All in all a nice experience. The location of the wine tasting, the wines and the food were perfect. We just didn't think the name of the tour fit the experience. The name of the tour promises a Siena sunset while you sit inside with the tasting and dinner. We thought this was a shame as you have a breathtaking view from the terrace. You can also take some more time for dinner and tasting. You also have little time in Siena to explore the city. I will offer the trip a little earlier in the day so that you have more time to go into town and more time for the tasting and dinner. All in all a very nice experience but the title does not fit the experience we have gained.

The overall arrangement was good. We met at 2:45pm for the sunset tour in Florence coach station, then it's about 1.5 hr to Siena. The air conditoning in the coach could be improved, I would say. We had about 2 hours free time wandering Siena, it's a very beautiful place with great architecture to see, of course there are a lot of small shops to buy things. However, despite the tour title suggested, we didn't actually see the Sunset in Siena because we left at 6:15pm (in late July perhaps sunset was much later!) After Siena, we went to Chianti. There was a tour introducing their wine, then we sit down in the dinning area. The different course of dinner was presented with appropriate wine, so guests (esp. those love wine) would actually try the wine with antipasti, main course and dessert in sequence - clever host!

Great idea, excellent winery tour, so so overall tour

We expected a guided tour. Out guide, Elena, was talking only in the bus on the way to Siena, mostly in Spanish to 4 people vs 40 English speakers. She also talked constantly to the bus driver, why was gesticulating while talking at the same time while driving bus with one hand on the spiral narrow roads in Tuscany! Very scary experience! And totally unsafe! We did not have any excursion in Siena, like other groups, just given 1 hour on our own. Bus was parked so far, that it took 30 min each way to get there. Corinna Peruciotti, the leader at Azienda Agricola Panzanello, was amazing. Super knowledgeable, kind, warm, with perfect English, she made a wine tasting and the dinner truly amazing! It worth mentioning that Spanish translation to 4 people constantly interfered with presentation and experience.
