It was a very good and succinct introduction to florence that i would recommend to those who are visiting the city for the first time. it covers several of the major sites and offers a good overview. i would especially recommended it before visiting places in greater detail.

Manuel was a great guide. we enjoyed learning some of the history of the city. he was very good at pointing out details and explaining the meanings. on our own, many of these details would be missed. they explain so much! thank you!

Evening tour: manuel was flexible enough to make a detour to the small streets which gave us a better feeling of a city apart from the main attractions which he covered very thoroughly with interesting details.

Great tour, probably the most informative we have been on in europe! manuel told us so much about art, architecture and the history of florence, and answered all our questions amazingly. there were only two of us, so essentially ended up being a private tour! would highly recommend to anyone wanting an informative evening tour of florence.

I am in florence for about 2 months now. we did the walk "florence by night" and it was a very nice tour. manuel knew a lot of details and we also saw some points i wouldn't have recognized before. it gave me a new view for the city.

We did the tour with manuel and it was great, not only for the knowledge of his city that he has but also for the time entertained and chat we had after the walking which took us around 2 hours.

he took us to the must of fiorenze and told about the history, art, architecture,

The tour was very informative. i personally learnt a lot of interesting information related to the beautiful city of florence. i think that christine was capable of informing us about so many interesting things. plus, she seems to be an open person. christine was a bit tired though she tried her best. i think the location of meeting was not very clear . this is why we were not many of us in the walk and i think (but i am not sure) that there were some people who came, but didn't find us. anyway, thank you very much for the walk christine.
