Excellent guide for kids!

Our guide was amazing with our 6 and 7 year old kids! She brought us around the small town of Florence and showed us the sights. No part of the tour brings you into any buildings, museums, or cathedrals. It's a good tour to start your Florence vacation with, because it gives you an idea of what you'd like to see more of later.

My girls loved their adventure through Florence with Rachele! She was patient, kind, and fun with my 4 and 1 year olds. We had the best gelato too! We recommend this tour to anyone with kids because regular walking tours can get boring for them. This was something extra special that allowed the adults to see the city as well.

Family tour in the center of Florence

Our three kids loved the tour! Ilaria Perini (our guide) was great, she caught their attention, and the kids enjoyed the whole tour ( although of different age 4, 7 and 12 years old). From the moment we met her, we felt welcomed and in a friendly environment. The scenery was beautiful and we got a lot of new information (although we had previously visited Florence). We really recommend this tour to other families with young kids like ours.

Perfect Afternoon!

We have 4 girls (ages 5, 9, 9 and 11) and we met Rachelle for this tour at 2 in the afternoon. This was the first thing we did when we got to Florence, and it was a great way to start our visit. The tour was private, with just our family. Rachelle showed us all the popular spots and gave us plenty of time to see what we wanted to. She was great with the kids of all ages. She took our 5 year olds hand while walking to make sure there were no incidents with cars, but talked to the other kids at their more grown up level. She did a great job using the points system to keep the kids entertained and to create a little friendly competition between parents and kids. I loved that the points sort of recapped and ensured they soaked in the history. They were so interested in the history that they even forgot about the points at some times. I definitely recommend this trip. I loved where it ended, leaving us easy access to the leather market and to eat at San Lorenzo, but we were also able to walk back to the Duomo for our 6pm tour there.

Finally a tour that my child was excited about! It made a big difference to have a tour leader who knew how to engage and interact with a child! Rachele was very energetic, and my daughter had fun following her clues! I definitely recommend this tour for families with kids. The only difficulty we had is that we thought the tour would end in the San Lorenzo market. We didn't end up there, however. I asked the tour leader how to get there, and she pointed the direction out, but we ended up getting really lost. I wish she had taken us there. The tour ended early, so I am not sure why the tour leader did not walk us to San Lorenzo market. Other than that issue, the tour was great!

Our children are teenagers and were made to feel unwanted by the guide who made comments when we first met such as they are not kids and by not providing a clip board to my kids for the scavenger hunt. As indicated when I booked, my kids were 13 and 15. There was no indication that this would not be appropriate for them.
