Siena wasn't very inspiring (hence the slightly lower rating), but the wine tour, lunch, and travel through the Tuscany country side was beautiful. Pisa was as expected. Our guide Olivia was knowledgeable and friendly, and Marco (the bus driver) was friendly also. Overall, a well run tour.
A tour guide Elisa and a dedicated driver Massimo made this one day Tuscany experience even more wonderful. I would recommend this tour to anyone who has one day to spend in this beautiful region of Italy.
To say we were impressed is an understatement! Sara was such a knowledgeable and gracious guide for our Tuscany adventure. She was funny and such a people person. She was patient with any and all questions and took the time to connect with everyone on the tour. GRAZIE MILLE SARA!! The tour itself was amazing. Such a fun day getting to spend time touring the Tuscan countryside and having a delicious lunch with plenty of wine
A long 12 hour day but an incredible and fantastic tour. Value from start to finish. Our guide Elisa was a wealth of information from start to finish and our driver Marco showed his driving skills on the tight country roads. This tour is highly recommended.
Even though it rained during our tour day, we had a fantastic time due to our tour guide Alexandra and a well planned tour that was ready for things like rain. Seina, San Gimignano and Pisa will remain as highlights of our trip. We really appreciated Alexandra as she spent individual time with each couple/person to answer questions and and assist with other travel plans/tours. Awesome day with Walk About Tours!
The places we visited were incredible and my wife and I had a great experience. I only wish we have had more time to spend at Pisa.
Wow ... this tour was amazing!!! It’s a must if you are in Florence! We saw so much.. had a lovely guide (duna?) and it was just an amazing day.. you really cannot miss this tour! :)
My husband and I had a fantastic day on this tour. I have to admit when you start lining up in the morning, and you see the hordes of people being herded onto the massive bus, you get a little put off, but it was fantastic. A lot of travel between the places, and just an hour in each place, but it's a fantastic cost effect way to see so much in one day. Angie, Angie, Angie, she might have been the highlight of the tour, what an incredible bubbly and knowledgeable tour guide. She just made the day that much for fun. And I wanted to pack her in my suitcase and take that ball of energy back to Australia. Please Angie if you ever make it to Australia, please look me up. You are amazing! Anyway, definitely book this tour, and if your tour guide is even half as good as Angie you'll have an amazing day.
Tour guide Alexandra,was amazing, witty and knowledgable. Bus was clean and comfortable ,and lunch was a perfect middle of the day breakup! Well done!
Great tour if you want to see Tuscany in one day. Duna and Salvatore were great guides, insightful and funny. The tour works great if you do not have much time and want to get to see Siena, San Gimignano, and Pisa plus have a good lunch with wine tasting. Definitely recommended.
Good tour, the lunch on an organic farm was amazing. The guide spoke perfect English. Only recommendation is to have some more info about Pisa and surrounding buildings while we were there although it could be hard to accomplish in such a long day. The driver (I think his name was Marco) was superb on difficult super tight roads and we felt safe due to his driving expertise. Olivia was our tour guide and she was very attentive and informative.
Although the tour was long with lots of walking, it was outstanding in terms of our guide Angela, information, caring, responsibility, timing and content. Our lical guide in Siena was also excellent as well as the lunch and wine tasting. Highest praise and heartily recommended for money and value.
Excellent tour of high points in Tuscany within 12 hours. Alessandro our guide was knowledgeable and attentive and did a fine job. The lunchtime food and drink at the working organic farm was truly a pleasant surprise and was of excellent quality. All and all I have to rate this tour with top score of 5.
This tour was fantastic! Our tour guide, Sara, was wonderful. I hurt my leg the night before and she went out of her way to get me a taxi upon arrival in Siena so that I could see the area while the rest of the group went on the walking tour. She kept checking on me at each site visit during the day and went above and beyond. The stops we visited were breathtaking. The lunch at the farmhouse was delicious - and they kept piling on the food onto your plate! We would love to do this tour again! Thank you again, Sara!!!!
This tour was above our expectations. Although it was a very long day, we were able to enjoy much of Tuscany. There were too many highlights to mention. Angie, our guide, was organized, filled with enthusiasm making sure we all had a terrific experience, and very knowledgeable. Sergio was a very skillful driver taking care to maneuver our bus around Tuscany’s tricky turns. This was a fabulous tour!
