Maurizio took my husband and I on a fantastic tour of Chianti. I would highly recommend utilizing his services. The tour was great, very fun and informative. I would definitely ask Mau for another tour on my next visit!

We used Maurizio for 3 tours. A wine tour in Tuscany, a morning tour of Florence and a driving/tour of Cinque Terre. All were absolutely wonderful....full of information and history which really put things in perspective for our whole trip. The wineries we visited not only had great wine, but were beautiful and local....you got to meet and talk to the owners. The overview of Florence allowed us to manage the rest of our visit in Florence so much easier and the driver/guide in Cinque Terre was invaluable in getting us around to be able to see things from a variety of perspectives. I would highly recommend using Maurizio for your travel in the Florence/Tuscany area. His communication was timely and thorough....very enjoyable experience all around.

We used Mau for 3 days in Tuscany for 2 families with teens. We went to Chianti region, Sienna, Montalcino etc :)
He took us to some great places including our lunch stops. He was always professional and informative.
He also communicated extremely well and promptly over email prior to our trip. I highly recommend him!

My wife and I traveled to Tuscany to celebrate our 40th wedding anniversary. We booked into a wonderful hotel south of Florence, Borgo Scopeto, and planned to tour the Tuscan region. Even though we had a rental car, we did want a bit of structure to our tours. Based on the strong recommendation from some friends, we contacted Maurizio Bellini to arrange a guided tour. Based on our general objectives he suggested two one day tours.. one to the east of our hotel and then one to the west. During our tours we visited Volterra and San Gimignano and then Montepulciano and Pienza. Maurizio was a true expert on the region's history. He was entertaining and educational. He gave us a terrific briefing while we drove to our locations and then prepped us to "wander" through each location. He also had organized reservations for lunch at truly wonderful restaurants. He arrived on time, drove very carefully and simply was a true professional. And, his English was quite good!

If you wish to have a fun time and learn a bit about this wonderful region, call Maurizio!

We were lucky enough to have a week of visiting the cities all over Tuscany with Mau.. First of all, he is an excellent driver which means I was relaxed and enjoyed our trips every day. He is professional, reliable, knowledgeable and very friendly to be with. He knew what the weather would be each day and planned our trips accordingly. Our drives to each village was informative and we had a good Understanding of the history of each place along with the knowledge of the various grapes and wines of the different regions. Mau knows many of the wine makers personally so we had some very private lunches at the vineyards along with wine tastings that were perfect. We were able to purchase wine and olive oil to have shipped home as well. His restaurant recommendations for Florence were fantastic and gave us insight into where the locals eat .
