EXTENDED TOUR DESCRIPTION

THE BEST OF FLORENCE IN JUST 3 HOURS

From the Ponte Vecchio to the Duomo, Florence’s most famous sights are famous for good reason – don’t miss a single one! On this Florence walking tour you’ll discover all of the city’s top sights, travelling in small groups of only 15 people or fewer. With skip the line access at Michelangelo’s David we make the most of every second we have together, while our expert guides bring the city to life with stories and details from Florence’s long and dramatic past.

SAVE TIME WAITING IN LINE TO SEE DAVID

Feel like a VIP with pre-reserved access into the Accademia, Florence, shortening your wait time significantly and avoiding general access entrance lines that can last for hours.

Once inside, your expert Walks guide will reveal the fascinating history of Michelangelo’s David, whose beauty and size have to be seen to be believed. You’ll also see his unfinished Slaves. Emerging from crude blocks of marble, they give an incredible insight into how Michelangelo worked and how difficult it must have been to achieve that butter-like softness in his sculptures.

VISIT THE INCREDIBLE FLORENCE DUOMO

Another sure highlight will be Florence’s famous cathedral, the Duomo. As you admire the sparkling mosaics and exquisite frescoes, you’ll discover how the architect, Brunelleschi, had to re-learn knowledge lost for more than a millennium to build the cathedral’s world-famous dome. We’ll explore Florence Duomo inside and out, admiring the painted interior of the dome and the stunning marble work on the cathedral floor.

Before leaving the picturesque Piazza del Duomo, you’ll stop at the Baptistery. During a close look at the world-renowned golden Gates of Paradise, your guide will tell you stories of cutthroat competition that created the sparkling masterpiece. Don’t forget to ask any questions you have—that’s the beauty of a tour with only 15 people, maximum!

ENJOY A FLORENCE WALKING TOUR OF THE BEST PIAZZAS, OUTDOOR ART & PONTE VECCHIO BRIDGE

But your exploration isn’t over yet. At Piazza della Signoria, you’ll admire Florence’s other world-famous sight, the towering Palazzo Vecchio, visiting the original site for Michelangelo’s ‘David’, where an exact replica stands (but why is it so much less impressive?)

Hear the stories behind the statues at Orsanmichele Church, rub the Porcellino pig’s nose for good luck, and feel swept up by history at the Piazza della Repubblica, the ancient Roman forum that later became the city’s Jewish ghetto. Top it all off with a stroll on the Ponte Vecchio, the most picturesque bridge in all of Florence – perhaps all of Italy.

By the end of your time with us, you won’t just have “seen” Florence’s most famous sights. With the help of our expert, local tour guides you’ll have discovered their histories, stories, and what makes them so notable – most important of all though, you’ll have had fun doing it!

Great time with no issues.
Best of Florence was very well organized. Our guide Giulia was a wonderful communicator. We recommend this tour to everyone who wants to know more about the beautiful city of Florence.
We have been to Florence 4 other times and this was the most informative tour so far. Plenty of background and lots of observations. Well worth the money.
Angelo gave us a perfect tour with an approach axed on history and political context of the pieces of art we were seeing. Very interesting and added dimension on the Michelangelo masterpieces.
My husband and I found Stephanie, our guide, to be most helpful, pleasant, and knowledgeable about Florence. She was also sensitive to the needs of the group, by allowing time for bathroom breaks and by trying to find shady spots to stop. We could not have asked for a better tour experience.
Mat was fabulous, very knowledgeable, passionate and entertaining
Julia was a wonderful guide. She is very knowledgeable and is pleasant to listen to.

Angelo was a great guide, opinionated and full of character. We came to see David in a new light. Great gelato recommendation in perché no.
Excellent
Such an entertaining animated and knowledgable guide who enthralled all in the group. An absolute pleasure to have been envolved with this exercise.
Very informative, the guide was knowledgeable but sometimes a little difficult to understand. We felt the time was very well spent and though we only were in Florence for a short while, this tour was definitely the highlight.
Our guide was excellent! She had so much positive energy and was very knowledgeable.
Excellent guide Ishmael. Very informative tour
Teresa was wonderful and passionate about her Florence history. Very informative
We used walls of Italy in Rome and really enjoyed our excursions so we thought we would try again in Florence - we weren't disappointed! Bernie was an excellent tour guide, a great storyteller and really engaged the group - he was so knowledgable!
Same as above
Ischmael was a wonderful & very engaging guide as we thoroughly enjoyed this tour & would highly recommend it.
The Statue of David took a long time to review, however all the information provided was amazing. The only change I would make as per the Vatican tour, we needed to have been pre informed that we needed to be dressed accordingly. The tour was brilliant
Charles was an excellent guide. He brought the history of the art, artists, and city to life.
It was a great experience discovering Florence with Elenora. She was full of energy and insights and we were able to appreciate the city more for it.
Very nice tour guide, easy to understand and ask questions too. Great insights into all places visited. We took the tour based on a friends recommendation and can see why they liked it. We will use again and will easily recommend!

Such a great tour guide with a great sense of humor. She kept us entertained and we really enjoyed learning about Florence.
Our guide was great! Thank you
This was my favorite tour of the three I did during 10 days in Italy. Seeing David was even more phenomenal than the Sistine, imho. Our guide, Theresa, was also ideal.
Teresa was such a delight. She made every person in our group feel as if it were a private tour. Thank you!
Florinda was wonderful....also I took the Uffize tour Friday 6/23 and the guide and tour was wonderful... I am very happy with Walks of Italy...thank you.... Travis Peace

The tour was informative and interesting. Brenda was a great guide who obviously loved her work and also knew her subject.

