What a lovely day we had! There were only 8 of us and the tour of Siena was wonderful. I would have liked a little more time in San Gimignano. Our dinner was just fabulous - the food and the experience! Highly recommend!

This tour was a must see! Our driver was very friendly and professional. The town of Sienna was beautiful and rich with history. Our tour guide was very personable and full of information. San Gimignano was also a quint town. Unfortunately it rained while we were there so I don't feel we got the flavor of that town. Speaking of flavor, the Chianti Dinner and wine tasting was fantastic! Delicious food and wine pairings. Bring your appetite and pace yourself! Highly recommend!

This is a very interesting tour with many interesting sites to visit. Siena is a very beautiful town and we have lucky to be there at the preparation day of the Palio di Siena horse race that is held twice each year, on 2 July and 16 August. This atmosphere on the day was really electrifying. I am sure it will even be 10X more electrifying on the actual day itself :- . Be ready for the walk in Siena though. It is quite hilly. San Gimignano is a smaller town than expected but still offer a nice place to visit. The dinner at the end of the tour was a simple one but the wine tasting was great. The dinner also offered the chance to have nice decent amount of chat with different nationalities. Overall it was a nice tour.

Great tour, meal, and wines. I would have missed Siena otherwise. Ordered wines from the winery that showed up no problem as promised. A really great extension to a stay in Florence.

Very nice tour to explore 2 of the best towns in Tuscany! The walking tour in Siena was really good with a local guide and you can hear about the contrade history and then have free time in San Giminiano followed by a dinner in Chianti which was super good! Big portions (appetizers, pasta, meat and dessert!) and lot of wine. Totally recommend if you have only one afternoon to explore the Tuscan countryside!

Christian was a great guide and gave us good insight into the wine region of Tuscany. The history of Siena was provided through the experience of a local resident.

This was an excellent tour. We enjoyed the smaller groups. Christian and Matteop were our tour guides, and they made the tour very enjoyable. They had a real passion for what they were doing, and provided many interesting details along the way. The drive through Tuscany was beautiful. San Gimanano and Siena were beautiful cities. Each had a different feel. The best part was the evening Chianti Dinner. the setting was at a winery with a beautiful view for miles you could see Florence. We had a fun group of people. They served a complete dinner with wine, appetizers, multiple courses, and after dinner desert and drinks. Very beautiful and fun!.

It was a small group of 8 of us on this tour. We had a lovely dinner at a great restaurant with different wine pairings for every course. I also enjoyed exploring Siena and San Gimignano. Our tour guide, Christian, was also very helpful and knowledgeable. Highly recommend this trip!

This was a FABULOUS trip. We were on an 11 day cruise with excursions every day, and this trip while we were staying in Florence after the cruise was a delight. Go and see Siena!

I had a great experience on this tour and would highly recommend it. The small-group nature of the trip was really great and helped me get a deep understanding and appreciation. Our driver was Matteo, who was very professional and courteous. He knew a lot about the area and was able to answer a lot of questions. He also spoke during the driving to tell us about certain key points of interest. He was very engaged. Our guide in Siena, Benedetta, was excellent as well. She is from Siena and has a definite passion for the city. She was able to answer a lot of questions and she was able to respond clearly and in depth. She was very pleasant, as was Matteo, and I would certainly go on this tour again.

Our driver, Matteo, and our guide in Siena, Benedetta, were very professional and helpful. Matteo was able to get us safely and comfortably to many places. He also knows a lot about the area and was very helpful in pointing things out to us, and in responding to questions. Benedetta is passionate about Siena and we had a great time with her, as she took us around in the old city. She was able to give us a lot of background information - and had detailed answers to all of our questions.

A delightful way to get out of the busyness of Florence and see a lot in a day! The tour of Siena was great, although it would have been nice to go inside the duomo. San Gimignano is a great little town. The dinner was absolutely wonderful. And our tour guide, Elizieo, was very kind and full of interesting information about the area, history, etc.

Excellent way to explore these beautiful places in Tuscany. Definitely can enjoy a personal experience with the small tour. Particularly impressed with our walking tour and guide in Sienna - 'Benni's' passion for her city was evident. We even saw a beautiful sunset over the hills prior to dinner.

I love the guides, they were fun and very funny, it was sad that the day we went, it was rainy! this is a small private tour to bring you to these awesome places for a very reasonable price! I would Recommend you if for this guide if you are in Florence and want to visit Siena just for a day trip. Since it was raining, the tour sent us to our hotel which was very nice of him to go the extra mile for his customers!
I did this for my honeymoon and my wife and I are happy!

Not only were the drivers who accompanied us - Eliseu and Giacomo - the sweetest people ever, but the guide from Siena was clearly proud of her city. I would have liked a little more time in San Gimignano, and to have known it was a place so cute for shopping, though. The Chianti Dinner: absolutely delicious.

Nice respite from the crowds in Florence. The two towns are great, and we were able to tailor our time there to suit the varied desires of the 8 people in our group. Bad rain hampered or time at the Choant winery, and I would have liked a more educational experience there. But very nice.
