It was a day full of wonderful experiences! Our guide Andrea was so knowledgeable and helped us immerse in history of Tuscany and Rome! We had some great tour with a local guide in Montepulciano, tasty lunch and wine tasting in a local winery and great free time in Pienza. Highly recommend!

I can really recommend this day trip. Our guide Andrea gave us excellent information in an interesting way about history of Technology Italy and the in Tuscanny. The landscape is marvellous, so was the food and wine. Good mixture of walking and relaxing.

Francesca taught me so much on this walking tour. A real local with lots of stories, she made it a fascinating tour. Fifth time in Rome for me but this tour showed me a very different side of Rome.

Great tour! Our tour guide Francesca was amazing and knowledgeable about the history of the colosseum and forum. Would definitely recommend a small private tour.

Easy to meeting point, great guide (Jon), lunch was excellent, wine excellent ( my only gripe was small amounts) but great quality.
