Thank you for everything! You guys were so knowledgeable of the area and it made the trip so much easier to have a friend on the ground. We were lucky to have you scope out the villas and to make suggestions on everything. The recommendations were spot on. The trip was amazing. It was the perfect trip to celebrate our milestone birthdays and 10th wedding anniversary. Thank you for helping to make memories that will last a lifetime.
We LOVED our wine-tasting experience. We weren't sure what to expect but the owner is awesome and amazing. The property had animals that the kids loved. The food was great. But it was the hospitality of the owner that was unmatched. We loved the small family owned feel. The wine was also great and everyone bought something. We LOVED that we were able to see/hear/learn about the balsamic vinegar process making too. We also tasted the vinegars which we liked because we have done wine tastings but never vinegar tastings!
We loved the cheese farm. The tour was fantastic and seeing the HUNDREDS of sheep really blew us all away. The sheep dogs even "herded" the toddlers which we thought was hilarious although the tots had the look of terror in their faces. It was a great day trip. We REALLY enjoyed this day.
Everyone thought it was a GREAT idea to ride in the mini bus for the Chianti day. I would recommend that approach to all visiting. We loved our driver....he was extremely helpful, nice and professional. He had all sorts of music and we played old school hiphop in our mini-bus and had a blast :)
There is no way someone completely new to Tuscany can do Tuscany without La Dolce Toscana's expertise!
