This was such great value for money. Alessandro & Riccardo took very good care of us on our trip. It was well organised and kept to a timely schedule. Alessandro (guide) is very enthusiastic and has a wealth of knowledge to share. He also makes some great jokes that keeps the information enjoyable rather than a history lesson. Could not recommend more doing this trip as you really get to see all of Tuscany. The lunch will also cater for dietary needs which is great!

Amazing experience! The transportation was fantastic; the bus was spotless and comfortable. Our tour guide, Alex, was very knowledgeable and professional. Overall the tour was a 10+! The trip's highlight was the second tour lady at the first stop- Analissa (sorry if I misspelled your name). She was fantastic, funny and very knowledgeable! I wish we had more time with her! I suggest staying with the tour the whole time, especially at the first stop, so you can better experience the church. Great locations to visit and explore.
Olivia was an amazing tour guide and really interacted with the group to make you feel very welcomed. Siena was beautiful and the walking tour was very informative and really made me feel like I knew the city better. The lunch at the farm had an unforgettable view!
A super busy day with views and very enjoyable walks. You have time to take souvenir photos and explore each city as you wish. I recommend taking the meal included as it was a great experience and well worth it.
