Our family (6 adults) asked Elena to spend 2 days with us on our journey in Siena and in the surrounding towns of Montalcino and Pienza. In Siena we toured the local town and Elena's knowledge of the Cathedral was unsurpassed. She arranged all the details for us so our 3 hour walking tour was effortless. The following day we... More

We (2 parents and 2 young adult children) had a wonderful 3 hour tour of Siena with Elena. She took us to many highlights of the city and shared her own family history. Her enthusiasm for language, learning, and art are apparent. Elena gave us just the right amount of information, without overwhelming us. She was professional and personal--catering the... More

As others have stated, she is incredibly knowledgeable, personable and has a passion for the area. She was great with our large group. But even more importantly, Elena was a fabulous resource...

I had already fallen in love with Siena but then Elena and I spent 3 hours together as she walked me around this beautiful town. Elena is a wealth of knowledge but she's more than that, she is funny engaging and completely charming. She took me to places of the normal 'must see' list. I highly recommend Elena as a... More

Elena provided a wonderful tour of Siena for our small family group. Her knowledge and insight made the tour both interesting and insightful. She was very flexible and made arrangements for a tour even though she was very busy during the Palio horse race week. She called us the day before to rearrange our schedule so she could show us...

What an incredible skill it is to meet complete strangers and tune into what things will interest them about your city. Well Elena nailed it! Maybe it is simply her passion for her city that is so contagious, but it is more than that. She frankly is a delightful person. Elena is profoundly knowledgeable, but never overwhelms you with facts.... More

We had a half day tour of Siena with Elena. She was a wonderful historian and her love for Siena shows with each step through this great city. Elena wound together the long tapestry of Siena's history by connecting the city's tradition with her people. From the cathedral to the various districts of the city Elena managed to tie city's...
