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.

I will recommend this tour to anyone who wants to visit Tuscany in 1 day. It certainly shows the highlights of that area.

Gloria did a great job of bringing the Tuscan countryside to life. The rolling hills, vineyards, and fields of sunflowers make the countryside landscape the most pictureques I've seen. I fell in love with the Tuscan hills and the small quaint villages we visited along the way. This was a geat tour and I highly recommend this as a great way to see all that the countryside has to offer. We had a wonderful lunch at a beautiful wineary where we enjoyed floor to cieling windows looking out into the rolling hills and vineyards. Don't miss this trip!

the tour was extremely well organized - with 4 stops en route it was a long day. Amazingly, the tour returned to its starting point within about 5 minutes of the projected end time. The tour guide, Olivia, was terrific and presented information in a very knowledgeable way. She managed the tour very effectively. The time allowed at the various stops were appropriate and the split between guided tour and free time tour was good. I would highly recommend this tour as a very effective way of getting a flavor of Tuscany, The stop for lunch at the vineyard was wonderful. The lunch, unlike many tour lunches, was delicious, and the hosts were welcoming and hospitable.

Our tour was hosted by Olivia who could not have done a better job. She was extremely sensitive to the needs of our group and truly seemed motivated to make our day in Tuscany the best that it could be and she delivered on that. The stops on the tour were planned very thoughtfully. We did wish we had a little longer to purchase some things at the winery after finishing our delicious lunch. It was a great deal overall. The sights were beautiful and we so enjoyed getting to know people from all over the world. Thank you Olivia. You are truly the best!!

The tour was great and lots to see in one day. Siena, Winery Lunch, San Gimignano and Pisa all worthwhile.
Our tour guide was extremely informative and attentive throughout the day. Would highly recommend this tour if you are in Florence for a short time and want to get a feel for the Tuscan region.

Antonella was a fantastic guide - we really appreciated her local knowledge and history explanations. The train and video were lovely touches.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2015

Our guide Antonella was fantastic! Friendly and informative - she even gave us help on many other related issues with our stay in Tuscany. The tour was very interesting and gave us a wonderful taste of Tuscany. Obvious we couldn't spend enough time in each place but this gave us a great overview of many places to visit in the future. Even the travelling between the towns was an important part of the tour as the scenery was amazing! The venue for lunch was also wonderful and the food for lunch was delicious. The tour doesn't include real wine tasting but actually tasting or drinking some wines during the lunch - this for me was excellent as we didn't lose valuable time but enjoyed the wines with the meal. All in all...a wonderful day out! Thank you to Walkabout the tour operator and especially to Antonella!
