    Manuela was amazing! We saw more in one day that we would have in a week walking on our own- and the pre arranged tickets and line management help at the museums was priceless. Our guide was so knowledgeable and really made sure we saw everything we wanted to see.

    Our guide was Barbara. She provided a very detailed history details of the art and museum tours as well as the details about Florence. We saw not only the points of interest but many of the back street streets with local artisans and crafts people. The overall experience well exceeded our expectations.

    Wir waren mit Valentina Grandi unterwegs und haben uns sehr gut angenommen gefühlt. Sehr informativ mit schier unendlich viel Fachwissen gespickt. Unbedingt zu empfehlen um einen Überblick über die Geschichte und Kunstgeschichte von Florenz zu erlangen. Der gesamte Ablauf und somit der Tag waren perfekt.

    We only had one full day in Florence so we chose this tour. I can truly say it was a fabulous tour because Barbara made it the perfect day. We got to see everything we wanted to see along with the museums. My husband really dislikes museums and she even kept his interest. Well done Barbara. We stopped for a delicious lunch and she took us to one of her favorite gelato places at the end of the tour. Also, if we needed to stop and rest, she was always open to accommodate us. Honestly, we hated to say goodbye to her because she was so awesome!!! Until we meet again our sweet new friend. ❤️

    The tour is a very comprehensive walk through the classical art in Florence. The tour is well planned and allowed to see the principal works of art and architecture of the city. Our guide Alfonso is a highly knowledgeable and very trained professional in art and history.

    Brian was an excellent host and guide, very knowledgeable, flexible and friendly. We really enjoyed the tour.

  • 04-Apr-2022

    Our guide Brian was excellent. He's a graduate art major who was well versed in the art history of the period we were exploring at the museums. He imparted his knowledge of art styles, periods, and approaches with well crafted and articulated stories. While we were reasonable knowledgeable, his expertise filled in the gaps beautifully. He was very flexible with us as were we with him. We had an opportunity to stop in at the Medici Chapel (unscheduled) so we all agreed it would be a waste not to! We enjoyed each other's company so much we hung out after the official tour was over just to shoot the breeze over some wine and food at the Central market.
