Leonardo was knowledgeable, friendly, and kept us on track during a busy day. Having a headset and speaker in the car was a huge plus for our group of eight. He stayed in touch with us to make our tour fit the schedule of the places we visited.

Date: Sep 15/18

We wanted a cruise excursion from Livorno. I pressed 4 by mistake when it was a 5 star day.We loved our Tuscany day our guide Leonado was most considerate especially as we had disabled people in our party. He organised a wonderful visit to a winery in beautiful countryside and a light lunch there which was delicious. He helped with tickets for the tower in Pisa, and Lucca was a delight. Overall a wonderful day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Anthony, Thanks for your review, It is highly appreciated. I am happy that you and your family enjoyed the tour and the winery, I was sure because it is the best in the area. Please give my Regards to your wife and your daughters you were all very friendly!

Date: Sep 12/18

Leonardo was suburb, when he picked us up at the port then driving us out to Chianti winery in time for our tour at the winery. The winery that Leonardo selected to take us to was completely "AWESOME". the entire group of 8 of us was just blow away from the views we saw from this winery. Leonardo's knowledge of the area, sites, and the country was amazing, he was very informant and was able to answer any and all of our questions. We all would recommend him very highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Tom, It is a pleasure to hear from you! Yes, we set a new record from La Spezia to the winery, 2 hours sharp! I think it will resists for a long time! I am happy you enjoyed the tour and I hope to see you again in the future. Please give my Regards to all your party! Sincerely Leonardo

Pisa was amazing! Leonardo arranged for us to get tickets to climb the stairs to the top of the tower. We went in the morning, and the plaza was not busy. It was a wonderful moment in time. Florence, we saw David, the leather market, and many of the churches. And if that wasn't enough, made a stop at a winery in Tuscany. Leonardo arranged a very fruitful day.

The tour we booked with Leonardo for Florence and Pisa was fantastic. His van was very clean and comfortable, and he used a microphone that made it easy to hear him in the back of the van. Leonardo setup a nice itinerary, that allowed us to see all we wanted to see at a very comfortable pace. He was very easy to talk to and gave us some great incite into the history of Florence and Pisa. he also setup a very nice wine tasting and tour of a winery on the way back. Thanks Leonardo for a great time!

Knowledgable. Learned a lot about Pisa. Had a portable microphone so he could be heard by everyone in the van, including my hard-of-hearing father - this is something that none of our other tour guides did and was very much appreciated. He was flexible with his time, and we got to do and to see everything we wanted, including the villa tour at the end. He ate lunch with us as well (at our expense) - all of our other guides made a point of eating separately - don't remember agreeing to it but was OK.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Neil, Thanks for you review, I am glad that you enjoyed the tour and see anything you wanted. I did not intended to be intrusive joining you at lunch, but almost always I eat with clients as I reckon it would be strange to eat at a different table at the same restaurant. The restaurant owner knows me well and he never includes my lunch in the bill, as I told to your father. I hope to see you again in the future to go to one of the many other destinations here in Tuscany! Sincerely Leonardo

Leonardo was a fantastic guide. He was on time, extremely knowledgeable of the area and provided us a tour specifically designed for our needs. We wanted something different than Pisa and Florence and Leonardo suggested and provide stops at Bocelli's Theatre of Silence, Volterra ( quant village) and Sienna. While visiting some of the local sites in Sienna, Leonardo secured lunch reservations for us at a wonderful local restaurant. Would highly recommend him for tours throughout Livorno area

We enjoyed spending the day with Leonardo but felt he was a little tentative in adjusting the scheduled tour when it was clear almost none of the shops or restaurants were open, the trails between the first three towns were closed and the boat was closed for the season. Ended up going to Lucca rather than to Pisa so missed the Leaning Tower.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Robert, Thanks for your review; unfortunately we went at the villages off season and on a rainy day too, so we had not the best conditions to enjoy the place. When it was clear that you were not happy and your wife hint about Lucca I suggested to go. I was not sure if we would had time to spare to go to Pisa too, but on the way back from Lucca to the port I asked if you wanted to make a quick stop, but you decided to go straight to the ship. Please send my regards to your wife too Sincerely Leonar

Leonardo gave us a very personalized tour of some areas that he knew very well. He knew of our interest in art and opera and led us to some sights that we would certainly not have seen without a guide who had special knowledge. For example, I was interested in seeing Livorno neighborhoods both old and new because of the stories I used to hear from my aunt about living there when my uncle worked at Camp Darby. He also showed us a less obvious sights in Pisa, even Gallileo's home. A real joy!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Peggy, Thank you for your review; I am glad that you enjoyed the unusual customized tour I put together for you with many different areas. Livorno is a city with an history of its kind and you know that. I hope to see you all on your next trip to Italy. Please give my regards to your husband and the other lady ( sorry I do not remember the name of both). She was very happy when we found a pharmacy to buy cod liver oil! She gave me a good luck charm, very kind of her. Kind Regards Leonardo

I had booked this, not realizing Livorno is a completely different town than La Spezia, where our cruise with Royal Caribbean dropped us off. Leonardo reached out to us right away to let us know we'd have to amend the schedule a bit. Leonardo was very knowledgeable about the area and architecture, answered all of our questions

Leonardo was an excellent tour guide. He was very knowledgeable of the Florence region and took us to see all the sights we wanted to see. He spoke excellent English and was very informative to all of our passengers of the region of Tuscany. As a plus, he found an outstanding drive through Tuscany to a wine grove where we conducted a "renewal of Vows" that my 79 year old brother had placed #1 on his bucket list. Above all that, his price was reasonable and his vehicle was new and in excellant shape.

