Our tour guide Marco was amazing! He picked us up right from our hotel in Siena, on time and in black Mercedes. He not only allows us to explore San Gimignano for some time, he also took us for a quick stop at the Sienese medieval fortress of Monteriggioni. The tasting at Torciano's was fantastic as we were the only couple in the main dining area large tours sit outside in the courtyard or in their larger tasting/cask building and had a single worker spend an entire hour with us talking about the wines, the foods and just chatting. I would very much recommend this tour, especially for the price!
Brilliant, wonderful guide, excellent winery a wonderful experience would do it again!!!
My husband and I were delightfully surprised by how amazing this tour actually was. The tour guide was outstanding!! He was friendly and very knowledgable of the Tuscany region. The tour only included us and another couple, which was a lovely surprise. It made it more personal. This tour is a must!!
We had a great time. The wine tasting event was spectacular. My wife and I fell in love with San Gimignano. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone wanting to visit wine country.
This tour was great! Danny our guide was very knowledgeable about the Siena and San Gimignano area and made for a very enjoyable tour. The wine tasting was excellent. I would highly recommend this tour.
This was a fun tour. We had a couple of hours in San Gimignano which was great. It's a delightful little town that I think you could spend a couple of days enjoying. The wine tasting over lunch was absolutely hilarious. The guy running the wine tasting was a real comedian and had all the groups there laughing most of the time. The wines were very nice and the oils were great. It was just an all-round great experience.
Fantastic tour. The guide was very knowledgeable and entertaining. I would have liked to have more time in San Gimignano (we had about 45 minutes) but the wine tasting was fantastic. They do not skimp on the wine as we each received about 6 glasses. We also got to try a variety of olive oils. The truffle oil was fantastic.
Our tour guide Marco was excellent he made the trip really worthwhile. It was a really wet day and we were pleased to be collected from our accommodation. When we left Siena but by the time we were approaching Sam Gimignano the weather cleared and Marco pulled over to the side of the road for us to take photos. We could have possibly spent more time there as it was market day. The wine tasting was enjoyable, a lovely setting but being from New Zealand we were not into Italian wine. On the whole a great morning out
What a great time we had on this tour! Our guide was full of information and we enjoyed his company! The wine tasting was AMAZING!
I greatly enjoyed the tour and wine tasting. Our driver was very nice and have good information about local sites. I would recommend this to others.
We did this tour on 15 the April. We really enjoyed Daniel's tour, he was very informative about the history of the area. We spent 1.5 hours in San Gimignano then went on to the Winery where we had an excellent education in tasting wine by Ada. There were only 4 of us on the tour which was great for us. Highly recommended
Apparently the driver/tour guide got ill, so they needed to find someone else, which they did pretty quick, because there was only a 30 minutes delay in picking me up at the hotel. They called the hotel and informed me of delay, which I appreciated. The tour itself was very nice. First we drove to San Gimignano (we stopped on the way to take some photo's of the city in the distance - the pics turned out lovely) and had some free time there, then to wine tasting. Wine tasting was nicely organised, we had a table for our group and there were two other groups there. We tasted several of the most famous Toscan wines and had some antipasti. Back to Siena around 14h00.This trip was a good value for money
July 13 2013. Simply awesome. Highly recommended. The tour guide Simone (Simon) was knowledgeable, friendly, thoughtful and witty. The wine tasting experience was amazing, lots of wine bottles to try from, the spread of food with the wine was impressive...a great marketing strategy...we all bought while full and half drunk.... Worth every penny you pay.
Our wine tasting was done very well and the truffle oil was incredible! Our tour to San Gimignano was a must see!
Great tour overall. San Gimignano was so pretty and our guide did a nice job of setting up what we'd see.
The stop at the winery was great. The guide was very entertaining and gave us a great lesson in how to taste wine.
Very good. Our driver was excellent and the vineyard had excellent wine.
Tour was very good and the wine tasting event excellent! Our guide however, did not speak very clear English and it was a continuous struggle to understand and hear him, especially over the rattles of the van.
San Gimignano was amazing, the Wine Tasting was wonderful - for whatever reason our tour did not include a tour of the vineyards or wine cellars as stated however we did enjoy a wine-tasting session, and sampled Vernaccia wine along with several other local wines. The downside of the tour was our van - there was problem with a window which created wind noise making it difficult to hear our guide - impossible for those seated in the back row.
My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed the trip. Our tour guide was excellent and very knowledgable. Enough free time at San Gimignano to explore. Most enjoyable visit to Tenuta Torciano for the wine tasting.
However, on the down side, it was difficult to hear our guide's commentary on the history of the region while he was driving. Obviously, he had to keep his eyes on the road, so it was difficult, especially on the Autostrada (road noise) to pick up exactly what he was saying. It would be very helpful if some sort of intercom or speaker system was fitted to the mini coaches.
This was an awesome trip. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was that I would have liked to have spent some time time in San Gimignano, but our tour was only the half day. Our tour guide, Thomas, was wonderful. He was very informative and took us to a fabulous winery. It was one of the highlights of our time in Italy!
