Review of: Private Tour: Secret Siena Walking Tour
We did a 3-hour private tour of Siena with Giorgia this summer with our two teenage children. It was just perfect! Giorgia is extremely knowledgeable about all aspects of Siena and beyond, and it clearly showed in the depth of her answers to the very many questions that we asked. She was flexible to adapt the tour based on what we were interested in. Although not originally from Siena, she knows and loves the city like a local and has the ability to make the tour unforgettable. 160 Euros for a fantastic private our of Sienna. Very good value for money. Probably the best private city tour that we have ever done.…

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.

We spent 4 days with Tuscany Escapes in September’19 and had a fabulous time. We’re ashamed it’s taken us so long to write this review for a company we had such a good time with! Our guides Davide, Mare and Ambra went out of their way to make our stay interesting and enjoyable. We felt very safe being driven and were taken to wonderful places and restaurants that we would never have found on our own. We also did a great group walking tour through Siena with Claudia a passionate member of the Unicorn contrada! Everything we did with Tuscan Escapes was interesting and fun and all the guides were charming, knowledgeable, enthusiastic and a pleasure to spend time with. If you are thinking of going to Tuscany you’ll have a magical time with this company. We did!…

Our guide, Giada, was spectacular! On time pickup, incredibly knowledgeable on the two sites (and points between). Friendly and funny! Although more pricey than a group tour, a private tour is amazing and can be tailored to your needs. I can not sing her praises Hugh enough!

My husband and two adult children loved our hike last June. The guide was great and talked about the area and the history of the walking path. It took us 3.5 hours and the last hour was more challenging being hilly and rocky. The wine tasting with food pairings was a perfect ending to our hike. We loved it so much we ordered wine to be shipped home.…
