Our guide, Shaklo was really knowledgeable, funny and nice! I did not expect much besides learning about the cathedral, but she walked us around the town too. We learned a lot about Siena and the people in Siena!
Beautiful time in Sienna

Matthew_L, Jul 2018
This was an amazing tour and yet, exhausting as well. We really enjoyed our tour guide and his heart for history and the city. He was an excellent tour guide and really enjoyed the journey. Lots of walking for sure on this one and note: walking to the top of this one is intense but, worth it for sure.
Notre guide était top avec de belles histoires légendaires à raconter, on a fini par la piazza del campo où se déroule le pallio chaque année, passionnante
