  • Our tour guide Gloria is AMAZING! She made the trip so special and extremely fun. Gloria is knowledgeable of all areas and sites that we visited and her facts were so interesting. It was one of the best tours I've ever taken! I would definitely take another tour with Gloria and Ricardo the driver. They make such a good team!

  • Beautiful trip and wonderful guide Elisa!! Be prepared to walk both up and down hill!!

  • Elisa was the absolute BEST!!! I am so glad we took this day trip through Tuscany! Small group, great food, wonderful stories about the area, and Elisa was very accommodating, knowledgeable, and funny!!

  • Angela was a great tour guide and so friendly and patient. Be prepared for a lot of walking but you get to see all the highlights of Tuscany. The lunch at the organic farm was fantastic and the views to die for. Absolutely recommend this tour.

  • We met our tour guide Elisa and after a short walk we boarded our bus. The bus was nice and comfortable but did not have a restroom. Our first stop on the tour was the city of Siena where we went the Piazza del Campo and then toured the cathedral, skip the line! After some free time to roam the city we met with our group and headed to our next stop. The winding Tuscan roads led us to a vineyard where after a short tour of the winemaking facilities and history presentation we were seated for a wine tasting and lunch. We sat outside overlooking the beautiful Tuscan countryside. Lunch consisted of three wines, one white, two Chianti, bread, olive oil, balsamic vinegar, cheeses, salami, and a pasta dish. After lunch we made are way to San Gimignano, a hilltop city known for its many towers. Ample free time is given to explore this beautiful gem, taking in the amazing views of the surrounding countryside whilst enjoying the ancient architecture. Pisa was the last stop on the tour. Short walk took us from the bus to the walled complex that contained the cathedral, baptistery and the famous leaning tower. We purchased the tour option to climb the Leaning Tower of Pisa and were not disappointed. We entered at the allotted time and did not have to wait. The last leg of our journey was 45 minute ride back to Florence. Both our tour guide Elisa and the bus driver whose name we did not record were great. Elisa was professional, friendly and very knowledgeable. She spoke nearly the whole time we were on the bus, providing interesting facts and historical background on the region. If you are prone to motion sickness be prepared, the Tuscan roads are narrow and winding. My wife had motion sickness but still considers this tour one of the best days we spent in Italy. We HIGHLY recommend this tour.

  • We took several tours in Florence and Rome through different companies and this one was our favorite. Olivia was our tour guide and was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable, friendly, and paid attention to details. The 12 hour day flew by and we enjoyed every minute. I probably won't comment on our other tours because I usually don't take the time to write reviews. However, this one had to be written because the tour company Walk About Florence was superb in the way everything was handled. I can't remember the bus driver's name, but he was great, too. We highly recommend this tour!!!!!
