THIS WAS ONE OF OUR MOST AMAZING DAYS IN ITALY!!!!! We are four friends 40s-50s. We initially considered doing this trip as a group tour, but decided to pay a little extra for the private experience. WELL WORTH EVERY PENNY!!!!
We were picked up by our private driver, Marco, who was ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!! He picked us up at our airbnb in Florence. He was prompt, polite, efficient and couldn't do enough to make sure we had a super day. We first went to Sienna. We loved all these medieval towns! Totally cool place to visit. Then we went to the La Podere Marronaia Winery for the lunch experience. We walked in and I heard all the noisy group tours eating their lunch on the lower levels. Marco whisked us away from the noisy crowds and took us upstairs to a sort of penthouse room. We had a private room with a table set for us with open farmhouse windows on the most beautiful day with breathtaking views of San Gimignano and the Vineyard. Once we were in the private room, we couldn't have been happier that we upgraded to the private experience. It was 40 euros per person for the lunch and wine/olive oil/balsamic vinegar tastings. The food was delicious bruschetta of different flavors, cured meats and olives, pasta and TONS OF WINE!!!! Everything was just scrumptious. We were served biscotti with dessert wine afterwards. We had the most wonderful waiter, Corrado, and he introduced us to his beautiful mother, Sylvia. We all left feeling like old friends and we ordered many goodies which would ship to the US for free. It was quite an experience for 40 euros a piece. When lunch had ended, Marco took us to San Gimignano, which was another cool town.
We just loved everything about this experience -- our awesome driver, Marco, the cool towns of Siena and San Gimignano and the upgraded experience at the winery. WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS TOUR!!! YOU WON'T REGRET IT
Great day in Tuscany! Paolo was so knowledgable gave us a whole history of the area as we were driving. Extremely accommodating, as our plans kept changing about which areas we wanted to visit. Mercedes Van, very comfortable .
Highly recommend !
Best tour ever!! Marco was amazing and totally treated us like royalty! We had the best lunch at Marronaia!! Thank you!!
Private tour was very flexible in changing itinerary. Left later at 2:00pm instead of 9am and was able to visit San Gimignano first followed by Siena. This allowed us to have dinner at Siena. Our guide / driver was Marco who was very helpful and great throughout the tour.
Great to leave the hustle and bustle of Florence and have a quiet day in Seina and San Gimignano complete with an optional stop at a local winery. We had a wine tasting and a delicious lunch. Marco, our driver, was informative and a pleasure to spend te day with. Worth every penny!
