Hands down the best wine tour guide that we have ever had! Guido has a vast array of knowledge on Italian and French wines, his passion and enthusiasm shine and you can tell that he truly loves his craft. A Tuscany wine tour is definitely different but we enjoyed the more intimate feel of a smaller tour as compared to Napa or Sonoma, CA. The Tuscan countryside is absolutely beautiful and the Italian restaurant that Guido recommended for lunch was superb. Guido is professional as they come and just a genuine great guy!! I highly recommend him if you have a passion for wine. :)

Guido was absolutely perfect. I cannot say enough about him and his tour. I have to say that Guido is an authority on the Tuscan wines but admittedly our party was not too interested in wine. He changed the itinerary to match our interests which focused more on olive oil, something else Guido is an authority on! We did gain an appreciation for the wine that we were not expecting. Guido picked us up right at our hotel and took care of the driving and everything else. Please don't hesitate to contact Guido when you want a tour of the Tuscan wine and/or olive oil country. He will tailor the tour to your likes and desires. Easily our favorite part of our trip to Italy!

Be in no doubt that Guido is the absolute authority of Tuscan wine when you book with him. We had a full day touring some of the gems of Brunello and the whole experience was organized to perfection. A great mix of vineyards (rather than the traditional one or two ‘celebrity’ sites) an excellent lunch, amazing wines and a very very knowledgeable host all combined to make an unforgettable day. Guido’s English is excellent, as is his experience in wine making, and of course, tasting. We had a wonderful day and would whole heartedly recommend his tours. We will be back for more next year!

I have now had the pleasure of being on two trips with Guido--a tour through Chianti with my family, and a tour through Montalcino with friends. Both groups agreed, hands down, that our day with Guido was a highlight of the trip. Guido plans every element to make your day perfect. His knowledge is seemingly endless, and you spend the morning driving through the gorgeous landscapes of Tuscany while learning about the wines of your destination. Every winery he selected has been more unique, charming and gorgeous, with charismatic winery owners to give you a private experience through their winery. He ensures that you see other aspects of your chosen region, whether stopping at an 11th century abbey, still in use, for a visit, or stopping at various Chianti towns to allow for exploring. He is professional at every turn, and takes an obvious pride in both his homeland, as well as ensuring the very best experience for his guests. I cannot recommend him highly enough, and if I'm lucky enough to find myself in Tuscany for a third time, I'll likely be booking yet another tour with Guido.

Guido met us at the dock of our cruise ship in Livorno. There were four of us and we had more than enough room in his comfortable van. He was born and raised in a small town in Tuscany so he definitely has local knowledge. We toured the beautiful Tuscan countryside as Guido gave us an amazing education on the Chianti and Chianti Classico regions. We stopped in San Gimignano which is a wonderful medieval town. Guido dropped us at a wonderful Osteria where we had a great lunch on our own. We then stopped for wine and olive oil tasting before heading back to our ship. This was a very full day, from 8:30 am to 5:30 pm and was worth every penny. Guido is extremely personal, fun, and knowledgeable and you will leave him knowing you have made a new friend.