She even recognized US the next day, across town while she was starting a tour of the collusem, much to our surprise, as she sees 100s of people.
Charles was a fabulous guide. My family and I really enjoyed the tour! We would definitely recommend this to others and especially with Charles
Lovely tour. Hugely informative. Mat was very knowledgeable
Wait time to get into the Duomo was long. I now understand that this venue does not have a priority entry facility, but the web site leads one to believe that is so through Walks of Italy
I thought every aspect of our tour was excellent. Our guide was very informative and entertaining. I loved it! Actually, all the guides Walks of Italy provided were very, very good.
A great tour for great value. The guide was excellent at sharing the history in an engaging in interesting way. My niece, who is not so interested in history, liked the tour and the guides' stories.
Glad to have Angelo again in this tour! Very insightful tour.
charles was knowledgable and enthusiastic, I recommended this tour with Charles
Constanza was fantastic. Highly recommend her! Her knowledge and English are excellent. Could have used just a bit more time in museum with David. Had only 15 min to roam around and your finished early. Prob allow min 25 min there.
Charles was very informative and made the tour very enjoyable. Highly recommend this tour.
Constanza was a wonderful guide. She was really knowledgeable and passionate about the subject which made the whole experience really great.

Bernardo was fabulous, knowledgeable and his enthusiasm was infectious. He really knows his subject and gave everyone time at the end of the tour to ask questions. We would definitely use Walks of Italy again. 👍

Ishmael was a very good guide and his passion for art and history was evident in the way he conducted the tour. We will highly recommend this tour and Ishmael
We learned more in 3 hours than weeks of reading. Ismael was an excellent guide and his stories gave an eye-opening view into Florence's rich history
This was our second Walks of Italy tour on the same day and like the first, it did not disappoint. It was a different kind of tour as it involved quite a bit of walking to specific points within the city but our guide took time and he handled this well.
Giuliana was Avery knowledgeable guide, particularly regarding art history, and was both friendly and entertaining. The tour is a ideal way to hit the highlife Florence if you are only there for a day.
Angelo our tour guide was exceptional. We wil recommend this tour to others.
Very nice overview of Florence. I did feel like we wasted a bit of time in line and we sat listening about art before seeing it.
Giulia was fabulous! Very knowledgeable and fun. Great tour experience overall.
I really enjoyed by Best of Florence tour. I thought my guide Charles was very engaging. I liked the headsets and the small groups. I did feel that we spent a lot of time standing in the Academia and that might have been better suited for seeing something else.
Best tour I had in Italy. Angelo was colourful, smart and very intertaining. I will recommend this tour to my friends who travel to Florence.
Angelo was a marvelous guide! His enthusiasm, knowledge and antecdotal insights added to our enjoyment. It was a pleasant experience and I would highly recommend him to anyone wanting a tour of Florence.

We've done several tours and this is one of the best! Miguel was terrific. He gave th perfect tour and kept to the family run restaurants which was special. Great job!!!
The tour was great. Angelo was very passionate about many things which was fascinating and v interesting. I thought the talk in "David" was too long by 5 - 10 mins but apart from that it was fabulous. We liked Angelo very much.
Angelo was amazing. He was so knowledgeable and really gave the sights/attractions context, especially Michelangelo's David. He was very articulate and funny! I would definitely do a tour with him again.
The tour was fantastic and so was our guide. She was informative and so knowledgeable. Grateful that we took your tour and looking forward to Rome's tour tomorrow.

Fantastic tour. Tremendous insight into the history of Florence.
Angelo was amazing. Funny guy! Very knowledgeable. Would definitely recommend!

Wonderful tour and tour guide (Ismael)! Would highly recommend :)

Ismael our guide was fantastic!
Christiana masterfully worked through a lifetime of art, history and religious symbols in the Vatican in a way that made it enjoyable and easy to digest.
Really appreciated the knowledge of our guide and enjoyed that the tour didn't only focus on historical elements but on giving us a flavor of Florence today.

My parents don't usually take tours. They were so impressed. They had fun, love the wireless headphones. Love the efficient bathroom breaks and invitation to get a coffee - all referring to the Florence Trip. EXCELLENT work!
Very good tour of the area. Would have liked to see what else the Academy had for exhibits besides David though. Seemed like a little waste of admission for one statue. Otherwise pacing was good and guide was entertaining.
Amazing tour, our guide really explained the history of Firenze down to every detail. It was such an amazing experience
Excellent tour and an excellent guide. Money and time well spent.
Our guide was very nice. The tour was very informative. We enjoyed all of it so much. Thank you very much for a wonderful tour!

Angelo is a gifted tour leader. Very entertaining and informative.
One of best walking tours we have done. Bernardo was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and entertaining.
Our guide was so knowledgeable, we assumed he must have a degree in history. Wonderful!
Bernie was just absolutely fantastic. His knowledge of where we were was outstanding. He spoke with such excitement that you couldn't help but be captivated. If all guides are like him I would absolutely continue to use you in other travels.

