Easy Touring is run by their owners Wolfgang Schulz and Corinne Brient. Whilst, neither originate from the local area – Corinne is French and Wolfgang is German – they have lived in Tuscany for many years and amassed a wealth of knowledge and experience which now contributes greatly to the excellent standard and comfortable atmosphere of service they provide.
They both gratefully and graciously welcome all new travellers to beautiful Tuscany and look forward to being their guides, no matter how short the encounter. The journey is an open slate, full of stories to unfold, of lives to tell and exciting new adventures and discoveries.
«Wolfgang will meet your demands and drive you safely to your destination»
Originally from Hannover, he studied at the University of Bremen, Germany and specialized in administrative law. To finance his studies at that time, he worked as a taxi-driver. After moving to Italy some 20 years ago, he rekindled his passion for this former activity and chose to take it to a new level. He still thoroughly enjoys interacting with people from all different horizons but now he can also share his knowledge and love of this beautiful land.
In his spare time, he tends to another passion in life, namely making his own organic white and red wine and his own organic olive oil that he grows on several acres surrounding their home in the hills of Lucca.
He speaks fluent English, German and Italian.
«Corinne tends to the guests and will stay in touch with you before and during your trip»
