EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

GET THE BEST OF SIENA WITH THE HELP OF YOUR TOUR LEADER

Our day starts in central Florence, where you’ll meet your tour leader and private driver for the day – or maybe two drivers. We never use vehicles larger than 8-person capacity on this tour, as minibuses and cars allow us to drive you right up to the main square in Siena. If your group is split, your tour leader will take it in turns to ride in each vehicle, ensuring you all get the background you need to really enjoy your day.

Before we head for the hills we have a special surprise for you. We’ll take a short spin up to Piazzale Michelangelo, on the other side of the Arno, for the best view in all of Florence. Then we’re on the road and off to Tuscany.

The first stop on our Tuscany tour from Florence is beautiful Siena. Miraculously spared the bombing of WWII, Siena is an incredible example of medieval town planning and architecture. Your tour leader will introduce you to the city on a short, guided walk and give you a bit of background; including Piazza del Campo, the town square where Siena’s historic Palio horse racing contest still takes place every year.

How you spend your time now is up to you! Your tour leader will give you some tips and will also hand you tickets to visit the Cathedral on your own. We really recommend you go inside – as beautiful as it is from outside, the Cathedral is even more astounding inside.

N.B.: The Siena Cathedral is closed to tourists on Sundays. If you visit on a Sunday we regret to inform you that this option is not open to you.

ENJOY LUNCH AND WINE TASTING ON AN AUTHENTIC CHIANTI FARM

Of course no Tuscany tour would be complete without a visit to the wine region! Famous for its wine of the same name, Chianti is a beautiful area full of rolling hills and picture-perfect farmhouses. It’s at one of these postcard spots we stop next! You will enjoy a tour of the farm, vineyards and wine cellars, before settling in for lunch and a guided wine tasting, included in the price of the tour.

What you eat will depend on the season. Tuscan cuisine is famously linked to its produce, using the best and freshest ingredients for the most hearty, delicious dishes. This is Italian food at its finest.

OFF-ROAD ADVENTURES AT A HISTORIC TUSCAN TOWN

Then it’s on to the little town of San Gimignano, so pretty and architecturally significant it’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site. As you walk its streets in search of Tuscan delicacies to bring home, take the time to soak in the atmosphere and keep an eye out for the famous tower houses; a beautiful legacy of medieval planning. Those inclined should climb the city’s campanile for the other best view in Tuscany.

From start to finish the emphasis of our day trip from Florence is on indulgence: Indulge in stunning scenery, delicious wines and lazy strolls on our all-inclusive Tuscan adventure. We’ve taken care of all the details so all you have to worry about is how much Chianti wine you can fit in your suitcase.

We had a very nice guide , Anna, and a very nice driver as well! We had 6 people on our tour and it was quite enjoyable to see beautiful Tuscany in a minivan. We will recommend and use Walks of Italy again, thank you!!
It was a wonderful day and both the driver and guide were professional, friend and knowledgable. Loved that it was such a small group (5). This made it more intimate and I think everyone gained more from the day. Great winery!
Fun Full Day!!! Awesome experience at the Winery and Lunch was excellent!!
Excellent and informative. Great lunch and wine tasting with three of our group of 6 accommodated as vegetarians. Much wine and food included in the price, much more than expected. Laura was great!
An absolutely beautiful tour brilliantly planned out to spend time in each place at the best time of day for each city. I loved it and would do it again on my next trip to Florence!
My husband and I had an amazing time on this tour. It was a fun and beautiful day! Claudia was wonderful! Highly recommend this tour.
A great tour, different than the others. Anna was wonderful and a joy to spend the day with. Siena was fantastic and traveling to San Gimignano was much more interesting that I originally thought it would be. We look forward to using Walks of Italy on future travel.
Claudia was the best! It was a very relaxing and beautiful day! We would do it again.
Claudia was an excellent guide - knowledgeable, engaging, personable, gun.
Our guide Claudia was fun, the countryside and towns were so charming, and the food at the winery was absolutely delicious. A wonderful trip. I would just recommend a stop for a few minutes so we could take photos of the breathtaking scenery. It was a wonderful day.
San Gimignano was lovely! The food and wine was also great
Lovely day and Claudia was a wonderful guide!
Great tour, lots of information and fun!
We had a wonderful time!!! Only thing I would consider changing would be to add another 30 minutes or more in Siena for some wandering or shopping. Thank you!
We loved Eleanora and the day trip from Tuscany. It was certainly a highlight of our time in Italy! Eleanora is fantastic and knows her history!!
Everything was wonderful. Our guide was excellent. She is a jewel. Thank you.
Anna was the best guide ever! She was delightful and informative the entire time. Thank you, the Youngblood and Caldwell Families
The day was perfect and well planned. The tour guide and driver could not have been more helpful. Would highly recommend.

