Fantastic way to see these two places in one day. Federica our tourist guide in Siena was outstanding; it would have been great if the tour company had provided 'whispers' so she could have better shared her amazing knowledge of the cathedral. Other reviews have mentioned the quality of the host and while our host, William, was pleasant he appeared to simply read information and on the way home repeated information he had already given. This may have been due to the fact that while his English was good it wasn't great and perhaps he was new to the job. The wine shop stop on the way home was saved by a very amusing vendor. Given the purpose of the day, however, it seemed like an unnecessary grab for the tourist euro.
This was such an enjoyable tour. We did this on our first day in Florence and it was a great way to see some of the city. Our tour guide, Angela, was warm, friendly and knowledgeable. We were given so much food to taste that we were all struggling to eat it by the end ... fortunately human beings come with a separate stomach for gelato.
