A Relaxed Pace Tour of Great Food, Wine and History
Timothy_H, Mar 2024
We had a very enjoyable experience with our guide Sandra touring food shops and restaurants of Siena. Her knowledge of the city, regional cuisine and food / wine pairings was very much appreciated and exactly what we were looking for during our tour. The pace was not rushed, yet we discovered more areas of Siena than expected.
Local food and wine tour Fantastico!
Tim_M, Jan 2024
Sondra took us to small shop for a local wine tasting then on to a great lunch spot where had some amazing pasta and another wonderful white wine for lunch. She then took us to her favorite bakery for some treats. Sondra shared her knowledge of all the local traditions which we loved. I would highly recommend this tour if you want a truly local experience!

I had an unforgettable experience with Alessandra and her food tour in Siena. Her extensive knowledge of Siena, coupled with her expertise in wines and local cuisine, made the tour truly exceptional. Alessandra took us to hidden gems where we savored delectable meats, wines, cheeses, pastas, gelato, and sweets. Her passion for the region and its culinary delights added an extra layer of enjoyment to the tour. I highly recommend Alessandra and this food tour for a delightful journey through Siena's flavors and culture.
Wonderful Experience!

Our walking food tour with Alexandra was a wonderful experience. We enjoyed her knowledge of wines and food offerings. We were able to make choices after her descriptions. Every stop had delicious selections. I definitely recommend you add the wine package to your tour!
Best food and wine tour ever.

Sandra was a remarkably gracious and knowledgeable host. She’s a Siena native and sommelier who maximized our time with a relevant blend of culture, history, food, and wine. She’s a brilliant guide and I will likely attend another of her tours when I’m back in Siena.
Inside experience of food and wine in Siena!

Wonderful tour! Sandra was so lovely and knowledgable of the local history and foods we had. We tried some fantastic local meats, cheeses and wine. We loved the charm of Siena and this tour gave us a rich taste of fresh made pasta and gelato - pour and basic ingredients which we loved.
Yes yes yes

Sandra our food tour guide was excellent. Great food venues, experienced local from Siena, experienced sommelier who knows her wines, and most importantly so so friendly and kind. Would do this again anytime. Two thumbs up. 👍👍
Great small group food tour
Brian_P, Sep 2023
Sandra was a fantastic tour guide. We spent a lovely 3.5 hrs in Siena walking around the walled city and eating like a local. The food was delicious and in just the right portions.
Lovely afternoon

Our tour guide Alexandra was charming. She recently moved here with her family from Ukraine so her energy and enthusiasm was quite contagious. She also studied as a sommelier so she knew quite a bit about wine. The only complaint was too much food!!! Also recommend buying the drink package.
Worth the money
Sophia_B, Sep 2023
This tour was what we hoped for. Our certified guide Sandra is born in Siena and a wine sommelier. She told us interesting facts abour the towns history, its districts and the paleo. Sandra made perfect wine recomandations for everything we ate. We ate only at local and never touristic stops, which was great. We had a table everywhere and Sandra managed all the orders. I'm a vegetarian but that was no problem at all. Every stop had vegetarian options and at one stop where everyone had meat, Sandra asked for a variety of cheeses for me which was very nice. We never had the feeling to be stressed to get to the next stop, we always could take our time and enjoy the best food. We learned so much and had a lovely day in Siena.
We had a very memorable...

I wish I could leave more than five stars. We had such a fun and informative day with Alexandra. The wines she choose and the guidances to the food pairing at each stop was so memorable. She is just such a warm and friendly person and we would highly recommend her tour.
