This was a fantastic experience for our family! Sylvia was a very knowledgeable and engaging tour guide. She tried to connect with our kids, asking them questions along the way. We visited eight different cities on our trip to Italy, and our children liked Siena the best because of the tour we had with Sylvia. Highly recommend this tour for families with kids, you will all learn a lot and enjoy seeing this beautiful city!

Well organized tour with a lot of exciting stations - suitable for the younger daughter at 5 as well as the older one at 12. Our guide Isabel did a fantastic job and involved both children very well. Everything was doable for the children on foot without any problems - we would book the tour again immediately.

Easy booking, easy to solve, even our 6 year old was able to join in. A great family experience where you can take your time so you can really see the city and not just solve the next puzzle. We'll definitely do it again in the next town

It was very interesting, especially being a first such experience. We had an amazing time with my two teenager kids who got very involved in the quest. BTW the story was quite creative!

A great tour! The tour guide was great and spoke excellent German. The tour was exciting for our son (10). Highly recommended!
