Vanessa_N, Oct 2022
Wonderful tour!! Pienza is well worth a visit and is my favorite Medieval town. It has a great balance of history, restaurants, and shopping. I highly recommend!!
Nice tour
Steven_C, Oct 2022
Wine tasting, tour guide were all excellent. Thats all I have to say about this tour. We had a small group of 7 which worked out well.
Beautiful Tuscan fall day.
Michael_G, Oct 2022
Anna and our driver were fantastic. Lots of history. Winery was awesome. Would have liked more time in Montepulciano and less in Pienza. Pienza is small and not so much time is needed there.
Lovely visit to two villages and wine tasting

The winery visit was a waste of time . Julia was good. Driver should play less music and give us quiet Julia our guide was good
Skip this if you cannot easily do lots of steep steps.
Cecelia_K, Oct 2022
The abundance of steep steps that we had to climb; the reviews and description of the tour did not say anything about the steps: we had difficulty climbing them and even skipped the last stop during the tour because of the steps. Very disappointing.
Enjoyable day tour
hjgc429bhj, Oct 2022
We really enjoyed our tour with Anna to the winery, Pienza and Montepulciano. The amount of free time to explore the towns was appreciated. The tour bus was comfortable and clean, and the driver was excellent. Anna was informative and friendly and her English was good. We learned new things about Brunello wines at the winery. It was a very pleasant day and we’re glad we took the tour.
If you can, just rent a car and go to the places yourself
Maria_A, Aug 2022
I was very underwhelmed with the experience. While I liked the winery and tasting, I had expected to be taken to the field to see the vines and get a thorough explanation of the process. I think the ad is misleading making you think that you will also visit a winery in Montepulciano, which you don't unless you organize it yourself. Other than the winery, the tour just consists on dropping you off in the other towns, which are lovely, but you can just do it yourself

Dear Maria Greetings from my Tour in Italy team First of all you have free time in the city don’t include guided visit. During the time in the bus the guide explain the city , the history and the highlights. And this tour include wine tasting at one of the best wineries of the region. Best regards

Super enjoyable tour
Giampaolo_P, Jun 2022
The tour was very pleasant overall. The minivan departed on time (10am) from the meeting point and it was 7 of us in total. First stop was the wine tasting at a local farm/winery, which included 4 glasses of wine, a shot of grappa and some cured meats, cheese with bread and olive oil. We then had free time in both Pienza (about 1 hour) and Montepulciano (about 2 hours) to explore the cities. From both places the views over the Val d’Orcia are breathtaking. The driver and guide, Vincenzo in our case, was very knowledgeable, friendly and fluent in Italian, English and Spanish. I would definitely recommend this tour if you want a taste of the beautiful Val d’Orcia and its wines.
Response from Host, Jun 2022
Dear Giampaolo, Thank you so much for sharing your experience with My Tour. Our goal is 100% customer satisfaction and it sounds like we achieved that goal with you. Looking forward to have you back again in the future. Best Regards My Tour
Worth it
MICHAEL_W, May 2022
The guide was very friendly, but personal hygiene was an issue. The tour was comprehensive, but the guide read from cue cards. It would have been nice to see the actual grapes vines. The cellar in Montepulciano was amazing. The guide took us to an incredible view of the Tuscan countryside as a bonus.
Response from Host, May 2022
Dear customer, thank you for your feedback, we are so sorry about the issue you pointed out. We will do our best to check it and improve it! We hope you enjoyed the experience! Thank you for choosing us, hope to see you again on another tour all around Italy!
Amazing !
Tanner_D, May 2022
Breathtaking views, a cool winery, and super charming little towns. Vincenzo was a great guide and because it was only 8 we took a van instead of a bus which was very enjoyable. Would recommend for anyone who wants to see the amazing Tuscan countryside.

Patrizia T, Mar 2018
We had a great day in Val d'Orcia. Our trip started from Siena, a car driven by a kind man brought us to a meeting point along the road to Montepulciano, where we got onto a van from Florence, with the guide and other tourists. The three places are wonderful, we saw stunning landscapes and tested different kinds of excellent wines inside two ancient canteens, They also offered us cheese, salame, bread.The only negative aspect was the weather, foggy and rainy, but it was not their fault!!
A tour from hell. Meet near Siena...
elisha R, Nov 2017
A tour from hell. Meet near Siena wall. Going to get guide and start from there. Yeah, right...us and too many other people are then walked about 1/2 mile to a bus that we boarded. Only to be taken many miles outside city to travel plaza where we were grouped with another group who had came from Florence onto a double decker bus--ugh. They were off using bathrooms as we were told to board and find any available seats. problem? there were single seats here and there and we were a traveling party of 4. we had to wait for two passengers and started to the villages way later... the group is way too large --wineries couldn't handle us and we were broken into two groups and still crowded way thru wineries. the area is beautiful , great little towns but descriptions don't tell the honest truth about the cattle call that this tour truly is. don't do this tour!
What was an OK trip could have been...
Renae D. L, Oct 2017
What was an OK trip could have been a great trip if there hadn't been so much wasted time. The 3 towns we visited were worth seeing and the Montalcino wine tasting was fun, with Mario the passionate winery owner proudly showing off his wines. Pienza was small and I could have missed that in exchange for more time in one of the other two towns. Our issue was with all the wasted time. We were asked to arrive at 9am for a 9:15am tour start, but at 9:15am, there was no tour guide there. A gentleman showed up to meet us and walk us to the bus. We boarded the bus well after 9:30 and drove to a mini-mart/gas station on the highway, where were we told we were waiting for the tour guide who would arrive in 5-10 minutes. When the tour guide and another bus of people arrived 45 minutes later, that group was allowed to get off the bus to use the restrooms. By the time both groups were ready and our group had boarded the second bus, it was close to 11am. So the 9am start was now 11am and the 6-7pm conclusion of the tour turned out to be almost 8:30pm. All in all, nice towns but a lot of wasted time and miscommunication. We had a similar experience with a Viator tour in Greece, so I think we are done with Viator.
