Alessandra was an amazing tour guide! We had only one day to explore the Tuscan countryside, in fact only 5 hours, and she put together a perfect itinerary for us. First, we went to a small family-run vineyard in Montalcino for some tasty Brunello and an unbelievable snack. The mother of the vineyard prepared a plate of bruschetta, fresh cheeses, prosciutto and other meats for us with olive oil the family grows and makes themselves as well. It was amazing and truly a unique experience! We stopped at one more vineyard before Alessandra took us to the town of Montalcino where we had an hour to walk around. Before leaving us, she showed us a perfect little spot to have a nice lunch. At the end of the day, Alessandra dropped us off in the town of Siena, leaving us with great recommendations of what to see and do in the town.
We did not plan to book Alessandra for a second day but we had such an amazing time with her that we used her for our drive from Siena to Florence. On the way, we were able to stop in San Gimignano for an hour which was such a perfect way to end our experience in the region. Before giving us some time to walk around, Alessandra hooked us up and introduced us to some of her friends who have shops in the adorable town. She even stayed with us for a bit to take some pictures for us with the gorgeous scenery. We would highly recommend Alessandra to anyone who is looking for a guide who is very knowledgeable on the region, very organized, fun to work with and reasonably priced as well!
