FAQ's
Is this tour private?
Yes, it is. No one else will be joining your private tour, and you will have your own private guide throughout the visit. However, in some areas such as the Piazza Della Signoria, it can get very crowded during the busy season.
Is there a lot of walking during the tour?
Because our tours are designed for families with children, we make sure the distances are not too long. There are bakeries and ice-cream stores along the way, so you will be able to treat your children to something sweet during the tour if you want. That will keep them going!
Are the parents staying with the children or separated?
We always promote a family-bonding moment, where parents and children enjoy an activity together as a family. So, parents and children will not be separated. However, if you choose to send your children on this activity alone, it is possible, provided that a babysitter accompanies the children regardless of the age, for insurance purposes (our guides are not responsible for the children).
Is it suitable for kids under 6 years old?
We recommend this walking tour for kids aged 6 or older, because they must know how to read and write in order to enjoy the fun-filled game booklet. Younger kids can join, and they will enjoy it, but they will not be able to play the game, unless a parent or older sibling helps.
Are we going inside the highlights mentioned?
No, unfortunately there is no time to get inside all these monuments otherwise the tour would be too long. After the tour, you can go back to a monument you particularly liked to get inside.
Can I bring a stroller or a wheelchair?
Technically, it is possible to bring a stroller or wheelchair. Please be aware that in many streets, there are very small sidewalks, which are not suitable for strollers or wheelchairs, so you will have to stay on the road. There are also many cobblestone streets: it can therefore become quite a bumpy ride.
What happens if it rains?
The tour will take place, even if it rains. Just make sure you bring an umbrella or rain jacket.
Will my teenage kids like the tour?
Sure they will. They might not want to have the game booklet, but since it is a private tour, our professional guide will adapt their speech to keep your teenagers engaged and entertained throughout the tour.
