My wife and I joined Walk About Italy for the 8 day tour in Tuscany. We have joined many walking tours and this was the best run, highest quality, and charming tour we ever experienced. Each day was beautifully planned and varied in experiences. You will be amazed at the quality of the food (and wine) served to you at the lunches and dinners. I don't want to take all the surprises away so I will simply say that the settings for lunch and dinner were charming. The walks are not challenging if you come to the tour accustomed to walking and/or doing some regular exercise but there are some uphills as you are in the lovely Tuscan hill country (which is why you come here).
The guides, Gianni (the owner of the tour company) and Sara (his main assistant guide for his Tuscan tours) are utterly charming. They are knowledgeable about the geology, flora, fauna, and the history and culture of an area where they were raised, continue to live and love. They both hold advanced university degrees in their fields but share that knowledge in a very accessible form. What is so difficult to express is the atmosphere and joy that they create as you walk along through this lovely countryside. You will be charmed.
The hotels they use are all very conveniently located and are very comfortable. So you expect great food, wine and vistas on a tour in Tuscany. What this tour provides is all that plus fabulous local guides at an amazing value.
