The first winery was no i out t so good. Even if it is small then the place could be cleaner and neater. The second one Casa Emma is wonderful. Scenery is what we wanted to see and it’s there. The wines are good and cold cuts satisfying. The crown of the tour is the third one Poggio Torselli. The gardens is beautiful and small castle is restored wonderfully.

It was an amazing tour! Both our guide Sara and driver Nikolai were excellent. The whole trip took 12-13hrs but it was totally worth it. Siena was our favorite. Walkabout Tours were really professional and organized. We had delicious pasta and wines for lunch. Highly recommend this tour.
