Giulia was our tour guide for what turned out to be a private tour. She was attentive and knowledgeable. Loved the surprise gelato stop. It was nice to see Florence from a local viewpoint! Highly recommended!

Awesome walking tour! Learned a ton about the history of Florence. Daniel was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about Florence. Also loved the small group of 6 - makes it more personable. Thanks for the great tour Daniel!

Our guide was very helpful, although the summer crowds were a bit daunting. Fortunately the tour allowed us to skip the massive lines in many places.

This was an excellent way to orient ourselves to the city. We were fortunate enough to have just three persons in our group which meant that we could engage in an ongoing conversation with our guide for the better part of three hours!

Santa Maria Novella
Santa Maria Novella train station welcomes the
majority of the people arriving in Florence, which
might explain the hectic pace. Commuters and tourists
come across the constant hustle and bustle of the
station before exiting, taking a few steps and
stopping amazed in Piazza di Santa Maria Novella. It
is impossible not to admire the the square, housing
one of the most charming basilicas in Florence. The
