Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Tuscany in One Day Sightseeing Tour

Meet your local guide before heading for the hills on a scenic drive through the Tuscan countryside. Your first stop for the day is gothic Siena, famous for its medieval streets. Choose to join a guided tour through the city(free entry inside the Cathedral is included). Or, alternatively, you're free to marvel the sights of Siena at your own pace, enjoy a drink in an open air cafe and meet the locals.

Enjoy a stroll among Chianti vineyards, olive groves and wine cellars before indulging in a traditional Tuscan lunch amongst the Sienese hills where Chianti wine is produced. Surrounded by grapes vines you'll have the opportunity to meet fellow travelers while feasting on local foods including cold meats, salads, pasta and bread. A wine-tasting class will be held during lunch including free samples of wine and olive oil (which are also available for purchase).

After lunch you will visit San Gimignano where you can roam the maze of cobbled streets and small squares, grab a gelato and walk between San Gimignano's famous 14 towers. Your final stop is Pisa, where you can take an up-close inspection of The Leaning Tower, view the Cathedral, the Baptistery and monumental Cemetery in Pisa before venturing back to Florence where your full-day tour concludes.

Siena was well worth seeing on foot. Lunch was delicious, and San Gimignano was a picturesque stop. The stop at Pisa could have been shorter. Overall, a wonderfully led tour thanks to our guide, Sandra, who was incredibly energetic and charismatic all day.

Great day. We managed to do so much in one day. The lunch spot was amazing. Olivia was an awesome guide, very knowledgeable and very organize, which helped so we could have a smooth day and enjoy as much time in every destination as possible.

This was an amazing tour with Walkabout Florence. The guide was very knowledgeable, funny, and helpful even for suggestions for dinner spots afterwards. The Siena tour was led by a local guide also knowledgeable with about 40 minutes free time - enough to have a drink at a cafe or shop. This was followed by a really terrific lunch with wine at an organic farm and winery. San Gimignano and Pisa followed all with sufficient time to see the sights. A terrific end to our 14 day trip in Europe.

Went on this tour with my wife and two small children in mid July, 2015. Excellent tour and highly recommended. To start, the tour guide Antonella was AWESOME. Very friendly, knowledgeable and really went beyond her job description to make the experience amazing for everyone. She personally spoke with everyone and made sure everyone was enjoying the day. Big thumbs up to Antonella. The tour itself is very well designed. Comfortable air conditioned bus with lots of room to spare. The itinerary is perfect. You get to experience the beautiful Tuscan countryside while visiting Siena, Pisa and San Gimignano. The highlight of the tour is the lunch stop at an organic wine estate. This is the only tour that visits this estate. Consequently, the estate is not crowded and you receive fantastic personal service during lunch. They even made sure my children were comfortable and enjoying their stay. The food and wine is great and no one rushes you along. The view of San Gimignano from the estate is memorable. You have free time to explore Siena, Pisa and San Gimignano after the tour guide takes you through all the important sites. As an experience traveler, this was one of the best tours I have ever been on. I highly recommended for anyone - single traveler, family with children or senior citizens. 5 stars to Viator and the tour operator.
