We bought our tickets online. We had them with us when we arrived. They told us they sold too many and we would get our money back. As we were getting ready to leave tour director yelled at us they had two cancellations so we could go. First thing the bus heater would not work and they had to repair it at the first stop. We weren’t given much of a guide. Just dropped of and told to meet back at a certain time. Guide was nice but not a lot of help.

The start of the trip was a bit chaotic making sure we were on the right bus. Some people were left behind and we had to go back for them. Siena and San Gimignano were magical cities. We would have liked to have spent more time in each but there was not enough time as we still had to get to Pisa. Lunch was okay. Overall I would recommend this trip as a good intro to each city. Go back and explore the one you like latter.

The tour was good, because in one day you will visit main highlights of Tuscany. Were comforter shoes because it's alot of walking. At Gimignano and Pisa, the bus stops a little far from the entrance. Due to alot of waliking, i will not recommend this tour in the summer when it is hotter. Guide was very freindly and heplful. At Chianti winery I expected a tour through the winery and grapes field which was not the case. You will go their just for lunch and they will surf you 3 different wine for you to taste.

The tour overall was good. Bus could not get close to the attractions so it required lots of uphill and uneven walking. Hard for older folks. Lunch was mediocre.

This tour fit a very specific need for us in being able to see Siena, Sam Gimignano, a winery, and Pisa all in a succint way. However, I left Siena and Sam G. wishing we had way more time in each city (and skipped Pisa altogether, but I'd been there prior and knew it's a very brief stop). Thankful for a good whetting of the appetite for Tuscany, for sure.

BEYOND DISAPPOINTING

My husband and I had been looking forward to this excursion. It was horrible! Sienna was crowded and hot and not interesting. As another reviewer stated, the tour guide and local guide 'abandon' you at the cathedral, and you're expected to get back on your own. Three of our families were almost left as they got lost. They really will leave you! The vineyard/restaurant was such a beautiful location, but they were overwhelmed with 2 tour groups. Very little wine and food. Disappointing pasta with almost no sauce... San Gimignano was fun but the hill was so steep we didn't make it to the square - just shopped at the cute shops going up. Was so upset before getting to Pisa we didn't even bother to do that excursion. The language barrier was awful. Couldn't understand the local guide at Sienna at all; and the tour guide wasn't helpful at all. She let a situation regarding seating on the bus get so out of hand, that my husband and I had no seats on the bus after lunch, and she did not make the rude girls who took our seats get up even though we had left personal items there. It was embarrassing and humiliating to me as we were made to look like the bad guys. Just awful !! Just ruined our trip to the point that we cancelled our excursion for today - which means that we lost $150.... I hate to write bad reviews like this, but I would NEVER recommend this excursion to anyone!!!!

Tour was great. Only issue no room in the van. Very tight little leg room. Tour director was comical, but failed to move and circulate the folk on the bus so that everyone could get a good view. Would of liked more time in positana
