This was a great chance to discover a piece of Tuscany in a fascinating and relaxing way. We strolled through the woods and in every corner we were told interesting stories and facts about the various plants we found.

I truly enjoyed my art class in Florence!! The art instructor was a wonderful teacher. I hope to do a class with her in the future.
Learn to Paint or Sculpt – Art Class Florence

Laura and Frank are two of the kindest and talented people. They were generous with the skill sharing and both encouraged and developed my daughters art techniques. At 19 and 17 it can at times be hard to keep them happy. But these lovely people managed to do so. I just wish we had known about this sooner. Two words to sum up absolutely marvellous.

This tour was a splurge for us, and I’m so glad we did it! The first time I visited Florence (thirty years ago), I was in awe of the art and architecture. I came back with my family all these years later and wanted to understand more about what I was seeing. Ricardo provided the most interesting commentary about the history and personalities of the artists and innovators who shaped this amazing city. We learned about Michelangelo’s teacher, how the Medici’s got to work, and how the arch evolved. He pointed out the wine doors from which residents sold wine in earlier times, and he introduced us to the work of a modern artist who brightens the streets of Florence today. The tour was a joy! I wish I could have taken a week (or more) of tours like this one. See you next time we are in Firenze! Thank you!!
Early Morning Florence Tour – Original Florence Walk

Artviva is a fantastic company to work with. They go above and beyond. We had some issues getting from our cruise boat to the the meeting point and Artviva continued to work with us and connect us with our guide. Once we arrived, the tour was fantastic. Our guide Alessandro was very knowledgeable, informative and accommodating. I would book with Artviva again in a minute.

All in our party enjoyed our Galileo tour. It was informative and all questions about exhibits were well answered.
Galileo Galilei Science Museum Tour-Florence
S. Anderson – 23/07/2019
We did this as a private tour since we’re a family of 5 (kids 20, 18 & 15). Spent an amazing day with our guide Eleanora and excellent driver Florian seeing Siena, a neat small winery for a tasting, and San Gimignano. Picked up at our apartment in Florence in a nice clean Mercedes van, we headed to Siena, while Ella provided a great background of the area and it’s history en route. Ella studied in Siena and knew what highlights to see during our time there. Lunch and wine tasting at I Balzini were excellent. Spent some time with the owner/winemaker learning about his wine and got a tour of the grounds and bought a case which was promptly shipped back to the US. Ended the day walking thru San Gimingano. All said a great day spent with an excellent guide. Definitely recommend this and would do it again.

MANOLIS’ tour was very informative & fun! I’m still not sure if he left us in peratory, limbo or heaven! He was easy to understand. You can tell he enjoys his job! It was great to have a smaller group. We will use his tour group again when we return to Florence! I have already recommended the tour company.

Loved our tour and guide. Mariogesù was fabulous!! Entertaining, informative and interactive. This was our first time using Artviva – We have done several European museum and city tours with another operator, but will look to use Artviva in the future.
