  1. Heather Pigott

    Our family of five had a private tour with Irena and she was fantastic. So knowledgeable but also very relatable – the whole family loved her. My teenage boys were not exactly looking forward to another tour but Irena kept their attention

  2. Karon Ferrara

    We booked a private tour for a group of four because we didn’t have enough time to do separate tours and were in Florence over a Monday when many museums are closed. Molly, our guide, held degrees in art history, so she was perfect for the task. She led us through the Uffizzi Gallery and Academia to see Michelangelo’s David. Her expertise made it worth every penny. This is my fifth time to use ArtViva tours. I wouldn’t risk choosing another company because these guides have been so knowledgable.
