But if you want a tour of Of beautiful Tuscany, see San Gimignano and Montalcino, and check out a couple wineries, this is perfect.

Adam (our driver) and Fabio (our guide) were a perfect pair. Fabio was very knowledgeable and quick to answer questions and recommend shopping and eateries, They both kept us on schedule and made sure that we saw all that we could see during our day. Fabio had great relationships in the areas that we visited and was able to provide great service. When asking about another excursion that we were planning ourselves, both Adam and Fabio were quick to offer options and solve our problems on how were were going to get to Pompeii and the Amalfi coast on our 2 day plan. They went out of there way to arrange for us to join their planned tour to Pompeii and the Amalfi Coast along with dropping us at our hotel for our extended stay. In addition to that, Adam met us the next evening to bring us back to Rome. We were thrilled with all they planned for us for both Siena & San Giminiano along with our trip to Amalfi.

Great way to discover the Tuscany heartland. Even without the guided tour it's a cheap way to travel to all these destinations if a car rental isn't an option. You really can't arrange for less money and time spent. The wine tasting was a really extra nice feature.

Discovery of the magnificent Tuscan countryside accompanied by an exceptional team always attentive. Cultural tour of the sumptuous city of Siena and the charming surrounding villages. A day that ends in style with a gourmet tasting of Tuscan wines.

Incredible expérience in a small group with a perfectly managed timing. The tour of Sienna light have been a bit more détailed otherwise everything was well above my expectations ! I definitely recommend.

Very comfortable bus with an enthusiastic guide. There was enough time to explore the cities on my own. The cities themselves were amazing and the guide added interesting historic information
