My friends and I had a wonderful experience with hillsandroads. Great drivers, unbelievable wineries, food, views and locations. Luca helped us with the itinerary so we could see as much as possible. Especially great for a small group. Would recommend to all!

My friends and I used Hills and Roads for trips to villages in Tuscany. Luca was very helpful in planning our itinerary and making recommendations. We had debated about renting a car in Florence and exploring on our own. We are so glad we used Hills and Roads instead! The drivers knew how to get us to the villages with... More

I was emailing off and on with the owner, Luca, for months, and even cancelled some of the specific day trips from time to time, but he was patient and simply changed what I asked. My wife and I used Hills and Roads for two straight days, and both days we were driven by the very personable and handsome Cristiano... More

Luca (of Hills and Roads) coordinated with our group representative via email regarding daily outings from our villa in Lucolena. He sent itineraries, we reviewed them, and he changed per our request. We were interested in non touristy activities, and Luca provided just that. Some highlights: marble quarry tour, tastings- cheese, olive oil, wineries. Many of the tastings were set... More

My friend and I loved our day trip to the Chianti region that we booked with Luca through Hills and Roads. Our tour was led by a wonderful guide Cristiano, who was a native to the Tuscany area we visited so he was quite knowledgable. My friend and I felt that the day was a highlight of our trip to...

Founds these guys on Trip Advisor and couldn't be more pleased - our trip with Cristiano was the best part of our vacation. I booked with Luca who was happy to put together our trip - we wanted to visit places that made cheeses, meats and olive oils but had no interest in wines, we also wanted stops in Siena... More

From the first email exchange with Luca to the end of an amazing day with Angela, our experience with Hills and Roads could not have been better. Angela was friendly, professional, a great driver, and so helpful. She helped make a trip that we thought would just be a visit to a winery to a day filled with beautiful scenery,... More

Carolina with Hills and Roads gave us (two couples) an outstanding full day private wine tour yesterday. She was both warm and highly informative having completed the first two years of sommelier training along with a post graduate college education and having grown up in the region. Her English was outstanding. She and Hills and Roads picked excellent wineries and... More
