Massimo was a fabulous tour guide. His local knowledge was fun and insightful. It was very convenient that he was able to set up entry to view the statue of David and skip the long line. We appreciated his tips for shopping and where to find a reasonable and excellent Italian lunch. We really appreciated his taste in music. We would definitely use Masimo for our future tours in Italy. Thank you

Massimo was personable, professional, accommodating, informative, and extremely knowledgeable. He balanced his interaction with us perfectly; never so much that we felt like we were on a guided tour but never so little that we felt abandoned. It was a real pleasure spending the day with him and I look forward to seeing him again on our next trip to Italy.

Wow! Just wow! Pisa and Florence with Massimo was our favorite day out of 10 cruise stops! Massimo is very personable and made sure we learned all we could about his beautiful country in such a short time. We had a party of 8 in a nice, large air conditioned van that easily accommodated a wheel chair. Massimo made sure that everyone of all ages felt welcomed and had fun! If we return we will definitely book this again!

Massimo was an excellent guide for our day. The van we travelled in was very modern, clean and comfortable. Whilst driving on Italian tollways can be a little scary for us non-Italians we felt very safe with Massimo's driving. He is very respectful to his client's needs and ensured we were very comfortable throughout the day. Although we decided to abandon our original destination to Cinque Terre due to bad weather Massimo devised an alternate program which we thoroughly enjoyed!

This was our first Tours by Locals experience and Massimo was fantastic. We were on a cruise and meeting him was easy and he was punctual. We got back to the ship with plenty of time. He was a lot of fun and very friendly. His van was very comfortable and clean. Our last trip to the area was a cruise excursion and although it was enjoyable Massimo went to great lengths to help us experience more of the non-commercial side. He scheduled lunch for us at a very nice winery. THANKS MASSIMO!

Massimo is an excellent tour guide and charismatic person. We enjoyed his company throughout our day. He quickly understood our interests and took us to sites that exceeded our expectations. We especially enjoyed the side trip to the WWII Memorial. It was also fun to spend time at a local winery for a delicious lunch, visit small towns, see the beautiful Tuscan landscape, and taste local specialities. He also gave us great tips for the rest of our trip. I would certainly book him again!

A very friendly and personable guide but he was more of a driver than an actual guide who accompanied us on the tours. He was informative on our journeys but never walked around sightseeing with us. Convenient to be dropped at our destinations but it would have been good to be escorted around the different locations and told more about the places.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: So sorry for your husband, hope he's feeling well now.

We wanted to wine taste and see a few towns on the way from Firenze and Roma so we decided to book a transit tour between the two cities. Massimo was prompt, professional, knowledgeable and charming. He was sensitive to the fact that all of us dozed off (the entire trip took 9 hours with all the stops) and drove in silence until someone awoke. His command of the English language was impressive as he knew American colloquialisms so we could speak normally. BRAVO. Book him. You will not be disappointed

Max was on time to meet us in Livorno and took us to Pisa and Florence. Max not a tour guide, but a driver. He takes you places and gives you basic information about it. In Florence we had 3.5 hours "free time" out of 8 hour tour. If that's what you are looking for - he will be perfect, however if you want to learn about the place, look somewhere else.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: We arrived to Florence at 11am, after the tour of Pisa - you have visited with me the Michelangelo's square, Santa Croce, Signoria square, Ponte Vecchio, which is exactly what I promise on my webpage. The "free time" on your own for relax & lunch was from 1pm to 3pm (2 hrs) so don't understand why you say 3.5 hours.

Massimo is the best, & his tour of the Chianti region was the highlight of our entire trip to Italy. He speaks perfect English and was very personable, making us feel at home. We are glad we trusted Massimo to know where to take us - he took side trips to show us unique places, stopping for us to take photos. The highlight of the tour was lunch in a private villa, at a quiet, private table, enjoying various wines and a delicious meal. It was an incredible tour, and we recommend Massimo highly!

