Our day in Tuscany was absolutely the highlight of our trip. First of all, we felt like we were hanging out with old friends all day. Your choice of locations to visit was superb. There is no way we would have found such charming and delicious family run places on our own. I have been raving about our day with you and will absolutely recommend you to friends and family traveling to the Florence region. Thank you for an amazing day we will never forget!

Throughout our Aperitivo tour in Florence, the wonderful Coral provided us with a wealth of information and knowledge of Italian wines, food and Florence. Any traveller would be well advised to get in touch with Curious Appetite and request something similar - it is well worth the investment to see some of the city you might never reach.
