      • More than a guide: Even by GoBe standards, your tour leader is special. Known as a "docent" (that's Latin for teacher), this Ph.D. or M.A.-level scholar-guide's passion for Florence will make the difference between seeing this city and experiencing it. 
      • It's personal: This consult is totally tailored to your small private group of up to 6. Choose your own departure time, set a pace that works for you, and customize a walk that's in step with your passions. Even tour length can be flexible. 
      • We come to you: Your docent will meet you where you're staying, armed with maps, guidebooks and an encyclopedic knowledge of Florence's ins and outs. You'll walk your surrounding neighborhood together and learn about the shops, bistros and bars, bakeries, historic churches and other sights around you. Plus the transport options you'll need as you explore further – we can even help with purchasing venue tickets.
      • Experience more Florence: This brief, customized intro will help you make the most of your time in town. You'll walk away informed and confident – ready to explore this captivating city like a local, even if it's your first time in town. 
      • Get a jump: Let us know any special interests or questions you have in mind when booking your Welcome tour, and we can personalize it even better. Your docent will  arrive pre-prepped with just the info, answers, and suggestions you need.