Our guide Ishmael was so engaging and informative. We could not have been more pleased with the Walking Tour "Best of Florence". I will definitely recommend your walking tours to anyone interested in a tour with extremely knowledgeable guides, small group and fantastic experience.
Angelo was informative, knowledgeable, entertaining and outstanding. His details, stories and insights made the tour a real experience.
Great tour!
Excellent guide as with all four of the walks of Italy walks we did.
Elvira was fantastic. Great knowledge, friendly, professional and gave us a real sense for the city. We would recommend walks of Italy tours to all of our friends
Amazing tour. Of course it's not possible to see a whole city in 3,5 hours, but I have the feeling that I've seen the most important parts. The guide gave a lot of interesting background information and was really fun! I will definitely recommend this tour to others.
Our guide was fabulous!! Gave us plenty of time to enjoy David and explained all aspects of this amazing sculpture! So glad chose thus tour....Thankyou!
Great guide. Very good narrative for the duration of the 3,5 h walk. I love the fact that the guide was not hurried at all and set the pace of the walk so that just enough (and not too much) time was spent in each location.
Angelo was very funny and knowledgeable, he made learning enjoyable and worked around the rain very well! Recommend this tour!
Bernardo was fantastico! He was knowledgeable and friendly and patient and the best guide we could have asked for. He used motion and body language to explain what we might not know. He used American pop culture to explain ancient Florentine culture. He was amazing.
Our tour guide was exceptional. His backstory to the David and the other art made the art come alive. He was the best tour guide we had in all of Italy. We did 5 tours in all.
We did 5 walking tours; 3 in Rome and 2 in Florence. We enjoyed all of them immensely but this tour, particularly the guide Charles Adler, was exceptional!
Again, a most excellent tour! Bernardo was so much fun, and his love for David was infectious. Absolutely loved this tour and would highly recommend!
Wonderful tour! Loved being able to get some insider information into Florence in a relaxed and timely way. The guide was really great :) Thanks so much!
Excellent tour. We have done two Walks of Italy tours in Rome (3 years ago) which were excellent. This one in Florence did not disappoint. Great value for what you get.
Excellent, depth of knowledge superb.
Charles was the best. So knowledgable but not boring. Gave background not just dates and fact. Interesting little stories. My husband and I learned a lot and brought back much of what I had studied in art history many years ago. He was the best
Vanessa was a fantastic guide! Very informative, patient and fun!
Great tour. Would definitely recommend to family and friends.
Angelo was not only incredibly knowledgeable he was also able to evoke a special appreciation of the David. Truly a very special tour. I highly recommend him
EXCELLENT TOUR WITH GREAT GUIDE
We loved this tour and our guide! It was a small group, Ismael was very informative and helpful! We learned so much from our tour! We will definitely recommend it !
Got to see it all with just the perfect amount of info and time at each place.
It was an Excellent tour and Paolo was Great! He gave us a lot of information about Florence and his passion for this beautiful city really shows.
Paola was extremely knowledgeable in not only the history of Florence but early world history. His story telling was very interesting. This tour was 100% better than the Venice walking tour we took with your company.
Charles did an excellent job. He was very knowledgeable about the historical aspect and included interesting anecdotes. The tour had to be redesigned due to an assembly at the Academia and he managed to adjust the tour very satisfactorily
Our guide knew so much about this tour. very impressed. Can't imagine taking this tour without a guide so give you the history and the stories of the past.
My husband and I really enjoyed the tour, unfortunately we can't remember our guides name (I blame jetlag) but he was wonderful, very informative. We did 3 Walks of Italy tours on our trip and they were all fascinating and very good value
Very knowledgeable!
Tour guide was a ton of fun. He balanced humor with facts with inspiration with knowledge. He knew his stuff. He also made it very engaging and special. Would certainly do a tour with him again. Very individualistic style, but yet very professional. He did a great job.
It was wonderful. The guide. Was great. Could not. Ask for any thing more. I am sorry i can't remember his name but i know he was original from new York
Our guide was amazing. The tour was great and his knowledge was so valuable in helping us learn about Florence.
Elvira was a fantastic guide, with lots of energy and passion about all the sites on the tour. Elvira was thoughtful and full of great information. The group size was perfect and would highly recommend your tours to others, thank you
Teresa was very knowledgeable and enthusiastic about showing off Florence. Definitely worth the money and time!
We loved our tour with Angelo. He was very knowledgable.
Not sure that it was the best place to compete the tour as it is packed, very busy and noisy. Great tour with lots of info
Loved Florence!
Excellent and knowledgable guide!
Our guide, David, was simply amazing. Really loved the tour and learning more about the city. I would definitely recommend while in Florence, and would look to take another with him in the future.
The tour was fantastic!!! Berni was a very interesting, captive and knowledgeable guide. Easy meeting point at the start of the trip and Berni even gave time to the group at the end to provide suggestions for restaurants and shopping. Would reccomend!
Charles was very informative and excellent! But his radio transmitter didn't work very well. Couldn't hear some things. Crackling sound
Charles did an amazing job of sharing his love of Florence and great knowledge of its art and history. The three hour tour flew by. Definitely worth every penny.
Our guide was very informative. I wish we could have spent a little more time on some of the other works of art in the museum.
Charles was excellent! His ability and personality in expressing his vast knowledge made the tour not only educational but entertaining. I highly suggest this tour to anyone who wants to get a good feel for Florence.

Klas was fabulous. He was so aanimted and knowledgable. He managed to relate a story to everyone in the group. We thoroughly enjoyed our walk with Klas.

Was amazing! Had a wonderful time. Guide was ver knowledgeable of the city and museums.
Emmanuela was such a passionate and knowledgeable guide. She did it with such interest and passion that it made us fall in love with the David and the city of Florence. This was one of our longer tours on a very warm day but we did not mind it at all. Highly recommend the tour and the guide.

