Morning tour was just 3 whereas the afternoon piece was 22 people. Still very enjoyable.
the tour was great and the tour guide really made the tour fun. I am sorry I forgot her name but she is the best!
The inferno tour was brilliant! The book was the reason I wanted to go to Florence and being able to go to the places from the book was fantastic. Our tour guide Mario was amazing, he really brought the story to life as well as teaching us some of the history of Florence. We done the full day tour, which just wasn't long enough, I did't want it to end. The afternoon is also an art tour, me and my partner are not art people but we found it very interesting and learnt a lot. We weren't able to use our ticket to go into the dome, bell tower or the crypt as we didn't have time. The ticket lasts for 24 hours but the next day we went to Rome so we couldn't use them then either. If we go back to Florence and I really hope we do, I would happily go on this tour again and would make sure that we had no other plans so we could do everything.
By far my favorite tour! Mario was great and really knew the book! The first part of the half day is solely focused on the book. The second half takes you through the Uffizi Gallery and the Vassari Corridor. I had Vanessa for this part and she was great, too. Loved this tour!
Great guide, Barbara, gave us a lot of information and was very enthusiastic. The locations we visited, including internal visit to Palazza Vecchio Museum and the Baptisery were beautiful, unfortunately the tour was on a Sunday so we could not go inside the Duomo but were given a ticket to view later, recommend booking another day, not Sunday. Not only did we experience the Inferno story buit we learnt oa lot of historical factes and saw great sights.
Our tour guide, Vanessa, was great! We did both segments of the tour, morning and afternoon and I'm glad we did. We learned so much and had a great time!
Mario was great! Both his knowledge and the extras he shared made it an historic adventure
Giulia was great. We took this tour because it toured most of the buildings we wanted to see. The Inferno was a nice twist on the tour. Giulia's tour was informative as well as fun. The group was only 6 people and perfect!
We loved this tour! My husband and I had both read the book and we took our two kids 9 and 14 with us. Our tour guide, Vanessa, was awesome!! She knew the plot of the book very well and was really animated in the way she retold the story as we retraced the steps of Robert Langdon. Our ticket came with access and a private tour of the Palazzo Vecchio, the Baptistry and a pass to climb the bell tower of the Duomo.
Brilliant insight of the route Robert Langdon took, albeit backwards!!
We saw places you would never have noticed if you tried to do this yourself. The Vasari corridor was fascinating for me having never saw it on my last visit to Florence, highly recommended for any Dan a Brown fans.
Unfortunately, I did not clearly read that this tour was in two parts. We did the morning tour with Barbara who was an amazing tour guide. Barbara was very knowledgeable and we were lucky there were only 4 of us on this tour so we got to ask questions and take photographs. Of course, we were not signed up for the afternoon tour, so we missed the Vasari Corridor and the Ufizzi.
Our guide Vanassa, was extremely energetic and engaging and it a great tour, even for my wife, who had never read the book.
Our tour guide, Barbara, did an excellent job of showing us the sights of Florence most directly associated with the novel. She also did a great job of discussing the poetic license Brown took with some of the story lines. This was a fun way to bring the book to life while also spending a beautiful morning walking the streets of Florence. Highly recommended.
The tour was wonderful, mostly because of the guide. She was very knowledgeable and added much more information that expected. It was worth every penny.
We loved this tour and our tour guide Julia. It was as if we were having a college history course in three hours but with joviality. Even if you did not read the book take this tour. the amount of knowledge that you will learn about the Medici's and Dante is incredible.
Really enjoyed the tour. Not only did is cover the Inferno sights, but it gave a good overview of the entire city of Florence.
Fantastic experience make sure you include the Vasari corridor. and our guide was a history professor to boot so got all the lowdown and tips.
Barbara Bandinelli, the local tour guide in Florence, was hands down the best guide I have had on a Viator tour. She knows her art and history inside out and makes the day funny, interesting, and a learning experience. She also does a great job of pointing out great women in history and their contributions. Take this tour regardless if you have read the book. There are no spoilers given away, but it does assure you see all the major attractions in Florence except the David, that is not included in this tour and you will learn throughout the day. This was my third trip Florence and the first time I visited Palazzo Vecchio. I kick myself for waiting so long. I visited in early March 2015, so Florence was actually not crowded and quite manageable. My personal opinion is Florence is best experienced off-season. I highly recommend this tour, and if you can ask for Barbara, you are guaranteed a great experience.
Fabulous. Our tour guide was great, really into both the history of Florence and the book. She truly made the tour memorable. Both my wife and I would highly recommend it.
