    Something for everyone
    Cristina was a wonderful tour guide for our family, aged 7 to 70. She immediately engaged with our granddaughter and won her over with her kindness. She shared much interesting history along with some legends and lore as we walked around Florence. The scavenger hunt was fun for our young one. We all agreed she was the perfect guide and highly recommend her.

    Worst Service Ever
    We booked a tour directly with this outfit. In fairness, I inadvertently entered an incorrect email when I made the reservation. When realized my mistake I reached out to their help desk. The desk for back to me several hours later, found the booking, confirmed who, when and where to meet. We had several back and forths, so to speak. The night before the tour we hit a WhatsApp message from one of the local guides noting he was sick with flu and had to cancel. He also noted that he assumed Withlocals would reach out and assign a new guide. Oddly, this person, Zeynap, was not even supposed to be our guide. A lady named Valentina was supposed to be. We never heard from Withlocals. We went to the meet up spot, sent several messages to Withlocals and Valentina (who was designated in our confirm as the person who was supposed to be our guide) via either the official help email or on the App. Never heard from Valentina either. Amazingly, when I reached out to Zeynap this morning, he offered to reach out to the company. Anyway, use this outfit and/or hire Valentina in Florence at your own risk.

    Zeynep is a joy of a guide!
    Zeynep's knowledge and passion for the city shines through her masterful storytelling of history that makes it engaging and memorable. My husband and I along with our adult children were dialed into everything Zeynep had to share and she showed us places we never would have gone to on our own. Next time we're in Florence, I hope she is still working to show us around places we didn't get to the first time.

    Great way to begin our time in Florence
    We met Marco for our tour of the Uffizi on our first full day in Florence, and we could not have had a better beginning to our travels. Marco opened up not only the treasures of the gallery but also the Renaissance world and the interplay of so many factors of this dynamic time and its reflections in art. He was welcoming, articulate, enthusiastic, and insightful - we felt genuinely invited to engage before and during our tour. The four of us travelling together have different experiences and backgrounds, yet we all felt our morning with Marco added meaning to other sites in Florence and throughout our continued journeys. Superb experience!

    Wonderful introduction to Florence
    Cristina was a wonderful guide. She is personable, knowledgeable, and super helpful. Our first day in Florence would not have been the success it was without her. She also provided some fantastic recommendations for the rest of our stay. We will definitely book a tour with Cristina the next time we visit Florence.

    Great Tour!
    Martina is a delight! She's very well informed, charming, and definitely lots of fun. She was also very helpful with a return we needed to make at one of the shops. We had a wonderful time with our new friend, Martina.

    Fascinating and insightful history tour
    Laura is extremely knowledgeable, full of fascinating stories about the historic families of Florence. It wasn't our first time in Florence and we've read guide books, but Laura was able to tell us much more, and more interesting things than dry facts. She is very personable and it was a pleasure to spend the time with her; we highly recommend this tour, so pleased we chose it. Thank you Laura

    Private Tour - Medici history and highlights in Florence
    I selected Cristina from her bio. Since I had been to Florence a few time I was looking for a customized tour for my friend and I. Cristina was so personable and welcoming. The way she shared her knowledge was both entertaining and informative. I loved just wandering the streets as she shared the history about each place. I learned/saw so many new things. The lunch spot she recommended is now one of my favorites. When I go again I will be booking another tour with Cristina.

    Great guide in Florence
    We (family of 2 adults and 2 girls age 10 and 13) had a great time with Cristina! She's really a kind person with a lot of knowledge of Florence but more important very easy going and entertaining!

    We had a great tour and would recommend the tour but more importantly Federica is the guide to choose. Great information and so open with information. We have her scheduled for another tour later.

    Wonderful time with Vesela!
    My family and I had a really great time exploring Florence with Vesela. She patiently answered our questions (many) and warmly shared her knowledge. At the end of our tour we felt like we had made a new friend! We highly recommend Vesela!!

    Locals as Tour Guides - HIGH recommend
    Zeynep Arzu was the BEST informative and personal guide for our walking tour of Florence. Zeynep went above and beyond sharing her history knowledge of the charming city of Florence to include many architectural details of the homes of the ancient families palaces, and a most excellent dinner recommendation. I highly recommend Zeynep for your personalized walkabout in Florence. ♥️🇮🇹

    Florence private tour with Zeynep was amazing!
    I spent the afternoon with Zeynep learning about the history, art and culture of Florence. Spending the afternoon with Zeynep was such an amazing way to explore Florence, and I visited places that I certainly would not have seen had I been on my own. Zeynep's passion for Florence was undeniable. She was so knowledgeable and FUN! By the end of our time together, I felt as though I had made a new friend.

