Read what other Viator.com travelers think about the Skip The Line: Best of Florence Walking Tour including Accademia Gallery and Duomo. What they loved, what they liked and what they think could be improved, it's all here to help you make the most of your next trip.
This was a fabulous tour, led by Angela, who was lovely as a guide, kept in so entertaining. Unfortunately the Accademia was closed that day due to a strike but we were refunded a portion of the tour (had the opportunity to reschedule or cancel with a full refund as well). Everyone chose the refund portion and went on the walking tour part. It was great and end with a delicious gelato!
Although the Academia was closed due to a strike, our tour guide, Angela, made the tour an outstanding experience. She was great. The weather was in our favor which made the tour even better. I have booked Viator tours in Italy for two separate trips this year (2013) and have enjoyed each one.
This was an excellent tour with an intelligent and friendly tour guide - an art historian who really knew her history and helped put the city and its art in perspective. Very educational and entertaining.
We absolutely LOVED this tour. We only had the day in Florence, and by the end of this tour we felt like we had connected with it's beauty and history in a fun and intelligent way. We felt steeped in the art and the architecture. Our guide was so knowledgeable and was clearly passionate about her work, and the stunning city of Firenze. Highly recommended!
Our walking tour in October was the highlight of our three-day stay in Florence. Our guide, Fedorica, was most knowledgeable about the amazing history of Florence and provided us with more than our full of interesting information and anecdotes not usually in the tourist guides. Since it was Sunday we were unable to go into the Duomo but our memories were truly filled with the history of the buildings and the people, especially the artists and sculptors, who have left their indelible imprint on the churches and museums of the beautiful city of Florence. I highly recommend this tour to anyone spending even a short time in Florence.
Sev B is an amazing tour guide and our time on the tour a terrific investment! Will take advantage of more tours on our next visit, too!
Absolutely loved the walking tour of Florence. It was like our tour guide was telling us a story of Florence and would highly recommend it. The headsets are a must!
Florence is breathtaking just to see on your own but when you walk with an educated highly knowledgeable and entertaining guide you are literally transported back in time! Our guide Izzy was great and funny and her passion for Florence was obvious as she took us through it's rich political and art history. "The David" is beyond words up close. The tour included a tasting of gelato by the Accademia but I would recommend if you have never had gelato before to have it at another gelateria, this one was just ok for me.
I purchased this tour at the last minute and let me tell you, it was WELL worth it...and MORE! Paul was our tour guide and he was simply amazing!!! He gave us so much history about the city and made the tour interactive, forcing the tour members to answer questions! He made the tour so much fun and gave us so much information. This tour was the perfect way to get introduced to the city. I will recommend this tour to anyone travelling to Florence and I will use Dark Rome Tours the next time I'm in Italy - because there will definitely be a next time.
The trip was great. Michelle was our tour guide... she was very knowledgable, spoke great English, worked well with everyone on the tour, and helped us pick out a few restaurants for the rest of our trip!
The outstanding commentary by our guide, Angelo, sparked with humor and passion, made the tour especially memorable. The gelato we had at the end of the tour was definitely the best in Florence!
