In 2013, I was laid off from a very average corporate job. It turned out to be a blessing in disguise because it allowed me to open Vivace Gourmet Personal Chef services. I am now in the process of opening a new Italian themed coffee and sandwich café . In 2015, I took my first trip to Florence and Tuscany and fell in love!
I was fortunate enough to make wonderful friends in Florence almost immediately that were more than willing to help me follow my dream of conducting Boutique Tours of Tuscany. In 2016, I conducted my first tour.
I absolutely love Florence, and I feel lucky to have so many wonderful friends there. I believe that large group tours don't allow one to explore this region as it should be. Quality, not quantity is the Italian way.
I hope that you will join me to experience Florence and Tuscany as a local, not a tourist. Ci vediamo in Tuscany!
