The tour guide Christina was amazing. The tour was fantastic.
Loved this! Christina was a wonderful guide and this was one of the best things we did. The views from the top of the dome are amazing and so worth the climb!
Well worth it. It and #39;s crowded coming down which is a bummer. If you and #39;re claustrophobic this isn and #39;t for you. But for amazing views of Florence I and #39;d strongly recommend. We loved it. 463 steps up!
Really great tour, guide Kristina was very informative and although there are a lot of stairs to climb, there was no hurry and you could do it at your own pace. The views from the top are worth the climb alone. Excellent tour!
I enjoyed this tour. The tour guide was friendly, helpful and very well informed. She managed some chaotic fellow tourists with tact and good humour.
The views from the dome were amazing and helped me understand the lay out of the city
Wonderful to escape the lines and see things, especially the frescoes inside the dome, close up with an informative guide.
Don't do the trip if you can't climb
The ice cream at the end was good!
Marco brought the city to life. Very funny guy too. Highly recommended!
Amazing views at the top and the climb wasn and #39;t that bad. It and #39;s 463 steps and my wife was dreading it. However, she made it up just fine. You don and #39;t have to be in good shape to do it, but there and #39;s many very tight spaces. Very memorable tour. Don and #39;t miss the basilica and museum afterwards.
This was a terrific experience! The guide, Valentina, was superb. She was knowledgeable and interesting, with a fun personality. She escorted us through the cathedral and the baptistry and climbed with us through layer upon layer of the dome, explaining the history, the architecture, and the art as we went. She helped us take the perfect photos and pointed out landmarks from the top. An excellent tour and tour guide!
Amazing! We got to see things that were off limits to general public, we saw the best of the best, our guide was fabulous! Highly knowledgeable guide.
Excellent tour! We loved our tour guide and seeing the beautiful Duomo. The gelato was great, too! Would highly recommend.
amazing experience walking up the 400 steps was quite hard but views brill
Is one of those things you have to do if you are in Florence, definitely Yes!
Loved this tour! Seeing Florence from the top of the Duomo was breathtaking! The stair climb was fun, although there were some very tight spots! Especially with other tours coming down while we were going up. But to see the dome fresco so close up was well worth the climb.
Outstanding tour, wonderful views, and excellent tour guide!
Very worthwhile! Skip the massive line, backstage access, very knowledgeable and friendly guide. Overall, a very good value.
Bennedetta was the best guide ever! Super nice and extremely knowledgeable! I would highly recommend this to anyone who is in good physical condition and is NOT claustrophobic in any way. You are climbing 463 steps of carved stones in very narrow stairwells that get smaller the higher you go. If that's not a problem, it's well worth the physical effort when you reach the top and the journey down is nothing.
Probably the best thing we did in Florence.
Very nice small group of 6 people. Guide very warm and interactive, as well as knowledgeable. Excellent English skills. On the climb up to the top of the dome he made sure we could keep up and kept us together through the crowded places. The gelato at the end was a great touch.

Wow! What a great tour. I did the tour on Sept 12th. The meeting point was easy to find. Only a short 5min walk to the Duomo. Our guide was Vanessa. She was very knowledgable and informative, without giving us too much information. The walk to the top of the Duomo is not easy, but if you're reasonably fit, you will get there. The steps are small and the area is confined. Sometimes you have to wait on the stairs whilst people coming down have to pass. The climb is well worth the effort. A bonus is being able to access the Terrace mid way through the climb. The views over the city are great from the top, and there is plenty of time to take it all in before the decent. The close up views of the paintings inside the Duomo are unforgettable, and the guides help in interpreting them is very helpful. To top it off after the Duomo tour there's a look inside the Baptistry next door. Overall, a great afternoon.
We loved this tour and our guide so much. She went over and beyond to relate the history of each location and the art. Ending with gelato was an inspired choice too!
Gabriela was wonderful! Her passion for her town engaged all of s! The tour was well organized and timely. We will remember it forever! We took the time to locate the meeting p,ace ahead of time. Good thing because it was difficult o find.
A long climb up, but so worth it!
