Reviews and feedback

"We hired Demetra for a private (3-person) tour in Florence focusing on Michelangelo's works and his life in the city, and she was perfect. Demetra is personable, charming, and very knowledgeable. We were a very inquisitive group, and there wasn't anything that we asked, whether it involved Michelangelo, other artists, or the city in general, that she could not answer in great detail. Demetra gives tours in Florence and Siena, and we will certainly use her again next time we are in Tuscany."
