After your walking tour, enjoy some free time to enjoy Siena at your own leisure. Move on to San Gimignano, and admire the unique Tuscan landscape as you drive through marvelous scenery surrounded by olive trees, vines and old stone buildings on your way.

After a lot of research booked this day trip. The day was wonderful from start to finish. Lorenzo from Prestige Rent was the perfect guide. Paid a bit extra to go in a smaller group in a mini bus rather than a big group in a coach. This was definitely the right choice. There were 18 of us in the group which was perfect as during the excursion got to chat to the others in the group making the day more fun and memorable. Siena and San Gimignano were both beautiful places to visit. Was nice to leave Florence for the day and see the beauty of the Tuscan countryside in a perfect day trip. Lorenzo guided us through both places with just the right amount of info making the day interesting and not boring like some guides can! The highlight of the day was the Chianti wine tasting … the family run vineyard was amazing. Lunch there was great … nice food accompanied by amazing wine tasting. Had an excellent memorable day.

This tour was well run and made the perfect stops with the perfect amount of time at each stop. Stefano, our driver, and Alessandro, our tour guide, we’re amazing and so patient. Especially because we were traveling with 4 small children. The tour bus was super clean and fairly new (with air conditioning, a must in the Summer!). I highly recommend this tour if you want a taste of Tuscany and only have a day. Also, it was very family friendly.

This tour was a perfect introduction to Tuscany. Our tour guide, Ellie, was very knowledgeable and gave us great recommendations for Siena and San Gimignano. We saw many churches while we were in Italy, but the Siena Cathedral may have been the most impressive. The wine estate was charming. Lunch was tasty and we now have a better understanding of Chianti wines. We appreciated the smaller size of the group.
