Like hanging with a good friend for a few hours
Ben_D, Jul 2023
Jalal was an excellent, empathetic, and knowledgeable guide to the city and to his experience as an immigrant scholar in Siena. He put in extra effort beforehand to understand my interests and customize the tour. We shared stories and chatted easily for four hours. I’m a big fan of the Canadian tour operator’s philosophy and approach to storytelling and local culture outside of typical tourist experiences! The tour operator did a good job beforehand in setting expectations for this experience. This style of tour is like visiting with a knowledgeable friend for a while, rather than doing an academic deep-dive into Sienese art, culture, and history. Set your own expectations appropriately and you’ll have a fabulous experience.
Great experience with a Sienese!

We really enjoyed our walk around Siena with Chiara. She was great! We've been to Siena before but wanted to learn some additional details about one of our favorite towns in Tuscany. Meeting a local is a great way to learn more about the cultural aspects of living here as well as obtain tips about restaurants and activities. Highly recommend!
