A Recent Review of this tour

Mila was a lovely, energetic, organized, and informative guide. Our group four adults all had an interest in history, art, and culture, but not a great depth of knowledge. Mila's descriptions brought it all together so that during our brief time in Florence every site and piece of artwork had relevance and we were able to appreciate each one in a meaningful way. Mila ushered us through the crowds and was especially considerate of our daughter-in-law who is expecting a baby in 3 months. Thank you, Mila!
