Fabulous 40th!

What a day! I can not imagine a more magical way to have spent my 40th birthday. We were unexpectedly delayed en route to our first destination due to an incident on the highway, however it was of little consequence given the ample time allowed throughout this day trip. Each town and each vista was more stunning than the next. Being able to explore freely in each location suited us perfectly whilst the information given by the guide remained interesting throughout the day. Highly recommend and would repeat again!

The order of the trip was backwards vs. the description here. They description sounds a lot more enticing. The roads and the three towns are super cute. It was very nice scenery. We drove through the Orcia Valley but there was no stop or pointing out of what is included in the description. The driver was very well skilled and the tour guide was nice.

Visit to Tuscany with wine tasting
Diana_C

Had a wonderful day trip to Tuscany with Constantino and Paul. We enjoyed the stops at Montepulciano, Pienza and Montalcino. We made a lot of nice purchases and had a great experience seeing a Etruscan cave and tunnel and visiting a castle for the wine tasting. Definitely a great bargain for this tour.

Alphonso our tour guide was entertaining and informative. Each of our stops gave us the time to explore independently. The wine tasting was wonderful and the venue unique. Highly recommend this tour to see a beautiful part of Tuscany especially if you are not visiting Italy for long.

The towns were beautiful and the green hills were breath taking. I highly recommend taking this tour to southern Tuscany and getting out of the city!

We traveled on a small bus with 27 in our group. Giulia kept our group informed on what to expect and gave us many interesting details on the areas we were seeing. The towns were lovely.
