Tour: #163946, full day wine tour, Siena, Tuscany, Italy    
Date: Jun 2/18

We spent the day with Silvia last week when we were in Tuscany. She picked us up at our villa and drove us to taste wine. It was a great day - two wineries - and lunch at the second one. Lunch was outside next to the vineyard. The food was amazing. Wish I could go back today. This is the second time that I used Silvia. I used her two years ago and she did an amazing job. I contacted her this time and she was available. She made a perfect day for us. Thanks Silvia - hope to see u soon!!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Lori, Thank you for the kind note! Hope to see you soon too :-) Wait you here in Tuscany. Ciao Silvia

Silvia did an excellent job with our tour! She picked us up right on time in our hotel lobby with only a short walk to the van. We toured two wonderful towns, San Gimignano and Monteriggioni in the morning. Silvia did a wonderful job of explaining the history of the towns then letting us do some exploring on our own. Lunch was served at a wonderful winery in hills. The food and wine were excellent along with the charming couple who owned the winery. It was a long but enjoyable day. Thanks Silvia.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Lisa, thanks for your kind note! hope to meet you again in the future. ciao Silvia

Silvia is an absolute delight! She picked us up in her beautiful van for our 8 guests and drove us safely and with such interesting stories to San Gimignano for the long ride below Siena. She then toured us through the charming city with wonderful details and good information. Our time that she arranged at the saffron farm for lunch was a HIGHLIGHT of our trip. We had a wonderful time. Thank you, Silvia!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Stacey, thank you for your kind note, i also had a good time with you and your group. see you next time:-) ciao Silvia

We had a great time with Silvia who took us to a dairy farm for sheep cheese tasting, Pienza and Multacino along with two wineries. She was knowledgeable and gave us great insights into each town and place. We would not have learned so much if it wasn't for Silvia. We had an amazing day with her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sara, Thank you for your kind note! Hope to meet you again in the future.. Ciao Silvia

Silvia took my wife and I around the hills of Tuscany for an 8 hour tour. She picked us up right on time and we visited Montepulciano, Pienza, Montalcino and had lunch at a beautiful winery. Along the way and at every stop she had great information about the locations, history, etc. Besides the details and the planned part of the tour; Silvia is a very nice lady who is extremely personable, we thoroughly enjoyed her company all day. Thanks Silvia, hope to see you again some day. Ciao!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear David, thank you for your kind note and for the good company:-) hope to have the opportunity of meeting you again in the future. warm regards Silvia

Silvia was delightful and very informative. Our party of 4 enjoyed our 8 hour day touring Siena and the surrounding area, including Monteriggioni. You don't want to miss seeing this most beautiful and historic part of Tuscany. We especially appreciated Silvia's kindness and patience in helping one slow poke in the group. Her modern, comfy van was a huge plus in transporting long tall Texans! Bravo Silvia!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Gail, thank you for your kind note. It has been a plesure meeting you...you are a nice company... enjoy the rest of your vacation... big hug Silvia

Wow Silvia is amazing. Her customer service was far beyond what she signed up for. We customized our tour to go to two winery's and than to go to the fort. When arriving at the first winery we discovered we left our passports and money in the hotel safe. She coordinated with the hotel and even went back in a storm to retrieve our items while we were at the second winery. She is amazing we highly recommend her for any tour you would like to go on.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary, it has been a pleasure meeting you and your frieds. Hope to see you again in the future. ciao Silvia

Silvia is the best guide! We booked five separate day tours with her, so we will be submitting this review for all five of them. We asked for specific things on our tours, mostly out of the way places that tourists typically don't see. She constantly amazed us at how well she had planned everything, how she anticipated our needs, and how perfectly she matched our requests with the places she planned for us to see. We were so sad to finally have to say goodbye to her!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: dear Dawn and Ross, it was a pleasure spending my time with you, i have great memories of you! big warm hug to you both ciao Silvia

Silva was a joy for a tour guide and a perfect fit for our family. Friendly and engaging she really knows how to get it done. We had a great day with her and she planned a full, fun day in Tuscany. If you get a chance, make sure she books you a lunch a the vineyard she knows.

Then authentic lunch at Peccorino producing farm. Then to a picturesque Montepulciano nearby. Toured town, church, monuments & a Vin Nobile winery with deep caves dating to Etruscan times. Tasted & bought a case to be shipped home. Then drove back to Montereggioni enjoying picture perfect Tuscany, Highest Recommendations !!!
