This was my first trip to Italy and I am so very glad I booked the ArtViva Florence in One Glorious Day tour. GLORIOUS it was!!!! My friend and I so enjoyed the entire day. We both especially LOVED our guide Brenda who took us on the walking tour of Florence. She was so out-going, warm and knowledgeable. Her explanations of the history and her little stories and anecdotes made for such a thoroughly enjoyable morning. Brenda had that special little spark to her personality that made the day shine. Our guides for the Uffizi Gallery and the Original David tours were both excellent. They were extremely knowledgeable in the art history, but also in the culture of the times. I definitely recommend ArtViva tours to all who will be traveling to Italy and hope to tour other areas of Italy with them whenever I can make a return visit.
