My partner and two friends, one celebrating her 50th birthday, decided to use Tuscany Car Tours to visit Siena and San Gimi... with a visit to a great vineyard (Casa Emma) and lunch in the fortress of Monteriggioni... and WOW, what a day. I can't think of a more perfect way to experience this wonderful countryside in comfort, with a great (and inciteful) commentary from Paolo (our driver).
This is a small company, and they clearly take their business seriously. This is perfect example of why tripadvisor is so good - sharing excellent service with fellow travellers. Tuscany Car Tours were everything they promised to be, and more... and we all decided we would definitely use their services again, and recommend them heartily to our friends.
For the cost, it represented excellent value and so much better than being part of big organized tour... this way you have total flexibility and you have a great personable guide in Paolo. I greatly admire his knowledge and professionalism... as well he was a great (and safe) driver... this was an Italian road trip that didn't bring me stress and (more) grey hairs... so take my advice and treat yourself, you won't be disappointed, it's no accident this company has a near perfect record of 'excellent' recommendations on tripadvisor

Filippo picked us up at our B&B just outside Florence for a day-long tour of San Gimignano, Monteriggioni and Siena in May 2012. We also stopped at a winery in Chianti for a wine-tasting on the return. Filippo expertly planned our itinerary and avoided a lot of the crowds. He reserved a table for us for lunch in Monteriggioni at an open air terrace, and the meal was delicious! The history and knowledge of the Tuscan countryside was excellent, and Filippo showed us the best places. He expertly navigated the Florence rush-hour traffic near the end of the day, and gave us a wonderful tour of Tuscany. Highly recommended.

My husband and I used Tuscany Car Tours for 2 amazing days in May 2012.
Our first tour was to Cinque Terre with Paolo. We had a fantastic day even though it rained. Paolo's suggestions of which village to start at and using trains and the ferry were fantastic. His knowledge of the local areas we drove through was extensive. It felt like we were being shown around by a 'friend'. Thankyou Paolo

Filippo took us to Siena and San Giminano on our last day in Tuscany. We had an amazing day visiting all the sites with our 'friend'. Lunch at Montereggio was delightful.
Once at San Giminano, Filippo even directed me to a baby shop ( our first Grand-child is due in September) so we would have more memories to take home.

We finished the day at Casa Emma winery tasting beautiful Chianti on the terrace overlooking the vineyard. Filippo then dropped us at the airport for the long trek home but with a wonderful knowledge and view of beautiful Italy.

Our group of 4 had a fabulous experience with Tuscany Car Tours during our recent cruise on the NCL Epic that took us to the port of Livorno for the day. We desired to not only visit Pisa but also get a taste of both the city of Florence and the Tuscan countryside as well. Filippo set up a wonderful tour to meet our needs and Giacomo our tour guide brought it to life. From the history of the Leaning Tower of Pisa to the charm and european flavor of beautiful Florence to an amazing visit,wine tasting and 4 course lunch at a winery in the countryside we experience it all during our one day tour. We could not have asked for more and look forward to re visiting charming Florence in our future travels.
