What to expect
  • Make your way to the Santa Maria Novella Train Station in central Florence for your morning departure. Once you climb aboard the air-conditioned coach, sit back and relax, knowing that the rest of the whirlwind day in Tuscany is planned in advance for you.  The day's first stop is the city of Siena, where you can choose to take a guided city tour, including entrance to Siena Cathedral, or explore independently at your own pace.  Leaving Siena, enjoy the scenery as the bus enters the Chianti wine region. Arrive at a vineyard, where you can explore the wine cellar and olive grove, then sit down for a traditional Tuscan lunch comprised of fresh bread, pasta, salad, and cold cuts, accompanied by a wine tasting. (If the tour option without lunch is chosen, this part of the tour is not included but there will be more time spent in San Gimignano). Following lunch travel onward to San Gimignano, where you'll explore the squares, cobbled streets, and medieval towers on a guided tour.  The day's last stop is Pisa, where you will visit Cathedral Square, home to the Pisa Duomo, Baptistry, and the Camposanto monumental cemetery. At the famous Leaning Tower of Pisa, you can upgrade your tour to include a skip-the-line admission ticket. On the return to Florence, relax and leave the driving to the experts after a long day.

My son and I took this tour and will never forget the experience. Our guide, Alessandro, was excellent. I would recommend this company to anyone visiting Italy.

So amazing! Our main guide Alessandro was entertaining and informative! He made sure we walked away from the experience safely and with a deeper understanding of the region. I truly can’t recommend adding the lunch part of the trip enough! It was the best meal I have ever had and there was an amazing view and picture opportunity at the farm! Sienna, San Gimignano, and Pisa were amazing and this is a great option for people who want to experience and learn about these places but don’t have a lot of time to do so!

Ps. Some of the best gelato in the world is in San Gimignano. Make sure to get the name from tour guide you won’t regret it!

Perfect introductory trip to Tuscany with the highlight being the farm lunch. Siena and San Gimigniano are breathtakingly beautiful and full of history and we are going to come back to explore further.
Alessandro is the perfect guide and is a repository of historical and local knowledge. All in all, this was well worth it.

This was one of the best tours. Olivia was faboulous. Our driver which I'm ashamed to same we cannot seem to recall his name. However his driving skills were impeccable. Thank you for a wonderful day. 2 women with walkers made the day with no problem. Of course we didn't do the walking tour. This day was amazing. Thank you again

What was initially a just brief trip to Pisa, became so much more when we joined this tour from Florence and saw much more of this beautiful region. From Siena's rich history, to lunch in the Tuscan countryside, we had an amazing time that opened up our trip much more than we had planned. Olivia was a great host! She is so knowledgeable, friendly, and took the time to learn each of our (many) names! Highly recommended for those who wouldn't be comfortable driving around and want to get stuck right into the region and its surroundings. Would definitely go again and absolutely recommend.

Notwithstanding the fact that this was an awesome one-day tour of all the major highlights of Tuscany which we couldn't have logistically accomplished ourselves in one day, Alessandro - our tour leader - was the highlight of this tour for us.

He is so incredibly fun and friendly and knowledgeable and energetic and animated, none of the other tours we did in Italy compared to how amazing Alessandro was. He was really good at maintaining time discipline for the big group of us, and never made it feel like this was a big group tour for us.

Siena, Chianti winery (delicious food/wine/views), San Gimignano, Pisa... what more can I say other than book this tour if you don't have much time in Tuscany and want to hit all the major sights. I'm glad we did! Then next time, rent a car and do the countryside at a more leisurely pace.

Grazie mille, Alessandro!

This was one of the highlights of our week in Florence. Our guide Olivia was attentive, well-organized and very knowledgeable. We also had a local guide in Sienna which was much appreciated. The farm lunch was a little bit of heaven - sitting outdoors looking over the Tuscan countryside eating tasty food served with great wine. The servings of food and wine were very generous. The tour is very good value and a great way to get of taste of Tuscany.

It was great day tour. My husband and I enjoyed every second of it. I highly recommend it, it was a great way for us to relax and enjoy the beauty of Tuscany region without worrying about rushing, commute time, parking etc.

Stefano: Thank you so much for an excellent tour. Thank you for taking our pictures and staying around waiting for us while we went up the Pisa tower.

Overall staff was friendly and professional, bus was clean, tour experience/content was great! and Lunch was delicious, farm to table concept.

We will definitely be back sometime in the future for more tours with "Walkabout Florence Tours"

This tour was a lovely experience of Tuscany. Sara was an excellent guide. The day was busy but full of interesting sightseeing, discovering of Tuscany, its history and art. Lunch with wine testing was fine. We would prefer to spend more time in Pisa where we arrived 30 minutes before last entrances, and less time in San Gimignano.
