Like No Other Trip

Thank you again for all the planning and details you guys took care of. This was like no other trip Ron and I have ever taken. I share our experience and your website with everyone who’s interested! You guys really do a great job.

Off the Beaten Path

It is relatively easy to tour major cities across Europe but to go off the beaten path is a lot of work. Darlene and Darren do all that for you. The quaint hilltop towns, the tour guides, the food and the winery tours are all top notch. We can’t recommend enough!

Now We’re Spoiled!

We wanted to tell you how much we appreciated all the effort you put into organizing and leading the Food and Wine Tour.  As a rule we typically travel on our own so joining a fully organized tour was a real departure for us.  And now we are spoiled;  it’s hard to imagine another tour company putting so much into making sure that everything is perfect!  It was evident that you’ve carefully selected the towns, the guides, the restaurants and the wineries.  The agrotour at Podere Il Casale was very special. We were extremely impressed with all the tour guides, who were informative, passionate, and entertaining.

Incredibly Well-Planned & Organized

What a great trip we had. I was a bit reluctant to join a group but this worked so well. Not only was it incredibly well-planned and organized, it was a great mix of food and wine, landscapes, culture and shopping, not to forget people , we just had lots of fun. Did I mention wine? As the only vegetarian in the group I have to say that this was no problem at all. I ate so well and never felt left out.

Better Than Advertised!

My bucket list trip to Tuscany was better than advertised!

The towns had great markets and gorgeous architecture. The vineyards were unique and had endless vistas overlooking rolling hills. And the meals were fantastic! We enjoyed the hospitality, great food and wine. I came back relaxed and refreshed and as a bonus from all the walking, I didn’t gain an ounce, even after ALL the delicious food and wine. I will definitely make this trip again.

I highly recommend seeing Italy with Darlene and Darren, they made us feel like family.

Nothing Is Left To Chance

I can tell you without a doubt that the Tuscany Tour was excellent.  I’ve been on many tours over the years and found that you both do your homework.  Being a chef and convention organizer show clearly how you compliment one another in organizing your tours.  Nothing is left to chance.  As tour guides you are also very approachable.  Means a lot to the tourist.  Kudos to you both and let me know about your next adventure.  Thank you for a wonderful tour.  Would not hesitate to recommend you to anyone interested in your tours.

The tour which you organized couldn’t be faulted. We’ve talked about it and think it just right, the pace, the marvellous towns and vineyards and your care of the group were all perfect. Thank you both for a great experience and keep us informed of future plans. Thanks again.

Couldn’t Have Done A Better Job!

What a fabulous time we had on our tour with you! Can’t believe how beautiful Tuscany is and how we saw so much of it with you. Every day was an adventure. The group got on so well. You couldn’t have done a better job. Too bad it took us 41 years to get there. Has to be the most beautiful place on earth.
