While waiting for the train to Siena, an Italian couple came up to purchase a ticket from the vending machine. I knew it was out of service and attempted to explain (in broken Italian) and they actually understood me!!! I am sure it was all in the hand signals. Very funny!
Which Untours have you already done?
Tuscany, 2007
What advice would you give others considering an Untour?
Do some reading up on where you would like to go. Take advantage of the info from other Untourists - it is valuable. Go do it!