Anna is an outstanding guide!
Almost word for word, the same comments, above, about Simone also apply to Nebbo. We would happily take another tour of Tuscany with this wonderful gentleman.
Almost word for word, the same comments, above, about Simone also apply to Nebbo. We would happily take another tour of Tuscany with this wonderful gentleman.
The tour was everything we could have hoped for, and worth every penny. Claudia was a wonderful guide. She was friendly and informative. Our hosts at the winery, went above and beyond. Allowed us to sample some items that were not planned for inclusion, and the lunch was fantastic.
Laura McDonald was an incredible guide and the driver was safe and educated as well. The winery that we visited was AMAZING! The day was absolutely perfect. We liked Laura so much that we booked the Dine around Florence with her!! She is a gem!
5 Star all the way!! Oscar was outstanding, the van was most comfortable and the itinerary excellent. We would highly recommend.
Amazing tour, thoroughly enjoyed all of it. Thankyou!
We were delighted with the tours. The service was excellent, the weather was very kind, and we would recommend your company.
We LOVED the Tuscany tour! The Siena Cathedral was breathing, and the winery was delicious and beautiful. Our tour guild loved to talk, but she gave that true Italian feel. 150% recommend this tour!
Just excellent! We wish we had a little bit more free time for shopping in the small towns....but, that's ok. Claudia was wonderful and the driver was also excellent and very friendly!
Our guide was wonderful. She's exceptionally knowledgeable & very approachable. Very pleasant day.
Splendid tour. Our guide, I believe her name was Iris, was excellent. The lunch at Saint’Appiano was very good as well. I would have liked a bit more time in Siena to do some shopping. Maybe cut out the stop above Florence (it’s just an overlook) or just start a bit earlier?
Perfect day. Best day trip we attended.
Awesome! Claudia was very knowledgeable. We had a great time!
Wonderful tour of Tuscany, it did not disappoint! I enjoyed the smaller tour group. Everything from the towns visited to the lunch at the winery was outstanding. I would highly recommend!
Julia was excellent. She made everyone feel welcome and really brought a taste Italy to the group.
Amazing, had a wonderful day
Ismael was a great tour guide and very informative! I would recommend Walks of Italy to anyone traveling to Italy!
Beautiful day!!! Loved lunch in the farmhouse Wish we had more winery stops
We had a great day!
Our guide was Iris - not Claudia. Our driver and guide were excellent.
We had a wonderful day and really enjoyed Anna's informative and fun company thank you

