This may have been the highlight of my entire trip to Europe. Gorgeous architecture, fascinating history, and a guide who took great care of us. It was a little difficult to find him - meeting instructions were not great - but he ended up pulling into the piazza a few minutes before our scheduled meeting time and it worked out fine.

Great tour by Pietro. A member of our group is not able to walk long distances so it was great to see the whole city easily. He let us take some stops (gelato, free perfume museum) and have us lots of picture stops. Definitely go up to piazza san michanelgo. It’s an amazing view!

We enjoyed the electric cart tour through Florence. We were able to visit some locations that might have been difficult for us to access on foot, so we appreciate the experience. Our driver, Simon was very friendly and provided so much interesting information on our tour.
