This was such a long day out. First stop to San Gimignano was brief but nice to see this little village with beautiful views. Then off to Siena. Our guide was amazing, the town is full of traditions and beautiful little streets wish i could go back again and we had a lovely lunch not included in the price so you go off on your own for 1 hour. Then on our way back to Florence we stopped at a vineyard... again beautiful views and friendly people but we did not like the wine testing but that's our personal taste! We felt a bit pressured to buy a few bottles which we did not but felt uncomfortable about it. It was nice but as the day was so long we wished we would have not got to the vineyard. Overall a fab day out with beautiful sceneries of Tuscani. Coach was clean and comfortable and the guide tried hard
Our guide was amazing. We learned a lot about the wines and history of the region. The tour was very informative and picturesque.
Everything was well planned and times along the tour were just perfect! I now have an idea of each place and would definitely will go back to each city and spend more time.
Nice day spent. our tour guide Matteo was amazing.
Great tour guide, wonderful sites, highly recommend
Outstanding trip of these two amazing cities. If your in Florence, don't pass this one up!
Thoroughly enjoyed this trip. Our local guide in San Gimignana Paul was very knowledgeable and entertaining. All stops were well worth the time and gave us a different aspect to this area. Would recommend this trip.
This was a wonderful day trip that took us through beautiful Tuscan countryside. Our very knowledgeable tour guide on our bus trip out pointed out sights as we moved out of Florence into the Tuscan countryside and shared history and traditions involving the Florence/Siena rivalry and history. Our first stop was the medieval hilltop town of San Gimignano, and I do mean hilltop. We enjoyed exploring the beautiful medieval town on our own -- the shops, the church, as well as a delightful opportunity to enjoy a cafe and delicious pastry on the square. Siena, was our next stop where after some free time and we met up with a very informative local guide who shared Siena's history, including the district horse racing extraganza, she took us to visit a contrada museum, churches, and much more. Greve in Chianti was next and finally a wine tasting at a private local winery as the sun was setting before boarding the bus to return to Florence. All in all a very worthwhile trip.
Excellent trip and excellent tour guide,whose name escapes me at this moment. Thoroughly enjoyable
This was an excellent tour. The guide in Siena was so knowledgeable and entertaining. She was well organized with her stories following the flow of our path through the city. Both Siena and San Gimignano were incredible to see and would be difficult to do as a day trip on your own using the bus and train. We know, we looked. I was thinking that it might be too much to try to add Greve in as well for the wine tasting, but I was wrong. It was a great addition to the trip. We were so glad that we ended up doing this tour. On our next visit to Italy we are going to try to stay in Siena and Greve for a few days. It was love at first sight with regards to these two cities in Toscana! Ciao!
