Delight in beautiful Tuscany!

If you want to experience for yourself why Tuscany is the most appreciated and talked about part of Italy then join us for one our wonderful small group tours to Tuscany. Only with a small group guided tour of Tuscany is it possible to really experience those out of the way places that are so difficult to encounter with a larger group.  Our intimate small hotels and charming local guides allow us to discover the Tuscany of colourful beauty, delicious flavours and amazingly warm characters.

We meet in the very centre of Tuscany, Florence where Michelangelo and Leonardo Da Vinci once called home.  We discover the delights of the Uffizi, home to the best Renaissance art, gaze into the eyes of David and savour the delicious food.  We will meet local winemakers, cheese producers and those who make the scrumptious olive oil.  We shop for leather in the markets in Florence and search for that perfect ceramic plate in San Gimignano.  This tour is a great mix of history, culture, small family run wineries, wonderful characters, charming hotels and Tuscan hill towns. Join us on a delightful small group tour of Tuscany!

Our itineraries are carefully planned and well thought out but touring Italy can sometimes offer wonderful surprises. The magic of travelling in such a small group in Tuscany allows us to cater for this spontaneity and it is sometimes these unplanned occurrences that can be the most memorable. The rich tapestry of experiences and the characters you meet along the way will make this tour of Italy something special.
