WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US

We booked the Private tour by luxury car and visited San Gimignano, Sienna and then went to a small vineyard for a private tour, tasting menu lunch and then back to Florence. Andrea was our driver and he was amazing. He really made the tour special with his wonderful personality, information about what we were seeing, where to go, and punctuality. This is the only way to see the Tuscany countryside. The weather was gorgeous and the vineyard was amazing. The food was delicious and we ordered a case of wine to be shipped back to America. My husband and I went on our honeymoon but it would be great for a couples group as well.

Siena is a city rich in art and history, with many treasures to be found both in its museums and on its streets. Piazza del Campo is one of the most famous and beautiful squares in Italy, and every year it plays host to the Palio delle Contrade, a spectacular horse race that is not to be missed.

Many locals buy their wines from the winery we are going to visit because of its delicious flavors. You will have the opportunity to sample some of their best wines while enjoying a breathtaking view of the Tuscan countryside. Tuscan wines are not only of excellent quality, but the experience of visiting the cellars, vineyards, and production facilities is an education in and of itself. You will learn how to tell the quality of a wine, as well as secrets for choosing the right wine to enhance your meal.

With its miles of Chianti Classico vineyards and renowned butchers, Greve offers a feast for the senses. Every turn in the road reveals a new breathtaking vista, making it the perfect place to snap some photos.

Fabio our driver was excellent and the tour included a visit to San Gimignano and Siena which are both beautiful medieval towns.

by mortondeirdre59

This was a great way to see 3 charming towns/cities outside of Florence. Luca, our driver, was very helpful and an excellent driver. We way preferred being in a comfortable van that can drive right into the cities, rather than a giant tour bus or renting a car. Luca recommended an excellent place for us to eat lunch in Siena. And ending the day with the wine tour was just brilliant. We loved every minute of it and highly recommend this company and tour. They were very professional and communication was outstanding.

by FiveHawaiiLovers

A wonderful way to see San Gimignano, Siena and a wine tasting all in one afternoon. Our driver Fabio was excellent !!! Beautiful views from a comfortable Mercedes. This company is very well run and easy to navigate the informative website.

by Orchidsal

We had such a great day with Leonardo! He took us to a spot overlooking Florence and we got such wonderful photos of the city. On to Tuscany. SAN Gimignano and the very best gelato. It rained on us in Siena, but still a terrific town to see. Had lunch there. Finished the day at a winery whose name I cannot remember. Such a great day! I would highly recommend I Just Drive (Now Truescany)
