We can't say enough good things about Le Baccanti. Our emails were all answered promptly, and our driver was a stellar guide and driver. He spoke knowledgeably about the sights and history of the region and it was a pleasure to have long conversations with him during our tour. We were able to see countryside-sights in a leisurely fashion, despite the fact that we didn't have our own car. Everything was authentic - nothing we saw was touristy. We can't wait to use the services of Le Baccanti again!
