We had two great tours with I Just Drive.
San Miniato, Lucca and Pisa on Jan. 01
Monteriggione, Siena, San Gimignano and San Donato with wine tasting at no extra cost.
Both a good 10 hour tour in a brand new Mercedes Van with a great driver, Giovanni.
It is absolutely worthwhile.
We highly recommend I Just Drive.

After two days of rain, we decided we had enough of the museums and tourist sights in Florence and looked into a wine tour one morning. I Just Drive was able to arrange a private car and driver for a 1:30pm pick up. The tour through the countryside was beautiful and our driver, Thomaso pointed out many things and told great stories about the history of the region and the walled villages. We met a great couple on their honeymoon at the winery we visited and tasted a lot of good wines. The tour was fine, but the food, wine, and view of the vineyards was so excellent, we could have cared less about how the wine was actually made (we'd all been to wineries before). Anyway, back to the I Just Drive tours. This is a well-run absolutely first class outfit. We met another one of the drivers and he was a great guy too. If you speak English, Thomaos's English is probably better than most Americans and as a native Florentine who's family has been in the hospitality and tour business for three generations, he knows how to show you a great time and do it at your own pace. We never rushed - and we could go on to the next stop anytime we wished. And the private tour was so flexible he gave us options all along the way and we chose what we wanted to see wand how long we stayed in each village. Totally worth it for the private car comfort (new Mercedes sedan), but we saw one of their vans at the winery and that looked first class too. This was soooo much better than renting a car and doing a tour like this yourself. We're going to rent a car to go skiing this weekend, but it wouldn't have been the same going on a tour like this yourself. Highly recommend this for anyone - full day or half day. We did 6 hours and it was just right.

We took the evening tour up to Pizzale Michelangelo with Leonardo, being lucky enough to be the only passengers. A great, smooth drive, interesting tour audio and Leonardo provided some great commentary once we reached the top. Being in a vehicle in Italy can be hair raising at the best of times, but Leonardo made it a stress free experience. He's also an economist, so we had a great conversation at the top, following my questions. The prosecco was a fabulous addition. Thank you to 'I just drive' for the tour, Leonardo for the experience, and to the Davanzati hotel for the recommendation. Fabulous value at 18 euro per person.

2 couples were on a 5 country, 3-week adventure. The sunset tour in a Bentley limo by I Just Drive up to Piazzale Michelangelo overlooking Florence was the BEST money spent the entire trip. Leonardo was fun & informative; views were spectacular! The chilled Prosecco was delicious! We enjoyed it so much, we booked car & driver for a full day in Tuscany.Giovanni was our excellent guide this time. The van was comfortable and well-equipped; the entire day just flew by with amazing sights & unforgettable experiences. The 3 villages of Monteriggioni, Siena, & San Gimignano were unique & different; the winery & wines at Casa Emma were wonderful. We did this on November 10, 2012 and the tuscan hills, the vineyards, and olive groves were just beautiful in their Fall Colors. Having wifi and ipad available was just another bonus! What an enjoyable, special, fantastic way to see Tuscany! Highly recommended by all of us!! Connie & Jerry

We stayed at Hotel Davanzati and were recommended this limo drive by Fabrizio (I believe he is part-owner of this company). We booked the sunset tour on our last night in Florence (September 2, 2012). It was only 18 Euro each (we thought there was a catch), included a bottle of champagne, and lasted 1.5 hrs (7-8:30pm). The limo books up to 8 people per tour, but we were the only ones who booked that night, so it was like a private limo tour! Leonardo, our driver, picked us up near our hotel in a ``Bentley Limo`` (which I think is a converted Chrysler 300M). He took us to Piazzale Michelangelo for the most amazing views of Florence. It was partly cloudy that evening, so we didn`t see the best sunset, but the views of Florence are well worth it! We stayed up there for about 40 minutes, then he took us to a restaurant we had made reservations at. We would highly recommend this tour. It was one of the highlights of our honeymoon! Thank you to Fabrizio and Leonardo for an amazing experience! Matt and Andrea
