Half an hour too late, the tour started (3:30 instead of 3). The two of us had to join a larger group, which clearly had a different program. The English of the guide (an older lady) was OK, yet not very entertaining (no story line). After one hour we were already 'done'. Conclusion: very expensive for just an hour, no recommendation.

Dear Customer, Thank you for taking time to write this review as for us it’s helpful to improve the quality of our service. We are sorry for the slight delay, pointing out that the guided visit starts at 3:15 as showed on the voucher and not at 3:00 pm. However we understand that the time lost was recovered according the expected duration. Let us say that the guide has many years of experience in doing this job and her competence and skill are proven by many positive reviews received over the years. Actually it’s the first time that someone bring to our attention the fact that she is not very entertaining and make sure that we will point out to her what you have noticed so that she will try to improve this aspect of her job. Also we clarify that you took part to a collective tour with the same program where people have the possibility to choose different options. In your case, you have booked the option including only the external visit of the Cathedral (not the interior visit) which has a different price, however if you wished you could ask the guide to pay the difference on the spot and follow her inside the Cathedral. Many thanks for your feedback and kind regards

We had a very good and competent guide, who covered the main areas of Siena, however our group was split between French and English which reduced the effective flow of the tour and information.

Thank you for taking time to write this review and let us say that we are proud to know that you have greatly appreciated our guide. Also we would like to clarify that if you are part of a collective tour, the guide service could be in two languages as it’s stated on our general conditions and this is quite normal for such a kind of tour. However our competent and skill guides are able to give exhaustive information in both languages. Thank you for your feedback and for choosing our tour. Kind regards

I absolutely loved this tour. The community life of Siena and the history that brought this community life to be was absolutely fascinating to hear. One thing was brought up by my mom, she thought that the tour was a little too centered on the horse race. I haden't thought so myself, but thinking back on it when she did the remark I found it to be good. I wouldve prefered to hear even more about the community life (of which the horse races is an important part I know, but lets say different parts) or the history of the city.

I enjoyed the tour and like the tour guide a lot. However our tour was split between English and German, so I feel that half of the time is a bit wasted. When we booked the tour I remember selecting English tour.

This was a great way to see and understand the Siena traditions, buildings, and history. The guide was competent, friendly and easy to understand. I had been here before but this tour filled in the blanks!

Siena un tuffo nel passato

Il tour della città è stato molto interessante. La guida preparata e simpatica ci ha raccontato Siena. Unico neo il tour non corrisponde alla descrizione. Nessuna visita al museo di una contrada ne la visita ad una contrada ( se pur durante il tour abbiamo approfondito l'argomento). Ho aperto una contestazione al tour operator che mi ha rimborsato 1/4 del biglietto. Ho apprezzato, non tanto per l'importo, ma per la serietà nella risoluzione della problematica.

Guide très intéressante expliquant en 2 langues. Petit bémol la visite de la basilique au pas de course afin que l'organisateur puisse récupérer ses audio guides!!!!!!!!!!
