A Toast to Travel is a celebration of life through Wine, Culture, Food and Fun. We are more than a travel company; we help create memories of a lifetime for all our guests. We have designed our Experiences based on our years of travelling and living overseas, and living like locals. We believe that to get the most out of an experience, you need to immerse yourself in the culture and actually interact and share experiences with the locals. This concept is our guiding principle when designing our Experiences. While hosting you on one of our Experiences, we travel with you to some of the most stunning wineries not easily found by tourists, eat at enotecas and restaurants where the locals eat, cook with resident local chefs, pursue truffles, share secret typical Tuscan recipes with you and visit cultural sites led by local, native guides. We are fluent in the local languge, know the locals, the wineries, the restaurants, the barkeepers and are part of the family. We live our life by the guiding principle of living each day to the fullest and celebrating life. We welcome you to explore our Tuscan Wine and Culture (6 night/7 day and 3 night/4 day Getaway) and our Cooking Under the Tuscan Sun Experiences (6 night/7 day and 3 night/4 day Getaway). Our Experiences are like no other; each carefully curated exclusively for you. Just remember, you may leave Tuscany but Tuscany will never leave you. Once you’ve experienced Tuscany, you will never forget La Dolce Vita. Besides, after having lived like a local for the week, you are now part of the family.
