Traveling to two mountain villages in Tuscany gave me a flavor of old Italy. Our guide was excellent and gave personal attention to any concerns of her visitors. Restaurant hoteliers were not friendly and came across as we were a bother. Also, dessert, sodas were extra costs. Not acceptable.Reviewed by: Katherine G, November 2013
Excellent trip Stephen was wonderful. Really glad we picked this trip it was a very relaxing day out of Rome and let us experience the flavor of Tuscany.Reviewed by: LORIE T, July 2013
This tour was not at all what we expected. This is more like a bus ride to Cortona and Montepulciano, with not so good food samples. My husband and I made the most of it, because we were already there but in hindsight, we should have enjoyed our last day in Rome walking around. There was no food tour. It was just a sampling at the restuarant prior to lunch, with three pieces of bruschetta, a piece of cheese, and a tiny glass of wine. If you're looking for a food tour then I would recommend the Rome Food Walking Tour. The wine stop in Montepulciano was a brief 30 mins. Overall this was not worth the time or money.Reviewed by: Michelle L, October 2013
It was terrible. And certainly not a Food Tour. The food was mediocre and a very small portion. I fully expected better. A change of restaurants might help liven up this tour and give more variety. I think it would help if more than one eating establishment was provided..Reviewed by: Richard B, May 2013
After initially booking the excursion, we then had great difficulty ascertaining the "password" to access further information.
As for the tour itself, well this never happened as apparently according to your PR dept, that it was "Too early in the season and insufficient demand ". To which my question would be, if this is the case why is it advertised.
In summary... A great disappointment.
