Charles was incredible!!

Our tour guide, Charles, was absolutely incredible! Made our entire Florence trip so much more meaningful. He’s a true student of Florence history and the arts and so passionately shared his incredible insights throughout. So many guides narrate from prepared scripts but not Charles. When one’s passion becomes their work… we’ll, that is Charles. Highly highly recommend!

The Essentials of Florence

Let me start by saying Cristiano was a fantastic tour guide. He provided an incredible amount of information and encouraged us all to view the various statues/monuments/buildings as they were designed to be scene but then look at them again from various angles. He encouraged questions throughout and threatened he would be full of bad jokes if we didn’t. Overall, a great way to get comfortable with the city and see the highlights before another 3 days to ourselves.

Great walking tour, mostly about David
AnaMaria_N
, Jul 2022
Our tour guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about Florence and the statue of the David. Learned a lot about David, Michelangelo, and the Medici family. This is a very in-depth in-person experience describing the statue. There was no “skip the line” Duomo part though, which was kind of odd and misleading. Overall worth the almost 3 hours of David plus walking your in downtown. Be aware, the tour leaves on time if not early, and if you have your own headphones I recommend you bring them as the ones they provide are not the most comfortable.

Although we were disappointed the Duomo was closed (feast of St Ranier), we had a great tour around Florence with Daniella. There are so may things tht I learned about the Medici family, the history of FLorence, Michaelangelo that I would never had known without this tour.

Stephanie was incredible. My husband and I were amazed by her wealth of knowledge. We were never bored during the three hour tour and we spent time that evening talking about all we had learned. The entire tour was fascinating from start to finish. We highly recommend this tour with Stephanie as your guide.
