I cannot recommend Andrea and the tour enough. He was always on time, very friendly and knowledgable. If you are looking to tour the region, want to see the best places and see unbelievable scenery that other tours do not know about, call Andrea and his team. We travelled in luxury. It was an added bonus to a lovely trip.

On our May 2013 trip to Florence with friends, we booked a Chianti wine tour with Under the Tuscan Sun Tours. It was one of the best days of our trip to Italy. The Tuscan region is beautiful, and Andrea was the perfect host and tour guide. He was prompt in picking us up from our hotel, and we spent a wonderful day touring the countryside and learning so much about the culture and history of Tuscany from him. We also had a great time at both wineries. Pierluigi was quite the entertainer on our 2nd winery stop, and lunch there was absolutely delicious. We also especially enjoyed our brief visit at San Gimignano, as Andrea was gracious enough to adjust our route and include that unscheduled stop. We will definitely want to return there again next time we visit. We cannot say enough positive things about Under the Tuscan Sun Tours and Andrea. Our experience with them was outstanding from start to finish, and we would highly recommend them to everyone. The Dowdy and Scherer Families, Virginia USA

This is the worst tour I've been on. It was not planned out to a specific schedule, so we had an hour and a half to waste between wine tasting and the cooking class. Per our request, the driver took us to another winery for a tasting before the cooking class started, and assured us that the tasting fee would be covered by Under The Tuscan Sun. After the cooking class, our driver did not show up to take us to the dinner location as promised, instead we had to catch a ride with the chef. After the dinner, we were told we had to pay extra for the tasting fee we had in the middle of the day that was supposed to be covered by Under The Tuscan Sun. We got in a disagreement, since we were told the tasting fee was covered. Our driver (and the owner of the company) got mad and left us stranded in Tuscany instead of taking us back to our hotel in Florence. Lucky another tour guide from a different company overheard our conversations and offered to bring us back to Florence. I would not recommend this tour company.

Congratulations! Congratulations to this stupid and arrogant couple who claimed that our company would pay all the wine they wanted to drink Antinori (spent 150 Euros of wine). We invite you to follow the link below:
to take vision of the tour voucher that this cocky young couple bought using the following booking platform and you will see who is telling the truth! The tour who bought (from 10am until 22pm - so 12 hours of tour!) Included driver for tour in Chianti end with cooking class and dinner at Antinori winery and did not include NO WINE TASTING!.
The driver has been working for 12 hours for 240 Euros and was kind enough to visit these unpleasant people also San Gimignano (which was not included in the tour!). And this couple arrogant and rude demands that we pay 150 euro wine they drank!?!? I personally went to pick them up at the end of the day, they demanded me to pay 150 euro. I simply said NO and I Showed them the voucher to let them understand that they were THEIR BIG WRONG.
They had to settle Their debt and then I accompanied them to the hotel (as planned). Arrogant and drunken, heavily have offended me and my family blackberries than once. No one offends me and my family. This is the reason why The not touched the seats of my limo.

During our summer 2013 trip to Florence with two families (6 adults and 2 kids) we opted to take the All Tuscany (1 day) tour offered by Under the Tuscan Sun Tours. The tour was excellent, and a great value! There was no way we could have covered as much as we did so thoroughly without this tour. Our guide Andrea was spectacular using every minute of our time together efficiently. We learned so much about the Tuscany region, Italian History and picturesque towns we visited, all done so individually. We added in the town of Luca, which proved to be our favorite. Andrea recommended a bike rental company, which turned out great and best gelato stop in town. Under the Tuscan Sun Tours was a great choice for our family, we were extremely happy and would highly recommend them for any touring needs in the Florence area.

On our June 2013 trip to Florence we took the 1 day All Tuscany Tour with our guide Andrea and had a great experience. Pick-up was prompt and the van was comfortable and clean, stocked with maps ready for a day in the Tuscany countryside. Our guide was highly professional, knowledgeable and accommodating. We were traveling with our kids (age 8 & 10) and Andrea made them feel special and ensured that they were included in the day’s activities. We opted for the lunch and wine tasting option, which I would highly recommend. We learned so much about the Tuscany, Italian history and the Italian people. For the amount of Tuscany we saw the tour was a great value. Under the Tuscan Sun Tours was a great choice for our family and would defiantly recommend, and have recommended it to anyone.
