Claudia was and incredible to work at eight. She gave us so much fun and in-depth information about the town of Siena . She was so friendly and helpful! I would definitely recommend this tour to learn about all the interesting local information!
Claudia was a great guide. She was extremely knowlegeable and passionate about the history and art of Siena. She took time to answer questions.The size of the group was perfect. We learned so much about Siena, the Palio, history of the districts. Great tour and extremely enjoyable experience..
Wonderful informative tour of Siena. The tour guide was excellent!
An excellent tour. Interesting throughout. We would have missed so much of the intrigue and history of Siena without it. Claudia was an oustanding guide.
Great tour! Guide was on-time, very knowledgeable and FUN! She lives in Siena so she had lots of insides into the districts, the horse race, as well as being very knowledgeable about the history, art, and architecture. A don't miss tour if you really want to know about Siena.
Claudia was a great guide. The size of the group was perfect too, it made for a very good experience. Learned so much about Siena, the Palio, history of the districts. Would love to go back there one day. And Claudia even suggested a great pizza place Pizzeria San Martino for lunch.
Great guide. Leaned a lot! Highly recommended. Lots of steps, so may not be best for those on canes, walkers, etc.
Our guide was easy to find, she was an outstanding and pleasant young lady. Being a small group I think we got much better care and information than some of the larger groups that we have been in. She took time to answer question and explain things. Viator and its subcontractors have been very good to deal with as we have been using them the last two trips to Europe.
Thank you again.
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.
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.
This walking tour was very good. The tour guide was informative and attentive to our questions and needs. I will recommend it as there are a lot of details that only a person who lives in Siena can share with the guests.
Our guide was knowledgeable and really took the time to answer every question. We ran over by an hour, and she never tried to hurry us along. We learned a great deal. It's a well-priced tour, also. Definitely recommend.
Our tour guide was knowledgeable, fun and quick witted - while we had a fairly large group, she took time to answer everyone's questions and fill in with fun facts along the way. There were so many things we learned that we never would have if we didn't go on the tour.
Siena is a lovely destination - this tour gave us more reason to appreciate the wonderful little village.
We saw the sites of Siena and got the details and history as we would not have been able to comprehend on our own. Very concise and thorough tour. Thanks Viator!
