When we finally left, the trip was enjoyable.

My only complaint is no accesibililty to a restroom before departure. Additionally, no one told me how to get a refund for a ticket I paid for a friend who became ill the morning if the trip.

Jennifer was the best! She was knowledgeable, professional, and had a great personality for dealing with so many people. She turned a very long day into an awesome Tuscany experience.

Very worthwhile Day Trip which was enjoyable and interesting

We enjoyed stopping off at the various locations en route to Siena. The weather, the comfort of the bus and the help of Lisa our Tour guide and the location guide in Siena, all combined for a very good "small" experience of some of Tuscany.

So interesting, nice people on the bus, and an excellent tour guide.

Really enjoyed the experience and plan to go on another tour before I leave Italy.
