Fantastic experience !! Alessandro provided solid communication before, during & after our tour. He was on time, provided great information during the different visits and was very attentive to all our questions. As someone that has completed many tours like this, I particularly appreciated the patience with the family (when you have kids!!!) as well as the good driving. Highly recommended !!!

An excellent excursion, Roselle the guide in Siena was lovely and very knowledgable. Francisco our driver was also lovely and very helpful and knowledgable. He met us promptly at the agreed time with no issues, he took us to scenic locations as well with great views of Florence. Great locations, well worth a visit! Five stars all round!

It was an absolute perfect day. Our driver Francisco was polite, and answered all of are questions with good English. Our tour guide Rosella in Siena was also excellent. It is well worth the money if you don't want to deal with the logistics of traveling through Tuscany for the day.

We had a fantastic tour with Sami! It was absolutely amazing, we went on a great wine tasting as well for lunch. Sami was amazing and told us everything we wanted to know about the places we visited and the region as a whole. 5 stars!

The whole tour was fantastic. I would recommend highly.
