    The history was extremely...
    Sara_W, Mar 2023
    The history was extremely interesting. We did this tour at the start of our trip and it was a great way to get to know the city a little bit. Loved our tour guide, but I can't remember her name.
    Florence at Night!! Perfect!
    roslyntorella, Mar 2023
    We loved this tour and fell in love with Florence as a result. We learned a lot about her history and culture. We had been on a tour and had tours in several other Italian cities - this one was by far the best!
    So much fun
    Cecilie_L, Mar 2023
    It was very interesting and exciting to get to know something about the city. Since the end of the tour, me and my friend have been talking about how fun it was. The historical part as well as the ghost stories - it gives you a better understanding and experience of the city. Thank you very much! We enjoyed it
    Florence mystery tour
    Robert_A, Mar 2023
    Enjoyed the tour. Jackimo took us to some areas I wouldn’t have known about otherwise and told some very interesting stories. Good way to learn some Florentine history and discover some new parts of the city
    Good tour to ease you into the evening exploring
    Loven_C, Mar 2023
    A short and sweet late evening tour to get to know the city. It covers some shady pasts of the city, local legends and of course - the infamous - The Monster of Florence. I have read the book by Douglas Preston & Lincoln child as a kid so great this was covered. Antonio is a great tour guide. Highly recommend. The tour is perfect for couples..I was the solo one in my group of all couples. It felt awkward at times but was probably just me. Calm nights in Florence is amazing by the Arno, even though cold.
    Book this!

    Angela was such a good guide, two hours flew by with her stories. Would definitely recommend to the fellow traveler
    A fantastic night stroll of Florence!
    Catalina_P, Jan 2023
    Angela was our tour guide and she was a fantastic storyteller! The stories she shared at each stop were not just gripping, but also informative! We really enjoyed learning more about Florence outside of what is just taught in a classroom or a regular tour. Outside of the regular tour stories while walking from stop to stop, Angela answered a lot of our questions about the city, its monuments, and history. I would recommend this tour to anyone wanting to have a fun night stroll of Florence!
    Dylan_G, Jan 2023
    It was a great experience doing this tour at night. It really brought to life the alternative history of the town which isn't part of the typical tours.
    It was good, if you want...
    Ildiko_D, Jan 2023
    It was good, if you want to know Florence more, this is a very good opportunity. I really recommend the program. We didn’t have a good weather, it was raining and the wind was very cold. You need weatherproof clothes and comfortable shoes.
    Great tour of the stories of Florence you dont read about.
    Adrein_L, Jan 2023
    Was a very informative tour about the Medici’s and other persons and events of interest. It ended up near the Arno where we learned about a terrorist attack in Florence and about the Florence serial killer.

    Marie_H, Oct 2022
    So much fun to walk in the dark and listen to the stories. The guide was informative and entertaining.
    Really awesome. Can’t find these historical details in a textbook :)
    Allan_N, Oct 2022
    This was a incredibly informative, and our tour guide did a great job of really bringing to life the history of the city that you wouldn’t easily find in a travel brochure, or a textbook. I love learning about all the details that really help you to understand and experience what it was like for people living in the city throughout history.

    Chiara was very informative, entertaining and attentive. High light of the trip, a great night time activity with lots of fun sights
    Great experience!
    Mark_I, Sep 2022
    Great guide and unique stories. A great way to see more of the city, beyond the usual sights and landmarks.
    A fabulous evening of legend, history and spooks
    Adam_S, Sep 2022
    Excellent tour, perfect balance of myth, legend, ghost story and history. As a ghost walker myself, I enjoyed Chiara's style and delivery, it was well paced, regularly changing the nature and mood of the content to keep the crowd's attention. An evening well spent.
