Private Florence Walking Tour Reviews
What Our Customers Say...
Extremely interesting intellectual experience! My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our guide’s detailed anecdotal descriptions of each piece of art, complemented by in-depth analyses of Florentine history and architecture. Our guide spoke excellent English and was clearly extremely knowledgeable and passionate about his native city, which added to our appreciation.This was an amazing, highly educational tour!
We thoroughly recommend the Walking Tour of Florence. Carina was our expert guide who shared her immense knowledge of Florence’s history, art and architecture. She also showed us Florence’s hidden gems including artisans still working in the traditional crafts in workshops unnoticed by the tourist crowds.
My wife and I used What a Life Tours for a Full Day in Florence consisting of the Uffizi, Accademia and walking tour after being on their Vatican and Coloseum tours in Rome last year. Once again, they did not disappoint. Both Mat at the Uffizi and Elizabeth on the Accademia/walking tour were a wealth of knowledge and their passion about the artwork and Florence itself was very clear. We would use What a Life Tours again for sure...
