This tour was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy. Francesco is very knowledgable, friendly and genuine. His personal experience working at Ferrari, Ferrari FI and Lamborghini is evident. We booked the full day tour and visited the Ferrari and Lamborghini museums. The Lamborghini factory tour was excellent. During our tour Francesco learned that our son wanted to see the Maserati MC12, he surprised us by calling Maserati to see if they had it available in their showroom and went out of his way to take us there. The lunch in Maranello was high quality and generous. Francesco catered to our interests, including those of our teenaged boys; he spent time with us and also gave us sufficient time to wander. He made sure were were comfortable and made a special stop to buy us water as it was a very hot day. This was a very enjoyable day and we highly recommend this tour.

A highlight of our 2-week family trip to Italy was our day spent with Francesco on the Motorstars tour. We visited the Pagani factory, Ferrari museum & Lamborghini factory. I can’t say enough about Francesco and his hospitality as a tour guide. What was most impressive, however, was how he made us feel like such valued clients from start to finish. His level of customer service is as high as any of I have encountered in 30 years of extensive travel and tours. His energy and enthusiasm is unbridled and filtered its way into all of us throughout the day. Midway into our tour he took us to a wonderful restaurant for lunch (included in the price). While we dined, Francesco slipped out to the local pharmacy to get some medication for my youngest son who had a cold. After the delicious lunch, and before we departed to the Lamborghini factory, Francesco executed a surprise stop outside town to a parking lot which had 2 Ferrari’s and a Lamborghini waiting for us. No one knew about it other than me and Francesco. He helped me keep it a secret by making the arrangement with the company while everyone was in the Ferrari museum. It was a huge surprise, needless to say, especially for my wife who got to drive the NEW Ferrari GTC4 Lusso – which had more horsepower than the 488 GTB or the Lambo Hurrican driven by me and my oldest son respectively.
I can’t say enough about our experience and the unbelievable treatment we received from Francesco. If you are looking to have an amazing day in Italy, I highly suggest you book a tour with Francesco at Motorstars.

Hello i just wanted to say a massive thank you to Francesco he was absolutely amazing!! We went on the tour on Friday 16the June (today) and we couldn't of asked for anything more. From start to finish Francesco was brilliant so helpful, informative and interesting. You can tell he has a real passion for what he does and it makes all the difference. By far the best day of our holiday so far (I'm sure it will be overall) and left us with memories to last a lifetime. This was a real treat for us as we are on our honeymoon and wanted to do something we wouldn't normally. Francesco was so lovely as he knew it was our honeymoon and didn't forget even though we booked in January. I can't recommend this tour highly enough and I promise you will not regret booking. My husband was in heaven!! So was it, Lamborghini assembly lines definitely worth the extra 50 euro I don't think I will ever get this opportunity again. Thank you so much to all MOTORSTARS team you've really made our honeymoon one to remember. X.

“Tours of Ferrari museums, Lamborghini museum and factory tour”
A brilliant day out. Francesco was charming and a knowledgeable host, with many interesting nuggets of information. A nice comfy van with DVD screens, showing films about Ferrari, Lamborghini and the area.
A great lunch included, with a handful of fellow guests from around the world.
All in all 10/10, thank you

“Amazing personalized tour!”
This was one of the highlights of our trip to Italy and the best tour experience! Francesco was so friendly, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We were scheduled to tour Lamborghini, one of the Ferrari museums and the Maserati collection, but the Maserati collection had an event going until 5pm, so Francesco through in an additional tour of the Enzo Ferrari museum for no extra change and then took us to Maserati at 5pm. The included lunch was the best food we had on our trip (and most of the food in Italy is amazing!). I highly recommend this to car enthusiasts!

“Excellent day out with a great host! Well worth it!”
Had an excellent day of visiting the Pagani Ferrari and Lamborghini factories with Francesco with my 9 year old son. Francesco has been doing these tours for a long time, is well connected, very hospitable and accomodating, and will go out of his way to make sure you have the best experience possible. The lunch is also amazing and completely included in the price of the tour. The tours themselves are awesome especially the Lamborghini factory tour! You can add on drives or simulator experiences if you wish as well. I would definitely recommend Francesco and Motorstar tours as your go to option to anybody wanting a similar experience or who is remotely interested in cars. Thanks again and well done Francesco

“Freindly, technical, enthusiastic, passionate; all you hope for from a guide!”
Francesco is the most authentic, friendly guide I have ever encountered. He delivered an unforgettable experience to my 15 year old son and I, both knowledgeable car enthusiasts. His website claims "Our experience now enables us to provide a wealth of knowledge that we would love to share with you. If you are looking for professionalism, technical expertise and friendliness, the MOTORSTARS’s staff will make you feel like you are part of the team and ensure that you have an amazing and unforgettable experience! ...This was a very accurate summary of what we experienced. We visited Pagani, Ferrari, and Lamborghini. Lunch in Maranello was amazing too. Don't hesitate any longer, what a worthwhile tour!

“A fantastic day from start to finish. Francesco is Outstanding”
I cannot express highly enough just what a great guide and bloke Francesco is in general. The actual tours were great, but the way that Francesco tells you all about his previous employment with ferrari and lambo and consequent technical knowledge is the absolute clincher. It's a real point-of-difference from other tours which we'd considered booking. I couldn't have been happier with Francesco. Very Punctual, very friendly, fantastic insight (which the actual factory tour guides wouldn't know 1/3 of what Francesco does), his Mercedes van is really comfortable and Francesco is incredibly accomodating. We took our tour in early December 2016 and we had Francesco all to ourselves all day. We did the Ferrari & Lambo factory tours and ferrari drive package. All outstanding. Nothing is too much to ask of Francesco (within reason of course)! Being our first time in Italy, he even gave us great tips about other places to see and places to eat in Bologna (the meeting point for the tour). The only thing I would suggest as a small improvement is to forego the informative videos he has loaded in the van (about Ferrari and Lambo) and just ask Francesco himself, much more informative and a lot funnier also!
Mille Grazie, Francesco!
