What people are saying about Tuscany

This was one of the best experiences I've had in Tuscany! The farm is located on a hill with a spectacular view! They give you everything you need (cap, protections etc ...) and after a briefing we leave for the ride in the woods around the farm or towards Castiglioncello del Trinoro. It's worth it even just for the views and the peace that these places convey! The driving was great, the only problem was that time flew by! Also good is the cutting board and the glass of wine that is served in the garden upon return. At sunset it is something indescribable! To do! One of the best experiences I've had in Tuscany! The place is very scenic! They give you everything you need for the ride, which takes place in the beautiful surrounding woods or towards the nearby village of Castiglioncello del Trinoro. The view is so beautiful and the guide was great! The tasting of cheeses and cold cuts served in the beautiful garden with a view was also good. It is a must!

This experience exceeded all expectations! For me it was the first time I got on a horse and to tell the truth it allowed me to overcome my fear, so I feel I can also recommend it to beginners. The guide was great and made it very easy and natural. The horse, Syra, was beautiful and very sweet, it was really exciting to ride in the woods and enjoy the landscape. It is a wonderful experience to do as a couple! And finally, a platter of local products and a glass of Rosso di Montepulciano were the icing on the cake. The view from the farm is fantastic ... you would never want to leave ...

I was able to have a special experience like Tuscany. Went with my teenage daughter. It was my first time horseback riding, but she kindly taught me and I was able to enjoy an hour of horseback riding. The wineries were also detailed explanations and delicious tastings. Simona and Marco, who guided us, were very friendly and made a good memory. Thank you very much. Recommended.

Very well organized tour. Friendly and communicative staff. It was our first time on horses for that long. I was concerned a little bit, but they have really good horses. And the trail was very pleasant. We will most likely do more of horse back riding back home. Wine tasting was most informative. I finally learn how to do it.

Had the best time riding through the Tuscan hills and had wonderful guides. Not too strenuous, was just fine for a first time horseback rider. The olive oil tasting was interesting and fun and lunch was lovely. A great laid back activity.
