It was a great way for our group of four to get to know Florence. Our guide Valentina Bassi was so knowledgeable and personable. In our 2.5 hours we were able to see David and some of the art work in the Academia, walk through the Duomo, and walk around the old town learning about Michelangelo, Dante, and a host of other key people in the history of Italy and Florence. The format was great for us, and Valentino made it even better they way she adjusted the tour based on the things we wanted to see.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you all very much :) Hope you had a great time during the rest of your holiday!! Vale

We are a group of 5 couples on vacation from the US. This morning we had the pleasure of taking a walking tour in Florence led by Valentina Bassi that included many points of interest in the area near our hotel (Hotel degli Orafi), and a visit to the Accademia to see Michelangelo's "David" and other treasures. We enjoyed Valentina's excellent and thorough commentary. She was engaging and delightful. I recommend Valentina Bassi without reservation - superb!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you David, I had a great time with you all! Last night I passed by the torture museum in San Gimignano and thought of you :) pls tell everyone I said hi, Vale

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much, it has been a lovely afternoon in Florence with you!
Valentina is an knowledge guide and congenial. Our children ages 6 12 and 13 were very engaged by her commentary and she was extremely helpful and accommodating. When my sister-in-law and niece joined the group last minute she was able to get them tickets into the Accademia in Florence last minute as well as help us get tickets for the Uffizi Gallery the next day. I wish we could have booked her for every day we had in Florence. Molto Bene!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you :) It was a pleasure meeting you and taking you around!!! Ciao vale

Valentina was fantastic. The tour was amazing - it was lovely to be shown round Florence by someone with so much knowledge and an obvious lover of the subject. Everyone should book a tour with Valentina. We loved every minute of the tour, especially David at The Academia. The statue alone is superb, however with Valentina to explain the history of this tremendous work of art, we were bowled over. If only there was a rating higher than 5 stars.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Melanieee! Thank you so much for this beautiful review. :) As i told you i had a great time with you and i hope you'll have a safe journey back home, ciao!

Valentina's tour was excellent, covering the important and interesting parts of town, with a healthy balance on history, current affairs, and geography. Valentina is quite knowledgeable and friendly, having designed the tour really well, but also willing to spend time our questions and interests during the tour.

Brings renaissance Florence to life! Terrific guide.
