See What Our Clients Say About Our Walking Tours

"What a great city! In a three-hour tour, we were guided very knowledgeably and warmly by Octavia! We couldn't have imagined a better guide on this, as it turned out, a private walking tour. She was able to tell with great experience about the history, beauty, and architecture of the city. She was particularly able to convey the background of the 17 districts and the passion of the inhabitants for their city. Worth a big compliment! Highlight of our honeymoon!"

"Very pleasant and interesting guided tour. Starting from the Cateriniana Church of San Domenico we passed to admire the streets of the center learning the history of the city and the birth and "rivalry" of the districts in the days that usually precede the palio (which this year and last unfortunately did not take place) . Then visit of Piazza del Campo and the Cathedral. Getting to know a city and our history in this way is priceless. We thank our guide Giulia for her skill in telling us about her Siena and for all the extra goodies that we had the pleasure of listening and learning."

"Absolutely great guide, excellent guide. We were lucky, there were only two of us. If you want to get to know Siena this tour is a must. It costs something, but it's worth it"
