This tour of San Gimignano and Siena was fantastic. Antoinette (sp?) was a wonderful host. We had a beautiful day, after two rainy days in Rome. The six of us on the tour hit it off immediately. We were picked up at our hotel in rome at 6:15am, as scheduled. Lunch and wine tasting were perfect. This was our first trip to Italy. We would certainly like to come back to Tuscany and spend more time among the vineyards and olive trees. I initially hesitated in booking this tour, because it is pricey. But we enjoyed every minute of it; well worth the cost.
We enjoyed our day trip with Fabiana (tour guide) and Adam (driver). They picked us up at our Airbnb and commenced upon a beautiful drive through the countryside to Siena. Fabiana took us through the church with its remarkable inlaid marble floor and explained the history of the church and provided details about the artifacts. We then had a private wine tasting and lunch at a winery with nine (!) separate tastings. We next drove to San Gimignano where Fabiana escorted us around. Fabiana paid a lot of attention to us and even gave us suggestions for restaurants in Rome and Naples. Adam was an excellent driver.
This trip was exactly what I was hoping for. Visiting medieval Villages and then off to the vineyard.
The food was amazing ! The best lasagna I ever tasted with their truffle oil. The food kept coming paired with their wines were absolutely amazing. All the people were friendly and very good at keeping everyone on the trip engaged and satisfied
Absolutely the highlight of the trip. Our guide Antoinette was great and our driver Adam were funny together. The cities were beautiful and the trip to the winery well worth it. Highly recommend this trip. Small group is the way to go.
Great tour to two of the most beautiful villages in Tuscany. The driver was very safe and the guide was super informative. She allowed shopping along the tour. I would highly recommend this tour to get a taste of the wine country.
What a wonderful day tour of rural Italy, the beautiful city of Sienna, a revisit to SanGimignano and a delightful visit to a winery where we ate and drank as the Italians do! Our tour guide quickly established a friendly relationship and was very informative and open to our requests for the day. The driver was excellent. I would certainly recommend this tour and use the company again.
