I am reborn! Simply the best vacation I have ever been on
Some great stories to tell the grandchildren. Would recommend to a friend
Experiencing rural Tuscany, in particular Buti and Calci.
Some parts of the walk are quite steep, be prepared for some scrambling!
Highly enjoyable. (more)Carol Quinn
Fantastic! It was everything we hoped, and more. Our daughters are 13 and 11 years old, and we had a great time on our first family walking vacation. (more)Paul Arkle

The most memorable part was the whole hiking tour all together, being able to accomplish it as a family, experiencing the local hospitality and unbelievably splendid nature! We´ve had the time of our lives! Found our paradise at Lake Como, and will return, for sure! (more)Jeanette Reinholdtsen

Great riding vacation, stress free in a beautiful setting.
Definitely, the best aspect of this trip was the horse riding. The horses were healthy and well-behaved. Riding along side sky-high cypress trees, between rows of vineyards, and past ancient ruins and rural villas was quite an experience. The pace was comfortable - with plenty of lively canters!
We stayed at the riding center in the owner's restored family home. My sister and I shared a room that overlooked the stables. We fell asleep to the gentle sound of nickers.
