Giacomo is a great guide throughout the greater Chianti region. He was born in Certaldo and has many personal stories about the Italian culture, it's foods and especially the traditions behind making Chianti wines. He'll create a tour to your interests and will also include lunch at a wonderful agriturismo where the food is local and homecooked just for your... More

As the vast majority of reviews attest, Giacomo does not fail! Our first review to Trip Advisor was submitted 6/19/13 and was for a trip in 2010 (delayed review, our bad). We again went to Tuscany June 2014 and there was no doubt that we would use his services again. He is the best of the best! Punctual, engaging, fun,... More

May 2014 - We spent a week in Tuscany at a villa near Panzano. Everyday, Giacomo took us to different towns in Tuscany. His English is excellent. Giacomo has an amazing knowledge of the history of this region. I learned more about Siena from Giacomo than from walking through the city. Day after day, the team from Ghibellina arrived at... More

We took a tour last year, arranged by our travel agent, with Ghibellina Tours and Giacomo. We were staying in Florence and wanted to spend a day in Tuscany. Giacomo arrived on time in his late model Mercedes van. I quickly noticed that Giacomo was a very polite gentleman. We had chosen a wine tour to Montepulciano. We visited two... More

We were in Florence for a few days and decided we wanted to see some of the beautiful Tuscan countryside so had researched our options prior to our trip. After many emails back and forth with Giacomo we had our day planned and what a day it was. Giacomo picked us up at our hotel and from the minute we... More

We had the pleasure to work with Giacomo at Ghibellina Tours, to plan a very special day in Tuscany in June 2013. His love for his country shone through as he helped us custom select every venue that day, in a well-edited tour of the Montalcino and Pienza areas. The winery was a highlight... like visiting family friends with a... More

We didn't want to miss out on experiencing the little villages and countryside after attending a friend's wedding in the south of Tuscany, and Giacomo was the perfect solution. As a guide who genuinely loves the region, a tour with Giacomo in Tuscany makes you want to stay there, and skip the main cities - rich of culture though they... More

Our group of 3 toured for a couple of days with Giacomo patiently taking us to remote, wonderful Tuscan sites. This included a private wine tasting at a winery in Montalcino, San Polino, that was straight out of a movie set yet not scripted. He was fun, engaging, helpful, and insured that we had a great time, seeing Italy thru... More

If you are like us, you want to have an authentic Tuscan experience without having to wade through all the tourist traps, wait in long lines, or risk going to a place you won't enjoy. We also didn't want to have to rent a car in Italy because of the expense and our unfamiliarity with driving there (the cities can... More

We first met Giacomo when we got his contact and booked him for a day tour to Sienna and San Gimignano. Punctual and polite, he arrived at our villa to pick us up and proceeded to drive us to our destination. Along the way, Giacomo would point out interesting sights and facts as we sat comfortably in his Mercedes Vito... More
