A true sample of excellent tour guide! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Upon arrival we were warmly welcomed by Aldo, we had a fantastic start! The guide and tour was extremely good, very flexible (appreciate this!) and for that he deserves a special thanks. We had a great time and his company added up to the experience. Aldo is such a warm personality and highly motivated guide (recommendable!). The scenery - back roads - was beautiful and it was a relieve to walk in such a beautiful environment. The atmosphere is so special that it really felt like home to all of us. All respect for Aldo who does a great job there; a true sample of excellent tour guide! Many thanks again and I recommend Aldo to everyone!

We had the BEST day in Tuscany with Aldo! If we could give it 10 stars, we would! We went to Siena, San Gimignano, Chianti, and a couple of other small hill towns that were beautiful and interesting. We had lunch with a wine tasting at a vineyard in Chianti, and we stopped in a small town for the best pastries and espresso. It was a perfect day! There were 5 people in our group, and we were very comfortable in the van. I highly recommend this tour.

We had a wonderful day and a great tour with our tour guide Massimo. We were picked up very close to our hotel in the center of Florence on time with a comfortable V-class and were dropped off there again in the evening. The whole day was great and Massimo was a superb driver and a great guide. We can really recommend this tour for everybody who wants to see the most important sights of Tuscany. Thanks Massimo for this great day in the Tuscany!

Massimo was absolutely excellent. Very friendly. Arrived on time and let us know some background and history of all the locations we went to. The drive was very scenic and the locations were picturesque. Massimo also gave us suggestions on where to have some of the best gelato in Italy and he was not wrong, it was absolutely delicious. 10/10 would absolutely do it again.

A really lovely way to spend the day, and by far the most efficient way of getting around Tuscany without feeling rushed. The driver Massimo was excellent, very knowledgeable and very friendly.
