Reviewed by Abigail from Cospicua, Malta on August 4th, 2013 Our tour leader was really great and gave us a lot of information. It is really worth visiting, all three towns are amazing.
Reviewed by a GetYourGuide Customer from Sucy en Brie, France on July 21st, 2013 Very good organisation with a lovely guide named Serena. She takes care of everybody. We had free time in Monterrigioni and San Gimignano and another local guide for Sienna. The lunch was simple but nice. The wine tasting was very good too. We really spent a lovely day.

“Very lovely tour around Tuscany, led in a friendly and professional way!”
Reviewed by Nadine from Berlin, Germany on August 18th, 2012 It was a challenge to take this trip, which leads you through what must be some of the loveliest places in Tuscany, in August, but it's really full of beautiful sights. Siena is like a dream and absolutely worth the trip. There's a good balance between free time and scheduled activities. The one tiny thing I'd mention is that the visit to the vineyard may have been announced in a way that was a bit too grandiose- the vineyard is actually a very small and clearly laid-out establishment, and there weren't any wine tasting area or snack bar (however, that had to do with the low cost of the tour). However that part of the day is still lovely and informative, so I'd say this experience is worthy of grand praise!
Reviewed by Mari-Jo from Elmwood Park, United States on June 6th, 2012 Good guides, food, and wine tasting
“The best guided tour ever!”
Reviewed by Gerald from San Gwann, Malta on April 16th, 2012 We booked this tour through the internet with some misgivings as all the tours seemed to have 'amazing' and 'fantastic' included in their itinery description. Yet this was truly an amazing tour with our fantastic guide Emmanuela and 'Speedy Gonzalez' Massimiliano. Emi was very knowlegeable about the entire area and was a very nice person to get acquainted with. Massimiliano was also a very pleasant person. The only damper on our day out was the weather because it was raining. This, however, did not succeed to ruin the day for us. Truly, truly a fantastic tour worth every cent! This tour was 11 hours long and very intense. We flew to Bologna and took a train to Florence on Friday purposely to take this tour on Saturday 14th. April because then on Sunday we took the train back to Bologna and flew back home. So, our main purpose for travelling was to take this tour and we were not disappointed!
