client reviews for la Dolce Toscana


Thanks for the wonderful experience - we shall return!

Tracy planned a wonderful trip for our group of 9 to Tuscany. Lots of questions were put forth prior to departure to ensure a fully customized experience. All the various interests of the group were covered. The villa that we ended up booking was fantastic, and no detail was too small. She facilitated the booking process making it a seamless experience. She even made sure the groundskeeper was aware of our needs.
On our daytrips out from our base of Radda, Tracy made great suggestions for places to go and things to see. San Gimignano was a highlight as was Montalcino. Our favorite little trip was a drive through Pienza for lunch followed by Brunello tastings just around Montalcino. All her suggestions were spot on for quality. Tracy is the perfect guide for much of our culinary adventures, from dining out to hiring the right private chef for our in-villa dinners, to arranging for the perfect cooking class with wine/balsamic/truffle tasting - her ideas are vast and would please the most discerning traveler.
As our trip ended in Florence, Tracy found a great B&B for our group that was within a stone's throw from the Duomo. Rates were very reasonable for the quality. By that point of our trip, everyone had nothing but praise for the great job Tracy did for us. Whether you are a first time visitor or a repeat visitor to the Chianti region with specific ideas of what you would like to do, Tracy is the right planner for it all.
Thanks for the wonderful experience - we shall return!