All your tour guide were phenomenal. They all were so knowledgeable about the tour subject without being boring!
Angelo was great! He was funny and very informative. We had a wonderful time and learned so much. We would definitely chose Walks of Italy again for a tour.
We did a cooking class in rome where we met the daughters of the owners of walks of italy. We decided to do this tour. Our tour guide was very personable and very knowledgeable. I would do repeat business with walks of italy in the future.
We were very impressed with Ishmael as a guide. He spoke clearly and was extremely knowledgable of the history and facts. Even our teenage son enjoyed the tour!
Very informative and with a good sense of humor. Unfortunately we had to leave the tour after the Duomo and Baptistry part in order to meet up with friends for an event we were attending. Would not hesitate to book another tour with Angelo.
Our guide Angelo provided a great tour with David and visit to the Duomo. He was very knowledgeable and provided so much information and history of Florence. Great tour and we highly recommend it!
The tour was AMAZING!!! Our guide was over the top fantastic - she knew every detail and her passion truly kept us engaged and on edge to hear more! SHe was wonderful!

Superb guide! A wonderful experience... The lining up to see David was difficult, but our guide's ability to entertain and teach us throughout was amazing!
Possibly a little more time in the Duomo church. Other than that was a great experience!
Wonderful tour! Thank you.
Charles was just plain terrific. His knowledge and story telling was incredible. We even strayed off the path for gelato. I'd tour with him anywhere.
Angelo was really great. the depth of his discussion and willingness to engage were exactly why we go with Walks of Italy. We've now done 4 tours with Walks and Angelo was one of the two best guide we had (John who toured us through the Vatican was the other one).
Angelo was a great guide. Very passionate and articulate. I would highly recommend him and the walking tour. Thanks.
This was our third tour with Walks of Italy and each one got progressively better!
Angelo's passion for Michaelangelo's David served to build an understanding of the work of art but also the politics of that period of history. We certainly gained a deeper appreciation for all that Florence represents! It was a wonderful tour!
Omar was wonderful n places we visited all welcoming and delicious. Would highly recommend!! Signed up for one in London in September n did one in Rome. All excellent. Thank you
This tour was just perfect for us! Our guide, Angelo, was lovely - informative, funny and very knowledgable. He brought the whole thing alive and I will always be grateful for the way he 'introduced' us to Michelangelo's David - inspiring, thought-provoking stuff! Well done!
Angelo made the Florence walking tour so much fun. He is knowledgeable and informative while adding some humor and flair. We would highly recommend the Best of Florence Tour and Walks of Italy.
Great tour, a little wait @ the David museum which can't bel helped. Theresa was fantastic, very knowledgable & a great guide. She also passed on the some great restaurant info for food once you cross the Pontevecchio. I had lunch @ 4Leoni & it was delicious. Thank you, it was a great tour.
Angelo was articulate, entertaining, and a perfect host! Astounding depth of knowledge shared in a fun and engaging way.
We loved the tour, and our guide was very good, but too detailed. For example, I was ready to leave the statue of David in the Academia after about 5 minutes---I didn't need to stand there for 30 minutes listing to so much detail. Overall good though.
Angelo was amazing. He is knowledgeable and very passionate and it comes thru in his tour. Would highly recommend.

Simply fantastic. I wish I had the passion of our guide. She was very knowledgable and very professional. We did not know if we give a tip or not. She did a wonderful job. Very organized. Florence is amazing.
My daughter and I had a lovely tour with Giulia. She was very knowledgable and friendly to everyone in the group. We would definitely recommend her to others.
The guide was great ! Know so much more about Italy from her .
We really enjoyed the tour and can't stop mentioning it. Elvira is an outstanding tour guide and delivered an excellent tour with clarity and patience and made us feel very comfortable. Her knowledge of the art and Florence was superb and we would recommend the tour highly to anyone.
Charles was hands down the best tour guide I have ever had, anywhere in the World. I've already recommended friends to contact you to make sure that he's the guide before booking their tours with you.
Lovely and informative guide who was great at including adults and the children too. We all loved it.
Julie was a joy. Knowledgeable about Florence history.
Angelo was a fantastic guide. Engaging, interesting and passionate - his tales of Florentine history were enthralling. A superb tour.

Brilliant, fun and very informative. Really brought the subject to life. Thank Ismael for a wonderful tour.
Guide was very knowledgable and nice.
This was easily the best tour I've been on in the past 10 years and I do a lot of tours. It was packed full of interesting information and our guide seemed to know everything about his topic, truly wonderful tour from beginning to end.
Charles did a great job! He was very knowledgeable and did a wonderful job of sharing about Florence. I would recommend him highly.
absolutely wonderful experience. The guide was fantastic.
Lots of great information but sometimes less is more. She also tended to repeat some points several times.
Tour guide was very knowledgeable and gave many interesting details of David sculpture.
We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would definitely recommend it to others.
The guide was very knowledgeable. It was our first visit to Florence and she explained in great detail all the facets of the city's history and development. It was a very enjoyable experience indeed.
Angelo was an amazing tour guide His love of the subject was obvious and he made the tour very interesting for all I really enjoyed it
Teresa was so nice and fun with us and also very informative. We had only 1 day in Florence, and the tour was worth the time. We will recommend Walks of Italy.
Annika was very well informed and enjoyable to take a walk with
Charles is and informative and engaging guide. His story telling was great - at the end of the day we felt that we learned so much about the history and culture of Florence.
Ismael is very pleasant, knowledgeable and he speaks clearly. A very good tour leader
Our tour was fabulous! I thought I knew a lot about Michaelangelo, but I learned so much more. Ismael was open to questions & most cordial. Thank you for a great experience. Also I made reservations by phone and found everyone to be helpful and friendly.
Teresa is truly passionate and made the tour very interesting.
The stories from our guide, Angelo, were incredible. He really made medieval Florence come alive.

