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!
Interestins. Very well organized. Wanderful gides. Beautiful places and good food and wine.
This was an absolutely fantastic tour!!! We drove in comfort, super good tour guides and some time to explore on our own. Dinner and wine after a beautiful sunset. Would highly recommend!!!!

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.
It was one of the best part of our trip to Italy. I am so glad that I booked this tour.
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.
This tour was lovely! Beautiful country and delicious food. Siena was amazing and our guide was knowledgeable about the history of the city. The day went by fast and I would highly recommend this tour.
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.
A lot of fun! Giacomo was great. We would definitely do it again. And bring your appetite there is a lot of food and wine!
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.
Visiting Siena was the highlight of my trip to Italy. It was so neat to learn about the city and its traditions. San Gimignano was very cool to see too. I will forewarn you that the ride in the van is bumpy, especially if you ride in the back.
An Excellent trip to a lovely city, a charming young lady vintner for our wine tasting who joined in the humour that abounded in our small group trip: Ciao Bella
We loved our guide's presentation and knowledge of her home city of Siena! The wine dinner was good, but a little bit rushed. Would liked to have more time between wines and dinner courses. The 30 year balsamic vinegar was great too! A lovely day ending with a gorgeous view of Firenze at night!
If you want to live Siena and taste San Gimignano in one glorious afternoon, then you will enjoy this tour. Lilo's grandmother's homemade lasagna and award-winning wine continue to make me smile!
I have been to Siena and San G before. This time I enjoyed it more. We were 2 couples and the guide, Jocopo. He was a delight, and spoke English well. I don't drink alcohol, but my husband does, so I didn't expect much from the wine tasting. Was I ever wrong! It was the highlight of the tour. I tasted all wine, and was very glad that I did. It was so much fun. The dinner was good, and the gal explaining the wines, etc. was terrific. She was friendly and had a good sense of humor. I definitely recommend this tour.
This was a great excursion but it could have been a whole day trip. Siena and San Gimignano were beautiful but we only had 1 hour in each place. We would have loved to stay longer. The dinner was delicious and we enjoyed getting to know our group. We had a small glitch when we noticed a flat tire prior to leaving but it was quickly resolved and we were on our way.
Friendly tour-guides, well organized. Took us to all the main places. However, the food could have been better.
The tour guides were excellent. Siena was interesting and the walking tour was well done. We enjoyed San Gimignano very much and the time there went by quickly. Dinner was good but not memorable. For that reason, the 4 stars vs. 5.
The tour was generally very good but could have been better. I hope these comments are taken in the spirit in which they are given, to make the experience better for future travelers, at least in my opinion. There could easily be some narrative of the region that could be played during the drive from Florence to Siena. The driver could simply put in a tape or C/D with a description of the region, even if the narrative lasted for only three or four minutes, it would be a helpful orientation. It would be wonderful if the tour included entry into the Duomo in Siena. Luckily, I was there many years ago but my wife missed out on the opportunity to enter the beautiful Church. It would also be helpful to have a map of San Gimignano so we would have some idea of its size and where we were going. We were dumped at an entrance to the walled city and told to be back at a certain time. We were unsure of how far we could wander and felt we had to keep on a safe track so as not to go astray. A simple town map would have been very helpful and prevented some anxiety. With that said, the tour was beautiful, dinner was very enjoyable and were were happy to have done it. It could easily be made even better.
