“One of the Best Days in Italy!”
Reviewed 26 May 2014

We had an amazing day traveling around Tuscany with Alessandro. It was myself, my husband and one other couple. Ale picked us up at our hotel at 8:30 am and took us to Piazza Michelangelo then to the WWII memorial to start the trip. We visited San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Siena, Greve as well as three wineries. Ale is very personable and makes the day enjoyable. I would recommend him to anyone and would definitely hire him again for our next trip to Italy!

“Excellent service”
Reviewed 25 May 2014

We took Alessandro's tour on 5/21/2014. His customer service skills are amazing. He was very polite and considerate. He adapts the tour to your interest and if you decide to go to the wineries there is no pressure at all to buy. Tell him to take you to Fattoria Montigliari for lunch and wine tasting, it is an absolute delight.

“Believe the rave reviews!”
Reviewed 23 May 2014

The many five-star reviews on Tripadvisor persuaded my husband and me to contact Alessandro (Ale) to arrange a day trip from Florence to Siena, San Gimignano, and the Chianti wine countryside. We quickly realized that the many glowing reports by happy tourists regarding Ale's services are right on the mark. If you seek justification for hiring this wonderful driver and very knowledgeable (but unofficial) guide, please read the May 16th review below.

Our day trip sped by all too quickly, leaving us with great memories of Tuscany and our remarkable, very interesting conversations with Ale, who we came to consider a friend. His goal is to ensure his clients appreciate and enjoy his country, and he does everything possible to see that the day exceeds their expectations. As these reviews all indicate, he is very, very good at his job! This was the most delightful day of our three-weeks in Italy--thanks to Ale, who worked hard all day to introduce an area he loves to us.

“A great day touring with Ale”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

My friend and I spent a very enjoyable day on May 1st with Ale starting at 8:30am from our hotel in Florence (he helped with luggage), visiting Siena, San Gimingano, Castellina, Greve, Monteriggioni, a stop at a winery where we had a wine tasting...and the most delicious lunch, quick stop in Pisa....finally ending at 5:30pm at our hotel ( helped with the luggage again) in Lucca for our week long cooking class in Tuscany. I found Ale on Trip Advisor and contacted him by email. He was very responsive, described the day trip, and we booked with him. Throughout the day, he gave us a lot of historical info about the towns we were going to. He always let us know where to meet, and we didn't feel rushed at all. I can say without any qualifications that our day with Ale was worth every cent. You will not be disappointed. We still think that it was one of the best days of our two week vacation in a Tuscany.

“Everything He Was Supposed To Be”
Reviewed 22 May 2014

The positive reviews had it right. He was a great driver, informative, concerned with you having a good time, punctual, no pressure to get you home. and funny. As an added bonus, he knows the people at the winery very well and we were treated to a great lunch at a private table overlooking the valley. Also, don't pass up the Cinque Terre trip as it was fantastic.
