I have been wanting to do this tour for a long time. The girl was very kind, helpful and very well prepared... and above all very patient ❤️. Even my 7 year old enjoyed seeing live places seen the night before in the film! Beautiful! And above all Florence, a wonderful city, we will definitely be back!

Very profound guide with great insider knowledge about what is probably the most mysterious city in the world.

Our guide, Eleanor, was excellent. She is knowledgeable and attentive. She was amazing!
