“A Must Tour to Chianti”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

Our new best friend Emanuele picked us up promptly at 9 for a full day tour of the Chianti region! He enlightened us with his knowledge of architecture and history of the Tuscany region. His English was great and he has a wealth of knowledge. He has a degree in landscape architecture and I am a horticulturist...it was a match made in heaven. He easily addressed and answered my agriculture/horticulture related questions...even pointing out shrubs and trees along the way I had asked him about! We enjoyed a wonderful tour of Siena and then the best meal we have had so far at the winery Casa Emma. We really received a wonderful education on wine making and detailed descriptions of each course. Everything was fresh and homemade. After our lunch at Casa Emma we traveled through more of the Chianti region touring a small medieval village that was once a fortress and a nearby small village where I purchased an olive oil/balsamic vinegar dipping bowl combo which will go perfectly with the evoo and Modena balsamic vinegar (aged 12 years) that I also purchased prior to this tour! Emanuele was animated, funny and a great tour guide. I hope when you book with Tuscan Sunshine Tours you get Emanuele as your guide! You will not regret it!

“Delicious summer trip in Tuscany”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Back to Tuscany for the second time, my friends and me made the experience of a new tour along Chiantishire and Siena. We left in the first morning (we were based in Florence) with a very confortable car driven by a sweet and elegant Florentine lady, fluently speaking english and very skilled not only in driving but also in telling us dozens of old and new curiosities about the places we were visiting and their residents habits.
She showed us personally an antique cellar into a nice country winery, where we had also a yummy wine tasting!, and finally we arrived to Siena, one of the most stunning cities ever seen.
Our driver was so kind to show us a lot of hidden corner of Siena town, further to the local materpieces, mainly interesting as well.
Wonderful day because of Tuscany, because of her and her Company!

“EXCELLENT tour!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 8, 2012

We had booked this tour only a week out from visiting Florence based on other reviews on tripadvisor. Thank goodness, because the tour was amazing! My family, wife and 3 year old, had decided to do a private day tour to Pisa, then to Tuscany and tour/eat at a winery. It was amazing...Franco did an outstanding job and customized our tour for what we wanted to see within a day. Pisa and Tuscany aren't THAT close to each othe either so it was very nice to get it all in one day. Mercedes van was nice and comfortable as well. Seriously give these two guys, Franco/Stefano a try you won't be disappointed. Very knowledgeable of the entire country as well. Price was cheaper than others I was quoted on as well. Would HIGHLY recommend them!

“Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2012

In late July our group of 6 used Franco and Stefano for two all day tours. We had one of them each day. We did a tour of Luca and Pisa with a winery stop(Montecarlo) at midday for lunch. It was an excellent day and the winery was especially fun.

We also used them to transfer us from Florence to Rome with a sightseeing stop in Orvieto. Again everything was great. We arranged this with them by e-mail ahead of time. Their prices are not cheap, but are fair.

“Don't even think of trying any1 else”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 28, 2012

Stefano only and only stefano was the reason for an amazing tour. I would recommend that try that this person is your guide and you will love your trip. We covered wine tasting, siena, san gimmano, pisa everything in one day and superbly planned.
