“Transfers and More”
Andrea was amazing, we had booked him for our transfers and Accademia on Tuesday morning as we were in Florence for Monday and had a 11 am train on Tuesday morning and I just didn't want to miss Accademia. Andrea made my trip to Florence the most convenient one in-spite of our time paucity. He provided us with lovely Lara for our trip to Pisa who was very informative and more like a friend than a driver or guide. Accademia with Alessandra was wonderful. my children loved her,she made the musuem so v. interesting for my 2 and 5 year olds. My younger one just did not want to leave her after the visit finished. Andrea himself was very lively and helpful. He really made everything in Florence so Easy for us.

“Transfers & Tours”
I have just spent three weeks traveling around Tuscany and Umbria as a solo traveler. Most of the time I used buses and trains to get from one town to the next, however, it was going to take several changes of buses and trains to get from Montalcino to Pitigliano and so I arranged to use Under the Tuscan Sun to transfer me between these two hilltop towns. What a pleasure to be fetched in a Lancia and driven through the beautiful countryside by a local guide. I would strongly recommend this company.

“Trip of A lifetime parts I and II”
Andrea, Andrea, Andrea!... I need not say more! Anyone who has affiliated themselves with Under The Tuscan Sun Tours knows exactly what I mean. Twice we have visited the Tuscan Region of Italy and would not consider a return without Andrea and his staff. Thanks to JoEllen at Go Travel in Altamonte Springs, FL, and the affiliation with Creative Destinations of Lake Mary, FL, our visits to Italy will be forever trips of a lifetime. Getting to know Andrea personally allows me to say such strong statements. I'm sure he has many friends from all over the world because of his attention to detail, care and love for his job and country. Born and raised in the Florence area, he has intimate knowledge of every nook and cranny of the Tuscan region and especially Florence. Trained and schooled in History, he is a wealth of knowledge. I will say this one time and try to be as clear as possible: DO NOT VISIT THIS AREA WITHOUT USING HIS COMPANY! My wife and I met this man as a tour guide and ended up with a friend for life. Need I say more, experience it for yourself. Ciao, mi cumpari !

“Highlight of our trip!”
We looked carefully at several of the Chianti region tour offerings based in Florence. We are so glad that we booked with Under the Tuscan Sun. It was the highlight of our week in Italy! Andrea, the company's owner, led us on a simply lovely day through the countryside with most of the time spent in Siena, San Gimignano and at an extensive wine-tasting at Tenuta Torciano which included a simple but very flavorful lunch. We especially appreciated Andrea's ability and willingness to talk about a wide range of subjects Italian--art, architecture, wine, food, customs, politics, family life and religion. He was charming, energetic and accommodating. We would schedule another tour with him without hesitation.