Charles was an incredible guide. The four of us my wife, and two children really enjoyed the tour! Its obvious that you are really paying attention and I've already recommended your company to others. Keep up the good work!
Absolutely fantastic tour guide and tour 😊 I have already recommended your company to many people. Thank you very much.
Excellent tour, with a very knowledgeable guide
Elvira was an excelent tour guide!
Ishmael was a great tour guide. If he kept my 9 year old daughter interested in art and history, I'm happy.
Great access and very happy to spend a long time in the Accademia viewing the statue of David..not hurried at all. Great overview.
Charles was an excellent tour guide, very knowledgeable. He was easy to communicate with him, & he appreciated our multiple questions!
Bernardo was fantastic!! Very local knowledge, great sense of humor, very good at describing what we were seeing in a captivating way. He offered us tips beyond the tour and enhanced our entire time in Florence. I would highly recommend him and Walks of Italy to my friends.
Charles was fab. Loved his knowledge of the city and the art of the Ufizzi. His love of the city was clearly evident.
See above.
Ismail was in incredibly informative.. learnt so much.. loved learning about Michael angelo at Academia. I give this course 10 out of 10!!!
Charles was great! So interesting to listen to and understanding of our needs with having a 10 year old.
Excellent guide and tour
We loved Teresa's enthusiasm and knowledge about Firenze. We felt very fortunate to have Teresa as a guide since she engaged the children,and kept us enthralled with the stories of the Renaissance and the key players
We were very happy to have Teresa lead the Uffizi tour as well so we could dive deeper into the art. Thank you so much, Teresa!
Fantastic! Our guide was excellent. He made the tour memorable, had the perfect balance between facts & stories, had a great sense of humor, & was very organized. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour and we learned much as well. I wish we could remember his name because he deserves a shout out!
The tour was absolutely incredible and our guide was nice, knowledgeable and spoke flawless English! Would definitely recommend your service to anyone traveling to Italy.
Great tour , enjoyed it a lot. The guide was awesome.
Bernard was engaging. We had a great time on the tour. We would recommend taking this tour to our friends.
Charles was friendly, knowledgable and funny! My family had a great time on the tour!
Teresa was awesome!
Guide was very well informed, pleasant and kind?
Knowledgeable and enthusiastic guide - great tour!
Very good guide dealing with the manically busy city as well as her group. She was extremely knowledgeable and enthusiastic, loved it.
We were extremely happy with this tour and our guide (who's name I can't remember right now - I'm so sorry!). She was very knowledgable about the history and the ART of Florence, including the political and economical factors that influenced these things. Really marvelous!
Same as above (same guide). Loved it! Loved her!
Elvira was the perfect guide; intelligent, articulate and knowledgeable. Her English was superb and she worked wonders getting our small group ahead of large groups into Duomo and Accademia.
Our guide was awesome! Her knowledge & passion of her city was outstanding! Her English was fanstatic. Overall rating would be 10! Highly recommend this tour! Ciao
See above. Mose' is passionate about his city and it is reflected through his presentation. Excellent tour guide. Gave me a whole new appreciation for Benice and Eddie to come back to experience and see more.
This tour isn't labeled in your form but is the Ufizzi tour. The guide knows her stuff quite well and I learned a lot. The museum could have more places to sit and better air conditioning but that isn't your fault.
Very nice
This was a really good introduction to Florence. Of course, seeing David was a dream come true but seeing the other sights was great too. Hearing the stories and history behind them all made it more interesting and personal. Ismael was knowledgeable and interacted well with the group.
Please read the comments for the morning tour. Excellent in every aspect. Thank you.
I would definitely recommend the tours to anyone who has a limited time and would like to get the most out of the experience.
Teresa was great, loved the tour. Would have liked the baptistery of the duomo included but overall a great tour.
Samuele was wonderful and very informative. My family and I loved our tour with him. He was very informative and passionate about the art, historical sights, and even great with restaurant recommendations. Thank you!
Bernie was the best tour guide we'd ever had. Made the walk amazing. Will request him again when we return.
David tour in Accademia with Teresa (sp?) was superb. She explained background info and details we never would have picked up on to make the tour very enjoyable.
Loved the Uffizi tour with Teresa (sp?). It is such a large museum that without a guide to highlight certain paintings and show you the evolution of their techniques, one might just wander and not fully appreciate it.
Great tour (very efficient) with an excellent guide who was fun and made the experience memorable.
Our guide Theresa did a fantastic job of bringing the art and history of Florence to life for me and my family. Bravo!
I found Guilia passionate about the arts and a warm and entertaining guide.
Great tour guide!
Excellent tour providing the historical context for our week-long stay in Florence. David was so knowledgeable and he presented the information in a lively and entertaining manner, Thanks!
Angelo was just the best guide ever!! Florence was our last city in our own devised tour of Italy - and frankly we were exhausted. However Angelo revived us with his enthusiasm, knowledge, humour and down-to-earth presentation. THANK YOU
Charles was extremely knowedgable and is love of his city, it's history, and his job is very obvious and delightful for us.
Excellent tour with an excellent guide- Ishmael. Skipping the line was a bonus and Ishmael's explanations were just so interesting. Well done to you and thank you Ishmael. Diana from Australia.
Charles gave a great tour!!! He was full of information and presented it in an interesting way. He also took the time after the tour to answer our questions.
We were extremely pleased with our tour. Angelo was an outstanding tour guide. He was very knowledgeable, enjoyable to listen to, and respectful to everyone on the tour. He was an excellent guide in all respects.
Charles was wonderful! We took several tours over the 12 days we were in Italy and though he was one of the very best guides. Excellent! Please give our thanks to Charles for a great experience.
Charles is king of the Florence Tours, with all the finest characteristics of a brilliant guide. Courteous, attentive, knowledgeable, witty. Highly recommended.
