We had such a good time with Hayko on electric bikes. We were able to see many parts of the city in a short period of time and Hayko was great at pointing out highlights that we should come spend more time at. We thought Hayko was knowledgable and had the best personality for a tour guide. Highly recommend!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks a lot guys I had a great time with you too! Hope to see you soon in Memphis Take care

Date: May 14/19

Hayko was a perfect fit for our family, which includes three young adults (25, 22 & 20). It was our first morning in Florence. We requested two things: great coffee and a "lay of the land," which meant give us some history of the city but keep it relatable. Hayko came through on all fronts. He was humorous, knowledgeable, and full of anecdotes and good tips (favorite street food vendor, great place for Florentine steak). Our Accademia visit at the end was again just right—he really brought David to life.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks guys! Appreciate that a lot!!! Hope you are doing great! Take care and I'll see you soon Hayko

Wonderful introduction to Florence art, culture and history. Hayko was extremely accommodating to our needs, friendly, funny and a great story teller. We were four women from America on our first trip to Italy. Our trip will have so much more meaning after our tour experience. Highly recommend!

Hayko is a fantastic tour guide! We were running late and he set a relaxed tone by treating us to coffee and discussing life in Florence. His pace was excellent and never hurried. Hayko had numerous stories to tell about Florence. He got us skip the line tickets at the Accademia and Uffizi, and his knowledge of art runs very deep. We got a great walking tour of Florence and he even treated us to a surprise. We got a great flavor of Florence during the tour. We highly recommend Hayko!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Hey Marcus! Good to hear from you again guys! Thanks for such warm words, I appreciate that a lot. Hope you are doing great and hope to see you soon. Thanks Hayko

Hayko gave us two tours full of interesting stories and knowledge about Florence and Italy. He has a down-to-earth way to transmit history and art, keeping two teenage girls interested all along. He is the guide of choice if you look for a person with lots of life experience able to bridge the present and the past, while giving you a good time. Thank you, Hayko!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thanks Dimitrios! Great honor meeting you! We'll keep in touch and I'll see you soon. Take care Hayko

The tour with Hayko was a highlight of our 10 day trip to Italy. In hindsight we would have booked multiple tours with Hayko. Prior to our visit, he offered to help us book transfers, and actually emailed us the night we arrived in Florence to check to see if we needed anything and that we got in OK. The whole family (2 adults and 3 children) loved Hayko, he was engaging, knowledgeable and passionate and just a joy to be around. If you are booking tours on his list don't hesitate to use him.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much for your kind words. It truly was a pleasure to meet you and I am so happy you enjoyed the tour. I look forward to meeting your friends when they come to visit. I hope to see you and your family soon as well. Take care. Hayko

Hayko was absolutely fantastic!! We had limited time for our tour and he made sure to make the most of it for us. We were able to see the David and visit many other famous locations, as well as try local food and wine. Hayko was incredibly knowledgeable about the history of Florence and made our tour very memorable. He even walked us to the train station and gave us a parting gift! Thank you so much for a wonderful day!

Hayko's tour is the best way to visit Cinque Terre! He accompanies you through four charming towns and purchases all tickets for the ferries and train. He is fun, patient, and knowledgeable. I had difficulty navigating steps, yet he looked out for me and assisted me at every point. He planned little tasting portions of each town which added to learning the culture of each place. For a little extra, he took us to Pisa to see the tower. We had a very long day, but what a great experience! Thank you!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Sue I'm very grateful for such kind words. A big hug to you and to Brian and Rid! Take care and I hope to see you again one day. P.S. I'll change immediately the activity level:)

A great story teller, with deep knowledge and facts. The walk was beautifully constructed and enlightening & never rushed. Felt like a walk with a local friend, and not a guided tour. He kept my 15 yr old son and 70-yr old mom engaged at the same time. A very warm and friendly person. Made our experience very memorable.

Fluent in English, Hayko is funny and extremely knowledgeable! He told us (family of 5 - ages between 13 and 62), so many captivating stories (some of long ago crazy revenge). My husband knows history and was impressed with Hayko's precise knowledge. You will not be bored and will not regret this tour. This was one of the highlights of our 2 week trip, and well worth the money. We wish we could have taken him to every city we visited! Thanks, Hayko!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: You're so sweet:) Thanks guys, I appreciate that very much! A big hug to all of you! Hope to see you again one day. Take care Hayko

We had the pleasure of having Hayko as our tour guide in Florence, and he was amazing. His knowledge of history, art, and culture was quite impressive, and he is a pleasure to learn from. It was my son's birthday and Hayko made a celebration of the day, as well as making us reservations at a great restaurant that night. The ability to see so much of the city by bike was also a treat!

Hayko is one of the best guides we have ever had! His tour of the Uffizi was perfect for our needs as he tailored it to the highlights of the collection and kept our kids engaged with interesting side stories about the art. He got us around the lines and went above and beyond by providing additional advise for other sites and excursions. Don't hestitate to book with Hayko!
