Village Italy or Best of Tuscany--2024

I love Italy but have visited the major cities and am looking for a tour that showcases the quieter more intimate cities. I am also a major wine/foodie person so tours that spend a lot of time visiting wineries and eateries are appealing to me.

I am consider both the Village Italy and Best of Tuscany tours and wanted to hear from people who may have taken both tours. I have a couple of questions:

If you have, which one did you enjoy most and why?

What time of the year did you visit?

I usually travel in Italy from mid-April to mid-May.

Thank you in advance!

Hi, Robin,
I have not taken the Best of Tuscany tour but I did travel with the Village Italy tour last June and thoroughly enjoyed it. I wish I’d done it befor the heat of summer set in, so your April-May timetable should be very nice. I wrote a fairly length trip report recently, so perhaps that will help you decide. I think you’d be fine with either choice.
