Mike ), I was born in Pisa 35 years ago and was raised (and still live) in a town called Cecina, on the Tuscan Coast.
My father is the one who first introduced me to the tourism business, and I immediately thought it was the perfect job for me!! I used to work for a big italian tour operator, as a tour leader for groups of Italians traveling around the world, until I decided to start something on my own!
Thanks to my mother's help I was able to improve my language skills, and I started working as a professional tour guide - driver since 2010.
Sometimes clients ask me if I ever get tired of touring around with people in the same areas, but me answer is always the same one : NO!!!!
I love my country and never take for granted the fact that I am so lucky to live in this region: my goal is always to provide a personalized experience for the client , and make your day the best one of your vacation!
If you are planning to visit Italy , and specifically the area of Tuscany and the Cinque Terre, I am the right one to help you out!
I can pick you up from the port where your ship will be docking ( La Spezia, Portofino, Portovenere, Livorno) or from the hotel or villa where you will be staying at to take you on a great tour! The vehicles used to provide the services will be Mercedes or VW with all the modern comforts, wifi and water will always be available for you! Maximum capacity of each vehicle will be 7 or 8 passengers plus the driver.
Lots of information on the places you visit will be provided to you, and we will be able to access the historical restricted traffic area of the major cities with the vehicle, allowing you to see much more in shorter amount of time!
So don't look any further and feel free to contact me and to book your tour as soon as possible!
See you in Italy!
