Reviews

Excellent trip! Wonderful, varied, exploratory itinerary. Amazing food and wine. Visited beautiful, charming, ancient cities. Loved the wellness aspect (daily yoga, farm-to-table dining, walking/hiking). Accommodations were comfortable and beautiful! Exceptional tour guide - Sara of TravelAnthropy Tours. Extraordinary experience!
Lauri & her family did a great job. The accommodations were beautiful. The food was great. We enjoyed the tours. Meeting her friends was a treat. Of course the Yoga she teaches is wonderful!
We had a wonderful time. Beginning each day doing yoga overlooking the valley of Arezzo at the Podere di Pomaio winery was inspiring. The accommodations at the winery were first rate and we appreciated all the efforts of the hosts. Each day Sara provided an exceptional tour of the region. She was very knowledgeable and delightful to be with. Many thanks for organizing this exciting adventure that included delicious food and wine!
