We were pleased to have 2 vans available to take 12 of us from the center of Tuscany to Cinque Terre. Mau was unavailable to he had two of his tour guides meet us at our villa outside of Greve. They were on time and drove us almost 3 hours to Cinque Terre. I would not have wanted to make that drive! However, the long drive was worth it as Cinque Terre is one of a kind. We would have liked to have more time there before heading back but it was a long day. I would recommend their services out of Tuscany!

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!
