First of all, find the bus station where you are meeting ahead of time, and use the bathroom first!

The bus ride to Siena was comfortable, and Siena is beautiful and I'm so happy we were able to visit. Their doumo is amazing, reminded me of Beetlejuice!

Guide on the bus was hard to hear as the audio wasn't the best, and a lot of talking as she was translating English and Spanish. It was okay, but I didn't really learn anything.

However, the wine tour isn't really a tour. The grounds are beautiful, yes, but you have dinner and taste a few wines. You do learn a fair amount about wine flavors and how to bring them out, but that is about it. It also says 'four glasses of wine' but after tasting I don't think we even had two and I didn't know if it was okay to ask for a full glass of one that you liked. My fault for not asking. And I know I sound like a gluttonous American, but some of the wines I didn't like and used the bucket to dump them out, and I love to sit and relax with a glass of wine, whereas I felt quite rushed in the wine demonstration.

Dinner was okay, I liked the appetizer meats, not the main course meat, and the lasagna was good, very simple. My boyfriend was upset at the lack of a desert (it was biscotti).

There was no tour of the grounds (which I asked on here but then booked before an answer was provided), no view of the wine cellars or vats (just one outside merely for a photo opp). Left, went back to Florence, got a late snack and more wine.

I actually felt as if it was just a glorified sales pitch to buy their wine, which we live in Utah and can't ship it here anyhow. I felt guilty also that we didn't buy any wine. Again, sales pitch.

As I'm writing this I'm realizing that I was upset over the tour as I really heard great things about vineyard and wine tours being the highlight of many vacations. I suppose I'll just have to return to Italy and try again.

In short: if you want dinner and wine tasting, book. If you want a tour of a vineyard or cellars look elsewhere.

Also, previous poster, no mention of a sunset though I did see it as we were boarding the bus to return to Florence.

When we arrived at the bus terminal for our tour, it was insanity. Tons of people and buses. Ciao had a line with check in. Went pretty smooth. Most of the buses were huge 50-60 people. I felt dread. Not my idea of a good time.

Our bus arrived. It was 25 or so people. Departure time came and went. The guide, waited for a missing couple. Great if you’re them I guess. But not great for the other 20 people who were sitting waiting. Annoying! 20 min later we left. Unacceptable.

We drove the hour to Sienna. The bus dropped us and we walked 15 min or so to get into town. If you have challenges walking, not good. We had time to do our own thing (shop, eat, drink) & met our guide back at the meeting point. An hour or so. We did the walk back to meet the bus.

We did the hour drive to the winery. We arrived as the sun was escaping. Disappointing. We were barely able to rush out of the bus to snap photos. Probably would have been able to if the guide didn’t wait for that annoying late couple. Frustrating not capturing memories due to others lack of planning.
We were given a mini tour of the winery. Then brought to an outdoor area where we had dinner. We had low expectations, but the food was pretty good. Wine was served of course. One glass per. Shockingly our entire table loved the Pinot Grigio. We bought bottled and enjoyed with our meal.

We headed back to the bus terminal and were dropped in the front.

Okay, I’m going to split this up.
Bus to Siena - pleasant and air cooled.
Siena - magnificent. Honestly it was a superb stop off.
Wine tasting - 5 wines, and a good technique - it taught me a lot. I do think I could still have legally driven home afterwards.
Dinner - simple and small - not a big meal.
Sunset - never mentioned at all...
Bus back - very pleasant.

Summary - this is a tasting tour and not a drinking session. The guide was claiming lots of wine but, honestly, less than a glass in total.
Dinner - tasty but you’ll need something else when you get home or eat before you leave!!
Sunset - what sunset?

A great afternoon was had by all.

Awful tour guide (Amanda) lost 3 members of the group. She had TERRIBLE organisation and all timings were late.

Due to her lack of organisation when asked if we would miss the sunset (the tour is called sunset in sienna and is meant to include a panoramic vantage point to watch the sunset) she replied “I don’t know what time it sets”. Obviously we missed it.

Would never recommend this company or this tour - go elsewhere. We had a great Segway tour in Florence by another company

My friend and I took this tour later in June 2019. While we liked Siena, the tour guide offered little information on sights during our travel and walk around town, leaving us basically on our own til we met up agai.. the winery site was beautiful in rural Tuscany, but the meal provided us was not what the guide said she’d arrange for us. A chicken patty, beans and spiral noodle salad... and the regular menu was some sausage pieces instead of the patties so I doubt anyone would have been pleased with the menu. And since they had another large party outside in the grass setting, our inner courtyard hadn’t the views hoped for. So we wouldn’t recommend this tour and dinner to any friends....

Dear Cynthia We are very sorry to know that you have not enjoyed the day with us :( Let us kindly specify that on this tour customers have free time in Siena, there is no scheduled guided visit. The tour leader still gives a lot of information, points out the highlights of the city and gives bunch of suggestions about the place. For those interested in a guided historical tour of the city of Siena: we have it included in some of our full day tours around Tuscany, please check the website. The dinner menu is subject to change because we like it to depend on which fresh products they have on the tour day and we want it to be always a typical Italian dinner based on the order of a pasta dish (first course) followed by a second course, consisting of some typical meat dishes with vegetables. Water, wine and a little dessert are included in the dinner. Of course we do have vegetarian alternatives and we can arrange them without problems! Getting back to what you said for last: you were not ok with the regular menu and you specifically requested chicken as an alternative. Chicken is what you were served indeed, thanks to the mediation of our tour leader who did her best, as usual, to assist and accommodate you in every way, it seems without success unfortunately. We hope you will have the opportunity to come back and live a better experience next time. Meanwhile we wish you all the best! Kind Regards Ciaoflorence Staff

We were so looking forward to this tour, particularly visiting Siena where we had never been. While we got some historical information while enroute, once we arrived we were dropped off with less than 2 hours to explore. We were not told where anything was and with no map and little time, we saw nothing.

We arrived at the vineyard after dark so we could not see anything there. The meal was only OK. The wines were good and we did make a purchase.

This was a very disappointing experience. We only took it because we had not been to Siena and the reviews raved about the experience. Were we on the same tour as the other reviewers here? I have to wonder.

The tour guide was only OK. While she seemed to be knowledgeable, it was very hard to understand her.

Dear customer, Thanks for your feedback, we are very sorry to know that you have been disappointed. In response to what you wrote: we spend always at least a couple of hours in the town of Siena, that is enough for a very nice walk in the city center, especially for a first timer :) On board, before arrival, clients receive a very good general introduction about the place and all the tips about what it is possible to do and see on spot. Then they enjoy free time in Siena. About the dark: you need to consider that in this period of the year it is getting dark earlier than in summer, we wish we could control this! We are sorry to know that you didn't fully enjoy neither the tour leader nor the dinner, generally we receive good comments on both. We do hope you will have the opportunity to come back in the future and live a better experience with us. We would love to change your mind! Kind Regards Ciaoflorence Staff

On our way into Florence we contemplated on what we would do. Traveling for a month we had seen many big cities and wanted something different. On the train we booked this tour on a whim and we didn't regret it. We were able to explore Siena as well as indulge in a 4 course meal including 7 wine tastings. The staff was amazing and kept the 7 hour tour interesting! Our favorite part was our tour guide, Guido. He was so passionate about showing off the country that he loves and kept us laughing the whole ride home. I would highly recommend this tour to anyone visiting Florence who wants something else to do outside of the city. Thanks Guido! You were FANTASTIC!
