    Our guide Georgia was Amazing! She was so knowledgeable and very interesting to listen to.
    The trip left from Siena. The views of the Tuscan area was Outstanding, the farm to table lunch was the best part of the trip. Would do this trip again!

    Tour guide should have known that the bathroom was near the bus instead of sending me all the way back up the main street.

    Beautiful views, delightful lunch, good guide. A small van tour is much p

    Beautiful countryside, good guide, small group as opposed to a big bus, delightful lunch and who would not fall in love with Pienza and Montepulciano.

    Wow - if I could give more stars, I would! This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Italy across Rome, Venice, Florence, and Siena. Corrado was an amazing guide, and took us through the rolling countryside of southern Tuscany, to small towns I'd only dreamed of. The views were breathtaking, and the farm lunch was so perfectly quaint and yet awe-inspiring the views were unreal! Visiting Pienza and Montepulciano was my dream come true, and I wish I could have spent more time in both beautiful towns. I can honestly say this was one of the top 5 days in my life - it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and the tour company took all of the guesswork out of the equation so we could truly relax and enjoy. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

    What a fantastic day. Would highly recommend as the small group makes it so nice and personal. We had a great day seeing all the beautiful scenery and a WONDERFUL farm to table lunch in a fantastic spot. Nice to have a bit of free time to shop and walk Pienza as well.
