We booked a last minute (literally the day before) day trip from Florence to Lucca through Niccoli Limousine Service. I wanted to take my 7-year old daughter biking on top of the walled city. Alex and Max were quick to respond and we arranged everything via email with no problem. The next morning, our fabulous driver, Franco, picked us up on time and we were off. As Alex & Max had made aware of our desire to go biking, Franco had already made arrangements with a local bike rental shop in Lucca, so they had everything ready for us when we arrived. He was very efficient in making sure my daughter and I were well settled on our bikes, gave us his cell number, and made sure we understood that if anything, ANYTHING, came up, we could call him and he would come and rescue us. Luckily, we have no tale of woe, rather we had the best afternoon biking around the vehicle-free wall, taking in the sights and smells of blooming jasmine, eating lunch at a small cafe and indulging in some creamy gelato. We met back up with Franco after 3 hours and returned the bikes. On the way back to Florence, we stopped at Pisa for some obligatory photos at the Leaning Tower and embarrassingly, more gelato. Franco speaks English very well and I think he also speaks German, in addition to his native Italian. Smoking in Europe is prevalent, so I'd like to point out that our late model Mercedes E-Class had no trace of anyone smoking in it, and if Franco smokes, our sensitive non-smoking noses weren't able to detect any evidence of it. This was the best private driver day trip we have taken...Max & Alex have a great team of drivers.
