Not a tour but an unforgettable experience of Tuscany
I was travelling with my daughter & this was a highlight of our trip. The horse ride through Tuscany on a crisp, sunny morning in late Autumn was stunning, followed by a trip to the incredible San Gimignano & a delicious lunch on an even more beautiful vineyard.
The vespa tour was an absolute blast. Unfortunately the equipment supplied to Fun in Tuscany by a third party was not the most reliable, however, the scenery and ride was worth any trouble that may have been caused by said equipment.
Wow! What a wonderful experience! Our tour guide Christian was so much fun and welcoming, and the wine and lunch was amazing! Riding through the Tuscan countryside was beautiful, and our time at San Gimignano was so special. This was the highlight of my trip, and I could not recommend it more!
This blew my expectations out of the water. The guide made the travel between sites fun and educational. The wine tours were amazing and the stop in San Gimignano was awesome. We went for our honeymoon and the guide even threw in a surprise for my wife and I at the end of the tour. Would 100% recommend to others!
