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).

Really enjoyed the tour. Meeting place was harder to find than expected. Friendly tour leaders. Very informative. Sufficient time in each spot. 3 course lunch with wine was good. The next stop was the wine tasting including bread and cheese so more food.
