Why Travellers Choose This Tour

This top-rated Tuscany tour features the option to skip the long line at Pisa’s Leaning Tower.

Board your coach in Florence, and travel into the hills of Tuscany where the city of Siena awaits. Opt to take a guided tour of the city with a visit to Siena Cathedral to admire its renowned Gothic architecture. Or, make the most of some free time to set your own pace, and perhaps enjoy a coffee in the sun alongside the locals.

From Siena, return to the Tuscan countryside to explore the Chianti wine region. Stretch your legs with a stroll through a vineyard, olive grove and wine cellar, and refuel with a Tuscan winery lunch. As you sit surrounded by the grape vines, meet other visitors to the area and indulge in local treats such as cold cuts of meat, salad, pasta and fresh bread. Even better, a wine tasting takes place at the same time.

After lunch, journey onward to San Gimignano with its medieval towers, cobbled streets and squares. Explore the town’s historic center, cool down with a refreshing gelato and wander amid the 14 towers as you learn about their history.

Travel from San Gimignano to Pisa: your final stop of the day. Follow your guide to Cathedral Square to discover Pisa Duomo, Pisa Baptistry, the monumental cemetery (aka Camposanto) and, of course, the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Return to Florence in the early evening, and finish your Tuscany tour with a drop-off at the start point.

Lavinia was excellent and gave local information delivered in an interesting style, Anna Lisa also gave local information not found in books. This trip was good value for money, lunch was great, enjoyable meeting other tourists and they accommodated dietary needs of the coelac. Would have liked a bit longer in the Siena Duomo

My expectations were totally met for this Tuscany day tour. Our tour guide and driver (Olivia and Francesco) made this an unforgettable experience. I will definitely recommend this tour in the future.

Great, full day tour exploring the Tuscan sights. Elisa was informative, interesting and fun the whole day! Great tour from the local guide in Siena. Fun, family style lunch at a beautiful farm/vineyard. Definitely recommend for anyone wanting to see the sights of Tuscany without the hassle of driving yourself!!

Gloria was our guide for the day, and was very knowledgeable and helpful. We had a lovely time. The lunch was amazing, at an organic winery. The staff was welcoming and kind. Our driver, Ricardo was fabulous on those twisting mountain roads.

The whole day was fantastic but the organic lunch at the winery near San Gimignano was the best. Delicious food, amazing views and plentiful wine. Olivia was our guide and was charming and informative. In Siena we had Alicia, who was s local so she knew everything about her city. Pisa was slightly disappointing but that was not the fault of the tour...there's just not much there but the basilica and the tower. Overall a great day. Would recommend if you only have one day to see the Tuscan highlights.

We took this yesterday and it was great. Walkabout Tours did a great job. Our guide Oliva did a great job. She was very informative and also did a great job keeping everyone on time. Our bus had children about 10 yrs old to teenagers, singles, couples and older couples. Our first stop was Sienna with a guided tour of the city and Cathedral. Next was lunch and wine tasting at a farm. The lunch served was excellent. Up next, was San G. Free time to explore this tiny town. This was my favorite stop. Pisa was next. We arrived at sunset but it was still beautiful. The field of miracles holds the baptistry, cathedral and tower. There is an option to climb the tower but we did not do this. This makes for a very long day and you walk a lot. But it is worth it. We would do this trip again
