Helena was knowledgeable and a good storyteller. The stories were fascinating and a good introduction to Florence. The gelato at the end of the tour was a nice bonus!

Excellent guide who spoke English fluently and clearly. He answered all of our questions. The walk was very interesting especially when we stopped at the home where the Mona Lisa was painted! The evening finished up with the best gelato.