Angela our tour guide was excellent and so was Sergio( bus driver ) Very good overview of Tuscany. Wish the stop at the wine farm was longer though for more photo opportunities. Beautiful cities. Well worth the visit and reasonably priced.
The next time I come back to Italy, I really want to spend more time in Tuscany. This tour was an easy and convenient to see neighboring towns in a single day. I am so happy to have seen Siena and San Gimignano. Pisa was nice too but let's be honest, it's thrown in there so you can check the leaning tower off your list :D The tour met at the Firenze Santa Maria Novella railway station. This tour is massively popular so there were I'm estimating maybe 50 - 60 people, so easy to find. They split us into 2 large groups. We walked to the bus (coach) and away we went. They give you a rest break about an hour in, which was much appreciated. We first arrived in Siena, which was wonderful because it was still the morning. Siena was quite and just waking up. So even though we were a large tourist group, the other tour groups hadn't shown up yet. We did this tour on a Sunday so we went into the Hospital museum instead of the church, which I was personally grateful for. The hospital was fascinating. After Siena we went to the Farm for the wine tasting. The wine tasting was more here's some bottles of wine, serve yourself, which was fine, just being a CA girl I'm used to a different experience. And oh my goodness, they give you so much food, it was great (especially for the boys). Next stop was san gimignano which was amazing. I will note we did this tour in August and it was painfully hot. After doing the wine tasting then sprinting around san gimignano to see it all was exhausting. Personally I went straight to the highest point to get the best vantage point of Tuscany (there's also a water fountain up there). There are a few heads up I want to give about this tour: It was way more walking than I thought. This day alone we walked 10 miles. This is because buses are not allowed in the city so they have to park outside the city and we have to walk in. I felt awful for my parents who were not expecting this much walking. Pisa is OK. As you're walking to the main attraction you have to go through a LOT of hecklers and pick pockets. Luckily our guide was on high alert and he spotted a mother and daughter who tried to merge with our group to pick our pockets. He called them out and they went running. Lastly, bring lots of water. The guide will sell waters but since its a long day, bring your own.
This is a must see.. it's an all day event, however it's plenty of time to see the vineyards to pisa.
Elisa was very knowledgeable and entertaining. Highly recommended day trip. Tour of Piza tower felt a bit rushed to get up and back down - not by Elisa, but by the tower staff. Overall, recommended and would do another tour with Elisa/Walkabout.
Wonder trip very informative and Sara was a great guide. I do think they should had a minimum age limit we had a small baby who cried most of the time so was very distracting and we were trying to take a couples vacation
We enjoyed the tour very much. We felt that Pisa could be less time and more in the 2 charming villages. Our guide was fantastic.
This was an excellent day with a phenomenal guide name Sara and the driver Emiliano. Everything was packed into a full day but worth it on every level to include the wine lunch.
It was just a taster of Tuscany but the sights we saw were unbeatable! Sarah was such an amazing guide. A must try for sure.
Everything about this trip was magic! Our tour guide Olivia (I hope I have her name right) was knowledgeable and very organised. All the places we visited were amazing, so much wonderful history, stunning views and buildings, and oh the lunch was just perfect! I have an onion allergy and they happily made me pasta without onion, it is a long day, but it is crammed full of adventure and also some time to recover on the airconditioned bus.
My family and I enjoyed this experience. We were able to experience so many different places in one day, something I don't think we would have been able to do otherwise. Sarah was a great tour leader.
Our tour leader, Sarah was simply fabulous. We were eight of us on this tour and on a 104 deg hot summer day, yet Sarah made this tip very memorable. Even the local tour guide at Sienna was funny and awesome. The lunch and wine tasting experience was very nice. Overall, we were quite pleased with this tour and highly recommend to others who are looking to see Tuscan region.
very well organized , fluent and well informed local guide, well thought out stops - Siena was beautiful , Lunch was generous and the vineyard very pretty....would recommend for couples of all ages and families with children.
Attended the Tuscan tour with my wife we both had an amazing time SARA you were fantastic and so knowledgeable also thanks to Giuseppe for getting us there and back safely
Loved, loved, loved this experience! Guides were amazing and informative. Olivia and Emiliano took great care of us. Loved the vinyard/farm visit and lunch. Thank you for an amazing experience!
Amazing day. Sarah was awesome!! The driver was fantastic as well. It's a long day in regards to time, but it will be one of the better experiences you do.
