Perfect to see the towns around Florence like Siena, San Gimignano and Pisa. Tasty lunch with an awesome view and very good wine. Stefano was an incredibly helpful guide, very knowledgeable and funny. The bus was comfortable with a/c. I only wish I had a little more time in Pisa. Highly recommend it.

Excellent tour. Olivia was very professional and the tour was great.
Everything worked perfectly.

This tour was fantastic and ran very smoothly mainly due to our professional and enthusiastic guide, Anton. She was very informative and a delight to spend the day with. Lunch at the farm was delicious and plentiful and the wine tasting wasn't too bad either!
There was ample time for shopping and sightseeing. This was the best tour we have been on in Europe, was great value for money and would highly recommend it.

Awesome, Awesome Day in Italy. The trip was incredibly-well coordinated. The guides were very informative and easy to understand. The tour bus was immaculately-clean. The lunch we were served at the farm was the best we had in Italy Seriously!.
The only part of the tour I didn't care for was the Pisa portion. But that didn't have anything to do with the tour guides, I just thought the Leaning Tower of Pisa was overly-commercialized and at the same time, Pisa, itself, was very dirty....but how do you go to Tuscany and not visit the Leaning Tower, right?

Recommended lovely tour, sienna, pisa, San G amazing except the guide advises that if you are late the bus will leave you which i think is not proper as it is the responsibility of the tour company to ensure everybody is taken care of. It is rude in my opinion.

The most enjoyable tour I had in Italy, I can't think of it being any better.

A great tour. Trip through Siena nice job, Francesca, San Gimignano and Pisa was very well set up. Lunch at the farm was highlight of the trip. And all this with our tour guide Elise and Ricardo, priceless.
A must if you are out and about in Florence area.

Great tour - well planned out itinerary and the perfect way to squeeze the most out of 1 day in Tuscany! The tour guide Stefano is an energetic and knowledgeable history buff whose love for Florence made the day all the more wonderful. I was a solo traveler and met some wonderful new friends!

I spent my birthday on this tour and it was amazing! Our tour guide was very informative and made the trip fun. She was also very patient when other people in our group did not follow her instructions on meeting times. After each tour of the various stops, we were given enough time on our own to shop, grab a bite or relax. Our lunch at the winery was delicious, probably the best pasta and biscotti I had during my time in Italy. The views and photos from our stops were breathtaking. I would definitely recommend this to anyone wanting a nice getaway from the city. Bring comfy walking shoes though!

The tour was wonderful. Our tour guide Stefano was very lively.

Activity information

Famous for a wealth of art, history, striking landscapes and outstanding produce, Tuscany really does have the best of all worlds! With only a day to spare, see the best Tuscany has to offer on this full-day guided coach trip from Florence.

Meet your local guide before heading for the hills on a scenic drive through the Tuscan countryside. Your first stop for the day is gothic Siena, famous for its medieval streets. Choose to join a guided tour through the city(free entry inside the Cathedral is included). Or, alternatively, you're free to marvel the sights of Siena at your own pace, enjoy a drink in an open air cafe and meet the locals.

Enjoy a stroll among Chianti vineyards, olive groves and wine cellars before indulging in a traditional Tuscan lunch amongst the Sienese hills where Chianti wine is produced. Surrounded by grapes vines you'll have the opportunity to meet fellow travelers while feasting on local foods including cold meats, salads, pasta and bread. A wine-tasting class will be held during lunch including free samples of wine and olive oil (which are also available for purchase).

After lunch you will visit San Gimignano where you can roam the maze of cobbled streets and small squares, grab a gelato and walk between San Gimignano's famous 14 towers. Your final stop is Pisa, where you can take an up-close inspection of The Leaning Tower, view the Cathedral, the Baptistery and monumental Cemetery in Pisa before venturing back to Florence where your full-day tour concludes.
