We decided to do the one-day tour knowing there would be couple large cruise ships in town on that day, so that we did not have to worry about ticketing. The morning walking tour with Sarah, the proud Florentine was really good. With some not in depth pre-reading, what she described along the tour really came to life. The afternoon... More

The 6 hour tour was misleading as it actually was 3 hours in the morning and only 90 minutes in the afternoon. They included the time on your own between tours in the information "billing" It was a bit expensive as the museum tickets were not really expensive on their own, but the lines were long-even with our group priority...

If you're looking for a tour that takes you directly to the highlights of the Uffizi, with a delightful, interesting, knowledgeable tour-guide, this trip is it. Our wonderful tour-guide Beatrice, provided a fun, well-paced, and with interesting "insider" information, humor and passion. LOVED IT. Beatrice was delightful!

We booked our Italy trip through Perillo Tours and this tour was included in our package. The Accademia (where the statue of David is) and the Duomo are 2 of the most important sites to see in Florence. With that being said, when we arrived on Sunday morning to our meeting point for this specific tour, we were very disappointed... More

The places we visited wonderful, well organized tour. The only problem was with the guide, named Gio.

Laura the guide was charming, the vineyard, wine and dinner were excellent. There were 9 guests, and Laura made it easy for us all to chat, and relax. A lovely evening in the Tuscan hills and very good value for money.

This tour was WELL WORTH doing. We did the Uffizi tour in the morning which was split with a gap for us to go and have lunch and a sit down before starting the second part of the tour in the afternoon. This was such an informative tour, and well worth doing. Our guides were very very informative and the... More

"This was our first trip to Florence (April 2015). Angelo brought Florence to life for us with his knowledge, his enthusiasm, and his passion. If we ever return to Florence, we would engage him to share the rest of Florence with us. He was absolutely terrific. We highly recommend him!"

It Was a really enjoyable evening starting with a tour of the vineyard and learning how and when the grapes were picked and the winemaking process. Our host Laura was so lovely and gave us the history of the vineyard. We... More
