Tours of Tuscany exceeded all/any expectations. The lovely ladies of Tours of Tuscany were the perfect hosts we would definitely recommend these tours to anyone. Such a lovely place to visit & will remain with us always.
The ‘Soggiorno in Tuscany’ program showcases an outstanding collection of Tuscan culture including history, food, wine and lifestyle. Organisation was excellent and carried out in a professional manner. The facilities and venues were all of a very high standard. The staff were helpful, supportive and very congenial. All aspects of the tour far exceeded our expectations.
As well as a fantastic, tailor-made itinerary, our time in Tuscany was made even more special through the provision of everything one could need to make our stay a “home away from home”. From the wine to the washing machine every detail was taken care of and Ines herself meets and greets personally. One is met and hosted by the person who runs the company and who takes pride in providing only the best of everything. Every outing has provided us with a quality of information and experience rarely found elsewhere. SECOND TO NONE. Thank you all at ‘Tours of Tuscany’ for an unforgettable time.
Our stay with Tours of Tuscany has been a delight from day one. Monique & Erica provided the most fantastic experience you would hope for! We sincerely hope we can come back again one day and be pampered again!

How do you improve on such professionalism and excellence as “Tours of Tuscany” – well done! Fastastico! We loved “Tours of Tuscany”, every day was remarkable, rememberable and thoroughly enjoyable. It makes us very sad to say ‘Ciao’ on the last day.
Thank you Ines, Monique, Erica for making ‘Tours of Tuscany’ the highlight of my trip to Italy. From the fabulous restaurants and selection of wines to the fantastic cooking experiences with Donatella and Alessandra, I could not have asked for anything better. Thank you and I hope to see you all again in Italy.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 7 day Tuscany experience. Ines and Erica were superb guides from their friendly welcoming manner to their incredible knowledge of the area. The accommodation was excellent and set in picturesque grounds with tranquillity surrounding us. The meals were all 5 star and the locations were incredible. We would highly recommend this tour if you would enjoy seeing what the average tourist does not . Stress free and incredible.
Thank you for a great experience; we tried but couldn’t come up with any negatives. A wonderful introduction to Tuscany in every way – food, wine, historic towns, the language and culture.
It was a privilege to benefit from your obvious experience in blending all this into two memorable weeks in what felt like a seamless effort on our behalf.
Thank you for giving us such a stress free and fabulous Tuscan experience. Ines and Monique , your professionalism, patience and punctuality are second to none. I imagine the ‘duck legs’ are paddling furiously under the water but is it all smooth and serene on the surface. Bravissimo. And as for Erica, she is an absolute treasure , so engaging, knowledgeable and a true delight…….a wonderful ambassador for you and Tuscany.
Thank you again and I know it is an over-used cliché, but we hope to return and spend time again ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’
A big ‘Thank You’ to Ines, Monique and Erica for a thoroughly enjoyable ‘Taste of Tuscany’. Amazing food, experiences and charming accommodation in the Italian farm style apartments A very warm friendly and memorable experiences ‘Grazie Mille’ to all.
Our week in Tuscany was made memorable through the wonderful care shown by Ines, Monique & Erica. We loved every experience and would highly recommend it to anyone. We will cherish the experience forever.
This was the second time with Tours of Tuscany for one of our party, which is testament to the wonderful experience provided by Ines, Monique and Erica. The tour is well organised and every need cared for and at a good pace, so the tour is both relaxing and memorable. Definitely recommended!
I’ve dreamt of going to Italy and Tuscany in particular all my life and the Tours of Tuscany team definitely made my dreams a reality! Ines, Monique and Erica I cannot thank you enough for such an amazing two weeks exploring and experiencing Tuscany!
Each guests time is customised for them – everyday is thoughtfully planned out, and if it does rain don’t worry because the team are always prepared! The accommodation is beautiful and so relaxing and the team are so happy to help you with any queries or requests you might have.
The two weeks went so quickly, could easily have stayed another two! I will be back soon for sure!
We loved our Tours of Tuscany experience. The team are attentive without being intrusive, individual interests are catered for in a thoughtfully planned itinerary. Their intimate knowledge of Tuscany and all it offers, from Historic villages through to fabulous restaurants makes this a wonderful holiday. We wholeheartedly recommend Tours of Tuscany.
Ines & Monique have looked after us superbly. The accommodation, tours & meals all exceeded our expectations. Tours of Tuscany makes you feel like you have stayed with locals & been shown all the ‘tips’ that only they know. We cannot recommend it highly enough and we both plan to come back.
As a first time solo traveller I was weary. This was a wonderful experience I felt like a guest in their home. The accommodation was perfect & the dining was exceptional. I would highly recommend ‘Tours of Tuscany’ and especially the most beautiful hosts.
