Apparently on the day of this trip the Pope was visiting Assisi, so the city was closed and we couldn't get in, of which I was informed a day in advance (they said we would visit a different twon instead). Then on the day itself after we visited Cortona and had some free time there, we drove to Assisi. It seemed that our guide and driver had no idea how to get into town, but they tried hard, and eventually we parked outside Assisi and took a shuttle and visited Basilica of San Francesco. We even ended up seeing the Pope as he was transferred from one church to another :-) Under the cirsumstances - I think that this tour went very well, so I give it 4 stars out of 5. I don't know how the tour goes under normal circumstances.
Apparently the driver/tour guide got ill, so they needed to find someone else, which they did pretty quick, because there was only a 30 minutes delay in picking me up at the hotel. They called the hotel and informed me of delay, which I appreciated. The tour itself was very nice. First we drove to San Gimignano (we stopped on the way to take some photo's of the city in the distance - the pics turned out lovely) and had some free time there, then to wine tasting. Wine tasting was nicely organised, we had a table for our group and there were two other groups there. We tasted several of the most famous Toscan wines and had some antipasti. Back to Siena around 14h00.This trip was a good value for money
