Our guide Sasha was very kind and knowledgable. Our destination spots were all gorgeous, we saw all of the spots that we wanted to see before coming to Italy, so we were very satisfied with the itinerary.

No words can describe this unending daily reveal of stunning scenes – This is a terrific journey into a beautiful part of Italy. Great food/wine and all that contributes to a 10 of a trip! Luca, our guide, was so knowledgeable, interesting and funny. The itinerary was diverse and well-balanced. We loved the pacing of the trip, because we walked a lot each day. Food and wine of course was absolutely incredible, and we were able to try several things we had not had before. We strongly recommend this trip.
