OMG! This experience is worth every penny!! The staff was very informative and kind. The places we visited were stunning but the best part was the Tuscan lunch with the wine tasting. It was just ABSOLUTELY PERFECT! If I could give 10 stars I would!

We had a great time on this day trip. Our guide Martha from CAF Tours was extremely up beat and knowledgeable, along with our driver for the day, Massimo! The day flies by, I would have like a little more time in Siena but I wouldn’t have wanted to cut time anywhere else.

Chianti - easy in one day
Ann_S
, May 2022
Easy way to see Chianti in a day. But be aware of long walks from the parking up to the villages. Unfortunately we were in a bus with dirty windows and a black sun curtain in tje front window so we missed a lot of the fantasic landscaoe because of that.

Great locations. Winery was a nice touch. Siena parking situation a nightmare. Guide could have shown a little more interest in the trip.

Marta is a great tour guide
Stephen_W

There was more walking than we expected from the description. We were disappointed in the winery that we visited. The reason we give a 5 star is because our tour director, Marta, was fabulous! She was friendly, flexible, and interested in all passengers having the best experience. Very intuitive in what folks needed. Really made our trip a fun day

We had a ball!! Lovely guide Martha then a different, equally good lady in Siena to show us around. The history, particularly in Siena blew us away. Got ice cream at the best ice cream shop in the world! Drank authentic chianti! Took photos of the spectacular scenery. A fantastic day, well worth any expense!

Nice Towns, Bad Guide
Robert_C
, Apr 2022
While the towns visited were beautiful, I was very disappointed with this tour. The tour guide was not very engaging and did not give good information. We were often confused with the schedule, the bus was late picking us up after each town and the guided walking tour of Sienna took up all of our time. We were not able to visit any of the shops there.

Loved the cities the tours were only so so
JessicaPierfelice
, Apr 2022
Enjoyed the places we visited. The guided walk through siene was only so-so. We didn’t feel engaged and the church line was so long you either saw the church or do some shopping. I know a schedule is important, but the guide from city to city always gave the impression of rushing and would start to round us up 15mins before the time she had said. We needed up back 40 mins early and it would have been nice to have that time in the cities. However, we loved the cities we visited, the lunch and wine was great, and it was a great way to experience Tuscany when you only had a little bit of time

Almost excellent. Little time in Siena.

Lovely agenda, poorly managed
Emma_B
, Oct 2021
The day itself was wonderful! We were very disappointed with the lack of COVID awareness. We booked the tour based on the description “reduced numbers” due to covid and using smaller buses There were 31 people on a big bus, not what I would call reduced We were all sat very closely There was no mask enforcement by the guide, I actually saw a fellow passenger have to tell another passenger to pull his mask up. His wife was pregnant so how did the guide not enforce basic checks?? No hand gel given to people getting on and off the bus, only one hand gel bottle by the toilet. No cleaning, very disappointing. To the point that my friend and I wore 2 masks as others clearly didnt care I suggest the guides are reminded they have a responsibility to remind ALL guests masks should be worn, including themselves

Tuscany bus tour
Tim_K
, Oct 2021
Our tour to Tuscany was great! Our tour guide was fabulous, great bus driver also. We visited several small walled cities, had a wine tour and lunch that was also fabulous! I’d been to Italy several times before, but this was my husband’s first time there and it gave him a nice taste of Tuscany without having to drive. I’d definitely recommend this tour and this very reliable company!
