    Very well organized program. Friendly and knowlegable guide, Lavi. Riccardo, our driver was helpful and very friendly. The tour goves a lifetime ecperience. Siena and San Gimignsno unforgetable. The art and the beauty is unvaluable. My strong recco to all. The lunch was also great on an irganic farm with several wine tasting. No wonder we bought wine in the local shop. The pkan is to come back for a relaxing stay in one if the agrotouristic farm.

    The tour was spon on. Our guide Alessandro made sure we don't miss any significant detail about the region of Tuscany and Italy in general. The cities we passed by are truly beautiful and the tour is made so that you have some spare time to explore on your on.

    The your was amazing! Our guide Olivia was very friendly and answered so many questions. I did not book the lunch, so I can’t evaluate on that. Siena was very beautiful. The local guide (unfortunately I forgot her name) explained all significant spots on the walking tour with passion. We have also been very lucky to see the floor of the cathedral uncovered, which is normally not the case on July. My highlight of the Tour was San Gimignano, the “medieval Manhattan”. Without the lunch option we had more than 4 hours of free time there. In summary I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who likes to see the highlights of Tuscany (except Florence) in one day.
