Here a message from Tara who brought all her family on holiday in Tuscany in July 2018:

Hi Girls

We are on our way from Florence to Pisa to fly home today but I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you all for working so hard at making our weekend of celebrations so special.

Everything was just perfect, the transport, the cooking, the beach and the restaurant. You made our weekend stress free when it could have been so much harder for us to organise with all the changes that had to be made.

We hope to come back soon and will come in and say hello when we do.

Many thanks.

Here the message of Stacey, who enjoyed a full week of tours and activities for her froups of friends guided by Massimo in the Summer 2017. Stacey considered her large group of friends like family:

Hi Massimo!

I am back to work and wanted to say thank you again for all you did to make the trip PERFECTO! There were no mistakes. Aside from my flight delay, haha, it went exactly as planned – thanks to you!

Even today, I’m hearing from the group that it was the trip of a lifetime – and ALL were IMPRESSED by you. You did a fabulous job. Marty and I knew you’d be good, but we had no idea how good. You are so smart, patient, fun and easy to get along with.

We all hope you enjoyed us as much as all 22 of us enjoyed you.

Until we meet again – keep in touch!

This is an email we received from Jack, who spent a holiday in Tuscany with his family doing many of our activities:

Dear Arianna:
A quick note as we are back in the USA and reading emails. You and your friends, Consuelo, Christina, Massimo, Vespa folks, Josee, and Isabella were wonderful to my family and the trip was a complete success. Thanks so much for making this a wonderful vacation. Our family will forever remember the tours and events your friends brought to life for us….The resort of Pierluigi was a great choice for us and we will happily encourage all of our friends who are visiting your area to contact you for tour accommodations. Please share our thanks with your friends. Grazie!!!! Jack

PS Are the few extra charges resolved?


This is an email we received from Victoria after arranging a family reunion in Tuscany for her relatives in one of our agriturismos.

Arianna, thank you for organising our huge family gathering last week at alessios farm house. We had a lovely time. I have transferred the final payment to you this morning and it should be with you by 9am on Wednesday. Enjoy the Tuscan sun, it’s raining here! Thank you again. Victoria

This is an email we received from Sandy, Andi, Lin and Ann:

Massimo- We wanted to share with you how much we enjoyed the cooking class with you and Luana. It was one of the highlights of our trip. I haven’t even begun to put my pictures together, but once I do (probably after the holidays are over), I will sent you copies of what I took). May your holidays be the best. Thanks again for making our Italy trip so very memorable. Always,

Sandy and Andi (Rita and Lin too) (USA).