What a wonderful tour! Would have been nice to spend another hour in Siena but the day was amazing!
Very satisfied with the trip, would recommend to a friend.
Gulia was a wonderful guide. This trip was a great way to see a bit of the Italian countryside without the hassle of having to rent your own car or try to find a place to park it once you got to your destination. Lunch at the winery was delicious.
We had the best time with Claudia; she is outstanding! She made the trip warm, fun and interesting (also thanks to our drivers). I highly recommend this tour and using Walks of Italy (small groups, local guides, relevant and engaging conversation).
The Tuscany Day Trip was an excellent itinerary, brilliant day
Laura was a great guide. We really enjoyed the day.
Lunch and chianti talk were excellent in particular
This was our favorite tour. The vineyard was amazing. Great food and presentation of the wines. Our Guide was great, very personable.
Julia was a phenomenal guide!
Our trip into Tuscany was wonderful, especially the wine tasting. Siena was interesting, but we did not have enough time in San Gimignano. Our guide was excellent and the tour size worked very well for us.
We had an amazing time. My wife and I were concerned that we wouldn't have enough time in each location to do the things we wanted to do, but it was perfect.
Claudia was our guide. She was excellent.
Very enjoyable and relaxing day! Beautiful sights and our guide was fantastic!
Very good tour with Laura. I think she took a few photos and a video of us at the wine tasting table, and my wife and I were wondering if she could share them with us? Thank you!
wonderful day
Lunch was mouthwatering , organized , and Anna Maria is very passionate about her work amd showed us the best of Tuscany notwithstanding the duration of the trip
Annamaria was a wonderful guide--knowledgeable, professional, and genuinely invested in the wellbeing of the group. A perfect day exploring Sienna!
Claudia was my guide, not Annamaria. She was wonderful, I had a great time!!
Guila was fantastic! Very knowledgeable, upbeat, and had a passion for everything! Wouldn't change a thing!
Annamarie was really great! The driver was nice and we enjoyed the entire experience!
Our can broke down due to a flat tire. The tour did as much as she could to make us feel comfortable. I felt that something should have been done for the 13 customers who lost an hour of tour time!
Claudia was a wonderful tour guide and very accommodating!
This Walks of Italy tour was incredible! The guide and driver were extremely friendly and helpful. My sister and I enjoyed the small group in the van and had a great time seeing the beautiful Tuscany!
Ana Maria was absolutely fantastic. She shared excellent insights and tips and was a joy to spend time with during the day. I would highly recommend the tour
Oscar was awesome and the whole tour was fantastic from start to finish!! The farmhouse we went to was out of this world amazing!! Would definitely do this tour again. Thank you so much Oscar for a great day!
Very nice introduction to some beautiful towns.
Wonderful tour!
Loved it!
Great lunch and winery visit led by a wine lover! The time to explore Siena and San Gimignano is plenty. Group is small, car very comfortable!
A very enjoyable and informative day that was well organised with no delays.
Highlight of our time in Florence for sure! Laura was terrific...the food at the winery amazing (we may never eat tirimasu again, as how can any others compare?!), the winery owner gracious and the wines delicious!
Very enjoyable day, thank you.
Laura was fantastic. Very knowledgeable. Visited beautiful places. Although it was a long day out, it all felt very relaxed with enough free time at each stop to be able to enjoy the places visited. Would definitely recommend.
Excellent guide(julia)and driver.wine tasting very good but main dish disappointing and basic.
Annamarie was the best guide! She made this tour all the more special. This tour is a MUST if going to Florence!!! We loved it!
Our family really enjoyed this tour. One of the highlights of our Italy trip. Our guide was very knowledgeable and informative.
Anna was amazing! We were very lucky to have a small group.
Another lovely tour. Very well organized. Annamaria was delightful and also great at giving us tips about where to eat in Florence. I loved the lunch and wine tasting and thought the stops in both Siena and San Gimignana were beautiful and just the right amount of time to explore and enjoy.
The best. Couple the scenery with Annamarie and you have a winner. The choice of winery was also impressive because the family was so wonderful and inviting.
The tour was amazing. Our Guide was great, the sites were amazing and lunch at the local winery was unbelievable. Walks of Italy was well organized, and the tour was as expected per the description.
