Wow - if I could give more stars, I would! This was definitely the highlight of our trip to Italy across Rome, Venice, Florence, and Siena. Corrado was an amazing guide, and took us through the rolling countryside of southern Tuscany, to small towns I'd only dreamed of. The views were breathtaking, and the farm lunch was so perfectly quaint and yet awe-inspiring the views were unreal! Visiting Pienza and Montepulciano was my dream come true, and I wish I could have spent more time in both beautiful towns. I can honestly say this was one of the top 5 days in my life - it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience, and the tour company took all of the guesswork out of the equation so we could truly relax and enjoy. I cannot recommend this tour enough.

What a fantastic day. Would highly recommend as the small group makes it so nice and personal. We had a great day seeing all the beautiful scenery and a WONDERFUL farm to table lunch in a fantastic spot. Nice to have a bit of free time to shop and walk Pienza as well.

Elena was such a great tour guide. Our pickup was easy, the tour was informative and very interesting in all 3 locations. We stopped in an enchanting small village on the way to Pienza, it was gorgeous. There was enough time to walk about on our own in both Pienza and Montepulciano. The farm to table restaurant we had lunch at was absolutely stunning. I thoroughly recommend this tour to anyone.

Loved this tour, our tour guide Elena was awesome, She was fun, knowledgeable and helpful. We loved the tour of the Tuscan countryside, what gorgeous, picturesque landscapes. We really enjoyed the town of Pienza, the whole town smells of cheese!!! In a good way : After Pienza, we went to an organic farm that made everything we ate and drank, it was delicious! We then went to Montelpulciano for a wine cave tour and a wine tasting. The wine was fantastic, so happy we ordered some!
the whole day was lovely!

Thought the owner/driver who picked us up and took us around was excellent...he was interesting, spoke perfect colloquial English and was ultra-knowledgable, which is refreshing and was well-received by my wife and myself. The tour highlights the two areas, Pienza and Montepulciano, with an amazing, organic lunch on the way and lots of knowledge to soak in. No fluff, all fun. Just right

My husband and I went on this tour on a rainy day last week. Despite the weather, the scenery was beautiful, towns were enchanting and lunch was spectacular. Milo was a great tour guide, giving us interesting information and pointing out fantastic sights.The family who provided us with a delicious, organic lunch were lovely and very warm and welcoming.

A beautiful day in the Tuscan countryside, exploring fascinating villages, walking the cobbled streets. We were well looked after by our guide and our transport was very comfortable. Our day was foggy to start, but the scenery along the way was quite beautiful. Our lunch at a local farm was delicious, all made from food produced on the property. Plenty of free time to visit the local shops, all decorated ready for Christmas. Highly recommended!

Elena was a fantastic tour guide. Fortunately, my boyfriend and I were the only people on the tour that day so we got a lot of undivided attention. We definitely felt like we'd gotten the special treatment!
Elena met us, on time, at our designated pick-up spot and quickly whisked us off toward Pienza. We stopped at a little village along the way for a cup of coffee she refused to let us pay and a bit of sightseeing. From there we headed to a farm for lunch one of our favorite locations/experiences of our entire two weeks in Italy and then into Pienza proper. What a beautiful town! Elena walked us through the town, giving us great historic information, and then allowed us to wander leisurely for the rest of our time there.
On our way to Montepulciano, Elena was kind enough to pull over, allowing me to capture some of the breathtaking landscape with my camera. Once we arrived in Montepulciano she again walked with us to give us historical insight, but then gave us time to take in the town at our own pace.
Upon our return to Siena she was kind enough to drop us off closer to our apartment rather than the designated drop off point which was so appreciated after a long day of touring.
Do not miss these two towns when you're in Tuscany - and this Viator tour was the perfect way for us to experience them! We never felt rushed and we probably wouldn't have seen half of the wonderful sights we were shown had we driven there on our own.

This is my second attempt to post a review. My husband and I are still raving about our wonderful tour with Sylvia in October. It was a fabulous day and one of the highlights of our entire trip. The tour was perfectly timed, beginning with a coffee stop in charming little Chiusure, anchored by an unforgettable meal at the biodynamic farm, and finishing just as the rain began in Montepulciano. Sylvia was a delightful host and the tour exceeded our expectations.

My favorite trip in Italy. The towns of Montepulciano and Pienza were charming. And the farm/restaurant was amazing -- some of the best food we had in all of Italy. Very enjoyable trip.

Fabulous! We enjoyed the size of the small group tour 7 and give Mary kudos for a job well done. Lunch was amazing! We even visited a tourist-free village!! Had lots of fun and would definitely recommend this trip. The views were breath-taking. Sadly, have tried to post photos without success. JC

An excellent tour led by a guide Elena? who was personable, knowledgeable, energetic, and passionate about the places she took us. The areas we visited were beautiful and interesting, and the tour was easily the best among the ones we took during our three weeks in Italy. Loved the fact that the tour was small, too, and we had a chance to interact with the guide, who seemed happy to answer every question she was asked.

This was a beautiful sunny day in November. We spent eight wonderful hours touring Tuscany, two beautiful hill towns and having a stunning lunch at a private residence over looking the Tuscan countryside, a scene out of a movie, and we were in it. Our tour guide was very friendly and informative. We were very lucky to be the only people on our tour off season and had plenty of time to explore on our own. I would highly recommend this tour.

Sylvia as our tour hostess was totally awesome! This was the best deal of any tour we have hired in the past bar none. We saw a lot of the beautiful Tuscan country and towns. We had a meal to die for at an organic farm where everything was produced on the farm: wheat/flour/bread, red and white wine, various cheeses, and fresh vegetables. It will be well remembered and talked bout in our household. Thanks Viator!
