We enjoyed our walking tour of Siena with Claudia. Claudia's english, knowledge and personality were all excellent! We learned about the seventeen contrade and the Palio. We especially enjoyed our visit to the beautiful Duomo. We had a bit of a parking problem because our Wednesday morning tour coincided with market day in Siena. If your tour is on a Wednesday do leave extra time to park and get to the meeting spot.
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and extremely helpful, answering all our questions with considerable patience. She was able to give us a locals point of view, especially about the rivalries between neighbourhoods. The cathedral is stunning and the library took my breath away. Siena is a lovely small city I think I prefer it to Florence and I'd highly recommend this tour.
This tour was outstanding. Only 4 in group. Claudia is a great guide with a depth of knowledge and a deep understanding and love for her city

We really enjoyed this tour. Highly recommend it along with Tour guide Claudia. She was friendly and passionate about her city.
Perfect way to get to know Sienna and learn about the beautiful Cathedrals.
Fascinating tour with history, beautiful sights, and interesting stories,especially about the neighborhood mascots.
Claudia was our tour guide 3 weeks ago in Siena. She was extremely enthusiastic and charming - what a great tour. Her Siena pride shines through! After spending 2 weeks in central Italy Rome to Venice and everything in-between, Siena became our favorite city - largely due to the exceptional introduction to this small city and important churches and landmarks by our tour guide. Thanks again Claudia!
Our guide, Claudia, was great. She is a native of Siena and provided great insight into the annual horse race and made the tour very enjoyable. This was a nice tour and since Siena is quite small, we were treated to a great highlight of the area. Worth the effort to get to Siena we took the bus from Florence for this tour.
Tour lasted almost two and a half hours. Group of six. Tour included St Domenico, Il Campo and a visit to the Duomo. Tour guide Claudia was knowledgeable and personable, sharing lots of information about her hometown. Enjoyed learning about the Palio race and the 17 neighborhood rivalries.
Thoroughly enjoyed our tour and our guide Claudia was excellent!!
We loved our tour walking with Claudia! She was a wealth of information, and so passionate about this beautiful city. We learned so much about their history, the gorgeous churches, famous palio race, 17 districts, and I finally understood where the 'passion and rivalry' Italians are known for comes from! We were so grateful to end up with a private morning tour, and the 3 hours zipped by. I had so many questions she was happy to answer, and highly recommend Claudia. We left feeling a heartfelt connection with this special city..
The tour was very informative. Our guide, Claudia, was friendly, knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She moved at a good pace for the group and answered any questions that were asked. We would highly recommend this tour.
Perfect! Our tour guide Claudia did a really great job to show us the beautiful city an told us in a short time interesting stories about the history of Siena. 100% recommendation!

Cladia was just amazing. She made our discovery of Sienna a wonderful experience. We took a mid morning tour on our first visit to this beautiful city and found Claudia.s tour a perfect way to discover the city which we did on our own after the tour. Just Great
Excellent tour guide....only two of us on it so made it more personal
Guide had great knowledge of the area and what was said.
Our tour guide was excellent. Very informative and provided an great background to living now and in the past. Highly recommend
I found this trip info rather last minute , thanks to my non planning but it turned out to be a pleasant surprise. The guide Rachel, I think was extremely well versed with the sights and the walking tour aroundf Sienna helped get a good view of the city. Loved the fact that we got into the Duomo without any lines.
Wonderful tour made so nice by Claudia our guide. My favorite tour thus far and we usually tour thru Viator on a daily basis.
Quite simply terrific. Why? Mostly because of Claudia. One of the best city guides I have ever encountered. Nothing was too much trouble. She invested personal energy enthusiasm and great local knowledge. I would happily have spent two days being shown around by such a gifted guide. The sites and the stories were excellent and the duomo magnificent. Thank you.
The tour ended up being only my husband and sister-in-law, so it was like a private tour. Sylvia our guide was very warm, genuine, and knowledgable of everything. We would definitely take another tour from her or from Tuscany escapes:) definitely recommend!!!!!
Our tour guide was great! So informative. She took us around the city and explained the history of the town and she even extended the time of the tour a little bit as there was so much to see. Very happy with this tour and the guide.
We had a lovely knowledgeable guide on this walking tour of Siena which also combines a visit to Siena's Duomo skip the line entrance ticket, which is very handy as there are always queues and you want to avoid doing this in the heat we had over 30 degrees for our entire trip. The cathedral is absolutely beautiful with its black and white striped columns and mosaic flooring. Don't miss the Biblioteca Piccolomini which has frescoes going all the way and will leave you awe struck.
Our guide was incredibly friendly and knowledgeable. She found us at the meet-up spot and led us on a wonderful walk around Siena, explaining the history of the churches, the rivalries between the contrade, and all the preparations that go into the Palio horse races. Interesting and informative!
Claudia was absolutely amazing on this tour! She is a local that was excellent and showed us the rich history and cultures of Siena. My two kids ages 12 and 8 also enjoyed the tour as well! Thank you Claudia!
