Our tour guide Sara was lovely and very knowledgeable about the history of Tuscany. Bravo Sara thank you to our patient driver Gaspare. The tour was jam-packed but we got to visit Siena, San Gimignano and Pisa, ss well as a winery. It was hot and exhausting, but a fun day!! Wear comfortable shoes because you will be walking a lot!!

We booked just the transfer from La Spezia. Excellent coach, driver and guide. It would have saved a lot of worry if the instructions for the meet stated that it was just outside the cruise terminal. Be warned it is a long hot walk from the coach to the tower. (Not the coach companies fault).

Very nice tour to the main sites of the beautiful Tuscany. Both Siena, the wine tasting, and Pisa was great. It was a very professional setup Both the driver and the guide was doing excellent jobs. Be aware that due to large scope the it is a full day tour with fairly short time per location.

I usually do not purchase tours and hesitated to do so. However, this tour was amazing! It was well worth it and we got to see places we would have not seen otherwise. The timing at each places were great and the lunch experience was so much fun.

Guides were very knowledgeable and helpful. Really enjoyed the free time with recommendations of places to go. The lunch at the vineyard was really good and I felt it was worth the money!
