It was a great trip and Martha was a lovely and friendly guide The wine tasting was excellent. The only thing that would have helped is 1. Made it much clearer that there are quite steep hills involved 2. To have dropped of at the train station as it was a short but frustrating walk after a long day from the bus station. `It might have been idea to let a cab company know what time the coach was due to arrive and have cabs at the bus station

This tour is a must for everyone staying in Florence and looking to visit stunning parts of Tuscany within the day. We started in San Gimignano early morning, which meant we explored it before most tourists arrived. It was very peaceful and we had plenty of time to visit the main sites. We then moved over to Monteriggioni, and then to a cantina in the Chianti region with a 3-course meal and wine tasting experience. We then finished with just about 3 hours in Siena. An absolutely brilliant day, and excellent value for money.

We loved the excursion to San Giminiano, Monterigioni, food in wineries and Siena. The guide, María Luisa was a charm at all times, and Leonardo, the driver, very professional. We loved the wine tasting, and actually bought a couple of bottles. The excursion is highly recommended. I. loved Sangiminiano and Siena. Of the latter, the We were wonderful. It was very comfortable that they took us from one town to another.
