    Our guide for the tour of Siena was great and very informative about the history and stories behind the sights that we were seeing from the Duomo to the Piazza del Campo. She pointed out details of the area and local customs and reasons behind the Italian traditions, like the Palio of Siena. Hopefully we will be able to return one year to see this interesting horse race.

    A really good informative and fun, fact filled tour.
    Francesca_S, Nov 2023
    Erica was an excellent guide, very informative and full of fun facts. As the other people who had booked the tour did not turn up I had a “Private” tour and this was the complete cherry on the cake! I would thoroughly recommend Erica and her tour to anyone who wants to learn all about Siena. Clearly Erica loves her city and by the end of the tour so did I!

    We expected to discover...
    Louis_R, Jul 2023
    We expected to discover cellars more impressive in terms of their structure and more related to the promotional photos of the visit. Our guide was able to give us historical information about the city and the wine tradition but fortunately our group was small because without an audio system it was difficult to understand what she said.
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    Dear Customer, Thank you for sharing your feedback with us. We are sorry that you are not as much satisfied as you expected from this tour. As per the cellars they are different as it depends on their construction architecture. It is a personal opinion about the taste, some customers like them and some not. As you said the group was small, and in this case it wasn't difficult to hear the guide, that's why audio sytem wasn't used. Hope to see you again in our tours in the future, so we can show you our service improvements. Best regards, My Tour in Italy team.

    The tour was disappointing, we did not get to learn much about Siena and as it was a combined English and Italian tour. The guide was hard to hear and you never knew when the guide was going to switch languages.
    Response from Host, Jul 2023
    Dear customer, Thank you for your feedback. We are very sorry that you were disappointed from this tour. We ensure you that our guide has done their best with the explanation of the tour, by giving all the important details and information about the destination of the tour. As for the language the tour you have booked is availible in some different languages and the people in the group were from different countries. Also, we see this as a good opportunity for our customers to create interactions with each other and learn about their different cultures. From our other feedbacks, there are customers that made good friendships with each other during their experience with us. Best regards, My Tour in Italy team.
    Never again
    Linda_P, Jun 2023
    I am so disappointed with how this turned out. I will never book with Viator again as they are no help when you have any questions or need assistance. They just keep bouncing you around… call this number, then call this number and no one can give you any help.
    Interesting tour, local knowledge
    Robert_J, May 2023

    Don't miss it!!! No regrets!!!!
    Ana_W, Jun 2022
    The tour guide (cant remember her name) was super knowledgeable, friendly, helped us with individual needs, had great stories, and answered all questions without hesitation. Incredible!! She spoke excellent English and Spanish. It is held in a small group which makes it better when traveling with teenagers to maintain their attention, information shared was relevant so nobody got distracted. Most of the city is covered during the tour.
    Response from Host, Jun 2022
    Dear Ana, We want every experience to be “five stars”! Glad to hear you loved your journey with us and the team will be thrilled to hear your feedback! Best Regards My Tour

    She was very knowledgeable and flexible. We enjoyed listening to her explanations.. She was very accommodating when we were a little bit late because of parking issues.
