We had some rain in the first few hours, but it cleared up and the rest of the trip was great! Alisa and Edgar did a great job and Melanie, the tour guide in Siena was knowledgeable and held our attention throughout the tour.

Overall it was a good tour to have a sample experience of the villages and town around Florence, allow me to see many places without planning for transportation. I enjoyed the Wine Tasting. It would have been better if we had more time to explore on our own in Siena.

Disappointing

, Oct 2020
This tour was wrongly described by Viator in several respects. There was no commentary on the bus journeys; there was no WiFi on the bus; entry to the cathedral in Siena was not included. The drop off points at each destination were far from the attractions making for unnecessarily long walks and wasted time. Overall disappointing (although the lunch and wine tasting was excellent)
icon Response from Host , Oct 2020
Dear Jhon, we are sorry to learn about your disappointment and we would like to clarify that the tour you booked has more than one options and you have chosen that one without the inside visit of the Cathedral. On the tour description as well as on the voucher is specified that the Cathedral interior visit is included depending on the selected option. The same for the commentary on the bus, It’s clearly stated that for small groups (up to 8 people) there will be an English speaking driver instead of a tour escort. All the above information are not missing as we want to be clear about all tour’s details. At each destination, the city center is only few minutes walk away from the parking and this is quite normal for all historical centers where the means of transport cannot enter. Thank you for your understanding Best regards

More a transportation tour than an excursion
JeanPaul

Some remarks: -We were one hour too early at San Gimignano, It might be dificult for better timing but life start in this town at 10.30 -I understand you prefer to park your bus gratis, but at least drop your clients at the entrance or closer to the visiting point. Your driver has nothing to do, so dont let your clients walk their time -Short time in Siena rushes up the guiding tour.
icon Response from Host , Oct 2020
Dear Sirs, while thanking for your review, let us explain that our tour is very successful as it allows you to visit in one day many places of interest like San Gimignano, Monteriggioni, Chianti and Siena. As you can understand the arrival and the stop in San Gimignano, it’s scheduled with a timing in consideration of the other stops provided in the program. However despite of it, we hope you have appreciated the particular beauty of this town with its famous medieval towers. The bus cannot drop the clients at the entrance or closer to the old town as it’s not allowed, furthermore we point out that the parking is not as free as you think. In Siena after the guided visit you have free time to discover the city as you like and the whole stop there it's about 3 hrs. Thank you for your understanding Best regards
