A most enjoyable day which was made all the better by Luca who was an outstanding guide. Would recommend this trip to anybody.

Luca was a wonderful guide and driver! He made reservations in a very nice, reasonably priced restaurant for us for lunch, and we all enjoyed our meals. His grasp of history and the information on the "sights" was wonderful. We enjoyed being in a small group and we met lovely people. We would recommend this tour!

A nice day trip from Florence. San Gimignano was my favorite stop. It is not really a guided trip as the driver drops you off outside of town and picks you up at the appointed time.

Mauro our driver was very friendly and answered all our questions. Perhaps I had not read the details but I had expected more of a guided trip - the driver would tell us a little about the three places we were visiting on the way there, but then left us at the town gates to see the town on our own.

This tour gave us a good surround of Toscany from Florence. The minivan was clean and comfortable. Our guide, Marcello, was pleasent, talked a lot on the road and gave us several informations about the 3 towns visited and the Toscany. We had enough times in each town to see the major buildings of each one. This tour is recommended if you want to see a good part of Toscany, but without a concentration on only one city (you will not have time to visit everything in Sienna our in San Gimignano, but enough for one or two important buildings).

We enjoyed this day. There were five in the group and the tour guide was helpful. We left early in the morning and the towns were not too crowded. I had time to buy boots!

We loved seeing both Siena and San Gimignano. The small group tour was definitely a plus since there were two families of 3 (total of 6) that made it much easier to concentrate on what was of most interest to us without dealing with a large crowd. The only thing that keeps this from being a 5 is that our tour guide, while charming and witty, seemed disengaged from that group at times. But he was very patient and flexible in allowing us to spend more time in one place and less in another. Shopping is great in both places and better prices than Florence! This is a great way to get a feeling for Tuscany.

Depending on what you are after, this tour may or may not be for you, but it suited us great. It's a small group and there ended up only being four of us.

Our tour guide wasn't really a tour guide, more of a glorified chauffeur. He wasn't able to give us specific information on each town but provided us with information about the regions and what products they specialized in. He also made sure to come into each town with us and show us where we could get more information and get us the appropriate information booklets. After he did that, he would leave us to explore the town and do what we wanted on our own time, which we liked as each person wanted to do their own thing. He was really friendly and chatty and we enjoyed his company as he told us entertaining stories which made the drive shorter.

He was very flexible - some groups usually agree to spend more time in Siena and San Gimignano and pass on Monterogionni. We chose to have a shorter time in all three to which he happily obliged.

While I didn't really notice, my husband thought his driving was a little alarming, however, observing other cars we believe it might be the norm in Italy!

On the whole, had a great time!

Good tour however it was raining on the day and very difficult to see much of what was on offer.

A most enjoyable tour, with beautiful views of the Tuscan countryside, especially from San Gimignano, which in itself was a stunning place to visit. Would have preferred to find our own lunch venue in Siena, but the food at the restaurant we were taken to was good and reasonably priced. Would recommend this tour to friends.