    Fantastic Florence with Francesco
    This was the most fantastic experience. The weather was terrible and Francesco kept my kids engaged the whole time. He was very giving of his time and expertise and his local knowledge. He showed us hidden gems of Florence that we would otherwise have never seen. A must book tour for adults if you want to learn more about photography and get a nice souvenir from your trip. And a must do with kids for a unique engaging tour.

Elisabetta was absolutely brilliant! We tried all the things we wanted to try and some things we hadn’t heard of. She spoke to us about the different seasonal foods and the origins of different foods. It was just brilliant and Elisabetta was wonderful. Not only did we learn about the history of the foods but she also had great insight into the history of Florence and the different buildings - a real highlight of our holiday!

We loved our food tour with Stefania. She showed us several different spots in Florence with great bites and also spent some time talking about the history of the city. It was great spending time with a local and getting to talk about and know more about Italian life.

After having been in Florence for a few days already, I wasn't sure how much more we'd learn from a food tour, but everything Matteo showed us was new and informative and he took us to areas of the city we had never been before! He was an amazing guide--incredibly friendly and incorporated his knowledge from being a chef. We actually recommended him to folks we met later on our travels in Italy who were headed to Florence. Highly recommend for anyone who loves food, even if they think they're already an expert!

This tour was so much fun! We did this on the first day of our vacation so we could familiarize with the city. Our guide, Tomasso, was THE BEST!! He asked us a what our preferences were and if we liked to be adventurous to try new things, or stay with things more familiar to us. We love adventure, so he took us to the best places to try things we don’t have at home. Along the way he told us about many historical facts about Florence, which he knows well since he has lived here his whole life. We passed through an open market where he even showed us how to bargain with the vendor for a great pair of sandals I really liked! He was really a sweet guy and we really enjoyed our tour with him. 100% recommend, and do this early in your trip so you can go to the many places they will share with you to make the most out of the rest of your time there.

I wish I could give a good review. I was SOOO excited for this tour on our first night in Florence. However, our guide cancelled our tour 2 days beforehand without giving us other options of days/times that would work. I could rebook in their website for an extra 40 euros. Super disappointed in how this was handled. I get things come up, but they made it clear that if I had cancelled that close to the tour I would lose $$&

We arrived on the train at 3:30, and had arranged a 5:00 tour with Maka, thinking it would help orient us to the city and we were not disappointed! Maka was outgoing, generous with her time, knowledgeable about the city and about the foods and wines we were tasting. The olive oils and the white truffles were my favorites. Many thanks to With Locals and to Maka for an amazing first evening in Florence.

Our guide was fantastic - thanks Christy!! She spoke like she grew up in the US Midwest. She took her time, explained the history behind some sights and the city, shared some of her story, asked about ours, and gave us her attention. There were 8 family members on this walking tour. The food at each stop was truly amazing. I would highly recommend the 10 Tastings of Florence with Locals Private walking tour. We went in the afternoon from 1 to 4:30pm on our first day. It gave us a feel for the layout of the city and we got recommendations from our guide for places to eat for the rest of our trip.

Not really knowing what to expect, we totally enjoyed our experience with Christy. We were hesitating between a typical sightseeing or a food tour and got both in one and Christy knows how to put a personal touch to it. Even though we asked a LOT of questions about the food and the history of the city; Christy knew all the answers and had many interesting stories and anecdotes to tell, taking you to some very interesting places you will otherwise never discover as a tourist. Needless to say that we highly recommend her! Just a tip; don't have breakfast or lunch before going on the tour because you will get plenty of food to taste!

Tommaso was great with our family group of 8 on a really hot July evening! We loved the sandwiches, bakery, market and the wine window. He was very knowledgable and easy to talk to and explained about how Italians eat (what and when). This tour and Tommaso was a crowd pleaser for our group of older teens, young adults and us parents! Would 100% recommend Tommaso and this tour… you learn so much more with a guide and can just follow them around!

My husband and I had a great day with Axel walking around Florence eating and drinking. We enjoyed sweet and saviour treats as well as coffee and wine. He was very knowledgeable about the places we visited, the city and the food. We found places we would not have found if we did not take this tour. We highly recommend doing this tour which took us on both sides of the river. Great tour! Do not have breakfast before you start this tour!!
