Trip Advisor recommended Dr. Bruno Squartini for a day trip from Siena to San Gimignano. It was a great suggestion. Bruno picked us up at the hotel and drove us in his car to San Gimignano. We walked inside the walled city as he was explaining to us the particulars of each site. A pleasant and knowledgable person, it was... More

We had originally planned an afternoon hike around San Gimignano environs but the weather turned so Bruno amended the tour to inside the walled city. Bruno was very knowledgable and gave us a great insight to how the people of the town lived then and now. SG is a town that is one of the most popular with large tour... More

I wrote to Bruno asking him if he could do a tour for us across Val d'Orcia. What a fantastic, professional and friendly guide. He tailored the perfect tour for us - something we could never have done by ourselves. He picked us up from where we were staying at 8.30 and started the tour punctually at 9am, taking us... More

Bruno took my wife and myself on a half-day walk near San Gimignano--through the vineyards and olive groves, along the ancient salt route. He was wonderfully knowledgeable on everything we encountered, from geology and wildlife to economics and social development. A very good investment--and a nice man!

Bruno was a superb guide. He was highly knowledgeable about the history of the town and the area. He was clearly dedicated and through a network of friends and colleagues (shop owners, restaurant staff) seems to be known by all and sundry. He set out to show us the best of this Tuscan region and he succeeded. Sampling food, wine... More

My wife and I spent four days with Bruno in Tuscany; Florence, San Gimignano, Siena, Pienza and Montepulciano. Bruno gave us clear directions on where to meet each day, and he was ready for us with a smile each time! Bruno's extensive knowledge was the most helpful. He knows everything about the towns listed above (and more) and told us... More

We stayed in San Gimignano for a few days, and hired Bruno to show us some of the countryside. He is a former pharmacist who now provides tours. He was knowledgeable and fun, and he found a 3 mile route that was easy to negotiate. We learned about the history of the region, and its wine, olives and other native... More

We booked a full day with Bruno- we had our own wheels but we didn't want to miss out on the good stuff only locals know. Bruno has a wealth of knowledge to share regarding history, agriculture and local industry, and nothing was too much trouble. We highly recommend Bruno, you wont be disappointed

Bruno is a retired pharmacist and tour guide extraordinaire. Passionate, funny, excited, those who have been on his tours know this is a guy with a big heart who loves to show people his little corner of the world San Gimignano. From the gelato shop to eating boar sausage and knocking it down with some cool Vernacia wine Bruno knows... More
