Martino was very knowledgeable and personable. He adapted the tour to our speed and interests, while remaining on point.
Really enjoyed Martino and his tour. He’s got a great sense of humor to go along with his knowledge of Galileo and Florence. Really enjoyed the museum but especially loved the visit to Santa Croce, which was a big WOW. Great tour and guide!
We loved the knowledge & humor of Martino to enrich the story of Galileo's life. I love the intersection of faith/theology/religion and culture and politics because they are inseparable and inform and affect one another. Fascinating tour. A little disappointed that we didn't get into the church to see Galileo's tomb. Altogether a wonderful tour.
