A Recent Review of this tour

Where to begin! Massimo was just a delight! We emailed numerous times before our adventure. He gave me great information and I felt no pressure to book with him but am so thankful I did!! He was so full of great information and great stories!!! The Villa he took us to was so perfect- Alesso and his family along with Danielli and Patso ( hunter and dog) were so gracious and funny and warm- the food they made- delish!! Highly recommend this exquisite experience!
