Since 2007 Martina Beatrice Manfredi, founder and sole manager of Tuscany at Heart, has put her heart into Tuscany and her guests.
She has worked with great passion and professionalism, dedication and enthusiasm, giving travelers of all ages and interests the opportunity to experience a truly authentic human connection, while discovering Tuscany’s culture and beauty.
In addition, Martina has been working in respect of natural environment, local traditions and customs.
As a result over the past seven years Tuscany at Heart has been recognized as a leading private guided tour company and awarded with different certificates of excellence.
In 2018, thanks to our guests’ wonderful feedback, Tuscany at Heart was awarded a “All of Fame Certificate of Excellence” (based on 5 years of 5 star reviews from travelers) and a Certificate of Excellence to date (in current year it was changed into ‘Travelers’ Choice’) from Tripadvisor.
In 2019 Tuscany at Heart was shortlisted and then recognized as ‘Private Tour Company of the Year’ (Travel and Hospitality Awards) and ‘Exclusive Tour Operator of the Year’ (Luxury Travel Guide Europe Awards):
”It is clear to the LTG judges, and to each guest that Martina guides around Tuscany, that she possesses exceptional tour guiding expertise. Having been a guide for over 12 years now, Martina knows how to be both informative and engaging, and although the judges find her knowledge of Tuscany outstanding, it is her unfaltering ability to spark an inspirational energy in every tour that most impresses the panel”.
Last but not least, since 2015 to date Martina has been recommended as an expert local Tour Guide of Pisa, Tuscany, by ‘Rick Steves Europe’.
It reads: “Martina Manfredi happily guides visitors through the Field of Miracles, but her real passion is helping them discover Pisa’s other charmes, from hidden gardens and piazzas to cuisine and artisans”.
We feel very honored and grateful for this!
