Very interesting and fun tour. Angelo our guide was very engaging, with perfect English. I expected the gelato at the end to be lame, but was actually one of the best we've had in Italy. We went back there the next day for more.
Angelo who gives this tour is amazing! He is super nice, entertaining and a little bit mysterious -
I really recommend this tour as it gave me a whole new perspective on Florence and its history!
Totally fun, exciting behind the typical areas and very interesting stories
Amazing DARK, FUNNY, AND ADULT, tour. Wonderfully, historical and entertaining.
Oh my gosh! This tour is fantastic! I did this my first night in Florence and what a great introduction to the history of the place. This tour isn't about art or the beauty of Florence but gives you a great guide to the different families of medieval Florence and how the city was constructed. The tour guide is fantastic and has such enthusiasm for the topic, then to top it off you get a gelato at the end from an amazing gelateria. 100 recommend!
Excellent tour, Angelo was a very good guide who really enjoyed telling about the history of Florence
Fantastic! We did this on our first night there and it was a great way to explore an unfamiliar city. If you are a lover of medieval politics like I am, then this tour is definitely for you, but the material is not so arcane that it would leave the other members of your party disinterested. Plus, the gelato at the end is definitely some of the best I have ever had in Italy. Angelo was a spectacular guide to Firenze! :
For the other planners and itinerary leaders out there: the timing of this tour also has a logistical advantage. It starts at 7:45 PM, which gives you plenty of time after the other attractions close to grab dinner. In our case, we got into Florence later in the day, so having something interesting and engaging to do before the day was over definitely helped us to feel as though we had still accomplished something, despite the long day of travel.
This is a great introduction to Florence, well informed genuine guide.
Not too much walking and a gelato to finish!

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.
