A Recent Review of this tour

This is the best tour we have had in our Italy vacation. Roberta made the experience so personal. Her expertise and personality made the tour as if we were visiting San Gimignano with a friend. Her stories and historic coverage was exceptional. Our group consisted of my family of four, all of which rated Roberta a 5 star host. Her suggestion for lunch was spot on. If you are thinking of visiting San Gimignano Roberta's tour is a must.
