Beautiful tour I would suggest to anyone who enjoys wine and beautiful scenery. We started the tour at 3:00 pm , traveled an hour to Siena with the very handsome guide, Antonio , giving us history lessons along the way. We had one hour in gorgeous Siena to do what we pleased ( I climbed the tower, my mom toured the museum , then we shopped a bit). The best part of the entire trip was the gorgeous ride to the vineyard watching the sunset on the Tuscan hills. Once we arrived at the vineyard we had a tour of the cellar and then a beautiful family style dinner with a wine pairing upon each course.

My ONLY suggestion would be that I wish the tour had left Florence at 2:00 instead of 3:00 because by the time we arrived at the vineyard after our time in Siena it was dark and therefore I couldn't see as much of the vineyard as I would have liked. This tour is also not so friendly to those who may have trouble climbing stairs or walking long distances just FYI. Otherwise, perfecto!

What a great day!
We did this tour yesterday on our last day staying in Florence. 100% would recommend. We had two very
lovely tour guides (Francesco and stanislava) and a friendly bus driver. We had a fantastic day seeing many things that we wouldn't have gotten to see on our own. It's a very big day packed full of fun activities, but had a really good mix of free time as well so you can choose how youd like to experience each place. The wine tasting was very generous portions and we also got to try lovely cheeses, breads, oils (including truffle oil), and balsamic vinegars! It was very interesting learning about the history of each place and having time to explore. A must do tour when in florence. The only thing we would say is allow plenty of time to find the meeting point as we didnt find the instructions very clear and we along with a few others we spoke to ended up running to find it on time. It would've been better to maybe meet out the front of the station and walk to where the buses are. Or have a link to the map with the specific spot to meet pinned. Other then that it was a fantastic day!

Excellent way to spend a day in Tuscany
We throughly enjoyed this day trip, covering a lot of Tuscany with no stress.
Our tour guide Eva Maria was unfailingly cheerful , patient and energetic, dealing with a large bus load and speaking both English and Spanish.
I left an expensive hat at the last stop and Eva phoned the winery for me, collected the hat on her next visit, and posted it back to me in Australia, refusing reimbursement for all her efforts.It was very kind of her, thanks again Eva Maria!
