Our guide Constantino and driver Max were wonderfully welcoming and fun and knowledgeable. The bus was comfortable though the AC could have been a bit stronger. Constantino kept us all entertained but I also felt he was very informative about the areas we went to. I felt that we spent adequate time in each area and also that we always seemed to beat the other tour buses to the areas...which made for a more quiet and pleasant experience. The winery tour was fun and the food was great. My friend is a vegetarian and she was fulfilled by the meal and got more than she expected. I never felt pressured to buy something. This was a perfect day trip through three important regions of Tuscany...not too long and not too short. It allowed me to briefly experience the areas and know where I might want to explore more if I return to the region. Five stars to Constantino and Max.

Good but not excellent!

Lunch and the wine tasting was great. It was shame we didn’t have enough time to climb the leaning tower of Pisa, nonetheless it was worth it to fit everything in. There were no phone charging/USB ports on the coach, which was not good for a 12 hour day trip! The guide wasn’t great at directing us where exactly to find the most important points when we had free time, nor were locations of toilets ever pointed out. Ended up wasting a good amount of my free time looking for toilets! Overall it was a good trip for seeing everything in a short amount of time, but not excellent due to guide + lack of charging ports on coach.

We had a great time on this day trip. Our guide Martha from CAF Tours was extremely up beat and knowledgeable, along with our driver for the day, Massimo! The day flies by, I would have like a little more time in Siena but I wouldn’t have wanted to cut time anywhere else.

Chianti - easy in one day
Ann_S
, May 2022
Easy way to see Chianti in a day. But be aware of long walks from the parking up to the villages. Unfortunately we were in a bus with dirty windows and a black sun curtain in tje front window so we missed a lot of the fantasic landscaoe because of that.

Marta is a great tour guide

There was more walking than we expected from the description. We were disappointed in the winery that we visited. The reason we give a 5 star is because our tour director, Marta, was fabulous! She was friendly, flexible, and interested in all passengers having the best experience. Very intuitive in what folks needed. Really made our trip a fun day
