The tour leader Laura Donna was an engaging story teller about Michelangelo and the David. She made it all come to life. Bravissima!

We had the Original Florence walking tour with Brenda. It was great from beginning to end. We loved the fact that it was a small group of people (about 12), and that Brenda, A local Florentine, put in her personal touch all along the tour,...More

Corinna was open, blunt, and fascinating. She took us around and brought the city, it’s architecture, and it's people to life for us. We learned so many things about the grittiness of medieval life and the nastiness and intensity of the politics, religion, and the...More

Really enjoyed this walking tour today. It was a three hour, fantastic and fascinating historical overview of Florence. Our guide Manolis was great and very conscious that we had a stroller and young baby, which was no problem. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough.

We did the "Fascinating Florence: Guided Walking Tour". It was excellent. 20 people had signed up and we were split up into groups of 10 each. This is a significant piece of information when you see the size of some of the other walking tours!...More

The Artviva Uffizi tour was guided by Manolis. This was the best tour I have experienced in years of traveling. Manolis is not just well informed, he is witty and a natural entertainer. The Uffizi is a must see in Florence and the Artviva tour...More

Florentia, as it was called by Latins, is permeated by
an eternal beauty spread in all corners of the city.
The historic center is characterized by the immensity
of the Duomo, able to transport tourists into the
brightest age of Florence: the Renaissance. Who does
not know the Brunelleschi Dome, San Giovanni
Baptistery and the Giotto’s Campanile? Everything is
enclosed here and it would be easy to imagine the city

Our groups were never more than 10 people. It was a great size and we had headphones so we could hear our guide at all times. Highly recommend this company! Have fun!🍷
