Aside from a very crowded meeting place and a bit of slow start this tour was great. The guide really knew her information and cared about sharing it with the visitors. We began with some information about the square and the Baptistry before going inside the Duomo. The coverage inside there was great however, we were a little surprised at the sudden ending of the tour at the front of the church. The other part of the walking tour continued on to the basement level and we were left inside the church to wander around. This tour is a must if you want to see the church, but are short on time. I would recommend the longer walking tour if you have the time and can climb stairs. The coordinator actually asked us if we wanted to join the longer tour at the beginning, but I was not sure about our time schedule or just how many more places on the itinerary had steps so declined.
First class coordinator as we had travel delays. We received a telephone call a few minutes before the start of the tour. The coordinator was able to slot us onto the next tour allowing us time to arrive, and time to spare before the start of the tour. Our guide was very informative and had a friendly and professional approach. Definitely recommend this website for booking tours.

Skip the line was invaluable as there was a very very long line and it was extremely August. The tour guide was extremely knowledgeable and friendly. The Duomo was amazing and is definitely worth visiting.
Skip the line is always invaluable, but we took this tour on a very hot day in August so our appreciation was elevated! The tour guide was very helpful in accommodating our stroller for our 2 year old. We enjoyed the information we heard, especially the bit about Dante inspiring all of Italy to speak the Florentine dialect. The Duomo is so lovely inside, it's definitely a must-see.
Buy these tickets! I can't imaging standing in lines that wrapped halfway around the Duomo in the hot hot July sun for hours. The plaza in front of the church has hundreds thousands? of tourists mingling and taking selfies. it was a challenge finding the tour company. Note: if you can't spot your guide just ask any other tour operator. They all know each other and are helpful to direct you. Again, standing in line in July in Florence is one of the unspoken rings of Hell in Dante's Inferno, Buy skip the line tickets!
wonderful tour. loved the history and the information. the walk to the top of the Duomo was wonderful experience.
Thee guide was very knowledgeable
Good tour, would do again. Thanks.
My husband only choose the train ticket only to Florence. It was fantastic. Our guides were Maurizio and Valentina they were great. They kept us entertained throughout the train process and provided information about Florence. They were very professional and customer service oriented. Love that trip with them.
Next time we are in Rome my husband and I will for sure use your services. Thank you Again Valentina and Maurizio. The Villalba Family
