I was in Florence second week in February, read TripAdvisor, and booked 1/2 day solo tour with Sara through Freya's Tours. It was SPECTACULAR! I am a trained art historian, and Sara's knowledge was absolutely top-notch, as was her enthusiasm and energy. I was so pleased, I booked a second tour two days later! I was hesitant to use someone... More

I booked a private tour - Florence Overture with Academia (3 hours) - for 3 of us via the internet. The email communication from Freya's Florence was prompt and professional, and our guide arrived at our hotel prior to the start time. Her name is Lisa and she made Florence come alive for us. Besides being a native Florentine, her... More

Great experience from the start. I inquired via email and all questions and arrangements were promptly answered and made. Our private day consisted of two galleries, a market tour and a cheese/cured meats/wine tasting concluded with gelato. Sashia was incredible. She is so passionate about the art. She would build us up to the piece before we saw it. She... More

We loved our Freyas Florence walking tour. Our guide Sara was passionate about Renaissance art, and helped to bring alive the stories and the spirit of Renaissance Florence. Our two teenage boys (who know little of art or history) really enjoyed the tour, and learned a lot. This tour really helped to enrich the remainder of our time in Florence.... More

My family and I came to Florence not knowing what to expect from such a beautiful city. We toured with Ann and she told us everything we needed to know about Florence; this tour is the best, and most informative tour I've ever been on. I came home to confidently beat my artist friends with Italian art history facts. I... More

We toured with Freya, and from the moment we met her, we hung on her every word. She made Art History and the Renaissance come alive for us. I believe another reviewer said "Freya is Florence" and that is absolutely accurate. Her passion for art and the renaissance is something to be experienced for yourself, so treat yourself to a...

This tour was definitely money well spent. We thoroughly enjoyed it and so did our two college aged kids. Our guide, Helen, did a great job and even helped us get tickets to the Uffizi and made recommendations on where else we should go. She customized our tour to our interests. This was definitely one of the highlights of our... More

There are tour guides and there are tour guides. We've seen them all - the boring, the bad, the mediocre - some are good - some are very good. However superlatively above them all was Sara. An obviously proud native Florentine, engaging, very knowledgeable, amusing, Sara kept us (including the 3 teenage Brissies) entertained throughout a long day of Florence... More

We booked Frey for two half-day tours on our stay in Florence. We wanted to get an orientation and then get a deeper dive after we had been through the city. Frye herself led the first tour and we were absolutely delighted. She is charming, articulate, funny and very knowledgeable, but best of all, she is able to put it... More

We got so much more out of our time when we did a half day tour with Helen. Her expertise (academic and painter) may have been visible but she delivered her stories in a warm style with a fun sense of irony too. Highly, highly recommended.
