Alessandro was super helpful and informative. Made sure all our needs were taken care of and was a great guide for the day.

We did a private tour in Tuscany last week with Alessandro which was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. At around 9:30 am, Alessandro picked us up from our Florence hotel in an air-conditioned Mercedes Benz Minivan. We then then proceeded to visit Siena which is lovely small town in Tuscany, then went on to Chianti on a spectacular drive through the many vineyards and olive farms. Chianti is the main wine region in Tuscany with beautiful landscapes. Alessandro was very knowledgeable about the area and the wine industry. We opted for a lunch at a local farm (and winery) which was truly amazing and highly recommended. We got to sample different types of homemade foods and various local wines. After lunch, we drove through some small and super charming Tuscan villages where we made couple of stops to explore the area. Again, Alessandro was very knowledgeable and went out of his way to give us a lot of valuable and interesting information about the area and these little towns. We then went back to Florence and were dropped back at our hotel. All in all, this is a fantastic trip and great value for your money. Uniquetuscany and Alessandro are your perfect partners for your day trips in Tuscany.

Out of our 3 weeks in Italy, this day was our favorite! Our driver, Alex, was perfect! He was prompt, had interesting stories and information to share with us, and was a very safe driver. Alex had our entire day planned, which was so appreciated. We started with a visit to Piazza Michelangelo in Florence, and then drove into Tuscany to visit Sienna and San G (I think this is my favorite Italian town!). We visited a private vineyard home and winery, and had a once-in-a-lifetime homemade lunch with wine pairings on their gorgeous property. Alex has the talent to know when to be there with you and talk, and when to let you have your own time and moments. But he always made sure we knew exactly how to reach him, where to meet him, and he guided our excursions perfectly. I hope to visit Florence many more times in my lifetime, and I fully intend to include a tour with Alex each time.