Our guide, Angela was great. She was knowledgeable about the sites we visited. She was relaxed and easy to talk to. Her communication skills were outstanding.
Our guide Sarah is funny and caring. The tour itself is great but the experience wouldn’t have been as enjoyable without her!
This tour was very well organized - Sara is a wonderful tour guide - very helpful and so funny - we had a large group with a lot of little kids and everything went incredibly smooth! Loved the towns and the history! Would definitely recommend this tour! Also the bus driver Tony was very good and safe.
Both Giancarlo and Angela were fantastic. I think that they're the most suitable persons for this job. Bravo!!!
We're a young couple, both 25, and we took this awesome tour with Antonio and couldn't recommend it enough! 1. Very well organized. Clear meeting points and times and understandable itinerary. 2. Great value! You cram a lot into the trip, it lasted about 12 hours total but we saw 3 great cities, a ton of Tuscan landscape, and ate a huge lunch with lots of great wine
Elisa was a fantastic guide. We had a great day and everything was perfectly organized. Would definitely recommend.
Our guide, Sara was fantastic! Toscana is beautiful! The gelatto in San Germignano was the best I ever tried!
Angie, our tour guide and Ricardo, our bus driver were super awesome, we had a great time. It was an 8 hour tour with lunch included. You’ll be to take all the classic, cool pictures you want, including the famous leaning tower of Pisa picture.
Was a great day but there was not enough time at each stop. We climbed the tower on Pisa but as we only had 50 mins we had no time explore the cathedral or Baptistry or surroundings
Whistle stop tour of Tuscany with family. Something for everyone the organisation and guides were fantastic. The beautiful Tuscany villages and towns breathtaking. With a lovely lunch and nice wine. Highly recommended.
Our tour of Tuscany was amazing! So beautiful and really well planned. Sara was our tour guide and she did a super job! Would recommend to anyone!
We had a wonderful day with Olivia! She was so pleasant and informative! Couldn't have had a better end to our trip in Italy!
Our experience was great! Group of 11 and all pleased. Duna was such an engaging guide! She was really passionate and thorough with all locations. All the stops were amazing. Organized and on time. We highly recommend it.
My family and I just went in this tour yesterday. Sara was our guide and she was extremely knowledgeable about all of the cities we visited. You could tell she is passionate about the history of her country and loves her job. I would highly recommend this excursion to anyone who wants to learn about and see Tuscany! Emilio was our driver and we felt nothing but safe. Thanks again for the wonderful day.
We only had two days in Florence so decided on the Tuscany tour to see as much as possible. It’s a great way to see the popular destinations outside of Florence in one day. The tour was well organised and didn’t feel too rushed as we were given free time at all of the locations. The highlight of the tour was the afternoon lunch provided by the winery. I was expecting a cheap and cheerful lunch on a picnic table but it was quite the opposite. It was a proper sit down 3-course meal in what effectively was a restaurant. The food was really tasty and the wine was great. Finally, our guide Elisa was fantastic! She is a real credit to this tour and ensured everyone was attended to. Credit also goes to our driver, Massimo, who managed to organise a replacement bus whilst we had lunch as the AC stopped working on the first bus.
Totally worth the time and money. Our guide Alexandra was fun, knowledgeable and helpful. Loved the Tuscan cities of Seina, San Gimignano and Pisa. We climbed the tower as well.
Fantastic trip, I would certainly recommend it to others. Enjoyed every minute. Great guide, Olivia and great bus Driver, Marco.
This was a last minute booking for us and was one of our best tours of our vacation. Our guide, Elisa, and driver, Emilio, did a great job on this full day tour of Tuscany. It is a busy day to see 3 cities and the provided lunch was very good. The time provided in each city provides a good overall taste of the city and it appropriate.
Elisa was our guide and Riccardo our driver for the day which was very long. She was very personable and knowledgeable about all aspects of the tour. Lunch was at the Vernaccia Winery and was excellent. I highly recommend this tour for those that want to get away for a day in Tuscany
This was a great trip to see a lot of Tuscany, probably only scratches the surface of all it has to offer. Elisa with Walkabout tours was fantastic.
We were somewhat hesitant to book a full day trip from Florence to Tuscany but this itinerary was fabulous. The combination of visits to historic towns and sites, and lunch and lots of wine at a family winery, was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole day. Our guide, Angie, was marvelous. She had incredible knowledge about the area, and her lively spirit made the trip.
