Hayko G.

FIRENZE, FI, Italy

Hello everyone! Pleased to meet you, my name is Hayko.

I'm an expert guide in Florence and Tuscany. I speak fluently in Italian, English and Russian. I've been in the business for about 5 years, so I've already had my baptism of fire ;)

So let me guide you through the millennial history of the most magnificent city in the world. . . Florence!
The Athens of Italy, the birthplace of Renaissance, the homeland of the greatest artists, poets and scientists.
I belive that Florence is like a capricious woman, which needs time and patients to open herself to you. . .
Therefore my job is to make you fall in love with Florence, so you'll keep returning innumerable times, because you'll never have enough.

The "Art of Guiding" is not all about the knowledge of arts, artists, techniques and dates (you can get a book for that and save quite a lot of money!). Being a guide is a life time studying and discovering, so the Real Art of Guiding is about delivering with passion the "Cream of the Crop" - that no touristic book will tell you, and the most important - using the humor as punctuation. Because after all, YOU, my friends are on vacation and you must have fun.

So my goal, as your humble guide, is to make your trip memorable and the years of experience showed that I'm pretty good on it.

Cheers!

A Recent Review of this guide

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.
