Our travel agent recommended tours by locals and at first I was a little leary. It turned out to be a great experience. Roberto was wonderful, my sister, daughter and myself were thrilled to have him as our guide for the day. He was very personable and knowledgable about the area. We would highly recommend his tour, it was a great way to see so much of Italy in one day. Thank you so much.

I found Roberto for a trip I planned for my parents and their friends. Here is what one of them had to say about him: "Roberto couldn't have been a better guide. He showed us his Italy....places we would never have seen nor did we know about. Roberto was an amazing guide. He was personable, interesting, knowledgeable, and just great to be with! His rating would be 5 stars (if that is the best)!!! There were four people in our group and we all loved Roberto!"

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Blaire. It has been my GREAT pleasure to take care of your parents. Very sweet and special persons. A BIG hug to them and I hope to see all of you soon, here in Italy. Ciao!! Roberto

Roberto was the perfect private guide during our full day Tuscan wine tour! The countryside scenery was truly amazing, visiting several excellent wineries/wine tastings, he shared wonderful insights, details and history on the countryside as a lifelong resident. He took us to an incredible lunch spot along the route which we LOVED!!! Can't say enough about our day with Roberto. He's a true gentleman, fun, funny and simply great to spend a day with in Tuscany...A delightful day with a really great guy!

Tour: #280753, Day trip to San Gimignano and Chianti Classico from FLORENCE, Florence, Tuscany, Italy    view tour
Date: Mar 29/18

Roberto was an engaging and knowledgeable guide, but the tour is primarily a wine buying tour. The pressure to buy is high, especially at the second winery. Roberto does take you along some pleasant back roads, and lunch at the agritourisma was very good. The Tuscan scenery is beautiful , of course. The time in San Gimignano was very limited. If you want to taste and buy wine, this trip will work for you.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I'm happy to know that you enjoyed my guiding and driving service as well as the panoramic back roads, by the way I'm so sad that you felt under pressure along the wine tastings, since they are 2 sweet, family-run, boutique wineries and they both offered you a FREE wine tastings Since you've booked a private wine tour, I offered a wine experience matched with a stop to San Gimignano While not interested in wine we could have modified the itinerary at your convenience I will try to be clearer in the future

We cannot say enough how much we enjoyed our day in the Tuscan countryside with Roberto! His knowledge of the history of area along with the obvious love and pride he feels for his home made for an incredibly memorable experience. He was a complete delight to spend the day with and made an already lovely trip all the better. It was a day very well spent.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: What a great review!!!! Thanks a lot Amy, it has been my GREAT pleasure, spending a day with great people like you are!!! I'm wishing all the best and of course I hope to see you soon. Ciao!!! Roberto

The inclement weather was more than offset by our delightful and accommodating guide. Roberto's deep knowledge of the areas we visited combined with his passionate communication made for a very enriching experience. He was also a wonderful safe driver. We would highly recommend Roberto to all travelers seeking a unique tour of Tuscany.

Roberto is the greatest! He customized a fantastic day tour of Tuscany wine and olive growers for us in the Chianti Classico region. It was a spectacular day! As we grow and produce wine and olive oil, our expectations were quite high. Roberto met them on all accounts. Molte grazie!! Next trip (with Roberto!) two days into the Montalcino-Montepulciano region!

Roberto gave our group a first rate tour. He took us places we would never have seen on our own and managed the available time very well. The restaurant he arranged for our lunch was very good as was the wine tasting. He clearly knows his stuff and pointed out very unique photo ops. His English was very good and his manner very friendly. He accomodated our travel requirements very easily.

Not a very interesting tour. Lucca was a total waste of time. Most disappointing was the guide was not licensed so in essence he was a driver dropping us off and we were left on our own. Kind of disappointing especially in Florence!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard, I'm so sorry to know about your dissatisfaction. Many tourists consider Lucca to be one of the most charming towns of Tuscany, nice for walking, for cycling. It is the town of Giacomo Puccini. The mediaeval town it is surrounded by ancient walls. Visited on 2016 by 500.000 tourist. I'm actually a fully licensed and insured driver/guide.

This was our 2nd tour with Roberto so we were familiar with each other and continued with our cultural experience. He continually engaged with us and we developed a great knowledge and appreciation of the region. Orvieto,and Civita di Bagnoregio were fascinating. The cities were unique and we loved walking around the roads and small pathways. We visited some beautiful basilicas and small quaint churches with neighborhood feeling. We experienced great art, and scenery. We highly recommend this tour.

Roberto was knowledgeable and very efficient. He shared with us the history of the region both present day and ancient. He took us to unique points of interest. His time was our time. He didn't rush us and allowed us as much time as we needed it. He was very friendly and was happy that we were interested in the history and culture of this region. He picked us up and dropped us off as originally requested.

The 4 of us enjoyed our tour with Roberto. Fantastic private winery tour and tasting (7 wines) at Querciabella. A beautiful lunch at Osteria Alla Piazza, then San Gimignana, which included gelato at Gelateria Dondoli-world champion gelato. Ending with a visit to Monteriggioni. Roberto is very knowledgeable of Italy, Siena, architecture, Italian wine & food, restaurants and more. His explanation of the Palio was great: the tradition, contradas, emotions, including a video. Very flexible and good humored.

Roberto was EXCEPTIONAL!!! When we arrived at our port to check into our cruise, we were told due to bad weather we will no longer port at Livorno, instead they decided to port at La Spezia. Roberto, instead on cancelling on us (because we no longer docked at Livorno) he drove an extra 2 hours to meet us at the new port, from there his knowledge of all the sites we visited were impressive. His English was perfect and his timing was impeccable. I will book with Roberto again!!
