we did this tour in October and really enjoyed it. The group was around 17 of us but we were all given ear buds and receivers so we could clearly hear our guide. We walked quite a bit but certainly manageable to any able bodied person. Not a good tour for those who have difficulties walking.
I loved how our guide was informative and helpful and open to questions. Her recommendations of places to visit, eat and tour on our own afterwards was also a treat.
The gelato stop was a nice treat but long lines.
This was my first Viator experience and won't be my last.
Loved learning about the history of Florence, and our tour guide knew an awful lot about it. I'll be looking for Viator tours the next time I'm travelling abroad.
Very good tour and guide was understandable and informative. Lots of walking but most enjoyable.
Our guide was so friendly and informative. The walk was quite easy to do. I would do this one again.
Valentina delivered a very relaxed and friendly tour. It was just right.
Our tour guide Marzia was excellent! Very upbeat and informative. We really enjoyed the tour and it added a lot of color to our Florence experience.
Valentino did a great job navigating the group through Florence. She gave us a lot of details on the city. It also doesn and #39;t hurt that she took us to a great Gelato place half way through. I recommend this tour and the lemon cream flavor gelato.
A good tour, and a good way to get oriented around Florence, Ivana was very knowledgeable.
Our tour guide was very good. The tour took us all over Florence. It gave us a good start for the rest of the day on our own.
We ended up being small group of 5. Guided by Valentina who was brilliant and really gave an insight into wonderful Florence. We stopped for a quick gelato break near the Pitti Palace. Would definately recommend. As I did this tour the morning after arriving it helps you orientate self and plan the rest if your stay. Do book any tickets to the Ufizi gallery and accademia museum well in advance. It's pretty difficult to just turn up and expect hours of waiting to get in if you take the chance.
Caterina was fabulous! Her insights and tips were invaluable. Her passion for architecture and history made the tour unforgettable. Kudos to her for making our Firenzie visit even more special!

Good tour that took us to places we otherwise would not have seen or known about.
this was a really good tour by someone who lives and breathes Florentine history. We did this tour on day one, and it gave us the perfect introduction to the city, and helped us to orientate ourselves ready for the rest of the stay. Highly recommended for anyone just arrived in Florence.
A great orientation tour of the city. Our guide Irena was knowledgeable and passionate the city and shared many great tips with us (shopping, restaurants, etc) throughout the day. Perfect tour to take at the start of your trip to Florence!
This tour was definitely worth doing. It gave us some inside information that by just walking around on your own you wouldn't get. Guilia was a great tour guide and we really appreciated her knowledge!
Very good way to start a visit to Florence. Angela gave us a lot of information and made it an interesting morning. Highly recommended for first time visitors to this beautiful city!
Our guide Ilaria Bonfante was excellent. She made the history, architecture and art of this beautiful city come alive. Highly recommended!
Excellent for the start of the exploring city. We received lots of information. The guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. It helped us to create plans for further visits.
Very enjoyable. I would recommend making this your first tour in florence. You really get to learn about the city and see everything there is to see, and the following day, or later in the day, you can visit the sites that you enjoyed. (Tour does not go into any of the buildings, except one church, which may not have even been officially part of the tour).
I wish we would have done this tour earlier in our stay in Florence. Our guide had great stories and pointed out areas to go back to after the tour. She also took us down some of the streets we would have missed otherwise. Fortunately we were in Florence for 3 weeks and were able to go back to those areas.She was also right that the best gelato was the little shop across from the Pitti Palace. Don't pass up this tour.
What a fantastic tour, thanks to our amazing tour guide Eliza. Florence is a beautiful city with so much culture, the very best way to explore it is on a tour like this. We discovered so much about the city which we never would have known from simply exploring on our own. Highly recommended!