Wonderful tour, couldn't have been better. Iris was informative and entertaining.
Our guide was so personable and fun. The lunch and wine tasting was superb. I couldn't believe how much wine we tasted! The wine was excellent. Great small group tour. Also the gelato at an award winning gelateria was like no other! Delicious.
It was a great tour! Iris, our guide, was very informative and managed to split up between the two vans. The wine tasting was great and we ate a wonderful lunch outside in the beautiful Tuscan area. Our driver, Luca, kept us entertained in betweeen Iris's guiding. Would do it again.
Great day out our guide Claudia was fabulous very entertaining lunch at the winery was superb
This is a truly excellent tour. The day was thoughtfully planned out. The van was comfortable. The food/wine was great. We were able to have a bit of so many different activities!!
My husband & I thorough enjoyed all our tours. The guides were great! Their knowledge of their subjects was mind blowing and truly made whatever we were looking at come to life. They made our trip even more memorable. We would not hesitate to recommend Walks of Italy to our friends!
Kiara was an amazing host. Loved the walks of the cities and the hospitality in the Vineyard. She was knowledgeable and charismatic.
We loved our tour of Siena, San Gimignano, and the Chianti area. The wine tasting and lunch were wonderful. Our guide Anna was terrific and made the trip truly special.
Annamaria was an excellent guide with a lot of patience and knowledge and her English was magnifio! Highly recommend both the tour itself and AnnaMaria.
Claudia was amazing. We would happily spend an afternoon with her anytime.
Claudia was fantastic. There were so many of us she had to split her time between the 2 vans and she did an excellent job. It was her birthday and she was working that day but it made it special for the group. I can't say enough good things about her.
This trip was every thing we had hoped it would be. Claudia was wonderful and a lot of fun. We would have liked more of a tour of the farm and winery, but the dinner and wine tasting was terrific. Loved our visit to San Gimignano as well. All around a lovely day!
Anna was excellent and we enjoyed the day very much.
Great tour! Wish there was a little less driving and more time to see the sights but it was beautiful! Annamarie was very knowledgeable and a great guide!
Loved this experience!
It was wonderful. Such a compact group of lovely people. We got to see everything we should see in all places. It would be even better if we could have had lunch in the garden at the vineyard. We really had great time.
Claudia and Alessandro were fantastic, warm friendly and went out of their way to make our day relaxing, memorable and enjoyable....lunch was a very pleasant surprise
Loved the tour!
We had an awesome experience! Had so much fun with our guide Laura. Thank you for everything. 😊 Eve And Lourdes Mongrut Avila
We had an amazing time in all of the stops and would recommend for anyone going to Italy!
Claudia was excellent with her knowledge and interpersonal skills. We enjoyed it very much. Thanks, Frank and Maria
Laura was extremely knowledgeable and answered all of our questions fully. She went above and beyond.
It was on of our best experiences in Italy. The lady who was our guide was very nice and knowledgeable and Our driver Marco was also a great gentleman. Thank you very much, we enjoyed every minute of it.
Great guide. Lots of great travel tips too. Enjoyable day regardless of unavoidable mistakes not under her control.
This was a totally enjoyable trip. Our guide Claudia was so much fun and the towns were beautiful and the wine tasting delicious!
Great tour!
Great time at the winery and especially the locations you took us. My wife absolutely loved Siena.
One of our favorite days in Italy, both our tour guide Laura and driver Francisco were fabulous. Would do again in a heartbeat!
We loved our tour. Laura was fantastic!
Great tour and great guides! Thank you for a very enjoyable day.
This was a wonderful escape from Florence for me. Everything about the day with Claudia was brilliant. Definitely recommend.
Claudia was so wonderful! She made our day relaxing and fun. We loved having her as our guide!
An unforgettable day in Tuscany! The tour was a truly unique experience with a perfect itinerary for anyone visiting Florence.
An excellent tour and guide! Many thanks.
The first winery was excellent - the food, wine, and educators were awesome. The second winery was rushed and not to the same level of excellence. Annamarie was very friendly and well informed. She made the trip even more delightful.
Anamarie was an excellent, fun, helpful and kind guide. We also really liked our driver, Francesco. We loved the two wineries and the two town visits. It was also great to see the beautiful countryside.
