Our tour guide Alice and driver Luigi for our small group of only 2 couples were very personable, and informative. The views of the Tuscan countryside were wonderful, and the drive each way was about a hour. Both Sienna and Sam Gimignano were amazing to see. Lunch and wine tasting at the beautiful vineyard home was lovely. A truly memorable experience! Also,we later enjoyed both Florence restaurants that Alice and Luigi recommended.
We are a family of 4, kids age 16 and 19. We had a wonderful trip out to Tuscan and a superb guide , Alice. Would recommend this tour, it is the right amount of guided and free time. Both Siena and San Gimignano were with seeing and length of tour is reasonable. Overall excellent experience
We had a wonderful day touring Siena and the beautiful San Gimignano with Stefano and Alice. In addition, the lunch at the winery was delicious!! I would highly recommend this tour. Alice was a very attentive and knowledgeable guide. We especially loved the walking tour of each city and the addition of the history of each site that Alice provided. The intact Medieval city of San Gimignano was unforgettable.
Wonderful day and would highly recommend. Alice and Alessandro were excellent hosts for the day and despite the thunderstorms and hailstones that accompanied us, they made it a superb day.
Siena was beautiful and San Gimignano breathtaking. Lunch and wine tasting was very enjoyable and as there was only 6 of us on the trip, an ideal opportunity for us to get to know each other.
Alex was a great tour guide, so professional, with enthusiasm and knowledge. He was a delight. Siena and San Gimignano were so beautiful, and happily at this time of year, not crowded. We had a good amount of time in each town and our winery tasting and lunch couldn't have been nicer. Very warm and friendly host, and delicious food! We had a great day. A special tour guide was included in Siena who was local and she explained all about the Palio race, and through the stunning Duomo. Highly recommend.
Our driver Alessandro was excellent. He shared local knowledge on the way to Siena and San Gimignano, and made an added stop on the way back so we could see the sunset at Piazzelle Michelangelo. Alessandro also went above and beyond to accommodate my sore knee, dropping me off in alternate areas.
Absolutely loved this tour..... only 8 travelers in a minivan with our guide Francesco who was amazing..... We especially loved the lunch and wine tasting, olive oil tasting .... The pasta was divine and the hospitality of the host whos family has been in the wine, olive oil and balsamic business for many generations was fabulous..... Their home and vineyards are on top of the world with a view of Tuscany that is to die for...... We also especially enjoyed the Medieval village of San Gimignano, the stone towers, which at one time were as many as 70
And now are down to 12. This village is a must see .... Its hard to believe that the churches and homes of the inhabitants are in such perfect condition after all the centuries gone by..... I highly recommend this excursion, and be sure to ask for Francesco, our phenomenal guide.....
