My husband and I enjoyed this tour. We had small group, only 4 in our van so we had very personal attention and could ask questions which the guide was very knowledgeable. Our guide was very passionate about the region, culture and people. He knew the history and had some interesting and sometimes funny antidotes about the area and people of this region. He made the tour a fun adventure
This is really a great tour where you combine Siena and San Gimignano in a most comfortable way. We had great guides, a fantastic dinner and the organization went on perfect. The only negative thing was the timing. We did not see neither city by night as I would assume to see. San Gimignano would have been lovely to see by night. But apart that, perfect tour.
I had such a wonderful time visiting these two cities. The guided tour of Siena was so informative and dinner was tasty!
