The best tour guide!

My daughter and I are in agreement that Barbara was the best tour guide we had during our trip to Italy (Rome, Florence, Venice, and Milan). Barbara was very engaged with our group, has a wonderful personality and took us to areas/places we would not have known about. We felt like we were leaving a friend at the end of the tour. It was an amazing experience! Grazie per tutto!

Our guide was very knowledgeable on the history of Florence, the Ufizzi, as well as the Academia. He was not in a rush, and spent extra time explaining key, historic sites and locations found throughout the city center. Overall a great experience.

It was perfect to have a private tour. My parents are older and we had to walk a little slower. Jessica, our guide was fantastic and gave enough time for me to translate, showed us pictures of old times to compare to the present. She stoped at some artisan stores and great street event next to explaining all the special sights of Florence. Wonderful experience.

In spite of the hordes of tourists, this was a great walking tour of Florence that gave us a good orientation to the key points of interest with helpful background and history as well as entertaining anecdotes. Seeing Michelangelo's David in person was a highlight.

Our tour guide Francesca was great. Had an issue at the ticket line to see the David because an 11 year old was not with us yet and the ticket approver would not process us until we were all there. Our problem not our guide. So we had to wait while they resolved it. But glad we had skip the line. So many tourists. It was crazy even in our line. The walking tour part was good. Enjoyed it.