Guide was fun and knowledgable.
Charles is a great guide. Extremely knowledgeable and entertaining. He tells a story as he takes you around. Really enjoyable.
Our tour guide Angelo was great. Some tours you get people who give you basic information about the art or history but nothing is interactive. He asked us questions and provided detailed opinions and facts about the artists and their work. I enjoyed this tour very much.
The tour was very good and Guilia was a good guide and very knowledgeable. There were only 9 in our group so it was easy to ask questions.
Ismael was a fantastic guide. He was full of knowledge and interesting facts about the points of interest we visited without giving us too much information or boring us. His manner was very pleasant and his pace was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed our tour with him.
Ismael was terrific and the tour was top quality.Thank you all.
Fabulous. Have recommended it to everyone we have met on the trip
Guide and tour were both excellent. Do not change a thing, leave as is.
This tour was the perfect choice for our first day in Florence. Not only did we learn the best places to eat, but we enjoyed the company of our small group and our tour guide, Alessandro's wit and humor. We highly recommend this tour.
just to clarify our walk in the morning was with teresa and the uffizi in the afternoon was with angelo we had nothing but praise for both guides
Our guide Therese was fantastic. So knowledgeable and enthusiastic - she was very well spoken and we enjoyed her commentary a great deal. Would definitely do it again. Therese was very sympathetic to all the people in her group and made sure that everyone was enjoying it.
Charles was my guide for the walking tour with David & The Duomo. He's very knowledgeable and made the tour very interesting. Well worth the money spent!
Awesome guide, I can't remember his name, but he had a great pace, full of inspiration and a New York accent We would recommend him to all of our friends...please do let us know his name so that we can send friends his way. Thank You
Great tour. Julia was great guide who knew a lot.
it was an excellent informative tour. Ismael really brought the experience to life for us
Excellent again, guide was knowledgable and friendly...highly recommended to others.
amazing fantastic tour, Theresa was an enthusiastic guide, one of my favorite activities in Italy
Angelo was the best guide I've ever had the opportunity to be acquainted with. Intelligent and well informed and shared his love of Firenze with every word spoken.
Our guide gave both historical and anecdotal information. It was a lovely introduction to Florence!
This tour was full of knowledge and also general information about Florence. Our guide was most helpful. I really enjoyed the tour.
Our guide Helen was superb !! She was very knowledgeable and informative ! Kudos ! Kudos !
Superb job. Very knowledgeable and interesting. Perhaps the best guide we have had thus far.
Our guide waited for us and tried to connect with us when we arrived a bit late. Thank you for your patience! A great way to learn about Florence.
Wonderful tour.
I had been to Florence before and returned this time mainly because my husband had never been there. My trip this time was completely different due to our guide's detailed history of the area. She really made Florence come alive for both of us.
Good tour. Pleasant and interesting guide. Learned a lot. Would recommend to others.
Bernardo was a wonderful guide and a wealth of information. ..we met people on our trip who were heading to Florence and recommended both walks of Italy and our guide Bernardo....Thank you ciao!!
Ishmael was wonderful , walking talking and so knowledgable . Again I wish it was longer I wanted to know more . I had a days rest between the tours in Florence and that was nice .. Ishmael made me want to stay and see more of the city . Perfect !!!
We really enjoyed the walking tour of Florence. Our guide was so knowledgeable and kept the interest of our two teenage children. We especially loved the David! Thank you Walks of Italy for a great morning in Florence!
I had a great time at Florence and having taken the walk tour was an amazing experience. Giulia is a great guide!
Loved loved tour with bernardo. And so did my 22 and 20 yr. Old..that says it all!!!! Would totally recommend!!!
Our guide Giulia was excellent and I would recommend the tour and Giulia to others.
Bernie was a fantastic and very informative tour guide, wonderful tour.
The guide (Helen ) had the most comprehensive knowledge and was easily understood. Very enjoyable.
Charles was a great tour guide. We really connected with him. Probably helped that he was from the U.S. It was obvious that he loves what he does. He inspired me to research becoming a tour guide in the future.
Helen was fantastic. She was very knowledgeable and passionate about the artwork we came across. The group was larger than we would have liked given some of the tight spaces in the museums but Helen did a good job making sure everyone was comfortable.
The tour was outstanding. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to see and understand the history of Firenze. Out guide was excellent! Thanks.
Only drawback was some of the listening devices running out of battery. Guide was great and made the tour entertaining.
Angelo is a gifted storyteller and very knowledgable about history and art. It was a pleasure being guided by him through all the sites in Florence.
Angelo was excellent. An ex-pat Aussie with a great sense of humour. Had us bouncing around alleyways & sidestreets totally in awe of Florence
I chose this tour because it had everything I wanted to see during my short stay in Florence. What you get to see and the history behind it, was great. Our guide was very knowledgeable but some of our history lesson dragged on way too long. I would definitely recommend this tour.
All excellent.
Great tour! Teresa was a great guide and extremely knowledgeable.
Bernie was an outstanding guide and a true pleasure!
Great tour again. In depth knowledge and great insight.
Wonderful. Guide was great, easy to understand. I would recommend your company in the future.
Ishmal was our guide and he provided us with insight and history of the many works of art that we experienced. David was beautiful - even more so since we were able to experience David early in the morning prior to the crowds!
We really enjoyed our tour with our guide Ismael. He had great knowledge of all of the details of the tour and kept it very entertaining with all sorts of stories. We would definetly book another tour with him and recommend him to our friends.
Guilia had a warmth and quiet confidence that was perfect for this Florence walking tour. Our tour was a private one and well-paced. Guilia brought a wide range of knowledge as a guide and let our family linger when we wanted (with David and at gelato stop!)
