The tour was very good and guide William very informative and polite
Before our trip to Italy we were advised to book a tour for the popular sites so as to Skip the Line. So we did.
We are so glad that we did because not only did we get to see the places that we wanted to see and take a few hundred photos, we were privileged to have Angelo as our guide. He was key for us in seeing the picture and story behind the art and the places we visited. The tour would have been more that worth the money with a brand new person, but Angelo made this an experience that we will not forget. He told us the story and history behind what we were looking at and also gave us the Italian view of the history of the times.He made this a real bargain!!!
Don't even hesitate if you are on the fence on this one. We would take to same tour again if we ever get back to Florence.
Wow! I was a little leery when we started out because at first it seemed would duplicate things we learned and saw on our Dan Brown tour, but our tour guide -- Paul -- was probably the best tour guide I have ever had. He really made the history come alive. I mean, I've seen the David several times before, but never did I see it the way Paul had us see it. This was easily the best tour I have ever taken. If I could give 10 stars I would!
The tour guide was very engaging and bubbly. It made a potentially boring walking tour into a very delightful overview of the city, the Medici family, politics, economics and of course the arts. She sounded like an art student or even teacher since she made the people looking at an artwork to think and be involved with the image. Two thumbs up!
Really fabulous and knowledgeable guide! These tours really are worth the money as we have done several now and they have all been of a certain standard! Great to see David and have him explained along with all the otheir works of note in the academia
Our favorite tour of our entire time in Italy. Paul was incredibly intelligent on all aspects of art history - and went way beyond the textbook information that you can read anywhere. We never looked at Florence the same way again after he taught us how to look for the history of art on the side of buildings, etc. He really loves what he does and wants people to understand the amazing art history and culture in Florence
Good tour, appreciated the free time at Accademia to explore other areas, or simply appreciate David a little longer.
This was an amazing tour. Paul the tour guide made the tour both extremely informative and lots of fun, his style of guiding was very relaxed. He asked and answered lots of questions, making us really think about the reasoning behind the great works of art we saw, in particular Michaelangelo's David. We came away from the tour with a much better sense of some of the history behind Florence. A must do for visitors to the city!!!
It's amazing how much you can pack into 3 hours. Our guide was incredibly knowlegible about art history which made the experience a real memorable one.
A concentrate of Florence in few hours with an excellent guide, Mrs Elisabeth.
Don't miss it
Our guide was fabulous and so knowledgeable about a Florence. She made the history come alive and understand Michaelangelo so much better. I would recommend everyone have this tour if you are visiting Florence for the first time.
We are so glad that we booked this tour. Our guide, Patricia, was so friendly and extremely knowledgable of the history of Florence. She provided a very informative and interesting morning as we walked and visited all of the most notable buildings in Florence. When she took us to the Accademia Gallery to see Michelangelo's "David", it was a truly emotional experience.
Great info on highlights of Florence. Made seeing these sights more meaningful with our knowledgeable and entertaining guide.
This was a very good tour and our guide was great! We enjoyed the tour and believe it's definitely worth going with a guide. The headsets worked well so we could hear our guide at all times. We did have a short wait as they let in different groups, but the line for others (not in a group) stretched down the block, so skip the line is the way to go!
Great tour. Our tour guide, Tiziana, was so knowledgeable. The evening tour was perfect, no one was at the Accademia. We had David all to ourselves!
Florence was such a nice place to walk around. The guide was very knowledgeable.
"Wonderful". The walking tour was amazing and so was our guide Angela. The importance of the great works of Michael Angelo, about the Medici family and other important aspects were wonderfully explained by our guide. Worth every cent
Excellent Tour. Our guide was very knowledgable and helpful. Michelangelos David was the greatest part of the tour.
Loved Florence and David of course! Guide great and always counting heads. A great tour
Our guide was very informative and passionate. He kept us involved by testing our knowledge on what we knew before we started the tour and what we learned on the tour. When I looked around, our guide (Paul Costa) was the most enthusiastic!!! I enjoyed Florence so much more because I learned so much.
