“Massimo is a wonderful guide!”
Reviewed 20 April 2014

We booked a tour with Massimo to go from Florence back to our home base in Rome, via Tuscany and Siena. Although we had terribly rainy cold weather, Massimo made it so much fun for us. He took us to a wonderful little winery, a medieval village, a tiny town called Greve in Chianti and more. He was so knowledgable and, more importantly, was very kind and sweet withour family. We recommend him unconditionally to anyone who wants an intimate look at Tuscany - he is the real deal! Book Massimo and you will be so glad that you did!

“Private tour of Italy”
Reviewed 18 April 2014

My family and I just completed a 2 week trip covering the highlights of Italy. Rome, Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast, Florence and Tuscany, Venice, Verona and Milan. The trip could not have been better and we couldn't have done it without all the help we received from Max at Tuscany in Tour/PrivateToursofItaly.com. Max arranged all our hotels which were all top notch. We had great drivers Danielle in the South and Massimo up North. They were kind, prompt, helpful and responsive and adaptable to all our needs. Max helped me put together an itinerary for our entire stay. Making suggestions and offering alternatives to get the most out of our time. We had it all put together but then we made some changes while we were there and these were made without any problems. Massimo made sure we always had what we needed. Everyone was doing all they could to make our vacation grand. We had guides everyday and each of them were super. Very informative and really helped us learn about all we were seeing. I would highly recommend using their services!!!

“The only way to see Tuscany”
Reviewed 18 February 2014

This was the second time we were using Massimo's services. He is always punctual and his English is near perfect.

His cars are always spotless and luxurious. Massimo knows Tuscany like no other. If you want to pack in a day, what you normally need 3 days for, then Massimo is your answer. Ask him about restaurants and nightclubs, hotels and shops, and u have all the info you need.

Money well spent. Doing Florence without Massimo is like going to Pisa and not visiting the tower.....

“This tour was a highlight of our trip......”
Reviewed 25 January 2014

Livorino was our first stop, what a great day. Massimo was our tour guide for the day, picked us up at the cruise ship and was right there waiting when we got off. His tour vehicle was a Mercedes V class minivan, very comfortable with plenty of room for the five of us. Massimo was very warm and friendly, that set the tone for the day. He gave us a ton of information, very informative without being boring. Pisa was pretty amazing, not just the tower but the whole area was rich with architecture and history. Massimo gave us all the time we wanted and even assisted in taking family pictures. Next, he took us to Florence, stopping high on a hill just outside the city. Wow... Tthe view from there covered a large part of the city. The old city walls and the river before us, so much to see that I hardly have words. Massimo then took us into the oldest part of the city. The Florence Cathedral, Piazza Della Signoria, Piazza Del Duomo, too many amazing places to name here. He recommended a place to have lunch that was most excellent, I'll review that later. Massimo told us to avoid having gelato in town, he had a really good place in mind when we were ready to head back.... again amazing. When he dropped us off back at the trip, it was agreed by all that Massimo had set the bar really high for all the other tours to come!!! Great job Massimo.

“Wonderful Tuscany and Pisa day trips!!!”
Reviewed 17 January 2014

We enjoyed 2 separate tours with Massimo, through the Chianti region and to Pisa and Lucca. Both were excellent and our family enjoyed them very much. Massimo is a wonderful guide (and a careful driver!!), friendly, open, personable and knowledgeable about the areas we visited, and in addition to the insights he provided during our visits, he had great suggestions for other things to do outside of our tours. He was right on time to pick us up at the front door of our apartment in Florence ... it was a pleasure spending the day with him, from start to finish.
