Shaklo was an excellent tour guide and we really enjoyed this tour. She shared so much information and many great stories. It was a fast paced tour and covered a significant amount of Siena. The end at the Siena Cathedral was a perfect stopping point to take in an amazing historic place for religion and architecture. This is a must tour if you come to Siena!
We elected to sign up of the Siena Historic City Walking Tour with the Cathedral Option. As stated on the TA website, you must purchase your Cathedral tickets (Separately) in advance online or at their ticket cathedral office. The "option" means your guide will enter the Cathedral and share important highlights you will not want to miss while inside! Make sure you do this, as the cathedral is huge and you definitely want to hear the history and information that will be provided by your tour guide.
We purchased tickets online (Provided by Headout Bookings for the Cathedral) and it says you can download and "show these tickets on your phone" for entry. Does not work! If you purchase online, you must print the tickets in advance or go to the ticket office at the Cathedral so they can print them! Then you go back to the entrance line to enter. Important detail you will not want to miss, for sure! Enjoy the tour, it was fantastic! Ciao!

Our guide Frederica was fluent in English and clearly chose topics to relate to us based on where we could stop. She managed to pack a lot into the 1.5 hour tor ending outside the Duomo and then took those who had opted for the cathedral tour inside. I had the impression that she could speak knowledgeably on many more topics than came up on the tour. She was careful to ensure that the group stayed together.

Very good tour of Siena! The cathedral is the most beautiful I have seen and well worth the price of admission. If you want to go in to the cathedral make sure to buy your ticket in advance to avoid waiting in line as they are not included in the price of this tour. You must purchase Mobil tickets at least the day prior to your tour to avoid the que.

The tour started at Piazza del Campo and had several stops in the historic city center. Unfortunately our tour guide gave us just random information without any context. This lead to the fact, that we didn't got the chance to gather a understanding what made this town so special in ancient times in the first place. You could see in the faces of the participants that after a while the people were lost and not following the guide any more.
Additionally the headphones didn't work. Since we had to "hurry up" there was no time to fix them and frequently we couldn't hear the guid at all.

I have to realize that I have more questions left open than clarified about the town of Siena and therefore the price of 25€ + 9€ (cathedral) was not justified.

We are very sorry that you had a so bad experience with us. Usually our clients are always very happy with our tour and with the guide that you had for the experience. Our offices are always open, and we would have appreciated if you would have told us your opinion in person, in order that we could find a better solution for everybody. We are always open to discuss critical issues and problems. According to the price of the tour: we remind you that you had 2 hours tour with a professional guide, and the price of the Cathedral entrance (9 euros) depends not on us. It is a price that everybody pays with or without a guide. In this period of the year the entrance fee is 9 euros because the floor of the Cathedral is uncovered, which by the way, 9 euros are very worth it! You have chosen a group tour (for us the max is 15 persons, you were in 6) and not a Private Tour. Sometimes there is not enough time to deepen some aspects that you were interested in, also in order to respect the other persons on the tour. For this reason we suggest to everybody who wants to have a really detailed tour, to book a private tour, in order that the guide is absolutely at your own disposal. We really hope, that you will return to visit Siena with us, so that you will change your mind about our very professional guides!

Ludovica organised a tour of Siena including a visit of the Duomo for our family (a couple + toddler +baby). I can’t recommend her enough! On top of sorting out all administrative tasks (tickets, restaurant - Antica Salumeria Salvini highly recommended - etc) she tailor made the tour which was extremely interesting for parents and captivating for our son who since then keeps talking about the flags of the different districts, the Palio and mosaics seen in the duomo.

She is extremely knowledgeable, fun and knows all the funny stories which makes the whole difference from guide vert Michelin style visits!

The tour was in French as we are a French family (she fluently speaks 6 languages). Having a guide made the whole difference, instead of spending time between feeding a baby, running after a grumpy toddler, following directions on a map and reading the stories behind each landmark, we just all enjoyed our time and came home full of memories!

A superb tour, one of the best we have done anywhere in the world. Shaqlo was informative, interesting, funny and spoke English very clearly. We got a good insight into how society works in Siena, with the rivalry between contradas (districts) exemplified by the twice-yearly horse race ( Palio) around the Campo in the centre of town. An excellent morning - entertaining and educational.

Ludovica was the perfect tour guide. Her enthusiasm and knowledge made the 1.5hrs fly by. I was so glad to have done the tour as I came away with such a better understanding of the history and culture of Siena. What a special place. Thank you Ludovica!

Fantastic walking tour with very amiable and knowledgeable local guide. We booked a small group tour but in the end there were only the two of us plus the guide. Really useful to get under the skin of the place and experience a little local culture. We saw places we would never have found by ourselves.
