Our guide was Ludovica and she was amazing. Her depth of knowledge and enthusiasm for her home city were infectious. She was charming and personable as well. We learned so much about the contrade and the palio - and the history of the various beautiful cathedrals. I cannot recommend her enough!

It was nice having a guide from the actual city - she had great information and stories (sorry J can’t remember her name but she was from the contra “wave”) it made the tour so much more enjoyable! Sienna is amazing and next time we shall stay there for sure!

What a great tour! I learned so much about Siena that I never would’ve known by just walking the city myself. I also loved that it was far more personal given the small size. Seeing the massive tour groups go by made me appreciate this one all that much more.
