Reviews of AF Travel Ideas
"Made our trip! Fun, helpful and knowledgeable! We had an amazing time going to wineries. Now I want to go back. We could have rented a car, but instead we had a stress free day full of fun, and we saw things we would never have seen otherwise. Now I am planning to go back and see what other fun is to be had. I don't usually use any company while traveling, but this changed my mind about that. Highly recommend this company!" - Maureen C.
"We had an indescribable trip. Angela, Kirsten and especially Francesco made the trip so perfect for us. We had never been to Italy, let alone Cortona in the Tuscan region, and we were treated like royalty. Every day trip was well orchestrated and very well done, with lots of free time to explore on our own if we chose too. Any of our wishes were granted, from boat tour on Lake Tresemano, just need to find a toilet for the girls on the water after drinking all the Prosecco, to wine tours which were beyond unique and truly special. I'd go back tomorrow if I could. They have their acts together and are passionate about what they do, as well as proud of who and what they want to show you on the tours. We loved every moment and the 7 days Flew by. I cannot say enough about this company. They will bend over backwards to make your trip enjoyable. They did for us! Thanks guys!!" - Charles H.
"We had a party of 7, three kids ages 6-12 and four adults. Federica picked us up in a van in Cortona and we drove to the lake. The boat tour was great - cool and pleasant, a nice change from the normal August temperatures in Tuscany. We stopped at two islands and had lunch on the water." - Sam B.
"There are several tour companies in the Cortona area, but we just got back from a 10 day vacation and hands down this is the BEST company. Federica was fantastic! The entire staff was so helpful in organizing day trips for us. They listened to what we were looking for and then organized fabulous excursions for our group." - Kirk C.
