My name is Gianni. I am a PhD geologist, certified nature guide and tour operator. Let me show you around the undiscovered Tuscany and set up your trip. I organize active tours. You will be able to enjoy beautiful walks in the countryside and through small villages, interact with the locals and sample great food and wines in Tuscany and Italy. I am a 46 year old resident, so passionate about my country. Only private tours or small group joinable tours. No bus crazy crowds! Let me put together a great active and cultural vacation for you and your friends. Please read my reviews.

This is a wonderful and well run tour by Gianni and his staff. Everything is well planned but relaxed and they seem to think about everything - hotels to dining. Also very helpful in making extra plans and accommodations, They also operate tours in Sicily.
