Awesome and highly recommended!

I used the Art Viva services while in Florence for two tours, The Uffizi Gallery and the Academia Gallery. Because I went in a low season I was the only client and the company still went through with the service, thank you! I had the best tour guild that I could ever hope for! Her name was Elizabeth. She was knowledgeable, fun to be with, very well informed and broke down the pieces and art history in a way that was artful in and of itself. I give the tour service and specifically Elizabeth a 100% A+ and recommend this group all the way. I had a great experience, thank you so much!!

Great tour, Stefan was the best

If you are going to Florence this tour is a must, Volterra is amazing "town in the clouds", and without all the tourists. Stefan made the tour absolutely fantastic and it was the highlight of our holidays.

Inspiring and Fun!

We did the Florence in One Glorious Day. Worth every moment. Klaus entertained, inspired and excited us with his knowledge, delivery and communication. He gave us 'big picture' history and 'little picture' stories, putting humanity into the architecture. Just excellent. Liz helped us enjoy the Uffizi and Accademia with her art knowledge and insight. Both great tour guides. Next time, we'll be back!

Perfect Morning in Tuscany was Truly Perfect

On our last day in Florence we wanted to go off the beaten path. This tour was perfect - hiking, history and beautiful scenery. We can't say enough about our tour guide Stefano - he was exceptionally knowledgeable, accommodating and very personable. By the end of the tour, we felt like we'd spent the morning with a friend. The tour included a delicious lunch at a villa with gorgeous views and great company. We highly recommend requesting Stefano for your tour and lunch.

The Orginal Best of Tuscany

Went to Italy for first time for my 40th Birthday... We did the Best of Tuscany tour on our last day.Everything about the trip was amazing! When we first arrived, the ladies in the office were very friendly and helpful! We all met, on time with the minibus waiting for us.Our tour guide, Stephon, was great, knowledgeable and entertaining. The location stops were breathtaking and the tour/lunch of the winery exceeded my expectations. I would recommend tours from ArtViva to anyone!

Excellent, highly knowledgeable and professional

I am currently in Italy and last week was in Florence where I used their services for four tours: First Original Florence Walk, then Masterpieces of the Uffizi Gallery, Original David Academia Tour and last Best of Tuscany with Volterra. I cannot say enough good things about them. The guides were native English speakers, they were highly knowledgeable and experienced about their subject, and all were very pleasant and helpful. None of the groups I was in last week were very big the largest about 13 or 14. When there was a larger group they split it in half and brought in another guide. They used a radio type communication device in all but one of these groups which worked extremely well for me, since I have a hearing problem and wear hearing aides. The "Best of Tuscanny with Volterra" tour had only three participants even though the minimum states at leasts four. It was the best tour of their offerings and all were great. This is the best company I have used in all my traveling.

Two tours with Klaus - David and the walking tour of Florence, one with Helen - Uffizi, and a day in Tuscany with Stephan were all absolutely superb. They were totally knowledgeable, attentive, and timely. We had heard of your company from a colleague. Her recommendation of excellence was totally accurate, and we will be more than happy to pass your name to others whenever possible.

@accidental_chef @kittenwithawhip True! Tuscany has Lardo di Colonnata - herb-infused, aged in marble. Have u tried? Delicious! Not low-fat.
