Our guide, Lorenzo, was incredible. He was able to provide so much context and information about the city of Siena in particular that it completely elevated the experience versus touring on our own. If you only have one day to tour Tuscany, this is definitely a great way to go, highly recommend!

We visited Siena and San Gimignano with our guide Alessandro, we had a fabulous experience. Our first stop was Siena, as we drove Alessandro provided valuable insights into the Chianti region and pointed out scenes of interest. On arrival at our destination Alessandro told us of the history of the lovely city he is very knowledgeable and passionate about this region and his enthusiasm is definitely infectious! The weather wasn’t brilliant but Alessandro made us laugh by insisting it was getting better!! Lunch at an old vineyard was very good and then to San Gimignano a fabulous place where Alessandro provided us with an overview and recommendations for Gelato - he was right! we had plenty of time to discover the delights of both cities. I would recommend this trip and ask for Alessandro, he really made the day.

This was the best day trip from our entire vacation in Italy. Both towns were beautiful and that lunch was delicious. We had an amazing made pasta and snack plate to go with our wine tasting. Our tour guide Alex made the trip outstanding with punctual pick ups throughout the trip and very informative commentary the entire day. I would strongly recommend this trip!

Allesandro, our guide was amazing — caring, attentive, professional, punctual and informative. His love for his country and work come shining through. The tour is great — small group versus large group makes a huge difference — a van versus a bus. The Cathedral in Sienna is a masterpiece. Be sure to see the library within the cathedral as well. The vineyard in classic Chianti where we had lunch was beautiful and off the beaten path. The wines, though you can buy them for yourself through the winery, are not available in the States. San Gimignano has always been one of my very favorite hill towns in Tuscany for its beauty, history and vistas. There Alessandro directed us to a gelateria that won an award for the best gelato in the world. Go :-))

One of the best tours I've ever participated with the best possible guide Alessandro. We went on the tour almost end of season mid november 2021 and were just a small group of 4 who did the tuscany gems tour. It was a very relaxed, cozy experience. We had plenty of time for discovering the beautiful villages of Siena and San Gimignano and got very useful information about the history, lifestyle and specific points of interest during the whole day of our guide. Then we enjoyed a very nice dinner and wine-tasting at a family owned winery and moved on in a small bus through the amazing scenery of Tuscany. We were very lucky traveling this time - nowhere it was crowded, even the most popular places we had almost for our own. The tour is in general very well designed for people who like the combination of free time and some guided elements. It's also practical that you don't have to drive yourself through the often very tight streets and through the sometimes adventurous Italian traffic ;-).

I cannot say enough positive things about the trip! Alessandro (“Alex”) was a superb guide. He is charming and knows how to describe the area and it’s history in great detail without sounding like he’s reciting facts. We spent a good chunk of time wandering the streets of Siena before we were given time to explore the duomo and shops on our own. Plenty of time to grab souvenirs and be humbled inside that beautiful church. Lunch and the tour of the winery were amazing as well. They are generous with their passion for winemaking and with their tasting pours. San Gimignano is a tiny little town but situated in the absolute heart of Tuscany and is my favorite stop. We were turned loose on our own for a full 90 minutes, which is ample time for shopping and some gelato. On our way back, Alessandro filled us with stories of his favorite places to eat and even some of his Nonna’s best recipes. I highly recommend this tour and Alessandro as your guide!

This is the perfect day trip to take if you want a day out of Florence! Siena and San Gimignano are two beautiful cities with their own unique stories and architectural wonders. But what really made this trip exceptional was our guide, Brando! We have been on many day trips over the years and I can honestly say, Brando is superb at his job. Interesting conversations about what the group is experiencing wins out over a list of boring facts every time! Well done sir! It was our sixth time to San Gimignano and Brando managed to show us views and points of interest that we had never seen before. Also included on this tour was a stop for lunch at a family run winery. See, swirl, smell, sip is the same on all wine tours. However, the food on this one! Delicious, fresh, homemade ingredients! And reasonable wine to take or ship home. Do this tour! You will not be disappointed!

We had a lovely time on this all-encompassing tour. We started with a walking tour in Siena, which is a must see! Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and captivating. We loved seeing all of the medieval architecture. Next, we went to Lornano Winery in the Chianti region. It was stated that along with our wine tasting we would have a “light lunch”. It wasn’t exactly light (meats and cheeses, pasta, bruschetta, cookies) but it was delicious! We were given a tour of the wine cellars and the grounds, which were breathtaking. Lastly, we stopped in San Gimignano for some free time. It was nice to have some time to walk around and explore the city as well as look at the beautiful views. Our driver / tour guide, Francesco was helpful and taught us a LOT along the way!

Dear Jessica B, enthusiastic reviews like yours make us so happy and we sincerely appreciate it. We are glad you enjoyed our Siena and San Gimignano Small Group tour, the “light lunch” (as light as a Tuscan meal with meats, salami and pasta can be!) and we are even more glad our guide and Francesco improved your experience among the beauties of Tuscany.

Lorenzo (& Giuseppe) were fantastic. Lorenzo's tour style is greatly appreciated...casual, informative, helpful, and humorous. Small group tour was perfect size. I've been to these places before, but Lorenzo made me feel like it was my first time and I walked away learning so much more.

This tour was absolutely fantastic! We had a wonderful day visiting these beautiful towns in Tuscany. Lunch at the vineyard was delicious! The only negative of the day was Mother Nature providing us with a chilly, rainy day. Our driver, Alessandro, was such a pleasure. He made the experience perfect. We highly recommend doing this small group tour & ask for Alessandro! You won’t be sorry.
