  • Pick up was not good,had to walk a distance to bus.When arrived at each destination,bus parked a great distance away. Unfortunately,the young woman leading the group lacked the necessary experience to properly manage everything. Wanted to love the visit to Siena but left disappointed.

  • This tour was wonderful! I would suggest be prepared to walk very long distances and up lots of very steep hills. The hill towns are so beautiful and interesting to experience with lovely little shops. In San Gimignano there was a shop called Ceramiche Gori with porcelain vases and jewelry that I loved. The day was packed with lots of wonderful things and I would highly recommend this tour!

  • Unfortunately, we had to wait for an hour for the bus to pick us up from our designated spot to be shuttled to Florence. The driver said there was a problem in Pisa. We then arrived in Florence to find we had to wait another hour for the main bus to pick us up due to traffic problems. The trip to Gimignano and Siena was lovely and the Chianti wine tasting was great. By the end of this long day which was two hours longer than it should have been they still took us to another castle to see which I think everyone would have been happy to forego but we weren't given a choice. I think it was one of those stops where they hope you will spend money so they are obliged to stop there regardless of the time. If I were to do it again I would simply hire a private driver to take you where you want to go.

  • Fabulous, don't miss it!!

  • Visited beautiful places. Barbara was a great guide. Maria in Siena was amazing! Wish we had more time in Siena and less in Chianty winery, visit and lunch not so good. Rafaelo went out of his way to make sure we were taken back to our departure places late at night. Molto Grazie.