Absolutely loved the first winery. The second winery visit was a little late in the day. Both guides were terrific and we really liked our experience. Thank you. LaForrest Campbell
Excellent day thank you !
Claudia was great, very informative and easy to understand. We had a great time, met some new people, and enjoyed delicious wine, food, and of course the beautiful sights of Tuscany!
Wonderful tour and food. The group size was perfect and the ride to tuscany was comfortable. Highly recommend this tour.
This tour was the most excellent!!
I would have loved to spent more time in exploring both Siena and San Gimignano, but also under that we were on a tight schedule.
Great!
Guilia was fabulous. Guissepi was a great driver. Tour was a great value when u consider all the miles u go/wine/food and all u see in each town. Food/wine and views were spectacular. Great tour. Thank you
Absolutely lovely day. Laura was friendly and informative. The time at the winery, which included lunch, was amazing (and I don't drink). I would definitely look into another tour with Walks in the future.
Lovely tour. Our guide was great as was our driver. We ate and drank more than I thought we would! A great way to see a snapshot of Tuscany in a day.
Our tour guide, Laura, knew her surroundings and made the tour very interesting with information. She conducted herself very professional but still being friendly. Thank You
Loved our tour with Julia!
We had a fantastic time on our tour! It was well organized and our guide was fantastic - she shared great information and was welcoming and warm. I would recommend this tour and company to anyone traveling to Italy. The small group size was perfect!
A happy relaxed day A great guide and wonderful wine tasting
Anna and our driver were both great! We enjoyed the tour very much. We would recommend Walk of Italy tours, have been on three now, all very good.
Driver and guide were excellent! A great combination! Guide transferred from car to car allowing both groups the advantages of the tour for all. Especially enjoyed the first wine tasting. Second tasting highlight was the beautiful views. Thank you to both guide and driver for an excellent tour!
We would highly recommend this trip to our friends and family.
The overall trip was great, mostly because of the great group of people we went with.
My husband and I loved it! We only wished for more time in Siena. Other than that, our guide was fabulous, The sites, lunch, wines, van, and our fellow tour mates all made for a perfect day. I would highly recommend this tour.
This was a great day trip. We had a fantastic time & the organisation & selection of sites/activities was terrific. Anna was also very good & helped make this a really good travel experience. The transport was also extremely comfortable and the close access to key sites very much appreciated.
Our guide did a great job & the driver was very safe.
It was more than what we expected of our tour! We had a grand time. Everything was great!
Best Tour Ever!! Anna was amazing and so was our driver. Spending the day with them was so nice. The winery Poggio Amorelli was great and the owners and staff were welcoming, the food was delicious. This tour was very well done.
Although for some reason I was expecting more walking throughout the day and more time in the town Siena & San Gimignano, it was a great day & tour. The food and wine were fabulous! Thank you.
Anna number 2 was also amazing. Wonderful personality very fun and knowledgeable. I would reccomend both tours.
The tour was worth every penny. Our guide was amazing and had great information on any questions we had. We got to see things any standard trip to Tuscany wouldn't provide and that made it so wonderful!
Laura was wonderful! We loved the area and felt like we got a true taste of the Tuscany region. Would recommend this to anyone!
Was good tour.
We enjoyed that the tour guide talked about the way of life and culture of different neighborhoods as we explored them. She was friendly and informative and a great person to guide us through Tiscany.
Our guide was fantastic !! She was from Sienna and knew a lot about the history of all the areas we visited. The tour of Chianti and the winery was amazing. We loved the interactions with the other people of the tour. Always had a little free time tom explore for a bit . Loved the day
We had an incredible day exploring Tuscany with Eleanora- she did an excellent job both guiding us on foot through the villages, and providing lots of information during the driving portions. We thoroughly enjoyed the wine tasting lunch and the amazing views.
Laura was great, did a very good job all around.
Claudia was fantastic! She was so friendly, knowledgable and obviously loved her job. She (and Alessandro our driver) absolutely made our day. I would recommend this tour and especially Claudia to anyone. Thanks again so much!

