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

I always book private guides when I travel. My family and I have have traveled extensively and have had many great guides. However, Sara has set the standard at a level which I doubt will ever be exceeded. We just adored her ~ all of us... my husband, 18year old daughter, 14 year old son and of course myself included....

Thank you, Joanna, for a wonderful tour. My wife and I did the sculpture tour and loved every minute of it. Joanna is a truly wonderful and knowledgeable guide. I'm sure I'm repeating what the other reviews say, but that's because we had the same experience. The three hours just flew by and I never felt overwhelmed. We ended in... More

I have to agree with most of the posts about Freya's. Our guide, Joanna, was very friendly, knowledgeable, and most importantly, handled our 9 and 10 year old girls extraordinarily well. She did a great job of making it interesting for me, an ardent student of history, and for the rest of my family - who are not so studious.... More

Our morning tour with Sara was the highlight of our time in Florence. We loved the level of knowledge, kindness, and energy put forth by our guide. She took us off the beaten path and showed us things we would never have seen or understood otherwise. What a treat! She was also excellent with our two kids ages 12 and... More

We read about Freya's Florence Tours from another traveller's write up on Trip Advisor. In their review they highlighted that these private guided tours would be something that parents with teenage children would enjoy. They were right! We dealt with Graham through email correspondence asking for a guide that was suitable for our age 12 and 16 girls. In particular... More

We recently booked a half day walking tour in Florence for my husband and I and our two children (ages 11 and 13). Joanna was our tour guide and she was fantastic!! She was so warm and friendly.
