Francesco, our tour guide was amazing and very knowledgeable about Italian arts and history. We enjoyed his knowledge and a passion for arts. We were a group of four and he was very approachable to everyone. I recommend him and his tour to anyone who is looking for learning arts in Florence, history and interesting stories. Another good thing about the tour was Francesco sent us a cell number to call in case in advance and I could use it when I had a difficulty in finding him in crowds. Francesco, thank you for your great guide.

Our guide Francesco was amazing, this was truly the best tour that we ever had ! We spend fife hours with him, and it went so fast. He is vary knowledgeable, and full of fascinating stories about art and history of Florence, he replayed on all our conversation, and was very friendly to spend day with. Thank you Francesco so much !
Also we loved our experience with Babylon agency, they are very professional, very efficient in organizing our booking. We would absolutely recommend Babylon and Francesco, do not hesitate!

Our guide, Annette, was outstanding. She was extremely knowledgeable and very personable.
Her passion throughout the tour was contagious.
We learned so much from her, that when we tour museums in the future, we are able to enjoy them so much more. Understanding differences from
The 1300s to the 1500s, paintings completed by two artists, etc. We very highly recommend booking Annette!

Wow! We are well travelled and often take private tours in destinations that are new to us. Francesco was stellar - tops. Francesco was able to weave together the art we viewed with the historical context and interesting stories. His recall was amazing, and he was able to answer all of our questions off-the-cuff, even the obscure questions (and we fact checked a few things after the tour!). His excitement for art and history is contagious, and the tour flew by. I'm planning on bringing family back to Florence for a visit - Francesco will definitely be a part of those plans.

This tour delivered on providing 5-5 1/2 hrs of Florence highlights, Accademia, & Uffizi. Just what we wanted, so very satisfied with the content of the tour design. What made the tour exception was our guide Viola. She is passionate about art history, insightful to Florence history (legends and facts) of people, architecture, politics. She provided an experience for us which simplified decomposing works of art into understanding meaning and thought behind just the visual you saw (we are not “artsy” by nature). Her nature is fun and light, and we had an exceptional enjoyable day!
