Perfecto para saborear un poco de la Toscana.

Todo fue bien, pero indudablemente se necesita más tiempo para ver estos preciosos lugares con más detenimiento. La colegiata en San Gimignano es una maravilla.

A well organised and presented trip. Tour leader, Brando, is friendly, has a good sense of humor - an enjoyable experience.

This trip was well organised - everything was on time and according to plan. Brando, the tour leader is friendly, has a good sense of humour and is very knowledgeable. The bus trip was comfortable and the driver was friendly and a real good driver. The visit to the winery was great and the lunch was very good. Thanks for a great day in beautiful surroundings - one of the highlights of our 4 week trip in Italy.
