    Traveler Tips


    Make sure you know exactly where the tour leaves from as signage is poor.
    First stop was San Gimignano, which by itself would be worth the trip.
    The group was small which made it easy to organise everyone and minimised waiting times.

    Great tour including an exceptional lunch and wine tasting
    Reinhard_M, Sep 2022
    Excellent tour guide. Touched on all the bases. We knew it would be a long day but very little time to really explore the stops. Lunch at the winery was exceptional. If there was any negative it would be no masks required on the bus. There were people coughing all around us which made us feel uncomfortable. As in all trains masks are required. We still have 3 weeks left on our vacation and would hate to have it spoiled by those in tight quarters expelling their germs.

    Really fun day!
    Barbara_M, Oct 2022
    We had a great time all day. The tour was more than we expected, well organized and just the right mix of activities and driving through Tuscany. Loved San Gimignano and the visit to the winery. Our tour guide, Assia, was superb!
    Great day trip from Florence!
    Manvi_M, Aug 2022
    San Gimignano and Siena were favorites! Monteriggioni was nice, but it was hike to get up there for only a couple minutes spent there. The wine tasting was a good experience and they were mindful of people with dietary restrictions for the lunch as well! Martha was a great guide and recommend great spots and activities throughout the day!
    Okay but not great.
    Jolene_F, Sep 2022
    It was okay but not great. This provided transportation to where we wanted to go. The tour was in Spanish and English, with all information being repeated in each. The tour started late.

    Tuscany villages
    Arunava_G, Jul 2022
    San Gimingnano.. but given very less time. Monteriggioni was a waste of time. Sienna should be given more time. San Gimingnano and Sienna alongwith wine tasting and lunch should be covered in one day's package. A souvenir from viator or the wine factory would have been a customer delight

    Rent a car instead
    Carol_P, Oct 2022
    We had 2 “guides”. The first who was on the bus with us walked very fast and was always rushing. There were people of all ages. I heard many people complaining about this. What was worse was her English. We couldn’t make our her words and couldn’t tell whether she was speaking Spanish or English. We heard other tour guides actually giving explanations is San Gimignano. This one said nothing. Did a speed walk up to a tower. The second guide took us around Siena. I had no earthly idea what she was talking about. Terrible tour. The only good thing was having transportation from to San Gimignano. We were to take another tour. I cancelled it. It was that bad.
    Ancient cities
    Patricia_E, Sep 2022
    A lot of walking on uneven blocks and in and down hill. Good views. However three course lunch was more of a snack
    Great guide and wonderful...
    Nazanin_O, Sep 2022
    Great guide and wonderful experience. We loved and enjoyed it very much. The scenery, the food and wine tasting and the group were great. :)
    A fun day in the Tuscan countryside and Siena
    Rick_P, Sep 2022
    Our Tour guide Vera and bus driver Maximo did a great job. Kept us all together and we saw the sites that were listed. It was a sunny, warm day. People must come ready to walk a ways on cobblestone - uphill and downhill. You should be in reasonable shape otherwise you may be better off in a different tour. The lunch and wine tasting were fun and the man who guided us through their wines had a good sense of humor. The wines were average, so we ordered their most expensive red wine (with there old race horse on it) by the bottle for four of us and that was quite nice 75 Euros. The 1 1/4 hour tour in Siena was well worth the extra cost and included the Duomo. (Which was exquisite!)
    Awesome experience!
    Sandra_W, Sep 2022
    San Gimingnano was extremely important to this tour. It was remarkable! The people were oh so friendly and the walk around the town. We wish we had had longer than 30 minutes. The wine tasting and lunch were terrific . Lots of fun! Siena is captivating, however our guide was not the best; hard to understand and not that excited about our walk around the town. If she had been better you would get a 5 star report from us. Sandy Ward
    Excellent Trip
    Lucy_J, Aug 2022
    The whole tour was excellent including Giordano the guide. The wine tasting and meal were great fun and tasty. The scenic visits were awesome.

    Must do day trip from Florence
    Iain_P, Aug 2022
    We really enjoyed this day trip from Florence. The itinerary is well planned, with just the right amount of time at each stop (all of which are beautiful and definitely worth a visit). The guide was helpful, informative, and fun. The winery lunch was basic but tasty and the host made it entertaining. There was plenty of very good wine, although unfortunately no Vin Santo. The only reason I’m not rating this 5 stars is that it was let down by the optional walking tour in Siena which we joined. The local guide seemed in a hurry and rushed us from landmark to landmark, giving the briefest explanations and never inviting questions. We’d have been better off exploring on our own.
    Great day in Tuscany.
    Scott_M, Sep 2022
    This is a fabulous trip!! Just enough to highlight some gems in Tuscany!! Siena and it’s Cathedral was amazing. Carlo did a great job! Full day, but couldn’t have been shorter. More information is needed for the meeting place. There were multiple tour companies and others had the same colored sticker so it was confusing.
    A MUST-Do Day Trip
    Karen_W, Aug 2022
    This trip was a highlight we loved it from start to finish. Our tour guide Martha was 10/10 and it ran at a great pace we never felt rushed. Would highly recommend 💛
