    Our guide (Rosella) was great: in a good mood, she told art-historically relevant things, entertaining and in good contact with the group. Ideal as an introduction to exploring Florence. The ride on the e-bikes (for me the first time) to Piazzale Michelangelo was a real highlight, both the ride and the sensational view of Florence!

    Great opportunity to visit the city, our guide was very nice and dedicated, showed us a lot that we would not have seen otherwise

    It was a great tour! Everything went smoothly and Rosella was super nice. We checked out the most important sights and got a good overview of Florence. I would recommend it to anyone who is visiting Florence for the first time.
