Jacob was fantastic as our guide who was with us the whole trip. Very informative with a great personality. Elena was our tour guide through Siena. She was born and raised there and had lots of great information and stories about Siena and the church we toured through. Mario won best dressed driver. Very safe and professional. The places we visited were amazing! The food and wine at the winery were absolutely delicious and gave big portions. We were all wonderfully full of pasta and wine afterwards. You’ll get your steps in at San Gimignano.. it’s on top of a hill and some streets are steep to walk on, but absolutely gorgeous views and architecture. Be warned though- If you Get car sick, the trip from San Gimignano to Pisa might affect you- lots of windy roads. But the views are stellar out of the bus windows. Pisa was crowded but it was amazing to see it up close. It was a long day, but I’d do it again!

Excellent tour
Amber_L, May 2023
Amazing tour. Stephan was very informative and a great guide. Paolo's driving skills were superb. Enjoyed the winery we stopped at for lunch. The lunch and the drinks were very good. Everywhere we stopped was a site to see.

Tracy_T, May 2023
It was such a hot day. I would recommend the tour company bring at least one cold bottle of water for each guest. The 3 places were lovely & lunch at the winery was very good. Note to travelers, there is a lot of walking. Wear comfortable walking shoes as there are inclines & steps.
A great experience well worth the fee
Angelo_M, May 2023
We travelled on a bus. It was full on but it was great to visit the three places in one day . The guide was very friendly and knowledgeable
Long day, beautiful sites!
Rebecca_L, May 2023
It was a very long day. Also, the bus did not have a working restroom. Glad we were able to visit all the towns, however not enough free time to spend on your own. The guide was very knowledgeable and helpful!
Must see
Kristal_W, May 2023
Everything was great. Only bad thing is the ticket said ‘ fully equipped bus’ to me that means it has a toilet. It did not.
Great tour!!

