Once we found our meeting spot in the rain things looked up. We met Sara and she was simply amazing. She was very easy to understand even though she was having trouble with her microphone and just so full of facts and information. It made what we were looking at so much more meaningful and it was excellent!
We had a marvelous tour! Our guide Angela was the best, very informative and upbeat, just the right pace for the morning. Highly recommended!

I liked our guide, Angela: she spoke very good English for my russian ears and told us lots of interesting stuff about the places we visited!
Guide was beyond Knowledgeable!!! I would recommend this tour every time.
My husband and I loved this tour. It was great to be able to skip the line for the Duomo. The line at the Accademia was still a little long but it was much shorter than had we done this on our one. Our guide Tony was extremely knowledgeable and did a great job of sharing the information without being boring. It was also great to walk Florence and get comfortable with the city and where all the major sites were. Tony also gave us some good restaurant and site recommendations for the rest of our visit. This is a great way to see Florence!

This is the best way to go to avoid the really long lines to get in to the Duomo. It was also a good way to see some of the smaller tourist highlights such as the brass boar that I would have missed on my own. The trip to Academia Gallery to see the David was also a good part of the tour. I have seen copies of the statue many times from all angles, but the guide was able to point out a new perspective. And while a much smaller museum than the Ufizzi, there are some very good paintings there.
Paulo was an excellent tour guide. He was extremely knowledgeable about the art and history of the period.
Truly enjoyed this tour. Our guide Vanessa was very knowledgeable and conducted the tour with a mixture of historical information and humor. So nice to not have to wait in line for tickets or getting into attractions. Florence is a beautiful city, and this tour definitely showcases it for you. A must do when in Florence.
super informative and worth every penny to not have to stand in line
Excellent tour guide Eleeza! She expressed to us so much knowledge of Michelangelo, she wanted to us to feel the emotions of the work we were seeing and she succeeded! Her passion for Florence and its history shone through for the entire tour. Do not settle for the reproduction of David, see the real thing! Good walking tour if you dont have much time in the city, I wish we could have stayed longer. HIghly recommend!!
Fantastic! Our guide Paul knew his history and made our tour educational as well as fun.
Our tour guide was amazing. She really had a passion for art and for Florence. We saw amazing things that I had no idea we would get to see. We all really enjoy the details she provided during the tour and would have never been able to gain such great insights had we had not done a tour and and a guide that had the passion and insights that she did.

Guide was fantastic, however we had to wait for nearly an hour to get into the gallery...was not that impressed.
Our tour guide, Angelo, was very funny and knowledgeable. We really enjoyed the walking tour with him - we actually learned quite a bit about the sights that we saw. I would highly recommend this tour and, especially Angelo, as a guide.
Excellent guide with a deep understanding of art, architecture and churches. Try to do this tour midweek so you see as much as possible.
The guide was very knowledgeable and passionate about art, one of the best guides we have ever had. We really enjoyed seeing David what a fantastic sculpture. The Dumo is enormous and beautiful. I highly recommend this tour.
Sara was great! She has a fun personality and even recommended local dishes we should try while in Florence! Please account for waiting time to get in to see David. It took us about 45 minutes.
Paul Costa was fantastic. If only every other tour guide were as good.
Tour guide was knowledgeable. We got to see many important sights.
Angela was a passionate, very funny tour guide who was well versed in her art, papal, and political history of Italy and specifically Florence. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who's looking to get an in depth detailed tour of the Duomo and the Accademia. As a tip, make sure to book the 9am tour as the later tour may not get admittance into the Duomo. Thanks again Angela!
Florence is such a wonderful and beautiful city and Rosella walked us through everything, explaining what we were seeing and the history behind it. I suppose you could try to find a local guide, but having this booked in advance saved us the trouble. She also gave us good recommendations for lunch and dinner which added to our trip.
Paul Costa was a great tour guide, he was interactive Q and A with tour group, engaging, witty and shared history in an interesting story like manner. Our two children said it was their best guided tour so far.
Excellent walking tour , with fabulous knowledgeable guide who was very experienced and answered all questions . Lovely manner and good fun . Great way to discover the city
5 stars because they don't have 6! Alesandro was an excellent conessuiere of the chianti wines! This is what coming to the Tuscan valley is supposed to be! A must--words do not describe the beauty and the whole set up from ordering the tickets to drop off is easy!
