The entire experience was excellent. Our driver, Stefano, arrived early and was took us quickly and safely in comfort to meet Stella. Stella was a wealth of knowledge. She answered all of our questions and provided a special insight to each stop. Her choice of wineries was excellent. The first winery provided an excellent lunch in addition to offering us samples of their wines. We were impressed by the presentations at both locations. We would gladly recommend Context Travel to others. We had read some of the online reviews about Stella so we were very glad that she would be our docent.
Stella was absolutely amazing. Our tour with her was absolutely incredible. It was an absolute delight to tour with her- she was so thoughtful, knowledgeable, funny and kind.
Everything worked! We were really impressed by Stella's knowledge of the region and its history and learned quite a bit. In addition to being an informative guide, she was extremely pleasant and nice. It was fun to spend the day with her and we appreciated her sensitivity to the range of ages in our group (17 to 84). She paced the day and selected sites (ie: switching to Bagno Vignoni after learning the monks were not present at Sant'Antimo) that perfectly jibed with the abilities and interests of our group.
