The tour of Siena with the guide was excellent. Lunch at the Fattoria Poggio Alloro in San Gimignano was somewhat unpleasant due to the treatment of one of the waiters when serving us because he ignored us despite calling him several times (in contrast to the rest of the tourists) and was even somewhat abrupt (he practically threw the dishes at us, I perceived xenophobia). Other than that, the rest of the tour was fine.

A very comfortable ride. We had the most amazing guide, Elizabetha. She even took the time on our way back to offer suggestions or questions. It was super easy to order wine and send to Alaska from the winery. Would have liked more time to venture in San Gimignano, we got caught up in the shops!
