We arrived in Florence on Monday, August 1st, 2016. It began to rain a couple of hours before our scheduled tour. We waited and fortunately the skies cleared. This was an absolutely brilliant choice.
Our very grateful thanks to our lovely guide Gina. She was wonderful. Good humored, knowledgeable, patient and very competent. Gina made the tour come alive with her little anecdotes, her dramatic revelation of dark secrets and facts that may not be easily googled.
We could not have asked for a better introduction to this beautiful city. We as a family are also indebted to Gina for introducing us to the 3rd Best Gelato in Italy. We are hoping to return so that we may repeat that delicious experience.
Thank you Gina and Viator
We really enjoyed this tour, learning about the darker side of Florence. Our guide Federica was great, lots of fun and very knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
We loved this tour! Our guide Claudia was wonderful, funny, and very imformative. Florence is filled with fascinating stories about the founding families. We loved the gelato stop at the end as well.
Gina was great, so enjoyable, fun, informative and told us many things you would never know of even find reading. Must see at night if you are new to Florence area.

Excellent tour - great way to get to know the history of the city. Our guide Alexia was excellent funny and informative.
Just excellant, nothing more needs to be said.
Walking tour was a brilliant introduction to Florence where we saw the beauty of this city in the evening and was given a download on the complex families of Florence. Tour guide Elisa? was knowledgeable and friendly. Gelato was absolutely delicious and we, certainly, kept in mind of the tour-guide's advice on this Italian's specialty.
Angelo is a great guide, who is knowledgeable, energetic, fun, and a genuine story teller. His grasp on the dark side of Florence is absolute, and when he mixes it with his wit and humour the tour just becomes epic. It was well worth the and the gelato that we got in the end was the cherry on the cake. We went to the gelato place every night after that.
I would recommend this tour to anyone who does not mind walking for two hours and then enjoying a nice gelato.
So much fun! Learned so much about Florence and our guide, Angelo, was so entertaining and fun. We loved learning about the lesser known aspects of Florentine life. Wouldn't miss this one!
