At september 14 morning the bus pick up us (was late like 30min, they arrived from Florance, i guess the traffic was crazy) Had a wonderful day with our tour guides- she was soooo informative and spoke 3languages- first stip Montalcino. Drinking wine, had a little.... little! snack. Than heading to Pienza. Try some pecorino there,goes around the town(we had like 40-50 minutes) :( and travelling to our last stop to Montepulciano. Over all, trip was fine, good weather, nice wines (take food with you or prepare yoursef to eat quick at these towns’ reastaurants) Thanks for everything!
My wife and I enjoyed the experience. If you want a hardcore wine tour, this is not for you. But if you want a tour of Of beautiful Tuscany, see San Gimignano and Montalcino, and check out a couple wineries, this is perfect. We enjoyed both wineries very much and we appreciated that the driver of our tour bus would stop at picturesque locations so we could get great pics of San Gimignano from a distance and the Chianti valley. It was more of a 10 hour tour than 11 but fun nonetheless.
Guides Alberto and Claudia were great. The winery was fun and seeing the three medieval towns was worth it. We also enjoyed the guided tram ride history lesson which was not an advertised option. We knew from other reviews that this wasn’t really as much a food tour as a culture tour. Liked learning about Pope Pius and the Tuscan history. We loved meeting the other people on the tour as well. Only downside was the bus was really hot.
The tour is an all day activity taking you through a wine tasting with Brunello, and then it takes you to the towns of Montalcino, Pienza & Montepulciano. Our Guide Alberto, was nice & knew all the facts etc about all the places. There’s no food included, so make sure you take a sandwich or some fruit in case you will extra peckish. There are however plenty of places in the 3 towns to grab a bite! I would defs recommend this tour!
The tour was wonderful! It was really more about seeing the three towns than about food. The bus was modern and comfortable. The guide was very nice. We were basically left on our own to explore which was very nice. I recommend it.
