It was a great tour. Our guide was great! Very interesting, passionate and knowledgeable about Siena. We were a small group so that made it easier. The only negative thing was that he gave the tour in English and Italian ( there were 2 Italian tourists). This made the tour 45 minutes longer and we had to wait around for the English version. It was a too long. They need to separate the languages in the tours.

OK but spoilt by two Italians

If the tour is supposed to be in English why did two Italians hijack it and ruin the continuity? It made very difficult for the guide. Also, I put on trousers as it was stated in your instructions that people wearing shorts could not enter the cathedral. In truth there were dozens in there wearing shorts while I was sweltering in trousers. Please get your facts right guys.
