It’s was great she was very knowledgeable. just fyi she shows up right before the meet time. most tours ask you to arrive early and i was freaked out thinking i missed the tour. it’s was a nice mix of old and new florence. some time she was hard to hear, but you just have to get in close. i would recommend to take her tour.

Christine was a wonderful guide today. her tour was well structured and informative as well as funny. we hit the main checkpoints of the city where she told us a bit about the history of florence, followed by a short segment about the local street art scene. i will definitely book another tour with her when i come back to florence.

Great!! christine was lovely and very knowledgeable. the small size of the group was very nice. it was the perfect amount of time, and you finish the tour in a beautiful, more local square, just in time for lunch or coffee.

Good introductory tour around the main spots of florence, but also with some more local spots and small stories left and right. not over filled with facts and knowledge. felt short and precise and is optimal for people just arriving in the city and without loads of preparation. super small group size was amazing, chilled and personal atmosphere.

The tour is an great way to see florence. the guide (christin) was very knowledgeable and show us the most important points of a city. her english is very easy to understand. the tour is well paced (not too long, not too fast, not to slow). it's a free tour based on tips, but the quality is better than some of the tours i've paid for.

Christine took our tour this week. she was very informative and friendly. it was sometimes a little hard to hear due to how busy it was in some areas but we were shown some things you never would have known about had we not been told. highly recommended over the busy, over packed tours

Fantastic tour with christine. she showed us some incredible highlights of the city, had interesting explanations about the history, and included some wonderful street art also. hard to hear at times, but if you’re sure to be in front of her when she’s talking, you will learn a lot. thanks christine!

Our guide was christine's partner, manuel. manuel was prompt at the designated meeting place and led us on a fascinating tour of florence's landmarks, touching on history, politics, art, and architecture. he happily fielded all of our questions (and we usually have a lot of questions). the tour was a highlight of our time in florence and we would highly recommend it.
