Hi! I'm Sergio. I've been a tour guide for 5 years, but I still feel like every tour is like my first one. I believe a walking tour is not only about dates or names of buildings and statues, but about discovering what these places tell us about the history and culture of a city, so as a guide this is what I like to study and share with tourists. My tours are a mixture of facts and anecdotes to make you learn and enjoy yourself at the same time.
