I felt the walk was great and informative. where we walked was beautiful and interesting. christine was friendly too. maybe the tour could start earlier ( if possible ) so that we won't be walking under the noon sun. thanks for the tour. would definitely tell others about you.

Loved the tour. christine was very knowledgeable and helpful and took great care to make sure everyone was keeping up and standing in good places to see and hear.

great to have our attention drawn to things we might have missed otherwise, like the architects admiring their work on the duomo, fizzy water taps and local street art.

christine also gave us great recommendations for things to see and do after the tour so we took a walk up the hill for some great views and enjoyed lunch at a restaurant off the beaten track.

This was a really informative, interesting and entertaining tour of florence. christine is proud of the city she lives in and it shows! it doesn’t just stick to the main sights but takes you through side streets you would normally just pass by without giving any thought to yet hold hidden treasures of history. who would otherwise take notice of street signs, for example, that have been used as canvasses for a street artist? you also discover why you can no longer walk through the covered walkway built for the medici

do yourself a favour, if your time is limited in florence or you want to learn more about it, book yourself on to one of christine’s tours!
