Walks make it so easy to book and pay and the tours are outstanding with knowledgeable guides who have a sense of humour and good life experience. The small groups up to 20 make it easy to relate to other travellers if interested.

Our tour guide, Florinda, made this an exceptional city tour. She shared a great deal of historical context for the key Florence sites we saw in our half day tour. I highly recommend- one of the highlights of our Italian family vacation!

Some technology issues meant at times difficulties hearing the guide. Whilst Brenda was knowledgeable she did initially set off without an introduction or checking everyone was following. We nearly got left behind. I would also suggest Brenda uses a guides flag or similar as even with her hand up it was difficult to see her in a crowd.
