Wine Tasting & Tuscany Countryside including San Gimignano & Volterra | 1 2020
We had an amazing time with Marco! He picked us up at the port where our cruise ship came in and from the start was very friendly and informative. Our drive through the Tuscan countryside was nothing short of spectacular; great views everywhere you looked. We stopped at a small coffee shop on the way to the winery, just to get out and appreciate the views (and have an espresso, of course). When we were ready, Marco took us to the winery where we sampled about 10 different wines, their olive oils, and a small snack plate (sausage slices, bread, and a small salad). I think we were at the winery for around an hour or hour and a half, which was just about perfect; we didn't feel rushed at all. When we were ready to leave, Marco drove us to San Gimignano where he showed us around and then let us wander the town for 90 minutes or so. Then off to Volterra for the same pattern. On the way back to our cruise ship, Marco answered all of our questions about the area and we had a nice conversation.
Overall, I can't recommend this highly enough. Marco was just about the best tour guide we could have asked for, the countryside was outstanding, and we thoroughly enjoyed our time at the winery and in both towns. We'd definitely do this again!…さらに表示
