Stella is an amazing guide!!! We all appreciated her intimate knowledge of the Palio and she made that part of our trip so much more informative.
Having a resident of Siena do a Palio tour was excellent. She brought the history to life. Personable and fun. The two youngest girls on our tour (6 & 10) were overheard talking about the Palio in surprising detail after we returned to our villa. Showing the short videos of the race made it come alive for adult & kids. The archives were a treat too. The other family (our friends) had never done a Context tour and were very impressed. Even won over the 14 year old who was not that interested at the outset. She loved it!
Wess was our guide and he was fabulous. We had our 7 and 10 year old children and they were fully engaged and loved his tour. He taught them so much about the Palio they said the tour was one of their favorite things on our trip. He took us on a secret route the kids loved. He also was so kind we all enjoyed talking to him and asking questions.
