This is an email we received on from Ann and Fred, who booked several tours with our company during their stay in Tuscany.

|…| in addition, we also enjoyed our tour of Peccioli with Moira – I know it was difficult for her to “herd” her group through the streets and market but she did a wonderful job of keeping us together and telling us about your lovely town.

Please let them all know how much we appreciated them and we send them kisses from America.

Again, thank you to Arianna and Friends – we are also your friends now!
Ciao,
Ann and Fred
