"A Smart Decision"
Nov 2021
Without question, the best decision our family of four made before traveling to Tuscany was employing Simone and TUSCAN PRIVATE DRIVER! This one decision allowed us the maximum best use of our time in Italy and totally eliminated any stress we would have surely incurred (due to our language barrier) while driving, navigating, or parking a small rental car on our own. It was definitely more pleasant for us to see Tuscany via a large Mercedes van with Simone behind the wheel. He is an exemplary driver and pleasure to travel with. We spent SIX, 8-10 hour days with him, beginning with our pick-up at the Florence airport and ending with our transfer to Rome. We booked 5 "City Tours illustrated on the TPD website. Some additional benefits were Simone's recommendations and reservations made in our behalf for fabulous lunches. One day we were able to have an unexpected lunch/wine tasting at an organic farm located on land once owned by The Vatican. Pope Pius IX was served wine here around 1850. Simone took such great care of us, we felt as though he were family. Simone and TPD are much more than a car service and receive our family's highest recommendation. Give yourself a real treat and book with them for your next trip to Italy. It is worth every penny and then some! The Snows' will unquestionably do so again.

Tuscany with Simone
Nov 2021
If you're traveling to Tuscany and looking to book a private driver, I highly recommend booking Simone's services. My mom and I traveled to Pienza and we planned two days with him. Day 1 he picked us up at our hotel in Pienza and took us to Siena, Monteriggioni and Montepulciano, then dropped us back off at the hotel. Day 2 was Orvieto and Cortona. He was so nice and professional - very knowledgeable about the area and told us some great info, but also let us nap peacefully post-wine while he drove us home. We are already planning a trip back to the area and 100% for sure will book with him again.

Great car service, pleasant and professional
Oct 2021
Our party of four needed transportation from Cinque Terre to Foligno, Umbria, and rather than change trains four times, or rent a car for the day, we decided on using a car service. From the first communication, Simone was responsive to all my questions and clear and professional in his answers. He was right on time to collect us, was personable and pleasant during the almost 5 hours of driving, and pointed out items of interest along the way.
The Mercedes van was clean and comfortable and Simone was a perfect companion to make the day so easy and enjoyable.
I would absolutely recommend Tuscan Private Driver and Simone, and would not hesitate to utilize this service again.

Best Car & Driver Service in Italy
Sep 2021
We just returned from an amazing 3-week tour of Tuscany, Umbria & Le Marche regions in Italy using TUSCAN PRIVATE DRIVER, Simone for several itineraries. We have toured Italy for the past 15 years using trains and rental car but decided to use private car and driver on this trip. We read great reviews of TUSCAN PRIVATE DRIVER on TripAdvisor and contacted them Simone is the consummate driver - friendly, knowledgeable and extremely skillful and safe. He drove us to several historic city centers where we didn’t even think it was possible to drive. The Mercedes sedan and van he used on our various trips were extremely comfortable and immaculate. Our tour of Siena, San Gimignano & Monteriggioni was spectacular and stress-free. We highly recommend TPD and Simone and look forward to using them again on our next trip to Italy!

Book Tuscan Private Driver for a Relaxed and Memorable Trip
Oct 2021
We spent two days with Simone touring Tuscany and Umbria. Simone totally made our trip. He is extremely knowledgeable about this beautiful area of Italy and took us to fun and interesting places we never would have found on our own. He is a really competent driver, and easy to be with. Instead of spending our time trying to navigate, park and figure out what to see, we were able to totally relax and enjoy our time here, knowing that we were seeing not just highlights but “local” places that made our trip incredibly special.

The GOAT
Jul 2021
We had an insane 15 day honeymoon in Italy. I will say, HANDS DOWN, our day with Simone was the best part of the entire trip. He’s something else. Our wine tour turned into a Gladiator film tour and back to a wine tour and it was just perfect through and through. He is the best. We did Montepulciano, pienza and montalcino. I think about our day in Tuscany all the time.

Relaxing treat
Aug 2021
Simone was exactly what we needed for our trip in Tuscany . Very knowledgeable on the whole area, he took us to places that we would have never found on our own. Perfect wineries, great lunches , and the prettiest small towns to wander around. We were very comfortable with Simone's driving , which is a big plus on Italy's roads. We highly recommend the company and of course Simone :)

Amazing - will be using again
Aug 2021 • Couples
Best service in Tuscan region. We looked across all suggested car services from hotels and online sites and this was by far the best service with a price you can’t beat

Had a full day back and forth from Florence to Tuscan Vineyards. My girlfriend even left her sunglasses in a car and they shipped them back to her within 2 days

Fantastic service! I highly recommend them!
Aug 2021
I will definitely use Tuscan private driver again. They were very timely, had a clean van, and drove safely. The water they provided in the van was a nice touch. Simone was extremely helpful. He booked a couple of wine tastings for us and they were absolutely perfect. One of the wineries served us a delicious lunch. We also used Tuscan Driver as a way to transfer from different Air B&Bs. Simone pointed out different points of interest on our transfers. He was a great source of information and answered many questions regarding places to visit.
I highly recommend this company to anyone who needs transportation!

Romantic Adventures Under the Tuscan Sun
Oct 2020
After a last minute trip turned into a three day stay in Cortona, we were worried we would have trouble finding restaurants, wine tours and other recommendations on such short notice. Thankfully, we were connected with Simone, and he took care of the rest!

Simone is not only an expert on Cortona, where we stayed, but an expert on Tuscany, it's food, it's wine and other regions to explore in Italy as well. He was able to plan two PERFECT days of wine tours and tastings in Montepulciano and Montalcino. We enjoyed the most incredible wine, ate locally produced and homemade meals, and received private tours with many of the multi-generational owners of the vineyards and wineries we visited. Simone also took care of needs when it came to nightly transportation to and from Cortona as we were staying just outside the city, and went well above and beyond.

Finally, Simone added so much joy to our time in Tuscany. He not only shared a wealth of knowledge about Tuscany, but made us laugh, kept us entertained and became a true friend. He even tipped us off about a delicious restaurant in Florence where we would eat a few days later. He was right again!

We will be back to Cortona and my first call will be right to Simone. Your's should be too!
