I booked a small group tour and thought my husband and I would spend the day with about a dozen other people. To our surprise only one other had person joined us. Our guide met us with a luxury car instead of a mini van. Alessandro Martini was professional, asked about our interests, and did the most to ensure we learned about Tuscany. Both Siena and San Gimingnano were lovely and we had enough time in each. The wine tasting was good too, even if the lunch was a little light. I recommend this tour, especially because of our guide.

We loved our tour guide, Alice! She did a great job leading this tour. It was a very comfortable small bus with only our family of 5 and 3 other travellers. Alice led us on a very interesting walking tour of Siena and we also had a little free time to explore Siena before making our way to San GImignano. We then stopped at a beautiful vineyard just outside of San Gimignano. What a delicious tasting and lunch we had there! We ordered some wine to be shipped directly to our home.
Then we traveled a very short distance to the ancient town of San Gimignano which had towers and winding streets with little shops along the way. We enjoyed some delicious Gelato here. We had free time to explore the beautiful town before heading back to Florence.

We had a wonderful day touring Siena and the beautiful San Gimignano with Stefano and Alice. In addition, the lunch at the winery was delicious!! I would highly recommend this tour. Alice was a very attentive and knowledgeable guide. We especially loved the walking tour of each city and the addition of the history of each site that Alice provided. The intact Medieval city of San Gimignano was unforgettable.

Wonderful day and would highly recommend. Alice and Alessandro were excellent hosts for the day and despite the thunderstorms and hailstones that accompanied us, they made it a superb day.
Siena was beautiful and San Gimignano breathtaking. Lunch and wine tasting was very enjoyable and as there was only 6 of us on the trip, an ideal opportunity for us to get to know each other.

It was a cold March day for our tour, and it had snowed in Tuscany the days before, so we were unsure as to what to expect from the tour. We arrived at the Florence train station, and Stefano and Alyse were there to meet us. It turned out that we were the only ones who hadn't cancelled, so we received a private driver and tour guide for the whole day. Both were great, entertaining and informative. While some of the hills of the two towns were challenging in the slush, the sights were amazing. The lunch and wine tasting at the Marronaia winery was fantastic -- again, just for the two of us, so 6 bottles of wine paired with the locally-sourced food, with a personal explanation of each vintage by a son of the owners. By the end of the trip, it felt like Stefano and Alyse were our friends from college, there to share a day in the countryside with us. Can't rate it high enough.
