* A traveler said: "Great way to see Florence! The private tour provides a more personal experience and Simona was a great guide!"
* A traveler said: "Very knowledgeable guide with excellent English. You could tell how much pride she has for Florence. We learned a lot and enjoyed visiting the Academy. She also helped us buy tickets for the Uffizi the next day so we could skip the line."
* A traveler said: "well worth the price. And booking this enabled us to avoid the long lines. Good guide. For me, Academia was more interesting than the Uffizi, but both were great."
* A traveler said: "We highly recommend this tour! Luca was a gracious, informative, and a very accommodating guide. He really did all he could to make the day special. He was full of great information about the area and history of the region. We were able to see things we wouldn't have normally noticed on our own both during the drive there and when in town. It was nice combination of time with him and time on our own exploring. We also had an amazing lunch overlooking the Ligurian Sea, thanks to his recommendation. Many thanks to Luca for an unforgettable first visit to Cinque Terre!"
* A traveler said: "Outstanding experience. Mossimo was an excellent guide and driver. Don’t miss this tour. Breathtaking."
* A traveler said: "Having only a single day to spend in the city, our private tour filled the bill quite nicely. The major advantages, of course, are that you get to spend the allotted time with your guide as you want to. In our case, our guide, Gabriel, was the best part of the experience. He was professional, accommodating, funny, knowledgeable and genuinely enthusiastic about the subject matter. His English was also perfect, which sometimes can be an issue. He met us on time at the designated location and we used the " skip the line" line to get into the Accademia. Funny but there is actually a line ( about 15 minutes long ) of people with advanced reservations to " skip the line". The Accademia was quite interesting and David did not disappoint, especially when our personal guide was able to explain the fascinating background of Michelangelo. We then spent an hour walking past many of the highlights of the city with Gabriel explaining the related history. We had a rather long break for lunch and shopping ( more on that later ) and then rejoined Gabriel at the Uffizi. Again, having a private guide allowed us to customize our tour of this rather large facility, concentrating on what we wanted to see. My wife was so impressed by the information she learned that she downloaded a book on Michelangelo and Da Vinci to read during the rest of our trip! The only slight negative about the tour was the long break in between our time with our guide. We did have over 4 1/2 hours total as described but there was a 3 hour break in the middle of the two gallery tours. I believe this is due to the reservation times they are given for the Uffizi. We began the day at 10:30 AM and finished at 6:00 PM. We did enjoy a nice leisurely lunch and some shopping but it did turn out to be a longer day than we had planned. At the end of the day Gabriel called our hotel to arrange a shuttle back and then walked us to where we needed to be picked up. A nice extra which we appreciated. All in all, the day was perfect. You can save money by taking a group tour and receive a somewhat "canned" presentation or doing it on your own without the benefit of knowledge from a professional guide, but I would highly recommend that for a city as fascinating as Florence, and especially if you are short on time, it is well worth it to do it right by taking a private tour. Ours was great!!"

* A traveler said: "Chiara was our tour guide and she was fabulous! She was very knowledgeable and informative — she gave us more information than our brains could hold! Our tour was an all day tour that included a trip to Siena, San Gimignano - which included a stop at a beautiful winery called Tenuta Torciano for lunch and wine-tasting, and finally, Pisa. Chiara knew the answer to every question we asked her throughout the day, and she went above and beyond her duties as a tour guide to make sure we had the best experience possible. Thank you Chiara and Viatour for helping make our trip to Italy a dream vacation! Moretti Family California, USA"
