“Perfetto aka perfect”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Christian was the perfect guide.The pace was relaxec with plenty of time to see everything.
We spent one day in the Montelcino area with a Brunello wine tour at a unique eco winery.We toured small little villages and large towns.the second day we explored the Chianti area with another winery and exploration of unique and charming villages and towns. the contrast in geography, landscape and wines made from similar features was enlightening. Christians English is excellent and his knowledge and love of the region and wine production make this a fabulous experience. I highly recommend him and look forward to coming back and visiting new areas with him

“Wine Tour of Chianti Region”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 17, 2013

Azzura and Matteo lead us on a fantastic day of wine tasting and visiting medieval villages. We had a large group of 3 families comprised of parents and teenagers. Azzura was able to customize our trip to suit our group. We all enjoyed discovering some of the hidden ancient cities of the area as well as some of the most popular stops. We visited a local winery and our "kids" were thrilled with the adult experience. The highlight of our trip was a visiting a local winery run by a family. We were served a beautiful lunch in their home and learned all about the business of making wine (and olive oil and cosmetics). We all felt like it was such a personal experience that could not be duplicated. Azzura is an energetic and enthusiastic young woman who is doing a terrific job of running her business. We would love to return to the area and explore other regions with her. We are delighted to recommend Viaggi d' Ambra for your Tuscan tours!

We had an absolutely fantastic day with Christian, seeing the sights and tasting the magnificent Brunellos of Montalcino. This is a no brainer - if you're considering doing a tour like this, they are fantastic!

“exceptional service, what an experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Our (rather large) family recently engaged Christian and Azzurra from Viaggi d'Ambra to show us the highlights of Tuscany. We enjoyed day trips to Sienna and Montepulciano, tours of vineyards and a delightful lunch at an organic farm that makes all it's own food, cheese and wine.

Both Christian and Azzurra were excellent - they took the time to understand our interests and created a bespoke experience that far exceeded our expectations.

I can't wait to go back again!

“Terrific Guides”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 21, 2013

Azurra and Christian arranged 2 tours for us in Tuscany, one to Sienna and one to wineries in Southern Tuscany. Both were excellent. Their knowledge of the area made it come to life and everything they recommended was perfect. They also arranged a tour guide in Sienna who was absolutely superb, she showed us parts of the city we had never seen beofre and made the experience very interesting for the 5 children with us. Christian knows his food and wine and knows the best restaraunts to visit, so just ask him where to go if you want to enjoy the wonderful Tuscan food and wine. I can not recommend they highly enough, they will make sure that your visit to Tuscany is one to remember.
