I think Freya must have trained/worked with Artviva. On old post it says that she worked for them?

Caftours.com the oldest and most reliable incoming service in Florence. They were well-known long before internet came along. Their website is a bit too busy but the range of their excursions is pretty wide.

we were not happy with caftours

the tour portion was okay but they wasted so much of our time otherwise

they are cheap compared to most of the others

if you have extra time to stand and wait, it could work for you

Yes, Foulard, I've noticed that, too........and Cybele is always extolling the virtues of Freya!

Personally, I can't see why you would need a guide to walk you through the city, just do your homework, be armed with a decent guidebook and enjoy everything at your own pace.........and don't be afraid of getting a bit lost - there are interesting things to discover around almost every corner.

Yes, Foulard, he is. He turned a great vacation in Florence into an enriching experience that we won't forget. I think someone capable of that is worth extolling.

Ladybracknell, I don't want to imagine what it is you're trying to get at. If I give it any thought I could even be offended, and I don't want to ruin my Sunday. That said, it doesn't really matter that you can't see why anyone would need a guide as that was not the OP's question. The person was asking for a good walking tour in English. I provided my advice. Am I wrong or isn't that what this forum is about?
