Guide did not add information beyond what we already knew from reading description of tour. A private guide should give extra info, the other participants in the tour knew more than she did and were often correcting her knowledge of the Medici family. She also failed to introduce herself, I have no idea what her name was.

I really enjoyed this. The guide was excellent. It was a good thing to do on our first day in Florence because it gave us an overview of the city. Read your Medici history before you go and you will get a lot out of this walking tour!

The guide spent too much time on historical minutiae and dates that eventually become muddled in the listener's mind. Visitors are interested in the family stories of the Medici and others. I would have liked to have visited Santa Croce, and perhaps just strolling the back streets of Florence. We spent time hiking over to the Pitti Palace, but were not taken in. That time was wasted. Discussing current life in Florence would have been interesting, such as the flooding in 20th century. More time was spent walking that visiting inside historic spaces.

We were very impressed with the service we received in Pisa from Viator. The coach was on time and we were met with a friendly smile. The guide was fantastic. Extremely informative with such a memory for detail we were quite blown away. Her name is Rosalyn Pio or something like that. Hence my fascination that she was able to remember so many wonderful facts about the history of Pisa and the Medici family! All in all a marvellous afternoon trip. 10 out of 10 and highly recommended. She especially made it fun for my 2 boys, aged 13 amd 10.

The history and beauty of the gallery are reasons enough to visit. The incredible collection of art and furnishings from the Medicis to Naploeon only adds to a memorable tour.
