Meet Our Guides: Martina

Our Walkabout Florence tour leaders are a major part of the success of our organised excursions. Their generosity of spirit is matched by a deep understanding of their subject and a genuine passion for sharing the fun and adventure of all things Italy! In this post we’d like to introduce you to Martina.

Martina says her life as a tour guide was something that “just had to happen”. With a deep love of travel, a background in natural science and oenology (wine and wine making) and a passion for the great outdoors, we’d have to agree!

Martina’s love of travel has provided her with many inspirational experiences, and it is her genuine enjoyment of sharing the knowledge and passion she has for her own country and culture that endears her to clients on her tours. She knows she’s making dreams come true for so many people and sharing their excitement and joy is one of her favourite parts of the job.

A licenced sommelier and nature hiking guide, Martina’s skills are put to excellent use on Walkabout Florence’s unique range of tours. You really couldn’t be in better hands on our Chianti wine tasting tours, so stick close and you’re sure to learn a thing or two!

A genuine lover of people, Martina says her most memorable and heart-warming moments come when her guests say that one of her tours has been the highlight of their trip to Italy.

“Being a guide is the perfect way to combine my interest for different cultures, being outdoors and making people happy.”

Among her many good traits is Martina’s ability to keep a cool head, and with her tales from the tours encompassing everything from missing teeth to lost ladies on the Cinque Terre, in her eights years of tour guiding it’s been tested well!
