We did 2 different tours with Freya's Florence - the Palazzo Vecchio and vicinity with Sara, and the Accademia/Palazzo Davanzati with Sashia. Both were terrific, and really brought the city to life for us. We were traveling with our 3 kids (ages 6-11) and they had a phenomenal time. Their knowledge was impressive, and they both conveyed it so well.... More

All that I can say is that Freya is amazing. She has so much energy that she could replace a Nuclear reactor and light a million homes. Energy and enthusiasm combined with superb knowledge makes Freya's tours so fun and interesting. She is a human dynamo. One small recommendation when booking her is to get her to recommend some restaurants... More

I booked a 1 day private tour through Freya to see the museum and cathedral highlights with my husband and two teenage children. I expressed in email where I hoped to go on the tour, and Freya paired our family with Nicholas, an Amsterdam native who held a law degree and a degree in art history. I cannot say enough... More

Before arriving in Florence, I booked a private tour for my son and I, and a friend of my son's who is spending the semester studying abroad in Florence. From my very first email with Freya I felt she was truly interested in putting together the tour we wanted. Our guide for the day was Joanna, who is incredibly knowledgeable... More

I was in Florence second week in February, read TripAdvisor, and booked 1/2 day solo tour with Sara through Freya's Tours. It was SPECTACULAR! I am a trained art historian, and Sara's knowledge was absolutely top-notch, as was her enthusiasm and energy. I was so pleased, I booked a second tour two days later! I was hesitant to use someone... More

I booked a private tour - Florence Overture with Academia (3 hours) - for 3 of us via the internet. The email communication from Freya's Florence was prompt and professional, and our guide arrived at our hotel prior to the start time. Her name is Lisa and she made Florence come alive for us. Besides being a native Florentine, her... More

Great experience from the start. I inquired via email and all questions and arrangements were promptly answered and made. Our private day consisted of two galleries, a market tour and a cheese/cured meats/wine tasting concluded with gelato. Sashia was incredible. She is so passionate about the art. She would build us up to the piece before we saw it. She... More

We loved our Freyas Florence walking tour. Our guide Sara was passionate about Renaissance art, and helped to bring alive the stories and the spirit of Renaissance Florence. Our two teenage boys (who know little of art or history) really enjoyed the tour, and learned a lot. This tour really helped to enrich the remainder of our time in Florence.... More

My family and I came to Florence not knowing what to expect from such a beautiful city. We toured with Ann and she told us everything we needed to know about Florence; this tour is the best, and most informative tour I've ever been on. I came home to confidently beat my artist friends with Italian art history facts. I... More

We toured with Freya, and from the moment we met her, we hung on her every word. She made Art History and the Renaissance come alive for us. I believe another reviewer said "Freya is Florence" and that is absolutely accurate. Her passion for art and the renaissance is something to be experienced for yourself, so treat yourself to a...
