We booked a family tour of Italy with Max in August 2022 and it was absolutely amazing. We had never been to Italy and the idea of a coach tour with set itinerary was not appealing to us; an online research led us to Max.

We emailed back and forth for several weeks, narrowing down what we wanted to do and where we wanted to go. Once everything was set, Max and his team took great care of us, even adding on a fifth person who joined us at the last minute (which involved setting up hotel accommodations for that person during the peak tourist season).

We toured Rome, the Amalfi Coast, Florence, Cinque Terre, and the Dolomites, spending several days in each place (except Cinque Terre which was a long, one day trip from Florence).

We were shuttled about in a private sprinter van which was wonderful and the drivers were excellent - telling us about the various places we were seeing while on the road and ensuring our safety. It was so nice not to have to drive as some locations (I am looking at you here Amalfi Coast and the narrow streets of Rome) were very dicey.

The hotels were generally excellent. Great continental breakfasts and perfectly located. A couple were kind of meh in terms of the rooms themselves, but the locations were all excellent: in the heart of where you wanted to be in each city. That made evening walks so much easier as you could just wander about, see so much history and beauty, and easily find your way back to the hotel.

Max also arranged the tours from each location and they too were generally excellent. He was even able to get us tickets to see the Statue of David on short notice (we forgot to book that in advance and only realized once we were in Florence).

Anyway, I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending Max and his team. We are planning a return trip to Italy in either 2023 or 2024 and will be using his agency again.

We were a party of 8 (4 couples) and were met timely at the port by our tour guide Aldo. Aldo was excellent in providing information throughout our day about our stops in Pisa and Florence. He was also fun and an excellent driver through the Italian traffic. He interjected stories as well as historical information, which made it even more enjoyable. We had plenty of time on our own to explore the highlights of each site and Aldo also brought us to a couple of areas in Florence that were lovely (a park and exclusive area with mansions). Overall, our experience with Tuscany in Tour was excellent and we had an awesome day visiting Pisa and Florence. Both Massimo and Aldo were great with the arrangements and the tour itself. We highly recommend Tuscany in Tour over the overcrowded tours through the cruise ship.

Such a fabulous day visiting 2 wineries and touring the beautiful countryside of Tuscany. Our personal driver, Aldo, could not have been more entertaining and knowledgeable. He accommodated our every need to make unscheduled stops for breathtaking photo opportunities. The first winery, Sant Appiano, was quaint and family owned. Amazing wine and delicious lunch. Then after a lovely drive, on to winery # 2, Tenuta Torciano. More wonderful wine tasting and more homemade cuisine. On the way back to the port, a quick stop by Pisa to see the leaning tower. That was a last minute request by us. We laughed, we ate, we drank, we took hundreds of photos and planned our next trip to Tuscany with our new best friend, Aldo. You don’t want to miss this phenomenal opportunity!!!

One of the best days of our European vacation! Aldo our guide was informative, entertaining and added so much from a local’s perspective. Tuscany is very hard to see by bus or train. This made it incredibly easy to see so much, comfortably, in one day. Don’t hesitate booking- you will be so glad you did!

This Company has a private tour under the caption La Dolce Vita and with a plan for visiting Italy for around a fortnight, I was quite interested in this tour. After three mails I finally managed to elicit a reply from a gentleman who signed off as Max.
Since my wife and I will be visiting Italy for the first time and since we are in our early 60s, it is obvious that we shall have questions INCLUDING questions on costs.
It was terribly disappointing that the gentleman's reply bordered more towards being rude rather than helpful and I somehow feel that seniors/elders are not desirable by the company or at-least the gentleman who replied to me. Having extensively travelled many countries and having interacted with any tour arrangers, this happened to be my FIRST EXPERIENCE where I really felt unwanted.

I HAVE NOT AVAILED THIS TRIP BUT SINCE THERE ARE REQUIRED QUESTIONS LIKE WHEN DID I GO ETC, WITHOUT WHICH MY VIEWS CANNOT BE INCLUDED, I HAVE MENTIONED SEPTEMBER 2022, AS THE MONTH WHEN I BEGAN COMMUNICATING.

Hello this is Max, I frankly don't understand the meaning of your review...:we don't want to have senior/elders people? The 99% of our customers are senior couples or families...and we love them! When we customize a private tour for our clients we always ask about their preferences, if they have been to Italy before, which are their interests and many other questions: this is extremely important for understand better what clients wants before planning their itinerary. Is not our style to be rude, just read all the previous reviews on this page, is written right the opposite. If you think that making lot of questions before planning an itinerary is "rude" I believe that you have never booked a private customized tour.

We had a fabulous experience with Tuscany In Tour on a one-day transfer from Florence to Montefollonico, Tuscany. Max was responsive and easy to work with in arranging the trip, and Aldo, our driver, was great! He arrived early, was waiting after our lunch stop in Arezzo, and when we jokingly said we needed a gelato, Aldo promptly found a gelateria! I would use this company again.

The service ethic is world class. Received daily updates was and drivers were always on time. Massimo was great and our stops was always insightful and interesting. His recommendations on shopping and where to eat was spot on. If we return to Italy there is only one company we will use.

wineries visited did not respect what the description mentioned- no known quality wineries. the first was a small boutique winery- however quaint and acceptable- they showed us how theu processed their wine and tasting was reasonably good. The 2nd was horrible: we entered a cafeteria style place, sat on a small terrace, were served a first vino nobile of terrible quality along with a few slices of ordinary salami and cheese, and then they served a 2nd vino nobile in the same glass and were politely greeted ‘thank you fir coming’. We had 1 stop at pienza and given 30 min to find our own place and eat and another 20 minutes to walk on a tourist street at Montepulciano. 4 hours driving on a 8 hour day.
Not worth the 440 euros for 4 of us. Do not recommend. Plus they don’t even ask for our opinion. I suggest you identify the wineries you wish to visit, call to reserve, and hire a private driver.

Thanks a lot for the time you have dedicated for write your review. We have this private tour on our list since more than 6 years and this is the first time we receive a review like yours....frankly we were all absolutely appalled. The tour last 8 hours and this time frame has always been enough for discover the highlights of this beautiful part of Tuscany. So if your tour started at 8am, the end was scheduled at 4pm (at your hotel). Is perfectly normal. The driver informed also that he had another service starting at 4.45pm so it was important to respect the schedules of each stop.... Unfortunately during the day you had some issues that delayed your trip: the departure from hotel started later, on the road your son threw up so the driver had to stop the car and clean everything for you...it was not easy. And without receiving any compensation! (that's was very sad). Of course these inconvenience has caused a delay on the timetable and not because of our fault or incompetence. This is the only reason why your stops in Pienza and Montepulciano were shorter than usual. Regarding the winery in Montepulcano: is a traditional and historical family winery since the 16th century known for the quality of their wines...In this tour is included only the wine tasting with no food but the owner of this winery wanted to offer you a snack of their cheese & salami together with the wine tasting. I frankly don't understand your sarcastic claim "...along with a few slices of ordinary salami and cheese...". It was COMPLIMENTARY, maybe you should have been more grateful.
