What people are saying about San Gimignano
It was such an amazing time, Claudia was very good with keeping in line with the the schedule and providing us with enough time at every stop to explore on our own. This is a must for all of those who are not familiar with the country at all and are looking for a deep dive into the culture. I cannot say much more than to book the tour, you’ll be in good hands. Especially with Roberto the driver behind the wheel. I slept most of the time I was in the bus, usually I don’t feel safe with drivers, but his skills really put me at ease after the first leg of the tour. Enjoy and don’t forget to give them five stars!!! Thank you both and thank you Italy!!
It is a long day but so worth everything you get to see. The venue at the lunch is beautiful. Our guide Livinia was so informative and enthusiastic. I met some very nice people on the tour. Overall just a great experience!
