well. It was amazing and truly a unique experience! We stopped at one more vineyard before Alessandra took us to the town of Montalcino where we had an hour to walk around. Before leaving us, she showed us a perfect little spot to have a nice lunch. At the end of the day, Alessandra dropped us off in the town of Siena, leaving us with great recommendations of what to see and do in the town.

We did not plan to book Alessandra for a second day but we had such an amazing time with her that we used her for our drive from Siena to Florence. On the way, we were able to stop in San Gimignano for an hour which was such a perfect way to end our experience in the region. Before giving us some time to walk around, Alessandra hooked us up and introduced us to some of her friends who have shops in the adorable town. She even stayed with us for a bit to take some pictures for us with the gorgeous scenery. We would highly recommend Alessandra to anyone who is looking for a guide who is very knowledgeable on the region, very organized, fun to work with and reasonably priced as well!

“Excellent wine and cheese tour of Tuscany”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We are SO glad that we did this tour, highly recommend! We rented a car and spent our first day in Tuscany driving ourselves to do wine tasting in Montalcino. My fiance could not really enjoy the scenery or much of the wine due to his driving responsibilities, so we found this tour company online and booked them that night for the next day. Alessandra was so flexible and so professional. We wanted to see Pienza and Montepulciano, and she tailored our tour to that. She picked us up at our hotel in San Quirico d'Orcia right on time (although I think she can also do pick-ups in Siena and Florence). First we went to Pienza where she dropped us off and gave us about 45 min to wander and explore the town on our own. Next she took us to a cheese farm where we had the most amazing pecorino cheese tasting. And then we went to Montepulciano, where she gave us a quick tour of Contucci winery and then we did a tasting. She is very knowledgeable about the wine and cheese and also about the area in general. She struck the perfect balance of being our tour guide and giving us some time to ourselves throughout the day. It's a little expensive, but the price includes all of the cheese and wine tasting fees. In retrospect, we wish we had skipped the rental car and just taken the train to Siena and used this tour to explore Tuscany. The cost of the tour would have been made up by not renting a car. Highly, highly recommend!

“Top Notch in Every Way!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 21, 2013

From the very start the level of service provided by Alessandra and WTA was top notch! We had a somewhat last minuet booking to workout over email, and Alessandria was extremely attentive and prompt in answering our email questions to make the arrangements.

We had initially just arranged for transfer from Florence, S.M. Novella train station to San Gimignano. However after meeting Alessandra we were so impressed with the level of service that we ended up also scheduling transfer from San Gimignano to Assisi.

The prices offered by WTA are reasonable and certainly worth the level of service provided. I highly recommend WTA and will request Alessandra if we have the opportunity to use their services in the future.

We took a private tour in Tuscany. Amazing Lunch and Wine Tour. Bought a case of wine and had it shipped home. Alessandra is great. She was knowledgeable and has a sense of humor. We so enjoyed out stay and can't wait to do it again. Would recommend her to anyone wanting to have some great wine and fun in Tuscany.

“The only way to tour Tuscany- a personal guide & driver”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

We took a day trip from Florence to Montepulciano. Four of us were picked up at our hotel in Firenze by Michele ...we had an amazing day touring Tuscany and out outstanding lunch overlooking Montepulciano. He even dropped us off at the train station in Chiusi to head down to Rome. Could not have asked for a more insightful and friendly individual. I am sure he will not forget this group of :"Sheep Squeezers". The highlight of our trip was this outing....only wish we could have stayed longer and highly recommend Michele as your personal guide
