Martino was fantastic. He is extremely knowledgeable. The tour was very good and we some many interesting things that we would have otherwise missed. I think the tour would have even been better if we had a deeper knowledge of Dante prior to the tour. I suspect Martino would have been able to get much deeper into Dante’s time in Florence.
Our tour guide, Molly, was so great to work with. She was professional but also personable. She began by taking time to get to know us and understand our already existing knowledge of Dante. She then tailored her tour information to fit our needs/already existing knowledge. WOW! All throughout the tour, she offered insight that was both keen and articulate. She also never had a problem with us asking questions along the way. At the end of the tour, she treated us to coffee and read Dante to us in Italian!! Getting to dive in and discuss the actual text of Dante was the icing on the cake! What a fun and unexpected treat!! Even once the tour was official over, Molly offered us some helpful tips for exploring the rest of the city and ways to further our exploration of Dante while there. All around, Molly was top notch. We would very very much appreciate it if you could let her know how thoroughly we enjoyed her and the tour she provided us with. We were so looking forward to this tour and it was an absolute highlight!
An absolutely excellent tour ( in poor weather conditions! ) All three of us are buying books about Dante ! Brilliant docent.
