Amazing city and tour

Florian was amazing, he really knows the history of the city and is not afraid to go over in his details explanation. Makes the tour personal, about what each of us is interested in and expands on that. Recommend, as always, to see the city with a good guide, it really changes the way you approach any city

Our guide was a great fountain of historical information, full of great information, quips, and tidbits of little information not found in history books. She was tremendously patient and accommodating as weather this day was not the greatest. However, she was wonderful and made it all come together. Great Job and Thank You!!!
