This was our second time with Viaggi d'Ambra, and our experience was even better than it had been the first time four years ago. Chris was our tour guide both times. We traveled as a four-person group with a teenager and a child, both of whom also enjoyed the trip very much. Chris is like an old friend to all of us. We visited several Tuscan wineries, but our favorite was one called Altierro, where we had a homemade lunch with the family that owned the place. It was the highlight of our visit to Tuscany. The lunch was absolutely delicious, and the pasta was the best we'd ever tasted. The sauce of the pasta was wild boar sauce, and it had been cooked for three days before our arrival. The boar itself had been hunted in the forests nearby. The meal was great, and the family was friendly and pleasant. Afterwards, we visited San Gimigniano. Throughout the whole tour, Chris gave a lot of information on the history and stories of the places we visited. Overall a very good tour!

We traveled to Tuscany for our honeymoon. It was a first time to Italy for us both so we weren't sure what we wanted to see. Azzurra was our tour guide and she was so helpful in recommending places to see based on our tastes and preferences. We had the most amazing time tasting wines and cheeses, visiting the different towns of Tuscany, and overlooking the scenic views along the way. We felt like we really got the best experience of what Tuscany had to offer. Both days that we toured were beautiful. Azzurra was very personable and has so much passion for her work. She has developed relationships with people in the towns that made the experience much better for us than if we were going it alone. We booked our trip through a travel agency and we can see why they have been working with Viaggi d'Ambra for so long. We would definitely go back again!!

Two of my colleauges and I took a day trip with Azzurra Rosadini on 31 May. We THOROUGHLY enjoyed the experience. Azzurra helped us identify the train we needed to take from Roma to get to the starting point and picked us up at the train station in a comfortable new Van with plenty of room. We visited Montepulciano, Pienza and Montichello - and each was a treasure in it's own regard. The Tuscan countryside was breathtaking. We enjoyed an incredibly personal visit to a wineryin Montepulciano, and lunch at an excellent restaurant in Pienza. All of this is great - no doubt - but what made it excellent was Azzurra's choices and recommendations along the way, her mastery fo the subject, her excellent instincts as to when to inject herself in conversations, her knowledge of the area and places we visitied (especially the winery and restaurant). Azzurra knew all the best places to stop for photos, had an excellent command of the english language, seemed to anticipate our every need, structured the visit and did countless little things along the way to make it most comfortable and enjoyable for us..... Azzurra is clearly a special person and that combined with tuscany and it's people being special themselves.... well that just made this day "priceless" for us... if you are planning a trip to Tuscany and want to make the most fo your time and truly enjoy the experience i HIGHLY recommend you spend some time with Azzurra.

We hired Christian to take us on a day trip throughout Tuscany. We where renting a villa outside of Cortona. He took us to Monteulciano, Pienza and Monticchiello (La Porto). Along the way Christian gave us the history of the area, wine and olive making. He was awesome and pointed out areas we should visit during our stay that were bonuses we couldn't imagine.

Thank you Christian and Azzurra!

We took a wonderful one day tour with Azzurra to Pienza and Montalcino. We stopped for cheese and a personal tour of a Brunella winery. Azzurra is very knowledgeable about, well -- everything! From history to viticulture to local stories, she does it all. But most importantly, Azzurra is so warm and friendly. We felt like we were welcomed guests in her home. Do yourself a favor and book with Azzurra and Christian!
