    This was a fabulous way to understand Florence's history and get to know the city. The only negative was the tour people were not dressed according to what we were told not did they identify themselves which caused some confusion.

    Our tour guide was incredibly knowledge about the history of Florence. Each monument and the background was provided in detail. She seemed to have a real passion for Florence's history which is infectious. The only recommendation would that it would be great to be able to walk and talk more, as it was a chilly day and standing in a spot made me feel more cold.

    Waste of precious vacation time and money.
    Was a total of 10 people.
    6 French speaking and 4 English.

    The guide struggled with both languages and spent 70% with French folk and 30 with us English.
    The guide had trouble with both languages, but mostly with the english language. Trouble communicating about the subject matter.
    A refund should made!

    Excellent tour. Guide was informative.

  • 26-Sep-2017

    It was very informative however, the guide was boring to listen too. She did not make it very exciting. Following I had no idea it they were going to speak in Spanish and English which made the tour even longer than it needed to be.

    Relaxed small group tour - conducted in both French and English. This did present some challenges - particularly hanging around in quite crowded areas while the guide switched between languages. However, she was very informative and worked hard to keep us engaged. I would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to start their Florence experience with an introduction to the main parts of the city or like me anyone with only a limited amount of time to look around.
