Absolutely loved this tour, the combination of cities was perfect and provided a balance of structured and free time.

I would highly recommend this tour, as it was recommended to me. Be prepared for walking up/down hill - it is worth it. Tuscany is breathtaking.

Truly exceptional!!

One of the best tours offered for your money. The towns we visited provided us a unique opportunity to actually see the towns outside the big Italy cities and large crowds as well. We particularly enjoyed Monteriggioni, Siena and best of all, the spectacular views of San Gimignano. The wine tasting tour was very informative and we enjoyed the wines as well as the oil samples. The tour guide was extremely nice and kept us continuously informed throughout the tour. If you visit Florence for more than a day, this tour is a must you dont miss.

Guided tour of Siena, Chianti wine-tasting, Personalised pickup service from the apartment

My wife, 2 adult daughters and i thoroughly enjoyed this Day Tour. While our Driver ensured a safe, comfortable drive through lush, beautiful Tuscan countryside, our Guides Antonella, Lisa and Local Siena Guide Elena provided us with a very professional, knowledgeable and in-depth view of this beautiful part of Italy. They were kind, considerate and very clear in their communication. The lunch, a sampling of typical Italian fare was excellent. And the end-of- the- day Wine tasting at the Chianti Vineyard was indeed a celebration, ably conducted by the Owner of the vineyard who was not only extremely knowledgeable but also a gifted entertainer, actor and presenter. All in all a wonderful 'slice of Italian life' experience. And great value for money.
