This activity will end right where it started.
Board your coach in Florence, and travel into the hills of Tuscany where the city of Siena awaits. Opt to take a guided tour of the city with a visit to Siena Cathedral to admire its renowned Gothic architecture. Or, make the most of some free time to set your own pace, and perhaps enjoy a coffee in the sun alongside the locals.

From Siena, return to the Tuscan countryside to explore the Chianti wine region. Stretch your legs with a stroll through a vineyard, olive grove and wine cellar, and refuel with a Tuscan winery lunch. As you sit surrounded by the grape vines, meet other visitors to the area and indulge in local treats such as cold cuts of meat, salad, pasta and fresh bread. Even better, a wine tasting takes place at the same time (not included in the tour option without lunch, guests will instead spend more time in San Gimignano)'

After lunch, journey onward to San Gimignano with its medieval towers, cobbled streets and squares. Explore the town’s historic center, cool down with a refreshing gelato and wander amid the 14 towers as you learn about their history.

Travel from San Gimignano to Pisa: your final stop of the day. Follow your guide to Cathedral Square to discover Pisa Duomo, Pisa Baptistry, the monumental cemetery (aka Camposanto) and, of course, the Leaning Tower of Pisa.

Return to Florence in the early evening, and finish your Tuscany tour with a drop-off at the start point.

Great Tuscany experience
Giulia_C
, Jun 2022
This was a fantastic experience, far exceeding my expectations! The guide, Stefano, was tremendously nice and able to make everyone enjoy and feeling comfortable, and was very caring of all the participants wellness. The cities we visited were wonderful, and the explanations provided during Siena tour were great. My companions and I really enjoyed the atmosphere at the farm during lunch time, when we had several wines and could appreciate the wonderful panorama of Chianti vineyards. The free time we spent in S.Gimignano and Pisa was wonderful too. All in all, we had an unforgettable experience, really helping in sparing time and energies, being able to see many important Italian sites in one single day-trip. Thanks to our guides Stefano, Paolo and Nicola!

Great tour! All the sites were beautiful! Make sure you book the lunch. You cant beat the setting. Alessandro and Emilio, our guide and driver, were super friendly. My mom has motion sickness, and they took great care of her so she didn’t feel sick during ride.

We travel internationally...
Amos_W

We travel internationally 4-6 times a year and usually find guided tours to be a waste of money where we end up wishing we would have just done the tour on our own using our phones and a little research beforehand. Not so with one. There is no way you can do all of the things on this itinerary on your own in one day. I got an international driving license and was planning on renting a car until I found this tour option. This tour is worth every penny. Comfortable bus with air conditioning and great views; nice movie about the Palio di Siena; tickets for Siena Duomo included; all you can eat organic homemade bread, pasta, salad, meats, and cheeses all from a farm (farm tour also included); four types of wines to taste/drink as much as you like; amazing Tuscan views of San Gimignano and wine country; Pisa Piazza del Duomo with tower tickets included; everything seamlessly coordinated so no time is wasted. What's not to like? We did everything I wanted in all three cities all in one day. I would suggest downloading MAPS.ME on your phone and then downloading offline maps of Siena, San Gimignano, and Pisa. I normally do that anyway when traveling. Pin 📌 (bookmark) where you wanna go to make the most of the free time they give you as it is limited and you wanna make the most of it. Doing that allowed us to add little extra things I was interested in during our free time. Thank you so much Angela/Walkabout. You freed up the other 3 days we have to enjoy and focus soley on Florence while our family is here.

This tour was fantastic! Sara made this experience extra special. It was nice having a tour guide from Tuscany that knew about the area and shared some native secrets. We also had another tour guide that shared more information about Siena. The bus was nice and clean and air conditioned. Fabio was our bus driver and drove safe. Overall my experience was amazing a memorable. The only feedback is there is no bathroom on the bus.

The medieval towns were amazing and the farm/lunch was our favorite thing we did in all of Italy! Angela was our tour guide and danielo was our driver, we couldn’t have asked for better people! They were always smiling and kind! An unbelievable experience!

Alessandro was extremely informative helpful and organized. Different people in our group had different needs and they were able to accommodate everyone. The villa gave us a delicious lunch with tasty wines and the staff there was very friendly. Lots of time on the bus but that is inevitable considering all the different areas visited. Again Allesandro and Emilio (bus driver) went above and beyond!

Not for solo travelers

Olivia, the tour guide, was sweet. She provided information on the areas we visited. Emiliano, the driver was careful on the road, pleasant person. However, there were 50 people, way too many during a time we are still facing COVID-19. I was only solo traveler in group. Great except when being placed in the “empty” seat in middle of couples and families.

Olivia and the driver (I forgot his name?) were absolutely great. What a nice way to explore Venice and the surrounding areas with a nice air conditioned bus. Though of course you do walk in hot sun ☀ too but not their fault. Great experience!!!

This tour is amazing and a perfect way to see many interesting places in one day! If you are lucky enough to have Alissandro as your tour guide - he will keep you engaged as he shares his knowledge and humour! The stops are enjoyable and the farm and food were awesome! Great bus driver as well!
