The day was good however a couple of constructive feedback points for you 1) when I first looked at the trip the meeting point was at the end of the road the hotel was on, however your e-ticket and website made us go to the main bus station 20 mins tram ride away and the tour guide commented as I hadn’t checked in a Julian’s Bar, as everyone else had. 2) the second point is to do with the final leg of the trip in Siena, when it was pouring with rain and we were about to head back to the bus and the tour guides boss had come up with another great idea for the small cost of €3 everyone could get the trenino back to the bus, half the clients didn’t want to do this and we were made to stand in the rain getting wet whilst the main tour guide waited for the trenino to arrive before the walkers were allowed to set off on foot back to the bus. Had I not stepped up and asked for the walkers to be allowed to walk with a guide without waiting, we would of been soaked!

The tour was really great - super interesting stories about Cinque Terre - amazing views and great spots for snorkeling! Really the only thing I would recommend is bring your own water - there was only one half liter bottle for each participant which was ok for our tour since it wasn't too hot, but otherwise it wouldn't have been enough. I definitly can recommend booking this tour - the boat is super clean and the crew extremely friendly! Thanks for this great trip!

Christian helped make our Florence experience memorable! My husband and I traveled throughout Italy with our two young children ( 8 and 5 years old) and they were so excited for their Fiat tour. They were the only kids on the tour but Christian made sure it fun and educational for them. The whole group was inviting and it was great to get to meet people from all around the world! My kids can not wait to travel more and still talk about how awesome the tour was. I highly recommend this tour with or without kids. We were taken to scenic views throughout Tuscany and even had to maneuver through the streets of Florence in a super fun classic Fiat. Everywhere we drove people would stop and wave because of the group of Fiats brought joy to everyone! This was the best tour we took in Italy and when we come back for a visit we are definitely doing it again! (Our tour was pre-covid)

We did a private wine country tour with Francesco in October 2019 (it has taken me entirely too long to write this review). We had a great time with Francesco. He is so personable and was so much fun to spend the day with. Ask him to tell you the story of why there are black roosters on Chianti Classico wine bottles. Francesco is very professional, was able to accommodate a change in plans based on our preferences, and delivered top-notch service throughout the day. If (when) we go back to Florence, we will be giving Francesco a call!
