Great way to see a decent amount of Tuscana attractions in one day...
David_V, Apr 2024
Overall, I recommend this tour as a good way to see a decent amount of Tuscany in one long day. I also recommend choosing the lunch/wine tasting option because you will want to eat at some point so you might as well make it interesting. The whole program is very catered to tourists but I don't think that matters. It is well designed to get you to a lot of attractions in a short amount of time. I didn't feel rushed but some people might. It's a good way to get to Pisa for a short amount of time with some great views along the way.
Too much bus Vs. Visit time
Rosa_O, Apr 2024
12 hours of bus is too much. We would suggest skipping San Gimignano so we had more time in Siena and Pisa. For example, in Pisa we only had one hour so we couldn't go up the tower which is the main reason to go to Pisa. The wine tasting was ok, not great food but acceptable. The guide was very basic in the information shared.
Good Service
JAMESJ_F, Apr 2024
Ana, the tour guided was excellent. Lucas drives very carefully and keep the bus very clean. The bus doesn’t have internet as said in the tour description
Wonderful experience!
Cassandra_E, Apr 2024
The tour was well organized and guide Ana was approachable, knowledgeable, and kind. The three stops had their own unique history and characteristics
Tuscany high points

Not good for people with bad health
JasbirSingh_S, Apr 2024
Bus park to far away from meeting site compare to other tour buses. Bus drop out to far and elderly person had problem climbing hills
A definite tour to take, highly recommended
Isabelle_P, Apr 2024
Filippa was awesome and Mario our driver was excellent driving for 450km. Although quite a long trip, we were given full attention throughout the full journey.
great tour and even better tour guide
Andrew_W, Apr 2024
the tour guide "felipia, and driver mario "were wonderful. the trip was super. we could have used more time in Pisa to explore and see the buildings.
Tuscany tour
Jill_A, Apr 2024
The views and the tour guys and bus driver were great. I felt liked we were not in some the locations long enough as the bus was late and it through the day off.
Tuscan Countryside Journey
StephenDudley, Apr 2024
What a great day this tour was! Constantino was an excellent tour guide and Luigi drove us around safely! All of our stops were amazing and we learned a lot about the history. Lunch at the winery was delicious and included a first course (cheese and meats), pasta, and a small dessert along with a wine tasting. Would highly recommend this tour to anyone looking for a full day of activity.
Day Trip
Jeanette_O, Apr 2024
The trip was worth it just for the Siena cathedral. It rained most of the day, so that made the trip a little more difficult. I would have liked to have more information on San Gimignano, which felt like a stop solely for gelato.
Great tour and experience!
Edward_G, Apr 2024
The tour staff was very accommodating and helpful. The tour guides provided excellent service and have great organizational skills.
Worth it!
Michelle_W, Apr 2024
Definitely do the lunch add on! Was a great time. It can feel a bit rushed at the stops but it has made us want to return to these cities to enjoy more of them.
Awesome tour and guide!...
Horacio_L, Mar 2024
Awesome tour and guide! I can’t recall her name, but she was from the Czech Republic. She was very knowledgeable and professional. She made sure everybody was comfortable and informed. We enjoyed seeing so much of Italy, and all the information that was given.
San Gimignano was my...
Carol_S, Mar 2024
San Gimignano was my favourite, it was magical. Everything I pictured an Italian Tuscan town to look like. And we loved the wine tasting. It was a wonderful day. Our guide Sebastian was very knowledgeable and impressive looking after such a big group.
Great, organized trip
evaruolo, Mar 2024
We loved Sienna. The driver and guide Iacopo (Jacob) were wonderful. We had a lot of rain I. The beginning of the trip and the guide was great at navigating us to each destination as the bus was far from the towns.
Great tour, long day!
ThomasRouleau, Mar 2024
This was a great trip to see, but it was a very long day we left at 7am and did not return until 8pm, many sights to see and the food and wine pairing was amazing. The only thing i might suggest for the tour is to maybe go to Pisa and the tower first, by the time we got there it was closing time at the tower. But the views in Siena and San Gimignano and obviously Pisa were amazing, so much to see.
Long day
Anne_E, Mar 2024
Overall the tour delivered on what it set out for. However it is a very very long day with a lot of walking and many hills. Our tour group was very large and the tour guide spoke in English and Spanish for the mixed group. She was very knowledgeable and switched easily between the languages. However that meant there was a lot of talking for parts of the bus eide. After a longish bus ride we arrived in Sienna for our first stop and there we felt rushed. There were very few toilet options with such a large group. We were not able to relieve ourselves until after we went to the cathedral. Every toilet location has either a fee (0.50EUR) to use the facility or was in a business and you needed to buy something to use it. The tour in the cathedral was very good and we got a lot of information from the guide but because it was crowded we had to move among a lot of people. The next stop was for lunch and wine. Again the group was too big however they did a great job serving so many lunches and telling us about the wine. Here too we felt rushed once lunch was over. We then went to San Gimignano which was beautiful. There was a steep walk to get in and we had some free time to walk around and take some panoramic photos. The last stop was Pisa. Again a bit of a walk then free time to take our pictures. Then the long bus ride back to Florence. At the end we asked our guide how to find the taxi stand and her directions were so unclear we went in circles for about 30 mins. At the end of a very long and tiring day this was extremely frustrating. It really needed to be more clear where to get a taxi. Overall the tour was nice however in the future we would opt for a shorter day with one less stop with a smaller group.
Great Day tour from Florence.
Allan_D, Mar 2024
Great day trip from Florence. Was raining heavily in Siena but it still was a neat little city to visit. The lunch stop at the winery was actually very good. Not much of a wine drinker but they have a couple that we actually likes. Food was good. San Gimignano was beautiful but quite a walk. And to end the day a quick visit to Pisa. Didn’t have enough time to tour the tower or cathedral but it was still a site to see. Our tour guide was great. She was so knowledgeable and get the tour moving with information and never left you out there to try to figure things out on your own. Good job! And compliments to our bus driver Mario. Not sure how he navigated that huge bus thru all The sharp curves and tight squeezes. He was a pro for sure! Overall, a great tour. Would recommend.
Excellent organised tour
Lynn_L, Mar 2024
An amazing fun filled day, great value and a great way of seeing different parts of Italy. The wine pairing was an excellent experience in San Gimignano, Martina and Gabriel were fantastic guides. A very well organised trip 👍
