Great experience. We got a lot of background knowledge from our guide on the German tour. You could feel how much fun she had working as a guide and that she was very educated. She spoke very interestingly, answered all questions and took the time for us. I think the group was 8 people strong. Many greetings to our charming tour guide

On our tour in a small group, we learned a lot of amazing things, especially about the Contrada, Palio and (partly unfinished) sights of Siena. Our guide answered all of our curious questions about Siena tradition and had great anecdotes ready. She took the time to look for shade, so that the exciting tour lasted well over an hour, which was very entertaining. In between we were able to fill up our drinking bottles.
