This was the best tour (with the best tour guide, Charles) that I have ever taken! The story telling over 3 hours weaving art, history, philosophy and politics was incredible. Thank you Charles and Walks!

Sara was an extremely enthusiastic tour guide. Very proud of her Florentine citizenship, she provided details we wouldn’t have known otherwise. Great tour! We would definitely recommend.

Charles was a great tour guide. I felt as though he was weaving a fact based story and not just reciting facts. You could tell that he was passionate about the subject.
