I took this tour in Sept. 2014. It was excellent! We had two tour guides, one for the morning and one for the afternoon. Our guide for the Uffizi gallery was the best guide I have every had at any place at any time, and I always go on tours. I don't know his exact name, but he said that... More

Visiting florence through the eyes of michaelangelos artistic journey. From David (what a masterpiece brought to life by our guide Angela), to the machinations of the Medici family. Suddenly all the architecture of florence makes sense and the history comes alive. Well worth the walk, and worth the fee. If I were staying longer, I would have done Uffizi that... More

Visit was on 13 December, 2014. This was a very last minute tour booking to enable us to see more of the Tuscan area and we were so very happy with the choice we made. Our guide was Lindy and she was a fantastic tour guide. We did the Tuscany day trip to Montalcino wine region, Sant'Antimo Abbey and the... More

I read various reviews on the website and I can say I was not disappointed. The guides were informative and friendly and made the morning and afternoon tours extremely interesting, especially with the additional tit bits that you don't get when viewing on your own.

We had two great tours with this company -- The Fashion Tour and the Wine and Villa Tour. Both were fantastic. The Fashion Tour ended up being a private tour for the two of us (low season). Our guide, Constanza was charming and knowledgeable as she walked us around Florence to a leather workshop, linen store, soap/perfumes store, and the... More

We did this tour in both Florence and Rome. In Rome, Amanda was wonderful! She took her time and answered everyone's questions. She kept our attention throughout the tour and we learned so much we wouldn't have otherwise! In Florence, Paulo was incredibly knowledgeable about the architecture of the palaces we visited and about their families. By the end of... More

A wonderful, informative, organized tour. Our guide, Angelo, taught us so much about Michelangelo's David. And the walking tour around Florence was also excellent. His knowledge and passion about Florence and its history made the tour very special.