Our guide (Anna I believe) was fantastic as were the drivers, who were sure to point out things on the drive. The places we visites were excellent.
We had a wonderful day and enjoy all the activities.
Loved Anna she was so down to earth and we felt like a family spending the day together. Food and wine were amazing. Will be back to do this again
You should end the day at a bakery or a Gelateria rather than another winery.
We really enjoyed this tour. Claudia was excellent. She was very informative and fun, more like a friend than someone we had never met before. Good group of people. Excellent winery for lunch.
We thoroughly enjoyed the trip . Siena was amazing and Clauida's presentation of the Palio was awesome .Our appreciation was enhanced when Claudia showed us the race on her mobile . It helped to understand the flavor and emotion of the race just held recently .
We had a wonderful day, a highlight of our time in Florence. I liked the way that food, wine and history of the region were presented as a package. Many thanks to Laura and Stefano.
Anna was fabulous! This was the best tour out of our 10 day Italy trip! I could move to Tuscany! I plan on bringing my boyfriend here in the future!
Giulia was excellent in delivering to us a unique experience.
It was an excellent day with lovely experiences. Giulia was very friendly, entertaining and knowledgable. Our driver was also excellent and gave us a very smooth ride and delivered us safely home.
We enjoyed the tour very much. Thank you!
This was a great tour. We had a wonderful time. Planning on doing this tour again next year. Loved Tuscany
We really enjoyed the tour! The guide was terrific as well. Our only suggestion would be to add more time to see the church in Sienna. 30 minutes is not enough.
Excellent day out, good mix of history, food and wine. Valentina looked after us very well, very relaxed and professional.
It was great. A wonderful day & Giulia was fantastic. No complaints.
Anna was a fabulous tour guide
This tour is a MUST!! What an amazing trip! Definitely got our money's worth. Our tour guide was fantastic, and the tour through Tuscany was so beautiful. Great wine, great food, awesome trip!! I would recommend Walks of Italy to everyone

