Our tour guide, Sarah, was a gem. She knows so much about Florence and the city’s history. She has a wonderful personality full of joy. The city is very crowded but she helped us navigate and see the highlights.

Our guide was passionate and very knowledgeable about the history of the city! If you like history-focused tours, this is a great one to take! We were hoping for less history and more fun facts, info on culture, a day in the life of a local, restaurants, etc.
