My adult daughter and I spent a day touring Tuscany with Stefano. We went to Monteriggioni, Siena, wine tasting and San Gimignano. We had a fun day and really enjoyed Stefano. At my last minute request he arranged for a Private tour of Siena. We found this to be very helpful and informative. We also had a fantastic lunch and wine tasting experience at a local winery. Stefano recommended an amazing gelato place in San Gimignano ... delicious.

I corresponded with Franco and Stefano prior to our trip and they were very responsive and helpful. I think it is important to do this so that they can accommodate your interests. I would highly recommend Tuscan Sunshine Tours.

I understand Stefano and his wife do cooking classes and wine tasting. I plan to do this next time.

We also spent a day with Pascuale in Lucca, Cinque Terre and Pisa. Pascuale took us to a local cafe in the morning for coffee and local pastries that were unbelievably delicious. He was very knowledgeable of Lucca and shared a lot of history on our drive.

Franco was our guide for the day and it was a wonderful experience. He picked us up at our hotel in Florence, arriving 10 minutes early. Drive to Sienna was pleasant and Franco was quite knowledgable about the area, easy to talk to, and seems to enjoy showing his country to visitors. Then a stop at Casa Emma for lunch and wine tasting. It was a wonderful time, excellent food and wine in a beautiful Tuscan scene. Buying wine to ship home was welcome, of course, but we didn't feel pressured at all. Then some time in San Gimignano. We took our time with lunch, so Franco recommended we make up the time in S.G. - good recommendation as he had gotten to know us and knew that we would be the least interested in the area most packed with other tourists. We would definitely use this company, and Franco, again in the future.

My wife and I spent two weeks in Tuscany, Italy in Sept 2017 and we were glad that Tuscan Sunshine Tours provided excellent driving and tour services during our vacation! Our holiday started with a gourmet dinner with Stefano and his wife Simonetta at their house nearby Florence which was really wonderful and the delicious taste was still in our memories!

The transfers from one destination to another during the whole trip were smooth and comfortable so that our suitcases were able to transfer with no pain when changing accommodations. The company also planned several spots for our enjoyment while long driving distance was involved, which greatly enhanced our travel experience!

Stefano was experienced and knowledgeable so that we were able to understand the italian culture and highlights of many tourist spots. The staff for planning the itinerary, Barbara was responsive and well-organized and the assigned driver, Pasquale was funny and easy to communicate. Our trip was full of fun, memories and best experiences with the good service provided by the company.

Thanks again Stefano, Barbara and Pasquale for giving us a memorable vacation in Tuscany and we hope we can have your service again in future! Grazie!

We booked a transfer tour from Rome to Florence. Stefano and Franco were very quick to reply to emails and help organize the day beforehand. We decided on a stop in Siena and lunch at a winery in Chianti. Franco picked us up promptly at 930 at our apartment in Rome. He pointed out interesting sites as we drove up to Siena, but also let us alone as we dozed on and off. In Siena, he dropped as off right in front of the famous Duomo and gave us directions on how to get to the Piazza del Campo. He then whisked us off to Tenuta Casanova, a small farm/winery in Chianti. We had the BEST lunch here. Four courses, all paired with their wine and balsamic vinegar. We ended up buying a case to have shipped home :-) He then dropped us off in front of our apt in Florence, exactly at 530P. I will definitely use Tuscan Sunshine Tours when returning to Florence.

We had booked 3 day trips from Florence with Tuscan sunshine tours. We had Franco take us on a day tour of Lucca & Pisa on day 1. He was very helpful throughout the trip and gave us a lot of information on the history of the region. We had Stefano take us on tours of Cinque Terre and Siena/San Gimignano. Stefano is very pleasant and was fun to be with! His recommendation for lunch at Ciak in Monterroso was amazing!
