Great guide and walking tour of Florence

Angela was a wonderful tour guide. She provided a lot of helpful information about the Medici family's influence on Florence and walked our group next to key sites including the San Lorenzo church, Piazza San Giovanni, Piazza della Repubblica, Piazza della Signoria, the Uffizi Gallery, and Ponte Vecchio. My wife and I gained a deeper understanding of the rich history of Florence from the walking tour. Angela provided helpful tips for local restaurants and a gelateria near the site where the tour concluded. Highly recommend the tour!

Amazing walking tour

This was a wonderful walking tour with the best tour guide Angela! We learned so much (easy to process) history about Florence and the Medici family. It was great to see all the important plazas and buildings. Even though it was 95 degrees F outside, it didn’t feel too hot or tiring because we stood in the shade, we didn’t walk too much, and the tour was engaging. I would highly recommend this tour!!

We usually booked small group tours with best reviews. We joined this free walking tour because it fit my schedule and I don’t expect much. But Silvia is amazing and made this tour so good! I. She is energetic, knowledgeable and caring… the best tour guide! This is a steal! Get your camera ready when she talks about the music notes!

One of the best city tours I’ve ever had. Our guide Chiara was an amazing storyteller. She didn’t just recite dates and names but made all the characters come to life. She made Brunelleschi so interesting that I actually looked into getting some books about the guy as I want to know even more. The tour was about 2.5 - 3 hours but the time went so fast and I would have followed her around all day if I could. I had a couple of other tours in Florence, both before and after this one, some of which covered the same topics / places but nobody else did the narrative quite so well as Chiara. Highly recommend the tour!
