Date: Feb 9/20

Rossella S. was a fabulous and very knowledgeable an tour guide for our day long visit to Siena! We were a group of 4 senior adults and asked many questions along the way which she answered completely - sometimes with humor! Her knowledge of the many works of art and the history of the area was amazing. In the large museums and palaces, she knew which works to emphasize as we did not have time to see it all. Rossella even knew where to buy the best gelato! Would highly recommend Ms. Scoara

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Peggy and Randy, it was my pleasure meeting and showing you part of the region I call home. I hope to meet you again soon... there is so much more to see. I wish you all the best. Rossella

5 stars! 5 stars! 5 stars! WE cannot say enough good things about Rossella & the tour. We (2 adults, 2 teens) traveled New Year's week. Prior to the trip, Rossella was terrific with communication via email & planning. She met us perfectly on time with a very nice, spacious Mercedes van. She talked about history, culture, geography and current events. We were truly impressed by her knowledge. The sites and stops were amazing. Enjoyed the wine and olive oil tasting as well. Thanks, Rossella!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much for your nice words. It was great to start the year with you, and I hope to meet you again soon. Have a great year, and lots of love to all of you.

We visited in October of 2019. I cannot say enough good things about our guide Rossella. She provided a wonderful itinerary which included everything we hoped to see in Florence, Pisa, and more. Her knowledge of the culture and history were superior. Her guidance made every site come to life. The conversation was both interesting and engaging. We could have hoped for no more from our day in Florence.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Raimie and Bryan, Thanks for your beautiful words. I hope that we will meet again in the future, in the meantime all my best wishes for your life.

We were a party of four who were on a cruise which docked in Livorno for a day, Rosella is full of knowledge and very entertaining. If you take this tour be aware that Florence is 90mins away so is a fairly long trek and the roads are busy - it's worth it in the end as Florence is a gem.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Barrie, thanks for your nice words. It was a pleasure meeting you, and I hope to meet you again. Take care. All the best Rossella

Rossella is a five star guide that makes the day zoom by. She is very knowledgeable about the towns we visited and made them come alive with her narrative! Besides being extremely personable and witty, she can share personal experiences of living and working In Tuscany which is most interesting. Her Mercedes was immaculate and she is a great driver. Look no further for not just a driver but a lovely woman who loves Tuscany and will make your journey memorable!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My dear Soda I enjoyed very much meeting you and both Wanda and Dan. I will always remember you but I hope you will come back to visit me. All the best Rossella

We really enjoyed our day with Rossella touring the Cinque Terra and Pisa. We were a group of six and her van fit all of us comfortably. The weather on our day was not the best and Rossella was keeping us one step ahead of the rain all day by rearranging the order of things. We were very grateful for this. We had two in our group who had some difficulties walking, and she took this into consideration and got us as close in as possible. We were very happy to have had her as our tour guide!

Rossella was fantastic! Her knowledge of Pisa & Florence is second to none. She pointed out facts about the various artworks that only come with years of experience & study. The big plus by going with her was we were able to skip the line to see the Statue of David. All in all, a great day out. Could not recommend highly enough.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks so much, Geoff for your nice words. Come to visit again, and in the meantime, take care. All the best.

Rossella provided a very informative and enjoyable tour of Pisa and Florence. She included our daughter (14) and son (12) in conversations and geared questions and discussions towards them to keep them engaged along the way. She showed us the beauty and highlights of both cities in the short time we had while in port.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Christina, and give my love to the rest of your family. I hope our paths will cross again, in the meantime, all the best. Rossella

Rossella was a delight since our first contact online. She went above and beyond to learn about our group, plan our itinerary, and modify plans on the spot as she learned more of what we were looking to see and do. She knows Tuscany in and out, provides historic insights with connection to current times, and is a great storyteller - not to mention her great driving skills and vehicle. We could not ask for a more wonderful guide in Tuscany! GRAZIE MILLE!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Pilar it was a great pleasure meeting you and be part of your new interest in Tuscany. I can’t wait to meet you again. All the best. Rossella

Rossella rocked it! We are a family ranging from teenagers to grandparents and everyone had a fantastic time and the things we saw were amazing. We climbed the tower of Pisa, we rode bikes on the fortifying walls of Lucca. With Rossella we took in churches and museums that even kept the teen engage. Plus we had a relaxing meal in Lucca surrounded by buildings that were built on the old Roman arena and the oval shape was still present. It was amazing. Rossella created the perfect tour! Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Raffkind family! Thanks for your nice words. It was a pleasure meeting you and showing you my area. I truly hope to have you back. All the best Rossella

We really enjoyed our tour Pisa and Florence with Rossella. She is both a driver and guide which was great. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area including an alternate way to get back to the port when she heard that the freeway was really backed up. She was also flexible in what we could do/see due to my father being in a wheelchair (she also helped with the chair when needed to get over big humps). I would use her again should we return to the area. Thank you Rossella.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Beth! I was very happy to know you and your family. I wish you all the best, and I hope we will meet again one day. Say hallo to your parents.

Don't take her your. We spent all day trying to track her down wherever we went. She also almost made us miss our cruise ship

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Misti, I’m very sorry to read your review. My mistake was that I said 3,45 instead of 4,15, for which I apologized many times. I allowed to drive you to the Luxury Mall for your child sake, making me drive two extra hours for free. When I found out my mistake I fixed the situation praying the Prada Manager to let you go in front of your line to pay for purchases. We arrived at the ship well before the All on Board Call. I was with you the entire time except at the Mall, where you were alone.

This was our third day with Rossella and she was just as wonderful as the previous days. We learned so much as she custom planned each day for us. She went out of her way to make sure we were always happy. She bought us treats, adjusted the schedule to fit extra sites in and treated us like family. We all agree that the Rossella and her beautiful Mercedes van was by far the best way to go.

This was a wonderful day set up by Rossella for our group of six. She personally drove us in her very nice 8 passenger Mercedes van to both cities and a spectacular vineyard for lunch and wine tasting. Rossela was so delightful and easy to talk with. Our 17 yr old and 21 yr old kids loved her.

She could have been more active and social. Mostly now just a driver dropping us to places.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Tania, I'm sorry I wasn't more active and social. I though that you and your husband needed to rest, as you said, since you couldn't stand the heat wave that hit Florence on June 28th, and so I didn't disturb your sleep. I was ready to give you the full tour, when you asked me to go back to the port, again because you complained about the heat. I hope I will have another chance to show you that I'm not just a driver, maybe during fall or spring, here in Tuscany absolutely gorgeous. All the best.

Rosella was on time and on target with her itinerary. We were able to spend time at each of the venues I requested and her insights were presented in a personal and entertaining manner that kept our group of 7 - including 3 teenagers - enthralled. She was also able to use her network to avoid a freeway accident, skirting around the traffic jam to get us back to our ship in plenty of time. I highly recommend Rosella for your group touring needs.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you very much Gregory. I really enjoyed meeting you and your family. Have a great time, until we meet again. All the best Rossella
