From the moment we were picked up at the port of La Spezia by our driver and guide for the 2 hour drive things were as great as we could hope. Our guide on the drive was excellent and kept us engaged for the entire ride to Florence. They dropped us off to meet our guide in Florence Tatiana. She was fantastic and took us around the city to see all the amazing things Florence has to offer. We were traveling with 3 kids and she kept their attention and was able to make it interesting for them. The information she gave us went far beyond just describing the sites and made them much more interesting that doing it on our own. I can't say enough great things about how wonderful the excursion was and how much we enjoyed our trip. If we make it back to Florence this would be my first call to arrange another tour.

I actually booked this tour on the basis that it was an "Assassin's Creed" tour, a game that our son very much enjoys playing, and I got the recommendation for this company from Trip Advisor. I didn't expect to be very engaged, thinking we would just be looking at the places that feature in the game. However, we had an absolutely brilliant tour round Florence with Tatiana who really brought the whole thing to life and provided information we would never have found in a guide book.

I am not a tour person, far preferring to go off on my own with a guide book, but we got so much more from going round with Tatiana. We were also exceptionally lucky in having Tatiana all to ourselves so we could ask her any questions we wanted, which was the icing on the cake as it were.

By the time we got to the Palazzo Pitti in Oltrarno on the other side of the river, we had very sore feet and were quite hungry. it was almost the end of our allotted tine so we bade farewell to Tatiana with lots of thanks and went off to find a restaurant for lunch.

Tris tour was suggested by our guide Alessia while we were planning our trip to Florence. We did one hour tour of the center as we didn't know Florence and wanted to see its major squares and monuments. Our guide was very knowledgeble and passionate about Florence! Then we went on a boat trip on the Arno river! It seems that our boat was something like 100 years old and was used by workers transporting sand from the river!!! We were absolutely enthousiastic about this trip: we saw sunset on the water and the city from a different perspective!
Definitely something to do while in Florence! Thank you Alessia for recommending such a lovely tour!

I cannot recomend Alessia enough..... We were met at Florence train station at the arranged time, and were charmed by her pleasant nature and perfect english. We had a walking tour of this delightful city including many interesting insights that only a local would know, she also arranged fast track entry to the Uffizi Museum. Alessia, myself and 2 friends enjoyed a lovely lunch in the Florentine square, under the gaze of the Statue of David. We proceeded to the river Arno where our excluvive boat was waiting for us..... not the motor cruiser that we had imagined but a wooden 100 year old boat with our own oarsman !!! Fantastic... we were the only boat on the river and the envy of all who watched us while we made our way leisurely under the many bridges including the incredible the Ponte Vecchio and views of the many Palaces from the water.
We reluctantly said farewell to Alessia at the end of a magical day in Florence and vowed to return. Would highly recommend.... worth every penny. L,C & J

Alessia Carmignani went above and beyond to ensure our tours were great! We were two families and hired her for private half-day tours of Lucca and Florence - both were fantastic. Both times she arrived early to meet us. She kept us on track and engaged (not easy with kids!) and she helped us make reservations for dinner and explaining to the restaurant that we had two vegetarians and one vegan in our party. In addition, she responded promptly to texts and questions we had. We were all very impressed with Alessia and I would highly recommend her as a guide.
