My Review

We were greeted by a friendly British gentlemen at the tour office and came our lovely guide Luana who took the group of 5 on the trip. It was one of the smallest tour groups I ever had and it was good as we didnt need to waste time waiting to congregate a larger group.
We all hopped into the van and we headed out to Monserrat. I felt safe in her good driving skills. I enjoyed Monserrat but just that we didnt have that much time to do all the things we could see as we needed to catch our next stop at the Cava visit. I managed to take the tramride up to the top where the view was simply spectacular. There was a couple of treks where we could take but I needed to get back to the Bascilica to catch the boys' choir sing. Lunch was a quick one as I wanted to bring home some local produce of Monserrat. At abt 2pm, we had to leave Monserrat to the winery. To my amazement, I was impressed by this visit where we had the opportunity to visit the storage area of the Cava wineries. Our host was just fantastic with a good sense of humour and extremely charming in his well fitted suit. He escorted us throughout explaining and riding in a tram 27m below the ground was also quite an experience! We enjoyed both tours and also made some good purchase of true Spanish Sparkling wines. I would recommend this tour.

My Review

It was a nicely organised trip. I happened to have Chris, the young American Italian who is so attentive to everyone's need. A good way to see some country side to Siena and Pisa. It would be nice if they had a 2 days tour where a little more time could be spent at each place. But on the whole, a well invested time and money, we have enjoyed it and would recommend this tour.

My Review

It is good to have a tour guide to explain the most memorising works of art or you would be roaming aimlessly in the museums. We had Frederrico as our guide, very informative and thorough in his explanation, though some found it too boring (probably not art enthusiasts). It is good to sign up for an advance tour as the queue is crazy at these 2 places.
