We were only in Siena for 2 nights and wanted to get a good understanding of the city and it's history and I found this site on TripAdvisor a couple of weeks before we visited and had never had a private guide before so we were unsure of what to expect. We were very pleasantly surprised. Our guide Barbara met... More

I decided to visit the cities of Siena and San Gimignano but I didn't have enough information and time to organize the sightseeing on my own. I was looking for a guide to walk me through the Gothic town of Siena, Toscana, Italy and San Gimignano and I hired Ms Silvia Manolova. Definitely I can say that was a perfect... More

My family and I visited the cities of Siena, amaizing gothic town in Toscana, Italy and San Gimignano, famous with its ancient towers and the medieval Manhattan. As we were not familiar with the area, we decided that the best to get the right impression of this gorgeous place is to look for a guide who can show us all... More

We drove to Siena from our B&B in Libbiano. Easy drive good roads. We were very lucky to find a good parking space. Very scenic old town, with cathedral that has unusual color motif, large square, good shopping and restaurants.

Barbara was fabulous! We did a full day tour with her and she provided so much insight and education we never could have gained on our own. Walking this beautiful city was the best way to truly experience it and having a friendly, enthusiastic resident of the city to narrate all we saw and share her personal experiences with us... More

Barbara did an evening tour for me, and after spending time with her I felt as though I really understood the people of Siena. I was even explaining the finer aspects of the Palio to other Italians later in my trip! Siena really has a very interesting history with respect to the 17 contrade, and everyone born in Siena belongs... More

My mother and I had only 1 day to spend in Siena. That's why I chose to hire Barbara as our guide. It was by far the best decision I made during our 10 day trip to Italy. Barbara has such an intimate and personal relationship with the city. She brings the history and culture to life. Siena is an... More
