With Guido we had a great guide. Who answered all our questions with a high level of expertise, initiated us into the secrets of the architectural masterpieces and brought us to all the breathtakingly beautiful places. Now we also know what Michelangelo's finger is all about and why Florence has so many towers. All thumbs up. Thank you for this great experience with the charming Guido.

Our guide, ‘The King of Florence’, was friendly, informative, knowledgeable, and gave great unique insights. It was a private tour around Florence. I have hip and walking issues and this tour was perfect. I would highly recommend this tour.

Had a great time. It was great to see more than the tourist attractions and to have a chance to explore the area. Very good pace of the Tour also very entertaining explanations .
