“Wouldn't use anyone else!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 November 2013

We have used Tuscan Sunshine Tours twice now, once for a week-long tour of Tuscany for a big birthday trip, and once for a solo quick visit to Florence with my 10 year old son. Both times, Stefano provided impeccable service and allowed us to see things through the eyes of a local. The first trip was with a group of 6 women, and Stefano showed up on time every day to take us to a different spot. He managed to check everything off of our list (with patience and a sense of humor), and then add his own don't-miss spots to each location. We thought we were hiring transportation, but we also got the tour guide expertise of a former hotel concierge (Stefano used to work for a top Florence hotel) and a local whose pride for his homeland showed through in every aspect of the tour. I cannot speak highly enough about this group. On the tour of Florence and Vinci with my son, Stefano was upset that he had forgotten to bring us a gift of the olive oil he harvests himself. Instead, he spent the time while my son and I toured Leonardo da Vinci's home and museum buying us a gift of local honey. I have traveled the world and had many guides, and I cannot recommend Tuscan Sunshine Tours highly enough.

“One of the best tour companies!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 November 2013

Franco and Stefano of Sunshine Tours are a class act. We traveled to Florence five years ago and were extremely fortunate to have been set up with both of them for a wonderful tour of the Tuscany region. One of our best days!
We returned to Florence this month with two other couples and contacted Franco once again.
He was gracious as always and took his time with us. We all the the most fantastic day.
You won't find anyone better!

“Professional and responsible !”

Loved the tour of gems of Italy. Though a bit rushed - we switched the itinerary at the last minute and our tour guide Stefano took us right where we wanted. Enjoyed the most amazing sunsets under the Tuscan sun!

“Franco from Tuscan Sunshine Tours was a fabulous tour guide”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 November 2013

My party of 6 was met at our cruise boat by Franco of Tuscan Sunshine Tours (October, 2013). He gave us a great tour of Pisa, Florence and the Chianti wine country with a stop for wine tasting on the way home. My husband, an avid historian, also asked for a quick trip to the Florence American Cemetery and Memorial where the headstones of 4,402 of our military dead are arrayed in symmetrical curved rows upon the hillside. It was just a quick stop along the way, but seeing the beauty and peaceful surroundings of this sacred space was a bonus on our tour. Franco was willing to accommodate any and all of our wishes. We could not have asked for a better guide or a better way to pack in so much on a one day tour. We all highly recommend Franco and Tuscan Sunshine Tours.

“Two wonderful days”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 October 2013

We recently engaged Franco to take us to Tuscan hill towns and wineries over 2 days. The itineraries were excellent. We started with the itineraries on the web site and then added and subtracted based on places we had been already and the specific experiences we wanted. Franco was marvelous, suggested excellent choices, very willing to work with us, and was very informative as he conducted the tours. We hope to engage him again!
