A great day in Florence!
Amy_T, Sep 2022
Barbara was wonderful! We were only in Florence for a few hours and really just wanted a quick overview of the city and, of course, a chance to see David. We were really pleased with our tour and loved our tour guide, Barbara. She was extremely knowledgeable and kind. We never felt rushed. She was very relaxed and open to questions, and we love that she had a fun sense of humor. If you only have a few hours in Florence, this is the way to go. If you have many days in Florence, I would still recommend this as a good first pass to get to know the city before exploring on your own.

Florence history on steroids
Barbara_M, Sep 2022
Our tour guide, Manuela, was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Florence and the Renaissance artists of that time. We learned so much which was heightened by Manuela’s passion for the city she is so proud of.
A great introduction to Florence.

This tour was very good. We took it the day we arrived. Our guide Christina was very knowledgeable and spoke good English. We covered a lot of territory on both sides of the river. The visit to The David was amazing although pretty crowded. We would recommend this trip.

Great tour of Florence

Walking Tour with David
Agnes_M, Sep 2022
This walking tour is the best way to explore Florence and get oriented. Francesco, our guide, was very knowledgeable, sweet, and kind. During the walking tour, he made sure we got to rest and take short breaks and gave us time to grab water and gelato, which we appreciated on that particularly hot day! He also had a great sense of humor and entertained us with all kinds of delightful and fascinating stories about the city. He spoke about the history of Florence with such enthusiasm and charisma that we could easily visualize the events and scenes from the past. In the three hours with Francesco, we learned so much! Book the tour! And make sure you wear comfortable shoes! I hope you get to walk through the beautiful streets of Florence with Francesco! Grazie mille, Francesco! It was a pleasure to meet you!
Fun Tour!
Kasey_S, Sep 2022
This was a good tour. Brian was very knowledgeable, and we learned a lot from him that we would not have known just walking by and taking pictures. You could also tell that Brian really enjoyed what he was doing. My boyfriend and I would definitely recommend this tour.
Personalized tour
Beth_G, Sep 2022
Francesco was quite knowledgeable about the beautiful city of Florence. He was very accommodating to our needs and answered all our questions. He provided a very personalized experience. The line to see David was quite long and we were so happy to bypass it.
