    The tour company was disorganized; I had booked an English tour, one woman had booked an Italian tour, and a German family had booked a private tour in german. However, the company combined all of us. Luckily I and the other woman spoke German so it was fine. The German family was not at the time given a refund, as their tour was not private. However, the tour guide (Roxanne or something like that) went above and beyond! The tour itself was very interesting and an extremely useful introduction to Florence.

    We booked the Medici Tour and dear Rossella took us through Florence. We've seen a lot. Rossella could speak German very well and was a very happy companion. We just would have liked a little more on the Medici/history and a little less on the general artists & churches. But overall we really enjoyed the tour!

    We decided on this business because we have three children between 10 and 19 years old. Everyone liked it: it was a way of retracing the history of the city and of the characters that everyone knows and who made it important without shutting oneself up in a museum and therefore fixing even more in the mind and in the eyes what we were told. The reference guide was called CLAUDIO: very kind and willing to answer questions! The total group was our family plus 5 other people and so in such a small group it's a really enjoyable 2 hour walk. We had not found availability on the afternoon and we chose 10 in the morning; in retrospect I would recommend after lunch because Florence is beautiful but a little windy and with little sun, given the majestic buildings that surround it and provide shade. This is the only discordant note to an experience that I feel I can recommend because it is engaging, captivating and told with the typical Tuscan accent, very nice!