Was an amazing day trip. We enjoyed every minute of it. Shout out to our amazing guide Elisa and our bus driver.
This exceeded our expectations. We had a wonderful day with our tour director Alex from Walkabout in Florence. Our driver Jon Carlos made it a smooth trip. Everything was seamless and relaxed. Very knowledgeable and pleasant local guide in Sienna. Terrific lunch/wine tasting on a beautiful farm and lots of free time to explore San Gimignano and Pisa.
My wife and I had a wonderful time in Tuscany mainly because we had a very good tour leader, Alessandro. During our trip to Siena, he gave a a very detail history background between Siena and Florence. This was only a small piece of it. I wish we had another 30 minutes in Siena but the schedule did not permits. I'm glad we had ample time in San Gimignano, which I thought was the highlight of the trip. Needless to say anymore because other reviewers have said it all, I highly recommend this tour.
From beginning to end our guide Elisa was engaging and took her time to check on us all the ..even though the weather was bad w er had an unforgettable time
This is an amazing tour of Tuscany!! Well worth every penny! We had Elisa (guide) and Marco (driver) and despite the rainy day we had the best time! So enjoyable and beautiful! Definitely book this tour if you are in the area!
Three of us (Me, Wife and our 7 year old) were part of Sara's tour. She was amazzzzinnng. Thank you Sara. I have done around 8 tours in my Italy trip (I love other's plan it), and this one was probably in the top two. Lunch was the best part - amazing food and wine. We made lots of good friends and still have amazing memories. I would totally recommend this trip.
We had a fabulous day touring Tuscany. Stops in Siena, lunch at a winery/ olive farm, San Gervasio and Pisa. Our guide, Olivia was very knowledgeable, charming and fun. Geseppie(spelling) our driver was awesome, a smooth ride. The towns were amazing and Olivia gave us lots of info on each. Lunch was delicious, in a perfect terrace setting overlooking the beautiful farm. Olivia spent time with each of the passengers on the bus on the way back answering questions. She gave a real personal touch to the tour! We would do this tour again without any hesitation.
We were so lucky to have Sara (no H) as our guide to Tuscany. A Florence local with a genuine passion and knowledge of this beautiful part of Italy. The visit to Sienna, it's Duomo and a fabulous lunch with wine tasting at an organic vineyard were just some of the highlights. We had also booked tickets to climb the steps of the leaning tower of Pisa, a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you Francesco for getting us from A to B in comfort and safety. And thank you Sara for your wonderful sence of humour, interesting commentary, and just the right amount of authority to keep us all to the time table.
Well spent one day tour, we enjoyed the tour a lot Sara did an excellent job showing us around and keeping things interesting
A gorgeous, jam-packed tour, well-planned and executed. Our guide, Sara, was amazing. Wonderfully informed, friendly, helpful beyond the call of duty, energetic and proud of her region. She masterfully juggled disparate elements of the group including those who wanted to climb the Pisa Tower and those who did not. A long, sometimes taxing tour but we felt it was well worth it. The scenery is extraordinary!
Our guide Sara (without the H) and driver, Antonio, were fantastic. The stops were lovely, only wish we had more time to spend at each one. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip!
My wife and I were so happy we took this tour. You will see all the must visit places in Tuscany in one day siena, san Gimignano, Pisa. Best value for your money. If it’s your first time in Florence you gotta get this tour. Sarah our guide was so funny and knowledgeable plus our coach driver Emiliano was great. Since it’s a group tour you get to meet and make acquaintances specially during Lunch. Awesome tour!
The itinerary was perfectly planned. Olivia and Marcos were great!! Olivia was very accommodative and experienced. We were given enough time to enjoy every stop. The coach was very comfortable, and Marcos was an experienced driver!
This tour, guided by Sara (Ricardo was our driver) was absolutely fantastic! Sara has a wealth of information, given her educational background, which only serves to enhance this already amazing tour. Don’t miss this tour!
We had a great tour! Our tour guide Sarah was very knowledgeable and helpful. I would definitely recommend it.
Best tour! Sara or Princess :) was excellent. She was funny, knowledgeable, and helpful. The stops are magical. The lunch experience was delightful.
My expectations were totally met for this Tuscany day tour. Our tour guide and driver (Olivia and Francesco) made this an unforgettable experience. I will definitely recommend this tour in the future.
