We had a tour of the cathedral and city which we really enjoyed and then heard all about the Palio, which was on the next day, the atmosphere was great and there was so much activity within the town, wish we could have seen the race. Again I suggest a tour guide. You learn so much.

Costanza exceed our expectations and her love and knowledge of Siena are evident. I would highly recommend her. A trip to Siena without her would not be the same.

We booked a tour for four of us for just after our arrival in Siena, at palio time, to aquaint us with the lesser known parts of the city and the palio. Costanza was friendly, knowledgeable and had very good English. She also had a great knack of getting us to the right spots just in time to get great... More

Half day walking tour of the historical town of Siena. We heard about the Palio and the horse race connected to the Palio. The tour gave a good insight into the history of Siena and it's people families who pass down the tradition of the contradas.

It was the excellent reviews on Trip Advisor that led me to Costanza of Siena Walking Tours. After experiencing her wonderful service on behalf of my family and myself (trip organizer!) I can only say, "Double or triple all the good reports and it will be closer to the truth!" We had the benefit of her services for a day... More

I am travelling alone and wanted a short walking tour of Siena to understand a little more of this beautiful city. I contact Costanza before I left home and made the booking. From that day on I felt like I had a friend in Siena. I needed some local advice on the bus vs train from Rome and Costanza helped... More

We wanted to know more about Palio, but we did not want to take a long tour. Constanza arranged to meet us at 6:30 for a 1.5 hour walking tour that emphasized the Palio. We even were able to visit one of the best kept secrets in Siena, one of the neighborhood museums--not easy to accomplish on one's own. She... More

Costanza is well spoken and doesn't try and baffle you with obscure facts. Her knowledge of Siena and its history is quite remarkable and we were impressed at how she was able to communicate so well with 2 people that were so less informed. I would recommended Siena Walking Tours to anyone travelling to this great town. The passion of... More

Siena is a beautiful city. This was my second visit, but the first time I had had a guided tour and I appreciate the city even more now thanks to Costanza's guidance. We (a group of four, 50'something, curious and fit travellers and foodies) were stimulated, amazed, fed (oh, the Pan Forte and famous Siena cookies from the bakery where... More

We started our stay in Siena with a great walking tour and food tasting with Costanza. We started with the Duomo and then walked along the alleys of Siena, as she explained the neighborhoods and pointed out all the sites. We stopped at a great neighborhood bar to taste local specialties and a wine tasting, (the owner took us deep... More
