What a great day! We saw so much in such a short period of time. A map of Sienna would have eased the stress of ensuring we got back to the meeting point on time! A toilet on the bus would help meet the toilet needs of 75 people. A challenge finding a toilet all day.

Great way to see multiple Tuscan highlights in one day

It was rainy while we stopped for Monteriggioni - glad it was a short stop. We skipped the meal so we could explore Siena's Cathedral, Museum, Baptistry, & Crypt - it worked out great for us so we didn't have to rush; the local tour guide didn't really provide any additional information from what our guides had already told us. San Gimignano was nice and we had just about enough time to really explore the sights. The wine tasting seemed disorganized -- it took the vineyard staff took forever to bring around the samples - what should have been a short stop took quite awhile (and after a long day, we were tired and just wanted to get home).

All in all a good tour. Unfortunately, there was very little time at the individual locations, but you could still get a good impression. We had the German tour of Siena and since there were only 4 of us there was even a "private tour" which was very nice. The English group is walking through the city with headphones and tourist guides. Unfortunately, the tour was very short, if very nice. The food ... you could eat, but it was a little bit. That's why we treated ourselves to ice cream afterwards. All in all: to get a small impression of the surrounding area of Tuscany a recommended tour. As I said, you have little time at the individual locations, but you are really a total of at least 11 hours away. The winery was very nice, like the other places. If you want to see a lot in little time, this is the right tour.
