Fantastic day trip. Alessandro was a great tour leader. The trip to Sienna was good, the tour guide there was very personable and knowledgable - we absolutely loved her stories and personality. The Basilica was breathtakingly beautifully - genuinely. A word of advice, book the lunch and wine tasting, it is absolutely worth it for the views alone. The food, wine, tour and service were 100% worth it too. San Gimignano was a pleasant surprise. Not a town we'd have thought to book a visit to, but we are extremely grateful the tour included it. The town is simply stunning, historical and a must see. Another word of advice- listen to the tour guide on where to get the gelato and thank me later. Pisa is, of course, an absolute must. I'd advise booking your climb of the tower with the company in advance and the tour leader will make sure it's all in place for you at arrival. Another word of advice, bring change for bathroom visits as it is required for each of the city visits.

This day trip was an excellent opportunity to get to know Tuscany. The trip was very well organized with the perfect mix between guided tour and free time. The bus ride was very comfortable, Riccardo did a great job. Also Sara was an excellent tour guide – very humorous, kind and caring!

The tour was great and well planned. Our tour leader Alessandro was awesome, friendly and welcoming. The bus was new, clean and spacious. We visited 1.Siena and had an excellent guided tour around the town (entrance in the cathedral included), 2.San Gimignano, and 3.Pisa. We had a lunch at a local winery/farm with wine tasting. Everything was good and on time! I highly recommend this tour, especially if you don’t have enough time to visit by yourself these sites.
