Our guide was Martina, who was a fun, engaging, energetic, knowledgeable guide. We brought our 4 year old son, which we were a bit nervous about. We were only in Florence for one night, so we wanted to learn as much as we could and chose the full day tour. Our son fell madly in love with Martina as she enthralled him with stories of Florence, he still talks about 'David' because of how explained the sculpture to him. We too were kept on our toes the entire day. We loved every minute and recommended Martina right away to friends of ours who are in Florence now. Thank you Martina, we will never forget you!.
