Our half day tour with Stella was great! Stella grew up in Siena and has a lot of knowledge about the town. We were there during Palio, and our 10 year old son loved the explanations about the contradas and the race. Stella even arranged last minute tickets to a practice race while we were there.

Ciao! how are you? it is less busy here in november so I can sit down and thank you again for your visit in Siena last july during the very hectic Palio horse race days! I am sure your children still remember the colours and the atmosphere and maybe they will cheer next year for their favourite contrada! thank you again for your kindness and thank you for choosing Siena and Yuscany for your holidays! with love Stella

We had the great fortune of spending two full days with Stella. She provided great insight for the adults while engaging the 5 young children in our group (aged 6 to 10). In addition to providing great historical context, Stella have us access to interesting sites in Sienna that we would most certainly have walked right by had Stella not been with us. Stella also served as out your guide for San Gimignano and Montalcino and was equally helpful and informative. Both tours were great and the kids really bonded with her.

I would not hesitate to recommend Stella.

Our family of four with two kids ages 7 and 10 spent the morning with Stella. She was great. Very informative and enjoyable. She got my girls very interested in the Palio. She also taught us a lot about the town of Siena. We were originally planned for two hour tour. But since we were doing so great I asked her to stay for an hour longer. Great guide!

Stella provided not only historical facts, but insights only a lifelong resident can provide.

I only wish that we had more time with her. She can offer special access to places and events should you desire a specialized tour.

We had been to Siena a number of times before but not for il palio. Stella gave us insights we could not have discovered on our own.
