Amazing Tour that did NOT cancel!
Elizabeth_T

With all the COVID-19 travel restrictions, it is very difficult to find a tour that will not cancel on you. I booked 3 on my trip to Florence and 2 canceled on me, but not this one! I was so happy that this company did NOT cancel on me even though I ended up as the only person on the tour, and it was a wonderful experience! My guide was very knowledgeable and shared all the conspiracy theories of the Medici with me! It was a great and personal experience! She even went out of the way to show me where I can buy quality souvenirs I was looking for and where to eat! Definitely recommend!

Giada gave a wonderful introduction to one of the most beautiful cities I have ever seen. She gave historical background with a warm and witty manner explained many well known and even hidden gems of Florence. This was the perfect tour to take before any other tours to orient yourself to this gorgeous place.

Thank you for a great experience! Our guide was informative and interesting and made the history of Florence come alive. My sons 11 and 9 years were fascinated. It was wonderful walking around with a person who lives there and is passionate about their city! Also the gelato stop was perfectly timed and AMAZING! great find! Thank you.

Maria was simply magnificent. She gave me history, artistic techniques and general information about the city. Pace perfect and her delivery excellent. This is the best tour I have experienced in Europe. Gelato to celebrate it's founder at the end was very welcome. Glad I took this tour on arrival. Thanks Maria!

Lisa was an excellent tour guide. Katie and I learned so much, and I'm a bit of a question-asker, and Lisa was able to fill in the blanks for everything. Couldn't have enjoyed it more. THank you!!
