“Two trips into the countryside”
Reviewed March 27, 2013

During our month in Florence, we have enjoyed two separate trips into the countryside with Filippo. One trip was toward Grave and the Chianti Region and the second was to Pisa and Lucca. Both were great! Filippo picked us up on time, in a clean van, and drove carefully. They were both most enjoyable, informative, and interesting day outings. Thank you for making our trips so worthwhile. Ellen Benjamin

“Transfer tour from Rome to Florence”
Reviewed February 24, 2013

We had to get our family of 6 from Rome to Florence with big bags, and we made a wonderful day of it with Fillipo. He took us to Monte Reggiano and San Gimignano on our way, and stopped at a spot where we got a wonderful view of Florence.

“Excellent service highly recommendable”
Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

Fillipo took us to Pisa and Lucca, he is very informative and passionate about his country, Tuscany and wine making in his region. He is also very helpful and knowledgeable. The next day Paolo drove us from Florence to Rome, driving through beautiful Tuscany and also stopping at Siena. When us reached Rome, it was very busy due to Children's day Festival. Paolo had to maneuver traffic to drop us at our hotel located in a pedestrian area. So thank you guys.

“Four years of wine tours and I am still convinced Filippo is the best!”
Reviewed December 15, 2012

I have been working with Filippo almost since his business began - he is reliable. knowledgeable and charming - we all enjoy his and his team's company and trust his driving and his infinite knowledge of Tuscany implicitly - it very reassuring to take a group of friends around with a private mini-van and guide and know they are not being simply fed a line!

“Professional, On time and Friendly Service”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

Filippo picked us up at Livorno where our cruiseship was docked and first drove us to Pisa. There was 4 of us and we rode in a van. It was clean and comfortable and Filippo had a headset with microphone so that all us could hear him clearly while he drove. After Pisa we went to Florence.

We first went to Piazza Michelangelo, which has a beautiful overlook of Florence. On the way you pass by beautiful villas. He then drove us into Florence, and took us to all the important sites. He also reserved a time for us for the Academia gallery to see the David. We took our time in the museum and afterwards we had lunch at Osteria del Porcellino, which Filippo had recommended to us. We had Ribollita which is a Florentine soup and of course pasta!

After lunch, he showed us where the Duomo was and the surronding area that we could explore on our own. It was a great day and Filippo was professional, friendly and was totaly flexible. We returned to our ship on time as well.

With Livorno being so far from Florence and having only one day to see it, I think having a driver tour guide was well worth it in order to maximize our time. We didn't have to worry about finding our way or stand in any lines and he knew how long it would take to get back to the cruise ship.

Thank you Filippo!
