Our guide Chiara was fantastic - her knowledge about the history and kindness made my choice of walking tour with this company absolutely the best of the week! Tipping is not usually my thing but I wanted to bye her a gelato at the end. Thanks! * The individual earphone is a much nicer idea than a loud speaker for a big group (as we find many in downtown)

One of the best tours we ever had! Our guide was very knowledgeable and you could tell she is really into this topic. She answered all our questions and definitely overdelivered. We got way more than what we expected.

Martina was a great guide who kept everyone together despite the 38-degree heat. The tour was fast paced but very enjoyable and we managed to see the highlights as well as travel to Pisa. Highly recommended.

Great guide Aldo, funny without trying, gave us a great tour of the city. Really enjoyed it.

Great way to see the city (especially on a hot day).
