Our guide Marco was very friendly and open-minded. He told us a lot about Florence. We had just arrived in Florence so it was a good first overview. Marco answered all questions at any time, so the tour was a lot of fun. Unfortunately, the visit was limited to a very small area and ended very abruptly, 25 minutes earlier than expected, on the Ponte Veccio. Nevertheless, I can recommend the guided tour for a first impression of Florence.

The tour was interesting and very detailed in numbers and art. We did not go to nor was anything mentioned about Ponte Vecchio or Duomo. We were about 10 people and the guide was very friendly (she jumped in last minute). She was showing a few pictures on her booklet as well. I would have wished for a few more fun facts or insider knowledge, though.

Visite guidée intéressante et très agréable pour avoir un premier aperçu de la ville. Notre guide Amanda aime vraiment sa ville d'adoption et nous le fait ressentir. Elle n'a pas hésité à nous faire traverser l'Arno pour nous éloigner des touristes et nous faire découvrir des quartiers plus tranquilles et tout autant chargés d'histoire. Beaucoup d'anecdotes intéressantes. Elle ne compte pas son temps et nous a donné de bonnes adresses/conseils de visite. Parfait pour commencer un séjour à Florence ! Petite remarque, peu de repères historiques généraux mais c'est plutôt simple de refaire son retard en lisant d'autres informations !
