I did the walking tour of Florence last week with five of my friends during our visit to the city. Francesca was our guide and she was fantastic! I loI did the walking tour of Florence last week with five of my friends during our visit to the city. Francesca was our guide and she was fantastic! I loved how she not only showed us the bigger, well known attractions throughout the city but also the smaller ones tucked away from the "touristy" areas. This was our third Roman Guy tour while in Italy and they continued to hit it out of the park. One of the things we enjoyed most was that they keep the tours smaller so you can ask your guide more questions and not feel lost in the crowd. I would highly recommend a walking tour of any of the cities on the day you arrive because it really helps you get your bearings on how to navigate the area...more

She met us at our hoteWe visited in mid-March and enjoyed a lovely walking tour with our guide, Ellen. It was just our family of four-which was nice. She met us at our hotel in the city. She took us to most of the major sites and a couple of sites we would have missed without her. She was knowledgeable and understanding when our teenage boys wanted to move the gelato stop to an earlier time. When we went to the Accademia Gallery to see Michelangelo's David, her enthusiasm was contagious. She explained the sculptures that lined the way and gave us lots of info. It was a nice way to spend a few hours learning about the beautiful city. Thank you!!..more
