    It was a great trip. Departure in time, excellent guide (Giuglielmo) or William, who went the extra mile to ensure all our questions were answered and that we were comfortable. The lunch at the Azienda Agricola Biologica was delicious! Definitely a nice touch.
    I would not hesitate to recommend this tour. San Gimignano and Volterra are worth the curvy but short road!!!

    Fabulous guide Amber, and small group made this a wonderful tour. Amber was amazing!!!! Highly recommend Tuscan Escapes for all tours in Tuscany.

    The local company was absolutely the best. We were 6 in the tour and we all had a blast meeting each other. Don't opt for cheaper tour - do small group - you will NOT regret it!

    Nice day - just enough driving versus visiting. Full day of beautiful scenery and villages. Really enjoyed it.

    We were very fortunate in that our tour was just the two of us with our excellent tour guide Elena.
    After a short drive we visited the small walled town of Montereggio, it was very well kept and a nice 15 minute walk around, not much to see, but very cute, as we were leaving 10ish a large tour bus was just arriving !
    Next stop was a nice drive to San Gimigano, a stunning town that has many towers 7 was over 70, most of the town is geared towards tourists, lots of shops, restaurants and a few churches, we went up to the old fort area an had some great views over the town and countryside. After 1 1/2 hours of investigating on our own, we then met up with Elena and drove to a local saffron farm for a wonderful lunch, perfect setting and company.
    After leaving the Saffron farm we stopped at Volterra another beautiful city famous for alabaster, which we visited a workshop to see this stone being worked on and some free time to investigate on our own
    Our tour guide Elena was a pleasure to be with and she made the day perfect from start to finish.
    Recommend tour if you like to investigate a little on your own and want to leave the driving/parking t someone else.

    Une expérience mémorable, sous la direction d'une guide remarquablement sympathique! La seule ombre au tableau: impossible de prendre le temps de vraiment approfondir le musée du duomo. Quant au repas chez le producteur, il était tout simplement gastronomique... Jacques

    Elena guided us from beginning to end on this fantastic trip touring the idyllic Tuscan countryside. We visited Volterra, charming and historic and San Gimignano, magnificent! The highlight was our lunch at the Tuscan saffron farm, delicious local food with our delightful hosts! Our group of eight were good fun. Elena had very good English and was very engaging and interested in us too! Thank you Elena for a memorable and magnificent day!

    Wonderful day with Elena and 4 other fellow travelers. I really liked the freedom of having time to explore each area on our own -- so it didn't feel like a traditional tour. Also a fabulous lunch at a small agriturismo farm outside of San Gimignano-- some of the best food I've eaten in Italy!

    I was in a group of 4 ladies and we were lucky enough to be the only ones on the trip so had plenty of attention from our guide. Our day was perfect, beautiful, clear weather and we enjoyed every minute. Our guide was very knowledgeable and we learnt so much about the picturesque villages we visited. Delicious lunch was served at a local farm and we had plenty of time to ourselves to explore throughout the day. Would thoroughly recommend this trip!
