More to see than there is hours in the day. Memorable even for art novices. I recommend a guide unless you know everything about art. We learned a lot about the progression of art, and use of perspective through the centuries that we would never have grasped on our own.

My husband and I did the general Florence Walking Tour through the Academy, Duomo, and ending at the Uffizi. Our guide, Alessandra, was absolutely phenomenal--kind, knowledgeable, and engaging. She even gave us insider tips on buying leather and where else we can visit while in Florence. I highly recommend you do this tour immediately as it will enrich the rest... More

The groups for all of the tours were good sizes, most of them 12 people or less. Uffizi Gallery Tour, Florence - Our guide Sara was fantastic. Very friendly and helpful. She helped our small group (less than 12... More

This tour is highly recommended. Our tour guide was very friendly and entertaining and informative. In summer it was very hot so take water, good walking shoes and a hat.

I got Maja Farina as a guide. It was not always the case that I could understand her well. Many times I was wondering if she was speaking Italian instead of English. It was also difficult to ask Maja questions to make it clear, as Maja was always keep talking. It is usually nice to have an informative tour, but... More

Our tour guide, Vanessa, was so friendly and engaging! We were fortunate enough to have her all to ourselves, so our tour itinerary was flexible! She was very knowledgeable and passionate about Italian fashion and lifestyle. We were able to learn a lot about Italy beyond the scope of the tour. If you're tired of generic tours and want something... More

The amazing intimate tour of Florence is worth the price. With a knowledgeable and friendly tour guide the City Wonders skip the line tour takes you through a cultural journey into the heart of Italy and is a must see for visitors to Florence.

Excellent evening walking tour of Florence with an engaging guide. It touched on the history, art and architecture of Florence. It really brought the city to life and was a wonderful insight into Florence. I would absolutely recommend this tour.

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
