Beyond the historical and cultural aspects, our guide's attention to detail and commitment to ensuring our comfort were truly commendable. Small gestures like offering recommendations for local cuisine, assisting with photo opportunities, and being mindful of the group's pace demonstrated a level of dedication that elevated the entire experience. In addition to being a fount of knowledge, our guide's enthusiasm was contagious. Their passion for the subject matter was palpable, making the tour not only educational but genuinely enjoyable. It's rare to find someone who can strike the perfect balance between informative and entertaining, and our guide accomplished just that.

We took two separate tours with Camilla and because of her, our experience of Florence was so full of culture, history, beauty, and fun. Her knowledge and storytelling were mind blowing and her way of engaging her audience was so captivating. I could not recommend this enough!

Camilla is amazing! She's friendly, knowledgeable and passionate about Florence. Her tour was better than described, taking us on an alternative path through Florence that covered food, smell (perfume), sights and spirituality (3 churches that are her favourite). She also offers other tours and from February, she would only do private tours. So, catch her while you can!
