A Recent Review of this tour

We had an amazing day with Sylvia as our tour guide in Florence. We learned so much about the history of the city (but not too much ��), and the meaning behind so much of the art and artchitecture. In addition a to be incredibly knowledable, Sylvia is absolutely delightful. Thank you for a day we will always remember!
