    Wonderful day emerged in Viking History
    Cathleen_K, Jun 2023
    Fascinating history of the Viking Era... We learned so much about their impact on the world. Guide was easy to understand and went above and beyond to accommodate our interests. Highly recommended!!
    Great Tour

    Silvia was very friendly and knowledgable. The tour made Siena come alive and was a very nice walk through a very beautiful city!
    Great personal guide for Siena
    Alan_S, Aug 2022
    Silvia is a great guide. Her knowledge of the city and its history are top notch. We were fortunate to be visiting on the feast day of one of the Contradas of Siena, so we got to see the parade of its members. Silvia was great about explaining what was happening, and how it all relates not only to the Palio, but to all the citizens of the inner city. If you can, book Silvia for a tour of Siena. You won't regret it!
    Wonderful tour!
    Matthew_R, Aug 2022
    The tour guide, Silvia, was excellent! She was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. She was also very kind because we were running late. Also, we were able to communicate with her via phone to let her know we were running late. That was very nice of her to share her phone number. It was very helpful.
    Fun tour of Siena
    Joseph_U, Jul 2022
    Silvia was a wonderful guide. She provided many interesting facts about Siena, especially the upcoming Palio event. She was very pleasant and made the whole experience very enjoyable.

    Great private tour for a family with kids
    Nicole_A, Apr 2022
    Silvia was a really great guide. She was great with our kids. I would highly recommend this tour as a family with lots of kids. She included them and made it interesting and also was very interesting for the adults as well.
    Great private tour - recommended
    Axel_B, Aug 2021
    The guide Silvia has broad knowledge of different subjects like architecture, history, local food, people of the city ... and uses it to customize the tour individually to the audience. We have learned a lot about Siena and had a lot of fun. It was a great experience.
    Response from Host, Aug 2021
    Thank you for your review :D I am glad you enjoyed the tour with me. Tailor-made tours are the ones I prefer... next time I am going to take you to see something new, maybe the Valdorcia area could be interesting for you. Thanks! Silvia
    Perfect Introduction to Siena
    Joe_K, Sep 2020
    Great tour of a beautiful City. Sylvia is an extremely knowledgable and entertaining guide and the time just went so fast. We especially loved the background On the Palio. Would highly recommend this to other travellers.
    Wonderful and informative
    Matthew_K, Jul 2019
    Our tour was very well done, informative and well-paced. We saw important attractions and learned things that aren't necessarily in the books. Our guide was passionate and knowledgeable.
    Perfect day in Siena!

    This was the perfect way to see the highlights in Siena. Sylvia was very knowledgeable and really helped us learn the history of this great place. She spent quality time with us and really went above and beyond our expectations.
    Knowledgeable and accommodating
    Rachel_S, Aug 2018
    We screwed up & traveled to Sienna a day early. One of Silvia’s colleagues called Silvia, & she arrived in 20 minutes to save our visit. She accommodated us though she’d had other plans. She is pleasant, really knows her stuff, and made great recommendations for dining, etc. She was so professional in every way!

    Kristen K, Nov 2017
    Silvia Roncucci was our guide and we had a wonderful tour. She was so knowledgeable and passionate about Siena. Siena is a fascinating city but we would have just walked by so many interesting things if we didn't have a guide. My husband and I felt like we received an amazing introduction to this historical city. We would recommend this tour and Silvia to anyone visiting Siena and if you are in this area of Italy put it on your list!

    Silvia is incredible! We absolutely loved walking around Sienna with her. She was very knowledgeable, and she hit all of the major highlights with us! She made sure to discuss all of the things we were looking for and more! We would recommend this tour to anyone. It was our favorite during our 10 day stay in Italy!

    Scott B, Jun 2017
    Silvia was a very friendly, knowledgeable and talented guide. We'd been to Siena before and had stayed right in town, but had explored on our own with the help of guide books. We welcomed the opportunity to visit Siena again, and were extremely grateful for our time on tour with Silvia. She explained facts, history and a personal perspective on Siena that we'd not have otherwise received. She was flexible with scheduling and gave us great recommendations for the rest our day's visit back in Siena.

    Terry C, Apr 2017
    Silvia was gracious, informative, and obviously passionate about her city. Siena was the highlight of our tour in Italy made very memorable by our guide. She brought to life the history and character of this hidden gem from ancient times to the modern era. I highly recommend Silvia for anyone wishing to visit this great town!

    Bernadette_M, Jan 2017
    Our guide was amazing... very knowledgeable and interesting. Sienna is a place you need a guide to really learn about the extraordinary history and gain access to the hidden gems you would never find wandering around this hill top walled city on your own. Perfect tour in every way.
