Our group of seven family members booked a private tour of the Uffizi Gallery with Freya's Florence Tours on Wednesday afternoon, October 29, 2014, and it was a fantastic way to experience the Uffizi. Our tour guide was Ann: she was warm, friendly and very knowledgeable - and she introduced us to the world of Italian Renaissance art in an... More

We were lucky enough to have Sara take us around the Uffizi for two hours. We were travelling with my parents and our 3 girls aged 10,7 and 5. Sara's ability to keep everyone engaged was truly amazing we really enjoyed our tour. Having been to the uffizi many years ago by myself this was soo much more interesting and... More

We had a private walking tour with Joanna and she was wonderful. This is the only way to see and learn about Florence as far as I am concerned. The amount of information that she knows is amazing. She can virtually answer any question that you ask. I highly recommend booking a tour with this company.

On July 30, 2014, my wife, daughter and I had an outstanding tour of Florence. Freya herself guided us through the narrow streets of Florence impressing us with her deep knowledge of this Renaissance gem, her wonderful Australian humor and her flexibility. She earned a Masters in Art History in Florence which makes her particularly qualified to share the rich... More

For first-time visitors to Florence it was very helpful to have a guide through this ancient and beautiful city. Sara, a native Florentine, shared her passion of history, art and architecture for six hours and never lost her enthusiasm. We were educated, entertained and enthralled by her knowledge of the Medici to Michelangelo. I highly recommend this tour and especially... More

Excellent choice in a tour of Florence. Our guide was Rachel and it was like having our own private art historian with us. Perfect English, very knowledgable and friendly. Extremely educational tour, got right into the museums, took us to a wonderful place for lunch, and we do not hesitate to recommend this tour company to anyone. Completely worth the... More

Our guide Jo met us at our apartment and proceeded to take us on a wonderful journey through Florence. Her knowledge of the history, architecture and art was mind boggling. Tales of ancient families, feuds, folklore and her obvious passion for Florence made for a great experience. We couldn't have found a better tour guide. Thank you to Freya's Florence... More

We spent a day and a half with Lisa as our guide - she was fantastic! This was our first time to Florence, so we knew we wanted a guide to help us explore and understand the city. On one day we did the Florence Overture tour, with the Accademia, and then the next day we did a 1/2 day... More

I would highly recommend Freya's Florence Private Tours to everyone - but as I cannot comment on all the tour guides, I have to say that Sara really made this tour very special for us. I was with my husband, my 21 year old daughter and her friend and Sara catered to all our interests. Her passion for her home... More

Our tour guide was Sara, she was really very informative and would adjust to other attractions we requested. We wanted to go to santa croce instead of the other sites so we went instead. And she extended us for a bit with a minimum additional so we wouldn't be rushing to the other sites. Very helpful and flexible and good... More
