Everybody's Talking...

ArtViva Walking Tours has been around for years- and we're all over the place. From Rick Steve's to Lonely Planet, to internet sites such as TripAdvisor, our tours are constantly being talked about. We pride ourselves on providing excellent customer service, entertaining, informative and fun tours. We care about what our customers think and feedback is essential to us so that we may keep our clients satisfied and coming back for more tours. If you have any questions or would like to give us feedback, don't hesitate to contact us- we welcome any comments or suggestions.

Here's what they've been saying so far...

Original Florence Walk:
The Florence Walking Tour came alive with your tour guide. We had a private tour later on in the day (with another agency) and it was nowhere as good or as factual!

Outstanding presentation with excellent knowledge…most importantly a great sense of humor. The best tour I’ve been on…lot’s of fun.

Very good manner, the right mix of information and history without being overwhelming.

Excellent Job! Clear, precise, informative in her presentation with just the right details! Excellent tour! True taste of Florence, History and Culture!
Excellent. The guide was extremely knowledgeable, entertaining and funny. She brought Florence to life for us. We wish she was leading our tour tomorrow but we trust the new guide will be fabulous as well.

We were taken on two tours: the Uffizi and the Academia. Our guide had a dynamic way of selecting a set of the most interesting pieces and bringing them to life with stories about their history. We were happy to have her for both tours. The tour was great- about the right length for a person with general interest. The audio devices were excellent.

Mornings in Tuscany:
The best! Our guide was funny, helpful, intelligent- charming and handsome!!

A wonderful chance to sample the Tuscan countryside for those of us travelling without a car! Enjoyed the walk, the villa was beautiful and the meal very nice. Our guide was exuberant and entertaining, knowledgeable and fun. We have really enjoyed all the tours so far- keep it up!

I don’t think you could have a better guide than ours! Mornings in Tuscany was everything I hoped it would be. A lovely walk and lunch. I hope to do it again sometime!

Excellent. Thoughtful, entertaining, well informed and good company! The tour was the right length, enough exercise, enough culture!

Excellent tour! I would do it again and recommend it to others! The food-wine tasting was the most enjoyable!

Fantastic! Our guide was excellent! Kept spirits up despite a little bit of rain. The tour was lovely and relaxing, well placed, and a good lunch included!

Taste of Tuscany:
Thoroughly enjoyable and worth the money. Wish I was here to do another one!

Best of Tuscany:
We had a very fun guide! Very informative, Great Suggestions!
A wonderful day- high point was San Gimignano and The Farm. We had a fabulous guide- taught us so much! Wonderful, perfecto!

Our guide was very a joy and pleasant. Very knowledgeable about the area and not a single question he could not answer. Thank you so much. Loved the tour, the winery, the cities.

Our guide was excellent, informed, friendly and very accommodating to individual needs. Once the bus came to pick us up it was fabulous- what amazing towns! We will tell our travel agent to continue recommending this tour and your agency!
Fantastic! Our guide was very knowledgeable about area and historic significance- will book with him again on my return.

We had a fantastic time on the morning walking tour! The meal was second to none. Our guide was a great guide and very knowledgeable. Thank you very much!
Great experience. Relaxing and fun, one of the most enjoyable moments in Florence by far. Guide was knowledgeable and friendly, very conscientious of our safety.

Masterpieces of the Uffizi:
Great Job! Articulate and informative! Passionate…the best guide yet!
The two tours (Original David and Uffizi Tour) were well worth the cost. They provided enough depth to let me learn and see the highlights in very large museums. Otherwise, it would have been truly exhausting & overwhelming as a first time visitor. I would highly recommend your tour to others.

Our tour guide was outstanding. Very enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining. She made the art come alive and brought enough background of the art history and knowledge of the artist to make it extremely fabulous! I can’t think of any way to make it better. Exceptionally well organized and the headsets worked well.
