Martino was perfect! He catered to all of the questions of my college-aged daughter (engineer major) and so knowledgeable about any aspect.
He may be the best Context guide ever and we have done many Context yours. He lead us on both Uffizi and Galileo tours. He was super ! Knowledgeable, very interesting, witty, personable. He’s 25 stars. Wow!!! Thank you Context!
Martino was great. There is much to learn in the Galileo museum, and Martino did an excellent job of explaining things to my wife and I. He also was excellent in engaging our 14-year-old grandson. Martino told us at the beginning that his usual practice was to spend most of the time in the Galileo museum but to also walk over to the Santa Croce church, where Galileo, Michelangelo and other Renaissance greats are buried; but when we told him we had already visited the church, he adapted his presentation to spend more time in explaining things to us in the museum itself.
