Our guide was Andrea Dini who was very knowledgable and gave us lots of information throughout the walk. He was clearly passionate about the countryside and we could understand this as it is beautiful. The first five minutes of the walk was quite steep but the view was worth every step. I have been on a few walks with guides from other company's in other countries and often found them to be in too much of a hurry but Andrea got it just perfect , allowing time to stop and enjoy the views and talk about aspects of the area. Andrea was able to give lots of information about the wine and food of the area . At the end of the walk we enjoyed a great meal in a friendly environment This was one of the highlights of our week in Florence. We would be happy to use this company again and we would definitely do this walk again.
