    The tour is quite nice! Even though it’s is fast the stop in each city, it is possible to get the best in each one! We loved all the 3 cities and also the wine, olive oil and pecorino cheese tastings at Chianti area. We weren’t able to get into the cathedral of Siena due to the short time there. We decide to have lunch at the recommended by the guides (Antonella and Roberta) restaurant and it was awesome!

    The experience was amazing! We took the semi-independent tour option and all of us really enjoyed this tour, loving all the three Tuscan towns we visited. It was well managed by our excellent guides and the bus we travelled in was clean and comfortable. The tour started by visiting Montereggioni, followed by lunch at Siena, afterwards heading to the winery, and ended at San Gimignano (with some excellent gelato at one of the most renowned gelaterias here). The wine tasting experience (which also let us taste some excellent truffle oil and balsamic vinegar) was also really good at the Chianti winery. I would definitely recommend this tour to everyone who wants a glimpse of Tuscany in a day.

    We had such a great time on the tour and would well recommend. We started at Monteriggioni which was a really peaceful and pretty start to the day. Then headed to Siena, we opted out of the tour and saw the sights ourselves. Lunch was offered too at a restaurant which made less stress of finding a place to eat. Then we moved onto the wine tasting which was very interesting for someone like us who didn't know much on wine but also interesting to connoisseurs. Finally we went to San Gimignano which ended the day so well, it was stunning and the gelato was so so tasty! Everything was well timed with enough time at each place. The tour guide was really nice and went round with a really big smile constantly. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to see a bit more of Tuscany with only a couple of days to do it all in!!
