    Excellent tour. Had a little bit of rain in Siena, but by that time we had seen the sights and were shopping. Great stores. Both the wine and the lunch at the vineyard were incredible. And the scenery was true Tuscan. Finally San Giargino was very pretty, lots of shops, but the best was the gelato!

    Also five stars to our tour guide Lorenzo and the driver Pino. Lorenzo made sure we had everything we needed and told us the precise locations to meet after our free time.

    Mario was a fantastic guide and storyteller. He explained the works of Michelangelo with an insight that is very unique. We were left more energized with his narrative after the tour. It’s the best way to see the David in Florence.

    The guide was great, given it was quite a small tour, it was still fascinating to learn all the facts and associated stories

    After seeing Dan Browns Inferno I really wanted to see the Palazzo Vecchio. The hall of the 500, rooms of the Medici and secret corridors are amazing to see. Essentially stepping back in history to see how the Medici lived during the renaissance. Another treat was Dante's mask. The guide was very knowledgeable and brought the Medici apartments alive, explaining what we were seeing in great detail!

    The art needs to be seen to be believed, pictures can't capture it. The tour hit all the highlights of the Gallery along with insights about Florence and the building itself.

    The crowds are massive in Florence and despite the early time, the galleries were packed. You get more out of the experience with a guide who gives background which helps counteract the crowding. We had 9 in our group which was manageable in the crowd, too many more and you would get separated.

    Stefano was a brilliant guide, patient and knowledgeable. A great way to learn our way around the main sites of Florence, and to make the most of the visit to see Michelangelo's David.

    The tour was great. For us it was a perfect amount of time. Our guide pointed out the highlights in both galleries. Only problem was we hard some trouble finding the meeting place. We had the address but google maps became confused at the Uffizi. We asked a tour guide from another company who told us that the street was behind the Uffizi then it was easy to find. This would be helpful information to put in with the meeting place location.

    Camilla was an EXCELLENT tour guide for the Pitti Palace and Bobola Gardens. She spoke with such great passion and enthusiasm. I am so glad I was able to be in her group. The Pitti Palace was so grand and I couldn’t imagine walking through it without an expert. Camilla contextualized the history and even connected it with things we may have learned in other museums in Florence, and even other cities or countries depending on the background of those in the group. Her knowledge is incredible and happily took questions. She also gave me an incredible recommendation for lunch (and gelato!). Book this tour!!

    Our tour guide Guilia and driver Daniele were FANTASTIC!!!! Picking us up/dropping off is a huge plus as most tours don't provide that. We drove through to Pisa and then to Florence. Guilia taught us so much about Pisa and why the tower leans. She then led us to Florence where we met with another wonderful guide who took us through the town and to see the statute of David. They were all professional, knowledgable and a great day. I would recommend this tour and can't wait to book it again!

    Sylvia led a wonderful tour of the Uffizi and Academy Gallery that truly painted the picture for us of Italian Art and Art history that also tied back to other parts of our trip (Rome). I can't say enough nice things about how knowledgeable she is! Would highly recommend her as a guide if you can ask for her.

    Irina is the best travel guide I have ever had, so much that we came back the next year to book her again when traveling with a different group. She is knowledgeable, prepared, and makes everything a breeze. She is a great storyteller and has such passion for her work! We can’t say enough positive ❤️
