Christian Scalone was our driver, but more, our guide for a full day tour of Tuscany. We started from Florence where he picked us up at our hotel, promptly and then took us to a medieval Tuscan town, San Giamignano. During the trip getting there he explained the importance of wine and olive oil to the region. We then went... More

What a wonderful day we had. After spending a few days in Rome we traveled to Florence to be greeted by our private tour guide, Christian. He immediately made us feel comfortable as we started our full day tour of Tuscany. We traveled in a clean and spacious car through the Chianti area and listened to Christian talk about the... More

I can't say enough about the amazing guide services Azzurra planned for my family during our 12-day trip to Italy this month. I contacted her 2 months before our trip and described the kind of trip we envisioned, she made wonderful suggestions and was extremely responsive to all the emails and phone calls I initiated throughout the process of planning...

We spent 11 days in Florence and Rome and our day in the Tuscan region with Azzurra was one of the best! She really knows and loves the region, was extremely flexible and easy going, and took us to two lovely wineries and two ancient towns brimming with history. Navigating those roads IS not a fun way to spend a... More

Even though our villa was in the middle of nowhere Christian arrived with a friendly smile to pick us up on time. After a short drive we were tasting some superb wine from a family run vineyard. Christian was really knowledgeable, and gave us a real insight in to Italian life, wine-making and the sights of Tuscany. After stopping for... More

We found Azzurra through TripAdvisor and could not have been happier with the day she arranged for my husband and me. Azzurra was so accommodating of our requests, and created a fabulous itinerary for us. We toured the Chianti Classico region, and made 2 stops at fabulous wineries. One a medium sized vineyard, and then a small boutique vineyard, where... More

Azzurra was an amazing tour guide! She told us that they started their company so that people could "tour and learn about Tuscany from a Tuscan," and that perfectly sums up our experience. Her pride and knowledge of the area, its history and customs, seemed limitless. We first went to the Altiero winery where Samuela and Paolo were gracious hosts.... More

We were in Florence for a couple of days and wanted to check out the Chianti region. After doing a ton of research on the best way to get out there, we were fortunate enough to have found Azurra through a friends' referral. She picked us up from our hotel and immediately we knew that we had made the right... More

Azurra's tour of Tuscany was benissimo! We loved the small towns of CastelMuzio, Pienza, Monticchiello. The organic pecorino farm, Podere il Casale, was a treat! Brunello wine tasting and lunch in Montalcino with Christian was both informative, delicious and fun. Both guides are knowledgeable and personable. Our family (adults ranging 40-70 and one teenager) highly recommend touring Tuscany with these... More
