Angelo was a fantastic tour guide, so knowledgeable and passionate about this beautiful city that he calls home. It was peak tourist season when we were there and the crowds were quite amazing but Angelo managed to keep us apart from them and was so captivating that you didnt really notice them after awhile. If you only have one day in Florence I would thoroughly recommend this tour

Excellent walking tour of the Accademia, the Duomo, and the Uffizi Gallery. Our guide in the morning was excellent, and she provided incredibly interesting art history facts about the art we saw in the Accademia. Huge accolades for Angelo, our tour guide for the Uffizi, who has clearly studied art history and is passionate about art and art education. He made every single artwork we saw come alive with his analysis, which translated art concepts into language that everyone, with or without an art background, could appreciate. His tour was the best art museum tour I have joined in Europe.

Our tour guide for both the morning and afternoon tour was Angelo. We found him to be exceedingly knowledgeable and passionate about the history of Florence, which came through in the delivery of the information. Angelo was both entertaining and humorous. He kept the whole group on track. Angelo enriched our experience of Florence. Skipping the enormous lines at all venues was well worth the price. Highly recommend Angelo and this tour to anyone coming to Florence.

This was the best way to see the high lights of Florenec. Our guides , Rose in the morning and Angelo in the afternoon were superb. Their knowledge, anecdotes and snippets of fact and rumours made for an engaging and entertaining day. Both of them shared a passion for Florence and the art and culture they shared with us.
The walking was not too much, easy for people of all ages and we were shown areas off the beaten track that we never would have found ourselves. They encouraged questions and answered each and everyone. Radios and headsets were great and all worked well.