Giulia was the most incredible guide ever! She brought local knowledge, tips for getting the most out of our visit, and a lot of fun humor to our tour.
Teresa was absolutely fantastic - engaging, energetic, with lots of amazing information. She certainly in very knowledgable. I would not hesitate to recommend her as a guide. I thoroughly enjoyed this your. Grazia!
Bernardo ("Bernie") was fabulous. We enjoyed every minute of the tour. He was informative, knowledgable, funny, engaging. We could not ask for a better guide. I would (and will) recommend him and your tours to all my friends.
Great tours!
Bernardo ("Bernie") was fabulous. We enjoyed every minute of the tour. He was informative, knowledgable, funny, engaging. We could not ask for a better guide. I would (and will) recommend him and your tours to all my friends.
Costanza was excellent - so good, in fact, I was registered for her morning tour and signed up over the phone for her afternoon tour. She really knows her stuff.
Both tours were fabulous. The guides were amazing and really knowledgeable about the subject. The size of each group was perfect
Giuila was a very knowledgeable tour guide. Could be a little more interactive though!
We had a great time and saw a lot of Italy, thanks to everyone.
This was a fantastic tour. Paul taught us about renaissance art and brought the David to life for us. It was terrific to learn some of the history and the background of Firenze. Thanks again Paul
My daughter and I had a wonderful time on this tour. Ismael, our guide, was fun and informative. We thoroughly enjoyed being on a small group tour like this one because it enabled us to interact more with the other people on the tour. Food and wine tasting was terrific also.
All tours were excellent and sites amazing. So glad to do tours as we learned alot on them that we otherwise would not have known. Great to skip the lines!
Back in the mid-90's, I lived in Firenze for nearly a year and didn't learn nearly as much as I did going on a morning tour with Costanza. She was charming, entertaining, and knowledgable. I wish I had booked the entire day!
Fantastic!!!!!
Both tours were excellent and i would def pick this tour group over a viator anyday!!!
We were very delighted with this tour. It passed up the lines & crowds quickly. Ismal, our guide was thorough & very enjoyable. The tour was the very best way to see everything.
Thank you for a wonderful walk through Florence. Our guide Charles was fantastic. He was so knowledgeable and engaging. We thoroughly enjoyed the tour.
My mother and I had a wonderful time on the tour. It was great to have a smaller tour group; we were able to ask questions and interact more with our guides. We would recommend this to anyone else looking to get more out of their time in Florence.
We took four tours with Walks Of Italy. All four were fantastic. The guides were very clear and so knowledgeable. We really did learn a lot about what we were seeing. We would recommend all four tours.
Giulia was fantastic! Informative, knowledgeable, and entertaining!
Our first tour was Venice walking with Moise (?). He was great! We then had a tour in Florence and 2 in Rome. All guides were excellent. We loved the small group size. The guides were all informative and funny and made the experience very worthwhile. Thank you.
Giulia did a great job, really enjoyed the tour!
Wonderful tours - tour guides were very informative and polite - things were very organized. Chef was awesome! We will use this company again!
We loved our private tour with Guilia! She was incredibly knowledgeable and happy to customize our tour as we went. Another great round with Walks!
Very good guide and visit ! thank you !
We only had 1 1/2 days in Florence and wanted to see the highlights, so that is why we chose the Best of Florence Tour. The guide was extremely knowledgeable and it was great to jump to the front of the long lines. I would definitely recommend Walks of Italy!
We enjoyed the tour very much and our guide was passionate about his descriptions and information.
We were very pleased with the tour and the guide. Good tour for a first visit. and we enjoyed being told how to find the best ice cream in Florence! Please thank the guide for us and it was good being in a small group.
We loved our private tour with Guilia! She was incredibly knowledgeable and happy to customize our tour as we went. Another great round with Walks!
Teresa was EXCELLENT, and her commentary was the best of any tour we took during our trip. She was very knowledgable and passionate about Florence!
Good guide
This was a long tour! So much info and such great detail ! Our tour guide Theresa ? Was spectacular and even let us a take a well earned gelato break for the kids Fabulous tour thanks!
One of the best guided tours I have been on. Our guide was a wealth of interesting information that kept our attention through a full and fast-paced all day tour of beautiful Florence. She really helped us experience the city and not just "see" it.
Excellent Tour. Charles was an excellent guide. He was extremely knowledgeable and I have a much larger appreciation of what happened in Florence.
Yes we enjoyed our Best of Florence tour very much. Aniko was a wonderful tour guide, and she really held our interest for the entire time. Looking forward to using The Walks of Italy Tours again.
I am the travel agent who booked several people on the Best of FLR tour + a couple on Rome Eternity. All were very happy with the guides.
Very knowledgeable guide- up beat and lots of good information. loved cutting the lines to Accademia
Klaas was a great guide, passionate and energetic and full of wonderful information. We will recommend Walks of Italy to our friends!
Florence CIty Stroll was terrific. Seeing the statue of David in person was incredible. Guide was very informed and a pleasure to listen to. Definitely recommended
Florence CIty Stroll was terrific. Seeing the statue of David in person was incredible. Guide was very informed and a pleasure to listen to. Definitely recommended
Teresa was amazing. i did same tour last year went again with friends. she taught me so many new things about the david
Not a single complaint! All tours were excellent - well-organised and the guides were friendly and knowledgeable.
YOUR TOURS WERE ALL EXCELLENT. WE LOVED THE SMALL GROUPS AND ALL OF THE GUIDES WERE VERY KNOWLEDGABLE. WOULD USE WALKS OF ITALY AGAIN
Paul was very wonderful. He was a great teacher and entertainer. We learned a great deal and he made it so easy to follow me. I would very highly recommend this tour.
Excellent tour, Bernado was very well informed and engaged with the group. Would recommend to this tour and guide to anyone.
Awesome tours. We took 3 tours. Tour guides were great. Very knowledgeable. Walks of Italy is the best tour company we have ever had.

