So pleased we took this tour. Capalbio is a little gem of a place - authentic Tuscan walled town and not inhabited by herds of tourists- just beautiful ancient buildings and Tuscan hills. A very special 3 course lunch included at a place the locals go- Then afternoon at the magical Tarot gardens. So worth a visit - kids would love it - even grown up ones - for a place that has soul and mystery and surprises and beauty . Our guides Andreas and Maria were so informative and very good company. A perfect day out in Tuscany and not exhausting like the big cities.

Absolutely wonderful day! Our guide, Andrea, was personable and tailored our full day private tour to our wishes. We were picked up on time directly from our hotel. No problems whatsoever during the entire trip. We were able to enjoy far more unique sites in central Italy than if we had attempted to do this on our own with a rental car.

Our driver was excellent. He knew the city very well; he gave us excellent suggestions and convenient pickup and drop off locations. The vehicle was clean and safe. We saw more things in Rome than we could have on a tour.

We were picked up on time from the ship and driven through Rome by a competent young man. We were able to see all the promised sights with sufficient time.

Our guide Maks was excellent. This is the best excursion ever!
