I forget her name but she had red hair and she was amazing!! She knew one of our group was very interested in Medici and she made sure to go into depth about the family. She also knew we only had one day in Florence and she made sure to show us as much or the city as she could. The Palace was so beautiful and worth the visit and tour!

Fantastic Medici & Florence Insides

The tour was excellent. Our tour guide, Sigrid Hansen, gave us an amazing experience. Her knowledge about the Medici and many other Florence sites is more than detailed. We learned a lot, even considering that we had visited the city many times before. The private character of the tour gave us the chance to ask many questions and learn a lot. Highly recommended tour from our experience!
