Tour guide in Siena area

We are planning a tour in the Siena and Hill Towns area. Does anyone have advice about who to use for a one day tour? Has anyone toured with Luca at Hills and Roads?

You won't even begin to scrape the surface if you want to see Siena and a coule of other towns in one day. Just spend a good day in Siena.

Dario Castagno is a wonderful, fascinating person to arrange a lunch with, at a beautiful villa/hotel. My experience with him (and the books that he also writes!) has been nothing but fantastic. You could enjoy spending time with him as part of a larger tour (he doesn't actually give tours himself anymore), or just hang out with him and hear stories of what you're seeing that you won;t hear anywhere else. I think in some ways a lunch with him is even better than many tours! Search his name on Trip Advisor for some reviews. And yes, he also can easily arrange a fine and lovely tour for you, of Siena, or the surroundings.

Here's Dario's website, and it looks like he DOES give tours himself again, like he used to. That would be a treat!
