“Cinque Terre Trek”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

Julian was our guide. While the trip would have earned 4 on a scale of 5, Julian is responsible for making it a 10! The trip was very well planned and paced, an excellent value, and we had such a neat cross section of travelers in our group. Cinque Terre was a dream trip for my husband and me and this was the perfect way to experience it. Julian was very knowledgeable and, being half American, his English is excellent. He told us the history of where we were and what we saw, but also shared personal favorites (gelato shop in Vernazza, for example) and little nuances that other guides would not have. We have already recommended this exact tour to several friends--we were there on April 26. I can't say enough how fantastic this is. BOOK IT! if you read this, trust me.

“Great tour. Great tour leader”
Reviewed 17 June 2014 via mobile

We had a wonderful day with Olivia from Walk About Tuscany. It started to rain during our tour but it did not damp our spirit. A very long day but definitely worthwhile.

“The highlight of our trip to Italy!”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Absolutely loved our "Best of Tuscany" tour with Sandra. She was so lovely and friendly, very knowledgeable about all of the towns and places we visited, and really caring.
The tour was fantastic, great to get out of the major towns and see some of the Tuscan countryside. Lunch at the farmyard/winery was a true Italian feast, with more food and wine than we could handle! And so lovely to have the time to be able to wander around the streets and laneways of all the small medieval towns. Would highly, highly recommend!

Reviewed 16 June 2014

This is the second time booked a day tour to Tuscany. This trip is memorable all thanks to Stephano. He is knowledgable and patient. I have done quite a few day trip with others travel agency, but Stephano is very sincere and passionate about his job, we enjoy a lot, at the end of the trip, he went to everyone on the bus to answer all questions we have. Meal in organic farm was ok.

“Walkabout Florence - Best of Tuscany Tour”
Reviewed 16 June 2014

Being our first visit to Florence & Italy, we were apprehensive about what we would find in terms of tours, especially as we were booking online. However, I have to say that the Walkabout Florence - Best of Tuscany Tour on 10 June, exceeded our expectation in all respects - Experience, Value & Content - and left us all with a big smile! :-)
Everything was professional, right from the online booking via Isango.com. We had one last minute cancellation out of our group of 5, which was refunded to us. The Tour guides were easy to find at the venue and they were punctual! The Bus we had was comfortable and we had a great driver in Salvatore. Our guide - Lavinya or Lavie - was exceptional! A very eloquent and charming personality who kept the group engaged as well as took care of our individual needs, such as Veggie food and helping a Senior member of our group. Lavie also gave us the right amount of information to make the tour relevant for us without an information overload.
The Tour itself was very well balanced with some great trekking across Siena while our energy levels were high. Followed by an exceptional wine tour and tasting session followed by lunch at an Fattorio Poggio Alloro Organic farm. The Farm itself is set in surreal surroundings with exceptional views of the Tuscan Chianti vineyard landscape and San Gimignano! The Lunch was tasteful. the staff courteous and the wine tasting was truly tasteful and generous with 3 different kinds of wines on the Menu! The Wine shop also had very reasonably priced wine for purchase and after tasting the exceptional Chianti vintages, we could not help ourselves! This was definitely the highlight of the trip for us. Then onwards to San Gimignano and the Medieval Manhattan which was a quaint little town with great architecture and views. Finally winding the down the trip in the comfort of the bus to Pisa. Overall, we would rate this trip 5/5 or 10/10 in terms of Experience, Value & Content & Comfort! All thanks to some great program planning on the part of Walkabout Florence, Salvatore the Captain or our ship through Tuscany & our great Guide - Lavie! Hope to be back again sometime! Ciao!
