5 stars. Anita who guided us from hotel in Rome, whole Florence and back to Rome was a friendly, flexible and professional guide. She is a lawyer but does this work for the love of Italy. Giovanni who guided us in Academy was also excellent. His explanation of David was quite impressive. Driver Adam was friendly and professional. Strongly recommend Anita for families with children and child-like husband.

It’s excellent trip. Well organized with best memories. I suggest that they have a contact number to the leader of group in the event of emergency or to creat a group on WhatsApp temporarily made to communicate if one was lost for meeting points for example. Thanks.

It was a wonderful excursion. Our guide Madame Najma and our driver Monsieur Marco are very kind and helpful. I highly recommend.
