The guide was absolutely cool, he explained a lot and gave us good tips for the rest of our stay in the city. I highly recommend it. The guide also showed us many small details that we would otherwise have overlooked. However, since the tour starts in the morning, it is still worth going around the city on your own in the evening.

Our guide Chiara was fantastic - her knowledge about the history and kindness made my choice of walking tour with this company absolutely the best of the week! Tipping is not usually my thing but I wanted to bye her a gelato at the end. Thanks! * The individual earphone is a much nicer idea than a loud speaker for a big group (as we find many in downtown)

We had a nice 2+ hours learning about Florence, the Medici family and much more. Unsurprisingly our young kid wasn't interested but walked along and looked at the beautiful buildings. We, the adults, really liked all the history, and quite often drama, behind the buildings and landscape. Highly recommend it as a starter before digging into detail on specific topics/buildings etc.
