Excellent but very long day. Didn't have enough to time in the first town as we were running late to see the chanting monks. They were a bit disappointing as only four monks were chanting and were barely audible. They didn't sound anything like their CD. But still was worth the trip. The wine tasting and lunch were also very nice and enjoyable.
Our guide, Kylie, was fantastic! She went above and beyond what she needed to do. A great day!
We thoroughly enjoyed our day trip to Tuscany. The scenery was fantastic, lunch at the winery was delicious and our guide Peter kept us entertained. Hearing the priests chant in the old stone abbey was magical. I wish we would have had a bit more time to shop but I understand we had a schedule to adhere to. All in all, we would definitely recommend this tour.
This tour was absolutely wonderful, and I am sooo very happy that I booked. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone. The country side is beautiful to watch as you journey along the road. During the ride, our tour guide offered all sorts of information and interesting comments along the way. Our stops in the town of Montepuliciano and Montecini were informative and great photo ops. The towns are soo quaint and picturesque that you will find yourself wanting to spend more time there than allowed. Lunch at the winery could not have been more delicious along with the selection of wine that was offered. Do not hesitate for a minute to book this tour.
We did a one day tour to Tuscany. We had Linnie as our tour guide. She was excellent! So nice, and such a wonderful day. We took a tour through Montepulciano, headed to an Abbey where we heard Gregorian Chants, and had a 3-course meal at a Tuscany vineyard with wine pairings. We spent some leisure time in Pienza for shopping. Definitely worth the money!
What a fun tour - lunch in a winery, wonderful scenery, wonderful tour guide, great shopping opportunity -- wonderful day.
Stephanie from City Wonders was the perfect guide for a perfect day in Tuscany. Her knowledge of the UNESCO World Heritage target areas that we visited was incredible. The highlight for us was the old abbey where we were lucky enough to hear the monks during their midday chants. Not sure if this is something that always happens but the abbey and the other towns we stopped in were everything we imagined we'd find in the region. Breathtaking!
Our guide was very knowledgeable and is definitely a people person. Tuscany was beautiful and the towns visited were amazing This is a must when visiting Italy

Great tour, well worth the money. Move time in Montelpulciano, less in Pienza would be great.
Wonderful! The transporation, tour gudie, places visited, lunch served were all outstanding- could not have done it better. Highly reommend this for anyone wnating to viisit Tuscany for the day- it's SO beautiful!
Awesome day in Tuscany. Our tour guide, Peter, was excellent and very knowledgeable of Rome and Tuscany. The bus was very nice and well air-conditioned. The lunch on the farm was excellent and the Gregorian chants in the monastery were surreal. The roads thru Tuscany are a bit windy so if you are susceptible to motion sickness, you may want to take some medication before going on the bus. Highly recommend this tour.
Just spectacular! Booking easy, guide fun and knowledgable. Only an hour and half from Rome, the drive with many stops....food and wine tasting, chanting monks in their abbey, 3 course Italian meal with wine tastings at a vineyard, to walking tours through Pienza, Siena, Tuscany and my favorite...Montepulciano. Under the Tuscan Sun come to life!! Thank you, Viator!!
Outstanding day tour of Tuscany from Rome. Everything from the ease of booking, and organization of the tour group and day, to the spectacular sights, the allotted time given to view each sight, the delicious lunch, and Monica our very sweet, knowledgable tour guide. Perfect!
Although the weather was not good, rained all day, we still enjoyed the trip, mainly due to the excellent guide, Kylie, her knowledge and enthusiasm were exceptional. Would recommend the trip to anyone who has a love of Tuscany.
This was a fantastic tour. Our guide Kilee was so knowledgable and organized. She kept us on track even though there were unavoidable obstacles thrown in her path. We will definitely use this group again when we book our longer stay in Tuscany next year!! Food was great, wine was fantastic and the views were amazing. Great job.
We had such a wonderful time on this Tuscany. Andy was extremely knowledgeable and the winery lunch was fantastic! We would highly recommend this tour.
Amazing -- the lunch at the farm house was outstanding. Our guide was exceptional.
Excellent tour guide. Very personable and knowledgable. Wonderful tour. Lunch at the winery was a visual treat, but the food was only mediocre. I rate this trip and this guide very high.
This tour operator was a local tour company and has an overall rating of more than 4 stars. I wish viator had booked us on more of our tours with this company as opposed to the other company. The bus was comfortable and the time in each place was reasonable. The lunch and wine tasting was amazing. Definitely recommend.
Loved our guide, Kylie from Australia. Very organized. Knowledgeable guide, loved her history and education as we were on the bus. Enjoyed the monks chanting in the monastery and the good lunch with wine. Good meeting point.
A wonderful day that gives you a glimpse of just how beautiful Tuscany really is. Our guide Stefanie was wonderful in making sure the day stayed on schedule as well as engaging and full of interesting information.
