Cars & Drivers
Our cars are Mercedes-Benz minivans, minibuses and sedans.
Clients can hire a car with driver for any type of journey, over short, medium or long distances. It is also possible to book the service for more than one day.
The vehicles have permits for entering the historic centres of every Italian city, and for using reserved lanes. This means our clients need not worry about arriving late, or of not finding a vehicle at their disposal upon their arrival.
At Tuscany Service boasts a modern fleet of vehicles using the latest Mercedes-Benz models. This means a level of comfort that makes any journey peaceful and pleasurable, where you can choose to listen to good music, watch a movie, or read articles on art and culture. All our vehicles are kept clean to the highest hygienic standards. They also include fresh water and refreshing moist towels.
Our automobiles are safe. They are subjected to monthly checks, obligatory annual servicing, and insured to the highest levels.
When booking, we ensure the traveller will have a backup vehicle available should their main vehicle break down. This does not affect the agreed price.
The base for departures and arrivals is in Florence.
Mercedes Viano and Vito
These minivans are practical and have all the options needed for comfort: ergonomic, reclining leather seats; two-zone climate control; tinted windows; video screens, and a microphone for tourist guides. These minivans are suitable for any journey with driver thanks to the versatility of the vehicle, which can be easily modified to increase or reduce the space for passengers and luggage.
The minivan is our usual recommendation for most services.
