A wonderful day discovering Florence with Brenda
Marwan_B, May 2023
We had Brenda as our guide. She was very knowledgeable and informative. Her English was perfect. We were picked up at our hotel and started the tour on foot. There were several important spots that she highlighted for us. Our entry into both museums were truly skip the line and we got to beat the crowd. For me the trip had many highlights but certainly David at the Galleria was one but the Uffizi had treasures that one could spend days uncovering. Brenda chose the important historical pieces and was profuse in explaining the details of the era and the artworks.
Elisa was great
William_H, May 2023
Elisa was so informative and personable. The tour was well organized and we enjoyed the Uffizi and the Acedemia. We also found it very helpful to get to explore the city and get a sense of the area for navigating later
Best tour of Firenze!
Dan_B, Jan 2023
Laura was such a knowledgeable and insightful tour guide! We got to see so much in a very efficient and fulfilling pace. The lunch at the local wine bar was a unique experience that gives such insight to the local culture too. Would recommend to my family and friends!
The best tour ever
Jennifer_M, Nov 2022
This was the best tour we have ever experienced. We highly recommend the tour. Our guide was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, and brought the history and artwork of Florence to life for us. We took this tour on our first day of Florence. I cannot thank our guide enough. This tour is a must do.
Completely worth every penny
Tia_S, Sep 2022
Manuela was amazing! We saw more in one day that we would have in a week walking on our own- and the pre arranged tickets and line management help at the museums was priceless. Our guide was so knowledgeable and really made sure we saw everything we wanted to see.
Roslyn_L, Jul 2022
Our tour guide Barbara was FABULOUS!!!! We thoroughly enjoyed our tour!!!! She was knowledgeable, engaging, and fun!!!

Kathy_B, Jul 2022
Our guide Christina was so educated and well prepared! She made the tour special for us! Very personable.
Barbara provided a spectacular experience.
Mark_A, Jun 2022
Our guide was Barbara. She provided a very detailed history details of the art and museum tours as well as the details about Florence. We saw not only the points of interest but many of the back street streets with local artisans and crafts people. The overall experience well exceeded our expectations.
Good art tour
Marcela_L, May 2022
The tour is a very comprehensive walk through the classical art in Florence. The tour is well planned and allowed to see the principal works of art and architecture of the city. Our guide Alfonso is a highly knowledgeable and very trained professional in art and history.
Great tour
Bob_M, Apr 2022
Brian was an excellent host and guide, very knowledgeable, flexible and friendly. We really enjoyed the tour.
Great Tour With A Very Knowledgeable And Articulate Guide
David_F, Apr 2022
Our guide Brian was excellent. He's a graduate art major who was well versed in the art history of the period we were exploring at the museums. He imparted his knowledge of art styles, periods, and approaches with well crafted and articulated stories. While we were reasonable knowledgeable, his expertise filled in the gaps beautifully. He was very flexible with us as were we with him. We had an opportunity to stop in at the Medici Chapel (unscheduled) so we all agreed it would be a waste not to! We enjoyed each other's company so much we hung out after the official tour was over just to shoot the breeze over some wine and food at the Central market.
Wonderful experience
Devvon_H, Nov 2021
Brenda was simply the best. Her knowledge of the city, art and friendliness is unparalleled. A perfect way to begin my vacation in Florence
Would highly recommend
Joanie M, Jul 2019
Definitely worth the private guide Jacamo was an excellent tour guide. So knowledgeable and helped us navigate the museums and the progression of how the artists contributed to each period. We would have never understood the significance of the pieces or understood the subtle nuisances! Sooo much to see in Florence get a rib aye guide. Skipped the lines was huge!! He even took us to the coolest (temp) wise areas to cool off while providing al the incredible pieces of info! Would do again in a heart beat
Response from Host, Dec 2019
Dear Joanie Thank you for your glowing review! We are very happy you liked our tour in Florence and our guide Giacomo!! We hope you’ll be our guest again in the future!!! All the best Elena
Our guide met us in our hotel lobby...
chrystyna z, Mar 2018
Our guide met us in our hotel lobby, super convenient. He was very informative without being too detailed. He held our attention for just the right amount of time and gave us plenty of opportunities to savor our surroundings and take pictures to our heart's content. We requested a change in the itinerary a bit, allowing us to finish in the Uffizi and stay longer, but that turned out to not be really necessary. The biggest advantage to this 6-hour tour was fast admission into Accademia and Uffizi, viewing the most important exhibits, along with strolling by significant landmarks. This could easily have been an 8-hour tour. There is so much to see in Florence.

Therese W, Sep 2017
Giacomo was friendly and engaging right from the start! He was extremely knowledgeable of the history of Florence. He also showed us around the city market which was one of the best food experiences we had while in Florence. I would highly recommend Giacomo as your private guide! Therese

acargianas, Sep 2017
I was expecting a little more from this tour given the price paid. Our tour guide was very polite and knowledgeable about everything although our tour started late and we had to make it to a place we hadn't originally agreed upon. The entire tour lasted about 5 hours. We were just expecting more. We also wanted to see the Duomo but the time in the Uffizi and the Accademia was very enlightening, we learned a lot.
Our guide was amazing. Be ready to...
Conor M, Mar 2017
Our guide was amazing. Be ready to do some serious walking to hit all the points in a day. Giacomo was a walking encyclopedia. One of our favorite places he took us was a place where they hand make perfume and the local market where real people eat. Perfect way to end of vacation.

Craig_M, Jul 2016
Siro was an excellent well educated guide who really did an excellent job in all areas of art, sculpture and history of Florence. I can't say enough good things about our experience. Thank you Siro.
Unvergesslicher Tag in Florenz mit Valentina
Andre_B, Jun 2022
Wir waren mit Valentina Grandi unterwegs und haben uns sehr gut angenommen gefühlt. Sehr informativ mit schier unendlich viel Fachwissen gespickt. Unbedingt zu empfehlen um einen Überblick über die Geschichte und Kunstgeschichte von Florenz zu erlangen. Der gesamte Ablauf und somit der Tag waren perfekt.
