Our experience was amazing. We would definitely recommend you pick listening to the tour guide rather than the audiobook- it is far more personal and engaging this way. Our tour guide, Sarzani, was friendly, passionate and knowledgeable. You learn things other people may not know and it is overall an excellent experience. We called it the ‘Heineken tour’ because it reaches places other tours cannot reach.

Great tour with an excellent guide! Since all participants came from Germany, the tour was spontaneously conducted in German. I also think the in-ear headphones are great, so you always understand the guide very well!

I had the most amazing experience. Cristina was the perfect guide. I learned about Florence, the food, the wine! It was the highlight of my trip!

Very friendly and competent guide, explained a lot, was extremely knowledgeable about the city and its history!

We had a wonderful time, relaxed and learned about Florence with our pre-teen twins:).
