Hop aboard your luxury coach in Siena and begin the journey with your guide. As you go, learn more about the history behind this beautiful landscape as you watch the vineyards roll by from the windows.

Make your first stop in the town of Monteriggioni, where you enjoy some free time to wander independently. As you explore, note the surrounding ring of 13th-century walls and turrets, which once served as Siena’s main line of defense against the Florentine armies.

Arrive in San Gimignano in the late afternoon, with free time to check out the Collegiata di San Gimignano, shop for hand-crafted pottery and leather goods or admire the medieval architecture and impressive towers.

Then travel to a rustic farmhouse just out of town for a traditional Tuscan dinner, complemented by red Chianti blends and tastings of San Gimignano’s famous white wine, Vernaccia. Watch the sunset over San Gimignano and the surrounding landscape while you’re served fresh vegetables, cured meats, and cheeses out on the terrace.

After dinner, enjoy a relaxing trip back to Siena.

Great Trip

From the moment David (Michelangelo) picked us up this was one of those days you didn’t want to end. We were a party of four enhanced with another couple who helped make a really enjoyable experience. David’s knowledge and advice was both informative and enjoyable. Time enough was given to our various visits before arriving at Le Masse for our wine tastings where Christina’s enthusiasm for her vineyard was so obvious. The meal we had at Poggio Alloro as the sun set and the lights of San Gimignano came on was beyond expectations. Food and drink were of quality and plentiful. Highly recommend this trip and David’s guidance.

Enjoyed the tour quite a bit, but would have prefered a bit more wine tasting. The one winery we did go to was charming and the owner was great. The guides were very good. I did feel that the claim were having dinner in a farm house was just absurd it was a plesant, but relatively large, restaurant in the country.

First the good: The guide/driver was excellent San Gimignano was everything we expected Then the not so good: The tour spent an excessive amount of time at the wine tasting Monteriggioni, a perfectly preserved medieval town was hardly perfectly preserved, every available building within the walls was utilised either as a tourist trinket shop or an Osteria. Far too touristy! The classic Tuscan dinner at a local farmhouse turned out to be at a commercial restaurant where our small group was joined by over 100 people from other tours. The meal was probably the worst food we had in a month in Italy.

We never saw the sunset which is why I took this tour; I've been to San Gimignano twice before. Our guide seemed overly fond of the Querciavalle winery and we spent an inordinate amount of time there. I enjoy Chianti but was not impressed with theirs.

We enjoyed this tour very much, wine tasting and San Gimignano was our favourite parts. Milo was an absolute star, very knowledgeable about tuscan wines. I wish we had more time because I would have loved to do another tour with them. We never visited Monteriggioni which was very disappointing.
