I just finished reading King Rat by James Cavell, who had based the book on his experiences at the prison. The tour was very interesting and informative. The tour leader is very passionate about keeping the history relevant.
This tour is a good deal. By booking the tour, you get hotel pick up and delivery for a few dollars more than the tour cost by itself. People from my hotel had a costly time reaching the brewery by themselves. The tour itself was fun.
So much fun! Not only did we have lots of fun "bar hopping" as the Venetians do, our group mingled and had a great time socializing with each other. Our guide was a native Venetian and very humorous. She explained many aspects of local culture and beliefs.
The tour was VERY generous. We had 6 glasses of wine, six Cicchetti and received one small water bottle of wine. When I return to Venice, I will visit those places by myself.
Over priced for just having a driver take you to San Gimignano and Siena. Would have been better to take train myself. Had to pay own entrance to everything on top of steep "tour" price. Not a tour at all, just a ride in a car. We were supposed to get personalized tour of Siena. Did not happen.
Would never recommend this. Driver was nice but trip was a rip off.
This tour was awesome. Francesca was so interesting and fun. We had a wonderful day and learned a great deal. Please don't eat too big of a breakfast before this tour! You get to sample lots of wonderful food.
