The Medicis: Walking Tour
- Duration: 2 hours
Thanks much to the tour director, Mirjam of Carrani Tours, for making the tour worth what we spent for. We enjoyed so much and learned a lot more. She is strict and frank. But that helped discipline the whole group. Hence there had been no time wasted. We also felt the concern in every way. She stops the cars when we are crossing. She talks to people blocking our way. She fights for the group if needed. The places we went to are wonderful. And Mirjam was like a highlighter. She pointed out well the things we need to know and she emphasized the beauty of the sites and things we saw.
Giacomo was fantastic and had amazing knowledge of not only the Medici family, but also of art and other aspects of Florence and Renaissance history. He made several excellent recommendations for further excursions off the usual tourist lists and freely gave us some additional time when he saw our interest. He delivered all with a true passion and is a credit to his craft as a tour guide.
Our tour rep,, Clara, was exceptionally patient and knowledgeable. Nothing was too much trouble. We really enjoyed this Italian adventure......
