A Recent Review of this tour

Massimo is the best tour guide we have ever had in all of our extensive world travels. He was incredibly responsive to our emails before we arrived in Livorno, and the Tuscan truffle hunt and lunch was absolutely amazing. The six of us agree that it will likely be the most memorable day of our week long trip. We highly recommend Massimo for any tour or cooking class as this was such a truly amazing experience which we will all remember and talk about for years to come. Thank you Massimo!
