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!
Claudia ,our energetic guide who is a local, wasn't only welcoming and charming but she was also equipped with the deep knowledge and was passionately talking about the history of Siena and rivalry with Florence. It truly was a delight to have her as a guide.. I highly recommend the walking tour.
This was an excellent and informative tour. The group was relatively small, 8, so there was plenty of opportunities to ask questions. Our guide, Claudia Martinelli, was pleasant, engaging, and very informative. We would highly recommend Claudia.
Briliant tour. We had a limited time here and the tour made me feel that I had experienced Siena. Claudia, our guide, was extremely knowledgeable and answered many many questions off script. She did not just regurgitate historical fact but really brought the place to life with stories and anecdotes about life in Siena. I was buzzing after it was done and will undoubtedly remember a lot of what Claudia told us and I think this is in no small part due to her interesting and knowledgeable delivery.
This tour was amazing, we all learnt so much. Claudia was a fabulous guide, and because we were a small group, we had a lot more interaction. Siena is a beautiful city, and as far as I'm concerned is the best. I thoroughly recommend this tour
I'm not normally one to book a tour, but my limited time in Siena, i wanted to get to know as much as possible. The tour was fantastic, casually walking through the streets absorbing the incredible city that Siena has to offer. I would recommend this to everyone visiting, one of the best tours.
Excellent Tour. Provided as advertised. Nice casual stroll through the main streets and backstreets of Siena. Meeting place easy to find. Great explanation into the history of Siena. We had a rainy day, but that did not stop our group! Excellent tour guide. One of our favorite tours during our trip.
On of the best tours we had in Italy. Guide was prompt, knowledgeable,and interesting. She was also extremely efficient with our time - telling us what to see after the tour. There were suppose to be two other participates, but they never showed up. My daughter and I therefore got a private tour. We loved Siena because of this tour.
Well spoken guide. Just the right level to get an overview of Siena. Great to finish tour actually in the Dumo so we could spend more time in it.
Elena was terrific. She was enthusiastic, intelligent and knowledgeable. She was a wonderful storyteller, and gave life to the art and the architecture. It was easily one of the best tours we have had.
This was a great tour with a very nice tour guide. We have seen buildings or courts that we would not have found alone. Our tour guide gave us a good introduction to Siena and explained everything very well and interesting.
Great tour. Lots of interesting information and a good pace. There were only the four of us, so it was
exactly what we wanted. It was also a national holiday and our guide explained all of the happenings, too.
This was a lovely couple of hours. We were fortunate that we were the only two customers but it was made by our warm, friendly and knowledgeable guide (Elena). We learned a lot and Elena really brought the history of Siena to life.
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.
