    Great walking tour experience

    We had a great time on this tour. We started at the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore, which is one of the most impressive religious buildings in Florence. We then walked around Piazza Della Signoria, which is beautiful and full of history. After that, we went to Pitti Palace, which is an incredible building with amazing architecture and art inside.

    Florence trip was the best trip in the recent years of my life

    Our recent trip to Florence was truly enriched by the expertise and warmth of our guide, who guided us through two exceptional tours: 2.5-hour exploration of Accademia/Uffizi. With a diverse family group of seven adults and three children, our guide skillfully engaged with each of us, making the experience thrilling for all. Our guide's profound knowledge of Florence's history and ability to convey it in an engaging and understandable manner left us captivated. Their interactions with the children were intentional and delightful, adding immense value to our journey. After spending two days with our guide, we departed feeling not only enlightened but also as if we had gained a cherished friend. Their willingness to share insider tips, including the best gelato spots in Florence, further exemplified their dedication to ensuring our experience was unforgettable. Without a doubt, we wholeheartedly recommend our guide to anyone seeking a memorable and insightful exploration of Florence. Our family trip was undoubtedly enriched by their guidance, and we eagerly anticipate the opportunity to explore this fascinating city further with them by our side.

    Worth the Suggestion

    I booked this tour on the suggestion of a friend who recently did this with tourhq and trust me at first i was skeptical but I wasn't let down. Our guide truly was a fountain of knowledge about the city and possesses a pleasant and friendly demeanor. Thanks to her, my time in Venice was truly enhanced, and I had an absolutely fantastic experience
