The guide was so soo nice, she walked us through some of the most beautiful places in the city, shared local tips and presented historical events in such a nice and coherent manner. She also spent half an hour extra with us from her own time so she could show us more. We strongly recommend taking the tour!

Fatal the tour in Spanish

The guide was Italian, he did not speak Spanish well and was not understood at all. He assumed you knew the stories he was telling and gave information skewed due to the limitation of the language. I do not recommend it.

This tour is not worth it

We often book “Get your Guide” tours and have always been very satisfied. However, this tour in Florence is not worth it. After an hour, the end of the tour was surprisingly announced and the tour guide spoke only very broken German. As a family, we spent € 64, which we would have better invested in a Florence travel guide (€ 14.99) and then gone out to eat for the rest.
