    By far the best guided tour we had on the trip. This was our 4th. We did 2 in Rome and one in Venice. I forgot the guide's name, I think it was Analia. She was very enthusiastic and kept a very good energy level.

    Just wanted to send a review back and let you know how really enjoyed our tours.

    In Florence, our guide was fantastic – Antonia, I think. She was our guide all day and we really enjoyed her and very easy to understand, she gave us a lot of great information, but made sure not to overload us, it was just right.

    In Rome, we had a great guide as well, a little bit more difficult to understand, but still very good. I can’t recall her name right now, it is at home, but she was really great, too. She walked at a nice pace and gave us a lot of good information as well.

    In Venice, our tours were great as well. Our guide was very good, just like the others. Nothing negative to say about any of them.

    I am really glad that we booked the tours, it made our trip much better. I would definitely recommend Avventure Bellissime to others.
    Job well done!

    We were a group of 4.
    We had a fantastic experience - our guide Antonella was warm and friendly and very knowledgeable about Florence and the history. Antonella provided us with insights and showed us a Florence we would never have been able to discover on our own.The audio packs meant we were all able to hear her clearly even while on the move. The small Size of the group also made it a very personalised tour with plenty of opportunities to ask questions. (We noticed many other guided tour groups were significantly larger).


    We had a wonderful experience and would not hesitate to recommend these walking tours.