Tours of Tuscany has been the most fantastic vacation experience! When I booked the tour for my mother-in-law’s 60th birthday, I had no idea how wonderful it would be. Ines & Monique have made this week so magical. I feels as though I am leaving family behind, we have toured the most beautiful places, ate the most delicious food, and drank the best wine all while feeling we were with friends & family even though we have never met. I am counting the days until I can return! Truly an experience of a lifetime!
From beginning to the end…. Perfection! Every aspect of our trip was met with the finest attention to detail. Upon arrival, Ines & Monique met us at the station and an instant bond was made. They both made us fee welcomed and part of a family. All the tour locations were lovely and provided a way for us to experience Tuscany as locals do. The food and wine far exceeded our expectations! They truly are miracle workers when it comes to meeting everyone’s needs and desires. Couture tours! I am so grateful to have had this special tour for my birthday and feel very blessed to have shared it with Ines & Monique! We are now family!
As return guests Tours of Tuscany has once again delivered a memorable ‘taste’ of Tuscany & Umbria.
We absolutely thoroughly enjoyed our two week Tour of Tuscany experience. Ines and Monique are exquisitely professional with everything they do, but at the same time they made such great company on our days out and at our evening dinners. Their Italian heritage was invaluable, from providing information on the places we were visiting to help ordering our meals etc. We chose the two week tour and glad we did as we found it to be the perfect amount of time to enjoy the region. Everything appeared to work like clockwork and we never felt rushed. Having Cortona as our local town was an added bonus as it has to be one of the most beautiful towns in Tuscany.
We find it difficult to fault the tour, from our accommodation, the friends we made, the places we visited and our dining experiences, but the real magic of the tour were our hosts Ines and Monique.
Ines & Monique have provided a seam-less experience & a taste of Tuscany that has helped me to rejuvenate & relax with not a care in the world. These ladies work tirelessly to ensure that their guests needs are met without any hiccups; they are professional & very welcoming. They offer a great experience & I would love to re-join them with my children (next time). I would highly recommend them to anyone interested in coming to Italy.
Thank you for our wonderful, wonderful tour! Couldn't have done it without you, as the saying goes. We enjoyed every day and every scheduled and unscheduled moment. Thank you for reading our interests so adroitly and managing our time perfectly.
Our 14 day tour with Ines & Monique made our dream vacation in Tuscany a reality. They’ve designed a spectacular itinerary, which gave us the opportunity to explore the many delights of the region. They have scoped out the restaurants in the area and provided us with exceptional culinary experiences night after night. But the way Ines and Monique treat their clients is what truly made the tour exceptional. They are genuinely warm people who made us feel comfortable and at ease throughout our time together. We will certainly recommend Tours of Tuscany to our family and friends at home.
The best tour that we’ve ever taken. A living experience not a “drive by”. Great food, super attention to detail. More like a family gathering than a commercial tour. Thanks for letting us join you.
Professional, friendly and knowledgeable, Ines & Monique made my stay in Tuscany a very special experience. Accommodations, transport, dining venues were exceptional. As a single traveller I was a little concerned before the tour, wondering how I’d fit in but that was a completely unnecessary worry. Prior to the tour, various questions I asked were answered promptly; these two capable and charming ladies make everyone welcome and go out of their way to facilitate requests. Food, wine, company – I made the best choice taking this tour – and of course the countryside & towns were a joy. Thank you so much for making my birthday celebration trip so special.
Ines and Monique offer a highly professional, personalised service tailored to your specific requirements. We thoroughly enjoyed every day of our trip and were impressed by the attention to detail and flexibility on the day. The dining experience was superb. We are going to recommend Tours of Tuscany to all our friends/contacts. We hope to visit again!
Keep doing what you’re doing, its fabulous.
Our Italian holiday covered 6 weeks, including a cruise on Regent Seven Seas, but the everlasting memory will be of Tuscany and the magnificent countryside. Our tour (planned by Ines) exceeded all of our expectations, leaving us with a desire to come back ASAP. Absolutely brilliant!
Everything about this trip was amazing. I could not fault it in any way. Ines and Monique are so professional and lovely people, every little detail had been thought of and nothing was too much trouble, their knowledge of the history and towns we visited were so informative . They threw in surprises such as a visit to a store that designed beautiful shoes and jewellery a wonderful gallery that the owner had discovered an Etruscan well while renovating. Everything was perfect. The accommodation was so comfortable, loved the villa that we stayed in. The food was to die for so much variety and different places that we ate at. The cooking class was so much fun as was eating it afterwards. Every single day exceeded the day before. I had high expectations but wow this trip was so good and so much better than I thought it would be. I want to thank you for putting us onto this. We had such an amazing time.
