Alessandro was top rate in every way. He was knowledgeable, flexible, friendly and a pleasure to spend a day with. He was in contact before our trip and kept the line of communication open. He is a native of Florence and his lifetime of exposure to the area was evident at every turn. In addition to knowing a lot, he showed a genuine enthusiasm for his work and for his native territory. You could not choose a better person to guide you around this beautiful part of the world.

Tour was planned and time was sufficient for cowering Pisa, Sangimignano with wine tasting and Siena tour, Driver was good and tour guide was efficient in explanation and guiding the best possible key locations across all 3 cities
