5 star rating: Highly Recommended October 2016

My husband and I are both avid runners so we were very excited to come across this tour on viator. It was excellent! The guide was very knowledgeable and informative about the history of Florence, and had a great sense of humor. He took us around the center of Florence, which included running up to Piazzale Michelangelo with a stop to take in the spectacular morning view of the city. Over the hour, we maintained an average 6.5km/hour pace with multiple stops throughout for information this was a comfortable pace given that the guide was speaking throughout the run. Highly recommended for runners!

Unfortunately my iPad updated overnight and overwrote my alarm and I missed it. All my running friends have asked how it was and I want to go back to Florence so I can get to do it.

Really brilliant tour. Very knowledgeable tour guide. Got to sample a really huge amount of samples from a wide variety of locations. Also included a sit down lunch and of course some gelato. Did 3 food tours in Italy and this was the best!

Wow! I was extremely impressed with how much of the city I was able to see with Marco as my guide. He was so well informed about all the history and the small intricacies of the city. He was able to keep an amazing pace while talking in a clear tone without gasping for breathe. He was extremely friendly and did a great job of making sure he wasn't going too fast. He answered all my questions and was very knowledgable about the current politics that were occurring as well as identifying themes that repeated throughout Italian history. One of the best experiences I've ever had and I HIGHLY recommend that you get up early and do this tour. The city is empty and yours for the taking! Strap up your shoes and hit the road with Marco! You won't regret it!
