Everything was great. This is a tour for people who want that deeper dive into Florence, Italy, science and religion.
How very lucky we were to have Martino as our guide! He’s absolutely brilliant, yet perfectly capable of explaining technical information to high school students and those who have no background in the history of science. He was our first tour guide in our two weeks in Italy, and he set the bar immeasurably high. I can’t praise him enough.
Martino was very knowledgeable and personable. He adapted the tour to our speed and interests, while remaining on point.
