We had such a lovely day with Serena exploring Tuscany. She is extremely knowledgeable about the area and was able to show us a lot of beautiful and nice things. She knows most of the locals in the area and felt like it was a friend taking us around. Highly recommend her tours.

We had a truly lovely day in the Tuscany hills with Serena. Her English is excellent with local knowledge and contacts in every town. Serena went above and beyond to help with our travel arrangements.

Serena was absolutely fantastic! We have been expats in many places around the world and always enjoy travel. A good guide makes ALL the difference. Serena took us on a day tour of Pienza and Montepulciano. She was super knowledgeable, extremely friendly and very enthusiastic. She made us feel like part of her family and we were instantly comfortable with her. You cannot go wrong using Serena to make the most of your visit to Tuscany.
The tour was fantastic, we were looking for a tour guide around Siena and Pienza and we found out Serena's site which was exactly what we were looking for! Traditional food and high quality wine tour it's what we done in the first day then we went out visiting all the hidden and prestigious places from Pienza and Siena and we finished taking the best dinner from a trattoria in Siena. it was amazing!
Serena is the best Tuscany tour guide. My wife and I had a most enjoyable 10 days in Tuscany with Serena as our guide and just like a friend. This will be our second time with her and are looking forward to our next Tuscany experience with her. Our days were full but new rushed.

We've done three wonderful one-day private Tuscany tours with Serena over the past two years and are looking forward to a fourth next fall. On each, we were so impressed with her knowledge of the history of the places we were visiting, the cuisine, the arts, shopping, restaurants, wines, and wineries. In short, she gave us an experience we never could have created on our own. And she is just fun to be with!

Serena is fabulous! So friendly and knowledgeable- she became our new best friend for the 3 days she guided us. She took us to many cities, sites and wineries. Even an old flour mill! We can’t praise high enough. She made our visit to Tuscany so wonderful and we learned so much. Highest recommendation!
Michael and Wendy Appleby
Just finished our Three day Tuscany tour with Serena. She was everything you would hope that your guide would be! She was friendly, on time every day, and full of information and energy, interesting little tidbits about every area, and very knowledgeable about the region. I can’t imagine coming to Tuscany and not using Serena! We would highly recommend her and we will definitely be seeing Serena again the next time we are in beautiful Tuscany

Bellissimo tour a Montepulciano. Precisa, cordiale, esaustiva e molto simpatica. Le due ore abbondanti sono passate in armonia e piacevolezza. Grazie a lei abbiamo conosciuto un artigiano che fa mosaici ed è stato veramente interessante. Le indicazioni di qualche posticino di buon gusto sono state assolutamente soddisfacenti. Abbiamo potuto constatare che è ben voluta dalle persone del posto in quanto passeggiare insieme a lei è un saluto continuo con negozianti, ristoratori e persone comuni. Siamo rimasti più che soddisfatti e per altre visite in zona sicuramente la contatteremo. Grazie di tutto Serena.

Serena brought our tour to life and showed us an authentic side of Tuscany. We felt like locals, made some new friends along the way and tasted our way through the towns. Serena shared so much knowledge with us and has so much passion for this place. If you want to fully experience Tuscany, this is a must do tour!

Serena you really were the highlight of our trip! The day we spent together will be in our memories as well as all the delicious wines and food. Your ability to communicate and share was incredible. Thanks again Serena! Cheers from Nonnino!
Tom Harshman and family
Serena was the best tour guide we could ask for. She was truly knowledgeable and a delight to explore Montepulcino and Siena with. We would recommend her to everyone visiting this region, and hope that we are able to connect with her again the next time we visit!

I have been meaning to email you to let you know what a great time we had with you over the two days we spent in Montepulciano doing the wine tasting and gourmet tours. It was a terrific time with great laughs, great food and great company. It wouldn't have been the same without your sense of humor and willingness to laugh with us throughout the day. My side actually hurt from laughing so much. I am including a photo from the one lunch right before we had the coffee killer grappa that made tasting the unripe olive seem like a pleasure. I have forwarded your contact information to some friends of mine, John and Rick who are heading to Tuscany with their siblings in the next month and suggested they reach out to you directly.
David and Krissy Komrska..
Thanks for a wonderful day yesterday. Jennifer and I could not have imagined a better introduction to Pienza and Montepulciano, as well as the Tuscan countryside. How extraordinarily beautiful. We do want to come back, hopefully either spring or fall of 2019. So appreciated having the benefit of your expertise and warm company for the day!
As you can see, sent greetings to Richard.

Hello Serena! We arrived home safely on Thursday night, and we want to express our appreciation for your wonderful tour!. What an experience!! - one that we'll never forget. Everything was perfect - the visits to the olive-making operation, the wineries, the cheese tasting, the lovely lunch and the tour of the area were all fantastic! We know that it was a long day for you, and that we asked many questions, but you answered each one, and we certainly will be recommending your services to others who want to visit Tuscany.
Thanks again for showing us the "real" Italy!!!
Maybell, Bobbie, Ewen and Denny

Once again, GRAZIE!!!!!!!! Our day with you touring Montepulciano, Pienza, and Monticchiello was the highlight of our vacation. Within the first hour, it felt like we were travelling with a friend rather than on a tour. Thanks
Geri and Joe
Buon Giorno, Serena... Hope all is well with you and family in Italy. As we spoke by phone today I mentioned that I have some very good friends and work partners who will be travelling to Tuscany from November 10 – 17th. I told them about the wonderful tour you provided to my wife and I... olive oil production, wine making & tasting, the fabulous “pici” pasta, and finally the farm visit for cheese tasting. It was a great tour and we really appreciated your knowledge of the “beautiful” Tuscan culture!.

Hello Madame Tuscany!!
Just want to thank you directly for being our great guides to Tuscany. Every thing was first class, informative and personal.
We are now planning our next trip to tuscany for 2012!!
Thank you very much for the recipes. I can’t tell you how much we still talk about our day with you in Tuscany. It was absolutely perfect and it was all due to you. In fact, we’re already talking about coming back to Italy next year and if we do you and Tuscany will be a part of our agenda. Per you request, below is a recipe for true New York American cheesecake. Hope you enjoy and keep it touch!
