My husband and I and our 2 friends recently returned from a trip to Rome and Florence. One of the highlights was our tour of Tuscany with Fillipo. We did not want to drive, nor did we want to do a bus tour since we wanted something flexible. We left the itinerary up to him since none of us had ever been to Tuscany; we only specified we would like to visit a winery. It couldn't have been better, we went to Greve, a terracota factory, a short stop at a town which was formerly a castle, and a winery where we had lunch. Fillipo is delightful and a very knowledable guide. He pointed out interesting sites along the way, and explained thoroughly everything we were visiting. The tour was worth every euro. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend him, even gave his name to our local travel agent.

We had the great fortune to use the services of Filippo with Tuscany Car Tours on October 4th this year. He spoke excellent English and was very knowledgeable as well he designed a tour that took into account what we wanted to see that day. We met him in the port at Livorno as we were cruising with Celebrity Cruises. He took us into Florence and guided is to many spots that were a highlight of the city giving us free time as well to wander on our own. Then the highlight was a drive to the Chianti wine region to a local vineyard which served us a 4 course lunch paired with their wines which was absolutely delicious. He explained the grape growing process and even showed us into the operation itself where we saw how the wines are made and stored. All in all we would highly recommend his company and his service. We were very impressed. Do not hesitate to book with Filippo. A wonderful way to your this beautiful region of Italy. Denis and Ingrid, Ottawa, Canada

We had a wonderful day with Paolo touring the Tuscan countryside. Loved Greve and the wine tasting and Casa Emma, with a wonderful lunch on the terrace overlooking the vineyards and olive trees. Just gorgeous! Also loved watching the terra cotta pot making! (We thought his rooster story seemed more believable, as well!) The van was large and comfortable for our family group of 7 adults.

To say that our holiday was only made possible by Filippo and Paolo would not be an understatement. When I e-mailed to arrange for tours and transfers, Filippo was so responsive and detailed that I knew we wouldn't have to worry. He was always punctual, patient with our late minute changes, kind and generous with his time, and had a great sense of humor. Paolo was the same way, always helpful and smiling. We used Tuscany Car Tours for our transfers (airport, train station, from/to Florence) as well as for two tours- full day Chianti tour and full day Cinque Terre tour. We had a large group, requiring two vans for each of the tours and they were long days but we always felt that we were in good hands. I wouldn't hesitate to use Filippo and Tuscany Car Tours again, and I can highly recommend them to others.

My husband and I wanted a day outside of Florence so we could see the countryside. A combination of Siena and Chianti was the perfect answer. Filipo picked us up and drove us all day long in a very comfortable and spacious van. He started by taking us to a hill-top spot in Florence so we could have an overview of the city. On the way to Siena, we learned so much about the history, customs and current conditions. His knowledge was deep, and we were grateful to receive so much more than a superficial monologue. We had time to stroll in several small, quaint places, while "feeling" the tone of the people and the neighborhoods. Our wine-tasting in Chianti and personal tour of the winery was very special. A stop for gelato, and our 9 hour day came to an end, seeming more like 5 or 6 hours. Filipo gave us many choices along the way, so we actually were able to plan our day as we drove. When we hugged good-bye, it was as if were were leaving a valued friend.
