Good to do if you want to see several places in one day……but be warned…..it’s a log day! Our tour guide was lovely, however; her English was not strong and she was difficult to understand at times.

Excellent trip with ample time to enjoy all stops, only shortcoming was the lunch (small portions, not very tasty, no choice of dishes). Wine tasting was a highlight and cannot speak highly enough of the beauty of all three towns visited - the perfect way to take in the stunning tuscan countryside.

The towns we visited were beautiful and the winery and wine tasting were excellent. Tough day in this heat but ax on bus and in winery helped. Easy way to see so much on one day. We chose our own lunch option in Siena which was perfect. Lots of free time. Lovely guide Gloria

Bus picked up far from the center of Firenze, the buss seats were very small and the air conditioner could be better. The wine tasting was not good and the toilets in the place were very dirty. However, the cities were amazing (Siena and San Giminiano) and the tour guide was very simpatic. In my opinion, there should have been more explanation on the San Giminiano history, but the Siena tour was very complete.

Beautiful landscapes, comfortable bus and Anna was great! Unfortunately our guide in Siena was not great, the wine tasting was rushed, only to leave us waiting for the bus for 20 minutes, which could have been spent at Monteriggioni, where we only had 30 minutes. Still enjoyable!

Siena during the Pallio was extremely special. Siena alone was six stars! San Gimignano is also a real gem. Those two towns in one day is plenty for a full day tour.

A wonderful adventure that was well narrated by Gloria. The trip was well organized and she was very knowledgeable. Siena was certainly amazing but I felt like there should be more time dedicated to San Gimignano as it was far to short there. The village is absolutely amazing. The wine tasting should be skipped as it was only ok and the wines extremely expensive in comparison to what is available in Tuscany. This is the only negative to the trip. The selected winery is subpar and I felt that it was well overpriced for what the wines are actually available for in the city as well as the US. For example, the premium reserve wine was being sold for €38 onsite as takeaway. I can buy it in the US for $24. This seems a bit shady. Other than that, it’s an amazing experience.

Great way to see Tuscany in a day!

We had the best time. Given we did so much in one day it never felt rushed. We also lucked out with a small group. The winery was so good we joined the wine club. The lunch service was okay, the restaurant was a little pushy about how and what we ordered, I think in retrospect we would have rather just done our own thing to have had more memorable food on our vacation and not just the basics they deemed cheap enough to feed us.

Need to go back
Paulina_A

I really loved every single place we went to . The only reason I gave it 4 stars is not enough time to really check out sienna or San Gimignano. An hour more in each would at least let you go in the Duomo or a museum. I loved that I got to see the city’s but I can’t say I got to experience them. It was too fast . Monteriggioni is small the time there and the wine tasting was definitely plenty. Transportation was also excellent the bus was comfortable and air conditioned:-)

Pretty sites but poor guidance
eric_k
, May 2022
The good points: Pre trip Communication from the tour co. reconfirming pickup time & place The bad points: The guide was poor The specifics: I am a travel agent who escorted a group of 10 people on this tour of Siena, Chianti and San Gim today. I had booked it through Viator.com While I appreciate that the company was very courteous in responding to my questions in advance and in reconfirming via both email and via What’s app, I must tell you that the guide Rafael did a poor job in several aspects. First, at the start of the tour, in Siena, one of our passengers asked him a simple question. Instead of answering it, he criticized her for sleeping on the bus and thus apparently not hearing him state on the bus, the information she was asking. Then when one of the passengers asked him to turn up the volume of his microphone and/or speech, he ignored the request. He also ignored other questions by passengers. Once he was asked simply where he was from and he replied that he did not want to answer that while walking on the tour. (He later did answer that, but his initial reaction l was a bit offensive ) Then at the included lunch, the restaurant asked five of our people to sit at a four person table, making one person uncomfortable. When we asked the guide to ask the restaurant to split the five into two tables, he said he could not ask them because he does not work for the restaurant. Then at the winery, after the tour of the grounds, but before the tasting, I told the winery guide that I am allergic to sulfites in wines and thus she politely suggested I not attend the tasting but rather that I just relax on the grounds. I followed her advice and found a lounge chair on the grounds to merely sit on. However, to my surprise, a cleaning personnel walked up to me and vocally told me I could not sit there and I must return to the tasting area. I walked to your guide and asked him to explain the situation to her but he refused, again saying that he does not work there. Lastly, on the bus ride back, as we approached Villa Costanza for the drop off, I asked him to simply call a taxi for merely four people in our party wishing to go back to our hotel. He again refused, saying he could only give us the phone number to ourselves make the call. I asked him to just call for the cab and just tell us how many minutes the can company said it will be there. He claimed the taxi company would not allow someone to call a taxi for someone who would not be in the taxi and that he could not wait the 5-10 minutes a taxi would take, as he had somewhere to go. He then told us to take the tram to the second stop and get off there because He knew that taxis were always there. We followed his instructions and walked to the tram. At that time, four more people in our group decided not to go into Florence, but instead, join us on the tram to what was supposed to be where we would catch the taxi. All eight of us took the tram two stops as instructed and got off there , However, there were no taxis. We asked a security guard standing there and he said taxis don’t regularly come there. Another nice man overheard our request and he offered to call two taxis for us. We thanked him and told him the name of our hotel we were going to. He made the call and then told us that two taxis would be there on 8 minutes. This made us realize that the guide had not told us the truth about taxi companies in Italy not allowing someone to call a taxi for someone else. The taxi arrived in approx 8 minutes as the nice man had indicated and it took us to our hotel. Your guide also had terribly misguided us on which tram stop to get off at to best catch a taxi. Ultimately, his guidance the whole day, was utterly lacking. He just displayed an attitude that he just did not care to assist the passengers with anything but taking the bus from one stop to the next but nothing more. It is sad that the good work done by the tour company prior to the tour and the good vibes from the many pretty sites seen on the tour, was all undone by their guide’s lack of caring to assist his passengers.

Sienna - Wow, Monteriggioni - Wow and the last stop of the day San Gimignano - wow, the cherry on top. A long day (about 11 hours) but so worth it to see these beautiful locations, each one better than the last of that’s possible. The downside of this tour was the tour guides lack of English language frequently. Many in the group were struggling to understand her. The other issue was she was speaking with a microphone so it was hard to hear anything. I have Done many group tours and didn’t find the guide engaged that well with the group. Overall would recommend this though for the locations.

Our guide Francesco (not sure if that’s spelled correctly) was thorough, knowledgeable, professional, and super personable. Oh and he handled that van like a boss through some crazy narrow streets!! Loved stops we made. Each of the towns were so different and unique. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
