“Under the Tuscan Sun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 12, 2013

We were in Florence 5/1/12 and Andrea charmed us with his persona and knowledge of Tuscany. He took us to Siena, San Gi Mgnano, Wine Tasting at Tenuta Torciano, Monteriggioni and Pisa. Andrea's English is excellent and his knowledge on the history of the area is exceptional. He went out of his way to make our day in Tuscany perfect. We would definitely recommend Andreas and would use him again. Thanks again for a perfect day in Tuscany,
Karyn, Brisbane Australia.

“Fabulous!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2013

We were in Florence 6/2012 and booked a tour with Andrea. We went to Pisa, Tuscany and San Gimignano. Andrea was not only knowledgeable, but his stories were very historic and interesting. He went above and beyond what was expected. If we return to Florence, we would definitely use him again! He made our trip very special.

“Under The Tuscan Sun Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2012

You couldn't ask for a better tour guide than Andrea. He is knowledgable, charming, and anxious to make your day unforgettable. We spent a wonderful day touring around Siena, San Gimignano, visited a winery for a tour and lunch, then ended up at Michelangelo Plaza, with breathtaking views of Florence. He took us to some of the local shops in Florence for leather and jewelry. I would only suggest that you do your research on prices because these places were quite high. Andrea was also available the following day so he took us outlet shopping which was much better than taking a bus and battling the Chinese tourists. My only regret was not staying in Florence longer. Thanks Andrea for a great time!

“Fun and laughs under the Tuscan sun!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

Our family - a group of 9 people ages 11-75 booked a day with Andrea to see the Tuscan countryside. He was prompt and waiting to pick us up in his well air conditioned spotless Mercedes vans. Andreas English was perfect. He entertained us with information and fun facts about our surroundings, and our children (who are "typical teenagers" loved the trip - and found Andrea interesting and hilarious). He gave us pointers of what to see and do in each of the cities we visited - as well, he arranged a winery lunch for us that was out of this world - fabulous! We visited Siena, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano & a beautiful vista in Florence.
Well worth it!

“Florence was amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 6, 2012

Recenlty my husband and I were in Florence. Andrea at Under the Tuscan Sun was our guide for the day. What a great guide he is!!! Perfect english, well traveled and very knowledgeable about Italy and all she has to offer. We did a private cooking class with Laura at Florence Cooking , we toured the city of Florence, the Duomo, the Arno, the City and all its glory. We also had a side trip to Pisa which was Amazing! Andrea and his tour guide Michael even got us into the La Galleria dell'Accademia museum the day they were on strike and we got a private tour to see the original Michael Angelo. We loved Florence and can not wait to go back to to see Andrea and to cook with Laura..... Sue and Nick Covarrubias, Ventura California
