On May 20th 2022 I used this private service company to show my family around Pisa including the leaning tower. And Florence including the museum that has the statue of David. I was on a cruise so I had limited time. The price for a family of four to go to the leaning tower of Pisa was approximately $680 for a four hour excursion through the cruise company. I spent a little more than that for an entire day of information and two cities Not one through Nicola Scovena and their professional tour. Our ship was suppose to dock at 8:30 am but the ship,was late and they docked at 10:15 am so our wonderful driver Maria Clara called and rescheduled our ticket time to go up the leaning tower of Pisa that allowed for the ship’s delay. She was great, picked us up in a Mercedes’ Benz vehicle, clean, with bottled water in hand. She showed us Pisa and all the sights to see in beautiful Florence. She was the best tour guide that we could ever imagine her English was very good and her driving very professional, she got us to the ship on time as she has access to the port and left us right at the entrance to our ship.
I would 100% recommend this tour to everyone and ask for Maria Clara

We were cruising NCL Epic and contacted Nicola for a private shore excursion for 8 people. We had Luca as our driver and he was fantastic! We had no trouble finding him
at the pier and he kept us entertained on our drive to Rome. I was very appreciative of the suggestions that they made for us and would highly recommend them to anyone.

I definitely recommend working with Nicola Scovenna NCC. Nicola was very accomodating with regard to some changes we wanted to make to the itinerary while also providing practical advice on transportation and timing issue. It was also very helpful to be able to purchase tickets to individual locations through the company.

Our tour guide was Maria Clara who was excellent. She was clearly invested in ensuring we had the best tour possible, visited as many sites as could be arranged in a few hours time, being very creative with pick-up and drop-offs to minimize walking (my husband is handicapped so limited walking was important). Maria Clara's spoke english fluently and was also a great conversationalist.

We engaged the services of Nicola to provide transfers and tour/transfers throughout our two week stay in Tuscany. In the planning stages he was able to provide suggestions on routing, locations to visit and accommodation possibilities. His advice was always excellent and contributed significantly to our success in planning our independent tour of Tuscany. Nicola is very personable, his English is excellent and the vehicle was modern, clean and spacious. Nicola was willing to modify our itinerary as we changed our minds or identified new priorities. In summary he went above and beyond what any one could expect and I recommend him without reservation if you are looking to book transfers or transfer/tours.

I truly recommend Nicola Scovenna for any services required throughout Tuscany and its surroundings. We hired him to pick my college girlfriend and I from Rome to take us to Florence while stopping in several towns in a span of three days. Nicola suggested and even included more towns into our itinerary, only to make our trip more beautiful. He drove us from from Lazio thru Umbria to Tuscany into beautiful Florence where we stayed for a week and then back to Rome. In the meantime we learned, ate, visited and saw the beauty of Bagnoregio, Spoleto, Orvieto,Val’d Orcia, Montepulciano, Peruggia, Assisi, Pienza and so much more. Our experience with him was amazing. An excellent driver who knew the routes to take; considerate; flexible so that he could always accommodate us. He suggested places to have lunch that were an experience on its own. Same occurred with areas to get a good glass of wine and learn the history of its process. He knew were to park and were to walk in the different towns. He was always punctual and always nice We recommend Nicola Scovenna to anyone willing to have an excellent time and to enjoy, with safety and knowledge, the beautiful region of Tuscany and its surrondings. I can’t wait to go back and take my family with me, and to make this trip again with Nicola Scovenna.

Lucca was our private car driver for a day in Rome. He picked us up in Civitavecchia (where ship docked), and we spent the day. Lucca has a great personality and is very knowledgeable about the sights in Rome. He showed us some areas of Rome that tourists rarely see (e.g. his favorite church, which was amazing).
He made sure we had easy walking access to the sights (he miraculously found parking close by) and access to clean, free bathrooms. In addition, he kept up a lively commentary on the history and sights of Rome while wending through side streets amazingly avoiding traffic jams!
We would certainly use the services of Nicola Scovenna again and ask for Lucca.

I read several reviews for excursion guides to Florence in anticipation of the cruise we just came back from. I don't like large bus cruise tours so I was looking for a reasonable private tour for the four of us. Nicola Scovenna Tours was highly recommended so I contacted him for info. I'm so glad that I did. He came back quickly with information and even picked up on a change in docking site from Livorno to Carrara for our ship before our travel agent knew about it! Nicola quickly gave me suggestions for an alternative to Florence because the docking change would mean an extended, too long drive into Florence and back. (The cruise line had done us no favor in slipping in the docking change.) Nicola saved the day. Even though he doesn't normally have a tour out of the port of Carrara, he went out of his way to arrange a beautiful day visiting some small towns and taking us to a lovely spot for lunch. We couldn't have asked for a more knowledgeable, attentive and kind tour guide. By the end of the day, he was more like a new friend. He and his wife, Susy, were ever patient with my numerous questions and emails and always quick to respond. I hope to return again someday and be able to arrange another tour with Nicola Scovenna.

I am not usually compelled to write reviews, but after a two week trip to Europe, using tour guides and transportation almost daily, we really felt it necessary to commend Nicola Scovenna. Suzy's communication was comforting and attention to detail was far over and above the rest. Nicola was the only company that called a day before to ask whether we needed anything the following day, such as a car seat for our children. A call!! That was awesome! Thank you for that Suzy!! Given most of the experiences we had prior on our trip, this was more comforting than you could know.

THEN, on the day we were picked up, we had the pleasure of meeting Maria Clara! If you are ever so lucky to see she will be your guide, you are in for a real treat! Clara made us feel, in an instant, that we were being picked up by family. She isn't a driver, or a guide, she was family. This lasted from the minute we met her to the minute we left the van, and still as I write this. Our day was planned in advance, as best we could. When we started driving. Clara dug in immediately asking us questions and our trip morphed into a much more relaxed perfect day. Just what we needed. We hadn't pre-planned a wine tasting, and Clara worked tirelessly while we were exploring to make it happen for us. Thank you Maria Clara, you will be a friend forever. Thank you Suzy and the rest of the staff at Nicola, for making our trip to Tuscany one our family will cherish always.

Maria Clara came to our rescue. We had a private tour scheduled with a different group and driver. Our driver did not show up at the scheduled time. Fortunately for us, Maria was there waiting for her group (and they were late). We called our driver, but couldn't get through. Maria offered to help us, calling the number for our driver, which as it turned out, had a typo in it. Since she spoke Italian, she was able to quickly sort through the mix-ups. Long story short, she was able to reach our guide, get the correct number for our driver and find out that he had misunderstood the time but was on his way. She did all of this just to help us out and we were not even using her company. She was an angel.

Our group of 12 friends on the Oceania cruise engaged the services of Nicola Scovenna for a tour of Siena and San Gimigrano inTuscany. It was a relaxing and enjoyable excursion. Nicola was fast to respond to my booking and replied to all my queries promptly. We were provided with two vans and two charming drivers cum guides, Maria and Teresa, who drove us safely and back to the ship on time. A lovely lunch and wine tasting was arranged at a vineyard and we enjoyed it. Highly recommend the services of Nicola!
