A group of 8 friends took a tour of Siena with Barbara. The tour was excellent and started at the Campo and then moved to some off the beaten track places. Barbara also took us to many of the don’t miss sights in Siena as well. This was my second tour with Barbara and it was as good as the 1st one. Barbara has excellent knowledge of Siena - both the history and the local culture - and is able to share it with her guests in a interesting way. At lunchtime, Barbara took us to a wonderful restaurant for a Tuscan meal. Barbara was very accommodating about the places we wanted to visit while on the tour. When the tour was complete she even recommended a wonderful little restaurant we could visit for dinner prior to our return bus trip to Florence. Arranging the tour was simple and handled efficiently by email. Our group was in Italy for 2 weeks and one member mentioned that Siena was his favourite place visited during the trip. I’m sure this feeling was helped by the tour we had from Barbara.

Barbara was fantastic. Great history knowledge and insight from one who grew up in one of the districts. I recommend doing a late afternoon tour followed by dinner with Barbara, who has the knowledge base to take you to places you may not have read about. She can direct you to restaurants based on your likes/interests. We were 3 couples in Tuscany doing winery visits and she took us to a great enoteca with tremendous food and great wine! I highly recommend her tour.

A two hour tour of Siena proved to be the highlight of our week in Tuscany. Barbara is a passionate, knowledgeable guide who brought the city to life for us. Don’t just walk aimlessly around trying to work it out for yourself, hire this lady. You will not be disappointed.

I would highly recommend Barbara. She is so knowledgeable about the history and art of Siena and Italy Her stories were so interesting and she really brought the Palio to life. Her passion for guiding and teaching and her love for Siena is very evident. If you want to make the most of your visit to this wonderful town let Barbara be your guide.

Barbara took us through Sienna and told us historical information but also what it is like to live in the city now. It was the time of the horse race and she gave us great insight into this tradition. She was also very open to our ideas and what we wanted to see and know. I highly recommend her.
