This is not 5 Star but if you want to live and feel Tuscany this is the perfect Holiday with local farm accommodation, touring around small wineries, small beautiful walled cities and villages. Escorted by Mattoe,he is a local, he knows the area intermittently knows the area, and the people and history. This tour shows you the real Tuscany not the big cities. Thank you Mattoe and Laura
My group and I did the 7 day tour. Trust me…this is not to be missed. Matteo made this vacation one of the most enjoyable ever. He was knowledgeable about Tuscan food and wine, attentive and responsive to our many requests. Our farmhouse accommodation was nice and comfortable, even without air conditioning. The food they served was delicious. If you can, sign up for the cooking class. It was a blast!
A well thought out itinerary allowing a real appreciation of what Tuscany has to offer. Experienced the magic of Tuscany and all it offers. Matteo was an excellent guide and “trip master” and have no hesitation recommending him and the itinerary.Kate and I thoroughly enjoyed our week and learned a great deal.

My daughter and I recently did this amazing 3 day fully escorted tour around Tuscany, visiting wineries on each day but in three different regions of Tuscany (a surprise to us as we thought Tuscany was one region and that wines would all be similar). We also had a interest in authentic Italian food, and other land-based industries in the region. We asked many questions and were given very comprehensive answers. Matteo (our guide) took the trouble to add two other visits to our itinerary following our questions about beef cattle and beaches. He added a visit to a beef cattle farm one day and the following day took us to the beach
As part of a two week traveling experience through Italy, my husband and I met up with Tuscany Untouched and traveled from Florence to San Filippo. What a treasure of a day! Matteo was most thoughtful and helpful in making this day in the Tuscan hills wonderful and memorable. We enjoyed a delicious lunch, basked in the hot springs, and had an excellent dinner with traditional Tuscan flair. The people were lively, the food and wine wonderful, and throughout the day Matteo made sure we were enjoying ourselves. We highly recommend Tuscany Untouched for your personal visit, and hope to visit again!
My wife and I spent 2 weeks in Italy at the end of September. The highlight of our trip was the 3 days we spent in Tuscany with Matteo. His local knowledge and connections made for an incredible unforgettable experience.He took us to places and restaurants we could have never found on our own. The Farmhouse was very comfortable and the views were spectacular. if you go to Italy and you don’t experience Tuscany, you have not seen the best Italy has to offer. Matteo definitely enhanced our experience!!!

I cannot say enough good things about this tour. First of all Matteo is the absolute best tour guide. He has a wonderful busy itinerary but is also very flexible. His knowledge of the area is amazing! He has selected the most enjoyable vineyards to visit. Several of the tastings included lunch and this was such a nice addition. Our group of six Texas girls really feel like we got to see and experience Tuscany!
My husband and I had a fabulous 7 days in Tuscany with Matteo as our guide. He took us to incredible medieval towns that were not overrun with tourists. We visited amazing wineries and authentic Tuscany restaurants. Matteo was always punctual and gave us plenty of time to explore villages and sights. The accommodation at La Capraia was lovely with beautiful views of the Tuscany countryside.
Tuscany Untouched provided us with — hands down — the best experience we could have imagined on our seven-day “Ultimate Wine Tour.” Five of us thoroughly enjoyed Matteo’s customized itinerary of scenic drives, in-depth wine tours and tastings, local shopping, a cooking class, time off to explore, and fantastic meals aplenty. Highly recommend to others headed to Italy (and we are already thinking about re-booking in the future). #FiveThumbsUp and #FiveStars too!

We spent the day as a group of 4 with our tour guide Matteo and met with him at around 10am. The 2hr drive to Bagni natural springs was comfortable and we stopped for refreshments about half way through. The springs were absolutely amazing and leaving early definitely makes a difference as it was relatively quiet when we got there. Matteo organised access for us to changerooms and showers to refresh after the springs. He then allowed us to choose from a number of recommended dinner locations and we selected montepulciano. On the way we visited a local winery and participated in a private wine tasting and tour organised by Matteo which was amazing and felt very exclusive. We then proceeded to Montepulciano where we were given a walking tour and historical rundown before we were left to roam by ourselves until dinner. We reconvened at 7pm for a fantastic 3 course dinner and another wine tasting. I cannot recommend this tour highly enough- well worth a visit!
We loved our Tuscany Untouched Tour. We did a 3 night Bespoke experience and it was a highlight of our honeymoon. The farmhouse accommodation Matteo organized was so unique and charming; Oscar our host was very helpful and nice.
Our private day trip with Daniel was sensational, he was a very thoughtful & intelligent guide. He taught & showed us so much of Tuscany.
Then on our free day, Matteo booked us in for a tasting lunch and provided a great itinerary for us.
We recommend this for any wine & food lover. Experience Tuscany in an authentic & real way.
“It was super fun!” My kids’ comments summed it all.
Matteo was a wonderful guide, and had very good knowledge of Tuscany. We had a private day tour tailored for our family. We all enjoyed our natural hot spring bath in Bagni San Filippo. The calcified formation of the water fall was amazingly beautiful, and the water was refreshingly hot and healing. Our kids had so much fun climbing and exploring the different pools. After the hot bath, Matteo drove us to a winery in Montalcino where we were treated to aperitivo paired with different grade of amazing wine. In the process, we learned about wine making. The tour ended with a trip to Montepulciano, a medieval town on top of a hill in Tuscany. The view from the top was spectacular ! Our only wish was that we had a little bit more time in these places, especially the hot spring. Thank you Matteo for a wonderful tour!
Wow, wow, wow. Where to begin. From the beginning booking this trip was made easy by the communication from Matteo. It was so good to greeted at the railway station by Matteo’s smiling face. We did a quick shop for supplies for our apartment and then off to apartment. Such an beautiful setting and such friendly family that greeted us. Our apartment was on the small side but got changed to a much bigger apartment. The food, wine and service was fantastic Oscar is such a beautiful young man, spending time with his mother and father explains why he is so good, nothing was too much trouble. Our days of exploring were a jaw dropping journey of mountains, rolling hills, beaches, wineries, churches, castles and fabulous food. It is hard to explain how good this trip was without going on and on. Everything was planned to perfection, except the weather but Matteo had no control over that, the rain and the hail did not deter us. Matteo showed that he was a professional in his knowledge of the region and had the personality to put it across in a very good manner. We also got to spend time with Laura his wife and they compliment each other and made our trip so special. Matteo knew my husband liked horses, so he surprised us by taking us to a riding school. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to have a jaw dropping experience.
We couldn’t have asked for a better, more considerate itinerary than what Matteo offered us for an authentic Tuscan experience. Whether it is wine tasting, wine touring, private transfer assistance, hot springs, shopping, specific tours to cities, or truly authentic lodging in the beautiful Tuscany landscape — Matteo can make your dreams a reality. Very communicative, responsive and thorough in the planning of your trip so it meets your preference. WHEN we make it back to Tuscany, I will certainly use Matteo once again. Thanks again for making our honeymoon one to remember and one that we will cherish in memory!