Angelo gave a fabulous tour. He is well informed, patient, funny and well organized. I will recommend him to my friends traveling to Florence
The guide Anglo was fantastic. His incorporating approach and sense of humour was indeed a positive of the tour.
Julia was very informative and she has a lovely personality. We would recommend Walks of Italy.
He was very kind and caring for his group. Very passionate about his hometown Florence.Had humor. He was also well informed. He could answer any question even those not directly connected to the tour. We really enjoyed having him as our tourguide.
Angelo was fantastic. He went above and beyond.
Best tour I've ever done. Charles was spectacular.
Ismael did a great job! Great tour despite the rain.

Very informative and worthwhile

Angelo was terrific. He awed us with his knowledge of the historical sites and other secrets of the past.
The tour was excellent. Giulia was the best. We liked her so much that we were able to get her for our next tour too. Fun and full of great info. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

We absolutely loved the tour guide. A wealth of knowledge, information and stories. Always a pleasure to be with a tour guide of such calibre. Thank you.
The 3 of us all agreed our tour was very informative and enjoyed Chiara's presentation. Her knowledge and enthusiasm for the history of Florence was greatly appreciated. Also helpful suggestions while touring on our own. Our tour could not have been any better!
This is one of the best walking tours we have been on. What made it best was our tour guide ISHMAEL I do not think I have met ANY tour guide with the dedication and knowledge that Ishmael HAS . He is TOTALLY dedicated to his tour and has the gift to make you feel that he is talking to you alone. His knowledge is amazing , we would recommend this tour to anyone . Thanks to all who made it happen and if possible please convey our heartfelt thanks to ISHMAEL Regards. The Maxwells ( Dublin )
It was an excellent tour enjoyed by my husband and I and our 15 and 17 year old sons. We were only disappointed that we could not go into the cathedral due to a Bishops funeral, but there was nothing that could have been done about that, and we totally understand. Our guide did give us advice on the best time to enter the Cathedral which worked very well for us.
When the wind blew we couldn't hear the guide. Perhaps holding the mic at the time would help. The guides enthusiasm was very good.
Florinda was perfect. We really enjoyed the tour. Thank you

Great tour, with excellent walking pace, very knowledgeable guide. He worked to keep us in the shade walking between sites in the warm Italian summer, he stopped to enable us to get drinks and was extremely mindful of all the group members and their pace. He did a great job to enable finding locations for people to sit when they needed and still do an extremely thorough job explaining all aspects of the main attractions. 10/10.
Davide was fantastic! We (my wife and I and our two teenagers) had a wonderful day. It was very hot but Davide helped everyone appreciate all the different sites, and he shared lots of historical facts and various connections of ideas about culture, politics, art, war, etc. Thank you and especially than Davide for making our visit to Rome extra special and interesting.
Angelo was an excellent guide. We learned the history and motivation behind David and the Duomo. I highly recommend!
Angelo was an inspired guide. He offered the perfect mix between Italian enthusiasm, English sense of humour and Australian irreverence. His love for Michelangelo was infectious. We couldn't have wishes for a better guide! Thank you very much.
Thank you for accommodating us when we missed our tour. I would definitely use your company again
This tour was fantastic, as was the guide! I loved it and would take a tour with Walks of Italy again.
You need to take the Duomo off the tour when it is so busy with excessive lines for entry. We decided not to wait the anticipated ONE hour thank goodness as it would be such a waste of our tour time. But realistically when there is NO skipping of the line-up what is the point of including it in the tour ??
(No comment)
very hot that day. Guide did a great job
Excellent tour of an excellent city, tour guide was fantastic!
This was a great experience with Nebosja! Thank you for interesting insights and a clear and informative structure of the tour. The balance between overview and detailed knowledge made the difference!
Our guide (Constance) was full of interesting detail about the sites and the items / artwork visited. We learned many details others would simply over look (or gloss over). We had a great time (in spite of the heat). I highly recommend this tour and using Walks of Italy (small groups, local guides, relevant and engaging conversation).
Excellent service from start to end. Will definitely book with your company again when I return to Florence and have recommended your tours to others. Thankyou
Great experience, just what we expected from this tour since we did not had much time to know the city, this was amazing, thank you

Our guide Costanza for our Best of Florence Tour was great and very insightful. I would recommend her to friends and your tours as well. Great job!!!

Beautiful tour of some of the highlights of Florence. Charlie was incredible at explaining all the history. He did a great job navigating us through the crowds though hi did forget to actually show us the Gates of Paradise at the Baptistery. He did talked about them in length. This was a long tour so be prepared to be on your feet for a while. Charlie was an excellent guide and made all this history so interesting and fun.
We have been to Florence 4 other times and this was the most informative tour so far. Plenty of background and lots of observations. Well worth the money.
Angelo gave us a perfect tour with an approach axed on history and political context of the pieces of art we were seeing. Very interesting and added dimension on the Michelangelo masterpieces.
My husband and I found Stephanie, our guide, to be most helpful, pleasant, and knowledgeable about Florence. She was also sensitive to the needs of the group, by allowing time for bathroom breaks and by trying to find shady spots to stop. We could not have asked for a better tour experience.
Mat was fabulous, very knowledgeable, passionate and entertaining
