Had a lovely time on our guided walk. Francesco was so knowledgable and friendly, able to answer all questions and provide many interesting stories. It was just the two of us on the tour but Francesco made it very engaging and was very easy to talk to. Would highly recommend it.

We had a great tour with a great guide. Anastasia was a mature student from a Cambridge college and she was fun and informative. The walking part is not too rigorous and you’re still able to see and learn plenty. We particularly enjoyed the history around the discovery of DNA.
