Perfect way to get to know Florence

Do this running tour shortly after arrival in Florence. The running guide shows and tells you about the Highlights.

By far one of my favorite things we did. They bike ride was fantastic, the views were breathtaking (or maybe the other way around, lol), and the tour guide, Ella, was my favorite. I highly recommend this tour for people who want to see more, move around a bit, and try some very yummy wine and olive oil.

Florence is beautful

The tours were great! It was a long day tho, so if you are someone who needs time and breaks I would do it in two days. Everyone was very knowledgable and friendly! I very much so recommend this package

Great way to explore Florence

I couldn't recommend this more! If you are looking for a fantastic way to see the city without the crowds, I highly recommend this tour. Marco, the guide, is incredibly knowledgable on the history of Florence and will give you just general tips along the way (best gelato, wine, etc). If you enjoy running and a good tour of a beautiful city, this tour is for you!

Not your average tour company! I dealt with a very professional, friendly, and efficient office in Florence to arrange a tour of the Uffizi and a walking tour in Rome. Both were fantastic. Klaus (sp?) led the former and Francesco led the latter. Each was intelligent, articulate, and had deep knowledge of all we were seeing. Groups are kept small, you do not follow a flag. As an experienced traveler I am generally really leery of organized tours, but these guys were amazing. I really felt like I had a personal friend showing me around. If your time in either Florence or Rome is limited, Art Viva tours are essential -- skipping the lines is hugely important. But the genuine interaction with someone who knows the city/sight and who is passionate about sharing their knowledge with you is what matters most.

We did a private Florence walk and Accademia tour with Hilda (from Belgium). She was wonderful! We were travelling with family that lives in Germany and who had been to Florence many times and they felt this tour made their return visit so worthwhile! We also had three kids (10 to 14) with us and they loved it and didn't want it to end. We learned so many interesting facts and our guide didn't miss a beat! Highly recommend.

Uffizzi tour no other

We went on the tour in June 1015, from the beginning the guide and her passion for the gallery and its artists, paintings and masterpieces shone through and had you drawn in wonder. The other couple we were with were won over as they were not lovers of the arts. I say in all sincerety that I am pleased we did the tour and learned some of the unknown specifics behind each works, cannot get that in a book to readily (pun not intended). We highly recommend this tour rather than go individually, in fact look at the feedback from the travel blogs, this is the one tour to do. I will return.

Skip this tour- Guide was horrible

This is a tour you would want to skip. Tour guide was very overwhelmed by her group. As the tour continued she became increasingly more rude to the guests. After requesting to sit down in an adjoining room- the tour guide said no and yelled at me for wanting to sit. When I returned my headset to her- she responded in her microphone: IT IS BETTER TO LOSE YOU THAN TO HAVE YOU IN MY GROUP. This was sadly not her first outburst. At the start of the tour- the group requested a bathroom break, ( the meeting office wouldn't permit use of their bathroom and the wait to gain entry was approx. 30 min.) the guide made snide comments to the group about guests using the facilities. The guide, Tatiana, was not equipped to handle a 20-25 member tour. I have taken several tours in Italy during my many visits and have NEVER encountered an issue. Not only was the guide rude, but she completed omitted several rooms of art during the beginning of the tour. Skip this tour as the guide will ruin your experience.

The run-down of My Exclusive The Best of Tuscany Tour:

The My Exclusive Best of Tuscany is an 9-hour tour visiting three charming medieval towns in Tuscany, being Siena, San Gimignano and Monteriggione. To make the most of your time, your private tour guide will discuss the history and highlights of each hill town throughout the journey between the towns as you take in the beautiful and aptly-famous Tuscan landscape passing by. It is also possible to stop for photo opportunities in particularly scenic locations.

Once arrived in each town, you will have free time to wander. Your guide can point out the best places to visit artisan studios, buy traditional local products from the local producers, taste the best gelateria in town, or to simply sit and enjoy a glass of wine whilst 'people watching'.

Some typical items to purchase in Siena, San Gimignano and Monteriggioni include locally-produced ceramics, paintings from one of the many local artist studios plus delicious food items including salami, cheese, sweets (particuarly Siena's famous Panforte). Your tour guide can indicate their favourites if you wish! Artviva as a policy accepts no commissions from shops so we are free to recommend the very best to you.

You'll also be taken to a traditional Tuscan estate to enjoy a typical Tuscan lunch of quality products produced in Tuscany. There you will be given an introduction to Tuscan wine plus wine tasting and olive oil tasting. The estate also has a great selection of wines and olive oils for purchase as well.
