What people are saying about San Gimignano

I will start off by saying that this store has an error on the title, the wine in chianti is not included and we did not find out until the end which was misleading and disappointing HOWEVER this was not the fault of the tour guides but the website. The tour guide we had was awesome, The day he had planned for us went very well. Use really nice and explain things as we moved a long. One of the things that I appreciated was that he give us our own time to check out the areas, I've been another tours with a talk too much and they don't give you as much free time which can get annoying however with this to her in each area they give us plenty of time to do our own thing. I would highly recommend this tour for someone who is trying to squeeze these three towns in a day. We were thinking about doing this our selves however it would not have been possible in a lot of time it been wasted trying to figure things out.

The tour was well managed, but be sure to plan your trip to the meeting point well as it is located out of Milan center. As for the rest of the trip, rest assured that the guide will provide the best and most informative experience!

It was a fantastic taster of what to experience in Tuscany. All the locations we visited were stunning and our guide was really knowledgable and entertaining. The food and wine tasting was incredible too. Highly recommended!

This tour is amazing!!!! San Geminiano is a must do. You wouldn’t regret it. Book it. Our driver Orlando was very nice and gave us an excellent service.

Great group experience, enough time to walk around and enjoy. Would have liked more time at Pisa, maybe Pisa should be a bit longer, just a suggestion.
