I had been on this tour before however my cousin whom I was travelling with really wanted to visit Tuscany. I wasn't anticipating any WOWs since I had been there. But there were definitely WOWs around every corner. Each time we visited another location the vistas were incredible. The weather couldn't have been any better especially since when we left from the states the forecast daily was rainy and cloudy. The forecasters couldn't have been more wrong. We left very early and had a comfort stop which was like a mini mall where you could pick up specialties of the area. Our local guide in Montepulciano was Guilia from Siena, she was friendly yet professional, very pleasant and quite knowledgeable about the area architecture and the history. She made the climbing of all those hills more interesting. She was captivating.
In Montalcino, the Gregorian chant was very special especially since the Monks are being called back to France so there will no longer have monks to do the chant after the end of this year. Our wine tasting lunch was right next door at a wine cellar. Lunch was very yummy and the wine was delightful with the accompanying food. Again the scenery was beautiful through the hills toward Pienza. There we stopped at the Duomo which was the family home of Pope Pius 11. We got back to where we started with many stories to share about the area and our day. Bravo!

We really enjoyed our day trip to Tuscany. Our tour guide, Peter, has a very big impact on giving this tour 5 tours. Peter was punctual, nice, charasmatic and VERY informative. He made the 2 hour trip on the bus a breeze by giving the history of most of the towns we passed. All of the places we visited were wonderful and will leave a lasting impression. We really enjoyed the winery and the food there was delicious. Everything was very fresh and full of flavor.

This was a great tour. My only suggestion would be to leave more time for shopping in Montepulcino, rather than Pienza, as there are more shops in the former. All tour guides were excellent.
