Past Travelers Comments
Want to know what it’s like to travel with Tuscany Tours?
This is a new tour for us but check out comments on our other tours below!
Like all the other Tuscany Tours trips I have been on, this one was a winner. I loved that the group was small - mostly made up of return travelers - and that everyone bonded. And, of course, Spain was nothing short of wonderful. I loved the Gaudi architecture in Barcelona, the sherry tasting in Jerez, the flamenco dancers in Seville, and the magnificent Alhambra. And meals together were memorable. So were the little shopping jaunts taken with Pam and Fede, our fearless leaders!

Dear Pam and Sam,
Amy and I are back home, having gotten our respective buses at Logan. Every night we discussed the day's adventures, culinary and other, in Spain. We had a great time together and enjoyed absolutely every part of the trip.
The hotels were beautiful. The rooms were welcoming and comfortable, and the hotels well situated and quiet. Great breakfasts and staffing, too. Lots of hot water and good water pressure for showers, which can be hit or miss at hotels everywhere.
Likewise, the restaurant meals you created were memorable not only for the food itself, but for presentation and restaurant locations. The lunch on the river in Sevilla, and the last dinner, overlooking the Alhambra, were fantastic.
Our guides were excellent as always. Such knowledgeable, patient and genuinely nice people. Javier I shared his sense of humor and love of life as well as his knowledge; I have a couple of great photos of him eating the spring onions and pouring wine into his mouth. And Daniele was an impressive but approachable scholar and linguist. They all wanted us to love and appreciate Spain as they do.
The flamenco performance, sherry tasting, and cooking class were all fantastic. (Please send recipes!!) The flamenco was mesmerizing. I have only seen it once before, many years ago, and was enthralled. The mosque, Alhambra and Gaudi buildings are so moving and beautiful, especially when coupled with all the history they represent.
You both provide an outstanding experience, and put so much of yourselves into the tours. It's no wonder you enjoy such a high percentage of repeat travelers. It was a treat to be met at the airport, and we think the mix of activity and free time was perfect. A trip with you really is a cultural immersion and so much fun.
