    This was a trip wanted by the mother in law. Siena history about the districts and the horse race is very interesting as well as the old mid evil architect. You are then whisked away to wine tasting and different types of Brochette. Loved the wind and food and our winery guide was excellent and nice. Ordered bottles to be delivered to home in the US. Then went to San Gimignano, again nice history and mid evil architect. recommend this trip

    My only guess is that people normally don't book tours of these 2 Tuscan cities from Rome. We just ran out of time during our stay in Florence and I really had a burning desire to see these 2 unique places. The cities did not disappoint, but our tour guide was apparently a bit out of her element. She made a point of pointing out the statue of Luciano Banchi - it was only when I got home and zoomed in on the picture that I figured out this was actually a religious figure named Bandini from the 1700's - several hundred years after Luciano Banchi passed away. She also got carried away with the Palio di Siena so when we got to San Gimignano the tours being cut off ended up being described as some sort of neighborhood competition too. I'm not paying you to make stuff up - especially when so much of it was easily verifiable or proven false after the fact. We also had a very late lunch after passing all sorts of delicious looking cafes in Siena in a very touristy winery that consisted of bread 8 different ways and Tuscan white wine not really what Tuscany is known for. I felt like we were doing somebody a favor without knowing it. It didn't help that we had taken a fantastic Rome in a Day tour with a private guide the day before. I recommend seeing Siena and San Gimignano, but I wouldn't book this particular tour again.

    Siena, San Gimignano and a great truly Italian meal how can you go wrong. We had a guide and a driver which makes it handy not worrying about parking. The views at San Gimignano are incredible. This has now become our favorite village in Italy.
