We had just arrived in Florence for the first time, and this tour was a great introduction to the main sites in the city. Our guide was well educated, engaging, and spoke English very well. We enjoyed this tour very much.
We enjoyed this Walking Tour tremendously and our tour guide, Elena made you feel like Siena was the best and most exciting city in Italy. We started at the Piazza del Campo and got the history of the famous square including the famous Palio Horse Races that are held in July and August each year. Watching the pigeons drink from the fountain was worth a picture.
After learning about the Contrades or areas of Siena, it was fabulous to see all the flags and very cool lights that represented the contrades.After touring around and learning more about the history of Siena, we finished at the Duomo. All and all it was a great tour with a enthusiastic guide.
Elena was great. The route was easy. Elena was knowledgeable. She was able to answer all questions, and the group had many!
This a great tour! We were very lucky to have our guide all to just ourselves.Thoroughly recommend this tour.Beautiful city.So interesting.
very informative and lovely guide! skipping the line is absolutely necessary! our family of 5 truly enjoyed this tour!
Erica was a fantastic tour guide! She was extremely knowledgeable and personable. It was great to learn so much about the history of Siena! GREAT TOUR!!!
Excellent tour, great guide. We learnt lots of interesting facts about Sienna and the Palio. Highly recommended.
Our tour guide was a doll. She was so passionate about siena. Tour was incredible. Cathedral made our hearts stop.
This was a really enjoyable tour as our guide was very knowledgable and was able to give us a lot of information about Siena and it's history. I would suggest you do the tour when you first arrive.
Guide was great! There were only 2 of us so it felt more like a private tour. Highly recommended for first time visitors to get your bearings and then to better understand the history and sites to explore. Highly recommended.
Our guide was extremely knowledgable and with a small group of 5 was able to interact with all of us answering questions and explaining what we were seeing in a more detailed way. This was our third trip to Siena and after taking this tour I had a much greater appreciation on the major sites and history of this city. Highly recommend taking this tour to more fully understand the history of Siena from its ceraly beginnings to the modern day.
Our guide Elena was excellent. She was very knowledgeable, courteous and the route was excellent. She took us to some places that were a bit off the main tourist track and we really appreciated that. I would recommend this tour.
We had a very thorough tour of the city and left with a much greater appreciation for the town of Siena. our enthusiastic guide clearly knew the town and history and gave us a much better perspective of the city!
Many thanks to Sylvia who gave such a rich history of Siena. We walked for miles with our guide book but Sylvia really brought the traditions to life and we were really glad that we booked the trip
Sylivia was a great guide, taking us around a 'fairly hard to navigate yourself' Siena. She was knowledgeable and informative and explained all there was to see, answering questions with ease. She took the walk at a perfect pace, despite the searing heat. A lovely tour.
Found the tour interesting, informative, and surprisingly entertaining. The guide was excellent she managed to hold our attention throughout for all the group which included 2 small children so this was no mean feat. We benefitted from it being a small group so all our questions were answered and the intimate nature was a real bonus.
We loved the tour. The leader was friendly, informative and really knew her stuff. Well worth while.
I had walked around the city the day before and never thought about all the wonderful things Sylvie pointed out and explained. Great tour and she was excellent!
My apologies to the other tour members who waited 15 minutes for me when I was not in the position to call that at the last moment I couldn't reach Siena in time for the tour. My decision to travel for 3 weeks without cell phone was necessary and personally liberating but this was the one time I could have used it. Upon my return to the US, I did have a concerned message from the tour guide which I would like to acknowledge as professional and concerned.
The walking tour was great , the tour guide very good but I expected to visit the Siena Duomo but did not happen. But it was totally worth it.
This ended up being a private tour, just the four of us and it was terrific!! Guide was very knowledgeable and helpful and the tour covered all the relevant areas.
A very friendly and welcoming guide (I'm sorry I can't remember her name!). We liked the fact that we were unexpectedly part of only a group of 4. Our guide was informative without being too heavy on the facts and information and she was happy to answer our questions, mostly linked to the Palio. The information in the Duomo helped to bring the visit alive and I think we appreciated it more for the guide.
Our guide was extremely knowledgeable about Siena, and had been living there for a number of years. She made the tour engaging and was very approachable and happy to answer our many questions as we went along. I liked the fact it was a small group, only myself and my partner and another couple. The only negative aspect was the price, I found it quite high even though it was the cheapest Siena tour I could find, but I have been on many free walking tours around Europe of a similar standard, so perhaps I am biased!
Unfortunately we had to wait half an hour for 2 other people to register for this tour. Last minute bookings i suppose make money too,but when we are expected to be at meeting places at least 15 minutes before a tour, then we cannot be expected to wait for a total of 45 mins before a tour starts.
