Great personal guide for Siena
, Aug 2022
Silvia is a great guide. Her knowledge of the city and its history are top notch. We were fortunate to be visiting on the feast day of one of the Contradas of Siena, so we got to see the parade of its members. Silvia was great about explaining what was happening, and how it all relates not only to the Palio, but to all the citizens of the inner city. If you can, book Silvia for a tour of Siena. You won't regret it!
Wonderful tour!
, Aug 2022
The tour guide, Silvia, was excellent! She was very knowledgeable and spoke English very well. She was also very kind because we were running late. Also, we were able to communicate with her via phone to let her know we were running late. That was very nice of her to share her phone number. It was very helpful.
Fun tour of Siena

Silvia was a wonderful guide. She provided many interesting facts about Siena, especially the upcoming Palio event. She was very pleasant and made the whole experience very enjoyable.

Great private tour for a family with kids

Silvia was a really great guide. She was great with our kids. I would highly recommend this tour as a family with lots of kids. She included them and made it interesting and also was very interesting for the adults as well.
Great private tour - recommended
, Aug 2021
The guide Silvia has broad knowledge of different subjects like architecture, history, local food, people of the city ... and uses it to customize the tour individually to the audience. We have learned a lot about Siena and had a lot of fun. It was a great experience.

Thank you for your review :D I am glad you enjoyed the tour with me. Tailor-made tours are the ones I prefer... next time I am going to take you to see something new, maybe the Valdorcia area could be interesting for you. Thanks! Silvia

We screwed up & traveled to Sienna a day early. One of Silvia’s colleagues called Silvia, & she arrived in 20 minutes to save our visit. She accommodated us though she’d had other plans. She is pleasant, really knows her stuff, and made great recommendations for dining, etc. She was so professional in every way!

Silvia Roncucci was our guide and we had a wonderful tour. She was so knowledgeable and passionate about Siena. Siena is a fascinating city but we would have just walked by so many interesting things if we didn't have a guide. My husband and I felt like we received an amazing introduction to this historical city. We would recommend this tour and Silvia to anyone visiting Siena and if you are in this area of Italy put it on your list!

Silvia was a very friendly, knowledgeable and talented guide. We'd been to Siena before and had stayed right in town, but had explored on our own with the help of guide books. We welcomed the opportunity to visit Siena again, and were extremely grateful for our time on tour with Silvia. She explained facts, history and a personal perspective on Siena that we'd not have otherwise received. She was flexible with scheduling and gave us great recommendations for the rest our day's visit back in Siena.

Silvia is very knowledgeable about Siena. She can answer every curious question of practically every corner of the city. I love how she makes my wife and 6-yo daughter feel comfortable about the whole experience.
