Walking in the silence of centuries-old woods and mountain streams we will slowly approach the high altitude grasslands, the must-sees Apennine ridges.

Much better than expected! And Michel is an amazing guide! Absolutely loved the hike, and would most certainly strongly recommend to go with Michel at any time and for any experience!

Michel was wonderful. This hike was everything we could have hoped for and more. He made sure we felt comfortable with the level, brought us to a special lake that we would never have found ourselves, answered questions and shared history of the area. He provided a huge lunch of local flavors and made the day fantastic overall. So much so that we asked him if he was available later in the week for a tour of Chianti country that he personalized for us (we love hiking and wine!) - and fortunately he was, as that was a day we will never forget as well!!! If you are looking for an extraordinaire guide in Tuscany, please contact Michel!

My 15-year old son and I just finished a hike with Michel. What a great day! I really wanted to get out of the city (Florence) and into the countryside and I got exactly what I wanted. It was a great hike with beautiful views and a delicious lunch.

We booked with Michel for a hike in the Tuscan mountains and it was wonderful. He brought extra clothes for us and catered for our dietary requirements. He had great knowledge of the area. The scenery was beautiful and it was so peaceful- it was a really wonderful day. Thank you!

It was sunny for four days and then, on the day of the hike, it forecasted a lot of rain in the mountains. Michel was fantastic. He created another itinerary for us last minute: a lovely trek around a different area and a visit to a vineyard. Michel is knowledgeable and a wonderful guide. We really recommend this experience!
