It was a wonderful tour giving us all the flavour of Siena especially on Palio day. Elena was a lovely and knowledgable guide who was born in Siena and seemed to know everything- and everyone - in the City!

We know that the Palio was so much better when it can be easily seen rather than in the square. While expensive, the chance to see the parade and race well made it worthwhile for us. Recommended!

This was a wonderful experience. The Palio was thrilling and everything from tickets, seat and meals were first class. My guide, Stella was outstanding . 5 star package all the way
