We first met Giacomo when we got his contact and booked him for a day tour to Sienna and San Gimignano. Punctual and polite, he arrived at our villa to pick us up and proceeded to drive us to our destination. Along the way, Giacomo would point out interesting sights and facts as we sat comfortably in his Mercedes Vito passenger van.

After our first day trip, we couldnt get enough and proceeded to organise more trips with Giacomo. We visited Pisa and Lucca on aother day trip, went to Florence twice for day trips, Villa Basilicca up in the mountains for the chestnut festival, Chianti for farm tour and olive oil farm visit with tasting of wine and oil.

Giacomo is very professional in his services and yet every so friendly. He is also very prompt in his email replies. If you are looking for a personalised chauffeur and day trip service, it really dosent get any better than this!

It was recommended to me by a friend to do a day tour with Giacomo whilst staying in Florence, and what a great recommendation it was. Giacomo was very organised with his communication and the planning of the tour a month or so before our visit, and on the day was at our hotel right on time. On the day we visited a number of different places in the Chianti region which had been planned with Giacomo previously. It was great to spend the day with someone so passionate and knowledgable about the area, and throw in a sensational lunch and the day was complete! Thanks Giacomo for one of the highlight days of my visit to Italy.

This were a perfect day for us. Very professional guide with an excellent knowledge of the geography and history of the area.

Since my girlfriend had a broken foot, we weren't quite sure what we could or couldn't do before we booked the tour.
On short notice, Ghibellina Tours recommended a nice 4hrs trip for us which would include a winery, castle and the city of Castellina.
After the first visit to a winery we asked if we could continue with a couple of more wineries. The guide took a few phone calls and fixed a tasting on a couple of more wineries which matched our criteria.

All together a recommended tour were the guide adapted himself in order to give us the perfect day.

This is a wonderful tour company and their luxurious and air conditioned Mercedes van will customize the perfect tour through Tuscany. We had a great guide Giocamo who knew all the out of the way special places that will make your trip to the Tuscan region fabulous.

My husband and I spent two weeks exploring various parts of Italy. The entire trip was wonderful but one of the most memorable and pleasant days of our trip was the day spent with Giacomo exploring the Tuscan countryside. Giacomo picked us up at our hotel in Florence and drove us to two walled villages in Tuscany. We visited two wineries and had lunch at a local restaurant where were happy to try dishes recommended by Giacamo as truly reflective of the Tuscan cuisine. Giacomo's love and knowledge of his native countryside were reflected in his informative descriptions and explanations of the things we were experiencing and seeing. We were truly impressed with his knowledge of wines and the process of production. We highly recommend using Giacomo for your next visit to the Tuscan countryside.
