Despite the low number (3 people) the tour took place. The Guide Manolo was extremely friendly and motivated. With a few insider tips, he helped us to find good restaurants and nice excursion destinations. The aperitivo with all you can eat buffet was very tasty you can hardly imagine a better start in Florence!
Very pleasant evening. Guide (Paula) good, nice and professional.
Wonderful experience in the company of a very nice Australian couple. Paula, the guide, was exceptional and joined the small group with professionalism and sympathy. Impeccable local aperitif and satisfactory consistency. Definitely to be recommended and repeated for other destinations. Thanks.
Amusing city tour
Our guide was incredibly enthusiastic and staked us out with it. A relaxed tour in a good atmosphere. The restaurant with the buffet was very narrow and the food was only refilled for a short time - it remained at 1 plate
it was great to hear all the history and see all these places plus food
We had so much fun discovering the tastes of Florence!
