I booked this tour due to the reason of visiting 3 cities in just one day. The tour was ok-ok. We had to walk a lot back and forth to the parking area, and also since it was almost full bus, we had to wait for others who are not punctual. So the time per cities are not that much. The best thing from this tour was the lunch I think. Although, I didn’t original booked with lunch, I was convinced to take it due to the menu and wines. So I’m glad that it was possible to order lunch on the spot. Also they had vegetarian option and gluten-free option. The free-time in each cities are not that much. Also, when we arrived in Pisa, the museums are already closing. The tower of Pisa is too pricey as well. I just hoped it was a small group so didn’t had to wait for long time for the people. Also, I wish there’s a working toilet in the bus.

Siena, San Gimignano were beautiful. The lunch was nice, although we had not planned to do it; however, because we were the only three people who didn't choose that option, they really didn't have a plan to get us to San Gi while others had lunch. I would have liked to have had more time in SanGi which is why we wanted to opt out of lunch. We did not have enough time in any of the places. We spent too much time walking to and from the bus, which parked far away from every destination. Although the guide told us all the things to do ie. a museum in San Gimignano, we had 50 minutes, including the walk to town. We got to Pisa at sunset so we barely had time to get good pics and we JUST got into the cathedral before it closed. We could not see inside the Baptistry or anything else. We were basically there long enough to take the obligatory pics with the tower. No time to climb it. Be ready to walk about a quarter to half mile to and from the bus at every stop. Very little free time left.

We learned a lot and the recomendations they gave where on point. The tour was long but we got to see many amaizing things and beautiful places. If you can take the tour, take it.