Julia was just wonderful. She was friendly, knowledgeable, funny, and we loved the tour.
This was an excellent trip. Very well organized with a fantastic itinerary. The guide was also amazing. The only downside was having to share her between two vans.

Eleanora was great! Perfect balance of information and fun. We loved the towns, the Siena Duomo, the winery. Just a wonderful day!
Excellent trip into the countryside. Julia and Francesco were wonderful hosts. Would highly recommend.
I lived my one day tour of Tuscany with Claudia. She was knowledgeable, easy going and fun. The food and wine that were included was wonderful and the transportation was comfortable. As a solo traveler I was especially pleased with the small group size. Bravo!
Giulia was FANTASTIC! She took every opportunity to make our day full of experiences. We did not feel rushed or pushed at all and we spent the perfect amount of time at each stop. Couldn't have been a better day. Will recommend.
Incredible! Claudia was a great guide and the driver was excellent as well. We were given enough information, but not so much that it was overwhelming. The wine tasting and foods were fabulous too. A great day trip.

Laura was great...had less to do than other guides.
Anna was excellent an we were happy to have her as our guide because she was a true Florentine. Very personable, kind and passionate about the subject matter and tour. The only suggestion would be to provide ear phones and headset.
Julian was fun and we loved the wineries and the driver was great. Wish we had a little more time to explore both cities.
Wonderful day, nothing was rushed and touring with Claudia was like going with a friend of the family. We had a memorable time. Thank you!
Claudia was interesting, knowledgable and fun. She did not ride in our van but Frank(?) , the driver did a great job of keeping us informed along the way. Loved the small tour size.
Absolutely the best tour I've had while living in Firenze!
My guide is again very good.
i enjoyed tour. lovely
i enjoyed tour. lovely
I thoroughly enjoyed this tour as I was able to gain an insight and appreciation of traditional Italian cuisine. Anna was a knowledgeable tour guide and showed us amazing places. Highly recommended.
Amazing. Well worth the 10 hours. Incredible lunch. Scrambled eggs and lasagna were extraordinary. The guided were great.
Annamaria was very nice. I would have like a little more history about the areas as we went along however we realize that she wasn't a certified tour guide. Our van broke down shortly after we left Florence and we were extremely impressed that they were able to get a replacement driver so quickly.
Claudia was fabulous and kept us entertained the whole time. Very knowledgeable and approachable to ask any questions. She was so much fun!
Anna was a great guide with a lot of knowledge, passion and friendly manner. I had a wonderful day with her.
This tour was wonderful. All stops were a great experience! Our guide was very pleasant and amiable.
This trip was wonderful! I absolutely loved the farmhouses we visited, and lunch was delicious! I wish we had a little more time to spend in San Gimignano but other than that, the trip was really great.
Amazing! Really enjoyed Casanova Winery... great wine, fabulous food!
This tour was more then I was expecting. The first winery we went to were we had the full course meal was incredible. We will never forget that tour and the places we got to see along with the food and wine we drank. The second winery definitely was not as enjoyable, but still good.
The tour was terrific and our guide was great.
This was our second tour with walks of Italy on our vacation. It didnt dissappoint, it actually was even better than our first tour. What a great day it exceded my expectations. Our tour guide was delightful and very knowledgable. This tour was the highlight of my Italy vacation.
Great tour and the guide was excellent She was very attentive and gave us an awesome day in Tuscany
Great trip. Thoroughly enjoyed the countryside, the towns and the lunch!
Very personable and friendly guide. Loved Siena grocery store and bakery visits
We had a delightful day, exceeding expectations. I especially enjoyed little touches like a walk through the local market in Siena and the fabulous lunch at the organic farm.
Great tour! Julia was very informative. Attentive to group making sure everyone was together and didn't get lost. Lots of fun and will definitely recommend this tour.
Excellent one day small bus tour from Florence. Our guide, Guilia, was fantastic. A great mixture of relaxed information and free time to explore. Wine tastings and lunch with wonderful Tuscan views were really appreciated. Good value for money.
The tour was excellent, the places that we visited amazing! it was everything We expected and more. Ana was great We love her personality. We really liked the size of the group, it felt like a family. We will recommended to our friends and family! Thank you Ron and Martha Clinkenbeard
Excellent tour guide and tour really gave us a good understanding of the region in a limited amount of time The guide loves her work and the driver was also excellent for the difficult driving conditions wish we had more time to do other tours
Julia was great!
Ismael was a great tour guide, the Wineries we visited were fantastic with Casanova being the best!

We had a very nice guide , Anna, and a very nice driver as well! We had 6 people on our tour and it was quite enjoyable to see beautiful Tuscany in a minivan. We will recommend and use Walks of Italy again, thank you!!
It was a wonderful day and both the driver and guide were professional, friend and knowledgable. Loved that it was such a small group (5). This made it more intimate and I think everyone gained more from the day. Great winery!
Fun Full Day!!! Awesome experience at the Winery and Lunch was excellent!!
Excellent and informative. Great lunch and wine tasting with three of our group of 6 accommodated as vegetarians. Much wine and food included in the price, much more than expected. Laura was great!

An absolutely beautiful tour brilliantly planned out to spend time in each place at the best time of day for each city. I loved it and would do it again on my next trip to Florence!
Loved every moment of the tour. The small group was excellent, and would've hated having a bigger group. Anna and the driver were so friendly, and knowledgable about the area and more. At the end of the tour and once they dropped us off I felt like they were wanting a tip by hand movements and more.

Driver and guide were both friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. They seemed genuinely interested in making sure we had a good experience.
My husband and I had an amazing time on this tour. It was a fun and beautiful day! Claudia was wonderful! Highly recommend this tour.
A great tour, different than the others. Anna was wonderful and a joy to spend the day with. Siena was fantastic and traveling to San Gimignano was much more interesting that I originally thought it would be. We look forward to using Walks of Italy on future travel.

