We recently took a wine tour with Guido and it was GREAT!
Guido has more knowledge about wine than I think ever existed.
We toured Tuscany and visited and tastes at 2 different wineries.
We also toured 2 hill towns that were far off the usual tourist path.
We ate lunch at an outstanding local Tuscan Restaurant.
We also stopped in Pizza to take a look at the Leaning Tower.
Guido speaks excellent English and was charming and informative.
I would definitely recommend Guido's Tours without reservation.

We were a group of 8, joined the tour on the recommendation of two gentlemen who had previously toured with Guido....they assured us we would not be disappointed and they were right! From start to finish our day with Guido was interesting, fun, and informative! We never knew you could learn so much about wine! Guido is truly a professional and extremely passionate and knowledgable about the region and the wines! He took us off the beaten track to some small villages and wineries where we did not even see other tourists.....what a wonderful day!

With a name like Guido, you can pretty much assume you'll enjoy yourself.

Guido is a kind and incredibly knowledgable man. Read any of the other reviews and you'll know what you're in for. Like my wineglass during much of my trip, my head was filled to the brim with knowledge after spending a day with him.

What I really want to share is a story about Guido's character and heart for his customers:

Early on in the tour, our group stopped in San Giminango for a couple hours to explore. At some point during the stop, my sister misplaced her phone somewhere in the city. After discovering this an hour later, she was heartbroken. Guido offered to drive back and search for the phone, but none of us were optimistic about our chances of finding it. So we forged on to our scheduled winery tour. Guido dropped us off for our tour and tasting and upon pickup, he offered my sister 2 of his favorite wines as comfort for her lost phone. He wanted to ensure that her trip wasn't a complete loss and genuinely cared that she had a great time.

Go with Guido.

We arrived via cruise ship (at the port in Livorno) in June and arranged a day with Guido for my husband and I to do a wine tasting experience in Tuscany. He was very prompt and thorough in all of our email communications and his English was fantastic! We had been to the area before and wanted to experience the Tuscan wine country this time - no big tour bus from the cruise line and no tourist attraction stops. Guido was a perfect fit for us. He emailed different itinerary 'options' for our day together and, ultimately, we trusted his knowledge and expertise and had him arrange the day for us...we did 2 wine tasting visits and stopped for a lovely lunch in the Tuscan countryside. Our first wine tasting was at the University of Florence's Villa Montepaldi (their wine-making/teaching location in the Chianti Classico area). Guido was our personal tour guide & sommelier there, showing us their operations and then sitting us down for a 6 wine-flight personalized tasting in one of their conference rooms. The tasting itself was about an hour and Guido created an experience that was fun, informative and we learned so much from him about wine, grapes, the art of how to taste properly and how to truly understand all the different Italian wines. It wasn't stuffy or school-like at all. It was simply amazing! After a stop for lunch, we drove to the Chianti area and tasted at Pietro Beconcini - this was a small family one-room winery, very personalized again (no tourists here!), we tasted 6 very good wines. Our day altogether was 8 hours and it was truly one the highlight's of our cruise vacation in the region. We highly recommend Guido without any reservation. You'll be so glad you did!

Recently we 5 60ish women went on a wine tour in Tuscany with Guido; it was one of the highlights of our trip! He showed us HIS Tuscany, including his town, his favorite winery, and a wonderful restaurant where he had pre-ordered the meal for us to ensure an authentic Tuscan experience. Guido was very knowledgeable about the wines we were tasting (after all, he is a master sommelier!) but was also re-assuring to some of the "novice" wine tasters that they might taste something different in the wine; that just because he thought it was a good wine, doesn;t mean we would like it. It is all individual, but he gave us the tools to better appreciate what we were tasting. What a treat to spend a day with someone so passionate about his home and his interests.
