Great
Guide Berny is very informative, could relay interesting facts about the art and its history during the tour. This made it more interesting than for us to wonder on our own with limited information. We had 40 min lunch break. May feel like a long day especially if feeling jet lag but overall an interesting tour.

A great tour of Florence to enjoy the city for five hours visiting the most interesting cultural sites with excellent explanations of different art works by a well-qualified guide. This tour is a must if you just have one day to visit this wonderful city or if you want you have a first thourough insight of Florence to get a deeper visit knowing what must interest you the most. Superb!

Maya our tour guide was absolutely amazing. She made the tour fun, extremely informative and seamlessly wonderful. A truly excellent experience. Walks of Italy is the way to go! Always someone to contact if things go awry in your planning and they try really hard to accommodate and deliver results swiftly and without unnecessary add-on fees. Bonjorno!

Tour guide Giulia was fantastic. Very knowledgeable about art, history, and modern day Florence. Enjoyed time alone to finish visiting the Academia Museo and after the tour to finish touring the Uffizi Museo.
