Incredible day trip! We couldn’t have had a better guide, the views were phenomenal and the lunch was even better than expected.

From Florence: Val d'Orcia Wine tour, Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano
Alberto picked us in piazza Antinori, it was a nice drive through beautiful countryside of Tuscany first to Montalcino where we had a winery visit, Brunello wine was fantastic. Than a delicious lunch followed by a short walk in Pienza, which is a jem. Than in Montepulciano we visited an underground cellar again with traditional food and some more wine.

Day trip to Pienza and Montepluciano

Small-Group Montepulciano and Pienza Day Trip from Siena
We had a lovely day trip from Siena to Pienza and Montepluciano with TuscanEscapes Tours. The eight hour tour included an unbelievable lunch stop at Podore I’ll Casale along with a nice visit to Pienza and Montepluciano. Our guide was very cool and fun to be with as well as very knowledgeable. Lastly, we had a fun wine tasting De’Ricci in Montepluciano and was able to learn a lot about the historic building and wine making family. A wonderful day!

Great for Red Wine Lovers; Good for others

From Florence: Val d'Orcia Wine tour, Montalcino, Pienza and Montepulciano
I picked this your for the three towns where we’d never visited. The countryside was gorgeous. I’m not a red wine person m, but the first vineyard was ok. In Pienza we had a delicious lunch on a terrace overlooking an incredible view of the valley. On the third stop we skipped the wine tasting and wandered around town. The van was nicer than a huge bus!

Tour guide should have known that the bathroom was near the bus instead of sending me all the way back up the main street.

Our guide Angel was very engaging and has worked as a sommelier in the past. I have some experience so he was able to provide me with detailed information that made the trip even better. The winery and guide at Solaria in Montalcino made it interesting and exciting with tours of the cellar, fermentation areas, and bottling. The wines were excellent. Lunch in Pienza was very good as well. Montalpuciano is a small quiet village (probably since we were off season). We did a tasting there and toured the cellars and had time to shop etc. Since it was offseason the weather was rainy and some shops were closed but I still enjoyed the opportunity to visit. Angel was a great guide.

Rolling Tuscan Hill views and beautiful old towns to wander

Small-Group Montepulciano and Pienza Day Trip from Siena
What an extraordinary day from start to finish. Our group had a lovely drive through the hills stopping in a little town for coffee. Both Pienza and Montepulciano are beautiful each in their own way. We had enough time to walk around and see the main streets and a few little side alleys. Every few feet was a postcard view. Incredible. The included lunch was very good and after we had a quick visit with some of the animals on the property. Our guide was terrific and gave us a lot of information along the drive and as we arrived in each town. The whole tour process works well. The meet up at the church went quickly and we were dropped off there at the end of the day. I purposely chose a hotel a 2 minutes walk from the meeting point since my three full days in Sienna included two days on these small group tours with this company. Overall I thinks it's very good value for the money. Small tours allow more conversation among the group, more opportunity to ask the guide questions, and the small vans can drop you off close to the walled towns and quickly maneuver through traffic better than giant tour busses.

We thoroughly enjoyed this tour. The driver (Alberto) was an excellent driver (it was raining). He did his best to be heard over some of the more talkative members of our group of eight. My only suggestion would be to have some amplification for the driver because if you're not in the front seat, you can't hear him very well. That being said the tour was excellent. The wineries visited were very generous at sharing their products and information. The lunch in Pienza was delicious but unfortunately, because of the weather, it was harder to enjoy the amazing views. We left Florence at 8.30 AM and returned about 6 PM, so it is a long day. It might also be difficult if you have mobility issues, to visit the second cellar because of the stairs. Otherwise, we would recommend this tour for it's variety, lovely wines, terrific lunch and of course, the fabulous Tuscan countryside.

An easy way to see the countryside

Small-Group Montepulciano and Pienza Day Trip from Siena
We had a lovely day with our tour guide, Ambra! I could have skipped the stop for tea/coffee in Asciano so that we could have more time in Pienza and Montepulciano, but we knew when we booked the trip that our time there would be limited. We enjoyed lunch on the patio at the pecorino farm. The view was absolutely beautiful! Lunch was light but good (but no meat). I was surprised that the pasta was a cold rotini salad from pre-made pasta---not the fresh pasta you'd expect in Italy. Ambra made the trip special. We stopped in several places so she could take photos of us. She is passionate about Italian history and culture and we really enjoyed talking to her. We took another Tuscan Escapes trip the next day and also had a good experience. I think their trips are a good way to see the countryside and explore hill towns if you don't have a car and don't want to deal with public transportation.
