“Forever changed the way we look at olive oil !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2013 via mobile

Sergio was wonderful! What a lovely man! The olive oil tour changed us! The first thing we did when we returned to the states was to get rid of all of the olive oil that didn't have the "fresh grass smell" which we learned from our tour. What a difference. We have been back a week and our entire family has a completely different view of olive oil now! It's wonderful! The winery was fabulous...a great experience....and those wines!!!!! Sergio was just so kind! We had a wonderful day in Tuscany that we will never forget!

“Tuscan Food And Wine Tours”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

My Wife and daughter had the pleasure of Sergio's company for two days this July. I want to review our tours from a food point of view. We made a point of requesting lunch on both days of our tours and for a very reasonable increase in price per person was happily accommodated by Sergio. Our first day was the San Gimignano and Chianti tour with a stop at Capella Sant' Andrea
wineries where they specialize in Vernaccia di San Gimignano. Our wonderful hostess Flavia gave us a tour of the facilities and then served us a wonderful home cooked Tuscan meal with wine pairings. An absolute delight and the highlight of our day. On day Two we did the Off the Beaten Track and Olive Oil Tour. We visited the San Leo Olive farm. We learned how to tell the difference between good oil and bad and were then treated to the most wonderful home cooked
Tuscan lunch. Patrizia our hostess was very accommodating and served simple and yet wonderfully tasty Stuffed Ped peppers and Pasta. In conclusion Sergio showed us places we never would have seen and allowed us to experience the wonderful Tuscan wine and food culture. If you love food and wine and all that is Tuscany, take a tour with Sergio.

“Tuscany Wine Country Tour with Sergio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

My two daughters and I toured Chianti with Sergio. It was one of the best days we have ever had. The countryside where he took us was breathtaking. His knowledge of wine and the lessons he taught us were so much appreciated. He took us to two wineries where we learned a lot as to how wine was made and how to appreciate good wine. He is a very charming person to be in the company of and we had a fabulous day.
I also have to compliment him of his choice of restaurants for our lunch. Food was wonderful and the view couldn't be compared. Lucretia Callen

“Touring with Sergio !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 8, 2013

Anyone wanting a fantastic tour guide of Tuscany and it's wineries should really consider going with Sergio. He was the most amazing guide for my group of 12. His advice was always right on and he guided us in the right direction. His knowledge and personality were terrific and made our trip to Italy that much more special.

“Lovely day spent in the countryside with Sergio!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

My partner and I were keen to see (and in my case photograph!) the 'postcard Tuscany' which is in the Val d'Orcia region south of Siena. We didn't want to drive ourselves and couldn't find many tours covering this area until we found Sergio! After reading reviews on TA we decided to go for it, and boy were we glad we did! Sergio picked us up bang on time from our hotel and we set off with some photo pit-stops on the way. I had requested to see some poppy fields and he was happy to add this in to out itinerary. Sergio definitely knows the best spots for photos ops and was keen to help me get a good photo know matter what it took to get it!!! We also stopped in Pienza and Montalcino which were both lovely! As a tour guide Sergio definitely knows his stuff and is very friendly, and the van we travelled in was immaculate and comfortable (there is wifi available too). We had a wonderful and memorable day with Sergio and would definitely do it again!
