This was the best tour I've done so far! Angela is an amazing guide, full of energy, nice to everyone, professional and she is the best at what she does. We saw amazing places, but I must admit the lunch was out of this world. If you're able, book the tour with lunch included, you won't regret it. My favorite spot was Siena, i wish we had enough time to explore on our own. San Gimignano looks frozen and time and it's pretty. Pisa is beautiful but nothing special. Even with all this, the highlight was Angela! I'm a tour guide from Portugal, so believe me when I say she's the best. Ask for her if possible! Thank you so much again!

Lucieno was a fantastic tour guide who was very informative about all the locations. He was very diligent, always making sure everyone was in the group before leaving. Unfortunately, through no fault of Lucieno’s, there were several people in the group who consistently arrived late to the meeting points which cut into our time in the other locations. But I still had a great time and was very glad I booked this tour

Really great experience. Entry to the cathedral is free anyway but this is included in the ticket price. You can buy on this app or at the grounds. There is an option for all monuments for €27 at the grounds depending what you want to do. I did this in January so it was busy but not overly crowded as I assume the hotter months would be! Still recommend this ticket if you want to plan your day in advance.

The tour in general is great, with quality lunch, but modest for being of little quantity and variety. The delays were caused by some of the participants, not by the My Tour in Italy staff, who did a great job, especially the guide Ana. Such delays meant that we arrived in San Gimignano almost at night. Finally, the bus used is very good and new. I recommend the tour!

I chose again a tour with this florentine tour operator sightseeing experience because I really enjoyed their trip to Chianti. I recommend it to all the girls who are traveling in Italy and want to have the security of an organized tour without surprises. We visited Pisa, Siena, a very old village with many towers and we also had lunch in the middle of Chianti.
