What a great tour! I learned so much about Siena that I never would’ve known by just walking the city myself. I also loved that it was far more personal given the small size. Seeing the massive tour groups go by made me appreciate this one all that much more.

(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!
