Constanza was very pleasant nd knowledgeable and spoke great English. We really enjoyed out tour of Siena and San Gimignano. The only recommendation I would have is that she speak a little louder and be sure her clients can hear her, especially since we were only two people. We did the tour from our base in Montepluciano, so it was a long day, to say the least, and we were quite tired so we cut the tour short by our own choice. But it was a great day and I would recommend Costanza.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard Thanks for your comment, I will make sure to talk louder next time. It was a pleasure meeting you. Best Costanza

Our guide was very knowledgeable, particularly about the contrade of Siena and the upcoming Palio. She also did a great job of adjusting the tour to reflect the fact that it was extremely hot (over 100 degrees F) that day.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Richard, Thank you for your nice words, it was a plesure meeting you, best, Costanza

Excellent tour of San Gimignano. We got to understand the city and taste excellent products from the area. We went up to the top of one of the towers and the sights were amazing. Be ready to walk...
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hello Humberto, thank you so much for the nice words, I am very glad you enjoyed the tour. Best, Costanza

What a lovely, warm, kind soul Costanza is. She was our first introduction to Siena with a group of jet-lagged ladies from the US. We all felt cared for and learned historical facts about Siena. She arranged a fun and wonderful driver for us, Edoardo, and we are so grateful for Costanza and this tour! Four stars.

We arrived in Siena as they were gearing up for the Palio. While we had to leave before the actual event, Costanza was able to share the history, pagentry, and rivalry that make up this event. The highlight of the tour for us was the visit to a museum that is run by one of the contrade. Each contrade takes great pride in its victories and the museum was a perfect example of this. Costanza was a wonderful guide to bring Siena to life.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Steve, thanks a lot, it was very nice to meet you all. Ciao, Costanza
Sandra LynchUnited States
Costanza was a very nice tour guide, but did not make the tour very interesting. She had history and dates regarding Siena, but did not seem to be interested in the lore of the towers, the traditions, the different families, etc. If I wanted church information, dates in history, I could read about them. We were looking more for the inside special things about Siena.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sandra, thanks for your comment, I am sorry to hear that you were not completely satisfied with the tour, I did my best considering also that we had less time than originally planned. I am usually very passionate about the families and special traditions of Siena, so I am sorry to hear that to your opinion I had missed this important part.

Extremely knowledgeable, accomodating, personable. She had a a very thorough knowledge of San Gimingnano. A three hour tour is just enough time and you can spend the rest of your time exploring on your own. She pointed out ifno on the church frescos that the group would never discover on our own.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Mike, thank you for your nice comments, it was nice to meet you and I am glad you enjoyed the tour and the town. All the best to you all, Costanza

We have a wonderful tour with Silvia and she provided the perfect tour for our family in Siena. Her english was superb and she was very familiar with the local sites and prioritized what we needed to see in a short period of time. I would definitely recommend this service as it was very easy to book, they stayed in touch with me, and everything went very smoothly. Thanks again!

I walked Siena with Costanza in early October 2015 and saw many areas that I wouldn't have found on my own. She is extremely knowledgeable and very nice. I very much enjoyed the tour. The highlight, of course, had to be visiting the Duomo wth her where I received what amounted to an undergraduate education from her. I can strongly recommend her as a guide.

The wealth of information Costanza has is amazing,I can't imagine how she remembers all of those dates! I like that with ToursByLocals you get to choose your guide and are able to communicate with them. I emailed Costanza several times before our trip so that when I finally met her it was like meeting an old friend. I highly recommend ToursByLocals and I highly recommend Costanza R as a guide. Thanks again Costanza for our beautiful tour of Siena!
