    We had a terrific time. San Gimignano was a cute town to walk around in the morning. Monteriggioni was tiny. Not much there. It would be better to skip this and have more time in San Gimignano. Siena is marvelous. We have seen a lot of churches but the Duomo is breathtaking. Our guide in Siena, Camilla, was especially good.

    The food and wine at lunch was delicious. We didn’t buy any of the products from the winery because the prices were really high.

    Really wanted to take a trip to the Tuscan country side but did not want to worry about transportation. This trip gave us the opportunity to visit 3 cities plus a winery with lunch. This trip served it's purpose for getting us to and from the locations. Our guide was fine-- not overly enthusiastic in general but was informative. She made sure we were all safe and communicated updates and information about where we were. Since there were both english and spanish speakers on the tour, she communicated in both languages. Unfortunately, our tour got to the cities early in the morning and nothing was open so it was hard to enjoy the cities to their fullest potential given this (this is not the tour's fault, this is just the time of year-- low season).

    The winery was by far the best part. Lunch was spectacular and the wine was incredible. After lunch we went to Siena. Our guide there was very informative and we enjoyed our time, we were just a bit sleepy after the delicious food at the winery and all of the wine.

    This was a great tour and a good way to see a lot of small towns in Tuscany. The lunch and wine tasting was fun too, it was very filling the lunch. Unfortunately we had hit some traffic and our time in some of the towns was shortened (which was out of the tours control). I do wish that we had an actual tour guide in San Gimignano and Monteriggioni because we were kind of just set free, but the free time was nice cause most tours normally don't give much free time. The tour in Siena was very informative and interesting.

    Another reviewer said you should be "moderately fit" for this tour. But even the 20 year old college students were exhausted by the time we finished in Siena. First stop was San Gimignano, which by itself would be worth the trip. Monteriggioni was not worth the stop. The winery tour and lunch was better than I expected, but left us sleepy and lethargic - not the state to be in when tackling the hills of Siena. I am SO glad I saw Siena cathedral, but wish it had been the first stop, when we had more energy. The guide was very good, but our first, comfortable bus developed issues and was traded for a not very comfortable smaller vehicle. All in all, a good tour, but could have been great with a few tweaks.

  • 02-Dec-2019

    Really long day and we felt we could have skipped Monteriggione (very sleepy town - but could be due to low season). Tour was well organized and the guide (Sara) was very nice and pointed out sights to see. Facilitated tour at winery and lunch was lovely. Tour guide in Siena was very funny and engaging.

    Other than finding the pick up area hidden behind the train station the experience was great. Our multi-lingual guide was informative and kept us up to speed on what to expect. Plenty of time to look around and shop if you wanted.

  • 28-Oct-2019

    Overall this tour is good, we were just in Siena a bit too long for my liking. The wine tasting is simple and the product is delicious and host was funny and engaging.

    The best way to see some of the most wonderful sights in Tuscany. The relaxation of the motor coach versus the stress of driving or train transfers was well worth the cost.

  • 09-Sep-2019

    Great to see all these places in a day although it was long. Make sure you know exactly where the tour leaves from as signage is poor.

  • 26-Aug-2019

    Tour guide friendly and professional.

    Saw some beautiful Tuscan buildings and countryside. Sienna city guide Paul was good and also sense of humour.

    Would like to have spent slightly longer at each place, but as day trip time is limited.

    Would recommend.
