I would like to first say that Stella was a wonderful guide, fun, easy to interact with and filled with information about Siena. It was enjoyable. However, the tour didn't match up to what I read when signing up for the tour. In reality we had a taste of ONE Brunello and then a couple of tastes of cookies. We stopped at a Salumeria, had a small variety of cold meats and cheese and chianti, while standing in the street, only to find out later it cost me an additional 60 euro.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I am a little bit surprised about your review as I think that we had the opportunity to enjoy not only the art beauty of siena, the best highlights of my town but also tastings of wines cheese salumi and cookies that my gourmet tour is focusing on.you were 4 people and paying nothing for 4brunello glass tasting and cookies,later 15 euro per person a glass of chianti wine and three different types of pecorino cheese, capocollo and fennel salami and wildboar ham was a very good price
