Great introduction to the historic center of Florence. As we had only 2-3 days in Florence, this tour allowed us to see and appreciate the key areas of the beautiful city. Our guide, Daniel did a terrific job in the sweltering heat, helping us to learn more about and love Florence.

Esperienza molto positiva. Daniel, la nostra guida, ci ha dedicato più del tempo previsto. Ci ha intrattenuto con nozioni storiche, architettoniche, curiosità che hanno reso la visita interessante. Notizie utili anche x visitare poi Firenze in modo più organizzato. Molto disponibile alle nostre domande e attento ai nostri tempi, ci ha messo a nostro agio. Spiegazioni assolutamente non frettolose. Grazie, è stato un piacere