We had a wonderful time with Leonardo. We were met at the Cruise Port seamlessly and taken into Tuscany. We made a quick stop in Greve for a delicious cappuccino before heading to Castello di Verrazzano. This winery was spectacular. The tour was full of history and beautiful surroundings and the lunch was long and delicious. Leonardo then took us to Lucca. This walled city was amazing, so beautiful and it was the type of Italian city we were longing to see. Leonardo planned the day perfectly. Grazie!

We were a group of 8 and we were able to see much more than we thought possible. Leonardo was able to navigate the streets of Rome like no other! This tour involves a good deal of driving, so an internet connection would have been a plus, but we are still finding this rare. The next time we use Tours by Locals, we will only book if there is an internet connection on a tour that puts us in a van for more than an hour. Todays tourist, sadly, is still working!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Phillip, Thank you for your review. My van is fitted with a microphone system but unfortunately the day of your tour it didn't works. I have got it fixed now. You are right , wi-fi is necessary nowadays and I am fitting one in the van, so I hope if you would book anothers tour with me you will find both systems working properly!

A day on Vespas with Leonardo was the best decision. A true local, he is amazing at what he does making our day ours. He introduced us to places we would never have found as we buzzed around Tuscany. Sights included vineyards, villages, and the home of Andrea Bocelli. The trip back included the coast where we saw beaches and cliffs and a lunch overlooking the sea. A day on Vespa's with Leonardo was a hi-light. He is personable, knowledgeable and engaging. I fully recommend touring with him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Laurence, Thank you very much for your review, it will be very useful for others people willing to take a vespa tour with me.

Leonardo was an excellent guide and very knowledgable of the area of Tuscany and Cinque terra. We arrived on a cruise ship and he met us on time and with a Mercedes Van for 4 people. We spent over 8 hours with him and drove from the port to Conquer Terra with lots of commentary along the way. We learned a lot about the local economy, the area of Tuscany and Italy in general which is why we love to use tours by locals. So much better than a programmed cruise ship shore excursion! Would definitely use him

Our day with Leonardo was absolutely perfect. We were looking for a Tuscany experience and our day with him gave us some of the best views and most beautiful towns we could ever have hoped to see. Siena and San Gimignano were great but the addition of Volterra, the concert location near La Sterza and his end of day tour of the area around Livorno were really above and beyond. Our day was better than we ever expected. We ate a picnic lunch in the Siena square instead of a restaurant. Pure perfection!

Leonardo was very personable and professional. He's very well educated about the history of Florence and Pisa and speaks English well enough that he was easy to understand. We enjoyed going to a local cafeteria with him for lunch and the fact that he (like the other TBL guides) was willing to change our itinerary to meet the needs of our family (there were four of us in total). TBL is a great program and my only disappointment is that I didn't know about it YEARS EARLIER!

Leonardo went above and beyond showing us places we never even knew to ask to see in both Pisa and Florence. He gave us a general overview and then was honest in telling us what we could and could not fit into our day since we were on a cruise and had to get back to port. He kept us safe in Florence during dusk and accompanied me to the bank machine to help me out since my knowledge of Italian is minimal. I cannot commend or recommend him enough. He made a good vacation GREAT.

Tour: Pisa&Lucca cycling tour, Livorno, Tuscany, Italy
Date: Jun 18/14

While Leonardo was a very nice guy- the tour was not at all what I had expected. I thought that we would ride between Pisa and Lucca (on beautiful countryside roads) and tour the towns on foot. Just the opposite. We biked the towns(explored some on foot)and rode in the van between the towns. Not much to see there. The cites were very busy and it was hard to enjoy our ride as we were constantly dodging pedestrians, other bikers, children in strollers, etc. Honestly, it made me nervous! Disappointed~

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Carolyn, I am afraid the tour did not match you expectations. Both options are possible: to ride just Pisa and Lucca, or ride the way between as well. The ride between the two cities is 26 miles roundtrip ( quite a distance)on narrow roads without cycling lane and with some traffic too. You were with your children, very young, and it was not sensible at all to afford that ride. If you were only you and your husband I would have proposed the ride between. Kind Regards -Leonardo-

Leonardo was very knowledgeable and very nice. He quickly took us to all the places we wanted to see and made sure we got advanced tickets. He couldn't have been better. We would highly recommend him. We did not need a guide but only a car and driver since we had been there before. He was able to be exactly what we needed.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hi Billye, Thanks a lot for your kind words on me; I am glad you enjoy the tour and hope to see you and your party again in the future for another Tuscany's destination Kind regards Leonardo

Leonardo was a wonderful local guide, bringing our 3 generation group to the cities we wanted to see, Pisa and Lucca, and choosing a wonderful winery for our lunch and wine-tasting. He was prompt, attentive, responsive and very knowledgable about Tuscany, making our visit great. We had a delightful day and returned to the ship full of happy memories. We'd all recommend Leonardo highly.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mary, Thank you very much for your kind words; I am happy you enjoyed the tour, and hope to see you again on your next visit to Tuscany Kind Regards Leonardo
