“Excellent Tour”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

We did a 3 hour walking tour with Costanza on June 8th. Prior to arriving in Italy, I researched what tours were recommended and found great reviews about this one for Siena. Costanza promptly answered my initial email inquiry and we confirmed a time and meeting place. Although we got lost and were at the wrong meeting place, she was able to find us and we started our tour. Her knowledge of the history of Siena and all the various sites we visited was outstanding. It was truly a very memorable experience. If you are looking for a private walking tour, I would definitely recommend Costanza- you will not be disappointed.

“she brought her hometown to life”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 18, 2013

Hello Costanza:

Sharon and I wanted to tell everyone that beautiful Siena would have been buildings, churches and hills but with you the town came alive with history, funny stories of rival factions, your memories of your girlhood going to school in Siena and your life there now. Walking the back alleys with you, finding hidden treasures that only a local would know about brought Sharon and I back in time. We wanted a special off the beaten track tour and that is what Costanza created for us. So for anyone wondering is it worth it to hire a private guide I would say only if it is with Costanza.Oh, and by the way her rates are very reasonable. So ciao Costanza from Neil and Sharon in Philadelphia.

“Costanza is Great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2013

We wanted a guide to walk us around Siena, so we checked TripAdvisor and found Costanza. She came very highly recommended, and rightly so. She promptly replied to our email, made arrangements to meet us at Porto San Marco the next day, and off we went. From explanations about the history and culture of the city, to wonderful detail about the Duomo, to finally recommending and guiding us to a great little restaurant for lunch, Osteria Titti (more on that separately), she was a pleasure. We even ran into her later in the day with her daughter who's a doll. Very much recommended.

“Great Walking Tour of Siena”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2013

Costanza provided a walking tour for our group of Siena. Great job! She suggested headphones so we could hear better - what a great idea. She could talk while we were walking (not just stopped) and everyone heard perfectly. So much information well presented. She planned the route so we ended just a short walk from where we had to catch our bus. Highly recommended!

“Costanza Knows Everything!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were on a tight schedule and Costanza took us on a tour that covered many of the important points in Siena. We thought the Duomo was spectacular and Costanza shared a wealth of information with us. She did a great job despite some really bad weather. At one point, we had to take a break because it was raining so hard. We stopped for lunch and even then, Costanza continued to provide us with details and stories of Siena. We are convinced that when it comes to Siena, Costanza knows everything. We highly recommend Costanza and look forward to returning to Italy to take another Costanza tour!
