    Our trip with Simone was excellent. I booked a last minute tour to Siena, San Gimignano and Chianti and was amazed at how everything went without a hitch. Simone was very nice and knowledgeable. He took us to great restaurant for lunch where we had a wonderful time. Opted for a wine tasting stop and it was also awesome. Highly recommended. We were party of 8 and tour was on Dec 04’19.

    This tour was wonderful! We went to Siena, a winery for lunch and tasting and then San Gimignano. He even took us by Piazza Michelangelo on the way back to our airbnb and got some great photos for us. Gino went above and beyond to make sure our trip was perfect. I would definitely recommend this tour!

    Alex provided a whirlwind tour of the area. He was very happy to tailor the tour for our needs, was very knowledgeable and extremely accommodating. Thank you

    We had Alex as our guide and he was wonderful! He was very personable and knowledgeable, especially about wine. He took us to a farm where we had a delicious lunch and tour of their winery. It was the best day of my 14 day vacation in Italy!

    Alex was very informative, professional and patient. He gave a great tour of the vineyards and explained the wine making process to the point of stopping and showing us the grapes.

    My wife and I had a great time with our private tour guide Alessandro. It was our first time in Tuscany and did not want to go through the hassle of renting a car and navigating through the cities.

    Alessandro went out of his way to give us the history and explanations of everywhere we visited along with the history of the Tuscany region.

    The tour was flexible and catered to our wishes with Alessandro going out of the way to show us specific things we wanted to see.

    Highly recommended.

    This was a great private day trip. Private is the way to go. We were able to customize the itinerary a bit and Alex/Alessandro was very knowledgeable and helpful This was a highlight of our trip!!!! We really liked walking through the small villages.

    The private tour in our limo service with our driver Alex was excellent. He was on time to pick us at the hotel and is a very corteous, friendly and well prepared driver. Although he is not a tour guide, he provided us with useful and enough information about the placed we were going to visit and along the way. He managed to schedule proper times for visiting the towns of Siena and San Giminiagno as well as to book a wonderful lunch at a local farm were we tasted good Chianti wines and food prepared by the owners. The only down side was the server at lunch, which tried to do a good job but prevented us from enjoying a peaceful time from all the information she gave about everything. This of course is not a problem of the company which provided our private tour but more of the farm staff. Other than that the tour went flawless, we enjoyed a lot the experience and we returned on time to our hotel feeling refreshed and not tired because of the one to one service and the comfortable ride. We would highly recommend the tour to friends and family.

    Best tour of the entire trip. Had no idea what to expect out in the country. Siena was a beautiful old town with a round city square. A stop by Monteriggioni for lunch was fun. The drive through Tuscany was filled with beauty. Highly recommend this private tour so you can spend the time you want along the way!

    Our driver Alessandro was outstanding!! He was so knowledgeable about the region and especially the wine. In addition to our visits Siena and San Gimignano, he helped us pick a great winery for lunch.and was able to squeeze in another winery stop for a tasting on our way back to Florence. He also took us on a backroads tour through the Chianti Classico area so we really were able to see and appreciate the amazing area rather than just driving in and out of a winery.
