Fantastic Tour of Tuscany

We had an amazing time travelling to the lovely cities/towns of Monteriggioni, San Gimignano and Volterra while admiring the beautiful country side of Tuscany. Leah, our guide, was extremely friendly and possessed a wealth of knowledge of the history and details of the area. The lunch at the local farm was a delight as the homemade food was delicious and the host very friendly. A charming and magical day - highly recommended!
