What You Can Expect
After arriving, explore the medieval town at your own speed. Stroll along the ancient pilgrimage trail of Via Francigena, check out the architecture in Piazza del Duomo or browse the artisan pottery and crafts in the local shops.
Then reunite with your guide and journey to the Chianti region, celebrated for its world-class wine and stunning landscape. Take a winery tour, exploring the vineyards, bottling rooms and cellars of a Tuscan estate.
After learning about the production process, treat your palette to an array of reds and whites, noting the distinct characteristics of each. A selection of traditional Tuscan snacks, such as local cheeses, bruschetta or cured meats, will complement your tastings.
After five hours of sightseeing and fine wine, your tour will conclude with transportation back to Siena.
Great guide. Visited one retail outlet for a winery bought one bottle!, then had time to walk the main street in San Gimignano spelling?, then a wonderful light lunch and wine tastings in a beautiful Tuscan winery. We bought over 200 Euros of product. Guess that says it all. Highly recommended!
Excellent way to spend an afternoon touring the beautiful Tuscan scenery and experiencing some fabulous wine!

The tour was excellent with lots of free time to explore on our own. The wine tasting was great and very informative with no pressure to buy any wine. Our guide Giovanni was very good he spend time explaining the history and area information and gave us background information on the Italian family traditions and way of life. I would highly recommend this tour from Siena.
Knowledgable guide, beautiful surroundings, great food, completely magical.
WOW! great Chianti, Brunello and Super Tuscan wine! Had fun time at San Gimignano, very friendly and the country side was lovely
Wonderful trip. Margherita, our guide, was very informative.
This was an amazing trip and if I visited Tuscany again I would probably do it again. Our guide was lovely and our bus mega comfortable and the route perfectly planned. The highlight was the final wine tasting whic I had not expected to take long but was amazing. The location superb the wine delicious along with the other offerings and delivered in a very entertaining manner. We laughed so much but also learnt so ugh and tasted some of the best wine ever. If you have any doubts about this trip so long as you can cope with walking uphill at each venue you will have a day to remember.
It was a very successful experience. Congratulations organization. Tuscany is wonderful
What a fun trip. Our guide, Daniel, was very knowledgeable and San Gimignano is beautiful. We had 1.5 hrs there, which was enough for us it was raining a little and then we went on to the wine tasting, which was so much fun. Yes we got tipsy, but hey we weren't driving. The beauty of taking a tour
Oh, the visit to the winery was awesome. Wine tasting was a lot of fun. Going to San Gimignano was like visiting a place out of this world. The walled village, colourful shops, its tall towers with its unending flights of stairs, its famous gelatos......... you wouldn't want the trip to end. A must trip for everyone visiting Siena.
