Leonardo was present and easy to find when we got off ship. He was very knowledgeable and we thoroughly enjoyed the tour. We compared notes with friends who took tour arranged by ship and we feel our tour was definitely superior.

Our tour yesterday with Leonardo will likely be the highlight of our entire trip. He met us at the port, and we drove to Pisa, where he showed us that the beautiful city is more than just the tower. Then we drove to Lucca, and he guided us through that lovely old city. Then we had a beautiful drive through the countryside to the Fattoria del Teso, for a fabulous wine tour and lunch with wine tasting. I have walking difficulty and he was so kind and considerate throughout the tour. Thank you Leonardo.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Betty, Thank you very much for your good review, I did my best to oblige and I am glad that you are happy with my service. You are right, the Fattoria del Teso is one of the best winery in the area and you had a nice experience there, I was sure of that. Please give my regards to your husband and your friends, I hope to take you on tour again if you happen to came back here in Tuscany! Sincerely Leonardo

Leonardo met us at the ship and we set out on our tour. His MB van was comfortable and equipped with a small PA system which made his narration and answers very easy to hear. We made Pisa in good time and saw many wonderful sights. Driving on to Florence we passed the time in conversation, and arriving, set out to see the things we recalled from prior visits. Leonardo was a perfect host: patient, friendly, accommodating and skilled in the history and culture of Tuscany. We heartily recommend him!!!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Tim, Thank you very much for your review, I am happy you were satisfied with the tour, I also remember a very nice day spent with you and your wife, please give my Regards to her. I hope to see you again in the future! Sincerely Leonardo

Leo was over the top. I can't even begin to share how special our day was with him. He is very knowledgeable and made sure he tailored our trip to enjoy all the highlights. He even picked out a incredible restaurant for us with a view that was spectacular. In addition...he knew where to get the best gelato. He saved us so much time and made sure we got to see everything that was special to us. Thank you Leo!!!!

Leonardo provide a really nice tour. The highlight was Lucca. I nice gentle tour of an old city. The young one in our group of eight went up a tower in the middle of the city. We had a nice lunch in the city and a great day. I enjoyed that he kept us off the highways for most of the trip and we saw the countryside. Took us by a beautiful villa on the way back to the ship.

A wonderful day, including some extraordinary effort by Leonardo to help us retrieve luggage at the Pisa airport that had been missing for 6 days! He enabled close access to the tower in Pisa to minimize walking requirements, and arranged a great time in Lucca including a fantastic lunch. Highly recommended!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Vincent, I am very happy that you enjoyed the tour and finally you were able to collect your luggage at Pisa airport, it was difficult but we manage to get it!

My wife and I just completed 2 sensational days with Leonardo around Livorno. He maintained a highly positive attitude and a genuine desire to ensure that our time met and exceeded our expectations as first-time travelers to the region. The vehicle was clean and comfortable, and Leonardo went out of his way to accommodate some mobility limitations of my wife due to recent knee surgery. He even helped us retrieve lost luggage where others had failed! We highly recommend him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Vincent, Thank you for your nice review it is highly appreciated. I am happy that I was helpful in the positive outcome with your luggage trouble. I hope to take you on tour on your next trip here in Tuscany! Please give my Regards to your wife as well Sincerely Leonardo

Leonardo was terrific. Was there to greet us as we got off our ship, and showed us the sights of Florence. He was very flexible recognizing that we had a number of things we wanted to do which groups guided by him did not ordinarily do (since one of our small group had spent 6 months in Florence). The drive from the port of La Spezia to Florence and back was long-- but he was great pointing out various landmarks on the way to Florence and letting us all sleep on the way back to La Spezia!! Bravo!!

Leonardo met us at our cruise ship and was there waiting on us when we departed. He took a group of 6 of us to Cinque Terre and we visited 2 of the 5 villages. He also took us to Pisa and 2 other cities. It was a long day but we enjoyed it very much and feel we really got an excellent tour. I would highly recommend him to any tourists visiting Livorno on a cruise ship.

Leonardo was an excellent guide/driver! I wasn't aware that meet up from La Spezia port isn't as easy as from Livorno, but Leonardo was able to get us to Pisa just in time to not miss our tower climb slot. After admiring the amazing views from Piazzale Michelangelo, he accompanied us for a walking tour of Florence to ensure we saw all the important sites, with significant historical points added. In the midst, he brought us to Mercato Centrale for lunch, which was perfect! Thank you Leonardo!!

Leonardo was Awesome! We loved this tour (5 people including 88 year old mom). He was kind, courteous, knowledgeable with a great passion for his country. His mini-van bluetooth speaker made it sooo easy for mom to hear. We started with a drive to Pisa. Much more interesting than just the leaning tower. We then went to a small winery for a tour and snacks - and Wine of course! Then we drove to Lucca and back to Livorno. We loved every bit of this tour and would recommend Leonardo to ANYONE!

We were a party of six. Our tour was with Leonardo to San Gimigano & Siena. It was absolutely perfect. If we had to rate it on a scale of 1-10 it would be a 12. We were able to stop at other out of the way places that were amazing. Leonardo was very informative & very nice. He definitely is a major part of our rating. I & the rest of my party will not hesitate to use ToursByLocals again or hesitate in recommending them to our friends. Thank you Leonardo for making that part of our trip the most memorable!

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.

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!
