Board your coach in Florence, and travel into the hills of Tuscany where the city of Siena awaits. Opt to take a guided tour of the city with a visit to Siena Cathedral to admire its renowned Gothic architecture. Or, make the most of some free time to set your own pace, and perhaps enjoy a coffee in the sun alongside the locals.
From Siena, return to the Tuscan countryside to explore the Chianti wine region. Stretch your legs with a stroll through a vineyard, olive grove and wine cellar, and refuel with a Tuscan winery lunch. As you sit surrounded by the grape vines, meet other visitors to the area and indulge in local treats such as cold cuts of meat, salad, pasta and fresh bread. Even better, a wine tasting takes place at the same time.
After lunch, journey onward to San Gimignano with its medieval towers, cobbled streets and squares. Explore the town’s historic center, cool down with a refreshing gelato and wander amid the 14 towers as you learn about their history.
Travel from San Gimignano to Pisa: your final stop of the day. Follow your guide to Cathedral Square to discover Pisa Duomo, Pisa Baptistry, the monumental cemetery (aka Camposanto) and, of course, the Leaning Tower of Pisa.
Return to Florence in the early evening, and finish your Tuscany tour with a drop-off at the start point.
This tour was amazing!
It was amazing experience. Loved the way the tour was structured and all the places that we visited as part of the tour. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and kept us entertained most of the time. Best tour to see both Tuscan countryside and see leaning tower of Pisa in a day. Also the food included in the package was good quality and of course the wines accompanying the same!
This is the best tour we've ever taken. Elisa was a warm, talented guide who was easy to listen and informative. We loved all 4 stops on the tour and would have trouble picking a favorite.
This was a nice overview of the places visited, but I certainly wouldn't say that it was a thorough visit. We certainly enjoyed our tour, and Elisa was WONDERFUL, but we do wish we had been able to enjoy more time in these locations. This is why I say it's a nice overview. Also, it was a nice way to see the places without having our own transportation. The lunch at the farm was tasty, and seconds were offered. When we visited, the weather was AMAZING, so I would have loved to have been able to sit in the grass and enjoy a glass or two more of wine, but I understand that this wasn't the purpose of the tour. Lots of activity was packed into the day, and we enjoyed it. If you're looking for a relaxing, enjoyable day, this wouldn't be for you. I would book again.
Great tour, especially the guides (both on the bus and during the walking tour of Sienna). Definitely recommend. Lunch at the farm with wine was great too.
Packed schedule but entirely enjoyable! The places visited were awesome. I will visit them again. The tour guide was fabulous.

Sandra was an amazing guide actually works for Walk About who Viator outsourced this tour. She spoke great English, knew all her stuff, was funny and really cared that we got our money's worth. Lot's of walking and this was nearly 8 hours...so be ready for a GREAT long day.
Walkabout Tours did an incredible job at organising the day. From the first time we met our guide Eliza outside the train station in the early morning to the time we were dropped off in the evening, Eliza was friendly, always smiling, funny and extremely knowledgeable. The tour to Sienna where we had a separate guide was really good as well. We got to visit places which we wouldn't have seen if we hadn't gone on this tour. San Gimignano was another stop which my friend and I really enjoyed. Even though it was absolutely freezing that day with strong winds/rain/hail/snow, the countryside was absolutely beautiful! Lunch was on a farm and it was simple, but food was cooked well and they offered second helpings to people who wanted more. We also had 4 different wines with lunch which were really nice. From there, we went to the town and had quite a bit of time to explore on our own. Most of the shops were closed as it was Winter but there were enough open so my friend and I could still buy a few food items and souvenirs. Pisa was our next stop where we arrived as the sun was going down. I think only 2 people chose to climb the tower. The rest of us just wandered around and took photos, and then we were on our way back to Florence! It was a long day, but organised well and our guide Eliza was outstanding! She kept us entertained all the time and was extremely informative. I would highly recommend this tour.
