Giacomo was fantastic! He is easy going and speaks perfect English. He made every trip fun for our three 10 year old daughters and my husband felt like he was traveling with a buddy. He planned each day with a nice balance of our interests and our children's interests. He was flexible and always available when we changed our plans... More

Our small party consisted of an elderly lady (nana), me (mum) and son (who is autistic). Quite a difficult bunch to cater for! However Giacomo managed it beautifully. We went to the goat farm and had a cheese tasting session and then on to lunch at the vineyard, cooked by the owner. What a privilege it was to experience a... More

There were six of us in our holiday group to Tuscany and we hired Giacomo as a guide as we didn't want two separate cars and also we all wanted to be able to taste the wine during winery tours without having to worry about driving. Hiring Giacomo for two full days was the best thing we could have done,... More

Giacomo is an extremely knowledgable, friendly, and fun guide. We did the Chianti Classico tour, and were treated to information about the local history, vineyards, and sites. We visited 3 wineries and had a fantastic meal. The Chianti region is beautiful, and it was nice being able appreciate the scenery during the drive. We would absolutely book with Giacomo again.

We booked two full day tours with Giacomo for our groups one week stay in Certaldo. Ahead of the holiday, Giacomo provided some good advice, suggestions and agenda for the tours that we were due to take. He was always timely with responding back to emailed questions. For the tours themselves, Giacomo had a variety of sights to show off... More

Giacomo was our guide for a tour in Tuscany. He arrived exactly on time in a spacious van. There were 4 of us in our group. We had a full day tour that included a visit to a Goat Cheese Farm, lunch at Mac Dario's and a very educational drive around the countryside. Giacomo was very patient and informative. I... More

We gave up on driving the Italian roads after day 1. Giacomo was a blessing. He is very knowledgeable of the local history and sites. Over the course of a week, we visited several towns, wineries, historical sites and a coffee shop in his home town of Certaldo for some very special lattes. He is a great guide, prompt, reasonably...

We took the trip to Montepulciano and Montalcino. I was nervous booking this as it is an expensive trip and had one good and one bad review. Boy am I glad I took the chance. Our guide was Giacomo and he could not have been better!! He was so knowledgable and made everything so much more interesting and entertaining. It... More
