Честно говоря, не было нашим намерением создать эту страницу. Не предусматривалась возможность оставить отзывы в какой либо форме, но после многочисленных просьб довольных клиентов (с некоторыми из них поддерживаем дружеские отношения), очень приятно опубликовать их письма.
Дорогая Лариса, мы до сих пор находимся под впечатлением нашей поездки в Тоскану. Все было сделано на высочайшем уровне. Ваши знания истории, архитектуры и искусства просто поразительны. Меня потрясли истории Святой Катерины в Сиене и Святой Фины в Сан Джиминиано. Красота Сан Джиминиано Дуомо просто нечеловеческая. Хорошо, что я купила книжку о нем. Но, самое главное, без этой поездки мы бы не почувствовали настоящего вкуса Тосканы, ее необычайной красоты и прелести. Нам было очень приятно и тепло в вашей компании. Такое чувство, что вы наш давний и близкий друг. Огромное вам спасибо за этот день. С уважением. Лена а Владимир. Кcтати, Владимир нашел вино Cан Джиминиано в Питере, и этим доволен несказанно.
Yours, Elena Parfenova.

Лариса, добрый день!
With this message I would like to introduce you to the World of Tuscany that I was able to see with the help of Larissa and Stefano during my last trip to Italy, July 2009. In fact I saw it through their eyes- people who know and love their place like nobody else. With all my previous travel experience ( business and personal) this is the first time I got lucky by meeting such professionals.
They’ve met all my quiet unusual criteria and went far beyond by walking us through non-touristy but not less unique places of Florence. Add Larisa’s deep knowledge of the history , Stefano’s knowledge of the city, their personal attitude and you will have the picture of what makes these people stand out among all other Russian speaking walking tour guides of Florence and Siena. With them it was a true adventure to get familiar with the culture, landmarks, artisan art crafts, customs and traditions ; other words the true spirit of both cities (and the minor cities in between). The places that Stefano was able to show as a native took the breath away, all the restaurants they’ve recommended – were excellent, the pictures they’ve sent me are amazing and will stay with me along with the memories of the best trip ever.
I believe you will find Larissa and Stefano really easy to get along with, as I did, because they are completely dedicated and helpful throughout your trip. With them I felt completely at home. For example, the day I arrived in Florence and called Larissa for some restaurant suggestion she invited me for dinner as only long time friend would do. This restaurant is the best place possible! I would never discover it on my own either through a guide book or web –site. Spectacular location, the best view of Tuscany hills, the magic of the vineyards surrounding the place, the taste of porcini mushrooms grilled up to perfection , the fantastic Guado al Tasso that accompanied them –I found it all at this one magic place . Thank you Larisa and Stefano for taking me there! I must mention the amazing, true Italian hospitality of the restaurant owner. We speak different languages but I would never forget that night long conversation. The fact that we came back to Florence at 3am speaks for itself. You wouldn’t want to leave that place as I didn’t…
I believe that a good vacation is half noteworthy information and 100% entertainment. Larissa and Stefano made it all happen! I’m coming back. Soon!!!
We had a great time in Italy thanks to Larissa and Stefano. Without them we would not get the complete picture of Tuscany. We appreciate the professionalism of Larissa and warm and cheerful personality of Stefano. The trip to Chianti region left the unforgettable memories and was a wonderful addition to our perception of Italy. Our family liked the interesting way of Larissa's story telling and her deep knowledge of the history.
Stefano made us feel the taste of native Italians and brought a sense of humor to our time spent together. Larissa and Stefano made our journey more interesting and meaningful.

Me and my family had experience to travel to Toscana (Florence, Siena, Montalchino, Montepulchiano, San-Geminiano, Pienza etc.) in April’2009 with support of Stefano and Larissa as guide. I can to say with big satisfaction what this tour was very interesting and comfortable for me and my wife. Larissa and Stefano were very friendly and created very interesting excursions to Siena, San-Geminiano and vine tour (Castello Banfi, Badjo Antinory, other) with real impression information about history and culture. As result, my reference is “more, than good”. if You need, I can to provide more detailed information to Your or send the marvelous made Stefano photos.
We inform that Stefano and Larissa have organised for us personal tours across Tuscany including visit in best wine makers. All our requests and wishes have been considered. We also have received fine photos. Expenses were reasonable, and recommendations of hotels and restaurants exceeded our expectations. I can safely recommend Stefano and Larissa to the friends and colleagues.
