(English below) De avond voordat ik naar Siena ging, besloot ik deze tour te boeken en ik ben blij dat ik dit gedaan heb. Het is zo veel fijner om een stad te ontdekken aan de hand van de verhalen die bij de stad horen. Je kan wel het een en ander van het internet halen of uit boekjes lezen, maar het van iemand horen die er woont is 100 maal beter. Ik raad ook zeker aan om de optionele rondleiding door de kathedraal bij te boeken. Let wel op, dat je de entreekaarten nog los moet boeken. The night before I went to Siena, I decided to book this tour and I am glad I did. Discovering a place by the stories told by your guide is so much better then getting your info from the internet or travelguides. I strongly suggest to also book the optional tour through the cathedral. Entrance tickets need to be booked seperately.

Excellent time spent with Ludovica where we had the privilege of being just the three of us. She made us discover Siena thanks to lots of anecdotes related to the place where we were. Finally, we made the visit to the cathedral which is not to be missed !! Go for it with your eyes closed, you won't be disappointed! Thank you Ludovica again for this wonderful moment of discovery!

Excellent 1 hour tour including the history and culture of Siena.

Our guide was knowledgeable and interesting throughout the tour. She was able to bring important events like the Palio to life for us and helped us understand the culture of the Contradas. It was just long enough and ended in front of the beautiful cathedral where we could then enter on our own if we wanted. Perfect introduction to Siena.
