Great trip except for the transport. The bus was very uncomfortable for a 2 ½ hour trip.
Our tour was fantastic Stefan did a great job and was very interesting. Dimitri is a great driver. Thanks to all. Green line was very good to deal with.

We were two of a 7 person tour on a small van. No large impersonal tour. It was relaxed with a fine guide and plenty of free time. The ascent to the main plaza was grueling, but not prohibitive for active seniors. Views of beautiful fields of sunflowers on the drive were fabulous. Meal outstanding. I recommend.
My Husband and I went on this Tour on Oct. 8th, 2014....we thoroughly enjoyed this day from the start to the end! It was our first time in Siena and the Viator Tour guide was amazing and the Siena land tour guide was most welcoming and wonderfully explained to Town. The Restaurant we had lunch that day was so generous and food was traditional to the area totally satisfied with it all and well worth the money and day. We would recommend this tour to anyone that loves a Tuscan Medieval tour...Thank you Viator for having this tour available!!!
Confirming this tour with the local service was a nightmare. Viator says to confirm within 48 hours - I called early in the morning (almost exactly 48 hours) - told to call back after 9:30 AM. Called back that afternoon and told to call back the next morning. Called back the next morning and told to call back that afternoon. Called back that afternoon and confirmed everything.
The tour itself was great. Really enjoyed the free time in Siena. The guide was great, her English was easy to understand and she was a real pleasure to chat with. The local guide's speaking was a little harder to understand at times, but was still okay, her bubbly personality more than made up for it. The lunch was good, not great - plenty of food, quality was okay, but I would have ordered something different if given the option.
Because this was a newer tour, my wife and I were the only two who booked it - we essentially had a private tour, the two of us, the driver and the guide(s). Probably a rare result, but 4 stars because of the difficulty confirming with the tour company and because the bus that picked us up from the hotel was very dirty on the inside and smelled - it needed a cleaning. It was a short ride on that bus though, and then all passengers were placed into other buses or cars.
I considered 3 stars because of the confirmation issues and the first bus, but the town made up for it as well as the individualized attention. I would recommend this tour to friends and family and we plan to go back to Siena on our own.
I expected to have a nice drive through the countryside. It was on a 4 lane highway. The tour description might have mentioned that. I was disappointed in the Tuscany countryside ride. Other than that, our guide was great, Stefano, as was the driver. Siena was beautiful.
