Out of all our tours with Great Rail the company of our fellow travellers was the best we have encountered. A great group of people and many friends made. For the first time in eight tours we have met up with someone we have travelled with before.

Highlights of Tuscany was a superb holiday made all the better with a first rate tour manager in Lucille Ralph, super travelling partners and a lovely hotel in Montecatini, La Francia & Quirinale, where the staff went above and beyond in enhancing the experience. Special thanks must go to Luigi and his team in the dining room and Roberto serving at the bar.

Despite uncertainties due to the French Rail stikes on both our travel days through France everything went smoothly and there was plasinly a great deal being done behind the scenes to ensure this. Our tour manage conveyed calmness, even when plans were further thwarted by a WW2 bomb in Turin. The tours seemed a bit rushed at times. It would have been nice to spend longer in some of the places we visited. Some of the local tour guides were a bit too informative for our taste

Overall this was a very lovely holiday experience delivering a wonderful introduction to, and overview of Tuscany, with the right balance of guided & escorted tours and free time to explore. The hotel was well placed in Montecatini Terms, serving very good food and incredibly friendly and helpful staff. The location allowed easy access to the station for some of our day trips, and Montecatini Alto is certainly worth a visit, with stunning views across the Tuscan landscape. All day trips were well organised, good transport, and we were met by local guides to give an overview and interesting introduction to the places we visited, and there was usually enough time for an independent exploration following the guided tour. Late September is one of the busiest in the tourist season, Florence, Sienna and Pisa were absolutely packed with people, you have to expect long queues and waiting times everywhere.
