Tours in Tuscany
I worked with Marco to plan transportation and guided day trips during my trip to Italy in July 2014. We were a family of 6 - my husband and I and our four adult children. Marco was VERY helpful during the planning process. He returned phone calls and emails promptly, speaks English perfectly, and was happy to accommodate all of our requests. He was very knowledgable about the area and suggested great itineraries for our day trips. He never tried to sell us anything we didn't need. For example, for the smaller Tuscan hill towns (e.g. Pienza, Montalcino) he assured us that our driver was knowledgeable enough to show us around and did not suggest that we pay for a private tour guide. In the bigger towns (Siena and Lucca) Marco arranged for private tours with GREAT guides. He arranged two private tours of Tuscan wineries, one with a private lunch.
We ended up scheduling 5 days of events with Tours in Tuscany. Our WONDERFUL driver for the week was Francesco. He drove us in a very spacious and comfortable Mercedes van. He picked us up at the airport at the airport in Rome and drove us to our hotel in Florence with a short stop for lunch in Orvieto. He also drove us on 4 day trips - to Pisa and Lucca near Florence, and to wineries and towns in Tuscany. Francesco became like part of the family!! He was flexible when we decided to change some plans, was very knowledgeable and answered all of our questions, and was a pleasure to spend the day with.
As a side note, I compared the price of my itinerary with another tour company's, and Marco's rates were more reasonable.
I love exploring Europe, and have used private tour guides in several countries. Tours in Tuscany is among the best I've used. I highly recommend them!
