Thumbs up for Ludovica!
Aug 2020
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!

Thank you very much for your wonderful words. We are very happy to know that you had a beautiful experience with our guide Ludovica. Having a guide that organize your day, so you do not have to spend time to find the places to visit is also in our option really positive and relaxing. We really hope to see you soon, for another charming experience in our fabulous city, which is really small, but unimaginable rich!

Random information
Aug 2020
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!

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.

We enjoyed this basic walking tour of Siena. Our guide shared the history of the city and pointed out some interesting architectural features. It was a great way to get a general understanding of this special city. We especially appreciated that the guide lived in the area and was able to offer some local color about the neighborhood rivalries as well as make an excellent food recommendation for lunch.
