The best way to see some of the most wonderful sights in Tuscany. The relaxation of the motor coach versus the stress of driving or train transfers was well worth the cost.

Great day trip and very well organised. We were colour coded depending on our choices and our Tour Guide was very professional. She spoke 4 languages and moved from one to the other very quickly. Our local guides were also fantastic. The wine and food tasting was intimate with no pressure to buy. Thank you for a wonderful day.

Made a choice to drop pisa from the itinerary and go for this tour instead. Did not regret it. Wine tasting session was very informative and generous. Opt for the tour of Siena. you do not want to miss out on learning about the town's rich culture and history.

Very informative and interesting tour. Helena was a wonderful guide and the smaller tour size was nice. Enjoyed the tour of Siena. I have been to Siena before but was unaware of the history of the town, specifically the horse race, Until this trip.

This was a fun tour, but keep in mind there is a LOT of walking...! Local tour of Siena was outstanding and very informative. Wine tasting was excellent and very well done. Pick up location is quite difficult to find...nowhere to sit..

Excellent tour. Really well organised and the guides were fabulous. The Siena guide who explained the Contrada and the Palio was wonderful. I would have loved a little longer in San Gimignano. In Siena we also took the tour of the Cathedral spectacular but then we had no time to do any shopping but I guess you cant have everything. We had a fabulous day even though it was quite long. My only small criticism would be better instructions for finding the tour start point. There were lots of renovations at the train station so it was a bit of a challenge finding the bus stop.

Great trip and good value for the price of the tour. Four stops all good. Obviously, when your making four stop you don't have as much time to explore as you want at each place but I'm glad we took this tour instead of one that just covers Siena. Be prepared for 11 hour day.....8:30 AM to 7:30 PM. Enjoy!!!

We enjoy visiting these small towns, each with their own particular point of view and interest, and the trip went by very quickly. You take in a lot of interesting stuff.

A great tour with a knowledgeable and informed guide who was most thoughtful and helpful. An enlightening visit which brought alive the history and traditions of the places visited. The bus driver was 'the best' and reliable in difficult driving conditions in the evening in the clouds of the Tuscan hills.
