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.

Daniele was a great guide and he explained every important building very well. His architechture knowledge was amazing. Florence is a kind of city which you should know about buildings and history if you wanna enjoy more. He helped a lot and made me admire to art in Florence. If I hadnt joined, I couldnt have realized the building I saw were so important and great. I highly recommed this tour if you wanna be more curious about Florence.

Daniele was our tour guide. He was very knowledgeable, easy to hear and understand even with the large group. We learned a great deal about Florence. We have been there quite a few times and never taken a tour before. This tour is for people who can walk well and the walk is not rushed. I especially enjoyed learning about ancient Florence, the original towers, the squares.
I wish I had a map of where we walked, the names of the streets.
