Our guide "Angelo" was great. Very knowledgeable, kind, and funny too. I think this trip would be best early in the trip to give you a historical overview of the city of Florence if you have never been.

We thoroughly enjoyed the tour walking through the mysterious alleys and streets of Florence. What made it even more interesting was our guide Mr. Angello with his amazing knowledge of the subject and his great sense of humour. Wish we had more time in Florence, would have loved to do another tour with Angello.
We loved the city and look forward to visiting again.

Loved the tales and walk down streets we would not have chosen otherwise. Our guide Helma was a great storyteller.

Michele (how he told us it was spelled, though he pronounced it Me-kel) was excellent. One of the "ideas" of the tour is to emulate the famous "Jack the Ripper" evening walking tours in London, and Michele did his best to do that. Of course, the Medicis killed lots more people than Jack ever did, but they did it in pre-sensationalist-newspaper days and so there were no gory stories and hype written anywhere that could be preserved (though I'm sure the rumor-mill of the day did much the same). Fortunately, after mentioning the deaths (and their usual politically complicated contexts), Michele moved right on to explain the city and its sights, and the little peculiarities -- 15-story towers in pre-elevator days, little "wine windows" -- that make it so interesting. And the 2.5-hour tour ended with a stop for excellent gelato (included in the price!) where we got to sit and speak with Michele for a while and learn what it is like to live in Florence (a difficult place economically).

Excellent and most enjoyable. I believe our guide was Gary(?) and again he was most informed and enjoyable to spent the evening with.

The guide was great and we went to areas not covered in the tourist guide which were residential areas South of the Academia Bridge. I have to say that the nightime gondola ride was one of the most romantic settings I've experienced. Great Tours, and thank you very much!!

Dark Heart was the company who ran this 2 1/2 hour walk. The guide was very knowledgeable and engaging. Talked about the buildings and pre- and post-Rennaissance history of Florence. I'd definitely recommend the tour and the company.

The tour was very good. Our tour guide was very animated and very nice. It mixed a lot of history with architecture and interesting stories of the families that lived in Florence during the Renaissance. The tour ended with a stop with free gelato which my kids loved. I gave it 4 starts because at times it was difficult to hear and sometimes I lost interest but I was also very tired having traveled all day to Florence. I would do it again because the sights at night were gorgeous.

Our tour guide was evocative and a storyteller who gave a very look at Florence. We enjoyed his explanations and recommend this night tour of Florence.

The tour guide was lovely but I didn't find this as interesting as I expected. I had hoped for more information and historical facts including the Ponte Vecchio history.
