  • Amazing trip and absolute money value. A long trip, but packed with interesting things to see and taste. We were really tired at the end, but really satisfied with beautiful Tuscany countryside, ancient towns and delicious wines.

  • Tour guide Edward was fantastic. He was super knowledgable, lively, and kind. We really enjoyed having him as our host for the tour. This trip was perfect for our needs. We only had a few days in Florence and really wanted to visit more of Tuscany. This trip allowed us to see Pienza, Montepulciano, and Montalcino. For those expecting to spend a long time in each of those towns, please note this is not the tour for you. Packing 3 towns into one day is a feat, one this tour covers well, but you will feel rushed. We had under an hour in Pienza, for example. The tours of the two wineries though, especially the on in Montalcino, made the tour. They were generous with the wine tastings and the accompanying food. And you learned a lot. I'd recommend this tour if you want to get a taste of Southern Tuscany accompanied with a guide who really knows his stuff!

  • Totalling 12 hours, this trip left us with exhausted smiles on our faces. Our guide Fabio was professional, run everything smoothly and had a good command of English. The towns we visited were beautiful and the local produce is excellent. And I will always smile when I remember the owner of the first winery, Mario.

  • Beautiful tour!! Really recomend it.

  • This was a large group tour to three Tuscan towns which included two wine tastings. The towns visited were Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano. The tour director, Sylvia, was knowledgeable and pleasant and spoke 6 languages! Slightly disappointing was that no time was spent in Montepulciano other than for the wine tasting. It was informative and held in an Etruscan underground in Montepulciano but no time was left to see the town, which I had been hoping to do as part of the tour. Also, with the Tuscan sunflowers in full bloom it would have been nice to stop for a photo op somewhere along the way. Otherwise, it was a good value for the price however next time I might opt for a small group tour at higher cost.

  • Great tour to see Montepulciano, Montalcino and Pienza in the heart of the Val D'Orcia. Absolutely knockout scenery and home of great Italian red wines. Our tour was early May, 2017 and the major tourist season was just around the corner and the weather was not near to the heat levels of summer. The tour director was very well informed and easy to understand. Stops were good, but not great. Wine- tasting time was a bit rushed. Overall a good value. This is an all day tour. One complaint is that the tour start and finish were spent sitting too long on the bus waiting. Viator could do some work on this shortcoming.

  • It was an enjoyable trip through the beautiful Tuscan cities. The wine tasting was a very fun experience too.

  • So much fun and very informative. Loved driving through the countryside too.

    Not to mention the delicious wine tastings and inexpensive price of the wine when bought at vineyard.

  • We were extremely pleased with toy and the excellent guide,Edwardo.

  • A long day - 12 hours - but this enabled us to enjoy seeing the lovely Tuscan countryside and to visit three pretty towns: Montecino, Prienza and Montepulciano. We were collected at exactly the predicted time from our hotel. The coach was probably the most comfortable we have ever travelled in and the driver was excellent. Our Guide was also very good - informative and a good command of English. She ensured everything ran to schedule. The second wine tasting was much better than the first where the wines were disappointing. Overall, a really good day out and good value for money.
