Perfect tour to get a sense of Siena's history and architecture
Nov 2021
Margarita's passion and knowledge about Siena clearly came through during the tour. This was my third visit to Siena and first time using a guide, which I highly recommend. We never would have been able to see and truly appreciate so much of the city and its history in one day without Margarita. Her descriptions really brought Siena to life especially the Basilica and Duomo, which are worth a visit to Siena by themselves. The length of the tour is perfect leaving time afterwards for lunch, shopping, and exploring the city before returning to Florence on the bus or train as we did.

Wonderful city and tour!
Nov 2021
Margarita was a wonderful tour guide of this beautiful city. She shared the history and culture behind this unique city. We learned so much and never would have been able to appreciate the city without her insight. Siena's Duomo is simply not to be missed, words cannot fully describe it's beauty. Also, The Basilic of San Domenico was very interesting and enjoyable. Highly recommend the tour. Afterwards, shopping and restaurants in Siena were wonderful. Just be warned that Siena is very hilly - but well worth every step!

Informative and Interesting Tour!
Jul 2021 • Couples
Very informative tour! Georgia was our guide and she was great! We learned so much about the history of Siena. Really helps when you’re in a new city to understand what you are looking at. And skipping the line at the Duomo was great too! Wear comfortable walking shoes as Siena is quite hilly. Highly recommend!

Jul 2021 • Solo
Very nice walk in the city, with lots of informations about history but also daily life. I would have missed lots of details without this tour.
Silvia has been a great guide, and as Sienna is not big, I was not tired at the end :-)

We could tell within the first minute that our guide, Georgia, was going to give us a fantastic tour of Siena and we wern’t disappointed. Georgia brought the history of Siena to life with interesting stories, a sense of humour and an incredible depth of knowledge.
