We had great fun on this tour. The woman giving the tour was very kind and passionate. Learned a lot about this city that I would have missed otherwise. Also listening through the airplug through the microphone helped a lot in still hearing the guide regardless of the noise in the crowded areas.

Our guide Giulio was awesome! Very informative and entertaining tour. Within 2 hours you not only see the highlights of the City, but also better understand its history and Italian importance. Can definitely recommend it!

Very informative and entertaining. We were lucky and there were only two of us, so we got the benefit of a private tour. Our guide Giacomo had profound knowledge and was able to convey it in an interesting way.

The city tour lead by Ilaria was pleasant and extremely useful to have a guided overview of such a rich and opulent historical city as Florence. I strongly recommend the tour for first time visitors.

Awesome Tourguide. Many really interesting historical informations!! Would do it again.
