The agency provided a punctual and precise service. We were lucky enough to have a private tour even when booked for a group. The guide Tommaso accompanied us on a journey full of history and funny anecdotes in the center of Florence, making us discover even less famous and popular corners. Very kind, attentive and helpful. 1000 Thanks Tommy also for the advice on the restaurant where we went back twice!
