This experience is a must! Our tour guide Marco was so sweet and nice. The tour started at Sienna to see the Dome di Sienna, had lunch at this vineyard called Poggio Ai Laghi (Lorenzo was so knowledgeable) where we bought real authentic balsamic vinegar and finally made our way to San Gimignano which was soooo amazing! It was surreal and it felt like we were transported back in time. Our last stop was Pisa and since it was winter, there was no more sun (which was expected). I literally had zero expectations about this tour but we had so much fun! Be prepared to walk! Also, it is expected to feel rushed because you're basically trying to fit so many things at one trip, so if you do not like that and if you like staying more time in one place, probably get another tour. All in all, this was one of our trip highlights (esp if you're in a time crunch)! It's a good way to get a feel of each city so that next time you come back, we know which one to spend more time on!

Liked it, but loved the wine tasting more.

I liked the wine tasting. It was short but the hostess explained everything intricately, and was enjoyable. The lunch was delicious, especially with the truffle oil. Great way of marketing and promoting their company. Already looking into their website for more wines. Tour was great, they did their best with the weather conditions for the day.

My most memorable experience of the day trip was visiting San Gimignano. It is truly an enchanting place. I also enjoyed the lunch at the winery and getting to meet people from the bus and listening to their stories of how their vacation to Italy came to be. Our tour guide, Francesco was phenomenal. He was very informative, knowledgeable, he is an excellent speaker, gave clear directions and was very good at keeping the group on schedule. The bus was very comfortable and clean, the driver did a good job as well making sure we were all driven to our destinations safely.

The guides were extremely helpful and patient. After having recent foot surgery I was unable to walk at the same pace as the group. One of the two guides continually walked back to check on me to ensure I was ok.

Too many people on the tour and too many cities in just one day. You spent a lot of time in the bus. Also in Pisa, the bus parks really far away from the place where the Pisa tower is. What you get from the tour is really a very basic taste of these cities.

Wonderful tour. The guides were friendly and informative, and the lunch was great. I highly recommend it. The tour brings you to three places where you cant go within one day.
