A busy day that allows you to see Tuscany. The places visited are well chosen. Transportation is comfortable and efficient. The guide very nice and attentive. Two elements that could be improved: we would have liked a little more explanation during the visits and more information on the wines during the tasting.

This was a fantastic day trip. Being in a small group made the trip even better. Teresa was a great tour guide and Giovani kept us safe on the road as our driver, both made us feel very relaxed and looked after. The meal and wine were both great and Sienna and San Gimignano were beautiful places to see.

By far one of the most amazing experiences on our trip throughout Europe. The guides and driver would always ensure we were enjoying our time in the towns and offered assistance with just about anything! The winery itself is amazing and there was more than enough wine for even the more experienced drinkers in our group. Book this if you are able to!
