We are an association composed by ninety guides with decades of experience, combined with the deep love for Siena and its surroundings: in the course of our guided tours we will tell you the history, the traditions and the secrets of this unique territory.
All our tour-guides offer professional and versatile services. In addition to the authorization granted by the Regione Toscana, our operators can pride themselves of specialisations indispensable to better understand the natural and cultural context in which the over 50 tours we offer take place: from art-history, to Archaeology, from wine tourism to religious tourism, without forgetting our environmental excursions through the woods and rolling hills of the Chianti area, in paths that reconcile history and culture with the wonderful Tuscan panoramas. Our guided tours are available in sixteen languages: Italian, English, French, German, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguese, Japanese, Russian, Czech, Romanian, Polish, Hungarian, Swedish, Danish and Norwegian.
Our tours are for individuals, families, groups, cultural and religious associations, schools, travel agencies and tour operators. We also organize private tours exclusively for you or your group. All our tours are flexible and adaptable to your needs.
In addition to the tours and trekkings in the province of Siena, we also book guided tours throughout Tuscany: our guides, also qualified in other provinces, will assist you throughout your stay in this beautiful region.
Our Association is sponsored by the City of Siena and by the City of San Gimignano: we can also boast prestigious collaborations with the town of Colle Val d’Elsa, the Sienese Museum Foundation, Palazzo Chigi Saracini, the FAI Fondo Ambiente Italiano (Italian National Trust), the Italian Touring Club and Agriturist. Given the large number of environmental and nature trekking tours organized, the Centro Guide is also a supporting member of the Italian Association for Environmental and Excursions Guides (AIGAE).
