  • This a Great way to spend the day visiting 2 wineries and visiting beautiful Tuscany towns. Best day trip of our time in Tuscany.

  • We had a fabulous day out with the wonderful Marco as our driver and guide. Our small group comprised five people and although the weather was disastrous heavy rain, thunder and lightning in the morning, Marco gave us options which allowed us to make the most of our day. San Gimignano was brilliant - but we were too early for the Cathedral and the museum. The wine tastings were superb, we had a lot of fun and learned a great deal about Chianti and the history of the area's wine making. Montalcino was also beautiful although most of the shops and cafés were closed due to it being a Sunday. We chose a tour at the end of the season so we were quite prepared for this. We would highly recommend the tour to anyone wanting to get a feel for the real Tuscany!

  • Really enjoyed this tour montes garden was beautiful and we had the perfect amount of time there, the lunch was delicious and in the most beautiful setting Great tour

  • Perfect, relaxed day with generous wine tasting at two wineries.

  • Very good guide. I think one wine tasting visit would have been enough for us. But, having said that still got to see some beautiful Tuscan towns and countryside. We would recommend it.

  • Adel was an interesting tour guide. A sense of humour and a bit of history. Just wright.

  • This was a really good tour with a good tour group. To have free time in San Gimignano was great and the winery visit, tasting and lunch was superb.
    My only suggestion is to skip the Montalcino tasting as the wines were far inferior and detracted from the earlier experience.

  • The itinerary was great but tour company seemed disorganized. When I called to confirm hotel pick up, they could not find the reservation. I told them I had paper vouchers in hand and was expecting to be picked up. They did pick us up but did not pick up another customer. Thus, we spent an extra hour at one town while somebody went back to Siena to pick him up. At the next two towns, we only had 30 minutes which was not enough. The first winery was great, but the second one was not. Our driver would tell us some history of the places we were going to but also just played music on the radio a lot. A mixed bag...

  • Excellent driver/ guide. If you like wine this is the tour to take.
