        Lovely day trip with Giovanni as the tour guide
        Hello Giovanni - thank you for taking care of us on our tour of the Tuscan countryside and local towns of Pienza and Montepulciano. We also enjoyed the little coffee stop in Chiusure where we chatted with other visitors who were enjoying the break in the sun. You were charming and responded to all our questions, even the architectural ones! We loved the lunch at the organic farm and wine tasting. My birthday was memorable because the tour was well planned and not too overwhelming. Thank you again and stay well!

        Best way to learn to love Siena
        Loved this tour! We joined on our first full day in Siena and Marella didn’t waste any time bringing the city to life! She gave us insights into both current and historical Siena, the contrade, Palio and so much more. Ending the tour in the Duomo, we were shown little pieces of history we would not have known to look for ourselves. The tour gave us a much better appreciation for the city and laid the groundwork for an amazing stay.

        Must do in Tuscany!
        Our first time in Tuscany, absolutely loved the experience. Our guide Marco was brilliant. Knowledgeable, personable and made the day thoroughly enjoyable! The three wineries we visited were unique and meeting the wine makers for the tastings was extra special. Would recommend this tour to anyone and everyone visiting the region.

        Perfect Experience
        This 8 person tour was perfect! I’m coming from Napa, CA and was expecting perhaps something my touristy but it wasn’t at all that way. It was very intimate, curated and unique. We stopped at an abbey first, then made our way to the first winery - which was beautiful and the wines were delicious. Then headed to a second winery where lunch was served. We made a short stop in Montalcino and finally a last stop ant a third winery to end the day. Giovani made the trip extra special because he was so knowledgeable about the wine and the region. He was also just a super cool person to be around. Highly recommend!

        Highly recommended. Mattias was an amazing guide. His knowledge, experience and opinions about wine made the trip thoroughly enjoyable. All three wineries served interesting wine that gave you a good understanding the different characteristics found in the Montalcino region. The lunch was also great. Well worth the money

        Great Day Trip
        We had an enjoyable and memorable day on this trip. Julianna, our guide, was awesome. We appreciated the small group on our trip. There were so many highlights - San Gimignano, lunch at the winery, the alabaster artist, and Volterra! We highly recommend this trip!

        Nice wine tour
        We visited three wineries and had a lunch at one of the wineries which was owned by an American and her Italian husband. The lunch and the winery was really nice and a highlight of the day along with our amazing guide Mattia. Thanks to him we learned a whole lot about both wine and wine making. Would definitely recommend!

        Best tour of the Brunello region we have ever encountered
        This was the second time we ventured out for a wine tasting and by far this was the best. Our guide, Marco, claimed it was his first day, but there wasn’t anything to indicate he wasn’t a pro. He was extremely knowledgeable about the area, the history and wine. Very engaging, funny and it made me feel like we were old friends. The tour visited three family owned, small wineries high up in the hills. The first gave us a very thorough understanding of the production process and the strict standards they had to meet. The second, run by the grandson of one of the original members of the Brunello consortium, served excellent wine together with one of the most delicious lunches we had ever tasted. This man is not only a great wine master but an exceptional chef as well. Our third visit took us to a small vineyard run by a brother and sister that took over from their aging parents to keep the tradition alive. Again excellent wine and a good presentation by the host. I highly recommend this company and this tour to anyone visiting the area.

        Fabulous Private Transfer Tour
        We booked a private tour with pickup in Rome, a stop in Montepulciano, and drop off in Siena with Tuscan Escapes. From the first email Giorgia was very helpful with organizing and planning our custom daytrip. Andrea, our driver, was nice, punctual, and an excellent driver. They coordinated lunch at a winery for us after our visit to Montepulciano, and allowed us plenty of time to explore the town by ourselves. We also did a group tour from Siena to San Gimignano and Volterra which was also great- I left a separate review for that but I just wanted to note that whether a group or private tour, you are in good hands with Tuscan Escapes!

        Siena is absolutely beautiful! Ambra our guide was terrific! Highly recommend!
        Siena is a beautiful city, with so much to see! This 2 hour tour offers a nice glimpse of this historic and unique place. The history and pride of the Sienese people was clearly evident in our guide Ambra’s sharing of her city with our group! I highly recommend this tour.

        Special memories
        The countryside was spectacular. I enjoyed free time in the villages, and all that was included on this tour. The high point was the dinner at a local farm/vineyard. First of all, the setting was stunning. But the warm and personal nature of the meal:cooked by the Mother, in their home, was the high point. We sat and ate with the family. It was such an authentic experience , which I will treasure the memory for years to come. I also want to single out our guide, Necco (sp?). He went out of his way to ensure that I had safe transportation home. That was above and beyond what he had to do, at the end of a very long day. My sincere thanks go out to him.

        Beautiful cities, awful leader
        These areas of Italy are beautiful. Unfortunately we had a guide (Nello) who did not understand his role on the tour. He asked guests to take his photo, cut out the group’s free time because he wanted to have coffee, he refused to turn on the AC despite a guest’s request, he even tasted the wine on the wine tasting (not much—-but he was our driver!). He also got angry when an older woman on the trip needed to use the restroom. He failed to share the plan each time we stopped, and did not stick to what little guidance we had been given about what to expect. He seriously had no business guiding a tour. I can’t agree with the other positive reviews.

      We took a private tour from Hotel Athena in Siena to Montepulciano and Pienza. Our guide was amazing. Guglielmo was a joy from start to finish. His English was impeccable, his knowledge was amazing and he could not have been nicer. Highly recommend him. We enjoyed Pienza very much - it was a nice surprise as we were not sure what to expect there. We also stopped at a small town where a husband/wife ran a small local store and it exposed us to the culture and pride that Italians have in their home towns. They were warm and welcoming. Although we did not understand much Italian, their smiles and warmth welcomed us in a way that was something I will remember forever. Georgia was our contact at TuscanEscapes. We ran into some travel delays and she was able to credit our first tour and reschedule for us very quickly. She was extremely responsive and easy to work with. We have booked a few more tours with them and look forward to our next experience with them.

      Best day ever! Marco, our guide, was knowledgeable, organized and personable. He gave us wonderful history and facts about the area and about the wineries.
      The 2 wineries were fabulous! Each unique and experts in the region. Lunch was amazing as well!
      I would give Marco, Tuscan Escapes and the wineries 10 stars! Grazie mille !

      Magnificent. Everything about this tour was perfect. Our guide, Guglielmo, was wonderful. He answered every question and provided an abundance of information that was so interesting and relevant. He was so professional yet warm and friendly. And so accommodating to any and every request. On this tour you get to become part of the culture not just part of the tour. There are special stops along the way that are unique and unforgettable. The lunch on the farm was delicious with spectacular views. I would go back just to eat and sip wine! The wine tasting in Multipulciano was wonderful. We ordered a case shipped home!

      From the very start of booking this tour with Giorgia to the end of the day with Guglielmo, the customer service was spectacular. Above and beyond.

      Don’t miss this tour!

      This is my second time using Tuscan Escapes for a private wine tour. They are excellent with communication, on time pick up, clean cars and most of all, professional guides. Daniele (our guide) was fun, knowledgeable and brought us to three very vineyards. Each had a very different personality, starting with a family owned vineyard for generations, lunch at a “bigger” vineyard and ended with a very small vineyard where we sat in the home with owner having wine and sharing his stories. I personally LOVED this last experience. We never felt rushed or pressured to buy anything. Although, we did because the wine was outstanding at all of them.

      I would highly recommend this company. They never disappoint!
