Un tour de un día completo, que le llevará a las bellezas clave del centro de la Toscana. Paseará por los espectaculares paisajes hasta llegar a la joya de Siena, con su singular plaza y ayuntamiento gótico. A continuación, se dirigirá a San Gimignano, la Nueva York medieval, y Monteriggioni, un castillo en lo alto de una colina con impresionantes vistas. Pero ahí no acaba todo. Terminará su visita con una bodega de Chianti donde saboreará el mejor de los vinos italianos. Se trata de un día perfecto para relajarse y reponer su espíritu.
Excelente, los lugares visitados son increíbles, la guía muy preparada nos hizo atractiva una visita hablando en inglés, español, alemán e italiano, abierta a responder todas las preguntas y muy buena para aconsejar otras actividades. La guía local en Siena, también muy buena, 100 en español. Tuvimos incluido un gelato por la mañana en San Gimignano y tuvimos la posibilidad de comprar un almuerzo muy económico en Siena.
Finalmente, destaco la degustación de vinos, que estuvo muy interesante y tuvimos la posibilidad de probar todos los vinos que quisiéramos y luego comprar los que quisiéramos a precios interesantes.
This tour was an amazing day tour, we got to discover this little village called Monteriggioni, then we went to Siena, which I found to be the most amazing city its history was mind blowing. From there we went to a winery had a wine tasting and then went to San Gimignano, a small town full of charm and breathtaking views. I recommend this day tour it was great!
The ticketing and on boarding process was very good. The tour guide on the bus was excellent. After that it went down hill. When they say the tour is Spanish and English, I thought that meant it was available in either language. Instead, our guide first spoke in one language then repeated it in the other language, meaning that he could not point out things of interest due to need to translate. On arrival to Monteriggioni we were told the bus would park 15 minute walk away. Would have been good to know that ahead of time since my 80 year old mother in law was with us. Only having 30 minutes did not give enough time to explore and shop in this beautiful setting so most of the family had to rush through to see the city because they had stopped to shop. Could have easily spent an hour in the village looking around. Next stop was Siena where we again had to park a 10 minute walk away from town. We had a guide in town but if I just look at what the guide showed us I would think that Siena is just a medieval plaza and a church when there was so much more to it from what I have read. Lunch was the worst meal I have had in the 16 days I have spent in Italy and was on par with the average Italian restaurant in the US. The wine served was not palatable to most of the people at our section of the table although others did drink 1-2 glasses of wine. The tour in San Gimignano was nice, again an uphill walk to town but seemed that we had enough time to get a taste of this village (could probably spend a day there). The wine tasting was horrible. I am huge fan of Italian wines, especially Tuscan wines but the wine served at the tasting does a disservice to anyone not familiar with these wonderful wines. Visiting a newly developing vineyard would be great if we could have gone elsewhere to taste the wines of Tuscany but as the only real tasting it was a huge disappointment. I will not do this tour and cannot recommend that anyone take this tour without changes.
It was a pleasant walking tour and the guide was entertaining. However the group size was too big. Lunch was a bit of a mess as the restaurant could not cope with the crowds. We ended walking up and down the restaurant floors 3 times before we were settled down to lunch with another group. Fortunately the other tourists were very friendly and we had a good dialogue with them over lunch.
Passeio inesquecível pela Toscana, bem diversificado. Dos problemas que tivemos, o maior de todos foi o ponto de encontro para embarque no ônibus que foi informado errado. Erro absurdo que por muito pouco não me fez perder o passeio. Por sorte consegui localizar o local correto e ninguém da companhia de turismo sabia de nada sobre esse fato. Incrivel... Outra mentira foi a venda do tour em português, Apesar do guia Gabriel ser brasileiro, o passeio não foi todo em português como contratado. Em diversos momentos eram passadas informações em inglês e espanhol, mas quando era a vez do português sempre faltava algo. Em Siena não tinha visita guiada em português também... enfim. As paisagens são maravilhosas, mas eu não indico essa companhia de turismo.
Great locations, but really needed maps for pickup locations and getting around, especially when late at night /in the dark. Warn people with mobility about walking long distances and up steep hills. We battled a bad storm, but there were no emergency information or back-up plan.
This was a convenient way to see several sights without having to participate in exhausting and often generic tours. We had ample time to freely move about on our own and experience the sights according to our interests. Beautiful day to boot! Wine tasting was a fun ending to a great day.
