We have lived a fantastic day. Nice guys conducted us around the Tuscany for a really Italian experience. The wines were excellent. It has been the italian day that we always imagined.
We have also appreciated the punctuality: the van was in front of the ship at our arrive and we returned to the ship timely for the departure. They are really professional and reliable.
