My name is Jenner, owner of Vivace Gourmet Personal Chef Services in Tampa Bay.  Since May 2016, I have been conducting  Sprezzatura! Boutique Tour of Tuscany in the springtime and I have added a fall tour for 2020!  Sprezzatura is a small group tour with a maximum of 10 travelers so you can experience Tuscany as a local.  While we have a formal itineraries, the tours are relaxed and flexible.  Our small group status allows us to make unplanned stops to make wonderful discoveries!  Both experiences feature private tours with licensed guides and private tastings directly with the families and owners of small wineries and agriturismos.  Instead of feeling like a typical tour, you will feel as if you are visiting your Italian family! 

Reviews from previous tours: 

"Firstly, Chef Jenner. she has such a winning personality. Secondly, she took us to beautiful places where everyone made us feel like family, not like tourists. She was considerate to my needs of being older and not as mobile and quick as a youngster, and she chose a car and driver, Marco, who was just as personable and enjoyable as herself. Marco was able to give us some history and some inside info into the area where he grew up. They made the trip so very pleasurable."

"5 Star tour. Everything was well thought out and well planned. Hotel was fantastic including the continental breakfast.  Obviously the small group approach (not on a bus tour with dozens of other guests) was critical to my enjoyment. We loved the variety of wineries that we visited. From the large corporate to the smaller family run operations (which were our favourite - especially Giuseppe). The choices that you made for us to visit were fantastic! We also enjoyed both the welcoming dinner and the goodbye dinner - both were amazing experiences.  Hugely appreciated Marco and the personalized service he provided. He was amazing. Foodie tour and David's Museum was a very pleasant addition to this tour.

 I greatly appreciated your professionalism and lovely personality. Thank you so much for making our trip of a lifetime spectacular!!"
