  1. CK_C

    Great experience and good value!
    Alessandro (Alex) was a great driver and guide. This itinerary went together very well, with three distinct experiences, but not rushed and all within nine hours.

  2. Jana_A

    Great way to see Tuscany
    We loved this tour! We were lucky to be two of only five people on the tour so took it in a van. Our guide, Alex, gave an excellent walking tour of Siena and also gave us time to explore on our own. We loved the wine tasting and lunch at the vineyard and just seeing how beauty of the Chianti area. Our favorite spot of a great tour was San Gimignano, a small town that still had its medieval towers and architecture.

  3. Sarah_G

    Fun tour!
    This was a nice tour to explore outside of Florence. We saw 2 medieval cities and had a nice tour / lunch at a winery. Alex did a great job showing us around and was a lot of fun!
