“Best day in Italy!”
Reviewed May 5, 2013

Our family of 4, including 2 teenagers found this to be one of our fondest memories. When asked what to do in Italy we tell everyone to hire Gianni for a great trip. We had a great day seeing the surrounding area of Siena. Gianni is extremely knowledgeable and takes you to not only great sites but off the beaten path quaint villages. We had a fantastic lunch at a family run spot and a visit to a wonderful vineyard. We can't say enough about this tour, guide and service.

“Like having your best friend take you for an amazing customized day tour.”
Reviewed March 28, 2013 via mobile

We loved every second of our very full day touring southern tuscany. Gianni was such a wonderful tour guide and driver. He had so much knowledge and pride for the area. He customized the day based out exactly our tastes and we felt he gave us a picture of real tuscany, not just the tourist stops. He was so much fun to hangout with and we will always remember this amazing day! It truly was as if we hired a best friend for the day. :)

“A great way to see Tuscany”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

My husband and I booked a private tour with Gianni of Tours Around Tuscany and had a great day. He is very knowlegable about so many topics from ancient history to current events. His English is very good. We went to small villages off the tourist route, a Benedictine abbey, sampled local wines, and totally enjoyed seeing the countryside. Had lunch at a local place with homemade pasta and wine. We both had a great day and if/when we return to Siena, we will contact Gianni again for another day tour in a different direction.
He is very busy in the high season and I can understand why.

“Truly Excellent Tour!”
Reviewed March 5, 2013

We booked two trips with Gianni during the week we spent in Siena. Completely hassle-free, he was right on time to pick us up at our hotel. Gianni was extremely knowledgable and you could see that he was really proud of the history of this beautiful area. Both tours involved visits to wineries, and Gianni is also very knowledgable about the wines that come from Tuscany. He will tailor your time together to suit your needs and wants, and was very generous about time for photographs.He knows the area very well and you will certainly see some amazing sights far off the beaten path. Both tours were certainly among the highlights of our time in Italy. I can recommend Gianni without reservation, and would encourage anyone traveling to the area around Siena to try and book him for a tour. I can assure you you will not be disappointed.

“Gianni (tours around Tuscany)”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

Gianni took our family party through Tuscan Villages, Siena and the countryside on a cold January 2013 day. He was perfect. I can highly recommend him. If you want a knowledgable, charming and multilingual driver-guide, look no further. Charles M.
