This activity will end right where it started.
Depart from central Florence and venture into the Tuscan countryside, a beautiful landscape marked by olive groves, green hills and cypress trees.

Arrive first in Siena, one of Tuscany’s crown jewels. Follow a local guide on a walking tour through the city, passing charming backstreets as well as Piazza del Campo, the celebrated main square that hosts the Palio horse races twice a year. Learn about Siena’s contrades, or districts, which each have individual legacies, traditions and anthems. Before departing, sample a surprise local specialty.

Continue to the hilltown of San Gimignano, known for its impressive towers. Relax with some time to roam the streets independently, popping into local shops or admiring the medieval architecture.  

Afterward, travel to a Chianti winery to soak up the sunset while eating dinner. Weather permitting, take a seat outdoors and feast on a 3-course meal of authentic Tuscan dishes with wine.

After a day of food, wine and sightseeing, you will be returned to central Florence.

A truly valuable experience!

What an amazing tour! Our guide Brando was fantastic. He shared valuable knowledge and did a great job of helping us understand the history and the importance of each of the places that we attended. He even took some extra time and showed us the city at night and it was absolutely beautiful.

LONG DAY!

We felt we spent way too much time in the van. The two guides were definitely knowledgeable and friendly. However, the driver (one of the guides) drove WAY TOO FAST ON THE Highway. It was downright scary. 3 of us commented on the driving, she never slowed down. Tour started at 2:00 and we had a one hour drive ahead of us. We picked up sandwiches to eat in the van on our way and we were told we couldn't eat them. Dinner was scheduled for 8:00 p.m. There was no mention anyway that we would not be able to have a snack or eat in the van. For the price of 170 Euro we didn't feel it was worth it.

Siena and San Gimignano are "Must See Destinations"

A long tour to some very worthwhile hill top places. The historic Medieval towns of Siena and San Gimignano (the second "g" is silent) should not be missed. San G. is small enough to tour without a guide but Siena is larger, more complex and comes alive with the walk around tour narrated by one of the town's proud and knowledgeable citizens. Wish I could remember our guide's name. She was excellent. Comfortable late model Mercedes tour vans. Our driver Andreas was competent, well informed and offered entertaining observations about drivers we encountered along the way. I was co-pilot. Diamonde Winery was lovely but small so tour was cursory. We always buy wine to thank the host for their hospitality. At 32 Euro it should be good. Dinner was fine but too much like home. Lacked that special Italian restaurant dining out appeal we came to expect after a week in Italy. Perhaps if it was served in the Diamonde restaurant and from the menu instead of a back room set up for tours it would have impressed.

We loved, loved, loved, loved this tour! Started with a guided walking tour of Siena - just beautiful and the guide was so interesting and informative. The history of this town is wonderful! Next we visited San Gimignano and it was again wonderful, such a beautiful part of Tuscany. Last stop was a vineyard and dinner (with wines selected to accompany each course). An absolutely wonderful way to spend 8 hours in this gorgeous part of Italy!

Not what you pay for

Let me start by our 2 guides were great. Then van was noisy we could barely hear our driver. No cooler for cold water. The dinner was at a lovely little vineyard with terrible service and food. We were told cheese plate, pasta (lasagna mentioned) and desert. When we requested “no pork” what we got was farro, string bean soup with a poached egg in it and biscotti with a shot glass of vermouth. After much discussion with the kitchen staff by our guide we ordered from the menu. My flan was frozen solid. Don’t pay for dinner on this trip.

Everything was good. However, it should include getting into the Cathedral in Siena or at least allowing time to people to see it. There was enough time to accommodate that.

What a lovely day we had! There were only 8 of us and the tour of Siena was wonderful. I would have liked a little more time in San Gimignano. Our dinner was just fabulous - the food and the experience! Highly recommend!
