FlorenceTown did an excellent job!

Our travel agent used Florencetown to arrange a city tour, museum tours, and a day trip to Vinci. In every case the personnel were quite professional, spoke very good English, and the guides were quite knowledgeable of both art and history. Kudos especially to Mario, who arranged the individual excursions, who was always available even after normal business hours, and who even brought us a sack of fresh cherries which he had picked the day before. Florence town had several other excursions and experiences which I might try on our next trip to Florence, and I'm sure that they could arrange customized experiences if we asked.

When using a tour service, the experience always boils down to the individual tour guide. We were lucky enough to have Vanessa as our Florence tour guide for 2 days. She was energetic and passionate about her hometown. We were a group of 11 (including 4 teenagers) and she kept all of us engaged for the entire time she was with us! Because we were on a private tour, we were able to have Vanessa show us sights not on the normal tour circuit...best gelato in Florence, local markets and local food tasting, best places to but leather, etc. Of course, we also visited the must sees (Accademia, Uffizi, Duomo, etc) and loved all that we learned. Thank you Venessa for showing us your city!!

She was so cute and knowledgeable of the city. You could tell she really loves her job. She was very personable also. She spoke many languages and English without a accent. At the end we wanted to bring her home with us. She has never been to America.

We really had a great trip. Accomodations were extremely nice and comfortable. The tour guides we worked with were friendly and very committed to ensuring we were satisfied with our experience. We learned a lot and our trip was more enjoyable than had we planned ourselves.

Want a superb vacation in Italy? Hire Diana!

Diana is eminently competent (which is why she still is around), a joy to work with (cannot call it work but you know what I mean) and overwhelming in her services to this client. On top of which, she is ALWAYS ready to fix the little hiccups that are bound to happen (Always means "even the middle of the night") And she is nice - smile, kindness, interest... Best of all, she listens to what the traveler desires and does her best to meet (and exceed) all of his/her wishes.
Wonderful Tour Guide

Tour of Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s
Reviewed on: 22 Oct 2018
Our tour guide, Susan, was actually British, but she has lived in Venice for 25 years. We did the Secret Itineraries tour of the palace where we went into some of the prison cells and learned about some of the famous prisoners like Jacomo Casanova. Susan was very entertaining and made the stories come to life. We especially liked that each person on the tour, there were about 12 of us, had their own headset to wear. It really helped us to be able to hear what Susan was saying as we walked up and down staircases, etc. in the Palace. Great tour!

We were unsure if we wanted to do guided tours, and are so glad we did! In particular, our tour of the Uffizi was excellent - the tour guide was so knowledgeable and really made the experience special. Only thing I would not recommend is booking two tours in one day - can be a lot!

We had two pre-reserved tours in Florence, Italy. The first was the city bike tour. It was a blast! Our guide, Martina, was fun, energetic, and taught us a lot! The bicycles were in very good condition and had a basket to carry a few items-a bottle of water that was included. (They use radios that come in great thru the ear buds.) We made several stops and towards the end-a complimentary dish of delicious Gelato! Some of the roads are cobblestone and the streets are quite busy with cars and pedestrians, but we really enjoyed it! I probably wouldn’t recommend this for kids under 16. The other pre-reserved tour was a full day trip to Cinque Terre. It was a two hour ride from Florence. Our guide and driver for the day in the clean, spacious van was Alessandro. He was a wonderful, easy going and informative guide. I can’t recommend this tour enough! What a wonderful day trip which included stops in Manarola, Riomaggiore, and a delicious lunch on the piazza in Vernazza. Incredible!
