This is an email we received from Andreas & Nazanin, who spent some days in Tuscany on the occasion of the concert of Andrea Bocelli at Teatro del Silenzio and booked a speciality tasting tour and a horse riding excursion with us.
Hi Arianna & Massimo
We just want to say thank you for a great trip, which we will remember for the rest of our lives.
Thank you for the restaurant and the arrangement with the flowers it was perfect. We also had a wonderful trip with Massimo!
I really wish we could have had a good trip with the horses and I am very sad that we missed the cooking class, maybe we will come back another time. Thank you for the great service of offering the dinner, we also enjoyed that a lot.
Although Nazanin had some problems with her wrist and her back we managed to walk a little around in pisa and florence before we went back.
Again Thank you for all your help.
Andreas & Nazanin
