Julio the guide was awesome! Cities were more than expected... wish we had more time. Bus seats were not comfortable, but the usb charger for each seat was nice. Spotty WiFi access on bus. Make sure to wear comfy shoes because there are plenty of stairs and inclines. I would do this again thru this tour company.
O ponto positivo Pienza que cidade encantadora, ponto negativo, muito tempo perdido nas degustações podia usar parte deste tempo nas cidades um exemplo não apenas parar na estrada em
Val d'Orcia ( frustante)
the trip was perfection. the schedule was well paced with enough time to enjoy each site. the guide, Brando, was informative and really cared about showing this beautiful part of italy. highly recommended.
The guide Giullio, was terrific. Went out of his way to meet everyone's needs. The,towns are beautiful and having free time in each was so nice. The first wine tasting was really great at a small winery. The 2nd one in Montepulciano was a touristy disappointment. My
Very nice tour. Our guide Marta was very sweet and knowledgable. It is a long day and unfortunately it was raining for a good part of ours. However you do get to see some very cute towns, I never would have visited otherwise. I wish the cheese tasting was a little more extensive, we just got to try three pieces of Pecorino on tooth picks. But if you enjoy wine and the countryside, it's a good way to experience both.
Every time I do a bus tour through Viator I end up spending most of my time on the bus listening to commentary and taking awful pictures through the window. I liked the guide immensely but there is just so much you can do when you have a bus full of people and limited amount of time. Because we had no real time to eat, I ended up getting very sick on the way back to Florence. The only thing I can say positive about this trip is that I saw some new countryside for the first time and met some very nice people.
This is a very long but immersive tour. The guides were great and knowledgeable about the regions’s history. If you only have one day to spare this tour will give it a lot to you. There are some short breaks to do a bit of shopping. But don’t dawdle!
We saw lovely scenery, everything was on time. However our guide had a very poor voice for the microphone: monotone, mike held too close to his mouth, many too many references to how good it was to drink wine all day, we did not often hear what he said in the back of the bus. Lastly, there many, many steps, high steps which are more difficult to negotiate and no help for those who had difficulty.
