    Our tour guide with the green umbrella was organised, professional, knowledgeable, and helpful. Sometimes, however, the information was a bit too detailed and not useful. The tour could have been shorter to be more enjoyable. An hour may have been enough since the audience had to stand up the whole time.

    I really enjoyed the walking tour with Silvia. She was very informative, friendly and funny. We learned some interesting facts about Florence, Medici family and well-known artists such as Brunelleschi and also got some great tips for food and drinks from Silvia over the WhatsApp. This walking tour is a definite must! (:
