What a wonderful way to see Tuscany! Our guide Sandra and our driver Sergio were wonderful. Sandra is honestly one of the best tour guides I have EVER had on any tour. She really worked hard to make sure that each person had a great experience. The tour covered many more sights than we would have been able to see on our own. It was a great way to figure out where you want to go back and stay. I would take this tour again tomorrow. The vegetarian option at lunch was wonderful and the food was delicious. I really enjoyed the tour and HIGHLY recommend it! I cannot say enough about how great Sandra was.

Our tour guide, Stephen was excellent! This tour was worth every penny! Our tourguide in Sienna was energetic and so informative. The winery lunch and wine was outstanding and not to be missed. Book this trip and you wont be disappointed! A MUST DO!

Traveling alone, this was a great way to experience Tuscany and not feel so alone or have to figure it all out by myself. I will continue to find the tour operators, they are the best.

This was a fantastic adventure trough the Tuscan countryside despite the light drizzle that developed during the afternoon! Our guide, Sandra, was born in Tuscany, so provided great insight into the area. She spoke English clearly and was easy to hear and understand. Our driver, Sergio, navigated the hilly countryside with ease. Visiting the little towns of Sienna and San Gimignano was a wonderful get away from the hustle and bustle Florence. The lunch and wine tasting provided at the organic farm was delicious and plentiful. This is an area I would definitely return to if I am able to visit Italy again!

This tour was amazing. It was recommended by a friend and I would definitely recommend to others.

Great tour! You get to visit some of the older cities of Italy - Sienna and Pisa. Definitely pay the extra to climb the tower of Pisa. Lunch at the farm/vineyard was incredibly enjoyable, and there's a fantastic view from where you can take photos.

Gloria was a wonderful tour guide from our host WALKABOUT. She was very chatty too and gave us interesting insights to the various medieval towns that we visited.
Wonderful host. Great bus too. We went to a few other tours, and the buses were always so cramped that our shoulders were always rubbing against each other. :( But this bus by WALKABOUT was big and spacious. PERFECTO!

We went from Florence to Siena then to the Chianti Vineyards and to San Gimignano. The food at the vineyard was okay, the wine was good but the experience was fantastic. My family and I enjoyed this trip very much.

Thumbs up!

This tour was by far the best most professionally lead tour that I took. Our guide was so professional and courteous and conscious of our elderly guest. I would highly recommend this tour it was the highlight of my trip to Italy.

We were in beautiful Florence for 6 nights over new year...so much fun and LOVE that city. Wanted to see Tuscanny and have enjoyed our Viator tours so booked this trip. We all thought it was fantastic. Aliza was brilliant...so much fun. So suited to her job. Everything went like clockwork and we managed to fit in a visit to Sienna (omg) and San Gimignano plus an amazing long table lunch and wine tasting at an organic farm plus a visist to see Pisa and the church. Pisa is one of those things that you think could be a cliche but you really just have to see it to understand. If you are in Florence and want to have a taste of Tuscanny with no car, you kust do this day trip. Our 18 year old daughter loved it. Thankyou Aliza and Franco (our very talented bus criver)

Sandra was a great tour guide. We were a group of 8 with varying traveling experiences and all enjoyed the day and learned new things. The winery luncheon was a great respite in the middle of a long day .

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.
