Our tour with Stella was excellent! She showed us parts of Siena that only someone who knows the city well could share. We returned to Piazza di Duomo the next day and toured the catherdral and the Santa Maria della Scala. Descending to the lower levels to see the Roman, Etruscan (and older!) artifacts was fascinating. It was all so much more meaningful thanks to information she shared with us.

Our family loved our tour of Siena with Stella. She was warm, entertaining and very knowledgeable and obviously had a great love for her city. The day flew by so quickly and Stella brought this fabulous city to life. She was also very caring, kind and flexible. We loved how she went out of her way to arrange a private tour of the synagogue in Siena for us. The experience was very moving. By the end of the day we felt Stella was part of the family. Definitely a five star guide!!!!
Stella was a fountain of knowledge and paces things very well for my parents. A good time was had by all. We would look for Stella again in the future
Barbara HornbachUnited States
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour. Stella was very personable and highly knowledgeable about Siena Overall and the sites we visited. Two of the 6 of us had been to Siena previously and we learned things that we had never known. The highlight of the tour was our visit to the State Archives - the wooden book covers dating from the 14C through the 16C were stunningly beautiful and the volumes of books going back to the 13C were fascinating. I would highly recommend the Classic Siena tour & Stella.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: grazie Barbara and all my new friends! It was really amazing to share with you my town and its artistic and historic beauty but for sure also a great sense of humor!!!! How was lunch with the dolphins? I am sure you thoroughly loved it! baci next time I will show you other magic places here in Siena and its land. Baci! Stella

Stella was wonderful. Very friendly, extremely smart, and ready to customize our experience. We felt like locals for a few hours, and we learned far more than we had hoped for.

Stella did a wonderful job showing us around Siena. We visited many of the towns churches and shrines. She was well prepared and even brought a binder of pictures, so she could explain the importance of a particular painting prior to seeing it in person. Our tour focused on the artwork and architecture of Siena. It was very informative and her passion and enthusiasm for these subjects are contagious. We would enthusiastically recommend Stella.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: grazie Michael! It was a great pleasure for me to meet your lovely family and to walk in the city where I was born, I am sure you are now great chefs too! hope to meet you again soon! hugs stella
