The Siena Walking Tour was a great idea! Our guide, Shaklo ', proved not only prepared, but also very nice and engaging. He accompanied us along the most significant places in Siena, telling us about history and architecture, but above all he transmitted us the enthusiasm with which the Sienese live the palio, he told us all the traditions that are linked to it, he transmitted us what it means for them live the district. She was not in a hurry, she enjoyed the visit with us, and, since it was a very cold afternoon, she made herself available to extend the duration of the visit a little to stop us in a bar to get something warm. The tour lasts a couple of hours (but we did not choose the option to enter the Duomo, we reserve it for another time) and is a great way to discover this beautiful city in a short time. My 12 year old daughter also liked it. I recommend it.

We were able to experience a very nice and interesting city tour with Sigrid. Due to the small number of participants, we were able to ask questions very well and learned a lot of new things. (I'm still fascinated by how many numbers and dates Sigrid was able to remember). It was great, thank you!

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.
