This was the perfect day trip to see Tuscany in a day (if that’s all the time you have). Our guide Manolo was amazing and so informative. He gave good recommendations and some history lessons throughout the day. He was always checking in with us and made sure we were having a good time! Thank you to him! If you can, opt for the farm lunch, it was lovely and a good opportunity to taste some wines from the region. Although it is a long day, you get plenty time to rest on the bus in between places. I would highly recommend this to anyone.

Sara our guide and Enrico our driver gave us a really good day out, very friendly, well organised and caring. The tour around Sienna was excellent with expert commentary from the local guide, with fascinating details of the Palio. The lunch near San Giminiano was excellent and the town very atmospheric. Pisa and the Leaning Tower finished the day well. Just the right amount and blend of commentary from Sara and very friendly manner, and faultless English. Chris & Clare from Prestwood, Bucks, England.
