      This was the most beautiful and fun tour I’ve ever been on! It was so great to get to try a few different wines and see the Tuscan countryside. We got a little lost on the way to the meeting point and the tour guides were nice enough to wait for us which was so kind.

      We were the only 2 on this tour so they called to change or cancel - we upgraded to add on Siena - so pleased we did. It’s a long day and you start at 0830 at the coach station out of town ( very easy to get to on tram) then visit walled cities, Siena, Saint Gimignano and stayed for a great lunch of cheeses, ham, bread pasta and wines. The wine is very well explained and the lunch was excellent but you see none of the process or cellars, Which was disappointing. Never the less I would recommend the tour. The guide was great and lots of free time in each city.

      We did this tour in September 2020- it was my partner and I, plus two other couples. The instructions for meeting our guide were clear and it was easy to get the tram to the starting location. The guide was more a driver than a guide but was friendly and we felt safe with him driving the mini bus. We went to one beautiful traditional Tuscan winery (stopping on the way at a great viewpoint) where we sat in the wine cellar and tried 3 wines plus two balsamic vinegars, a couple of olive oils plus some cured meats and cheese. Our host for the tasting was very friendly and charasmatic, although with masks on it was a little hard to understand everything he said. We also had the chance to buy the produce afterwards but we did not feel pressures to do so. After the wine tasting, we visited the nearby village of Castellina and then Monteriggioni- the guide dropped us of and told us when to be back at the pick-up point. All in all we enjoyed this, and would recommend it to others.
