    I have done this tour several times with various family, friend and loved ones. The Siena, San Gimignano and Monteriggioni were fantastic, as was the guide, but the Chianti tour this time was terrible. We have been to some incredible vineyards in Tuscany as part of this tour for years, so I was so disappointed to be brought somewhere that was akin to a factory - and in a very flat part of what is a stunning and undulating part of Italy. The wines were terrible, we were shuffled in/out for an hour and it felt like a tourist trap.

    Siena and San Gimignano were both great stops. The wine tasting was a little rushed. It was a full day of tours.

  • 12-Nov-2022

    The tour was well organize. They even called us because we were to clise ti rhe time for the bus to leave. The guide guy was really funny .My favorite city was san giminiano(a true medivieal city and so pretty).

  • 12-Nov-2022

    This WAS A FULL DAY ! and extremely enjoyable. Importantly, the tour got us into the smaller towns in Italy and gave us enough time to explore each of them. We found a wonderful, small, family owned/run restaurant in Siena with absolutely amazing food and service that treated you like family

  • 09-Nov-2022

    The cathedral in Siena and the tour there as well as the wine tasting. Both were exceptionally good. The medieval towns were a nice historical perspective. Thanks

  • 08-Nov-2022

    Well organized, knowledgeable with a good English guide, picturesc. On the negative side there was a poor description of the location of the startinng trip.

  • 08-Nov-2022

    I recommend this tour to everyone who is visiting Florence. The bus very comfortable and the tour very punctual. The ride very pleasant and our tour guy “ Sandro” has a lot of knowledge and his great personality made our tour a blast. This tour was unforgettable. We did it in my husband’s birthday Sandro was making sure that his celebration’s memories will last forever. The wine tasting and lunch were absolutely delicious.

    Disappointed that bus parked so far from several of the sites we visited. First 2 towns had difficult hills to walk. Had I known I would not have chosen this tour. However, the trip was very well organized in English & Italian. Guides were very nice & knowledgeable. Winery was new & beautiful with ample tastings. Tuscany (final stop) was just beautiful & worth the tour.

    Let me start by saying that San Gimignano was our favorite spot...everyone was nice, smiled and the gelato was AMAZING!! Wine tasting was fun, balsamic vinegar and olive oils were delish! All areas were full of tourists, even at the enof October, which took away from the charm of each stop. Bus driver, Lucca was pretty amazing with the narrow streets and turns! Disappointed at not leaving on time at several stops due to those who are not punctual (tour guide too lenient and did not stick to rules she set on leave times).
