Sally was fantastic! Our kids (aged 11, 7 and 4) loved their city tour with Sally. She was extremely informative and very cleverly built up the historical context of Florence for the kids in a fascinating and exciting way. They were totally engaged and asked loads of questions, which Sally happily and patiently answered! They particularly loved the visual treasure map she gave them asking them to find the clues as we walked around the city. Extremely knowledgeable my husband and I also learnt plenty of new facts about a city we had both visited a long tome ago! Very well done - thank you so much!
This was the first thing we did in Florence and it really helped us to get a feel for the city! Valerie was so knowledgeable and really showed a love for the topic. The entire rest of the time we spent in Florence and even in other cities we remained aware of the symbols and overlooked signs. Our entire group, which ranged from grandparents to kids, left this tour more observant and with lots of new knowledge!
Molly found a way to engage our grandchild knowing what we had seen without going over old ground. Found that quite surprising.
