Good tour if you would like to get a taste of some other parts of Italy Sienna is a must!. It was warm the day we did the tour, so make sure you are prepared for the heat! Our tour guide, Valerie, was friendly and informative. Enjoyable day.
Great day trip incorporating the best that Sienna, Greve and San Gimignano have to offer. Both our guides were engaging and knowledgeable and the pace was just right for all the tour participants
San Gimignano was scenic, but totally geared for tourists. Siena was spectacular very scenic and local guide instrumental in relaying local history. Greve was great. And local wine tasting/winery was great. Suggestion would be to skip San Gimignano and spend more time in Siana, Greve, and local winery, or replace San Gimignano with another city. But, excellent trip all in all. Highly recommended
Wondeful guide and wondeful cities, great art and history.
The wine excellent and a lot of fun the wine tadting in a beautifu place

A wonderful tour! We went first to San Gimignano and then to Siena where we had lunch not included
Siena is so beautiful, even under the rain! We had a tour guide that explained ot us about the districts and rivals and about the Pailo races.
We then went to a winery and tasted several wines, chesse and salami and they tought us a lot about wine. We then went to a small town called Greve, a fairitail town with the odest butcher chop in europe. The tour was great! Even under the rain, don't worry, the rain is light and stop and go!
Our guide was excellent, she was very informative and would definitely recommend the trip to others going to Florence.
Excellent day. Our guide, Lisa, was very good and explained things very well. Our local guide in Sienna, Cecilia, was most informative and paced the walking very well to suit the group. A long day but worth the time. Thank you.
Wonderful tour. The guide was excelent and the itinerary was well programmed. The only thing i regret is not beeing able to visit the Siena Cathedral .
Exceptionally good value for the money. The highlight of our first trip to Florence. Cannot believe how much was packed into the day. There is no way we would have managed to see and experience everything that was included in the tour. The tour guide and arrangements throughout was first class and we all fell in love with San Gimignano which was something like out of a film set! Siena was also amazing and we were taken to places that were certainly off the main tourist routes. All in all a magical day and one that all our family will certainly not forget for a long while. Would have no hesitation in recommending this tour - worth every penny!!!
Great way to see the ancient towns. Martel was a great guide and it wasn't hard to find the bus stop near the train station. We got about an hour to explore San Gimignano which isn't hard - it's quite small. As Martel recommended, it's better to visit the fort for the views than climb the towers. After all, better to get pics of the towers than pics from the towers. Siena was much larger and we had much more time there. The square where the Palio takes place is amazing. We had time to get lunch and walk around and then got a walking tour and we got some great views of Siena on the walk. The day ended with a visit to a winery through a very scenic area and after a short stop in Greve, we headed back to Florence.
Cette excursion est très bien organisée. Notre guide dans le car et celle à Sienne étaient parfaites. Elles parlaient un français impeccable. Notre guide à Sienne nous a parlé de sa ville avec beaucoup de détails historiques. C'était une visite très intéressante. Les deux petits villages visités en Toscane étaient typiques et très dépaysant. Je recommande cette excursion.
Fabulous day, well paced and enjoyable. I would have loved a little more time in San Gimignano.
The tour was excellent! The guides were wonderful and clearly enjoy doing what they do. The trip was extremely organized and ran very smoothly. We did a lot in one day and it was truly memorable!!
A wonderful experience. Our tour guide in Siena was engaging, she made the tour come to life. Sa Gimignano is beautiful. You need to be prepared to walk, a lot. Wear comfortable thick soled shoes. The uneven stones and inclines are numerous. The wine tasting was very informative. You will know all about Chianti when you are done. Highly recommended. Have fun.
Expire the pouring rain all day, this was a superb tour. The coach guide was absolutely fantastic, he never tired of telling us bits of information all along the route, spoke perfect English and Spanish. The walking guide in Siena was also passionate about her city and the wine tasting was a treat!
Would highly recommend this trip.
I simply cannot say enough about the quality, value, and excellence of this tour. Our tour guide Keyko was superb. She was lively, cheerful, entertaining, and interested in us as well as the points of interest on the tour. She had accurate descriptions of the city that we were passing as we were leaving. She explained what the day would be like and gave us details all along the way. Our first stop in San Gimignano was perfect. Keyko took us to the very top of the city for an amazing view. She gave us options and opportunities to do what interested us the most. As we boarded the bus for Siena, she explained what the tour of that city would be like. She then offered us options for lunch and told us when to meet our local guide. The local guide Maria was phenomenal. She truly loved her city and exposed us to many places that were off the paths and not available to most tourists. As we boarded the bus for our stop at a winery, we saw the beautiful rolling landscape of Tuscany. The winery stop consisted of plentiful 'tastings' of wine, explanation of the wine, and some delicious local salami and cheeses. We then boarded the bus for a stop at Greve. Even though it was low season and later in the day, the town still welcome us and the quaintness of it was heartwarming. We then boarded our bus for our trip back to Florence where Keyko gave us dinner suggestions and even walked us to some excellent restaurants. Our bus driver Franco was an excellent driver, making us feel very safe and well taken care of. All in all, one amazing day!
The visit to these two towns was super. They were charming and steeped in history. We had a delightful day. Touring accommodations were great.
We had been to both places before many years ago. The tours showed and taught us more than we remembered. A good way to go.
Wonderful day and tour...highly recommend this excursion!!!!
Very relaxing. An enchanting town, environment and history.
