What You Can Expect
Fabulous day trip even allowing for the inclement weather. Very interesting with lots to see and do. Marella our guide was knowledge and her presentation of the information made it easy to listen to her. The attention we received was greatly appreciated. Recommend this day trip.
Our tour was fabulous we were the only guests that day and our guide Sylvia provided us with a day we will never forget. The drive through the Tuscan hills is a memory we will never forget.... San gimignano and volterre are absolute gems that we would have missed if we had not decided to take the tour. They are so historic and beautiful .... Our lunch at the Tuscan farm of Carmella and family was the highlight of the day . The food . The wine and the scenery were spectacular , this family produces saffron and it was fascinating to learn about this expensive spice. Carmella used the spice in her cooking that day and everything was fabulous. They are rightfully proud of this organic farm they call home
It is impossible to describe the beauty of this area.... One has to see it for oneself and I think a small tour is the best way to experience the besuty of the area
If you are lucky enough to have Sylvia for your guide all the better.
A great eight hour adventure in Tuscany. We were very luck to have the tour all to ourselves. Had enough time explore both hill towns and a wonderful lunch at a private farm house overlooking Tuscany. Like being in a movie. I would recommend to anyone.
Elena was a fantastic guide. Warm and friendly personality and great knowledge about the sites!
Our guide, Marella, was outstanding! Her knowledge was incredible and her enthusiasm for what she was sharing with us was infectious. The lunch included was a highlight, the host couple were amazing and the food beautiful. The alabaster workshop was also a highlight and the artisan very talented, it is a shame that the skill is not being handed down. The 3 towns visited, Monteriggioni, San Gimignano and Volterra were each interesting in there own right. What a great day!
This was a wonderful tour. Our group of 4 were educated and entertained by a charming guide. The locations were incredible and the meal at the farm house was one of the highlights of our entire trip to Italy. Would highly recommend this tour and will definitely use Viator again for sightseeing!
As usual this Viator managed tour was excellent.Guide spoke excellent English.My opinion of Viator remains high after many experiences.
What a wonderful day. Every minute of our tour was special. There were only four of us and two guides. What a day. Everything outlined in the advertisement was actually what you got and more. I could not recommend it more as it was a perfect day in Tuscany. Bob. Gerringong, Australia
San Gimignano was lovely, Volterra alabaster tour was interesting and the lunch was superb. Our guide was also fantastic. So it was a great day all round.
This trip far exceeded my expectations. It was my favorite day of my time in Italy. Our tour guide was informative and engaging and we spent the right amount of time in each of the Tuscan Hill towns we visited. The lunch at the organic farm was wonderful. I would highly recommend this trip to anyone traveling to this area.
