This tour was the perfect way to see the Tuscan country side in one day! It’s a long day with a lot of walking but you see so many different things in a short time. Our tour guide was very helpful when needed but also let us do our own things. The winery was amazing and would have loved to spend more time there. If you are looking to get really deep into each city and spend a lot of time looking around this tour probably isn’t for you. We had about an hour to and hour and a half in each city and lunch at the winery was about an hour as well. Would recommend this to friends or family visiting!

Amazing tour guide Violeta and driver Antonio. We booked this last minute and really enjoyed our time. We got plenty of wine and even bought a bottle to share with our table of our favorite one.

Really cool experience. Well organized by GYG and associated local partner.

It was an amazing day, thanks to Ado! The trip exceeded our expectations.

Excellent tour. It was fun and very informative. Loved it!!!
