Excellent introduction to Florence. In fact, before I took this tour, I had my doubts about liking this city afterwards, I was in love with Florence...that's saying something! Our guide, Rose, was friendly and knowledgable and made the city really come alive. Lots of walking, but it gives you a feel for the entire layout of the center of the city from Piazza San Marco to the Ponte Vecchio, a complete orientation to all the major attractions. So glad I booked this tour at the beginning of my stay.

No Duomo but still a really worthwhile way to see and learn about Florence. Our guide was informed, professional and really friendly. The tour of the Accademia Gallery was a highlight!

Very good tour. One of the best interpretations of the statue of David that I have every heard. I always wondered why the scale of the hands and feet seemed wrong - but it had to do with the way the statue was supposed to be viewed. Our guide was very informative. The only downside was that by taking the afternoon tour we didn't get to go inside the church.

This was an excellent tour. Frederica was our guide and made the tour interesting.
Well worth the price being able to skip the lines at the Duomo and especially at the Accademia Gallery to see David!

This was a great tour if you are looking for a half day tour of Florence. It covered the highlights we wanted and started early enough to avoid huge heat and long lines. Our tour guide was great as well

Giovanna was our tour guide - she was phenomenal and made the tour interesting for us and our two teenage sons. It was very hot and we were happy to have the afternoon tour. We had already seen the Duomo in the morning on our own, so the exterior only of the cathedral was perfectly ok with us. The group size was not too big and she kept the tour moving with good information about Florence history and sights. Would recommend

Enjoyed the walking tour of Florence. If you are new to the city, I would highly recommend. It allowed us to get our bearings and a good feel of the city. The guide was informative and we learned a lot about the history. It also gave us direct entry into the Duomo and Accademia Gallery as opposed to waiting on lengthy lines, as it was the height of the season. I liked that we were outfitted with headsets so that we could hear the guide clearly even when we were not standing right near her.

Our guide, Patricia, was warm, engaging and knowledgeable throughout the entire tour. For first-time visitors to Florence, a tour like this really helps you get your bearings and get to know the city through its chaotic streets and buildings.

We walked through the beautiful piazzas and squares, but the best part of the tour was the ability to cut through the endless lines to enter the Galleria dell'Academia and the Cathedral of Santa Maria del Fiore. You will definitely want to skip the lines because start times are not habitually followed here in our our experience and a skip-the-line pass prevents you from standing in lines for hours. Granted, there was still a line to the Galleria, but it was 20 minutes in comparison to the 3 hour one across from us.

Overall, we'd recommend this tour to anyone. If you can, ask for Patricia--she's fantastic!

Loved it! Don't miss this experience! Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly, we saw so much. We went on the first Sunday so didn't get to see David but as we already knew this in advance it was fine we'd nipped in to see him earlier! Worth making this more obvious on the website as a few others were disappointed.

Paul, our tour guide, was the best guide we've had in 3 weeks in Europe on this trip. He was entertaining and educational, and gave insight and meaning to the many things we were seeing. I had been to Florence before, but now I get so much more! The skip the line part didn't work so well getting into the Accademia to see the David, but Paul spoke to someone after we had been waiting for some time, and then we got right in. The Duomo was closed due to it being a Florentine holiday -- would have been nice to know when we booked it. Aside from those two negatives, it was a great tour, and we certainly recommend Paul as a guide.
