Our driver, Patrick, was fun and very attentive to our needs meeting high expectations from the age range within our small group. He took care to ensure we were well taken care of, sharing beautiful sites, and great recommendations to sit down and relax enjoying the tastes found in Tuscany. My teenage daughter was so excited Patrick went above and beyond to help her find the film sites from one of her favorite movies, Twilight. It was a fun adventure, peaceful, and we had a very lovely time. I strongly recommend anyone wanting an escape from the busy cities to escape on this tour to enjoy incredible scenery at a slower pace in Tuscany with Patrick. Thank you for such a wonderful time which ended our trip on a high note!

We were going to leave this off the itinerary, but timewise it worked out and very glad it did. The tour was extended by one hour (no problem with that, usually the opposite) and our tour guide (sorry, forgot her name) was excellent. The pace was not too fast, not too slow, but the information was great. There was a mix of history related to the castle and the items we were seeing and experiencing. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire visit.

Amazing tour! Excellent guide! Unmissable tour for first timers in Rome! Definitely 5 starts

If you’re going to choose one tour in Rome, choose this one.
