Very thorough and organized we managed to cover a lot of ground in one day and the luncheon winetasting. We’re also a lot of fun.

This was a great way to get outside of Florence for a day. We enjoyed the variety of the places we got to see in a day and the tour guides were very personable.

Getting into PISA was already dark, so miss the chance to see the leaning tower of Pisa in board daylight.

Too long of a trip. San gimignano is beautiful and very knowledgeable owner, but be prepared it can get a bit exhausting especially by the time you reach Pisa. We also had crappy rainy weather :/

The itinerary was good as it covers 3 places in a day. There’s not much time given at each location but the towns are generally small so that’s ok. Although I wish the instructions were more detailed , especially how to get to the scenic points or how much time to cater for walk back. Paid for guided tour (no cathedral) in Siena but it was so short. Suggest either to book this trip with or without cathedral. Don’t do guided without cathedral.

This was a wonderful tour allowing you to see the highlights of these towns. Our tour guide, Elisabeth, was friendly and informative. She explained the history of the towns we visited and was accommodating to the travelers in the bus. It was a full 12 hour day but well worth it! These towns are beautiful and rich in history, character, and breathtaking views! Definitely see the cathedral in Sienna because it is astonishing! It’s a must do side trip from Florence!

San Gimignano is stunning. Siena is beautiful. Pisa has a tower. Our guide was wonderful in explaining the history of the area and how the towns grew and prospered… and then fell to the side in the cases of San Gimignano and later Siena.
