Sandra led our group for the tour - she was fantastic. A wealth of information, always ready to help, and very fluent with languages. She'd been travelling outside of Italy for over 10 years made it easy for her to understand and connect with the diverse nationalities that made up the tour group. She made the tour quite personal - remembered everyone's names. Never seen that happen on a tour with 20-30 people.

Had the best basil pesto pasta which is a speciality of the region with the tour.

Nicely organised trip - highly recommended.

I took only 2 tours on my 3 week vacation in italy - the best of tuscany tour (and inspired by their delivery on this, the Cinque Terre Trek by the same company).

Agatha, the guide, did a fantastic job. She's an art student pursuing doctoral studies with degrees from Poland, Florence and UK. She loves her job and it showed very clearly during the tour.

The itinerary was perfect - we didnt' feel rushed at any place; enough time for exploring each location. Lots of guidance from Agatha on shopping, sightseeing, and even on how to go about doing things in other parts of Florence which were not included in the tour.

The lunch was fantastic with options if you preferred not to eat meat, or needed more choice. 4 different wines were taste - 6 bottles were placed on a table for 10 people. I'm surprised everyone walked straight !

Highly recommended !

Walkabout Florence tours are AMAZING!!! Barbara, Freddy & Stefano are the perfect guides! Extremely friendly, knowledgeable, caring and funny! I can hardly beleive Walkabout Florence only charges 90 euros for each of these all day tours that include an amazing lunch!! BEST VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY! The Walkabout buses are newer, very clean & comfortable with excellant airconditioning. The bus drivers are the most incredibly skilled drivers I've ever seen as they have to manuver those big buses through some pretty tight places! We will NEVER forget the Cinque Terre Trek! Strenuous but unforgetabl! The Best of Tuscany tour was magical! THANK YOU WALKABOUT FLORENCE for making our first trip to Italy unforgettable!!

By far one of the best things my wife and I did in Italy! So beautiful and you get to do it hiking from one town to the next.

Our guides, Freddy and Angel, were simply awesome! You can tell their so passionate about their jobs!

The views of the coast, water, and towns are just simply beautiful! Such an enjoyable day, getting close with all the scenery.

Another cool thing was Freddy wanted to make sure everybody's trip to Florence was going to be a great one. He came up to every person near the end of the bus trip and gave all sorts of recommendations... restaurants, bars, sites, etc...

If you're in Florence, definitely do this!

Be prepared to do some hiking though. Wear comfortable clothes and shoes! My wife and I wore tennis shoes and that was sufficient.

This tour is a simple and enjoyable way to get a brief look at some wonders of Tuscany, all in one day. Sienna, magnificent, delicious lunch, San Gimignano, beautiful tuscan country side, then Pisa.
Our tour guide Stefano was fantastic; entertaining, charming, efficient, and knowledgable .
We highly recommend this tour, especially if you want a hassle free way to see a lot but have limited time. A real Taste of Tuscany !
