What You Can Expect
We booked this tour because everyone told us we had to see Siena while we were so close in San Casciano. I figured we would skip down there, get an overview of the city, and move on. But it turned out to be one of our very favorite cities in Italy! I know that had a lot to do with our guide, Claudia, who we were lucky enough to have all to ourselves. She grew up in Siena, so she was able to give us an intimate perspective on the culture of the city, particularly the culture surrounding the contrade/districts. It was so fun and so funny to hear the stories of playful rivalry. In my opinion, the Siena cathedral is much lovelier and more interesting than the one in Florence, and Claudia gave us all the good details regarding history and art. We really felt an intimate connection with the city of Siena, thanks to this very personal and intimate tour. I'm so glad we didn't skip Siena! I hope to go back and stay for awhile.
Our tour guide was a bubbly young woman with a passion for Italian culture and history.
I wish I could recall her name- unfortunately many people met in between writing this review!
If there was another star rating, I would give this young woman 6! Only a small group which made the tour even better. The young woman brought her local history to life. An excellent experience.
Our guide was outstanding. This tour is definitely worth the money. VIATOR needs to provide information with regard to parking. Parking in the hill towns exists, but it is very difficult to determine which lot is best for your tour.
Outstanding! We lucked out and only had the two of us and one other member on our tour. We loved everything about Siena, even its steep hills and will plan our next trip to Italy to coincide with the famous Palio de Siena, the horserace between the various contradas. Siena was the banking capital of Italy and has close ties to Rome as a result. And the she-wolves are everywhere!
Sylvia was a great tour guide, very informative and with a sense of humour. Good knowledge and also happy to answer any questions. Gave us great insights into Siena's people and history.
It was a great overview of the city.
The best guide and the best information! Thanks so much
The tour guide was very informative and her English was great. While Siena is small and we did go around it by ourselves, it was worth paying for the walking tour so that we could see things we would have bypassed or ignored and get the history as well. I recommend it.
The guide and the service that provided the guide were excellent. Out guide loved her city and she made it come alive. It is clear she was not just going through the motions.
The lady did an excellent job, even though it was chilly and showered the whole day. It is a great ancient town to see and would recommend this to everyone visiting the Tuscany area.
Tell her thanks again.
