This was the best tour I've done so far! Angela is an amazing guide, full of energy, nice to everyone, professional and she is the best at what she does. We saw amazing places, but I must admit the lunch was out of this world. If you're able, book the tour with lunch included, you won't regret it. My favorite spot was Siena, i wish we had enough time to explore on our own. San Gimignano looks frozen and time and it's pretty. Pisa is beautiful but nothing special. Even with all this, the highlight was Angela! I'm a tour guide from Portugal, so believe me when I say she's the best. Ask for her if possible! Thank you so much again!

The towns and luncheon at the winery were amazing as was our tour guide..... bus had a tire issue and by the time we got to Pisa we couldn't do anything or go in as the places were closed - think we should have been told to go right there first to try and get tickets b4 it closed

Stefono was an amazing tour guide: great knowledge of the area, just the right amount of wit, and he cared about us having a good experience! We also had a local guide in Sienna, who was amazing in her own right. The lunch was absolutely delicious with a variety of wines, good food, and a great view! The whole day was a whirlwind and left you ready for a nap on the drive back to Florence, but it was a fantastic experience well worth the price!
