Timothy DelormFishkill, NEW YORK, United States
We took a whirl-wind tour of Tuscany. Picked up at our flat, we headed for the countryside. Simonida provided non-stop information about Florence & the countryside. Our 1st stop was San Gimignano, the medieval hill town of 14 towers. We enjoyed learning how the servants & nobility lived daily life as well as the description of the church's frescos! Later at Poggio amorelli winery, our host regaled us with stories while we enjoy lovely wines! Grazie mille Simonida - Tim, Betsie, Will & Emma

As we drove the Tuscany countryside from Florence we were taken back in time of the area by Simonida's excitement and expertise of its history.My husband, who is a WWII history buff, was excited and saddened to see and hear about the sites that were "real".Driving the winding roads of cypress trees and vineyards was picture perfect.We visited a winery and the historic city of San Gimignano enjoying a lovely lunch and strolling the quaint streets.We had a memorable day thanks to the friendship of Simonida!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mrs Mary - Jane, I 'm so greatful to you and your husbant for this nice review. I'm so happy that I made this tour so lovely and that you have nice memories of Tuscany.

Simonida was an excellent guide, flexible and accommodating, and seemingly knowing what we wanted before we did. We had various choices to make during the day and every decision was spot on from the right route to take, to the perfect winery to visit, to the type of restaurant we wanted. I would highly recommend Simonida for your tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for such a nice rating. It was pleasure to do this tour with your family. All the best and wish you to come back soon to visit our Tuscany and Florence again. Best regards,Simonida

We so enjoyed our tour of Siena's highlights, as well as favorite parts of San Gimignano given by Simonida!! She shared so many interesting stories and information about these beautiful areas. My husband & I walked away feeling this tour was worth every penny. She is very professional and personable! We got to go to a wine bar, have some wine and cheese, and meet some local people. It was such a nice touch! She was kind enough to drive us to our villa in Cortona afterwards too. We highly recommend her!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much dear Kathleen and Mark. It was a lovely day and I truly enjoyed your company. So glad that you liked the tour. Lot of greetings from Tuscany and all the best to you and your friends from Cortona's forest house :-) Simonida
