I took a half-day tour of the Chianti region, which took us to Monteriggioni Fortress, Castellina and Poggio Amorelli Winery. What a fabulous experience. We travelled in an air-conditioned coach bus. The tour guide spoke English, French and Spanish very well. The owner of the winery was very welcoming. He's been featured in magazines, so it was great to have visited his winery. I read reviews from foreigners who purchased cases of wine and/or olive oil to be shipped abroad. They were apparently overcharged. That's too bad, so I'm glad I didn't do that. I would have been disappointed and left with an ugly taste in my mouth, pun intended. Right now, all I have is very fond memories of that place, so my suggestion is to just buy a bottle (or two) to take with you in your suitcase. Anyway, everything about this tour via My Tour was exceptional. The next time I'm in Italy, I will once again book my excursions through them.

This tour is a great way to experience this beautiful area in Italy. Fabio was very knowledgeable and friendly. Would have liked a little more time in Pisa, however we had a lot packed into the day. San Gimignano is lovely, but really liked Siena. Our local guide was very informative and friendly. We found the story regarding the Palio di Siena horse race particularly interesting as we had read about it but to actually be there was great. Unfortunately it was very wet which made things a little uncomfortable. Lunch at the winery was good although the wine tasting was a bit much for me. There were so many wines tasted and the amount was very generous!! Definitely worth the money. Lynne and Wayne.

We set off in a really bashed up bus. However the interior of the bus was clean and tidy and the guide brought a very relaxed and enjoyable attitude to the tour. It rained almost all day and the sun didn't come out til late afternoon. It was thought the bad weather would put a stop to the boat part of the journey, however eventually the weather cleared and the boat journey took place. First of all, we didn't visit five places but visited four places, there really isn't enough time to visit all five places in one day. As it was, there was only limited time in each place just visiting four of the villages. The villages are very unique, but far from suitable for anyone with a disability, the villages are built into seaside cliffs and very steep streets and steps all over the place. You will quite literally not see anything like it anywhere else, each village is very unique. We also liked the fact that we went on train journies to get in between the villages, that in itself was a unique experience, even a trip on a double decker train was very unique. The train stations and train tracks go under the cliffs. The views are stunning in each village, on one side there is sea and the other side is the coastal villages. We had dinner provided in a very decent seafront restaurant in one of the seaside villages. The food was really enjoyable and the provided plenty of drinks, seafood, pasta and cheese etc. It wasn't like a proper meal but it was several courses and it was perfect for a large group with limited amount of time to eat and drink. The tour guide was brilliant making sure he explained the history of the places, the nature of the places and where to meet up.

Family of four (including 2 teenagers) thoroughly enjoyed our day tour of San Gimignano, SIena and Chianti. Free pick up from our accommodation to the bus stop, on time and easy. Our tour guide Fabio was friendly and very informative. Lots of local knowledge and interesting facts. The day ran very smoothly, a very comfortable air conditioned bus (which was great as it was a very hot day). There was a good balance of free time and guided tours in the medieval towns. Especially enjoyed the wine tasting and lunch, a great opportunity to meet the others on the tour. Definitely worth the 55 euro and even the children didn't find it boring!! Would recommend this tour as it is a great way to get a taste of a beautiful part of Italy.
