Gina was wonderful, her knowledge of the growing of grapes and olives was so good we thought she worked at the villa and were surprised that she was a tour guide. Unfortunately she had her bag stolen from her car that afternoon, we all felt so sorry for her and only hope she is able to recover some of her... More

I took this tour on Nov 14. I was on a train between Rome and Bologna and made the stop to tour the city. I left my luggage at the train station and easily found the meeting point. The tour was well organized and took us through the Statue of David, the Duomo as well as the Ponte Vecchio Bridge.... More

On our first night in Florence we decided to do the dinner at a Tuscan Villa and it did not disappoint. We met our drivers near the train station and the group of 10 piled into 2 vans to head over. It was only a 15 minute drive or so. The villa was BEAUTIFUL! Our guide Giulia was so much... More

I had previously gone on several daytime tours of Florence, but this tour opened up a whole new side of the city to me. Our guide (the wonderful Valentina) has a gift for storytelling and helping history come alive. I could really imagine what life was like in Renaissance Florence as I listened to her stories. At one point, we... More

Excellent way to start your experience in Florence. Valentina filled us with vivid stories of days gone by in a FUN and engaging manner. She is an educated historian who made the high speed 2 hour trek through the streets of Florence delightful, especially under a full moon in October. Stopping to chat at historical spots, museums, bridges, churches, and... More

I used to avoid tours but not any longer. I realized how much I missed by not taking them. When you have an amazing tour guide like Federica Fedbus showing you all over Florence it is as if I bonded with the city. I knew it's intricacies and history. Do yourself a favor and take this tour!

I chose City Wonders because my wife and I are not up to hiking and walking the national park. It was good we wanted to avoid the hiking because it was raining the day we went on the tour. The guide Simona was excellent and her English was impeccable. She provided very interesting information on the way to Porto Venere,... More

The tour surpassed my expectations. The guides provided not only great historical background on the works of art but also the history of Italy, Tuscany, Florence, the important people in history and a guided tour of areas in the old city of Florence to visit and know about (shopping, eating, entertainment, events, history like the great floods, and culture -...
