Our tour guide, Sara was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of the region; friendly, informative and helpful. The winery lunch was delicious and the view spectacular. Kudos to our coach driver (not sure how to spell his name). A fantastic taste of Tuscany.

Our family really enjoyed this tour! It is an easy way to see highlights of Tuscany with just enough commentary and plenty of time to explore each location. Our tour guide was Olivia. She made us feel like the entire tour was tailored just for us! While on the road and at every stop, she provided us with information to ensure we knew everything about the location, from the history to best items to shop for at each location. She was kind and considerate..a professional in every sense of the word. Fernando was an amazing driver. He navigated the large, comfortable, and spacious bus through impossible turns and traffic conditions. He even did a quick clean/sanitization of the bus mid-way through the tour! For families with children, the travel time between stops was never too long and worked perfect for our family's bathroom breaks. Our thoughts on the locations: Siena - Olivia handed off the tour to a local from Siena, Analisa. She was was thorough in her description of her home while her humor and passion kept everyone engaged. A beautiful town, Michaelangelo's St Paul was a highlight for me and our children loved hearing about the Palio di Siena. Excellent. Lunch in Chianti - A quick tour of the vineyard and wine making process, by the family who owns it, seemed a little rushed, but it was not the primary purpose of the tour. The wine tasting with the meal was really nice and we appreciated the time afforded for us to buy some wine. Beautiful views of the countryside and San Gimignano from the terrace where we ate! San Gimignano - This was the favorite of my wife and ten-year old son (mine too)! The Medieval Manhattan was a sight to see! The views of the countryside were gorgeous, the people were very kind, and did we mention the gelato??? World champion and well-deserved!!! It is also a nice place to shop. There is no tour here. Olivia tells you about the city before your arrival so you can maximize your time once you arrive. Pisa - The Field of Miracles was beautiful. Time is a bit limited here. Since, we purchased tickets to go up the Leaning Tower we were unable to visit the inside of the Baptistry and Monumental Cemetery. However, it was nice to see the Cathedral and go up the tower and looking back, we would not have changed our choice. This was my 8-year old daughter's favorite part of the trip. She loved climbing the Leaning Tower of "Pizza!" Following our tower climb (which is scheduled for a set time), we tried to rush over to the Baptistry, but it and the cemetery were already closed for the evening. It was early-April, so the hours may change during the high season. This was a bucket-list trip for our family, and Olivia, Fernando, and the Walkabout Team could not have made it better! By the way, Mauro (the owner) was there to meet us before both of our adventures with Walkabout....talk about first-class customer service!

What a perfect day! We were pressed for time during our stay in Florence so we did this tour hoping we would get enough time in each of the stops - and we definitely did. Stefano did a wonderful job of providing relevant information as we drove to each location. He was also friendly and laid back, which we enjoyed. Our guide in Siena also did a great job (can't remember her name, but he was very humorous). I LOVED getting to go into the Duomo - it's been a dream of mine to visit this church and it did not disappoint! We enjoyed our tour and lunch at Fattoria Poggio Alloro winery (and I very much enjoyed the wine tasting!). Then we went up to San Gimignano with free time to explore. The only issue for us was that we got a bit turned around in our exploration and nearly missed the bus. We'd walked so quickly up the hill from the bus stop that we didn't quite remember how to get back down. But we made it just in time and then went to our last stop at Pisa. We paid for the Tower climb and it was a very interesting climb - that tilt really messed with our heads going up and back down, but the views (through a fence) are quite beautiful at sunset. We loved our tour and all the beautiful sites we saw!

Had a long but wonderful day on this tour! Alessandro the guide was very friendly and informative, nothing was too much trouble for him. The sites included in the tour were fab and I’d definitely recommend including the lunch and wine tasting as part of your ticket - the food, drink and views at the farm were incredible! Couldn’t recommend this trip more!
