An enjoyable day escaping the hustle and bustle of Rome for the lush countryside. Our guide had a good sense of humour and made the day very enjoyable. A highlight was definitely the farm lunch and wine tasting.
Although it was a rainy and miserable day, Tuscany was still beautiful and the tour guide did a great job keeping the mood up. It was done by City Wonders and tour guide was knowledgeable and enthusiastic of the city/location. The lunch was FANTASTIC! 3 course meal w/ 5 different wine tastings....it was sooo good. We got to explore Monticello and Pienza and it was beautiful and gorgeous. This is a long day but well worth it! The 3 course meal was ham/chz/soup for appetizer, pasta for lunch, and sweets for dessert! yum!
this was a well designed day out into a superb countryside, including time in delightful hill towns, an excellent lunch in a winery and some genuine Gregorian chanting by real monks.
We have toured many countries and Lindy was one of the best tour guides we have ever had. We had a delightful day in Tuscany, learned much, tasted wonderful wines, and saw beautiful landscapes. Lindy enhanced our experience with her great personality, excellent command of the English language,and knowledge of her subject matter. Thank you for a wonderful time.
The tour was informative and most enjoyable. The guide on the bus obviously enjoyed his job so he enthusiastically shared information and during lunch guided us through the wine sampling so that even us wine novices felt included. The lunch was most enjoyable too The hosts at the winery served a rustic style lunch which was delicious, paid special attention to setting the table attractively which, for me, added to the enjoyment of the day. The medieval town guide proudly related some interesting historical facts about the town and the surrounding districts. All in all everyone seemed to enjoy their day - I didn't hear one grizzle. My only complaint - I bought a beautiful pair of locally made, soft, black leather boots --- er I didn't really budge on that. But they were irresistable!
Well done! Tour guide Gio was super knowledgeable and was easy to understand. She answered all of our questions and then some. We had a wonderful day in Tuscany. We would highly recommend this tour.
Peter was an amazing tour guide and helped us make the best of a bad weather day. All aspects of the trip were great especially the abbey and the dinner at the winery. I do agree with other reviewers that pienza was not as interesting as montepulciano and would have liked more time in montepulciano.
Anna did a great job and this was a beautiful and amazing trip.
This tour was really nice! The long drive is worth it. The views of Tuscany were phenomenal. If you get motion sickness easily this may not be for you because the drive up the mountains can get to you a little bit. The tour starts early and you actually don't eat until later in the day so I recommend a snack before the tour. Our tour guide was fantastic, she taught us so much about Rome and all regions of Italy. We were able to see the Monks pray and that was really nice. The lunch at the winery was fantastic and the wine was out of this world. If you are looking to get stunning photos of Tuscany pick this tour!
Good Value! Lovely tour with excellent English speaking hostess.
excellent, found it very enjoyable great sights and lunch was outstanding, the guide had a great way about her and was very helpful
Overall it was a great tour! We were very lucky to escape the rain in Rome by having Pete as our tour guide and Stefania show us around in Montepulciano - which was a lovely city! I agree with some of the reviews regarding wanting more time in Montepulciano, and the walking required to see this city. The lunch was amazingly delicious with plenty of wine to taste. Pete was also great and explained a lot of the history behind everything. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to relax and enjoy the fine wine that Tuscany has to offer!
The tour was great, Gia our guide was fantastic. It was a long day but well worth the time. The wine tasting and lunch were great as was the surprise stops Gia had for us as well. Gia was personable and knowledgeable and made the whole day a truly terrific experience. A must for a day trip from Rome.
It is not possible to exaggerate Tuscany’s allure.
It was our good fortune to have signed up for the Day in Tuscany on October 15. The weather was beautiful, the group was small and cordial and Peter was our chaperone.
Although native Italian, Peter studied in the States and his English was flawless. He was also well-versed on Tuscany, living in Rome and his commentary was delivered with good humor.
The experience was well-thought out and our only regret is that our time in Montepulciano, Montalcini and Pienza were all too short. The lunch at the winery was a great idea and a very nice “break” in the very busy day. The time expense of the visit to the monastery was considerable and, while interesting, we would have rather had more time in the three cities.
Overall, it was time and money well spent and a great introduction to the Tuscan region.
This was a great tour. We saw two great villages and had lunch and wine at a vineyard. There is a drive out and once you get there the roads are small and winding, so if you get car sick at all sit at the front of the bus.
This Tuscany Tour was wonderful. Our guide was very enjoyable and personable and 100% helpful.
Delighted that we were able to have a great experience. The only thing that would make it perfect would be a nearby hotel pick-up instead of making our own way
Syriana was the best tour guide i've ever been with in Europe! she's just great! So informative, friendly and funny. and so helpful as well. So was Olivia who always had an answer for everything I asked about during our tour in Tuscany. This tour is a must with great tour guides. Highly recommended. Specially for those who love green landscape, and natural food (the launch at the farm was great).
Our guide for the day was terrific, full of information and so funny. Our first stop was beautiful Montepulciano where we had a 1 hour walking tour with a local guide Julia, she was great. Our next stop was Montalciano where we had the opportunity to see a beautiful monk ceremony and a small temple. Right after we headed to lunch, that was a really amazing experience certainty the best lunch experience I had my whole trip. After lunch we took a short drive to Pienza for a short time of shopping before heading back to Rome. This was a great tour with a great tour guide. I’ll do it again!!!!
Tuscany was outstanding and really enjoyed the day. Our tour guides were exceptional, smart and funny and very knowledgeable. I would highly recommend this tour. And thanks once again to the tour guides.
