We second the previous comments .. Jo was a delight and brought the city, Palazzo and Duomo to life for me and my kids (ages 3 and 7). She had interesting facts for the kids, a treasure hunt and lots of questions which kept them engaged. She moved quickly enough to keep boredom and jet lag at bay but slowly... More

Our guide Helen led my 20 year old daughter and myself through the streets of Florence. Helen was a delight. She was incredibly knowledgable and great fun to be with. It was like walking around a new city with an old friend. She shared many insights about the city of Florence, as well as the works of art, both in... More

Looking back on our trip to Italy, this tour was one of the highlights, in no small part due to Nikolaus (Klaus) our tour guide. He is a former lawyer who changed careers to pursue his passion for the history of the Renaissance. Equally as important for us, he was as captivating as he was knowledgeable. My iPhone addicted children... More

Sara, our guide, knew the unique niches in the city that drew you into its charm. Sara was very engaging and patient with our two boys. We saw the city in a totally different way. Very special.

A really first class morning with Helen as our guide around the Ufizzi. Have toured gallery several times before but Helen's knowledge (both artistic and historical) opened up a multitude of understandings and insights. Expensive but worth it.

while I love art and history I was a bit concerned that my four kids (aged 8, 10, 12 and 15) might not be so enthusiastic about a 4 hour tour of the uffizi and Galileo museum. I'm so glad we organized this private tour. our guide jo was warm, incredibly knowledgeable about everything and even created a 'treasure hunt'... More

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