We cannot properly express the joy that this Tuscan Tour gave us. Since we just happened upon this website by chance, we were not sure of what to expect, but everything more than surpassed our hopes for a Tuscan holiday.
The places we were taken to were breathtaking and our accommodations enchanting!
However, it would not have been as wonderful without the hospitality, charm and grace of Ines and Monique. They tended to our every need or desire, making our holiday truly unforgettable.
We will definitely return one day, and tell our friends about this fabulous experience.
You provided a trip of a lifetime. No other tour would come close to what you provided.
A lifetime of wonderful memories & leaving behind new friendships and a love of Italy and the Tuscany Region was all and more than I would have ever imagined. Thank you for making my dream come true.
After travelling through Europe for four weeks and having some amazing experiences like witnessing the July 14th fireworks at the Eifel Tower, and standing on snow-capped Alps, we didn’t think our trip could get any better. But we were wrong! Spending a week in a beautiful Tuscan Villa, with magical views and two fantastic hosts, has definitely been a highlight. Ines & Monique took care of everything and nothing was too much trouble. Thank You Monique & Ines for an unforgettable week in beautiful Tuscany.
We have found the Tours of Tuscany experience beyond our expectations, the friendly can do attitude from Ines & Monique that nothing was a problem, we can only say Thank You, hope to see you again and we will be recommending this tour to our family and friends. Thanks Again
A great week thanks to Ines. Wonderful destinations and food, and a lovely setting for our villa accommodation. A great balance of helpful suggestions, flexibility and the opportunity to explore destinations independently.
We would recommend Tours of Tuscany and that will doubtless be happening in the weeks and months ahead. Ines & Monique are passionate about their subject ‘Tuscany’ and everything therein, we found them interesting and willing to tailor their programme to our needs. With time and wherewithal available we shall be back.
Thank you for sharing your love & knowledge of Tuscany with us. It has been an unforgettable experience, full of colour, culture & history. Your professionalism & camaraderie has been exceptional!
I definitely hope to return in the not too distant future.
Ines & Monique, My Tuscan vacation was perfect. It was exceptional, well organized, and truly magnificent. Thank you for your tours, hospoitality and time.
Well informed, well-paced tour that presented Tuscany as we expected it to be. Very informative, great food & wine. Highly recommended.
Ines & Monique…. Wow!… Rose and I are in awe of your professionalism, dedication and efforts in providing us with an enjoyable, educational and inspiring ‘tour of Tuscany’ over the last two weeks. Would we do a return ‘Tour’ with you guys? Yes… a million times yes!! Thank you and ‘Buona Fortuna’ with all that you undertake into the future. With affection and appreciation.
Tours of Tuscany offered the total Toscana experience and delivered just that. You owe it to yourself to travel with them, don’t let the grass grow under your feet before you do as life is too short to miss this.
Thank you so much Tours of Tuscany for a wonderful 7 days of being thoroughly spoilt. Your knowledge of Tuscany and engagement with local restaurants, wineries and artisans made for a very relaxed and enjoyable time.
By the end of my stay in Cortona I felt like one of the locals. The authentic accommodation of the Tuscan villa as well as Ines and Monique’s connections within the community make this tour a unique experience. It has allowed me to capture a real sense of Italy and the magic of this place.
Thank you Ines & Monique for helping to make our ‘Once in a lifetime holiday’ a truly memorable Tuscan holiday. The places we visited far exceeded our expectations and Cortona felt like ‘home away from home’. Your ability to put everyone at ease and to go beyond the normal expectations to help in any way was very much appreciated. Thank you.
We would highly recommend the “Taste of Tuscany” tour. It is very well thought-out and organised. Ines & Monique were always very helpful, accommodating and generous in their dealings with us. The selection of towns to visit and restaurants for meals were excellent. A fantastic experience with wonderful hosts.
We really enjoyed the 7 day “Taste of Tuscany” tour due to the attentiveness, friendliness and local knowledge of our hosts, Ines & Monique. Stunning scenery from our villa, amazingly diverse and delicious meals and wonderful company all round! Highly recommended for those who wish to experience a more relaxed and indulgent countryside tour in this beautiful part of Italia. Thank you Ines & Monique for a memorable holiday here in Tuscany!
If you want to enjoy almost 360 degree views of Tuscan ploughed fields, distant villas and a gorgeous swimming pool set in immaculate grounds this is the tour for you. Small groups with wonderful hosts and a very comprehensive journey through historical sites with leisurely strolls interspersed with authentic food.
