Convenient hotel pickup in Rome and 2 hour drive to Tuscany in small van with just one other couple. Several wine tastings and lovely pasta lunch at a winery with some fine Brunello. Stop at Pienza, a nice town with great views of Tuscany and wonderful shops

Total highlight of our Italy Trip. Khan was a skilled, knowledgeable passionate escort. By selecting a small tour, we were in a Mercedes Van, able to go to areas that bus tours did not go. The wineries and lunch were fabulous. When an unexpected storm blocked us in at a winery, Khan worked his magic to make sure we still got to see everything that was promised, even though our tour ran late. Total Professional. Just a remainder - if you are Canadian, know your limits of wine purchase. Even though the wineries offer free shipping, you are responsible for duties, customs and clearance. In Ontario we had to pay 102 of bottle purchase to LCBO to clear customs taxes brokerage. It was a very expensive case!

What a great day, our guide was quite a character and certainly helped to make the day enjoyable. The two wine tastings were fantastic, couldn't have asked for a better day. Glad I chose to do this small group tour, would certainly recommend this day trip to everyone.
