    The rolling hills, the delicious food, the best bus driver, the amazing local guides, and the very best Tour Manager Dario, who went above and beyond for the entire tour., he is friendly, accessible, engaging and just an all around great source of knowledge about local culture. We stayed at an amazing hotel, and I had a terrace overlooking the golden Tuscan sunset. Thank you for this experience. It was perfect from start to finish.

    Our tour manager, Ellenora exceeded all our expectations. She is a great communicator and has more energy than the Energizer Bunny. However, the curriculum of the tour put too much emphasis on the history of the places we visited at the expense of helping us learn about modern day Tuscany. I'd like to know more about the economy of the area, how it is governed, and how education and healthcare are organized

    I live in Sacramento and my flights were out of San Francisco. There was a flight out of Atlanta to Sacramento. At least 25 hours of travel time on flights or in airports, plus two hour ride to and from SMF. Another person who lives close to me flew out of SMF! Food at hotel left a little to be desired. Coffee machines did not provide the best results. No laundry charge list was left in our room. It was difficult to use the safe. which was located on the floor of the closet and in a dark corner. Not all staff were cordial. No posted signs of operation for the bar or restaurant. Maid service minimal.

He had the necessary tickets and passes, so that our experience at each town was seamless without concern of missing a bus or train. Each local guide was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic that I felt I appreciated the history and uniqueness of each town more. This was certainly a memorable trip in the very best way.

    It was a busy busy vacation. Not much downtime to rest and explore the area we were in. Didn't care for the early morning departures. Anything 8:00 a.m. and after would have been better. I love touring and seeing it all but in my opinion the tour to Pisa, outside of seeing Pisa, was a waste of time. An hour would have been sufficient as there is nothing else there. A coastal tour would have been great as I understand we were near the sea.

    The tour experience overall was excellent. My only complaint is that we were told to buy COVID tests to use before we could return. I got extras in case something didn't work. I was left with $75 worth of COVID tests and also paid to have one done onsite. Our guide actually told us that they had been doing the onsite tests for awhile. My suspicion is that we were sent outdated paperwork. That is something that could be avoided.

It impressed me that people live in constantly uphill towns and embrace the natural lay of the land. The history of feuding between towns and eventual unification was something I didn't know about Tuscany. Beautiful scenery could be found even while driving down the highways.

Hard to pick a favorite because I loved it all - the cooking class was the most fun, Loved Lucca and Sienna (smaller towns - less people) the Cinque Terra trip was memorable because of the frenzie of the train travel....too many people for me and only saw 2 of the 5 villages. Florence would have liked to have seen other museums and the Porta Vecchio bridge - but too many people....The business class upgrade opportunity was wonderful and I would do that again.

    As for my overall experience, I was very disappointed. When I booked this tour, I believed the group size was only 24 people and that they would all be seniors. Instead you added more groups so there were over 40 people. That size is way too big! Also, in trying to find a hotel to accommodate that many people led to a substandard room. We had to stay for 8 days in a room that was horrible! The shower was LITERALLY 2 feet by 2 feet. I could not bend to get everything washed. This is not acceptable for a senior person. In addition, our room was on the street side where there were 2 restaurants that played loud music until late in the night. Horrible experience. Unfortunately, this overshadowed all the wonderful things that I experienced.

    Again, not impressed with the tour manager. Missed several items on the tour that had been advertised as doing. The leather shop was closed since we went on Saturday. We didn't get to have the tour by boat to Cinque Terme since the weather was bad in the morning - should have delayed it by a few hours and didn't get to have the stop for appetizers and drinks as advertised. The tour manager was not flexible to adjust with weather when we could have had free time in the morning instead of the evening. He rushed us all the time on tour threatening not to give us a bathroom break. There were many things on the tour he should've told us that we had to find out on our on after the fact such as we could have used our train ticket to use the bathroom for free and we could have used the ticket for the cathedral to climb the tower for free. We were rushed through our end of tour dinner. He was in a hurry to get to his vacation with "friends". He didn't help anyone off the bus or get bags. He had us load our bags on the bus to depart. The hotel was ok. The water in the shower was either scalding or freezing. The food was ok for breakfast - same stuff everyday. The welcome dinner was poor. The tour day for Cinque Terme should have been included in the tour not an add on since there was nothing else scheduled for the day - just had to pay more!

    Every stop on the Tuscany tour had something to recommend it. It is difficult to select a single memorable experience. But I think that serendipitously running into a parade of folks from each contrada, dressed in their medieval garb, waving their flags and beating their drums in the city of Siena was thrilling.

    I was very upset on how long the layover while going to Italy in Atlanta was unacceptable. Some in our group was on a flight which left a lot earlier. We booked this trip over a year in advance. To me that is unacceptable. Then in Paris another long layover. Seems like you treated us like 3rd class citizens. We ALL should have been on the layover that was less than 2 hours in Atlanta. The brochure for the option Rome at night was not what was described. Luckily, Ciblia mentioned it was a meal and entertainment, no lights by night We were able to cancel; however, it was not what was advertised.

    Really would be 4.5. There was some confusion, more than once, on details in itinerary package we received vs. actuality. one example was that we signed up for "Rome at Night" that said there would be a panoramic night tour of Rome. That morning we were told that that would not be included in the evening out, which was the main reason we signed up. We were told we could opt out and get reimbursed. Hopefully we will get reimbursed! Also, 5 1/2 hour layover in Paris was brutal, after a 3 1/2 hr layover in ATL. We had more layover time than flight time! Highlights were Cinqueterra tour, Roman Coloseum, Vatican, Pisa.

    Each day was a new adventure. I couldn't believe I was really standing in front of THE David and wandering around Florence! The next day was a visit to the medieval village of Lucca and a tour of Puccini's apartment,then on to a WW II historical site. One day we took a short train ride to the Cinque Terre and walked around two villages. And on the ride to the train saw stacks of Carrara marble waiting for shipment and the mountains where Carrara marble comes from. We toured Pisa and took pictures of each other trying to push it upright! Also, we had several delicious meals in the country and even made our own pasta! What a fun way to get to know our fellow travelers. Very enjoyable.

    I loved the variety of places. it enabled us to see where we will be returning. I do not like the shortness of being in each place and missing out on many lovely things. The hotel dinner food was awful as well as the last night's meal location. The farm to table and cheese farm were amazing, so these others did not quite fit. As we were a foodie group traveling with our local chef, we expected the food to be stellar. We loved Lucca. Hated Pisa, too crowded and touristy. Florence needs at least 2 days and dinner there. Food is much more well known there. Winery did not live up to hype. it was not very good. We had much better at the local bars we went to. Cinque was lovely. The restaurant the guides suggested here was probably one of our favorites.
