First used his services in 2010, then in 2014 and again this year. He is very knowledgeable and cares about the region, its people and future. He always thinks of great little places to take us where the tourists usually don't go and will customize to your wishes. This year, we experienced an Italian train strike the day we were... More

We had a wonderful tour of the Chianti region with our tour guide. He made many fun stops in places we never would have known about and gave us information about Italian customs and culture. We enjoyed the tour so much that we hired Jacamo again for a second day of touring in his comfortable Mercedes van. Highly recommend this... More

I emailed Giacomo thanks to great ratings on TripAdvisor. I wanted to organise a Saturday tour of Chianti with him for a group of 14 adults. Unfortunately, he'd already been booked for that day (no surprise, he's clearly brilliant & quite rightly in high demand). The huge majority of tour companies would have left it at that - or not...

When we were looking for a transfer within Tuscany, an independent tour guide recommended Giacomo from Ghibellina Tours. He was such a wonderful and knowledgeable driver, that we ended up hiring him for private tours for additional days in the area. Since he grew up and lives in Tuscany, he shared stories and traditions with us, further instilling our love... More

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...

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
