Good tour that took us to places we otherwise would not have seen or known about.
this was a really good tour by someone who lives and breathes Florentine history. We did this tour on day one, and it gave us the perfect introduction to the city, and helped us to orientate ourselves ready for the rest of the stay. Highly recommended for anyone just arrived in Florence.
A great orientation tour of the city. Our guide Irena was knowledgeable and passionate the city and shared many great tips with us (shopping, restaurants, etc) throughout the day. Perfect tour to take at the start of your trip to Florence!
This tour was definitely worth doing. It gave us some inside information that by just walking around on your own you wouldn't get. Guilia was a great tour guide and we really appreciated her knowledge!
Very good way to start a visit to Florence. Angela gave us a lot of information and made it an interesting morning. Highly recommended for first time visitors to this beautiful city!
Our guide Ilaria Bonfante was excellent. She made the history, architecture and art of this beautiful city come alive. Highly recommended!
Excellent for the start of the exploring city. We received lots of information. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. It helped us to create plans for further visits.
Very enjoyable. I would recommend making this your first tour in florence. You really get to learn about the city and see everything there is to see, and the following day, or later in the day, you can visit the sites that you enjoyed. (Tour does not go into any of the buildings, except one church, which may not have even been officially part of the tour).
I wish we would have done this tour earlier in our stay in Florence. Our guide had great stories and pointed out areas to go back to after the tour. She also took us down some of the streets we would have missed otherwise. Fortunately we were in Florence for 3 weeks and were able to go back to those areas.She was also right that the best gelato was the little shop across from the Pitti Palace. Don't pass up this tour.
One of the most knowledgeable and helpful tour guides possible.
