I am a qualified private tour guide for Tuscany, official cheese taster and wine expert. I have been taking clients from all over the world around Siena and the surrounding areas of Tuscany including San Gimignano, Pienza, Montalcino, Montepulciano and Cortona since 2006. I conduct different types of tours including art tours, wine tours in the Brunello di Montalcino, Chianti and Vino Nobile wine districts: artisans tours, garden tours as well as private wine, olive oil and cheese tastings. I have access to many famous and boutique wineries throughout the region and I thoroughly enjoy the pleasure my guests have in learning about and tasting wines and cheeses. I customize my tours and offers arranging special events (Palio tickets, private luncheons and visits, cooking classes) for different type of clients (individuals, groups, family reunions, families with kids, honeymooners, seniors etc).
