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.
We met our friendly guide in Siena as well as the other 5
Travelers. We spent a wonderful day exploring
Southern Tuscany. Each stop was unique and
An opportunity to meet local residents and experience
The ambience of the area. The lunch under the Tuscan sun was
Delicious and congenial! We loved this our first full day in
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.
We had a wonderful day!
Mare was a delightful guide with lots of knowledge of the area.
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.
It was a lovely tour. We especially enjoyed the wine tasting experience, which was informative and entertaining.
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!
A beautiful tour on a gorgeous day in Tuscany. Our guide Sylvia was superb! She facilitated what evolved into a wonderful dynamic within our small group of tourists. Please compliment our guide.
After traveling to Italy 14 times, I came across the most knowledgeable, gracious and thoughtful tour guide I have ever known. Bravo Viator!!
Our guide Elena was amazing-warm, very knowledgable. We learned a lot about the history of the region and enjoyed beautiful sights.
Elena was an excellent and friendly guide. The towns and countryside were beautiful and lunch good cheese was excellent.
Milo was an excellent, informative and entertaining guide, and the trip was a very good mix of drive through beautiful countryside, delightful hill towns and superb leisurely lunch at the organic farm, along with good wine. The wine tasting in Montepulciano was unexpected and very enjoyable.
Did this tour last year and enjoyed it so much came back for more
An absolute must to see the best of the Tuscan hill towns and enjoy an excellent lunch with all produce coming from their own farm
Elena was both helpful and knowledgable
This was an excellent trip and Elena our Tour Guide was excellent. She was very fluent in English and went out of her way to make this an amazing, special tour!!! She was very well versed in all sorts of topics and she was able to answer our many and varied questions. I think the highlight of the day was the lunch in a fabulous restaurant where we ate Italian food and she showed us how to eat it the Italian way. Well done Elena!!!
If you are in Siena, you have to take this tour! The visit to the dairy farm was wonderful. Silvia, our tour guide, made the experience personal and unique.
We found our trip extremely worthwhile. Milo was knowledgeable, pleasant, and we learnt a lot regarding Montepulciano, Pienza and Italy in general. He knew his subject well and had a fun way of imparting this. Would recommend this trip to everyone.

This was so much fun! I absolutely loved Pienza. Montepulciano is pretty nice but Pienza was the real highlight for me. The farm restaurant that we had lunch at was fantastic. We had some really delicious food - and lots of it too! Our guide was Daniel and he was very friendly and knowledgeable.
It was wonderful. Susanna the guide was fun friendly and informative.It was hard to leave Siena.I will never forget it! Jobella
This tour is totally worth it, while you travel along the contry side of Tuscany...under a sunny weather...and the highlight of this tour is a relaxing tour in one of the organic farm ...to stay in Pienza is only 30 minute..although Pienza is such a small town...I heard a lot of people wished they could spend more time there
what a great day out. Our Guide was very friendly, well informed and couldn't do enough for us. We ensured we were looked after, and knew exactly what we were doing and when. There was a situation on this trip (a guest was not picked up and arrived late, he and his family were very angry), however, the guide was great, she apologised, 'took' the flax and remained friendly, it was through her manner that the chap 'thawed' and was able to enjoy his day out.....he later apologised. The day out was fantastic exactly what we thought the Tuscany would be, we loved visiting the first small village it was just great.....
This tour was excellent and we highly recommend it. We wanted to experience the Tuscan countryside and we were able to see some delightful small villages with amazing views. The lunch at the hilltop farm under the grape vines was perfect. Also, our guide, Milo, was friendly, informative and amusing. We were fortunate indeed to have had such a fantastic tour.
Visiting the heart of Tuscany was like a dream come true. Here the reality was even better than the dream. This tour was the highpoint of our trip to Siena -- even more enjoyable than the great food. Speaking of food, lunch at the Il Casale organic farm was outstanding. We are from northern California, so wine country treats are not foreign to us but this was over the top. Montepulciano and Pienza were just magical. We had just the right amount of time at each stop. Our guide, Corallo, was very knowledgable and pleasant to talk to. Everything went smoothly according to plan. We could not have been more pleased.
