Fantastic wine tasting with a great host, San GIamiano was well worth a visit and would have spent more time there rather than going to the first stop at the castle which was a disappointing tourist trap. The wine tasting was very relaxed andnot rushed think we stayed near an hour later than planned.
The tour was really relaxing and fun. I can and #39;t remember the name of our guide but she was very nice and informative. It was very organized, minus the slight delay of the guide and the bus arriving due to traffic and so we had trouble finding the exact place to wait since there was no guide to meet us.
This was an absolutely amazing tour. There were only 5 people so we rode in a nice comfortable van. Our guide Stephan was very nice and knowledgeable. We started with a stop for cheese tasting then on to San Gimignano. We had plenty of time to see the town and have some gelato. Then on to wine tasting in Chianti where Milla took good care of us. We tried several wines paired with a great spread of food. We had a blast!
Great guide. Visited one retail outlet for a winery bought one bottle!, then had time to walk the main street in San Gimignano spelling?, then a wonderful light lunch and wine tastings in a beautiful Tuscan winery. We bought over 200 Euros of product. Guess that says it all. Highly recommended!
Excellent way to spend an afternoon touring the beautiful Tuscan scenery and experiencing some fabulous wine!

The tour was excellent with lots of free time to explore on our own. The wine tasting was great and very informative with no pressure to buy any wine. Our guide Giovanni was very good he spend time explaining the history and area information and gave us background information on the Italian family traditions and way of life. I would highly recommend this tour from Siena.
Knowledgable guide, beautiful surroundings, great food, completely magical.
WOW! great Chianti, Brunello and Super Tuscan wine! Had fun time at San Gimignano, very friendly and the country side was lovely
This was an amazing trip and if I visited Tuscany again I would probably do it again. Our guide was lovely and our bus mega comfortable and the route perfectly planned. The highlight was the final wine tasting whic I had not expected to take long but was amazing. The location superb the wine delicious along with the other offerings and delivered in a very entertaining manner. We laughed so much but also learnt so ugh and tasted some of the best wine ever. If you have any doubts about this trip so long as you can cope with walking uphill at each venue you will have a day to remember.
It was a very successful experience. Congratulations organization. Tuscany is wonderful
What a fun trip. Our guide, Daniel, was very knowledgeable and San Gimignano is beautiful. We had 1.5 hrs there, which was enough for us it was raining a little and then we went on to the wine tasting, which was so much fun. Yes we got tipsy, but hey we weren't driving. The beauty of taking a tour
Oh, the visit to the winery was awesome. Wine tasting was a lot of fun. Going to San Gimignano was like visiting a place out of this world. The walled village, colourful shops, its tall towers with its unending flights of stairs, its famous gelatos......... you wouldn't want the trip to end. A must trip for everyone visiting Siena.
Fantastic tour, excellent value for money. Loved the wine tasting we were given informative talk on the different wines and got to sample them all, along with being provided delicious finger food. Beautiful winery. Also loved San Gimignano, excellently preserved village, probably best we visited.
It was a wonderful experience! The tour was about 5 hours and it started with Monteriggioni, then wine tasting and at the end San Gimignano. The guide give us a lot of information on the region and the towns we visited.
The only thing we would have preferred was to stay more in San Gimignano we stayed only 1h.
Great tour! Knowledgable tour guide and the best part was I traveled in the off season and was the only one so I recieved a private tour. My tour guide was flexible and gave me plenty of time to take pictures, shop and explore the areas. Highly recommend this tour. I was in italy for three weeks and this was my best tour!
Love this tour for the reason which it gives flexibility for your to explore San Gimignano together with a winery visit. As it's a half day tour, it best fits my tight schedule at siena, which let me to do some sightseeing in the morning. Like the winery visit!
This was a great tour and a great way to get into Tuscany without having to drive yourself into the countryside. There were 3 stops on this trip–the small village of Monteriggioni, San Gimigiano, and Tenuta Torciano Winery. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and shared a lot of great info about the two small towns without it being an overkill (or otherwise boring us to death) and gave us time in each town to explore on our own. I loved being free to roam as I pleased and not having to wait for anyone :) We had about 30 minutes in Monteriggioni, just enough time to walk around the village and up on the walls to take photos of picturesque Tuscany! Trust me, you don't need more than 30 minutes, plus there are two other stops on this tour! We had about an hour in San Gimigiano, which again was plenty of time to grab the World's Best Ice Cream and sit and enjoy the view (again a FABULOUS view of the countryside!). Our last stop was at the winery where we had 8 different tastings (5 wines, 3 oils) along with food to accompany it. Our tasting was guided by one of the family members that owns the farm. I learned so much about wine, pairings, and tastings that I will forever remember and apply in real life! Our host was hilarious to top it all off, and that plus the wine meant that everyone was having a ball! I highly recommend this tour if you want to see more of this gorgeous region but don't want to rent a car.
Brilliant trip. Francesco was great: funny and informative. The content of the trip was better than expected. I would definitely book this trip again but go for the full day one next time
Our guide, Francesco was very knowledgeable and interesting. We even stopped for a fantastic view over the valley when when we were going up to San Gimignano. The wine tasting was a lovely ending to the trip. We even bought some and they are sending it on to us. A lovely relaxed way to view the Chianti region.
This was a good tour. The wine tasting was definitely the highlight. San Gimignano was such a cool town, and we only had 50 minutes to tour it, which seemed so short for such a great city! The tour guide wasn't very talkative during the bus trips, which made it a tad long/boring at those times, but overall a great wine tasting that ended with some wines being shipped home :)
