'Siena day trip was great'

The day tour to Siena, Chianti, San Gimignano was well organized and the itinerary was good. Our POrtughese speaking guide Carla was very helpful and friendly. In Siena after the city tour we had time for lunch and rest. We recommend!


Organization, easy meeting point and check in, fresh water into the bus, good timing in the attractions


some extense walking under the hot sun; wine tasting not worth it; bad timing in stop in Monteriggione (could be better)

My boyfriend and I booked this tour during our trip in Florence and it was well worth the money. It was quite long, almpst the whole day, and we visited a lot of places. Of course the wine was exquisite!

'Loved the hills'

It was surely a lovely trip. The hills were wonderful and I loved the wine! Siena is a trip back in time,i t felt as if we'd been dropped into a medieval town of the 1500s. The tour was very informative
