What You Can Expect
Klas was fabulous! He was everything you would want in a tour guide: informed, enthusiastic, and a great storyteller. If you are looking for a tour that takes you a bit off the beaten track, with a guide that will keep you thoroughly entertained, you've come to the right place. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this tour, or to take another with Klas. Fabulous, fabulous, fabulous.
This tour was the reason we would come back to Florence. We were introduced to a fuller sense of history and parts of the city we would otherwise never have seen. Our guide was highly knowledgable, insightful and enthusiastic. We should have done this tour on our first day!
This tour is absolutely fantastic - would 100% recommend to all visiting Florence!!!
I took the tour in October 2014 with my mum - a bit of an alternative tour choice for a mother/daughter holiday, but I wanted do to something that would tell us about the "real Florence" and this certainly didn't disappoint.
Our tour guide (whose name I sadly don't have) was absolutely brilliant - incredibly enthusiastic, friendly and knowledgeable on the history of Florence, the Renaissance period and was able to answer any and every question guests on the tour asked.
The facts were fascinating and you explore loads of places you wouldn't normally come across on standard tours/in guide books.
The tour was one of the best days of our trip to Florence!
I really recommend this tour to all visitors when in Florence (18+ONLY, Given the Sensitivity of the Tour Content)... The guide (Antonia) gets into the unknown and intimate details of the city as well as the true stories of the most powerful families and icons at that time. The Medici Family, The Riccardi Family, and the one and only: Leonardo Da Vinci. This tour gives you an insight that only an Italian-Historian can offer and NO Visitor could ever know about all these stories, unless he/she is able to take this kind of tour. Without a doubt, this tour is very enhancing and informative....Job Well-Done :)
This tour was amazing!
Book this walking tour if you are a history lover. Corinna is an exceptional guide. My wife and I are frequent visitors to the city. We just can't get enough of the fabulous art collections in the Florence museums. But this walking tour is really something else. Corinna makes Renaissance people, artists, noblemen and ordinary folk, come alive in historically accurate anecdotes and cool petty facts. It was a real privilege to have you as our personal guide, Corinna.
Out of the five tours we booked through Viator during our two week stay in Italy, this was perhaps our least favorite. The subject matter was interesting and we were fully prepared and fine with its R-rated nature. But we felt it could have been presented in a more organized fashion. Overall, a bit confusing and exhausting. By the way, we were the only attendees of this tour, so perhaps it needs to be retooled a bit.
Beware!!!! This tour is really about Renaissance SEX AND DRUGS once you get on site. The write up on Viator does not tell you any of this and the your can be quite inappropriate if you have younger teens with you or sensitives in your group. They should be honest about the topic!!!!!!
