My Mom, daughter, and I took the Val d'Orcia & Brunello Wine Tasting tour with Sergio in April 2013. We knew someone from home who was working at a vineyard in Montalcino. Sergio modified his tour to accomodate us going to Il Cocco. It was an amazing day! He picked us up at the B&B in the middle of vineyards near Certaldo and off we went. We were together for about 12 hours and every minute was fabulous! Sergio is immersed in the region and can speak of history, industry, wine, olives/oil, culture, cheeses, you name it! He is brilliant! The tour was fantastic and a highlight of our stay in Italy.

Once more a big thank you for the excellent trips to Val d'Orcia and the Chianti region. Your trips were the highlight of a rainy 6 day period in Florence.
You now come highly recommended to anybody who asks us about a guided tour in Tuscany!
We learned a lot and truly enjoyed your professional yet very amicable approach to guiding us through the Tuscan wines and sights.
Also 'hats off' for the timely pick up and extra time you always had available for us.
We'll definitely return!!!
All the best.

Thank you so much for the wonderful day in Chianti wine country. The wine was excellent, the day was beautiful and you were a wonderful tour guide. We feel like we are now experts in wine, olive oil and Grappa! This was just wonderful - and we would recommend your services to anyone and everyone. Thanks again - you have helped to make our trip so very memorable.

Steve and I wanted to thank you for the wonderful tour of Tuscany, especially the Chianti region. It was awesome to visit San Leo and Casaloste winery. Our hosts were remarkable and the passion for their products and the process truly showed.
Our son, the chef, was so impressed with the olive oil. I know he won't share it with anyone!! We can't wait for our Reversus Super Tuscan wine to arrive!
If and when we return to Italy, we will look you up for another tour when the weather is better! I am attaching a picture in case you keep these types of memories of your clients. Grazi!

My family and I booked the Chianti tour with Sergio for July of this year. We were so impressed by the generous and accommodating experience he provided us and would absolutely recommend a trip with Sergio if visiting the Tuscany area. We all agreed that the tour was the highlight of our trip! Sergio went out of his way to make our tour a memorable experience. I must point out an example to illustrate the wonderful host Sergio is. At the end of our day with him, my father mentioned the light was perfect for pictures, being the photography buff that he is. Sergio actually offered to drive back to a spot he had pointed out at the beginning of the day just so my dad could take a great picture! This was after he was scheduled to be done for the day! This is just one example of how gracious Sergio was towards our family. He really made our experience a spectacular one. Thank you Sergio for such a wonderful experience and fond memories! We can not wait to come back and visit you!

My friend and I booked Sergio for a wine tasting and trip to San Gimignano and Siena. Sergio was the perfect guide for the day. He took us to an organic family owned vineyard where we met and tasted with the lovely owner Flavia. Our day continued with drives to the other two towns, where Sergio often stopped along the way to find the perfect scenic photo opportunities. Sergio was polite, extremely knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed not only his tour, but his company for the day and would highly recommend taking one of his tours. I only hope we can return to Italy again soon and take one again ourselves.

My husband and I booked a special custom tour with Sergio last summer, a few places of interest around Lucca and Forte de Marmi. My husband wanted to retrace his father's footsteps and visit the towns his father had been to and fought in during World War II. This tour turned out to be the highlight of our trip to Italy; we had such an amazing adventure. Words can't express the importance Sergio has played as our tour guide, we wouldn't have been able to do this trip without him. Some of the places Sergio took us to were remote, so wouldn't have felt comfortable driving there. We were able to relax and enjoy without worrying about driving in a foreign country. Sergio is knowledgeable, professional and has a great sense of humor, but he went over and beyond our expectations. Sergio did some research on the subject matter and took the initiative to contact & set up a meeting with a journalist who is knowledgeable about this subject matter as well. His excellent bilingual skills, in both Italian and English, was instrumental in connecting us to the people of the towns we visited. Sergio was great in giving us the space to walk around, explore and take pictures.
We're hoping to go back to Italy this summer and would like to do a food & wine tour with Sergio. We talked a lot about food & wine, he is very knowledgeable & passionate about this.

Sergio you made the vacation perfect for us! We are so glad we chose you as our week long guide, driver and friend. We would never have discovered all the special places that you brought us to see; the vineyards, the olive oil shop, the wonderful restaurants and all the interesting information concerning Pisa, Luca, Sienna, San Gimignano, etc. We had so much fun! Thanks too for the morning cappuccino and sweet rolls! Traveling together in your new van was a joy. If we rented cars we would have spent half of our time getting lost! Thanks for teaching us a little Italian, lots of local history and culture, and present day politics. It was such fun!
