We were scheduled to spend 2 days with Gianmaria but the weather intervened. Gianmaria was a great guide and was flexible in providing as much of the tours as possible. I would have not hesitation in recommending Gianmaria.
Gianmaria really tried to take us on the tour we had purchased but the weather prevented us from doing so. He was well informed and gave us a good overview of the area and its history. We did another tour with him and would recommend his services to anyone wanting to tour Tuscany

Gianmaria gave us a wonderful tour to two very beautiful places. He went out of his way to make sure all 6 in the group were able to see and do what they wanted as we al had different requirements. I would defenitely recommend this tour and Gianmaria.

We experienced an incredible day with Gianmaria. We visited two wineries that were both unique. The one in the morning was a smaller winery where we had a wonderful tour and tasting. We had a delicious lunch in a quaint cafe at our guides suggestion. He helped us order and get settled and then came back to pick us up. We toured a larger winery in the afternoon and again had a tasting. Our guide grew up close to the area and was able to give us lots of interesting information. Top notch guide/tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Nancy, thank you so much for your feedback! I am more than happy to hear that you enjoyed the day with me. I really hope to meet you again in the future for another adventure in Tuscany! Hugs from Italy, Gianmaria

Gianmaria is a awesome tour guide. We went to Pisa where my husband had to have "The Picture" but learned so much about the area. Then we were off thru the countryside of Tuscany to San Gimignano where we saw a beautiful historic village on one of the tallest mountains in the Tuscany Region. It was breathtaking. We had a outstanding lunch, wine and olive oil tasting at a family owned estate which was exceptional. Gianmaria is a fun loving and knowledgeable tour guide and I would recommend him to anyone.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Anita, thank you very much for your wonderful words.. I am very happy to hear you enjoyed the day with me :-) I really hope to meet you again in the future for another adventure in Tuscany! Hugs from Italy, Gianmaria

We had a wonderful time seeing Pisa and Lucca! Gianmaria was a gracious guide & gave us the personal touch. He picked us up at the scheduled time at the cruise terminal & dropped us off with time to spare so we weren't rushed to get back to the ship. We enjoyed Pisa, had lunch and enjoyed walking around Lucca soaking up the local flavor, then decided we wanted to go to a winery at the last minute. He was able to schedule a visit to a winery & olive oil factory for a tasting. The day was totally amazing!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Kathy! I really hope to meet you again in the future! Come back to Tuscany! Gianmaria

My 3 Daughters and I had such a fun time with Gianmaria. He was extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. He accommodated our need for photographs and knew the exact spots for us to stand to get the best shots. Gianmaria took us on the tour in his new van which was clean and very comfortable. As an extra added bonus- Gianmaria was handsome and personalble. I highly recommend this guide and his services.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Jeannette! I am very happy to hear your enjoyed and I hope to meet you all again soon! Grazie, Gianmaria
Brian KundertUnited States
Gianmaria is a fantastic tour guide. He has a very relaxed and friendly style which makes it easy to enjoy the day. He is full of information about the area. We had just enough time in Pisa and a really enjoyable visit to Lucca which was great. He even added on a winery visit at our request and he chose a really wonderful place. He ended up spending a bit of extra time with us, which we really appreciated. 5 stars and highly recommended!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Brian for your nice words, I am really happy to hear your enjoyed! Hope to meet you all again soon! Gianmaria
Lisa VogtUnited States
We had a wonderful day and tour with Gianmaria! He was an excellent driver, and made us feel completely comfortable even on some of the treacherous roads near Cinque Terre. He recommended we see Porto Venere and 2 specific villages, since someone in our group had difficulty getting around on rough terrain. We were so happy with his recommendation. Gianmaria was so friendly and fun. We highly recommend him and we hope to tour with him again soon!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Lisa! Always happy to hear nice words! Come back soon for another day in our beautiful country :-) Gianmaria

Mark von KaenelUnited States
Gianmaria was AMAZING!! We were a challenging group of 7. Gianmaria not only provided an incredible experience, he had great patience as well. We had everything from the Type A business executive to the ADD young adults and elderly grandparents. He did an awesome job of providing us with a wealth of information while keeping the tour moving along. We would highly recommend him to anyone and will be using him on any future trips!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your review! We had a great time! See you in the future :-) Gianmaria
Susana FarquharUnited States
What an amazing adventure we had with Gianmaria. Picked us up at our Port in a very comfortable van. Took us to Pisa first-it was pretty early so it seemed we had the place to ourselves for a little while. Gianmaria knew the history and information about the different places we visited throughout the day. Very informative and a great personality. Made a short unexpected but absolutely marvelous stop on the way to Florence. We took some great pictures then headed to Florence. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Susana! Thank you so much for your feedback! I really enjoyed the tour as well :-) Hope to meet you again n the future! Gianmaria
Katherine BeakesUnited States
Wonderful day!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with Gian! He took us to the best spots and parked close so we were able to walk around as much or as little as we wanted. We had all ages (from 6 to 70) and everyone really enjoyed it!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Katherine! Thank you very much for your feedback! I really hope to meet you again in the future :-)
Gianmaria was fantastic! He made our visit to Pisa & Florence one to remember. He's very knowledgeable and considerate. We have a photographer in the family and he stopped many times for her to capture some fantastic shots. He arranged lunch for us at a fabulous restaurant where he told the owner my parents were celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary and they brought out wine for us to enjoy on the house. Our day couldn't have been better. Thanks Gianmaria!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Paula! You family is fantastic and I enjoyed as well! I really hope to meet you all again in the future..for a day in Tuscany :-) Grazie, Gianmaria
Gianmaria was not only an excellent driver, (espesialy evident on the narrow winding roads of cinque Terre) but a most gracious, considerate, informative and experienced local guide for our family of six! We would defiantly recommend him to family, friends and strangers alike and should we have the opportunity to visit Livorno again we will look him up. Thank you Gianmaria! Grazie!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Ciao Deborah! You make me cry of happiness! Thank you very much for your words, and I really hope to meet you all again in the future ❤️��
Carl BoymelUnited States
Gianmaria was perfect in every way. He was waiting for us before the appointed time and was very accommodating to some of our group's challenges. He is professional and knowledgeable. Besides taking us to the "usual" sites, he reacted supportively to our specific interests and desires. We kept him busy with our curiosity and could not have had a better experience.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Carl for your nice words! I really hope to meet you all again in the future! Grazie Ciao Ciao, Gianmaria :-)
