Did this tour on our first night and it was a great way to see the city in a less hectic and more personal way. We had a terrific tour guide and the walk was easy and went by so quickly. Highly recommend.
Really enjoyed this walk. Perfect length, not too long, but saw and learned a lot. Our guide Angelo told us lots of interesting history and I saw parts of the city I wouldn't have found on my own.
Amazing! A must see, so different from the other tours of Florence. You learn the little bits of history that made this city what it is. Highly recommended!!
PS: The gelato was amazing too!
Fredricka our guide was so enthusiatic and informative. Had a good sense of humor. Really enjoyed the stories and the back street atmosphere for them. Gelato good too. Highly recommemded guide.
Vanessa was an excellent guide and gave us a new perspective on Firenze history!
Angelo was without doubt the finest guide we have ever had. His knowledge and humour made it 2 hours of true entertainment. Could not fault Angelo or the tour in any way.
Nice way to start our visit. Our guide was full of interesting information about Florence. She was able to answer our questions and worked hard to please us.
My flight was diverted from Florence to Bologna and I didn't make it to the tour. I wish I had. I'm sure I would have enjoyed the experience.
Wonderful guide who gave us great insights and comments throughout the walking tour. The tour was on our first night in Florence and it helped give us an overview of Florence.
Really fun and interesting insights, stories, and (likely) urban legends in Florentine history from pre-Rennaissance to WWII. Wonderful night setting - away from the crowds - and through quaint streets and alleys. Finished off with the best gelato we've had yet! A favorite!
This was a wonderful tour. I so enjoyed learning the stories that truly tell about the character of the Florentines. And not only in the medieval ages, but through the present day. I respect that the Florentines are very proud people, and rightfully so. Engaging and wonderful.
Our guide was very good. He had worked at Pompeii and was very knowledgeable from a history perspective which was important to my husband the history buff. Ending the evening with gelato was the perfect ending to a wonderful tour.
This was a delightful tour. Engaging, fun, and a great way to spend the evening strolling through Florence. Would recommend it.
Best tour I have had in Italy. Having only hosted the tour a few times, our guide was animated, well informed and very engaging. She made it come alive and kept us guessing as to what the outcomes would be... at the next stop. The gelato was good too. Take it, you will have fun and learn some interesting things.
This is highly recommended for people of all ages. It doesn't cover a lot of ground, but the tour guide was superb, and his story telling was brilliant, really giving you an idea of how things used to be. As an added bonus, it finishes at the best IMHO gelateria in Florence.
Angelo was the best tour guide I've ever had! Quite funny and entertaining, he walked through the darker history of Florence from the Medici to WW II. Thank you Angelo for making our trip, one we will remember always.
An informative, atmospheric introduction to Florence. The guide really painted a picture of the history and people that shaped the city. Finishing with the most delicious ice cream I've ever tasted was a lovely bonus. Highly recommended.
Great value - tour guide told a fabulous storey linking the buildings to people and events over the ages- well worth two hours
The Medieval times were dark and mysterious, but our tour guide helped us unravel some of the family fights and history in Florence before the Medici. My favorite part was trying the original flavors of Gelato at the Santa Trinita Gelateria.
This was excellent. We got to see some of the out of the way small lanes and back streets, whilst hearing tales of days gone by. Highly recommend this tour, and the gelati at the end was simply the best I've ever had!
