This tour was without a doubt the worst ever. First, he forgot us and the hotel manager had to get him out of bed. He billed himself as fluent in English and a historian but never demonstrated either. His English was very poor and he wouldn't even try to communicate in other ways. We went to 3 villages, he kept pushing cathedrals and free wine tastings which we weren't interested in. When we stopped for lunch he insisted we go to his friends restaurant. Perfectly fine, but then he fought with my husband over paying the bill which he insisted on doing. When we returned to Cortona he charged my husband and our friends $135.00 per person, a total of $540 Euros when he had quoted in writing $250.00 plus lunch. We had four plates of pasta, a small bottle of Preseco 12 Eros and a bottle of Chianti 14 Euros that makes the charge for the pasta around 65 euros each I believe the menu said 7. Tuscany is so beautiful that even he couldn't ruin our day but I would never recommend this company to anyone. I think he is probably a nice man but way over his head.
