Sumptuous and stunning

Greta, our guided, and the driver were pleasant and professional. She was interested in each member of our small group. The lunch and wine tasting in an outdoor setting at the summer home of the wine’s producer were excellent. San Gimignano and Siena are stunning.

Post Covid 19 tours The trip was so relaxing, out tour guide and driver were so friendly, knowledgeable and accomodatig. We were happy too with their pick of where to have lunch. We went to Poggio Amorelli for wine , extra verging olive oil tasting, pasta making, and lunch, it was an amazing experience. Valentina our tour guide was very knowledgeable also, and she answered all our questions.

The locations represented Tuscany perfectly. Very small group. Great balance of local info and private time to roam. Wine and food were perfect!

There's no better way to take in Tuscany than with an all-inclusive roam through the countryside! We're glad you enjoyed it.

A glimpse of Siena
Ann_C

The highlight of this trip was the lunch at the vineyard. Absolutely delicious. The problem was that this left us with barely one hour to explore Sienna. Also, our guide Antonio, was a man of few words. He started strong on the way to our sights, but once we were there, he had very little to say. I saw other guides pointing out things that we just walked past. The entire bus ride back to Florence he was either silent or talked with our driver. We were very disappointed. I had book two other trips with this company, and those guides were outstanding.

Hello ambc05, Thank you very much for taking time to share your experience from your recent Tuscany Day Trip, we really value the feedback that we receive here at Walks! We are sorry to hear that your time on our Tuscany Day tour was less than wonderful, that is really not what we want for our guests to experience with us. We work incredibly hard to find and train the best guides in the markets that we operate in, and so are disheartened to learn that you felt our guide was anything but enthusiastic and chatty. For this particular tour, it can sometimes be hard for our guides to strike the right balance between allowing our guests to soak in the sights as they drive through the countryside, and engaging them in interesting discussions. We will certainly be taking your feedback onboard so that all of our guides on our Tuscany Day trip can improve wherever possible! We truly hope that we will see you again on another of our exciting excursions, as we would love another opportunity to really impress you! All the very best, The Walks Team

Adequate but uninspired
Carl_S
, Sep 2019
This tour was largely transportation, lunch, and tickets to the church at Siena, with a bare minimum of information provided. Too much time was spent at the adequate winery for the bland lunch, and there was just enough time to experience the main floor of Siena, but not really see anything else in detail. Guide was present and made sure everyone came back but otherwise mostly unengaged. Basically, you pay triple the price of the mega tours for a smaller group that doesn’t really take advantage being a smaller group. My suggestion would be to skip San Gimignano and just go to Siena by yourself on a train or by bus, spending the substantial money you’ll save on a guidebook and a nice lunch. If you want to drink a lot of wine, the winery was at least liberal with its bottles.

Hell opiopolo, Thank you for taking the time to share your feedback with us. We truly appreciate you taking the time to do so! We are terribly sorry to learn that your tour experience did not live up to your expectations finding that the majority of the tour was spent on transportation and that is lacked information. This is far from what we want for our tours. We work so hard to ensure our clients have the best possible experience and always strive to find a solution. If you're interested in discussing this matter further with our feedback team feel free to reach out at info@takewalks.com. All the best, The Walks Team

This was our first time to Italy and we wanted to make sure we were able to see the best of Tuscany. We saw this tour and signed up immediately based on other reviews. What we experienced was even better than our expectations. Not only is Tuscany one of the most beautiful places we've been to, but the experience we had due to our guide was incredible. A tour is only as good as the guide, and she made sure we had nothing short of an amazing time. Great food; great company; great information and great wine! I would recommend this tour to anyone. 5 stars without question!

My husband and I had a great time on this tour and would highly recommend. Greta was a fantastic tour guide and made sure everyone was happy the whole time. A highlight was definitely the wine lunch in chianti, one of the best wine tastings we had while in Italy and could not resist shipping some bottles home. I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants a great guide and to see some unique cities.

This was a fantastic tour. It rained most of the day but it was still great. San Gimignano was gorgeous, a small town with some of the best gelato. Then we had a delicious lunch and wine tasting. Above all was our excellent guide Violet. She made the trip informative, interesting and was funny as well. Worth every penny.

Spent the day touring in private mini van with a small group. Our tour guide was very informative, knowledgeable and funny. The three towns were all different and we had enough time to walk round by ourselves. Lunch at the eco tourist farm was wonderful, such an interesting place. Would highly recommend this tour.

Meeting point changed & we were not advised
Stephen_P

I have used Viator many times over the past few years, after booking I always print off the confirmation vouchers with barcode & take this on holiday. Never have I had an issue up to now. We arrived at the meeting point as advised 15 mins early, when no one appeared 20 mins later alarm bells rang! Immediately I rang the tel no. to be told that the meeting point had changed & email sent. All emails had been checked & we were not sent this! I said we were in a taxi & would catch up with the tour only 15 mins away but I was advised this was not possible. In fact no help was offered only a refund which has so far has not appeared! This was the last day of our holiday & my Birthday, customer service was appalling. Beware fellow travellers check via a phone call a day before because even their app doesn’t work! I’m sure the trip is lovely, this I sadly will never experience.

Wine tasting with 2 site seeing stops
ANDREW_T
, Apr 2019
Meeting instructions where a little vague and ended up a couple of minutes late. Guide (Antonio)was brilliant and had a lot of local knowledge that he relaid very clearly and couldn’t be more helpful all day long. The two site seeing stops where interesting although very busy with other tours. The winery turned out to be a farm - which was quiet and in the middle of nowhere,where the host showed us around the vineyards and also the bee hives!, once inside the farm we tasted two red wines and one white along with a pasta meal and then cheese with their local honey( very nice). Quite a long day (8.30am - 6.30pm), but most enjoyable!
