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

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.
