Florenzo is an exceptional guy to say the least. Social from the first moment we have bonded a lot, spanning many topics. As a tour guide she is also very prepared and she really knows the wonders of this place, also telling very interesting and particular peculiarities. If I had the time I would do it again to spend hours with him, as his company, his wisdom and his very open and playful personality can only make a day better. He has become a brother to me and I hope that one day we will meet again somewhere else in the world

Wonderful experience! The tour guide Hose spoke on 3 languages to make sure everyone are satisfied and understand. So passionate and driven guy! The whole organization was as described!
