My daughter and I loved our day with Massi! Of all our days on our last trip to Italy, this one was the highlight. Massi is so professional, courteous, and knowledgeable. He was born around Siena, and knows the area so well. Massi speaks english well...so no communication issues. We went on a private tour of a winery and had the most delicious lunch there (and he also surprised us with a pop-up prosecco picnic...his skills at sabrage are something to see!). He even drove out of the way a bit to show us the most scenic cypress tree lined drive, and stopped many times on the country roads for awesome photo-ops. He and his wife Deb will work hard to give you the such beautiful memories, making sure they meet your sight seeing wishes. I can't recommend Massi highly enough. Hoping when covid goes away to be able to return once more for another awesome day.

Deb & Massi are a great team and truly created a bespoke Tuscan countryside excursion for us that we will never forget (and we are not easily pleased). Through their super efficient WhatsApp service we were able to research and organise the perfect itinerary before our holiday. Pickup from Florence in Massi’s air conditioned mercedes then a scenic drive to Greve, Montefurielle for amazing picture stops and mini tours of each village before stopping for wine tasting and a delicious lunch over looking the beautiful wine yards at Casa Emma. We finished off in San Gimignano (for the best Gelato in the world) before heading the Michael Angelo view point where Massi had arranged champagne cheese and biscuits for us with the most beautiful view of Florence! Amazing knowledge, service and value we were safe to leave but hopefully use their services again. The best in town for sure! Thanks again Deb and Massi. Megan & James 🇬🇧

Response from debinitaly5, Owner at Italy Unfiltered
Responded 20 Sep 2020
Ciao James and Megan, thank you for your kind words. It was my pleasure to plan your day with us. I know we had so many ideas to start with, a big list of things you wanted to see, taste and experience. I think we did well to get in as much as we could for you, without making the day seemed rushed. We hope you can return to Tuscany sometime soon. When you do we will be here waiting for you. Congrats on your engagement, how exciting and romantic your trip must of been for the two of you! ciao ciao deb and massi

Deb and Massi were nothing short of amazing. From the first email I quickly recognized that Deb had a passion for Italy and could tell that she would share that during our travels with Massi. She was quick to respond, answered all my questions (many, many, many questions) and always made me feel like a friend. Massi picked up my husband and I in Florence at our hotel and took us on a private winery tour. He stopped along our travels for breath taking photos (he is an excellent photographer as well!) as we roamed along the beautiful hills. I highly recommend reaching out when you are in Italy next as being with Massi will be the highlight of your trip.

We highly recommend taking a tour with Italy Unfiltered. We did a full day tour of Montepulciano with Massi. He was so informative and we learned so much about the wines of Italy. We loved both wineries that were selected for us to visit. Lunch at the second winery was amazing! There was also some spare time and we were able to select from a few different ideas of another stop. We enjoyed the opportunity to visit two other wineries. We will definitely be back for another tour with them!

Where to even start..... We booked the Chianti tour first then we decided to add the Brunello tour as well. Both tours were the highlight of our Italian trip. We were picked up for the Chianti tour in Florence where we were staying and our journey began. We first were taken to a regional wine festival where lots of local wineries were sampling their wines, olive oils and balsamic vinegars all of which were satisfying and started acquiring wines at that point. We were then take to several family owned organic Chianti Classico wineries where we had an amazing Tuscan lunch. We were able to taste the amazing wines and balsamic some where up to 30 years old. Our day ended up being delivered to our next destination Siena. Next day we were picked up at our Airbnb for the Brunello tour. It was a little rainy that day but that did not hamper or prevent Massi from delivering us another fantastic day of tasting wine. Lunch in Montalcino was an awesome treat where Massi got to give us a little more history of the region. We continue on to several more Brunello wine makers and had incredible tasting views. While we did not get to meet Deb this time around we hope to get to meet her on our next journey back to Tuscany as we know we will do more of their tours in the near future. Massi was awesome, he helped translate what the winemaker wanted to say so we would have a better understating of their process and the passion they put into their wine. Since Massi knows the area so well you get a lot of history that you would not normally find elsewhere. We highly recommend their wine tours and we look forward to spending more time in Siena as we found it to be so peaceful and seemingly unchanged in time. Until next time. Thanks Massi and Deb
