We were a group of 6. It was often difficult to hear her. The tours with other Context guides included a microphone system so we could hear the guide and walk at the same time. So we didn’t stop and stand as often as we did with our guide today. Her time management could be better. We didn’t get to see all of the palace rooms.
Siro managed to take what could have been an overwhelming presentation manageable and understandable to our 9 1/2 year old granddaughter while providing us enough to maintain our interest throughout the tour.
Siro gave us a near perfect tour of the Pilazzo Palace. He introduced himself and asked us enough questions so he was able to tailor the tour exactly to our needs and interests. For example, we decided to leave the gardens out of the tour. He put the history of the building the it's occupants in context before we went through the museum. He lead us through the rooms and picked out the highlights so we weren't exhausted by the overwhelming number of paintings on the walls. He inserted enough of his personal preferences to give us perspective on his comments and allow for a dialogue about the paintings.
