We had a wonderful day with our guide Sylvia .It turned out to just be our family of three on the tour through the Tuscan countryside, and I am very thankful Viator didn't cancel the tour because they couldn't fill the group...just for that alone I would book with them again!
The comfort of the van on a very hot August day was so welcome. The drive through Tuscany was beautiful and the photos stops to San Gimignano and Volterra great. The best was the lunch at a Tuscan farmhouse hosted by the owner Carmela and her husband....it was the very best meal yet in Italy and all made by hand with products from their farm including the olive oil and saffron. Our granddaughter still raves about the pecorino cheese and pear strudel Carmela made.
I cannot say enough nice things about this trip, only that it was the high lite of our trip through Italy.
Thanks Viator Italy, and Sylvia for this amazing day.
Another Viator/Tuscan Escapes winner! Samayo was not your ordinary tour guide. A man of few words but with thoughtful insights. It was a pleasure to "journey" with him on this day. The towns of San Gimignano and Volterra were an excellent juxtaposition, the first a touristic gem, the second an undiscovered refuge. The highlights were the visit to the Alabaster workshop - the dying exercise of craftsmanship is still very much alive at alab'Arte. We recomment you purchase the piece produced before your eyes. A true memento of art and beauty. And the second highlight was to the local Bio-farm where a delicious lunch was lovingly prepared by the husband and wife. Another true exercise of passion and devotion. A culinary AND learning experience. DO NOT MISS THIS TOUR!!
Oh yes, the destinations we were taken to were really nice.
But what made the tour SPECTACULAR was Azura, our guide. Not only was she a incredibly pleasant person to be with, she was informative, and very organized and timely.
If we knew we could have her to be our tour guide again, we would certainly sign up for another one. Next time we go, we will ask for her. Your organization is lucky to have her. Please give her our best regards!!

Milo, our tour guide, was superb - knowledgeable, entertaining and personable. He took us to a 3rd hill town and we still had more than enough time to visit San Gimignano and Volterra. Lunch at the agriturismo was excellent. This was absolutely the best tour I took in the month I spent in Italy. I recommend it whole heartily.
