Driver and guide were outstanding

Even though we had booked a semi private tour of Siena and San Gimignano our tour was cancelled the day before. Fortunately I was willing to pay for a private tour that allowed us a special experience even though a major portion of the Day was spent driving. We are seasoned travelers who would have spent more time in each destination rather than a brief walkabout. Lorie our guide and Johnny our driver were very adaptable and fun to have on our quick journey.
