“The biggest disappointment in Florence”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

We like walking with free tours – tour guides usually very informative and knowledgeable … But when tour guide not even showing up … That was the first time in our “walking” history. We came for the morning tour, waited with the company of about 20 people. No tour guide. Then we decided to give it another shot at the afternoon … Another group of around 20 people was left disappointed simply because tour guide never showed up. This company in Florence should learn from others like Rome, Prague, New York.

“Best way to get an intor to a new city”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

We went for both free walking tour which started in front of Santa Maria Novella church at 11.00am and 2.00pm tour. We had the same guide for both with just an hour n half break in between. I don't know why they don't jsut combine the two and have one 3 hour tour. The guide was a softspoken lady with a heavy accent. But once you got use to her accent it wasn't hard to follow along. She was very knowlegdeable about the city and answered a lot of questions. I find the free walking tours as a great way to start off in a new city. And it definitely served my purpose.
