Cristina was great!
Brandon_C, Sep 2023
Cristina was amazing! Very knowledgeable and entertaining. She tailored the tour to our interests. We would certainly seek our this tour again and recommend it to anyone who wants a great overview of all things Florence.
The highlight of our trip to Florence!
Rob_U, Sep 2023
Our tour with Dina exceeded our expectaitons. She was perfectly lovely and ever so knowledgeable. She communicated very well, was personable, and taught us a lot about the history of Florence in a short time. We were so pleased with her recommendations for things to do in the area. We ate at two of the dining establishments that she pointed us toward and could not have been happier with our meals.
A great introduction to Florence
Alec_H, Jul 2023
We loved the tour. Victoria is very knowledgeable about all things Florence, art especially. She made the city come alive with history, recounting stories that gave context to the magnificent architecture like the duomo and baptistery, but also plain looking buildings we would have walk past without knowing that Michelangelo or the Medici family lived there. It was a great day and I would recommend to anyone new to Florence.
Florence by train

Marco was a fantastic guide. Showed us all of the obvious places in Florence. Then showed us some of the off the beaten path places to see. Took us to the best mom & pop gelato place.
Very glad we did the private tour.

Omar was great. He explained many subtle aspects of the sites and history and also showed us some back streets we used to avoid the crowds.
Ultimate Walking Tour of Florence

Alessandra tailored our morning to our interests and as a local and historian and artist and lover of her country is extremely knowledgeable about all things Florence!
The way to start a vacation in Florence!

Giulia was an excellent tour guide! The meeting place couldn’t have been easier to find and Giulia was waiting on us when we arrived. She was sure to tailor our tour to our needs. We have one in our group that needs to take things a little slower due to some physical limitations and Giulia was very accommodating. She thoroughly answered all our questions and gave us some great tips on where to find the best restaurants and gelato. She was extremely knowledgeable about aspect of Florence. There wasn’t a detail about a church, statue, or museum she couldn’t answer. We love the personal touch these private tours provide and Giulia made this one very memorable. I highly recommend this tour.
Hidden gems tour!

Our tour guide was Zeynep and she did a FABULOUS job showing us around Florence! Her passion for the city is undeniable and it came through as we explored the city. This tour is excellent and I highly recommend. She took us to several very unique spots we’d have otherwise walked right past. Wow, just wow. We are grateful to have seen Florence through her eyes!
Loved our tour!

Florence hidden gems tour
AnnMarie_M, Sep 2022
Walking thru the alleys of Florence, to see some hidden places of interest. Our tour guide, Ciara, was both charming and extremely knowledgeable. For a break, she took us to a delightful spot for a glass of wine and a delicious sandwich, as well. The 3 hours flew by and we felt like we had made a friend in Florence, which was the best part!
My favorite place!
Paula_B, Sep 2022

maribeldpm, Aug 2022
Daniela was a phenomenal guide! She was friendly, knowledgeable and took us on a perfect tour. She was also very detailed and energetic. Highly recommend this tour, request Daniela if you can.
Having a private guide...
Stephanie_S, Aug 2022
Having a private guide made a huge difference. We were able to tailor the tour to our interests as well as cover ground more quickly.
This tour was a private...
Scott_M, Jul 2022
This tour was a private tour with only our 5 family members participating and it was excellent! We were not part of a large group with hearing devices to hear the guide. It was more personable and easy to communicate with our guide. We were showed and told of many things we would have missed in a larger group tour. Thank you to our guide Martina! She was excellent!
Great insight to the history of aristocracy in Florence
amanda_m, Jun 2022
Our guide Allisandra was very friendly and easy to understand. She had a wealth of information to share with us which gave us a greater understanding about Florence and it’s historical past. We enjoyed her company and would recommend this tour and guide.
