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

She provided a great overview of Florence so that we could plan the rest of our week, and gave us several recommendations for restaurants and sites that we... More

In July this year my husband and I led a group of ten people on a two week tour of Tuscany, starting in Florence. Freya was our guide for two days and it was a fantastic and memorable start to the trip. To be in the Uffizi with Freya showing us a selection of the wonderful collection, sharing her incredible...

Our group of 12 had the pleasure of seeing the best of Florence with Freya as our guide . I'll be brief . Freya IS Florence . Florence pours out of every inch of Freya's soul and body. To say that she is lively, animated and passionate when the subject is Florence is an understatement. I believe that with her... More

We had a fabulous time with Freya. She was amazing and we adored her. Everything was so well organized and she was able to make the tour fit the needs for myself my mother and my 12 year old daughter. She brought history alive and had a sweet demeanor. She was very responsive to "not just another museum tour". This... More

Thank you for a fantastic day. We have just completed a 6-hour guided tour of Florence. Our guide was Joanna. It was an extremely enjoyable and enriching tour. Our party consisted of people of different ages (two children, ages 8 and 10, and three grown-ups), with various levels of knowledge about Florence, history, and art, and with different abilities of...

We are travelling with two children ages 10 and 14 and highly recommend Freya. We did two tours and I am so grateful to Freya for sharing her love and knowledge of Florence. It was our wish with this trip that our children especially our daughter renew their love for art and history. This is exactly what happened. She does... More
