Enter the heart of Siena, and start the visit with your guide. Take off through the town's narrow streets and hear stories about Siena as you go. Skip the line to see the interior of the magnificent cathedral, and pass through the shell–shaped Piazza del Campo, where the Palio horse race is held twice a year. After your walking tour, enjoy some free time to enjoy Siena at your own leisure. Move on to San Gimignano, and admire the unique Tuscan landscape as you drive through marvelous scenery surrounded by olive trees, vines and old stone buildings on your way. Stop at a family owned wine estate to relax and enjoy a traditional Tuscan lunch for a taste of country hospitality. After lunch, take an easy drive to San Gimignano to finish your day. Famous for its splendid skyline of tall medieval towers, have free time to explore on your own. Discover the main street full of typical shops, have a look at the Collegiata (main church), or enjoy a gelato. Return to Florence in the late afternoon.

We booked this tour when another service provider cancelled at the last moment. And it turned out to be such a blessing in disguise. The tour started right on time, the minivan/bus was supremely comfortable, the guide and driver both were extremely kind and informative and the co-passengers were also super sweet. The entire trip is extremely scenic. We had ample amount of time in each location and loved it overall. Huge shoutout to Lorenzo and Andre who actually made this trip comfortable and enjoyable for us.

Lorenzo is a great and knowledgeable guide. We were around 15 people in tye tour, wish was great! Timing was great too, not rushed, but fast enough to enjoy Siena and San Gimignano. This tour really worth it. Only drawback: the single use earphone set. I didn’t know or I would have brought mine not the generate trash.

Great day with our guide Lorenzo and driver Andre. I was unsure about a small group tour vs a private tour, but it was perfect! Loved the mix of free time in each city and the guided tour. Everything ran efficiently and my husband and I had a great day!
