    The tour by foot gave me a great experience of Florence

    The tour guide, Francesca was very knowledgebale and informative, which made the tour very insightful and great way to experience and get to know Florence in 1 day. This tour is great for someone who has very short time to visit Florence in just 1 day. Highly recommend this tour under this package with the tour guide agency.

    We loved this trip and would recommend it highly

    Our guide Allenora (Ellenora?) was great, her English was really good. She was very knowledgeable and passionate about Florence and the stories behind the landmarks. The only criticism was the instructions for the meeting place, it said the news stand on the corner, when it was actually the one further away from the corner.
