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
I had a great time with Hayko. He knows the history and other interesting facts about every place we visited and art we saw. He also treated me to the best ice-cream in Florence. A real gentleman.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: I absolutely enjoyed your company too! Mucha suerte y un gran abrazo!

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.

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:)

Ritika SuriUnited States
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.
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Ritika! Thanks for such kind words! It was my absolute pleasure meeting you. Take care and I hope to see you again. Best wishes

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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you so much guys! Take care! Hope to see you soon in Florence. Cheers
Maria CliffordUnited States
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!
TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Grazie Maria!
