What a wonderful tour with had with Sara. She was knowledgeable, dynamic and engaging. She had our 8 year old daughter's full attention- as well as ours. Sara also gave her a small book to fill out with Florence facts. It will be a keepsake for sure. Sara made it seem as though this was the first time she was... More

I was bringing my daughter to Florence for a surprise 21st birthday treat and for a little mother and daughter time. I've been previously but this was the first time for my daughter and with just 2 days I wanted to make sure we did the main sights but didn't want to trawl around on a large tour. I wanted... More

We had two half-day tours with guides from Freya's company during our stay in Florence over Christmas. Both guides did an awesome job keeping us and our two grade-school-age children interested, entertained and educated. It can be hard to keep parents and kids equally interested, but they both did a great job at that, which is highly commendable. The first... More

I originally booked two tours with Freya for four of us. My husband, me, a 10 year old girl and a 12 year old boy. Helen was our guide for two day and we will always remember her and her lessons. Helen made history come across as a very interesting story instead of a lesson. She is extremely knowledgeable in... More

We have traveled extensively and in every country we seek out one of the best historians or tour guides to explore the sites with. We have young daughters who we school in the "school of the world" on the way around. We were referred to Freya from several sources when we were considering exploring Florence and so signed her up... More

Our Tour guide for the day was Freya. We started out early in the morning for a long fun filled day. Freya's knowledge and passion were unsurpassed! Making this one of the best tours I have ever been on. I learned so much on my tour about not only Florence but also Italy. We connected with Freya from Loretta at... More

We had a very good experience with this company and were very pleased with our tour guide Sashia. From the first communication with Freya everything was very smooth and easy. We arranged for her driver to meet us at the airport and take us to our hotel and then we arranged a private tour that afternoon. Sashia made the city... More

We were in Florence for our 30th wedding anniversary and Freya organised guided tours on 3 mornings for us. Sashia was our guide for the first morning and the last and Riccardo took us round the Uffizi gallery on the middle day. Both were very special and looked after us and educated us really well - they really know their... More

Our tour guide was Sara. She was so knowledgeable and enthusiastic. She was enthralled with Florence and made us feel the same. Being an art history major, she made Florence's history come alive. Every landmark was so interesting because she brought us back in time. Sara also recommended a nearby local place for lunch and even called ahead to make... More
