|Daniel and Melanie||A Great Tour! Oct 10 and 11|
We had the privilege of having Costanza as our guide for one and a half days. I found her through a google search on guides of Siena looking for a guide who was local, knowledgeable, spoke good English, and allowed personalized tours. She was all of these and more. I found her very responsive to my emails while planning the tours and very professional. We started with a morning in Siena where she guided throughout the city teaching us the history, culture and taking us to the most important sites. The next day we met in Montalcino where we spent the morning touring the city, then out to the Abbey of St. Antimo where we waited to hear the chants. Afterwards out to lunch at an Agriturismo, then on to two wineries where she arranged for personal wine tastings. It was a full day, but one of more memorable in Tuscany. By the end of our time we felt Costanza was part of group, and wished we could have taken her on the remainder of our adventures! If you are looking for a guide anywhere in Tuscany, I would encourage you to contact Costanza, you will not be sorry!

I will write a little about your day with us on my website, but wanted to thank you so much for giving me a new "insider's" view of Siena. After visiting a few times, I learned a lot and saw more than I had before. We had a great day with you and the lunch that followed at the Trattoria Papei was outsanding.

We had the pleasure of Costanza's company and vast knowledge on two tours in October. We started in Montalcino with a tour of this beautiful town famous for its Brunello wine. We then hiked along a scenic route to the amazing Sant'Antimo monastery. We were impressed with Costanza's knowledge of the local flora and fauna, never mind the historical, cultural, and architectural details of the area.
We also had a tour of Siena. Costanza's love of this city and her enthusiasm for its rich cultural heritage was infectious! Her humor and flexibility made this a perfect day.

Wow, what an incredible day we experienced on our Siena Walking Tour with Costanza. Her appreciation and excitement of the city she loves made the day all the more special for the three of us. Costanza’s knowledge of the art, history and life of Siena, both past and present made our walk very memorable and through her eyes Siena came alive.
If you are wishing a guide to experience Siena, Costanza is the one. She is warm and personable and did a fantastic job of making the tour fit our interest and needs. She was very responsive to our e-mails and all our questions.
Costanza, thank you so much for sharing this extraordinary day in Siena with us. We hope we will have the opportunity to walk more miles with you.
