The best tour in Europe. Our guide was incredible. We got to visit the small towns. The Vineyard was beautiful and food was delicious. They gave us enough time to explore. Would definitely recommend if you want to see the countryside in Italy.
The amount of things you got to see during this tour was amazing in itself, but Sandra our tour guide put it over the edge and made it one of the best days in Italy. We did several other tours but Sandra was the most personable and tailored each tour to the group's needs.
I would honestly give her 10 stars if possible.
Everyone do this tour
Excellent tour well worth doing.our tour guide was terrific and made the dayear. Winery lunch was great and Pisa visit spot on
Wow what a great tour, who wouldn't enjoy lunch at a Tuscan Winery overlooking the beautiful Tuscan countryside, not to mention stop offs in Siena, San Gimignano and Pisa. Big day but well worth it.
This is value for money, if staying in Florence without own transport... a way to see Tuscany in One day, albeit just the tip of the iceberg. Whilst I could have spent days in Siena and especially San Gimignano, this trip gives interesting insight into both and allows some free time which is impressive given it is a fully scheduled day. The vineyard lunch was lovely and great winetastings. The day is well structured and very organised. Olivia gave excellent commentaries where appropriate and Francesco was a skilled and careful driver. All staff were welcoming and professional. I also pre-booked the Pisa Belltower climb which I think was worth it. Although we got there just at sunset being winter trip, it was still atmospheric. Thank you Walkabout Tours, great day. Definitely recommend.
The directions to meet our tour guide were perfect. This was my families favorite day our 13 day stay in Italy. If you have enough time when staying in Florence, I would highly recommend it. But most outstanding was our guide Gloria. She was brilliant in her ability to meet the needs of a diverse group . She conveyed an ideal amount of information and tips during the tour. The vineyard where we had a wine tasting and had lunch was awesome. We even sent some wine home. We would have liked to spend a little more time over lunch, but we understood there was lots more to see during the afternoon. It would have been difficult to try to arrange a visit like this on your own.
Outstanding tour and a must do. You really get to see a lot of the countryside but you also experience the Italian lifestyle and food. Our tour guide was very passionate and full of knowledge, she was a local and her enthusiasm really made the day. A big highlight was the lunch at the farm, very traditional and a great experience. I highly recommend this tour.

Fantastic tour, which was very well versed, covered a lot of scenic beauty, history and fun for the whole family. Involved a lot of walking to old historical places, so better wear comfortable shoes.
Outstanding guide by name LAVINA, who kept us occupied all through the 12 hours tour with facts, stories, history and humor. She really made the difference for me to rate this tour to a full 5 out of 5 stars.
The only sort of negative was the lunch, where i was a bit disappointed, as i expected more taste from the countryside food.
My wife and I went on two different day-tours led by Walkabout Florence/Viator. The tour guides were knowledgeable and informative thank you Francesco cinque terre, Giada cinque terre and Alessandro Tuscany. They were hospitable, attentive and ensure that all the tour participants were cared for.
If you cannot find time to travel to these area on your own, I would recommend you to join the tours led by them.
Tour guide Lavvy was fantastic and we went to her hometown of San Gimigiano. A long day but beautiful scenery, architecture. Highly recommend
Liza our tour guide was very kind and knowledgeble... best tour tour and best view ever!
We really enjoyed this tour, despite having a boring drive around Pisa at the end. I would think about dropping Pisa and having more time available for the towns. The lunch at the farm was fun.
This is an excellent tour which we enjoyed very much. The tour guide, Elisa, is very knowledgeable. Her communication skills are excellent and the narration is very nice. We loved this tour.
IT was FANTASTIC tour. It was the best part of my tour.
I highly recommend to everybody.
If you are going to Florence for 3 or 4 days, I highly recommend this tour. Our guide Elisa was really nice during the day and extremely knowledgeable. Everything was well planned and timing was perfect. You will walk Siena, San Gigminiano and Pisa. Lunch was really nice in a farm where you can also buy olive oil and wines. My wife and I were very pleased with this tour. Thanks to Elisa and the driver which I don't remember the name.
I really enjoyed the whole day. The itinerary was good and the lunch was excellent location, food, wine, and service. The tour company was well organized. I was travelling alone and met some nice people to socialize with throughout the day. The tour packs a lot into one day and so a few of the locations I would have liked to have had more time for viewing or shopping etc. I would have liked more time at Pisa. Pre-purchasing the ticket to go up the Tower of Pisa with this tour was the best decision I made because there was not time to buy a ticket on site not if you wanted to go to toilet and had to stand in line to buy a ticket for the tower as well. Only a handful of the group had purchased this extra. This stop we had time for a brief wander around, wait in line for the toilets pay for use, then stand in line for the Tower. Security inspection prior to entry. They allowed NO hand baggage, not even small pouch bags. They allowed cameras and tablets in your hand. If you have a bag you have to go to a different area to check your bag. Our tour guide made sure we were looked after re: bags checked, tickets and security check. We had time to go up the Tower, have a look around from the top, take photos and then just about ran down the Tower steps and ran to the bus to catch it on time. It was worth it but I had shin splints for a week after the brisk journey down those marble steps! Not suitable for those with mobility problems the steps are worn, uneven and you are on a big spiral staircase which is also leaning wickedly! Cool! Or actually hot I went at high season, in July 2016 so there were crowds of tourists everywhere and it was really, really hot. Important to keep hydrated but also be aware of availability of toilets. For those whose age or health requires be prepared for being able to access toilets perhaps every 2 hours at most. No toilets on any buses that I was on. Also, lots of walking including up and down inclines/hills on cobblestones. It is important to have the time/watch/phone so that you get to meeting places on time. Highlights for me were the top of the Tower of Pisa and a really excellent lunch experience.

This was the coolest trip. Totally worth it. The guide was fantastic and was the optimal pace with both teen and young kids. Elisa was great throughout and Siena and San Gimignano are beautiful must see places in the Tuscsan landscape, Only thing - they could arrange for a slightly better local guide in Siena.
My sister and I enjoyed everything on this tour. From the food, places visited, company and especially the guide. We highly recommend this tour.

This tour was GREAT! It was an excellent way to see the Tuscan countryside and visit several Tuscan towns in a day. Our guide, Gloria, was amazing -- personable, knowledgeable and passionate. Lunch at the vineyard was even more than I had expected with an incredible breathtaking view. I highly recommend this tour!
Olivia our guide and Marco our driver were great! There was a bit of hiccup in the morning as we tried to leave Florence but because the marathon was on, all the roads were closed. Olivia and Marco handled it well and informed us of all the steps they were taking. Because we didn't leave on time, the tour was extended. No problem for all of the customers.
Olivia was a perfect guide. And Marco the perfect driver. We definitely recommend this tour.
