We did this tour in September 2020- it was my partner and I, plus two other couples. The instructions for meeting our guide were clear and it was easy to get the tram to the starting location. The guide was more a driver than a guide but was friendly and we felt safe with him driving the mini bus. We went to one beautiful traditional Tuscan winery (stopping on the way at a great viewpoint) where we sat in the wine cellar and tried 3 wines plus two balsamic vinegars, a couple of olive oils plus some cured meats and cheese. Our host for the tasting was very friendly and charasmatic, although with masks on it was a little hard to understand everything he said. We also had the chance to buy the produce afterwards but we did not feel pressures to do so. After the wine tasting, we visited the nearby village of Castellina and then Monteriggioni- the guide dropped us of and told us when to be back at the pick-up point. All in all we enjoyed this, and would recommend it to others.
We were the only 2 on this tour so they called to change or cancel - we upgraded to add on Siena - so pleased we did. It’s a long day and you start at 0830 at the coach station out of town ( very easy to get to on tram) then visit walled cities, Siena, Saint Gimignano and stayed for a great lunch of cheeses, ham, bread pasta and wines. The wine is very well explained and the lunch was excellent but you see none of the process or cellars, Which was disappointing. Never the less I would recommend the tour. The guide was great and lots of free time in each city.
Our tour guide, Julio, was absolutely fantastic! The driver, Raul, was absolutely fantastic! This tour was worth every penny. The drive was beautiful, all the locations we stopped were breathtaking. The winery lunch was delicious, and really exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed all of the information that Julio gave us and we also enjoyed the quiet alone time we were given to explore each destination. Julio has a difficult task of speaking to people in three languages, he was excellent. Very personable and warm.
A perfect day! Our guide was kind snd the tour very well done and organised. Each place with the exact time for enjoy and not get bored. And the lunch was amazing! I did the trip with my 2 years old son and he also enjoyed it and the guide brought a seat for the van and lunch for him as well. Excellent experience!
The places we visited were incredible. We had enough time at all the locations. The place where we stopped for lunch was lovely. Our guide Julian made everything he could to make everyone feel comfortable and welcomed. His explanations and dedication were much appreciated by all!
