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

Barbara did a fantastic job of conveying the rich history of Siena and the values of people who live there. Siena appears to be trying to hold on to a sense of community and to keep a focus on family values. Something that many communities are at risk of losing. Barbara has a wealth of knowledge to share concerning all... More

Barbara is a Siena native -- and it really shows. Her walking tours includes much personal knowlege of Siena -- in excellent English. I think her touring approach is perfect for small groups -- say two to six people. Unlike large group touring, which goes from spot to spot in gaggles, small group touring is best done in ongoing walking... More

Our tour of Siena was the highlight of our visit to Italy. Barbara is an amazing tour guide. Siena is her home town and her love of the history, culture and people of Siena made our stay there so much more meaningful and rich. Through Barbara's narrative we could visualize life in this medieval town in both the past and... More
