Siena and San Gimignano Small Group Day Trip from Florence
Reviewed by: janice c, July 2012
The trip to Siena and San Gimignano was fantastic. Our driver, Maurio, met us on time at the designated place which was easy to find. It was difficult for me to get through on the phone to confirm the reservation 24 hours ahead of time as requested so I was anxious about the meeting plan. The van was a luxury Mercedes Benz with all the anemities. Maurio was a fantastic driver who told us a lot about the places we passed. His love for the beauty of his country was contagious. He told us interesting facts about Siena and San Gimignano and Greve and wine making. He immediately gave us a choice as to which roads to drive which got the group to discuss and decide. I only wish that the trip could have been a little longer. We met at 8:45 and were back by 5:00 and it was not enough time to explore the towns, but a wonderful taste for a longer visit next time.

Our guide Jonathan was a perfect host, driver and guide for the day. He knows the area, listens to the needs of the guests, and was fun to share the day with in a nice Mercedes Van

Jonathan was a wonderful guide and incredibly knowledgeable about anything we threw his way. It was our first tour with Viator and the reason we scheduled two more while in Italy. The tour was so much fun. The cathedral in Siena was only second to St. Peters Basilica in the Vatican. Unfortunately, the hills were two much for us to maneuver to explore the city and therefore we spent more time there as free time than we liked. The last stop, San Gimignano was our favorite and we could have spent more time there. Would definitely recommend this tour and Viator.

Raphael was a funny, excellent tour guide. He noticed that he had many photographers on his tour and was always providing insight on great places to take pictures from. What a wonderful surprise to also visit Monteriggioni. Highly recommend this tour and hope you get Raphael too.
