Well done tour/The tour guide Sandro I think was excellent, very engaging and thorough. Excellent views of the Tuscan landscape. Sienna was very fascinating. And Pisa what is more beautiful than I have given credit… A relaxing tour highly recommend, thank you Jeff and Michelle Capen

Sylvies amazing
Emma_M, Sept 2023
We were a small group (12) and our guide Sylvie was the absolute best. Our last stop involved a train delay (3hrs) that was out of everyone’s control but Luca and Sylvie worked fast and effectively to organise a private bus (at no cost to us) to take us back to Milan.

Loved the tour, got to see a lot! Enjoyed the meal and got the optó meet people from other countries to learn more cultures.
Great day with sienna and the lunch being the highlights
Diane_H, Sept 2023
We loved sienna and the tour guide was very good with the cathedral tour. Would have loved more time but understand that there was a lot to do in a day. The guides on the bus were very friendly and helpful. As a non drinker wasn’t sure about the wine tasting and lunch but was fantastic. It was great fun and the lunch was lovely. Very enjoyable day but tiring in a good way .
Long trip.
Bill_Y, Sept 2023
Too much riding in the bus and walking to the tour. We never would have gone if we knew that we had very little time to enjoy the places. Guide and driver where good.
Excellent friends trip
Lina_L, Sept 2023
I was with 2 of my girlfriends and we enjoyed it very much. Our guide Lisa was amazing. The views were amazing. Bring a blanket or sweater for the bus ride. You can leave it in the bus, so you don't have to carry it. If you get cold easily, you will need it, it gets a bit cold in the bus.
Best time in Florence
Caryn_S, Sept 2023
Eli made the entire experience fun and interactive. I would’ve liked more city facts, but anything we asked about she gave us more info on so it was great. Plenty of drinks, GREAT food and got to visit local spots we never would’ve known about otherwise. Highly recommend!!
It was a nice overview of...
Stephen_L, Sept 2023
It was a nice overview of the 3 cities. We could always use more time in them but that is the price you pay to see them in a day. Be prepared to walk a ways to the actual sights from the bus as it seems they are parking farther away to help keep the sites in better shape. Roberto our guide was excellent in giving us information about our next stop and our driver Cosimo was very good as well getting us everywhere in safety.
Great experience
Sally_W, Sept 2023
We have just completed two 12 hour day trips booked with VIATOR from Florence train station (bus terminal) to Cinque Terre and Pisa, Siena, San Gimmignano. Both 12 hours. We couldn’t fault anything from start to finish. These two trips were well organised, professional and run with precision. The staff are both helpful and friendly (ticket office + guides). We ran late on our 2nd trip (bad traffic), hence missed the coach! The ticket office staff were most helpful, advising us on how to catch up with the group by getting a train to Siena and meeting them at the first stop of the tour. Using WhatsApp the tour company advised and responded throughout our journey helping us to meet the group. What could have been a disaster and disappointment for us, was salvaged by the instructions and advice of the tour company. Our advice to anyone wanting to do these trips is do NOT be late! The coach can’t wait. A huge thank you to our lovely guides Fredericka, Roberto and both drivers (their names we can’t remember). Both guides were friendly, helpful, professional, punctual and organised. We really enjoyed both of these trips.
PEGGY_D, Sept 2023
The places visited were absolutely beautiful. Comfortable coach ride and the tour guide was excellent. There is alot if walking on uneven surfaces, so please be sure this is for you. There were 2 individuals who fell and banged up their knees.
Every stop was well worth it. Beautiful da

The good and the not so good
John_B, Sept 2023
First off let me start by saying this wasn't what I was hoping for, but that's only because our only experience with a large tour group was 15 years ago when we did a wine tasting tour of Napa. In that respect this experience was very similar. When we met at the meeting point it was exactly the same as Napa, many tour companies trying to herd their guests onto one of many tour busses. First stop Siena. Our tour guide Stephano was very good, explaining the history of the city and the different sites we'd want to see after the guided tour was finished. We started in the city square where Stephano gave us a quick history of the square and the layout of the city before walking up to the cathedral. The cathedral was breathtaking, with great artwork from a lot of the Italian artists of the time including Michaelangelo who lived in Siena for several years in his 20s. After a quick cappuccino and a toilette break it was back to the bus for a noon wine tasting and lunch. The wine was amazing and the pours were generous, maybe a little too generous as some of the tour members imbibed a little too much, but not to the point where they were overly obnoxious as our Napa experience. From there it was onto San Gimignano, an old fortress town with lots of history that Stephano explained to us before arriving. Once there we were free to explore, but as with Siena only had about an hour before we needed to be back to the bus, but no matter, unlike Siena, San Gimignano to us was nothing more than a big fortress renovated to have store fronts built into the bottom floors of each part of the fortress. That said, being built on a hill it did have some spectacular views of the surrounding area. All in all it was probably the least favorite of the cities we visited. After our 55 minutes were up we again headed back to the bus before departing for Pisa. This is where things got a little crazy for me and my wife, and really drove home for us the feeling that the entire tour felt rushed. The bus took us along what's probably considered one of the most scenic routes through Tuscany, but at what felt like about 100kms/ hour it was completely nuts with our driver ripping through these undulating, twisty turny narrow roads, tailgating vehicles in front of us to the point where people would pull off the road to let our bus go tearing by. This is also a road a lot of bike riders take when touring Tuscany and as a bike rider it infuriated me the driver would be so wreckless in what felt like a rush to get to our next town of Pisa. If it was a memorable scenic ride they were hoping to provide they failed miserably and would've been better off taking the highway instead. We finally made it to our last destination of Pisa, but for us the mood was somewhat lost after the terrifying bus ride from San Gimignano. After departing the bus our tour guide led us to the square, which even at 500PM was still very busy. Another 50 minutes to take it all in before we had to depart. We would've like more time to check out the church and other attractions, but time was short and we needed to get back to the bus. The trip back to the terminal was uneventful, thankfully all highway during afternoon rush hour, so we were finally able to relax on the 90 minute ride back k to Florence. So in a nutshell the towns were all beautiful in their own unique way, Siena was far and away our favorite, the wine tasting and lunch were enjoyable, but everything felt very rushed, but I understand it's a lot to take in, and a lot of kilometers to cover in an 8 hour tour. It will be interesting to see if Viator post my less than.4 star review.
Fun and formative.
Alfonso_G, Sept 2023
Explanations were awesome. Wine tasting was incredible. Guides made time very fun. A new way to see locations, very recomended.
