If you are in Florence for a few days do not miss getting out of town to these beautiful towns in Tuscany. Our guide from Florence was knowledgable and very entertaining- multi lingual and could also cater for the Spanish speakers on the tour. In Sienna, our guide was a local who gave a fascinating coverage of how this town is divided into areas, rivalry between areas and between Florence and Sienna as well. Optional is a traditional Tuscan lunch at a restaurant ( in a cellar dating back to 700's!). Highly recommended for the extra 15 euros.Traditional Tuscan bean soup, hand made local pasta, cheese, salamis and plenty on vino!

The tour was wonderful. The tour guide in Siena was very knowledge and took the perfect pace for the people on the tour. And the tour guide that was with us from Florence even offered to make a reservation at a good restaurant where we had a wonderful lunch and got to converse with people from all over the world. Finally, one last unscheduled stop on the way back was made for a free wine tasting that was wonderful.

This was an outstanding tour! My wife and I and 2 adult daughters loved it. Very enjoyable. Tour was well paced to allow enough free time for shopping and eating. Tour guides were professional, very knowledgeable, and made the trip fun. First vacation using Viator and would book with them again.

This was an incredible tour. We were able to see so much of this beautifal part of Italy. Our guide for Siena was very knowledgable and pleasant. San Gimignano was charming. Wish we had more time there.

First class trip, very informative. Tiziana tour leader was very good, I might say excellant. She explained everything in detail all the way. Even Nicoletta the Siena tour leader was very lively, helpfull and very informative. Coach driver was very moderate while driving and the coach was comfortable.

Excellent tour with knowledgable and friendly, professional guides, on the bus and in Siena. The annual chocolate festival in Siena on the day we toured was also a nice surprise. We viewed all the major sights in each city/town and has sufficient time to browse shops, climb towers, and wander about. I would recommend this tour very highly to anyone, young and old.

Since it was February the group was very small (5 participants). The guide, Tiziana, spoke a very good English.
In Siena there is the possibility of a 4-course meal with wine and water for 15€ and I would recommend going up the Torre del Mangia in your free time.
S.G. is very beautiful, too!
