Here are our top recommendations for knowledgeable, English-speaking minibus drivers for tours anywhere in Tuscany

For visitors to Tuscany who don’t drive or don’t wish to drive, there is an excellent alternative to public transport which allows you to create your own tour, namely, a private minibus driver guide. Our three recommendations all speak excellent English and are very knowledgeable about all aspects of Tuscan life, history and art. They have pre-planned tours that you can choose or, alternatively, are happy to work with you to create your own day tour. Although obviously more expensive than using public transport, these car and minibus tours are far more comfortable and much, much more efficient. The vehicles are air-conditioned and the drivers are licensed to drive into areas that are closed to ordinary traffic.

And, of course, if you engage a driver-guide for a wine tour, you will be able to taste, indeed, drink, as much wine as you wish without having to think about driving afterwards. All of our drivers are thoroughly conversant with the wines and wineries of Tuscany, and they will be able to arrange tastings at wineries not usually open to the pubic, and also midday snacks and meals at wineries.

Here is what Angie has to say about herself:

“Hello, I am Angie and I am the owner of TuscanyTourTime. I am a licensed tour operator who work mainly in the Tuscany region. My passion for wine lead me to obtain my Sommelier certificate and to start this amazing adventure as a tour operator. Since then I have been able to organise tours for thousands of customers from all around the world and helped them discover the boutique wineries of the Tuscany region. During our wine tasting tours, you will get to know the winemakers, taste organic wines from some of the best wineries in the area and immerse yourself in our local traditions. My strong connection with the local territory and people ensures the best wine tour experience.

I also have opened an e-commerce in which I sell the wines from my wine tours, in order to make sure that my clients can continue to appreciate our high-quality wines from home. We have selected the best wines from sustainable wineries.”

Here are some of Angie’s most popular tours.

The town of Panzano is situated in the very heart of the Chianti region, and a great reason to visit is that some of Tuscany’s best wines are produced here. Another reason would be the spectacular scenery with which the area is blessed.

Someone who can introduce you to the best of both is Sergio Ceccherini of Scenic Wine Tours in Tuscany. Sergio’s has lived in the area since his twenties, and has been a lover of wine and the countryside since that time. He started giving tours in 2005 and is a state registered chauffeur service (N.C.C.). Sergio’s wealth of experience will take you to the best family wineries for tastings, and the best scenic locations for your holiday photos. You’ll get well away from the crowds, but nonetheless be introduced to the region and its people as only a local can. Sergio’s tours are strictly private (you will not be sharing the van with other people). The pace is relaxed but every minute of your day will be filled with enjoyment. Pick up will be directly from your doorstep in Florence. Other locations are available on request.
