What visitors think about Free Florence Walking Tour?

Sujatha Dasari
Eleanor or Ella as she likes to be called, was our tour guide. This is not your usual tour with seeing only the famous places. But actually a tour where we see some of the hidden gems of Florence. She had a fun way of showcasing the history of the city and made us aware as to how the city has changed through time. As Ella is Florentine she has a lived experience of the city which she shared with us. There were also two food tasting stops, with tips about local cuisine.

We took this walking tour on our first morning in Florence. Natalia our tour guide gave us an insight into Florence we would not have seen and she gave us recommended places to visit whilst we were there, that we would not have known about. It was a full two hour tour and fortunately for us only 6 people on it .I would recommend this tour, Natalia was a lovely pleasant tour guide.

Florence is obviously one of the most beautiful city in Italy. I had a very nice experience from the tour by Another Florence led by Ludi (it was her short name, I forgot the full one). It was an ample pile of information which was fed to us in an imaginative way that kindled interest in me automatically. The best thing is she knew in and out of the city, it's shortcuts and we always stayed in shade at the extreme weather of 35°C.

Frequently asked questions about the tour

Why do you offer free tours? Why do you do it? How do you get funded?

First of all we are in love with Florence! We want to show you our wonderful city, but not the one you can find in common travel books, the one in which we live. We love meeting new people from all around the world and we think that everyone should be permitted to take a guided tour for the price they feel it was worth – even free if you don’t enjoy it. We manage to keep offering tours only thanks to your donations and at the end of the tour each one of you is free to decide the price and the value of it. Our Tour Leaders are freelance professionals so these free tours are part of their job, this is the reason why they pay regular taxes on the donations they receive.

Who are we?

We are Professional Tour Leaders and we all live in this amazing city. All our guides have a degree in different disciplines: Art History, Foreing Languages, Architecture, Sociology, Economics... We have different personalities, different routes, so a different guiding style! However there is an important thing we have in common: our passion for Florence and the desire to share it with you.

Where will you take me?

This is a hard question to answer to! We consider our tours as an artesan product and the reason why there is no list of places you will see, is that each guide has a different approach to the city, so the tours are peculiar. There is no way to know the route in advance (which can change due to the weather or to special events in the city) – take the adventure! Our wish is to show you the most authentic part of the city, away from the crowds and with the eyes of people who live it every day. A sightseeing walk through beautiful streets, amazing squares with their palaces and churches. Since we have many useful hints about what to do after the tour and some precious tips that will help you to feel like a local, we highly recommend participating at this tour on your first day here. You can book more than one of our tours, so please contact us in advance in the way that we are able to let you know if the guide for the tour you are interested for, is the same or not.

Do the tours end where they start?

No, each tour is different from the others and they end in different places. Of course our Tour Leaders will help you to reach any location. Do I need to make a reservation? Yes, booking is necessary. Since we want to provide you the best experience, we need to ensure that the groups remain manageable. Reservations also allow us to advice you of changes in the organization of the tour due to weather or anything else. Our guides can admit walk-up guests at their discretion only if space is available. What if I have to leave before the end? Please, if you have particular necessities let your guide know before the beginning of the tour. Are tours guided in English? Yes, all the tours are guided in English. Our guides speak quite fast because tours are oriented towards advanced level English speakers and since some of the tours are interactive, it’s necessary to have this level of English to participate.

How to find the MEETING POINT?

The email you will receive with the booking confirmation, will provide you the descripiton of the meeting point. The tour starts on exact time, please double check your booking reservation so you will be able to be in the right place at the right time! We highly recommend you to consult Google maps and even to print the map to avoid getting lost. If you are asking information on how to reach the meeting point in your hotel, please specify the name of the square which is indicated as your meeting point. In the past it has happened that some people have been mislead by the concierge, so they have missed the tour because they have been indicated e completely different area.
