Roberta prepared a custom Palio di Siena tour, which was wonderfully informative. She kept the pace comfortable for both my daughter and my mother. We ended our tour at the perfect table in the Piazza del Campo to watch the assignment of the horses. Roberta then recommended the perfect restaurant close by for us to have lunch and even had a map that we had forgotten delivered to us there. Highly recommend!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I really want to thank you for spending a great morning with 3 great girls!! The Drago won the race but they were not so happy when there was the assignment!!! All the best

I hit the 5 stars twice to give roberta a "10" but it didn't work out. So she'll get a 5 but deserves a 10. What a nice person! It was wonderful to meet someone so knowledgeable about Siena that was so nice and personable at the same time. A leisurely walk through town and we learned a lot but it was just like taking a stroll with a friend. A lovely day and a lovely person!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Too good my dear Bruce. I also took a stroll with two lovely friends! Thank you for coming!
Robertas knows incredibly much not only about Siena but about the whole region and italian history-we could ask anything and always got a comprehensive, patient and profound answer. We learned so much about the Town and wandered through it with a different view after those three hours. Thank you Roberta for your detailed and diverting tour! You are a great guide!!!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you for your wonderful feedback but first of all thank you for the time I could spend with you and your sweet daughter ! Grazie mille Roberta

Marianne MooreUnited States
Roberta was a wonderful guide. I came away with a in-depth understanding of Siena past and present. Without her guiding I know it would not have been the same experience She made the trip!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You and your wonderful family made the trip! ! Grazie
Nancy WilliamsUnited States
Spectacular guide! You will spend your money wisely. Two American women who feel extremely fortunate to have had Roberta guide us around the historical city of Sienna. She spoke English clearly and was very accommodating to our needs as well as knowledgable about Sienna's architecture, art, religious figures, symbolism, and the famous horse races held each year. We loved her!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: And I loved you Nancy and Susan �� Thank you
Nishant PatelUnited States
Excellent tour of siena and Roberta is friendly and knowledgeable. Recommend it highly as many other larger tour groups won't give the same insight into this historic city.

Kevin OconnorUnited States
Roberta led a tour for four of us in Siena. We could not be happier with her performance. Her English is very clear and fluent. She has an engaging personality that strongly supports the content of the tour. She demonstrated extensive knowledge of Siena's history and current culture. She adjusted the tour content (with our complete agreement) to take advantage of an unexpected opportunity to see a seldom available local museum. This will be our best memory of the tour.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I will long remember you as too! Thank you so much Roberta
Mark BernalUnited States

Henry ParkhillUnited States
She was a great tour guide and we enjoyed every minute
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My real pleasure Henry! Thank you Roberta
If I could give a 6 star rating I would! Roberta was a pleasure from beginning to end. Arranging the tour was easy and Roberta was very responsive to all emails and communications. She arrived at our Airbnb 5 minutes early and asked a couple of questions so that she had a sense as to how best to tour us through beautiful Sienna. One in my group said "the tour with Roberta was a highlight of the 10 day trip"! I would recommend Roberta unequivocally! Lisa
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: My adorable Lisa, I won't forget the morning with the four fantastic ladies! Roberta
Christian BarrettUnited States
Roberta was excellent! Very knowledgeable about art and Etruscan history and very friendly. We toured with her in Siena and San Gimignano--highly recommend both.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Christian!! Merry Christmas to you and to Samantha!!
Michael GooldrupUnited States
Siena is a very lovely city, not small, but not big. I passed a wonderful morning touring this city with Roberta. Roberta, being Senese, is very knowledgeable about the history, culture, and food. She has a great sense of humor that puts you completely at ease. I very strongly recommend this tour with her.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie 1000, spero di rivederti presto!
Don MoscatoUnited States
This is the second time Roberta has been our guide. First as part of a group tour several years ago and this time (August 2016) with 7 members of our family. Roberta is very knowledgeable and entertaining and above all very sensitive to the specific needs of your group. I would use her services again and highly recommend her if you need a guide.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I adore you, your wife and your family!!! Baci Roberta
Michele CampUnited States

Claudia SansoneUnited States
I just wanted to say how fabulous Roberta was as our tour guide. She made the Contrada and the Cathedral come to life. I will assuredly recommend Tours by Locals. We would have never understood Siena on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Claudia All the best
Carole BaileyUnited States
Roberta was knowledgeable and able to explain history and weave it into the present.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: thank you so much Carole! Have a nice time in Monaco!!
Earl RobicheauxUnited States
Roberta is excellent. With a commanding knowledge of Siena and her personable style, she provides an informative narrative of Siena, its history, art, economics and culture. We thoroughly enjoyed our 3 hours and could easily go back for more.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much Earl!!!
Wayne RitchieOceanside, CA, United States
Roberta, dressed smartly, met us promptly at the appointed place and for the next three hours held our rapt attention as she shared the wonders of Siena. Our group included a jaded traveler who'd been there before, a retired schoolteacher keen on art history, an attorney inquisitive about the social/legal implications of things we saw, two macho young fathers plus 9-year-old twins. Roberta had something to offer everyone, engaged each and customized her route to our interests.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much my dear!!!
