What people are saying about Pienza

Good easy going relaxing tour of 3 Tuscan cities.

The day trips to 3 Tuscan cities plus a wine tasting visit of a wine producer, visiting his cellar and tasting 4 of his wines, was just great. Do remember this is not food tasting tour, so no lunches are provided, just bread and olive oil and cheese for the wine tasting. Each visit of the 2 old towns Pienza and Montalcino is about 1 hour each and the visit to Montepulciano old town is 1 and half hours to give time to those who opted to go on an optional half hour ride on the tourist train (additional charges to be incurred). Ana our tour guide was great and knowledgeable. She provided all the info you need before we arrive at any of the old towns. Then you have a free and easy self guided walk around town. It was just what I was looking for, as I don't like to be rushed and herded like sheep into towns from one location to another. I prefer to take my own time to explore the towns myself. Our gp was small about 15 of us, & contrary to other previous reviews, our bus was on time.

Good break from the city with a wonderful day.

The trip started in a wonderful medieval mountain top city. The guides on this portion were knowledgeable and funny. Only wish would be that we could stop in all the interesting shops along this route, but another reason to visit. The Abby was nice but a quick diversion to stretch the legs before the meal at the winery. The food was excellent and the wine was good. A quick explanation of the wines made sure that we took something away besides a good meal. The last stop of the renaissance city allowed us to walk around at our leisure for a little less than an hour. While the city had amazing views of the valley and picturesque scenes, there wasn't enough time to visit the two meusems and the shops were a bit overpriced from what we have seen around. The trip was enjoyable though as a great break from the city and seeing the country side of Tuscany.

Our guide , Andy, went above and beyond our expectations!

I highly recommend this tour. We had a fantastic time and learned so much more than we expected about all of Tuscany ! Our only disappointment was not enough time in Montepulciano . There was much time in other areas and zero time for photos or possible wine purchase in Montepulciano which was the most beautiful and well known part of the tour. I would have hoped for a little more time there . If I were to have the opportunity to do it again I would look for a half day tour to the Montepulciano winery on its own . Absolutely stunning and deserves more attention and appreciation.

Good value. Good sites but too long of a day.

Good for wine tasting and sight seeing, but not really a food tour aside from what’s provided during wine tasting and what you buy for lunch. Bus ride was very comfortable. Great driver. Sight seeing/ shopping was a bit short in Montepulciano. Pick up for those originating in Siena was not well explained prior to the trip. Sites were excellent. Wine was particularly good for one of the two wineries. Two guides kept English/ Spanish audience well informed.

Great way to escape the city and explore antient times and wine

Overall it was a great experience! Although not much of a food tour as it was more of a wine tasting and exploration of beautiful antient towns in the hills of Tuscany. Great tour guide as we learned about the difference between wine regions and got to purchase some beautiful wine to drink on our trip. If you don't like big groups then I would shy away because we felt like a hurd of cattle. Still a full day of beauty and adventure and would recommend.
