This tour was one of the highlights of our time in Italy. Barbara our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, a great sense of humour and also very passionate about Florence. We thoroughly enjoyed our three hours with her and would not hesitate to recommend her to any interested visitors.
we had a wonderful tour of florence. unfortunately for us we did not realize the morning traffic would be so congested so we were late to meet our guide. she was most gracious and knowledgeable. we had a member of our group who needed to see a doctor and she took care of that also by bringing us to the doctor's office after our tour was done. so in addition to seeing the ponte vecchio, david and the other amazing sights we were so well treated that i would highly recommend this experience.
If I could, I would give Brenda six stars - she was amazing! She met us at our hotel and, being a native of Florence, she was able to take us on a fantastic and informative tour throughout one of my favorite cities in the world. Being that she had relatives in the USA, her english was perfect and she did a wonderful job of making everything about the city understandable and accessible to us.Also, being that she graduated with an art history degree, she was the perfect candidate to walk us through the Renaissance in the footsteps of the masters. Our time on the tour while long over three hours seemed far too brief when it was time to say goodbye to our guide. In that time, we covered all of the high spots in the city Il Duomo, David, etc., and also, many out of the way details that would not be noted by the average visitor. Some of the backstory and facts around the sites gave a great perspective and context as we went through Florence - having a private guide really made a difference. She even made it a point to recommend other sites and restaurants around the town, taking our map and indicating the location of all the spots for our reference later. Brenda made a beautiful city even more wonderful, and I would definitely repeat, although I've already been to Florence. This tour is highly recommended, especially with the right guide. Thank you Brenda!
Our tour guide was just brilliant without him I would have the place ten times round and still have no substance about Florence, now I am Florentine. Great personality and it could not have been more private than the one we had. The quick way to explore Florence with a purpose.
Siro met us at our hotel promptly and led us through the city and it's history. We did not go into the Duomo because we should have been dressed appropriately - maybe he could have reminded us before we left? He recommended a really good restaurant for dinner, and a place to have refreshments. We enjoyed his company and would say this is definitely the way to go. I can't be a part of a big group tour.
Lara was a wonderful tour guide! She was very knowledgeable about Florence. Although you can certainly not learn all there is to know about Florence in one day, Laura was able to give us a very in-depth yet easy to understand tour that helped us to appreciate the vast history in Florence. We thought she did a wonderful job of describing the history, architecture and culture of the city. Our discussions were very philosophical and we felt like we were in an extremely engaging college class. She was able to answer any questions we had and would alter her tour in order to accommodate us. She even recommended the best leather store in Florence were we got amazing gifts for our family and friends. The tour was very well-paced and hit all of the major sites we hoped to see. She really made our time in Florence unforgettable and we would absolutely recommend her to anyone visiting Florence!
I was impressed that we had the owner of the tour Co. meet us on time at our Airbnb location. She was very accommodating with all of our questions all throughout the tour. Since she had been born in Florence her knowledge of the city was flawless as was her English. It was a wonderful morning and we were all well informed. We were sad when our time was up as we had gained a friend. I would go with her again.
The tour guide was waiting for us as arranged with the Agent, a good start. She was a local to the city and knew all the small streets and minor points of interest. There was no question which she did not answer with a depth of knowledge far beyond what we expected. The whistle stop tour lasted 3 hours. This was by far too short for the breath and depth of the attractions in Florence. The smallest detail of any of the buildings was explained and gave a real view into the lives of all the icons of history which lived and died in Florence.
We had to curtail the things we wanted to do i.e. going up the dome, this was just so that we didn't waste a lot of time climbing up and down.
My recommendation would be to definitely take the tour and then go back to the sites which take more time to complete.
An excellent tour, our tour guide, was incredibly knowledgeable, and was lovely to spend time with. We gained many insights on the city of Florence and its history. Would highly recommend this tour.
