The guide was the reason we enjoyed the tour so much. She knew so much and really wanted to be sure we saw and heard everything about the history of Palazzo Vecchio and the tower. The aperitivo was so pleasant that we had dinner at the same restaurant the next evening.

This was an exceptional tour. Our guide Elisa was fantastic. She was a very knowledgeable and informative. We were a little disappointed b/c the tower itself was closed but we were able to go to the level just below that and had beautiful views of Florence and the Duomo. Highly recommend this tour at sunset. Other than the view from Piazzale Michelangelo this is best view at sunset.

I would give this tour more stars if I could. I booked a bunch of tours online prior to leaving for vacation and this tour was the best. We ended up being the only people on our tour which made for an experience like no other at a fantastic price. Florence was magical. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and super friendly. We climbed to the top of the Arnolfo Tour...wow the view. I highly recommend this tour even though the climb up to the top of the tour may not be for everyone. Two thumbs up for Viator!!!

O Palazzo Vecchio era incrível, o guia tinha bastante conhecimento. Já as muralhas são dispensáveis, você tem uma vista melhor e mais bonita da Piazzale Michelangelo, sobre a torre, não subimos. Nosso jantar foi em um restaurante na Piazza Della Signoria, foi muito bom, mas não há menu, é tudo surpresa. Eu não compraria com jantar novamente.

We completed this tour on a very wet day in Florence which meant we were unable to view Florence from the Arnolfo Tower. we were offered a viewing the next day but unfortunately this was not convenient for us.Regardless our tour guide was very good with a genuine love of what she was doing. It was a small group which always helps. I would have rated this tour a 5 if we had been able to complete the tower tour.

Palazzo was good , the guide was GREAT but we didnt get to go up the tower as it was over crowded - so waste of money., though the ticket remains valid for 6 months - we had return tickets next day .. so people buying this - be prepared to go back to go up the tower.

The dinner is just downstairs in a restaurant , which was not the same idea i got when i see caption sunset tour with dinner we definitely didnt see the sunset even .

Dinner was inside a restaurant not outside of the restaurant even food was ordinary - NOT recommended.

Just book the palazo tour with the guide - thats enough.

Palazzo Vecchio is a beautiful building and the opportunity to view Florence at sunset from the tower was great. We did get the impression that the tour was a bit rushed.
