Our guide was very knowledgeable and totally guest-friendly! Loved the tour and would have really loved the hot cocoa if it had not been more than half-full in a plastic glass. Otherwise, very pleased with the coverage of all the highlights.

We had a great time on our Christmas Day Walking Tour with Makela. She was easy to understand and had great stories behind the history of some of the sites we visited. We participated in five tours during our ten days in Italy with three different tour companies and this was our favorite!