Claudia was the best! It was a very relaxing and beautiful day! We would do it again.
Claudia was an excellent guide - knowledgeable, engaging, personable, gun.
Our guide Claudia was fun, the countryside and towns were so charming, and the food at the winery was absolutely delicious. A wonderful trip. I would just recommend a stop for a few minutes so we could take photos of the breathtaking scenery. It was a wonderful day.
San Gimignano was lovely! The food and wine was also great
Anna was fantastic. She really gave us all her energy in describing the sights, giving us historical background and keeping us on track while still allowing us some freedom for photos, coffe, etc. We loved the beautiful places we visited as well as the delicious winery lunch and tasting. It was a lovely day all around. We also enjoyed the small group of people who shared the tour with us.
Lovely day and Claudia was a wonderful guide!
Maria Guilia was a great guide. Not only did she explain what we were seeing, she gave us insights to how the locals lived and viewed their towns. In addition, the wine tasting at the farm in Chianti was excellent. We normally do not like red wines, but these wines changed our minds about red wines. We also got to experience having olive oil that was made the previous day. In our two week stay in Italy with a tour almost every day, this was our favorite tour.
Great tour, lots of information and fun!
Gulia was great! Very personable, informative as well as entertaining. This tour was the highlight of our trip! We loved seeing Siena, San Gimgiagno and having lunch at winery/olive farm. I loved learning about all of the wines and the lunch was delicious! I would book another tour through Walks of Italy when I plan to go back. ( Hopefully sooner than later) They money was well spent and the memories will last a lifetime. Thank you Gulia!!!
We had a wonderful time!!! Only thing I would consider changing would be to add another 30 minutes or more in Siena for some wandering or shopping. Thank you!
We loved Eleanora and the day trip from Tuscany. It was certainly a highlight of our time in Italy! Eleanora is fantastic and knows her history!!
Everything was wonderful. Our guide was excellent. She is a jewel. Thank you.
Would have liked a bit more free time in San Gimignano but laura was lovely!
Anna was the best guide ever! She was delightful and informative the entire time. Thank you, the Youngblood and Caldwell Families
The day was perfect and well planned. The tour guide and driver could not have been more helpful. Would highly recommend.

The only negative was the quality of the lunch at the vineyard. We expected a lunch with a wow factor given the event price.
Excellent tour. Enjoyed the lunch at the winery. Gulia our guide and Marco or driver were fountains of information. The highlight was the cathedral in Siena.

I do not give a 5 star rating for this tour for the reasons detailed below but I had a great time. Our guide (Claudia if I remember well her name) was a very kind and attentive person, passionate by her country. I felt like I knew her for a long time. She did a great job and I felt sad to leave her at the end f the day. Our driver was very professionnal and a nice person. The bus was very confortable. The tour itself was fine, however I felt that a better balance should be reached between the visits, for which I paid more than $200, and the commercial "attractions". For instance in Siena, I would have liked to have more time for visiting the cathedral and the city, than the candy shop on the main square (although they are greta candies and are worth a short visit). The lunch time was an amazing moment. The people was friendly, the food and wine were absolutely devine. But the lunch lasted about 3 hours, which is a bit too long since people are invited to test the wines with the objective to buy wine bottles for exportation. Finally, the visit of San Gimignano was not a visit per se, since we add one free hour by our own to go through the village which is full of shops. I would have preferred a guided tour with more explanations about the history of the place and the architecture. Once again. I felt that I was blessed to live this experience I will recommend your company with no hesitation.
This was our second Tour with Walks of Italy for the Chianti and Sienna/San Gimignano Tour. My husband and I did this one last year. It was our favorite day in Italy, and we were just as excited to do it this year with our family. Anna was our host, she is delightful and knowledgeable, and Stefano, our driver, made me feel safe and comfortable on the drive. Poggio Amorelli served us a delicious lunch and even prepared special vegetarian dishes for me and my husband. Lorenzo hosted us, and was kind and interesting. We hope we can take this tour again next year! Sincerely, AnneMarie Pisano

We had 6 people in our van plus driver and tour guide. It was an ideal size. The guide was informative and delightful. It was actually a better experience than I thought it would be. Very good tour
Julie was fantastic! Thank you
We loved the tour of the region!! Perfect trip with a great guide, she was so helpful and informative !.
This was a good tour. I would have liked to get more time in the cathedral in Siena, which included our only morning bathroom break and had a long line for the bathroom. The audioguide to the cathedral was great, but there wasn't enough time to listen to all of it. The Poggio Amorelli winery hosts were lovely to us.
Anna, did a great job with the tour. Great value and really enjoy the countryside winery and small towns.
