Florence Guides - Explore Florence

Even when visiting the major tourist attractions, your private guide in Florence will be able to add more to your trip by filling you in on their local knowledge of the facts, the background, and the details of what you’re seeing. Not only will you get the local inside scoop on the bigger attractions, you’ll also get to discover the hidden gems in Florence that aren’t listed in most tourist guide books. Your private guide in Florence will take you off the beaten track so you can experience Florence like a local, and explore smaller and less well known attractions and neighbourhoods.

Whether you’re coming alone or with a group of friends, your Florence private guide will love showing you around their city with pride. Their local know-how will mean you have all the tips and tricks you need to navigate the city with ease. They’ll make sure you get the most out of your trip even if you’re there for just a short amount of time.

Your private guide in Florence will start by asking you more about what you like to do. They’ll then create a program and recommend tours and attractions based on your specific interests. So there’s no need for you to be researching for weeks before your trip or leafing through guide books to find what you might enjoy. You can simply turn up in Florence and your Florence private guide will recommend you an itinerary which offers an experience of the city that no guide book can provide! And best of all, they’ll be at hand to offer advice and tips throughout the course of your trip. Want a taste of authentic Florence cuisine? There’s no better way to sample the local dishes than with a home cooked dinner by your local host.

Other than recommending where to go and what to do in Florence, your local host will be able to guide you on the best way to get around and can even take you around. This saves a lot of precious travel time, especially if you’re on a short trip and want to squeeze in as much as possible before you leave! If you need help conversing with other locals or making any bookings at all, your Florence private guide will be more than happy to help. Get ready to enjoy a truly unique and personalised Tuscan experience with your guide by your side!

Tour of Masterpieces & Insights at the Accademia Gallery

Dina took my two boys (age 15 and 13) and me on a tour of the Accademia (1 hr) and the Uffizi (2 hr). My boys were dreading going to see art - especially spending 3 hours looking at art. However, that attitude changed the moment we met Dina. Dina immediately took interest in the boys - asking many questions and engaging them. During both tours, she spoke to them and ensured they were interested. In the Accademia Gallery, she gave us a history lesson of Michelangelo's life - which was so interesting and had all three of us totally focused. During the Uffizi Gallery, she told us the stories behind the paintings - which made the tour so much more fun and engaging for all three of us again. She made sure to include things the boys would be interested in. Dina did an amazing job structuring the tour to us and to keeping my boys engaged - which very few guides can do. At the end of the tour, my 13 year old told her that she was the best guide he ever had (and that is saying a lot because I do tours every place we visit - and have used many different companies). And, I agree with him. We had an amazing time - and both my boys were shocked the 3 hours went so quickly. Something they dreaded turned into one of their favorite things about Florence. If we ever go back to Florence, I would definitely use Dina again for more tours. We Loved Her!!!!

Florence's Family Tour: Statues, Myths & Imagination

Christina did an excellent job of keeping the kids engaged. The tour was very flexible and we did the gelato break at a perfect time. She was very knowledgeable and my kids enjoyed her enthusiasm.
