  • I am very late in writing this review we took the tour in Late November 2016. I will say that this tour made for one of the best days in my life! I was in Rome with my 2 children and my daughters fiancé and wanted them to see Florence and the country side so I booked this tour! Wow, what a day, the tour guides in each location were wonderful as was our driver. The best part of our day was our private lunch and wine tasting at the Podere LaMarrona Winery/Olive Groves. We had a very simple lunch with was perfect . The Olive Oil is Fantastic and we imported wine for my daughter's wedding! A day my children and I will ALWAYS remember. It is a bit expensive but SO worth it!

  • Alex was a great tour guide, so professional, with enthusiasm and knowledge. He was a delight. Siena and San Gimignano were so beautiful, and happily at this time of year, not crowded. We had a good amount of time in each town and our winery tasting and lunch couldn't have been nicer. Very warm and friendly host, and delicious food! We had a great day. A special tour guide was included in Siena who was local and she explained all about the Palio race, and through the stunning Duomo. Highly recommend.

  • Our driver Alessandro was excellent. He shared local knowledge on the way to Siena and San Gimignano, and made an added stop on the way back so we could see the sunset at Piazzelle Michelangelo. Alessandro also went above and beyond to accommodate my sore knee, dropping me off in alternate areas.

  • The tour was fantastic! Both our driver and local guide are very friendly and helpful. One of my husband's feet was swollen so it was difficult for him to walk. During the walking tour they looked after us, made lots of stops, made sure we could catch up.

  • Excellent tour I enjoyed both towns and the food and wine was great! The Mercedes van was comfortable and Alex our driver was very knowledgeable!

  • Absolutely loved this tour..... only 8 travelers in a minivan with our guide Francesco who was amazing..... We especially loved the lunch and wine tasting, olive oil tasting .... The pasta was divine and the hospitality of the host whos family has been in the wine, olive oil and balsamic business for many generations was fabulous..... Their home and vineyards are on top of the world with a view of Tuscany that is to die for...... We also especially enjoyed the Medieval village of San Gimignano, the stone towers, which at one time were as many as 70
    And now are down to 12. This village is a must see .... Its hard to believe that the churches and homes of the inhabitants are in such perfect condition after all the centuries gone by..... I highly recommend this excursion, and be sure to ask for Francesco, our phenomenal guide.....

  • One of my favorite day trips! Such nice group of people and so enjoyed our tour guide, Francesco was a ten with knowledge and getting around. He was super nice and made the day extra special. Thank you again, Francesco!

  • A must do excursion. Our guide was great.

  • This was a great tour and Leo, our tour guide was so informative and personable. We had a super meal with various wines at a family owned winery. It was fantastic seeing Sienna and San Gimignano and had free time in both places. So much history!

  • Fun tour and the lunch was great!
