"A wonderful way to get oriented to the city. Our guide, Barbara, was delightful, knowledgable, and great company for our family of five. She read us well, with a sensitivity to our interest in her city that made our time with her especially engaging and enriching." "The tour guide was waiting for us as arranged with the Agent, a good start. She was a local to the city and knew all the small streets and minor points of interest. There was no question which she did not answer with a depth of knowledge far beyond what we expected. The whistle stop tour lasted 3 hours. This was by far too short for the breath and depth of the attractions in Florence. The smallest detail of any of the buildings was explained and gave a real view into the lives of all the icons of history which lived and died in Florence." "This tour was one of the highlights of our time in Italy. Barbara our tour guide, was extremely knowledgeable, friendly, a great sense of humour and also very passionate about Florence. We thoroughly enjoyed our three hours with her and would not hesitate to recommend her to any interested visitors." "If I could, I would give Brenda six stars - she was amazing! She met us at our hotel and, being a native of Florence, she was able to take us on a fantastic and informative tour throughout one of my favorite cities in the world. Being that she had relatives in the USA, her english was perfect and she did a wonderful job of making everything about the city understandable and accessible to us.Also, being that she graduated with an art history degree, she was the perfect candidate to walk us through the Renaissance in the footsteps of the masters. Our time on the tour while long over three hours seemed far too brief when it was time to say goodbye to our guide. In that time, we covered all of the high spots in the city Il Duomo, David, etc., and also, many out of the way details that would not be noted by the average visitor. Some of the backstory and facts around the sites gave a great perspective and context as we went through Florence - having a private guide really made a difference. She even made it a point to recommend other sites and restaurants around the town, taking our map and indicating the location of all the spots for our reference later. Brenda made a beautiful city even more wonderful, and I would definitely repeat, although I've already been to Florence. This tour is highly recommended, especially with the right guide. Thank you Brenda!" "Our tour guide was just brilliant without him I would have the place ten times round and still have no substance about Florence, now I am Florentine. Great personality and it could not have been more private than the one we had. The quick way to explore Florence with a purpose."