Massimo met us right outside the La Spezia port security on time at 8:30 am. He was very friendly and spoken very good English. We have our 12 year old and 6 year old grandchildren with us and he was very good with them which was important to us. Massimo lives in Florence so he gave us a lot of interesting information about the culture of this part of Italy. We really enjoyed our tour with Massimo and would recommend him to anyone wanting a tour guide for Pisa and Florence.

There can't be a better way to see Tuscany in a day then in air conditioned comfort with a knowledgable funny tour guide. Massimo's insights were fantastic and food recommendations were awesome. I think we put on 2kg on that day and fell in love with Tuscan cheeses not to mention the Tuscan scenery. Great day out

He adapted the information flow perfectly: not too much, not too little, but just enough to make sure we could fully appreciate our experience. He is also very flexible: when we decided we wanted to squeeze in just one more winery, he made it happen in short order. Many thanks, Massimo! Ciao!

Simonetta and Kalinka provided a fun and entertaining cooking lesson of typical Tuscan foods, including an antipasto, two types of pasta that we made by scratch and a decadent easy dessert. We followed our cooking class with trip to town & wine, olive oil and balsamic vinegar tasting. Massimo was kind and knowledgeable. Would highly recommend!

Massimo was awesome! He had a sense of humor and had us laughing a lot. He drove us around with no worry whatsoever. He made sure we were having a great time and explained things along the way. I would recommend him definitely!!

Massimo was such an enthusiastic yet polite & thoughtful guide/driver. You could sense his love for Italy & desire to make you fall in love with his beautiful country. Full of knowledge as well, esp about the Tuscany/wine region.

This was an excellent tour and guide! He was very knowledgeable! I only wished we had more time to see more things! Coming in on a cruise ship and driving time made that harder! If we ever go back to Florence we will be using Massimo again!

Massimo was terrific. He was very knowledgeable and friendly and kept us all very interested throughout the long tour. Unfortunately, the drive from La Spezia to Florence is about two hours each way, but the conversation during the drive was lively and Massimo taught us much about Tuscany and made us understand why he loves it so much. Thanks Massimo for a fun day.

Massimo was prompt, accommodating, and friendly. We had a full day with a customized itinerary - he managed to include a couple of quick stops that were not on our list but well worth the time. Would definitely recommend this guide.

Massimo is a fantastic guide. If we could give him six or even seven stars, we would. He is everything you would want as a private tour guide. He helped us make the most of our limited time in Florence Italy and we are very grateful for that. Whatever you want to know and wherever you want to go, Massimo will make it happen.

Six of us took a wonderful all-day tour with Massimo to three hill cities near Florence (San Gimignano, Tremezzina, and Monteriggioni) and the Montagliari winery in Greve in Chianti. While taking nothing away from the spectacular hill cities (especially San Gimignano), my favorite was the winery. I spent some time talking to the winemaker, David Migliorini, interesting to me since I work in a winery. Massimo was a fantastic guide and companion. He's informed, witty, patient, and flexible.

Massimo is an excellent guide. He took us to Siena and gimignano in his very comfortable Mercedes van. He is an excellent driver and his English is very good. He explained the history of the areas and gave us time to wander on our own to explore the quaint shops and towns. He added a visit to the little town of Chianti which also was interesting. If you are interested in visiting Siena and San Gimignano from the cruise port, Massimo is your man.

Massimo provided us with a terrific experience in Tuscany. He is very knowledgable about the region's history and culture and was able to share his insight which gave the trip that much more significance. He was also accommodating to make the day easy and enjoyable by dropping us off and giving us time to explore on our own, yet also allowing us to visit quite a few sights. Massimo is the ideal tour guide.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Many thanks for the nice review, great pleasure to meet you!!!!

Exactly what we hoped for. A tour of some wonderful small towns in central Chianti with plenty of time to shp, browse, have a latte in. Tuscan towns. Massimo did not push us, totally responsive to our needs. Then he arranged 2 great wine tours and lunch. We all rated this a 10plus. It was like we went to wine school while enjoying the Tuscan hills , food and olive oil.
