We arranged 3 private tours for just the two of us while we were in Florence. We had Franco for 2 days and Pasquale for 1 day. Both were prompt in picking us up (even a few minutes early). Both shared lots of history and had suggestions of where to go in each town. All suggestions were excellent. One day was spent in San Gimignano and Siena. One day was in Chianti where we went to 5 different villages and the last tour was Pienza and Montelpulicano with a drop off in Rome. From the start (planning with Barbara) to the finish, this a class operation. It was money well spent.

Stefano is very knowledgeable. It was great to not only see Tuscany, but to also learn so much about the history. He provided maps and helpful instructions when we were dropped off to explore the villages we visited. Highly recommended!

Stefano and his team showed us the beauty of Tuscany from small villages, through the countryside, to the larger cities. Dropped us off (group of 12 friends, 2 vans) at each venue with instructions/maps of where to go, where to meet and often walked with us till we were ready to venture out on our own. Perfect guide -- not intrusive but always helpful, punctual and friendly. Wine tastings, historic sites, wide open country, world famous gelato -- we experienced it all. Stefano's knowledge of Tuscan history and his passion for the area were outstanding. Can't thank him enough for this kind of personal tour. Highly recommended!

First, I must state that we did not end up being able to visit Italy as we planned. Barbara and I had worked out all of the details of our wonderful trip via email well before the date of our trip and we were very excited about our planned tour. At one point in our correspondence, I asked about the refund policy, as we have elderly parents, and you never know...She told us there was a cancellation policy of a refund if notified by 10 days. We had a tragic incidence in which another family member died and we had to cancel our much anticipated trip. After cancelling with the airlines and our travel agent, I remembered our tour scheduled with Tuscan Sunshine tours. I reviewed our emails and realized that it was EXACTLY 10 days away. I immediately notified Barbara. Our money was refunded through Paypal. There was a small fee, but we received credit for the majority of the deposit. I am very impressed that they did this. It gives a lot of confidence that with working with a foreign company that you know nothing about except what you read on reviews, that they kept their word. As soon as we are able, we will definitely be rescheduling our tour with this company!

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.
