Marella was our guide who was welcoming informative and entertaining. We were only there for one night but learnt so much in those 2 hours walking around Siena and finishing in the Duomo got his cathedral. Highly recommended if you want to know more about Siena

Mare our tour guide was absolutely great, not only is she a native of Siena (Dragon Contrada), she was knowledgeable, soft spoken, clear and gave local anecdotes to relay historical facts with flavor. Love it!
