Foodies and friends of typical products can participate in our culinary tours. They include guided visits to some of the best Tuscan wine-producers, to a traditional pasta manufacture or an olive oil mill as well as some Tuscan farmhouses where the skills of producing genuine pecorino cheese are still alive. Every single culinary tour can be complemented by a guided tasting. Tailor made gourmet tours on request.

Beyond this we offer you guided excursions dedicated to the old tradition of tuscan craft. They include guided visits to a typical alabaster workshop, a wood-fired terracotta kiln, a crystal manufacture or a marble workshop.
Friends of nature and outdoor activities can choose among our garden tours or they can join us in our guided Hiking Tours on the Tuscan Arcipelago (islands of Elba, Giglio, Pianosa, Giannutri and Capraia), the Apuan Alps and the Chianti or to the hills of Lucca, Pisa and Livorno. Every single hiking trip will be guided by one of our experienced environmental excursion guides who have personally designed their tours. Most of the tours can be followed by guided walking tours in the city of Pisa, Lucca, Volterra, Siena, Florence and Portoferraio.
Accessible tourism: We pay particular attention to a type of tourism which enables travellers with handicap to exercise their right to mobility. Together with companies specialized in the transport of disabled persons and in close contact with the administrators of churches and museums we have designed some specific itineraries which permit a safe and pleasant visit. Of course, all these tours can be adjusted to the special needs of your group.
Sustainable tourism: We strive to develop and promote a special kind of modern tourism, one that respects the natural environment, historic places and local traditions. We are member of ANGT (National Guide Association), FEG (European Federation of Guide Associations), SLOW FOOD and WWF (World Wildlife Fund).
