We enjoyed our tour of Florence. Learned a lot of things that we would not have picked up on our own. Great way to start our trip.

Florence is beautiful and our tour guide showed us all the main places to visit as well as good information about the best places to eat and must go back areas. After tour we revisited suggested places and was not dissapointed.

Florence for beginners
Justine_P, Jul 2019
We enjoyed the tour but didn't feel we learned enough and the IT didn't work very well. A more leisurely pace with more general information about Florence would certainly have made the tour better for us.
Pleasant guide
Marko_S, May 2019
Very pleasant guide tour. Time is passing quick, so should be a bit longer tour. However very satisfied with Firenza. Hope will come again.

Even in drizzling rain in Venice, we had an outstanding walking tour. Claudio was excellent with great English and volume. Saw many behind the scenes places, plus highlights. Highly recommended.

It was a wonderful tour. A great way to get an overview of Florence. Our guide was fantastic and was very knowledgeable and answered the additional questions from those in our group.

Riyana K, Aug 2016
Tour guide was super friendly. Very informative and thorough. Her English we very understandable. We saw amazing things in Florence but most importantly enjoyed walking through the lesser used side alleys that open up to more amazing monuments. Highly recommended if you have good shoes and 2.5 hours :P Our tour ended on opposite direction of where it started. However it is so hard to get lost in the city center. Just use the Duomo Cathedral as a landmark and it is easy to navigate We all got free Gelato at the end.

Not as good as our Rome day tour. Could not hear the guide, her English was OK but not great and she did not explain things in a way that was easy to understand

Wonderful 2 hr tour. We had a baby and toddler in two and they made sure we didn't need to stop throughout the tour. Very informative. A perfect overview of the city and our guide was very knowledagble. Highly reccomend.

This was a good way to start our trip to Florence. It got us well oriented, and didn't overwhelm us with information. Our guide didn't seem very interested, however.

Michaela P, May 2015
The tour wasn't interesting for us, no fun facts, just formal information. I think Florence has much more to offer then just walking around and telling us facts about buildings and architects. Our guide was nice, but it needs improvements...
Alvise_Z, Dec 2022
Grazie al carisma di Remo abbiamo assaporato storia e curiosità su Firenze. Interessante: consigliato!
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Ciao Alvise, grazie per la recensione! Siamo felici di sapere che il nostro tour le sia piaciuto e faremo sicuramente sapere a Remo che ha apprezzato le sue spiegazioni. Torni presto a Firenze e prenoti un altro dei nostri tour per scoprire ancora di più sulla storia di Firenze! Un caro saluto, Team ACCORD
Rita_P, Nov 2021
Valeria, la guida, è stata molto brava a coinvolgere i partecipanti, rendendo ottima un'esperienza che, altrimenti, sarebbe stata un noioso girovagare con il freddo e la pioggia. E' stata capace, infatti, di far rivivere davanti ai nostri occhi i personaggi che hanno fatto la storia di Firenze, rendendola la città dell'arte per eccellenza che è oggi. Mai noiosa né scontata e senza guardare l'orologio, ha trasmesso la sua passione per l'arte e la storia di questa città, facendomi venire voglia di tornarci per scoprire di più. La ciliegina sulla torta è stata la degustazione del gelato fiorentino. Mi è piaciuto molto il gusto al riso, che non avevo mai provato prima. Consiglio assolutamente questo tour a piedi. Il mio suggerimento è di farlo all'arrivo a Firenze, sia per poter poi tornare per conto proprio nei luoghi visitati, sia per gli spunti che la guida dà su altri luoghi da visitare autonomamente. Alla fine della visita vi renderete conto che il tempo sarà volato e non sentirete nemmeno la stanchezza! Grazie Valeria
Response from Host, Nov 2021
Gentilissima, grazie per la sua recensione. Siamo davvero felici che la sua visita guidata sia stata una esperienza bellissima. Le nostre guide svolgono il loro lavoro con passione e professionalità e Valeria ne è la prova, la informeremo senz'altro di queste sue belle parole. Speriamo di rivederla presto!
