I am the owner and founder of We drive you.
I started the company 12 years ago and still now I am learning and finding new places and things about my beloved country, and especially my home in Tuscany.
I love my job and am always on the look out for new roads, new exclusive wineries, unknown cheese makers, or villages tucked away in the Tuscan hills and valleys.
My desire is to provide my guests with the best, unique and local experience Tuscany has to offer, either together with me or in the company of one of my carefully chosen team members.
I personally hand-pick all our partners to ensure that we provide you with the best and most authentic experience in Tuscany.
I was born in Swaziland (Africa) and have lived in Tuscany since 1999.
My love of the travelling and exploring places has provided me with a wealth of knowledge of the area and created a great proficiency in organizing trips in and out of Italy.
I have been working in tourism and client service since 2002 and have worked sporadically with Tomas for 5 years, until 2020, at which point my collaboration with We Drive You and Tomas became more permanent.
Let my organization skills, passion and knowledge of the area take the hassle out of planning your stay and experiences in Tuscany.
My friends call me Kenny