Sunil_N, May 2023
To explore Tuscany in a day is only possible with this kind of tour. Although it was rushed but it had to be. Old people should stay away from this. For young and adults it’s great. Wine and the food was great
A must do!
Christine_B, May 2023
This tour was professional from beginning to end. Our guide on the bus was friendly, helpful and informative, and gave everyone quiet time in the bus. The tour guide in Siena was one of the best I’ve ever experienced. We had just the right amount of time in Siena, San Gimigana and Pisa to get a good feel for the places. The lunch at the winery was a real surprise. And a highlight! We were guided though lunch and a wine tasting by a very knowledgeable and entertaining host.
Our guide was amazing!...
Shelby_B, May 2023
Our guide was amazing! She was very knowledgeable and lively. I thoroughly enjoyed the entire day. Lots of walking, but we don’t mind at all. Only con was difficulty locating the initial meet up location to start the journey in Florence. The company was helpful with messaging and calling.
A long day of touring…
Karen_R, May 2023
The highlight was definitely lunch and wine tasting. Minimal info provided about each stop and you are on your own at each location. This is not a “guided” tour. Large group of 70 plus.
More time needed!
Tara_H, May 2023
The tour leader Malcolm was awesome and did a great job informing and sharing insights with us. My only frustration was the long walks from where the bus dropped us off to get to Siena and San Gimignano. This took away from our time visiting these places-everthing after we left Siena felt rushed. Also spent far too much time looking for and/or standing in line to use a toilet.
Perfect 3 Town Tuscan Trip
Susan_R, May 2023
A long day but well organised from the pick up point. Our tour guide was the lovely Hilary and she did a great job of keeping our group informed not only about the local history of the places we visited but also keeping the group informed of meeting times and places,ready to go onto next place. Luca was our driver and drove us safely to each place. The lunch at the vineyard was simple but enjoyable with wine tasting. Would recommend booking with Ciao Florence via Viator.
The 3 towns we visited...
Bronwyn_W, May 2023
The 3 towns we visited were all interesting, I chose this tour for the order of the town visits. Lunch was homestyle but hearty, nice wine tastings.
Disappointed with guide and tour
Carol_F, May 2023
We were very disappointed with this tour. The bus was late to begin with and the tour guide walked too fast and got too far ahead of us and the group of 5 in front of us. We got tired of trying to catch up to them and gave up as we were losing sight of them. We ended up taking a taxii for 130 euros back to Florence. Your website should indicate that the tour has lots and lots of walking. We would appreciate a refund as we did not see any of the tour.
Response from Host, May 2023
Dear Customer, We are sorry to read that our tour didn’t meet your expectations. As written in the description, this is a full day tour and there is a lot to walk. That’s why we don’t suggest it to people with impairment issues or to everybody who knows that doesn’t like to walk for so long. We hope you can join us for your next trip to Italy and maybe choose a private option so we can organise your tour at your own leisure and pace. Have a nice day, CiaoFlorence Staff
Siena was great. Trip...
James_P, May 2023
Siena was great. Trip had far too much walking and too little time at each stop. Should have option to prepurchase leaning tower tickets as they were sold out when we arrived
So beautiful
Migdalia_C, May 2023
Our tour of Tuscany couldn't have been lovelier. The guides were outstanding, the food was delicious, the views were spectacular.
Beautiful but rushed
Zelia_J, May 2023
Beautiful three Tuscan towns, but the trip felt very rushed at each location. I would recommend to a prospective tourist, if they wouldn’t mind being rushed. We paid over $100 each to be rushed around all day. It’s a lot of money and this should’ve been better planned. Maybe instead of including Pisa in this itinerary, focus more within Tuscany, where we could’ve had more time in Siena, San Gimignano, and perhaps another Tuscan town. The family vineyard for lunch was ok. Il Ciliego? They were quite stingy with food, wine, biscotti, and even olive oil. The staff are all very nice, but I would not recommend this vineyard to anyone. Thank you.
Best tour we did, even though we didn’t climb the tower
Tanya_E, May 2023
All the places we visited were beautiful, even in the rain. The guides were really nice and Silvia spoke English and Spanish very well. The speaker system on the bus was so loud it hurt my ears. I should have said something but no one else seemed to mind. Wish we had more time in each place.
Lovely tour
AnaClaudia_L, May 2023
The tour was great! The lunch and wine tasting was very nice! The little town of San Gimignano was beautiful. The ice cream delicious! Nice day out!
Great tour!
Valerie_N, May 2023
Fun and great Tuscany tour. Highly recommend it! Our tour guide Philipa (sp?) and driver Paolo were wonderful!
Laura_P, May 2023
Selena, Ana and Luca were great! Wonderful trip! Very well organized. The towns and winery were simply beautiful.
Spending the day back in time.
Peter_T, May 2023
We recently did a guided coach tour of Siena, San Gimignano and Pisa. It was a full day - 12 hr tour with lunch at a beautiful winery. Constantine was a magnificent tour guide, extremely knowledgeable and able to switch between multiple languages instantly. He looked after the 58 strong group brilliantly. The tour stops were amazing, such ancient history and beautiful architecture. Thanks to our driver, Mario, who expertly manoeuvred the coach through the twisty Tuscan hills and delivered my family safely back to Firenze at the end of a long day. Grazie mille, Peter.
Ancient towns
Gary_K, May 2023
The most memorial parts were seeing the towns and the history before our eyes. The cathedral was unbelievable. You can not believe this was constructed so long ago.
The tour was amazing and...
Lisa_A, May 2023
The tour was amazing and lunch was a delight. The only thing I would change is the visit to Pisa - we wish it could have included the entry tickets to the basilica and the tower. We tried to get tickets when we arrived, but there was nothing available until well after our tour departed, which was unfortunate.
Awesome tour and guide....
Alberto_O, May 2023
Awesome tour and guide. Estafano y Mario the best. The different stops are well timed. Food and wine test a awesome experience
Chianti Tour.
Richard_D, May 2023
Siena Cathedral was very impressive. We had a terrific guide. The lunch and wine tasting in San Gimignano was outstanding. Entertaining, great food and wonderful wine. The tour should have ended on that note. But Pisa was included which makes the trip too long. Tour is a large group and bi-lingual.
Fun tour
Viviana_M, May 2023
Great trip and the tour guides were amazing and very helpful! Thank you for an amazing time! We definitely recommend
Very hilly, lots of stairs. Beautiful!
Carol_M, May 2023
Many hilly climbs, be prepared! Exhausting but beautiful. Pisa is more beautiful in person. The winery was nice.
A nice taste of Tuscany
joseph_r, May 2023
Wonderful sites to see. Architectural and Engineering marvels. Lunch at the winery was great treat. Just be prepared to walk a lot!
