Lovely agenda, poorly managed
Emma_B
, Oct 2021
The day itself was wonderful! We were very disappointed with the lack of COVID awareness. We booked the tour based on the description “reduced numbers” due to covid and using smaller buses There were 31 people on a big bus, not what I would call reduced We were all sat very closely There was no mask enforcement by the guide, I actually saw a fellow passenger have to tell another passenger to pull his mask up. His wife was pregnant so how did the guide not enforce basic checks?? No hand gel given to people getting on and off the bus, only one hand gel bottle by the toilet. No cleaning, very disappointing. To the point that my friend and I wore 2 masks as others clearly didnt care I suggest the guides are reminded they have a responsibility to remind ALL guests masks should be worn, including themselves

Tuscany bus tour
Tim_K
, Oct 2021
Our tour to Tuscany was great! Our tour guide was fabulous, great bus driver also. We visited several small walled cities, had a wine tour and lunch that was also fabulous! I’d been to Italy several times before, but this was my husband’s first time there and it gave him a nice taste of Tuscany without having to drive. I’d definitely recommend this tour and this very reliable company!

Well organized and worthwhile.

Thoroughly enjoyed this day trip, and our guide Ivan was very pleasant, speaking in both Spanish and English. Both San Gimignano and Siena are "must visits" as part of any trip to Tuscany. We will probably spend more time in Siena during our next trip to Italy. There is so much to see and take in. The lunch / wine tasting at the winery was very lovely and the wine was exceptional. (Sent half a case home.) Overall I would say that this trip was worth every penny, and I would recommend it to anyone that might listen.

Ignore Negative Reviews. THIS TOUR IS OUTSTANDING!
Antonio_L
, Sep 2021
Our guide Debra was OUTSTANDING! ... I read numerous negative reviews regarding this Tour Company, "CAF". The majority regarding insufficient or inaccurate meeting point directions. Nothing could be more inaccurate. We did our due-diligence and walked to the meeting point the day prior. It was exactly where we were told it would be. Additionally, you can call CAF and they will gladly text to you a walking map direction in .PDF. ... Now, the tour itself: WORTH EVERY EURO SPENT. The locations we were taken to were incredibly beautiful. The wine-tasting was fantastic, and the lunch superb! We departed on time and returned as scheduled. We enjoyed this company so much that we called them today to book another.
