I was in Rome for a week and was looking for a day trip to break up my time in Rome and the Tuscany tour was perfect. The online booking process was simple and fast, I received my vouchers by email within minutes of making the purchase and Viator was great to keep sending reminders and follow up vouchers as my tour date approached. The tour itself was wonderful. Our guide, Erica, was fantastic and charming. Spoke perfect english and met us all at the meeting place with a smile and was very organized. The bus was very comfortable, with reclining seats, personal reading lights and personal A/C vents at each seat. Plenty of storage space above our seats for items we purchased during the tour. Erica was very knowledgeable and shared a lot of trivia and facts as we drove. The local tour guides in each place visited were also friendly, knowledgeable and spoke perfect english. The pace of the tours were perfect, not too fast that we could not stop to take pictures or even break away for a few minutes to buy a gift and still catch up with the tour, but also not so slow that the day dragged on. The afternoon lunch at the country vineyard and winery was amazing. Food was outstanding and the wine was amazing. If you happen to take the tour in Sept, you will even get to see and taste grapes right off the vine. An unexpected surprise was the visit in the country to a church where we got to sit and listen to Monks do their daily chants...it was some of the most beautiful sounds I have ever heard. All in all the tour was well worth the money and I would highly recommend it. The pick up and drop off location was centrally located in the heart of Rome. We made many friends on the tour and everyone was like a big group of old friends by the end of the day. Thank you Erica - you were amazing and made the trip easy and enjoyable. Ciao.
Delightful guide, very personable, knowledgable, informative and well organized. Would be nice if arrangements could be made to coordinate taxis upon return for those who need them. Was impossible to find a cab in August and a very long walk to our hotel - fortunately we had guessed right and headed in the right direction.

Our guide was wonderful, making us very comfortable, and extremely accommodating. It was my wife's birthday, and the guide made her feel special. The guides sence of humor made the day even more enjoyable.
We took this tour on a sunny day in July. Every aspect of the tour was enjoyable- except for perhaps the late start due to a late-comer! Our tour guide, Peter, was enthusiastic and knew everything there was to know about Roman history as well as wine-making and everything in-between. The bus was comfortable and the company was great. We were treated to a tour of a couple of towns and a wonderful lunch at a winery. The balance of time spent in transit and on-site was just right. I would (and already have) recommended this tour to others.
Good tour. It would have been nice if the description outlined the fact that there was a 3 hr bus trip (each way).
Excellent tour to see much of Toscana in a day. Peter (tour guide) was super knowledgeable and easy to hang out with for the day. Found myself quoting some of the things he said later in my trip! Must be good if I retained some facts! Good wine, nice to see a couple towns in tuscany and landscape.
Everything was perfect. the guide, the food, the place, the wine...
A Tuscany day trip from Rome worth every penny. Guide Violet was extremely knowledgeable and very friendly. Would highly recommend.
The tour was fantastic. Tour guide was very nice. Her facts were a bit off but mostly she was good. It was the best part of our trip. We will do it again in a heartbeat.
This was a great tour. The country side was beautiful. Our lunch at the local winery was great and very "Italian". The visit to the monastery to hear the monks sing was very moving. This trip is well worth taking just to see the beautiful land and learn the history of the region.
It was an excellent tour from some of the most beautiful parts of Tuscany that we missed in 2011.
We truly enjoyed Montepulciano and pienza. The hill top towns, vineyards, Cyprus trees, houses built with stone looked like a beautiful painting that you want to look at it for hours. Lunch at the winery and wine tasting was an amazing experience . What a beautiful place.
Above all we travel a lot and have been on many tours. We have never, ever seen a tour guide(Peter)
who is so knowledgeable and takes so much time to explain all historical facts and social issues in such a very pleasant and interesting way. We think he was exceptional and has a gift to do what he is doing. Take care of him and value his service to your clients. We highly recommend this tour, Sherry and Barry
