I can’t say enough good things about our tour with Riccardo. If you are visiting Florence or the Tuscany region, absolutely book with Cruises on the road in Tuscany. Our family of 6 had an incredible time seeing Florence and the Chianti region and Riccardo made sure every detail was taken care of. He was very entertaining and we left feeling like he was a new member of our family. He is as good as it gets!!

Riccardo and Cruises on the Road in Tuscany solved a transportation challenge for us AND made the trip delightful. We planned to travel by train from Florence to Cinque Terra but wanted to stop in Piza and do an overnight in Lucca, which seemed only accessible by bus while dragging luggage around (not ideal). Riccardo put together a great driving tour for us from Florence to Piza where we enjoyed the sights, and then to our hotel in Lucca for day 1; then for day 2 he picked us up and gave us a driving tour to our hotel in Cinque Terra, and took us to a beautiful seaside restaurant for lunch in Porto Venere along the way. All the while, he commented on the points of interest and gave us suggestions for the rest of our stay in Liguria and Tuscany. We had such a great time and will definitely plan an adventure with him again.

We had a great time with Riccardo. I asked for a truly Italian day and he delivered. He was very pleasant, funny, knowledgeable and we had the added benefit of enjoying a wonderful lunch together by the seaside, Gelato and coffee along the way. His tour was the highlight of our trip and we would recommend him to anyone visiting the Tuscany region.

Took his personal time to extend our day and show us a site not originally on our tour.

As always time with Riccardo never disappoints. Seeing him again Post COVID was a blast. He is still as funny and knowledgeable as ever. This time he picked my friend and I up in Venice we spent a few days in Choggia along the sea and then off to explore Verona. That city was a delight! A morning in San Sirmione and the afternoon along Lake Garda wrapped up our trip together. Highly recommend you book some travel time with Riccardo and Cruises on the Road in Tuscany. You won't be disappointed!

We just returned from beautiful Italy after a dream trip with our 2 adult children, their spouses and my son's mother in law. My son was interested in a cooking class and this lead me to Ricardo and Cruises on the road in Tuscany. Best find ever!! Through email I explained what we were looking for while we stayed in Lucca and Ricardo delivered. Boy did he deliver!! We met him at 9am in Lucca and he gave us a history of Lucca and then drove us in a very comfortable van to a house in the country. There we met Nadia, our chef. She is such a lovely person and we spent hours there in bliss cooking and learning and eating. It was one of the best days of our life!!!! The meal, wine, and time together was superb!!!! Afterward we went to a family owned winery which was delightful. While there my daughter asked if Ric could figure out a way for us to go to Cinque Terre the next day. We had tried to plan it ourselves but couldn't work it out. But Ric did!!!! We were driven by Wolfgang to the ferry in Portavenere and then given directions on where to get off the ferry in Verrazano. He even had made a lunch reservation at a sweet restaurant by the water. Then we went to Monterosso where we visited and caught a train to La Spezia and were met by Wolfgang who drove us back. It was amazing!! Thank you to Michela in the office who does a terrific job explaining everything in writing and handles the payments. You are the best! Basically Ric was born to make your visit to Italy the best time ever. There are no words to thank him enough for making our trip to Lucca one of the very best trips of our life. Thank you Ric!!!!!!!!!

Riccardo planned a fantastic afternoon of wine tasting for us in the Lucca countryside. We were impressed with the detailed itinerary for our day. Riccardo met us in our hotel in Lucca as planned. He had a wonderful personality and was an excellent guide of the area! At the first winery of the Montecarlo region, we enjoyed a farm to table lunch/olive oil tasting paired with 7 wines. At the second, we visited an organic winery in a villa built in 1731. We tasted 4 different organic wines paired with delicious cheese. We thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon and highly recommend Riccardo and Cruises on the Road!

We used Tuscany Cruises on the Road for a day tour from our cruise ship docked at Livorno. We visited Pisa, then Lucca followed by wine tasting at a vineyard in the Tuscan hills. Communication was excellent from Riccardo straight from our first inquiry and he was very helpful with suggestions for the day's itinerary. Remo was our driver and he was fantastic. Knowledgeable, informative, relaxed and really friendly. It almost felt as if he was just another member of our family for the day. We had three small children ( who were not always easy) and he was just great with them. We loved all of the places we visited and if we were in the area again, would definitely use them next time......and ask for Remo :0))

We met up with riccardo for day excursions on a recenr Mediterranean cruise. From the poet of La spezia , at my request we visited Cinque Terre and then at riccardos suggestion Porto Venere. Day 2 from Livorno , we went to Pisa and Lucca. It is hard to do 2 towns in one day but we managed ! In Pisa, riccardo took us to see more then jus the tower and get a flavor of Pisa. I wantf to spend more time in Lucca so his tour was intensive from the old Romam walls to 7th generation made focaccia bread, to countryside lunches And Lucca villas, and beautiful churches. This day spent with riccardo was one of our best on our vacation. I felt more like a family member was taking us around then a tour guide. If you are looking for a fantastic day in Lucca or the Tuscan region, ,look no further

Our family traveled to Florence and Lucca in May 2016 and Tuscany Cruises on the Road Came highly recommended. Riccardo picked the four of us up in a large Mercedes van for a day of touring Siena and San Gimignano with a suggested stop for an incredible lunch, wine and olive oil tasting. The afternoon was fabulous, learning the history of the Tuscan area and the time passed so quickly with Riccardo's lively personality! We had such a great experience, we hired (and were fortunate he was available) Riccardo to take us up to the CInque Terra region from Lucca. He suggested we ferry down through the villages and then on to Porto Venere. To see these towns from the water is incredible, and I was so grateful that he suggested Porto Venere as we would never have gone there had he not suggested it. Riccardo picked us up from Porto Venere for the drive back to Lucca and we were so happy to just get in his comfortable van for the drive home!
I highly recommend hiring Tuscany Cruises on the Road for your traveling adventures around and in Tuscany. Riccardo was on time, knowledgeable about the area, spoke fantastic English (thank goodness as we do not speak Italian!) and has a terrific personality. Having a private driver allowed us to see more of the things we wanted to see with limited time. It makes a big difference!
