    Christina was excellent So knowledgeable and friendly We really enjoyed our time touring Florence with her.

    Alisa was very friendly and knowledgeable, and took us to several very special places on our walking tour. I would highly recommend!

    We had a wonderful walking tour with Scilla! She was funny, kind and knowledgeable. After taking us to see all of the gorgeous highlights of old Florence, we “skipped the line” and within minutes we were standing in front of David in the Accademia museum. What a treat. I would highly recommend booking with Italian Vista. If you can walk a few kilometres, a walking tour is the way to go. An excellent day!

    Perfect morning tour of Florence. We chose this tour as it was light on museum time and gave the highlights without boring my 16 year old twins.

    Our experience was so-so with our tour of Florence. We had a guide that was pleasant but not friendly. Our tour was supposed to last 3 hours however our guide ended it early without an explanation. I would probably look for another tour if you can find one.

    Unsere Stadtführerin war äußerst sympathisch und hat mit ihrem Wissen Florenz für uns als Tagestouristen greifbar gemacht. Sie sprach fehlerfreies Hochdeutsch und hatte zudem einen kunstgeschichtlichen Abschluss. Eines dieser Ausgaben die man im Urlaub sehr gerne tätigt. Immer wieder gerne - vollumfängliche Empfehlung für all die, die noch zweifeln sollten: macht das!!

    Laura was a great tour guide. She picked us up at our hotel and then we walked all around Florence seeing different things. This tour is jammed packed with information. After the tour, we used our knowledge to spot different family crests or just understood why things were on the side of the building. Laura was very knowledgeable and she really understood art. When we got to see the David she was very enthusiastic and really showed us alot. Well worth the money. We also went to the place she suggested for lunch and it was delicious.

    We missed receiving the e-mail (due to being international) that indicated our tour guide would meet us at the hotel. We were at our original meeting point right on time and due to the miscommunication started our tour 45 minutes late. Giacomo did a fine job for the time we had us, but we lost 45 minutes of our tour as he finished the tour as if he had started with us on time. We should be reimbursed for 1/3 of our tour fees due to the miscommunications and delay.
