Full description
If you’re only in Florence for a few days and want to see more of Tuscany, this budget day tour is the perfect option.

Insanely beautiful trip - definitely recommendable!

Our tour guide Veronca was an incredibly warm, funny person who provided us with enough information and always made for a good atmosphere. The small travel group of 6 people creates a very familiar atmosphere - ideal for getting into conversation with everyone. After visiting the towns and villages, the wine and oil tasting was the perfect end to a really successful trip.
