This was the perfect day trip to see Tuscany in a day (if that’s all the time you have). Our guide Manolo was amazing and so informative. He gave good recommendations and some history lessons throughout the day. He was always checking in with us and made sure we were having a good time! Thank you to him! If you can, opt for the farm lunch, it was lovely and a good opportunity to taste some wines from the region. Although it is a long day, you get plenty time to rest on the bus in between places. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Sara our guide and Enrico our driver gave us a really good day out, very friendly, well organised and caring. The tour around Sienna was excellent with expert commentary from the local guide, with fascinating details of the Palio. The lunch near San Giminiano was excellent and the town very atmospheric. Pisa and the Leaning Tower finished the day well. Just the right amount and blend of commentary from Sara and very friendly manner, and faultless English.

The overall experience was good, however the lack of designated bathroom breaks during the trip posed problems. This trip is 400 km all said and done with no bathroom breaks. Each of the stops had a public bathroom available (somewhere), but for .50 - 1 euro (with the exception of the Chianti Hill stop). There were often times lines, which took away from the free time available. Be sure to have euro coins with you. The bus had probably 70 or so people vying for the same bathroom (plus those in other groups) when available and the guide was very impatient of this. The bus we were on was a standard charter bus, so the fact that there wasn't a toilet on the bus was weird. This huge problem be resolved with that small feature. We also were constantly rushed with hardly any time to explore the areas we stopped at. You get a tasting of the town, but no real time to immerse yourself in it and experience the culture. With that all said, I would recommend this tour.
